The long awaited vlog starring Elycia and I! - The Dainty Squid

The long awaited vlog starring Elycia and I!

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

A few weekends ago when Elycia and I had our big blog weekend (see our thrifting video, outfit post, behind the scenes of our outfit post and our nail tutorial.) we filmed a funny little vlog. I've been getting asked to make a vlog for quite sometime so I'm pretty nervous to share this. You guys finally get to hear my voice and watch me talk. Eeek!

Elycia and I answered just a few of the many questions you asked us right before she came out for the weekend. Don't mind our sarcasm, we're just big goofballs! ;)
I'm not even gonna lie, my favorite part is the last 35 seconds - the outtakes! They are so so so funny to me.

Links mentioned in the vlog:
My camera - Canon 60D
My lens of choice - 35mm f/2 (you should watch the price on that before purchasing, it fluctuates A LOT)
Elycia's camera - Nikon D7000
Elycia's lens -  50mm f/1.4
hair dye information
colorful cupcake tutorial 

Hope you're having a great day!
xoxo

  4. It's funny because you guys kind of remind me of me and my best friend! We're both really sarcastic and have to remind people not to take us seriously haha.
    Also Kaylah, your accent is adorable. I'm from Florida, so everyone else in the country has a cute accent to me.

    1. That's so weird, I don't think I have an accent in the video at all (well except for the fake one in the beginning).

      Delete
    2. you totally have an accent. I, on the other hand, do not. ;)

      Delete
    3. You lie, Elycia! Next time we'll have to make out accent comparing video so people can hear how funny you says "boooooogar" Hahaha!

      Delete
    4. Yes! Accent video. If I say boooooogar you have to say map!

      Delete
    5. "Mayyyap" Haha, like that? Shoot, now I'm repeating it so it just sounds ridiculous!

  6. You guys are so precious! Thanks for sharing. I love both of your blogs and this was just fantastic.

  7. This was lovely! I was hoping you'd post a vlog soon. Somehow bloggers are always completely different from what I imagine from the pictures, you were too. And I never would've guessed the two of you would make so many sacrastic jokes together, it was awesome:D

    And I agree with Paula C. above, it felt so very familiar to me too.

    Hope you had a great Valentine's Day!

    ReplyDelete
  8. This video had me in hysterics! The jam/jelly argument especially. Also, the kids question, hahahaha. Can I please just be friend with both of you now?

    ReplyDelete
  9. aaaa this so wonderful :) you too are very cute and funny and you look like you know each other for ages, that's great, thanx for posting this. outtakes rules *.*

  10. Haha, I actually did approach someone in a supermarket once because I liked how she looked. I was so nervous and when I finally talked to her I found out she was moving to a different country in 2 days.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Haha you both have such a great sense of humour, this had my in stitches :)! I think you both have an accent - but then I'm from the UK so I'm sure I will have an accent to both of you as well. Ps - I say peanut butter and jam like Elycia, but that may be because I am from the UK and jelly is something different, but I've never tried the sandwiches as I'm not too keen on jam! xx

    ReplyDelete
  12. HILARIOUS! this totally reminded me of anchorman for some reason. :-P

    ReplyDelete
  13. Always knew you guys were secretly miserable ;)
    Funniest vlog I've seen :) Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  14. You guys! I love, love, loved this! You are both so cute and funny. And you made me laugh out loud!

  15. It's totally peanut butter and jam! Although we don't really eat that in England, it's the strangest thing to get my head around. Peanut butter and jam in a sandwich together?! Maybe one day I'll try it, but right now it just confuses me! Haha!
    Me and my Besty are soooooo sarcastic that I'd be terrified that people would watch a video of us that people would think "what the heck!?"
    It's so weird to see you move Kaylah! You're a real person!!

    1. Hahaha, your vote doesn't count if you don't even eat peanut butter and JELLY sandwiches!

      Delete
    2. For years I totally thought that you were putting jelly in your sandwiches. (I think you call it jello??) and it seemed like the GROSSEST idea ever! Peanut butter with wobbly jelly in it? I think I need to just man up and try it, I haven't eaten peanut butter since I was about 11!

      Delete
    3. Two against one, I think we win!

      Delete
    4. Hahaha, Leona, I can see why! A peanut butter and jello sandwich would be SO gross!!

