How To Use Vine (The Basics)

Here’s a beginner’s guide to using Vine.

From the home screen, drag the screen down to refresh your feed and show the most recent posts.

“Explore” lets you browse popular people and videos that are trending.

“Activity” is where you’ll find your notifications — people who’ve liked or commented on your videos, new followers, that sort of thing.

“Profile” brings you to your personal profile, where you can view your posted videos and adjust your settings. The person icon in the upper right when you’re in profile view, allows you to find people to follow, either from your contacts, twitter, or via search.

To post a video, click the camera in the upper right. To film, just hold your finger on the screen. The green bar shows you how much you’ve filmed. You can exit out of the app before you’re finished with your video and your post will be saved as you left it. You can also choose between your normal camera and the front-facing camera.

When you’re done, click the check box in the bottom right to review your Vine. Click “next” where you will be able to add a caption, hashtags, tag friends, or add a location.

You also have the option to share your Vine on different platforms, like twitter and facebook. Click done to post your video.

The smiley face below the caption is where you click to like a video, and the speech bubble right next to it is for leaving comments.

Once your video is posted to your feed, you have the option to share it (if you didn’t already) or delete it. In order to share your post via email, click to share, and then choose the embed option and you’ll be able to send a link of your vine via email.

Hope this was helpful!

JANUARY Favorites


After seeing a lot of YouTube beauty gurus posting their favorite monthly makeup products, I decided to start doing my own monthly favorites videos! (And yes, I got a bit of a late start considering it’s mid-March and this is my January favorites, but… I’ll get the hang of it. February favorites will be up in a couple days too!)

My favorites each month might not be in the same “categories” and they aren’t just going to be girly makeup stuff (though there will be some of that)…but I thought it’d be fun to just show the things that I was really into each month. It’ll be neat to look back on down the road and see what I thought was cool back in the day.

So… my favorites in January…

Food: Tomato or red bell pepper or sweet potato bisque (any red/orange bisque, really) —
Makeup Product: Tarte Smooth Operator Tinted BB Cream —…
Lip Gloss: Philosophy Sugar Plum Frost (limited holiday edition set) —…
Lotion: Korres Body Butter —…
Clothing Item: Apparently these were specially designed and Charlie knows someone who works at the company and they hooked it up…SORRY!
Shoes: Mossimo Viveca Blingy in Red —…
Video Game: Minecraft —
TV Show: The Walking Dead —…
Song: “Kyoto” by Skrillex feat. Sirah —…
Dance Move: Salsa step

What were your favorites in Jan? Or right now? Any of these things?



This weekend we decided to have a Would You Rather Off. Charlie and I each came up with (or found online) 10 would you rather questions and asked each other right there on camera without seeing the other person’s questions beforehand. And yes, I played with my hair a lot in this video too. Can’t help it.

What are some of the best Would You Rather questions you’ve come up with or been asked? WE WANNA KNOW.
