Hi there ! I just got my latest Aliexpress order and I was suuuuper excited to show off my new gear. Which would come in handy for any blogger or youtuber that’s just starting out.
1. Self-healing cutting mat (A3)
And it’s massive ! This is the first time I ordered something this big, and I must say, the seller did a good job packaging it. I took a size A3, the biggest they have. I have just received it today, and should be able to tell over usage how it reacts to a sharp blade. But I did test it already and I can say, it’s good quality. It has a bit of a smell though. I am waiting 24h before installing it on my desk.
Here’s the link to the one I got. It’s been delivered in 6 weeks to morocco.
2. Flexible GorillaPod tripod
I have been on the lookout for a GorillaPod for so long I can’t even remember when. And I have to say that this kit is a great deal. It’s robust, flexible and it has two mounts for GoPro and smartphones. Also, there’s this level thingy (the green water) that allows for a perfectly straight camera.
3. Lavalier Microphone
I’ve been thinking about making videos, but it was absolutely no question to make a cringe-worthy-bad-sound youtube video. I mean .. NO ! So I thought I’d give this mic a try, and I LOVE it ! Here’s an image of the beast (seller’s pic) :
Aaaand of course here’s an Aliexpress link. Because you deserve what’s best my lovelies ! It’s inexpensive, and I have tested it, the sound is better than decent. And the good news is that you can use it with your smartphone (which I did !).
If you are a young (and possibly new) youtuber, my advice to you is BUY IT ! It IS worth your while.
You may know of my love for anything organizing related (yet my place is a sad mess.. go figure). In this previous article, I had showed you how to simply decorate your journal using washi tape and demonstrated the use of stamps as cool looking trackers. By yours truely <3 Let’s not talk about the magnificent leuchtturm1917 that I simply could not find in Morocco.
Since then, I’ve been dreaming of having a REAL bullet journal. Until I found THIS beauty on Aliexpress. I got a dotted size A5 and boy is it delectable <3 …. the cover is hard and robust which makes it feel very expensive. Its black is super dark and the paper feels sooo nice. And with that new-book smell… I casually stuff my face in it more than I care to admit.
5. Silicone molds
Look at this cuuuuute little molds. I got them on an impulse because I’ve been fantasizing about making fancy cakes but apparantly I like eating them more than making them… Nah ! JK , I DO like making them, and I WILL !
And here’s a link, they are all from the same seller. They got delivered on time (less than 2 months), and free of charge.
See ya soon !
