New: The Saturday Share Link Up (and New YouTube Videos!)

Saturday Share Link Up | Not Dressed As Lamb

It’s time to announce something new here at Not Dressed As Lamb,

and that something is an idea I’ve had (and been researching) for a little while now. As many of you know I host a Monday link up called #iwillwearwhatilike, where everyone can join in by adding their outfits, old or new, from Instagram or their blogs. However I always stress that it’s for outfits only (the clue’s in the name!), but I still get people linking up their travel posts and beauty posts and anything-else-that’s-not-an-outfit post.

So here we are: A brand new weekend linky that’s for everyone to share anything and everything, old or new, from your Instagram or blogs, no limit to how many you link up… it shall henceforth be known as the “Saturday Share” link up with the hashtag #SaturdayShareLinkUp!

(Fridays 9pm UK time, 4pm EDT, 1pm PDT; Saturdays 7am AEDT)

Each week I’ll also share my favourite blog post, Instagram post or Facebook post – or maybe a new YouTube video perhaps, as I’m doing today – and not just one but two…! My YouTube videos are like the number 19 bus: You wait all day for one (and in the case of my YouTube career, over a year), and then you get not one but TWO turn up at the same time 😉

They’re both make up videos I made for Avon – it has Avon’s intro and outro and their music, but the filming/editing was all mine. For their “Bye to #MorningFace” series I first made one for a”Perfect Smooth Base”:

Please be kind if you leave a comment… Having my “morning face” on the internet wasn’t the most appealing of prospects!

And the second was “Lipstick that lasts”:

I’ve had so many technical problems with my YouTube filming over the past year, hence the whole venture stalled before it even really began. My channel trailer was only made because I just couldn’t work out what I was doing (you’ll see how I botched something together from all the outtakes if you watch it on my channel here) – being forced to do it properly for Avon has hopefully put me in good stead to get something filmed regularly from now on. So do please subscribe in order to be kept informed when my new videos and vlogs get uploaded!

So all that’s left to say is… LET’S GET THIS [LINK UP] PARTY STARTED!!

Thank you for joining the #SaturdayShareLinkUp! Designed to allow you to share anything you like on ANY topic, it goes live every Friday at 9pm UK time and will stay open for a week. You can share blog posts or Instagram posts, old posts or new posts, and link up as many as you like.


But PLEASE be kind and leave a link somewhere on your post, and share your post using the hashtag #SaturdayShareLinkUp – if you tweet your link with the hashtag I’ll even retweet it to my followers for you 🙂

Here’s a hot tip for linking up:

Use clear, bright images (crop in close if necessary) and add a relevant, descriptive title (you’ve got 75 characters to use). These sorts of thumbnails and text always get the most clicks, so don’t waste the opportunity to increase traffic and engagement on your best work!

P.S. Why Friday night? Because hopefully it catches most of my readers in their different time zones at a time they’re all up!

Disclosure: I collaborated with Avon to create these videos (click here for my full disclosure); however, I was not required as part of the collab to share them on my blog, only my social channels. I always aim for total transparency where sponsorship is concerned, hence this explanation…! As always all content is original and opinions are my own and 100% honest.

    The purpose behind this is it makes the video lighter and hence simpler to stream on the web. Yet, the excellence of this is the recordings on YouTube can be tore and thusly can be changed over into Zune recordings that can be utilized on the player. free youtube video downloader,

    Such a great idea. I struggle with YouTube and finding good quality 40 plus videos to watch

      Thanks Sandra – there's definitely a gap in the market. I just hope I encourage more 40+ bloggers to make videos and tutorials! x

      Dawn Lucy that's kind of you, it's a bit tough showing your scrubbed face on the internet…! thank you x

    Firstly…Yay for the videos!!!
    You are such a pro Catherine :oD
    Second…Yay for an "anything goes" link.
    I have added some halloween links from last year (I hope that is okay???) and will hopefully get another halloween one up soon.
    How is posting everyday going?
    There seems to be a buzz around your blog…I'm feeling it :oP

      Oh wow Samantha that's totally made my Saturday night… Saying there's a buzz around my blog is SUCH a great compliment!!! And of course, you link up as many as you want! x

    • October 8, 2016 / 10:31 pm

      Oh I'm so glad, Rena – it was so hard to come up with a time to suit all actually on Saturday itself, hence it being (UK's) Friday night in the end. Thank you, glad you're in support of it x

    What a great idea for this link up – it will be fun to see all the different posts! Thanks for hosting!

  8. October 7, 2016 / 9:29 pm

    Love this! Also, as a fellow YouTuber, I did swing by your channel a while ago and thought you'd decided to leave it, so I'm excited that you're picking things up again! Congrats on the Avon collab. Your so-called #morningface looks pretty darned good to me before you do anything! x


    • October 8, 2016 / 10:29 pm

      It definitely looked that way, Kitty – I managed to sort one technical problem only to be met by another. Videos are not easy!!! And thank you, you're a sweetheart x

  9. October 7, 2016 / 8:30 pm

    Your videos are SUPER Catherine! I'd be scowling and swearing at a morning video, and you look radiant. You're really a pro at this. Thank you for hosting.. off to explore some links! xx
