Coffee With Joy! – Starting my own Youtube Channel?

Hello my lovely pumpkins and happy monday!

I haven’t done a “Coffee With Joy” post in a long time, since September actually. If you are new and you don’t know what this series is about well, in this series, I basically share with you a little bit more about my life, my thoughts, feelings and what’s been going on with me in a “If we were having coffee,” form.

I love these kinds of posts and I know that a lot of you do as well so without further ado, let’s get into it!

Don’t forget to check out my previous Coffee with joy and my previous post: Movies I Watched In December – From Worst To Best

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am currently writing this post in the plane, on my way to Montréal. I stayed in Lebanon for the holidays and to be honest, it was so overwhelming, I didn’t have the time to do many things with the festivities and all but I did go clubbing a lot and hosted an awesome house party!


If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I finally got my new phone, do you know what that means? That means I have no more excuses but to start my youtube channel. It is very scary though and I don’t know why I keep postponing it. In fact, I wanted to do my first video when I leave Lebanon but I didn’t get to film anything at the airport but it’s fine, I have other ideas planned for a first video. But just by curiosity, what are you guys interested to watch? I mean do makeup tutorials still a thing? Do you love Vlogs?

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I passed all of  my courses, I am very happy with my results! I hope this semester goes well too but I also hope I’ll get to go out more, there are so many things I want to do in Montréal.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I really want to experiment more in makeup, I have a few makeup ideas [check below], what do you think? which one are you interested to see in a blogpost or video tutorial on Instagram!


If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am so happy with my life right now, I mean 2018 has been an amazing year. I shared with you on Instagram the highlights of this year but let me quickly mention them here again:

  • I got to travel with my lovely big sister in the French Alps
  • I was invited to a NYX event and to Jamaloukicon [beauty event in Lebanon]
  • I got a Persian cat
  • I was invited to a fashion show, how awesome!
  • I worked in a feature film and the shooting was one of the best experiences I’ve had
  • I went to a music festival with my two Green Day bestfriends [we met thanks to Green Day]
  • I moved to Montreal, like wtf, that was a MAJOR change
  • Got contacted by many brands and worked on my first sponsored post

I am so grateful for all of the things that has happened to me, I couldn’t be happier!


If we were having coffee, I would tell you about my 2019 resolutions which are to work with more brands [same as 2018], reach more views every month, experiment more with makeup to expand my skills [try abstract makeup], make myself good friends in Montreal, go to a concert, either Muse or Mumford And Sons, work [maybe in Sephora, I hope], travel to New York, see my bestfriend in Boston [cause I miss her so damn much], collaborate with another blogger [I love collaborations], finally start my youtube channel and reach 300 subscribers on Youtube  [I don’t know how easy it is to get followers but I think 300 is decent :p], reach 3,000 followers on Instagram [please help me achieve that goal!]

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that my house tour is coming very soon [this month for sure or in February], decorations are 98% done!

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed knowing more about my life and if you did, don’t forget to give it a ‘like’ and to follow my blog [you can do that by email].

    Suggestion. I think you should do a bit of both. Make-up tutorial and movie reviews. You’d have a balance of both. I’ve watched YouTube vlogers share their make-up/movie reviews.

    That’s just me…but its really up to you.

    Happy New Year, Joy. 🙂 I am back!

        There you go. Trust me…you’ll be getting a lot of subscribers from both: movie reviewers and make-up artist. 🙂
