This week I created my first Instagram TV video on how to wear a kimono jacket! (Click here for more How To Wear posts) It was actually really good fun to do and now I have got over the learning curve of a new way to edit videos it’s something I will definitely be doing more of. Rather than the longer videos I am creating for my YouTube channel, these can be filmed in a few minutes from my phone. I am intending to do quick tips and how to wear videos, so if you aren’t already on Instagram it’s another reason for you to join and follow me 🙂
