Topic Tuesday: Shopping haul videos
If you're ever on YouTube, I'm sure you've seen hundreds and hundreds of shopping "haul" videos on there. What are "haul" videos, you ask? They are basically people making a video of all the purchases of their recent shopping trips. My cousin and I were having a discussion about this sudden YouTube phenomenon. She seems to think that haul videos are so annoying, and why anyone would sit there and watch ten minutes or more of some girl showing off her purchases from the mall is beyond her. I myself enjoy haul videos (some of them). In fact, a short while ago, I was thinking about doing my "weekend finds" posts in the form of videos instead of just outlining every detail in a post, but I scrapped that idea because I hate the sound of my voice (lol). I see nothing wrong with them. I don't know, I like to see what others have bought and what great deals they've scored. Some people also give ideas as to how they would incorporate their items into their wardrobes, and I think that's pretty cool. What do you think of haul videos? Do you think they're a complete waste of time and you could care less about what these people have bought? Have you ever made a haul video? Discuss.
In case you still don't know what haul videos are, here are a couple that I've found from a couple of my favorite bloggers, Dulce Candy and Bargain Princess.
