  • Hello everybody! Today I am going to be doing a Q&A

  • because you guys love them

  • I love filming them, and I think

  • that makes for a great all round video.

  • Words. Use them.

  • I went to Twitter

  • and I asked you guys to ask me

  • lots of questions using the hashtag ask Zoella,

  • as I always do,

  • and you gave me some lovely questions

  • so I'm gonna go through and answer them for you.

  • I have a twitchy eye.

  • Apologies

  • for the twitchy eye.

  • 'Will you ever grow your hair long again?

  • Love you!' Love you, too!

  • I don't know your name.

  • Every time I watch back old vlogs

  • I'm like, uhh, I hate my long hair

  • Like, I haven't really seen many pictures of me with long hair

  • where I've actually thought it looked nice.

  • Isn't that weird?

  • Because I've had it for so long

  • and really liked it.

  • Yeah, when I look back at it now

  • I'm like, uhh, I just don't, it doesn't look good,

  • you know.

  • So no, I'm not planning on growing it.

  • I think if I ever want a day with long hair

  • or I fancy having long hair for a bit

  • I think extensions work wonders because

  • they're so thick and lovely.

  • It doesn't have that same effect as actual natural hair

  • that gets a bit thin and straggly at the bottom

  • which is for sure what mine looked like.

  • So I think if I ever got bored of short hair

  • I can just put extensions in

  • and I think that would probably look better than my hair ever did.

  • But no, I don't miss my long hair

  • so I'm not planning on growing it anytime soon.

  • 'Scroll down your camera roll 3 times

  • and click on a random picture, then explain the picture.'

  • Okay, scroll down 3 times.

  • Do you mean scroll up?

  • Oh, scroll down but the pictures go up, got it.

  • 1, 2, 3...

  • picture!

  • I'm tapping and nothing's happening.

  • Oh, it's just a selfie, that's boring.

  • I'll do another one.

  • Okay, this is a photo, I will insert it here.

  • This photo is from the other night

  • when I was at Poppy and Sean's house

  • with Alfie and we were having like a film night

  • and we got a take-away.

  • And Alfie and Poppy fell asleep on me.

  • And Sean took this photo of me underneath them

  • loving life,

  • not being able to move.

  • 'Do you have any tips on how to

  • get more confident in situations where you have to be social with strangers?'

  • See, sometimes I'm good at this and sometimes I'm bad at this.

  • It completely depends on how I feel confidence-wise.

  • If I'm feeling particularly confident that day

  • I don't find it as difficult.

  • If I have a low self-esteem

  • or I'm feeling quite insecure that day

  • I shrivel up inside myself,

  • keep my head down

  • and I don't want to speak to anyone

  • and I find everything awkward and uncomfortable.

  • So I think my first point would be:

  • if it's at a party or is at a meeting or is at an interview,

  • or it's a place that you haven't been before

  • or it's like, you know, an event situation,

  • I would say, like really pumping yourself,

  • take a bit longer picking out your outfit, like,

  • feel good in yourself.

  • I'm a well-put-together person,

  • I can do this.

  • I always say, like, makeup is amazing

  • because it just gives people that little bit more confidence

  • that they may not have had before.

  • And I feel like this kind of works in the same way.

  • It just boosts your confidence a little bit.

  • So I think: spend a little bit longer on you

  • and do the things that you know will make you feel better by yourself

  • and make you feel more confident.

  • I think that will make everything just a little bit easier

  • because, *phone notification sound* oops, because you will

  • kind of own a room a little bit more.

  • Another thing that I can sometimes find quite difficult

  • when meeting new people or being in a room with lots of new people in it

  • and a lot of the time when I'm in that situation

  • a lot of people want to actually speak to me,

  • that sounds really big headed but I just mean it in a way that, like,

  • if it's at an event or something

  • people that I work with or they want to introduce me to people

  • a lot of the time I know people are gonna want to speak to me.

  • So I have had to kind of put these things into practise.

  • And I think I have this thing where I start to feel uncomfortable

  • when I start to, like, picture me having the conversation with somebody

  • from like an outsider, it's like I'm not really there, it's like I'm watching it happen

  • and it just feels awkward.

  • So I think being engaged in a conversation.

  • Don't necessarily worry about the fact that this is a new person.

  • Don't worry about the judgement or what would they think of me

  • or if I'm sure I said the right things.

  • I think it's good to maybe have a couple of questions that you'd like to ask people

  • or find out their interests.

  • Just be a bit more involved in the conversation

  • because a lot of the time if you're kind of holding back

  • and it's very '- how are you? - oh, great, yeah!'

  • and you're kind of already thinking about how to find your friend

  • because it's more comfortable.

  • You're never gonna enjoy that conversation.

  • You really need to think of a couple of questions

  • that you would find really interesting to find out about a new person.

  • Getting to know new people is a lovely thing to do

  • and I think the more you worry about it,

  • the more like a bad connotation it has

  • and I think trying to make the positive out of meeting new people

  • is always the best way.

  • Another thing I also think is quite good

  • is: if you take somebody that you feel comfortable with with you

  • and talk as a three to start with.

  • As long as you challenge yourself a little bit

  • and make sure you're asking questions too and you're not leaving it up to your friend.

