HI FRIDAY

friday’s a little bittersweet for me because my boyfriend leaves for hong kong tomorrow and i won’t see him for 2 and a half weeks. i also head to stockholm and italy next wednesday and i’m already feeling the travel anxiety that comes along with a long trip out of the country. BUT i did just download the  app and i love it! it organizes all of my connecting flights easily in this one place (since i always seem to lose the confirmation emails!)

i am teaching LA blogshop today and our (still 2 spots left in that one if you wanna join us in hollywood!) i hope you have a great weekend everyone! do you have any fun trips coming up? any cool travel apps you love? -bri

VIDEO IS HERE, I TELL YA

i am more of a visual person. so i thought i would show you a bunch of the ways that videos are now evolving. from large brands to blogs, videos are showing up everywhere. in our (the next one is in two weeks we go over tips on how to shoot your videos with a nice camera or even an iphone. we talk all about the equipment to buy, music resources and styling tricks. then we show you how to edit it all in photoshop. how to add text, title cards, organizing your files, adding music, and how to do it all quickly! it’s a one day crash course on videos for your business.

check out some awesome ways that video can be used…and subscribe to the here!

HOW-TO

whether it’s a DIY project, a recipe or a fashion how-to…sometimes video helps explain the story better and gives people more clarification. for instance, i love what is doing. short lifestyle videos with style…

or this video we made a few years ago showing all the different ways i like to wear scarves. video is also a great way to show your personality on your website, that doesn’t always translate through photos!

 

FOR YOUR SHOP:

my friend elise from pennyweight has filled with beautiful items from various makers. i think video is such a fantastic & simple way to show off the items in your shop! i think it really gives people a better idea of how the items look in their environment. check out this short video of an industrial lamp:

and what about lookbooks? they come alive on the video platform! make your shop shine just like this adorable vintage shoe video from

 

INTERIORS:

my friend joy over at recently did a before & after video of her office makeover with . loved the results! show off your space in more than just 2-D.

 

TRAVEL:

some of the favorite videos we have put together around here have been based on our travels & adventures. some more highly produced, and some just shot on my iphone and edited in photoshop (that’s what we teach you in our !) this is when and i traveled to barcelona and he documented it…

and a fun, home video style one from our girls trip to palm springs. i just rewatched this and smiled the entire time. video is such an awesome way to bring you right back to happy times.

 

FAMILY:

and family! the perfect way to document your little ones. i will probably take one million videos when i have kids of my own. i mean, how cute is birdie from videos. unreal…

 

EVENTS:

gosh, this wedding gets me every time. the lovely day of max & margaux, shot by . we have students that sign up so they can learn how to edit their own wedding footage and save some cash…

we found it was really helpful when we first started blogshop to document the experience so people would know what to expect from the workshop…

and these are only a couple of the ways that video is changing the online world. it’s time to jump on the bandwagon! what do you think about videos? do they intimidate you? excite you? bore you? what’s your take?

NASHVILLE IN SESSION

okay, so before i start i want to address something. i did a survey about the blog the other day and asked the question “do you like hearing about blogshop?” and 83% of you said yes! however i still got a lot of comments about people feeling like they were too long or too often, which i can definitely understand. i am still going to post about the events because a lot of people do benefit from finding florists, event spaces, & even gift ideas from these posts, but i definitely want to give you the option to click through & read about it if you are interested and scroll right on by if you’re not. we put so much love into planning each one of the events, so i still love having a place to document how they all came together. thanks for following along!

we set up shop in . my friend james from hosted (i was so happy with how much ), and elise from  helped us pull a bunch of nashville gems together for the weekend. check out this post for some of the spots we were able to visit on our down time!

we hung these adorable  from  on the backs of their chairs. i always love watching the students look their their goodie bags when they first arrive to class.

ps, we are teaching in LA, stockholm and san fran next…join us ! spots are filling up 🙂

i have to say, my favorite part of the planning process is working with the decor gals. it’s so interesting to watch them each come up with their own unique ideas that feel like their city. this time around we worked with two extremely lovely ladies, chelsea from (obsessed with ) and . they adorned the tables with simple greens (which i am a big fan of) and even made these gorgeous dyed name tags for each student.

and can we talk about this backdrop that the girls hand dyed! so so gorgeous and fitting for nashville. we put that thing to good use on our break times…
