Get Ready with Me & Christina Rossetti

I recently watched a Get Ready With Me video from Cheap Lazy Vegan where she overlayed a speech instead of music or a voiceover. I really enjoyed it and wanted to try it out myself.

The makeup I’m doing is just my everyday makeup (though I don’t actually wear makeup every day). Since I have a book blog I decided to do mine with poetry using audiobook recordings from Librivox which are in the public domain.

Here’s the video, I hope you enjoy it 🙂

The poem is Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti, one of my absolute favourite poems and I think you would enjoy it even if you don’t like (or think you don’t like) poetry. I wrote a post about it for Poetry Day in 2017 as well. If you enjoyed the poem I recommend reading Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones. You can check out more of Christina Rossetti’s work on Librivox or from a collection, Selected Poems by Christina Rossetti.

I really had so much fun creating this post and would love to do more. I will probably use shorter poems in the future though…

  1. Nice video! It was a nice touch using the reading of a poem rather than music for the background. 🙂 Loved the eyebrow waggling and funny expressions! 😛
    Your makeup and wavy hair are really pretty. I wish my curls/waves looked that nice!
