New Vlog Series - Coffee With Ciara

Hi everyone!
Yes, I know I am a bad blogger :( I am just finding it so hard to connect with my readers through writing. I'm not a natural writer, I know that but I feel like I am not getting my real, true voice across to others. So I decided to start up a new vlog series called Coffee With Ciara and the idea of it is to answer random questions about myself in the hope that you will all get to know me better. I want it to feel like we are having a coffee and a chat together, just like friends would normally do. I will upload a new video every Thursday on my Youtube channel.

As this week is the first week, I just Googled a list of random questions ( I think I found "questions to ask on a first date lol) and I used to generate a question for me to answer. I am hoping that by next week I will have a few "real" questions from my readers/subscribers to answer and that will be a lot more fun :) If not, I will continue to use the list I have until I do get some real questions.
So I urge you to please, please ask me some questions. Anything at all! Anything you would like to know about me or about my art practice. Leave a comment below or email me at

This is my first time speaking to the camera and I have to be honest, I don't love it. You may notice that at the start of the video I come across a little stiff but I do loosen up as we go on and become more comfortable. I really dislike the sound of my own voice in a recording and I don't usually spend much time looking at myself in that much detail (I had to during the editing process). You start to notice all your "flaws" and subtle mannerisms that you never even noticed that you do.. but, I will get used to it. I think it will be a good thing to get used to it because at the end of the day, no matter what I hear or imagine about myself in my head, what other people see (physically speaking) is what we really are, wouldn't you agree? So, it is a good way to start loving the real you.

I really hope that you enjoy this series and that it gets some interest. I can't express how much I want it to feel more like a chat among friends as opposed to me just talking about myself so the best way for that to come to fruition, I think, is if I receive some real life questions.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
