saw a boy with the bieber haircut to a tee. hair flip and all. i was embarassed for him... (oh yeah, VLOG.)

It was at debate as to how to commence this post. Should I be all "oooh" and allude to the mystery to come? (Ooh, alluring... What could it be? What is it? Ohhh, Lexy, she's SO mysterious and alluring and spy kids-y...) Or should I go with the, "HEY Y'ALLLZ IT'S MA VLOG" approach? I guess starting with this mini debate gave it all away, so I'm just going to go with the latter...

HEY Y'ALLLZ IT'S MA VLOG. Finally! I know! Are you excited! That should have been a question mark! Oh well! We're just TOO stoked! Yay! Yay!

Now, before we get started, here are a few things to note:
1) MY VOICE SOUNDS RASPY ("man like" would be the negative connotation) but here's why: I went to Wonderland yesterday and went on Behemoth three times... so hah! (FINE BUSTED, I FILMED THIS A WEEK AGO. My video/ radio voice is, for real, one of which I despise. It's very tween-boy-voice-cracking. I will never fulfill my dream of being Ryan Seacrest... Maaan.)
2) I sound like a fool and it's 13 minutes and I'm not going to force you all to watch it with a good sales line (Do you love Lexy?! Do you love this blog?! Then you'll LOVE this vlog! *Insert chime to accentuate the rhyme of blog and vlog*). But, at last, I know it's not the MOST exciting thing ever and I encourage you all to not feel pressured to watch it! Mkaaay.
3) Didn't answer ALL questions (sorry! *kisses*), but that is as I most likely answered them here or here and that would be why! If not, then ask again, and I will happily respond. Although, probably fortunately for you, not via video. Woot!

Uh, so I guess, uh, enjoy and, uh. *cringe, this is going to be bad.*

Phew! Done?! Okay. Instead of sounding insecure, I will confidently say: HEY GUYS! I'm SO funny! I'm hilarious! I think I'm hilarious! Wow! The best vlog you've ever seen?! Oh you're unfollowing me?! Ha-ha. Ohhh, you. Why would you do that?! You love me! I'm funny! I'm awesome! Right! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Ha-ha-ha-ha! Ohhh, look at us! All joyous and funny and happy and foolish and silly and slumber partying together! Ha-ha-ha! GTs all around! (Good times!)

*awkward pause.*

Um, anyways. HEY IF YOU HAVE A VLOG, SEND ME THE LINK! (This is a tad weird, but I actually really enjoy watching vlogs whilst doing pointless things.**)

**Example of pointless things. From early 2010. Summer goal: fill in one of these pages each day I'm home. Which I will be doing as soon as this post is completed. For real! (Oh, and isn't it convenient how I randomly chose the pages with writing + reflected photobooth = :/?)

^^Well, this is awkward...

^^OH NO. My buttox appears to be on FIRE!

Anyways, I believe this post accurately depicts the accumulation of many pointless aspects of my life that I so happen to enjoy.

And, before I forget and be all rude and such, I just wanted to THANK YOU ALL. Why? You may inquire. Well, to be quite frank and creepy, I love you all. Thank you for enduring my blog for a year - or a few months, or a week, or a day - I honestly appreciate all your thoughts. So thanks for continuously stopping by and making me feel special. :)

I'm definitely the kind of person that gets all dressed up - warning: cliche up ahead - with no place to go... or stays up late to sketch some pointless doodles in my sketch book (see above)... or spends days sewing crafty outfits ... or thrifts at smelly old lady stores... or religiously checks out clothes i'll never be able to afford ... or engrosses myself in this silly little thing we call "fashion"... and it's really exciting to think "Okay, well, sure that may seem a little pointless, but hey, it's what I LOVE and I have a place to share it!" I really look forward to posting all my thoughts and rambles and outfits and creations and I love hearing from you all. It's not that I'm exceptionally unique or different from the people in my life (you go gurl! wear that Hollister! ...ew. okay, well maybe not..), but it's that I have interests that not everyone shares and it's nice to have an arena to share it. I've found my people! (you! That's YOU!)

So, in conclusion, *virtual hugs* to you all and I hope you continue to stop by and make my days awesome!

(best blogging friends for lifeZ.)

I love the layout and the drawings and everything! Ummm so I did watch your entire video which I thought was a bad idea at first, but then I ended up laughing a lot! Here goes: I like unicorns and so do little girls! What do you think of THAT sentence?! Subtle and hidden enough? LOL! It's 2:35 AM in Boston, so I am pretty tired and bored right now. You and me are alike in the fact that I love love LOVE the city! When I go off to college I am going to college in either NYC or here in Boston the city. I can never get enough of the city. Yeah...so I watched your whole video...just like you watched my live webcast which was a horrible fail!
check out my trendy blog!

