Hot Chocolate & Chit Chat With Elle Sees! (Video)

Hey you! I hope you had an awesome weekend. Mine was uneventful but I am not complaining one bit! We all need some down time, right? One thing I did was film several videos, including one today! This year I'm aiming to put even more than a face and a personality behind this blog than usual, which isn't easy. A way to do that is by doing is a monthly vlog letting you all know what I've been up to. I hope you watch and enjoy my accent hearing more about my life. I'll have my usual Rants+ Raves post back next week. But for now, let's have a little Hot Chocolate and Chit Chat!

Topics Mentioned:
  • Christmas
  • My fam. My pup. Pics included!
  • Good/bad things so far for 2014
  • How awesome YOU are. Yes, you.
  • 2 beauty products I like/don't like
  • A tale of HAIR SABOTAGE!
  • Me, being awkward (as usual)!

Something else I want to incorporate is the BLOGGER OF THE WEEK. I plan on doing one a week, and to make up for earlier weeks in January, I am giving 3 shout outs this week:

  • VeroSays--she tagged me in the 5 Beauty Things I'm Not Apologizing For, which I shared here. It's a fun tag!
  • GlossyGlamBlog--tagged me in Beauty Bloggers Made Me Buy It.
  • Beauty By Arielle--She's mentioned in the video. Find out what she "made" me buy in the video!
Again, I want to thank everyone for the sweet comments and amazing emails from my On Why I Take Seflies post-. I admit, I was kinda overwhelmed--something about putting myself out there front and center made me retreat a little after posting it. I was worried you'd think me conceited, which if that's the case, then the point was definitely missed. So my apologies for being away from visiting you, but I'm fixing that right as you're reading this. xo


  1. Who doesn't love hot chocolate and that is one cute mug!

  3. nice! we love hot chocolate!
    check our blog?

  4. I love this new feature, Elle! I really hope they can repair your hard drive!

  5. My hairdresser the other day when we were looking through some photos on my iphone goes "it's a good thing I know you are a blogger otherwise I would think you were really into yourself with all those selfies". Taking pics of yourself and posting is scary right?

  6. Your mug is so cute! I love fun mugs. I had one for the holidays and loved drinking out of it. So sorry to hear about your hard drive. That's happened to me and I thought the world was going to end. HaHaHa Horrible that she recommended a product and it took another for your hair to be back to normal again. Some people! Have a great week Elle.

  7. Your mug is so cute. I love this new feature.

  8. One of the things I'm most thankful for, is that all my family lives right here in the same town. I'm lucky to get to see them anytime I want, and we all get together pretty often. My Christmas was pretty good. It came and went in a flash tho. I don't like that.

    Loved the video. I like how you talk about many topics, but it all flows together. Some vlogs I have watched are just the vlogger talking, not really making any points. And that's usually when I click the X. Have a wonderful Monday, Elle!

  9. Great vid, Elle. Love that mug, and good to hear about the Pantene BB cream....not the other product:P

  10. glad you had a relaxing. I had a nice and relaxing Christmas. Love this new feature.

  11. Glad you had a relaxing weekend. Those are always the best ones right?

  12. Loved the mug. Love the series idea too...really cool. Relaxing is always needed :)) Sometimes I don't get enough of that. I hope you have a gorgeous week doll xx

  13. That mug is so cute I would totally keep it around for winter! I love the Pantene BB Cream. I am so attached to my hair and a hair product junkie and so I am really hesitant to take advice from people on hair products. Sorry the product that person recommended was so horrible. I really liked the video!

  14. You are a natural on camera, darling!


  15. Do you even know how adorable you are???

  16. I used to hate hot chocolate. I don't know why, but I did. Now as an adult it's my favorite hot beverage.

  17. I love your first "Hot Chocolate & Chit Chat" Vlog, you are such a natural on video. Love you mug, and hope you get good news fron Best Buy. By the way what's the name of the product that did work on your hair.

  18. Thanks Elle, I was asking about the good one the one you are recommending, not the bad one... LOL

  19. I *love* your vlogs. I come for the accent; I stay for the charm. Hearing you talk is so entertaining.

  20. Great post! Regarding your closing comments: It's not conceited. It's self-celebration! It's what every one of us women need to get comfortable with and do often. When we do, we give others the permission to do so, too. :) T.

  21. That mug is so cool =)

  22. awesome video, elle! you are great :) wishing you a great remaining 2014!

  23. I love this idea for a video! So creative and it's fun to just get a chance to "talk" to the gurus!

  24. You're adorable, and so is your mug! Another great video :) Happy Monday!

  25. Hey girl, thanks for the shoutout! I didn't even know until I looked at my Google Analytics today haha.

    Anywho, cute video and now I want hot chocolate even though it's 12:30am and I should be in bed lol!

    I read your "selfies post". I'm so sorry that you've come across so many truly evil spirited people in your life. That old lady in Target, wtf!??! You are a gorgeous woman and you are right in not letting comments like these ruin your day.

    I'm a newbie blogger and I'm like you were and too self-conscious to post any face pics (only done one full face post so far). Maybe someday I'll grow out of that, we shall see!

    You post was inspiring to say the least!

    p.s. In 2 weeks we'll be the same age! :) I always like coming across other beauty bloggers in my age range b/c I feel like there's so few of us!

  26. That intro music made me do a little dance in my chair! haha :)
    I use Pantene BB Cream and I absolutely LOVE it!!!!!

  27. Hot chocolate is my favourite drink :)

  28. I love your videos, you are always so sweet!!
    Hot chocolate is perfect in this time of the year :DD
    Xxx beauty



  29. hehe I love this! Looking forward to next month's :) Your videos always make me laugh/smile. That mug is absolutely adorable. How bizarre that product damaged your hair! I don't think you have frizzy hair in your pics EVER lol you have some of the best hair of bloggers I read so whatever you're doing... keep it up!

  30. I can't believe an Instagram follower would have NO life, and go through picking apart your pictures! That makes me SO mad. By the way, I have never seen you with frizzy hair, and even if it happens every now and then, you live in the humid South...duh. I bet you she had scaly dry northern skin. Just sayin'.

  31. Nice video!
    You are very easy to understand, so now I'm wondering: What accent do you have?!
    I'm no native speaker and for me you talk wonderfully! :D

  32. Awwww, cute! I love the hot chocolate chit chat idea — and I don't think you have ANY problems making this blog personal. It's what I love about it. :)