      Delete
  16. First off... finally. Yay, you're real!
    And you move around so much! (im assuming you were just that excited) Yes you do have an accent, which is weird to me I didn't expect you to have one. But it's a cute one.
    Can't wait for the next vlog. :]

    oh it would be awesome if you guys made a vlog of you guys mushroom hunting, maybe?

  17. OMG ... it was soooo funny. I couldn´t understand all ... but enough. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  20. hi-larious!!! thanks, made my morning :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh gosh, I can't believe how much you remind me of a friend I had in school. You sound EXACTLY like her....totally nuts. You talk and move (that sounds weird doesn't it?) totally different then what I would have expected. Absolutely love it.......

    And yes...it is TOTALLY Peanut Butter and JELLY!!! ^^
    and I don't think you have an accent either.....Elycia on the other hand....I love the way she says about ^^

    ReplyDelete
  22. So cute! I can't wait until the next one!

    1. I AM really quiet and shy - around people I don't know. It takes a lot of time around someone for me to be like in the video with someone.

  31. Funny video XDDD you remind me and my friends!!
    have fun and keep going with your blogs

    ReplyDelete
  32. "Peanut butter and jam?"
    "What?"
    "Peanut butter and jelly!!!"
    I cannot stop laughing at that... Kaylah, your reaction is priceless!

    ReplyDelete
  33. lol! I have to say all the comments are pretty funny too, yes it's Peanut Butter & Jelly....unless you specifically use jam. And you both have an accent to me....though I already know how you sound when you talk...kind of? You didn't talk much at my wedding, but we have a lot of pretty pictures of you :) and wow...you even got proposed to today! hahaha! I watched your video at work and probably sounded like a crazy person trying to laugh quietly in my cubicle! I hope you guys do another one...

  43. This was amazing and made my morning. I want this accent vlog to be as real as Kayla. I love it when aborable Canadians and Americans combine forces, it's like magic.

    ReplyDelete
  44. omg, you girls are amazing! I´ve had so much fun watching this vlog, even though I was a bit suprised over your voice at first (it was not like I imagined it to be but I guess thats just normal ;D).
    Have a nice day!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Haha I loved this video so much! You guys are so cute and silly together! You kinda remind me of me and my best friend.

    You should do more vlogs together, normally I don't really like vlogs but you guys are awesome! And it was nice to see to hear and see you, I'm always wondering how people will sound and what kind of accent they will have.

    Oh and btw, peanutbutter and jelly/jam/whatever is delecious! How can you not love it? Here in the Netherlands we have 'hagelslag' and I love to eat sandwiches with peanutbutter and hagelslag too. (It's like chocolate sprinkles for a sandwich)

    xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  46. This is amazing! I was watching this in my university's library, and I’m pretty sure I am officially enemy #1 or “that crazy girl”(I am alone) because I was laughing so hard at my computer screen! Those outtakes were the best! Not gonna lie, I was wondering what that sound was right before the end of the “serious” part of video...but the outtakes answered it for me “DID YOU FOOAARRRT!? Well I hope that is what you asked in your outtakes anyways..

    ReplyDelete
  47. I commented over on Elycia's blog - so be sure to check that out (it was all good hehe!)

    I'm surprised Elycia think's it's Jam - I thought that was just a British thing? Anyway as a Brit - I vote Jam!!!! (Although also as a Brit the idea of having Peanut Butter and Jam in a sandwich is just wrong! :p)

    Thanks for a great video!

  83. Oh my I enjoyed that sooooo much! Ha ha ha! I loved hearing you two together, your jokes are so much like mine! I laughed and giggled like I was there with ya. It is nice to hear your voice, isn't it funny how we can read blogs and wonder truly how a persons voice sounds even though you know there inner most thoughts. Strange universe. I totally have to vlog again...last time I vlogged I think it was for a giveaway and I was thirty pounds heavier with no make up on...needless to say....I sound the same. :) Hearts, Janna Lynn

  105. I didn't hear an accent from either of you. I'm about to watch the video again and see how I missed them. I'm from Nevada.

    Jam is like smooth jelly when jelly has more goobers in it? That's what I always thought, anyways.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Jelly is from fruit juice and jam is made from the fruit itself. So jam is usually the lumpier of the two since it has seeds and things in it. BUT, regardless, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is just that even if it's made from jam because peanut butter and jam just sounds wrong! :P