Ruta, Look Ugly in a Photograph said...

So those drawings are amazing. I love your vlog. You're too cute, haha. I love hearing how bloggers sound. It adds a different perspective to them and adds more reality to the person behind the computer screen.

Do more vlogs please and post more drawings :)

betz said...

PS: Maybe you wanna check out the new blog my friend and I made. It's everything NYC and more!

Jen said...

i don't care what you say. i still think you're going to be the next ryan seacrest.
haha no but i loved this video, especially the multiple intros. and the lizzie mcguire movie was the bomb. the BOMB. :)
yay for your blog anniversary!!!

kyki said...

Your vlog definitely was both explosive and quirky (not unlike a unicorn) and I enjoyed every second of it! Haha. You remind me of my friend S who is absolutely nutters, yet adorable. :) Tee hee. (And no, I'm not trying to insult you, so if I did, sorry!)

I HEART THE SAME MOVIES AS YOU! Especially Mean Girls and Lizzie McGuire. <3 Ohhh man. I love guilty pleasure flicks! Since you like the Breakfast Club, I'm wondering if you've ever seen Sixteen Candles... If not, go out and rent it! 80s FILMS FTW. 8)

As for your question, I'm going to the University of Alberta in the fall, which I'm totally stoked on. I'm going to study psychology and English. Woot woot! :D

(...Now I'm probably going to discover some horrible grammatical error in either my comment of blog, seeing as I just told you I'm studying English next year. >< FAIL.)

Keep up the awesome...awesomeness? Haha.

- xo, kyki


Ps. Any hints on getting more followers? You have oh so many, and I have oh so few. BUT I'M JUST AS AWESOME, RIGHT? RIGHT?...YEAH....*facepalm* But legit. Tips?

kyki said...

Leah said...

Great to hear your voice... "gosh, this is me." That intro made me smile big time. Okay, this is the best vlog I've seen. Hahaha! Love it girl. xoxo

Erika said...

Can I just say that you are literally one of the most talented people I have ever encountered? Not only do you put together the most amazing ensembles; but you are a fantastic artist. AND...seeing you in vLOG form was such a blast! Love!! :)

K said...

basically I think you're amazing. Like, really. You totally rock my socks. It's rare to find someone so awesome. almost as rare as seeing a unicorn (eh eh? nice right?). I vote for more vlogs because they entertain me but really just do whatever make your fantastic self happy. :)

LyddieGal said...

Chic on the Cheap

Gizelle | Vanilla Ice Cream said...

Omg Lizzie McGuire was the best! Better than Hannah montana will ever be! Remember that episode where lizzie had a unicorn on her sweater for picture day?? Dude, that wasn't even meant to be discreet. That was a real episode!
That last picture is freakin hilarious!

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

hahahha ohhh you guys!

roxanne said...

i like how that epic music starts to drown out your voice in the end, it's that epic haha. you're hilarious, such a cute video (*cough*unicorn*cough). now i have a distinct urge to get me something from an alpaca..

Stevia said...

are you kidding?
you have to be kidding
i LOVE your raspy voice

my voice is all pitchy and annoying
when I have a cough, I sometimes refuse to take any medicine, cause my voice got all raspy ;p

it's too bad your tiara didn't have more airtime
it's cute!

oh, and NYC is also one of the city i would love to live in

Stevia said...

oh oh oh

i actually prefer Pegasus

unicorn is cool too ;p

Gets said...

Hahaha you got a really nice voice! :D And hmm, my favourite era has got to be the Regency (if that's an era), after being so over-influenced by romance novels. :\ And the clothes then are soo pretty too. But of course I would have to be born into nobility, or I'd probably end up a farmer, yknow? Since that's what most of them do apparently..

Haha keep blogging! :D Love your posts, they're really cute and funny. Great drawings too! xD Love your sense of humour.

<3 Gets!


Francesca said...

I love your blog! Maybe we can work on a project together in the future???

Hannah :0] said...

No, that was not totally UNICORNS lame, I thought you were funny! And if you lived in Des Moines and I were older or you were younger, we would be BFFs. I bet. (: So maybe I might do a vlog too! (inspired by youu)


Hannah :0] said...

Oooh! Oooh! I <3 Asians too. Which means i love you! lol

April said...

LEXY that was the most enjoyable 13 minutes and 18 seconds of my life, I'm not even kidding. I LOVED IT. Like, um, can i be your best friend now? :D we can ride unicorns to new york city together :)
