I’m a 19 year old girl who lives on the south coast of the UK who loves to create. I first started my blog on Christmas Eve in 2014 in a hotel room in Thailand as I was so bored and wanted something to do, so I thought starting a blog would be something interesting and maybe even fun to do! Now I (try to) post once a week about beauty/fashion/lifestyle/films. I really enjoy writing and
In the February of 2015 I also started my YouTube Channel also named Tea Time With Ciara where I make weekly vlogs and I also make beauty/fashion/lifestyle videos as well.
You can also get in contact with me on social media by using the hashtag #TeaTimeWithCiara
I started my blog on Christmas Eve 2014 and I started uploading videos to my YouTube Channel in February 2015 and have been doing it ever since!
I remember sitting with my best friend at the time in one of our free periods in November 2014. We were talking and I mentioned how I have always wanted to start a YouTube Channel, but never felt confident enough to do so! We then started talking about names for my channel and how I didn’t want it to be boring and just be my name. We joked round and started saying ‘Ciella and Thatcher Ciara’, you know trying to be funny and all. Then I looked down at my hands and saw that I was holding a cup of tea and I suggested ‘Tea Time With Ciara’.
Do you do the photography yourself?
Yes, I have a passion for photography! I currently take A Level Photography so I like to practise myself. However, there are the odd occasions where I use other images and I alway state when these images are not taken by me!
My first camera that I used for both blogging and my YouTube channel was the Canon 1200D with the standard kit lens. As I have progressed with my photography I upgraded my camera in December of 2016 to the Canon 700D which I predominantly use my Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 lens. To make my vlogs I use my Canon S120 and I sometimes may use my iPhone 6 camera and my GoPro.
I use iMovie, however one day I would love to upgrade to Final Cut Pro. (Maybe when I’m rich and famous 😂)
How do you edit your pictures?
I use a mixture of PicMonkey.com (mainly for thumbnails) as I love the choice of text there is. I don’t pay for it as I also have Photoshop which I use to edit my photos.
What A Levels do you study?
A Level Film Studies, Media Studies, Photography & ICT
Favourite Disney Film?
Beauty & the Beast easily! Definitely the cartoon version though! I love the live action but I have such an attachment to the cartoon one that I just love it! However it is closely followed by the Lion King!
I’m off to Disneyland Paris on the 23rd July – 25th July 2017! (I am beyond excited!)
I’m also in Disneyland Paris for 2 days during October half term.
I’m off to Disneyland California at the end of February which I currently can not contain my excitement for! I mean seriously 😄
When is your birthday?