  • And I think that way is kind of a win-win for everyone

  • because the new person is also meeting your friend, your friend is also meeting a new person

  • and three of you are getting involved in a coversation and when you feel more comfortable with that

  • you can then do that on your own.

  • 'Will you ever do a video on why you don't drink alcohol and has it ever caused you a problem?

  • Or could you say now?' crying laughing face.

  • I'll say now, I don't really mind.

  • I don't really have a reason why I don't drink alcohol. I just don't.

  • I've never really been into it, I don't really like the taste of any.

  • It kind of weirds me out that something you drink can change your behaviour and

  • a lot of the control you have over yourself

  • and I think somewhere inside of me that's a really terrifying thing.

  • And it also is quite terrifying for me to watch that happen to other people.

  • I'm normally the sober one who makes sure everyone gets home okay and

  • I don't know, I think for a while it was kind of intertwined with my anxiety so

  • I kind of just haven't really ever done it.

  • I'm not opposed to a cocktail, I'm not like super anti-alcohol.

  • I just don't really drink.

  • I much prefer a mocktail, to be honest.

  • 'Who's the last person you texted and what does the text say?'

  • The last text I send was to my friend J

  • and I said 'yes, of course' and then a little this face and a heart

  • and I put 'sorry, I thought I'd replied to you, haha, can't wait to see you'

  • I'm so bad at replying to people, literally.

  • He sent me a text today and I was like, oh my god I thought I'd replied to his previous text.

  • Turns out - I hadn't.

  • I'm terrible with communication, I just can't do it.

  • Call me up, actually no, I'm really bad at answering my phone.

  • I also pretty much at the same time as that texted Mark a picture of my legs

  • which I had fake tanned and I put 'oops' crying laughing face because they looked really orange.

  • It's a good job you can't see my legs right now!

  • 'If you could speak any other language what would it be?'

  • I feel like I may have answered this already.

  • Or maybe not. I can't remember but I think it would either be French,

  • because I just feel like it's such a beautiful language and it sounds really beautiful

  • and I've also got a little bit of knowledge of French because I've done it in school and stuff,

  • or Italian because, again, it just sounds amazing.

  • When people speak Italian, or any language, to be honest, it just sounds so good

  • and I actually really hate myself a little bit for stopping my French lessons

  • because I really enjoyed them and now if I went to France

  • I feel like I would be able to understand a small fraction of what someone was saying to me

  • I'd probably be able to communicate back

  • and I for sure would be able to fully reply which is so frustrating and sad

  • because I did it from like the age of 9 to the age of 16

  • and I don't know where any of that knowledge is gone, it's just gone.

  • Although it is never too late to learn a language.

  • I like this one: 'what is your least favourite thing in your house?'

  • In terms of rooms, the kitchen is probably my least favourite room

  • because I feel like it has so many design floors.

  • I'm getting way too into this, I don't know.

  • Hmm, the least favourite thing in my house...

  • I don't know, I kind of love most of my house.

  • I guess...

  • The fact that it has no storage and that every single small storage room was turned into a toilet before we moved in

  • Possibly, I don't really know.

  • There's no items in the house that I don't particularly like because I picked them all.

  • 'Do you ever think that Youtube was a bad idea?'

  • No, I never think it was a bad idea.

  • It's enabled me to do so much, it's given me so many amazing opportunities,

  • it's led me to have an amazing audience, amazing viewers and supporters and readers

  • and I've never thought it was a bad idea at all. Never.

  • Even though there have for sure been some things that I found pretty difficult

  • and I've never thought I would get to this point in a million years.

  • I've never considered the fact that I probably shouldn't have done it ever.

  • 'Zombies have barged into your room, the thing on your left is your weapon. What is it?'

  • *dog barking*

  • Wow . A plant.

  • Do you think that would go down well?

  • Excuse me, Nala. Stop barking.

  • Yeah, make eye contact - no!

  • She doesn't listen to me. She only listens to Alfie.

  • When I tell her off, she's like, pff okay.

  • 'Can you call Mark and pretend that you accidentally lost Nala and you're afraid to tell Alfie?'

  • He's not, I mean I can try but he's for sure not gonna believe me at all.

  • Mark: Hello.

  • Zoe: Hello!

  • Uhm, slight issue.

  • Can you talk or are you busy?

  • Uhmmm, not really.

  • Nala's like gone.

  • She ran out the door.

  • I know, I don't know what to do, like, I don't know.

  • We've been looking for her, we waited for her to come back, like... what am I gonna tell him?

  • JOKING! That's just a prank! *laughs*

  • Do you not think I would be like crying my eyes out if I lost Nala?

  • Oh, bless you, love.

  • Okay, alright!

  • Love you, bye!

  • But no, seriously, if Nala actually did do that I would be sobbing,

  • I would be an absolute mess if she ran out the door because that is my biggest fear

  • having a dog is that she is gonna run out into the route.

  • Right. That is enough of that.

  • I hope you guys have enjoyed this Q&A, give it a thumbs up if you did

  • and if you enjoyed it and if you're having a great week or great weekend.

  • I love you very much and I willsee you again very soon, bye!
