We hit 50k Subscribers!

So, we just hit 50k subscribers!

You guessed right, the excitement is palpable!

Two years ago, I started this channel from a corner of my living room. It was a dream come true.

Zero subscribers.

My first video was Summer in London and to be totally honest, I had no idea what I had just started.

Youtube was a space where viewers were in a constant search for drama and kerfuffle and gossip. And I was here making videos about my Chanel bags. Haha!

I was quickly written off. A cadre of my now former friends said I was a spoilt housewife looking for an outlet to show my family wealth.
Such bitterness.

At some point, one of them who is still in the trenches as we speak said I was Trash. We shall be talking about that in a different post.

From my first video, I soldiered on, like a Haitian typhoon. Undeterred.

And along the way it has been bittersweet. Like a properly whipped Cinquecento.

And in those two short years I have seen my name dragged in the muck on some third-rate gossip low-budget websites.

Take it a notch higher this year, upstarts.

In those two years I have won a handful of awards and graced some of the biggest papers in town.

In those two years I have learnt a great deal and gotten better at it. New stuff is coming soon. I promise.

Although I’m still far from what I dream of becoming, I have made tremendous progress in my own right.

I’m sure there are guys who began the same time I did and have clocked 100k plus subscribers.

Atta boys and girls!

We are treading different waters.

A special thanks to the growing family. From here it can only get bigger and better.

I appreciate the criticism, the bile, the hate and the nonchalance.

After all, would there be diamonds without the heat and the pressure?

100k Subscribers is that you?
