starbucks sunday: a vlog.

as i sipped on my tall nonfat caramel macchiato on this lovely starbucks sunday,
i thought it was finally time i tried my hand at vlogging.

as a lover of the beauty gurus on youtube, i have thrown around the idea again & again of making my own videos. however, as i do not yet have the appropriate equipment to properly film makeup tutorials & such, i have opted to film the accent tag today. this tag has been floating around the internet for what feels like an eternity, & i have watched what feels like millions of these uploads, but i thought what the heck...

so, there you have it! i hope you enjoyed my forray into the vlogosphere.

I don't know why but I always thought you'd have a thicker accent.

"The devil's beating his wife with a frying pan!!" = raining when the sun is out. Love the video girl!
I love these! I have yet to do a vlog and I've been blogging for 4 years! I need to try it. I've seen the accent vlogs and they are so fun. It's cool to see how people from different areas pronounce words :)

I did the accent vlog and felt so silly with my thick midwestern accent! You don't really have much of an accent, or at least it didn't seem so to me. :)

I love accent vlogs! A lot of your answers were similar to mine. I was surprised because I live in Michigan, which is about as far as you can get from Louisiana without going to Hawaii or Alaska.

I can't remember whose vlog I heard this on, but it's called a sun shower! I wish I remembered who said it so I could refer you to their accent video. When I made mine I shrugged it off and said I would just say, "Hey, look, it's raining and the sun is shining!" Then again, I have a talent for stating the obvious. Also, I don't think it ever sun showers in Michigan. The sun and precipitation do not get along well here.
You did SO good! much better than mine- lol! I love your accent. Maybe I'll do this theme next time. I think you should definitely vlog again- love the ending!! haha xo

So cute! Love your first vlog! ;)

when the sun is shining at the same time it's raining, it's said that the "devil is beating his wife" haha weird, I know.

Have a great weekend!

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
