January 2017 Newsletter

Welcome to the first newsletter of 2017! The first newsletter for SereinWu.com. As mentioned in my videos at the end of 2016, this newsletter is designed to bring you exclusive content and giveaways for my subscribers. I wanted a way to get to know you better and build a close relationship with those who want to. For January, I want to share more about hubs. As hubs becomes more involved helping me with my channel, podcast, and blog, I think it’s time you get to know him. He will be writing a guest posts for the Content Creator Tips Series. As my newsletter subscriber, you get to know him first!

serein chris birthdayWho is hubs?

Hubs’ name is Chris. Bubs, Hubs, and Babe are nicknames I use for Chris.  Rarely will you hear me call him by Chris at home. 

For a long time we kept what I did on YouTube exclusively my thing. He watched from the sidelines as I found my voice and community. As my channel grows and ideas of what I’d like to do in expanding this community, I need help. Chris has started to take a more active role helping me with the business aspect of running everything.

This is where his 12 + years of being a talent agent, manager, and producer really comes in handy. It’s a bit odd reflecting on our pasts, how we ran away from it, and how it is helping us today. Life really does come full circle at times. Hubs moved to L.A. to work in entertainment at 18. We met because of work. After a decade plus working in the entertainment industry, he quite shortly after we married.

The Burn Out

If you ask him, he says he burned out.  The industry lost it’s magic for him. Working 24/7 for over 12 years can ruin it for you.  After we married, Chris realized for our relationship to evolve he had to get out. Our wedding was planned around television season. For him to take a week off during our honeymoon was an ordeal. Up until 2015, Chris had never taken a vacation. 2015 was his first year away from managing talent. 

Before 2015, we couldn’t go anywhere that he would be unreachable incase there was a situation with work. There would be times at dinner (the one hour I had with my husband) and we would be disturbed thanks to work. When Chris decided to quit, I panicked. He had never done anything else, but mainly he was REALLY REALLY GOOD at what he did. 

Creativity is key

How were we going to pay the bills?

After a lot of thought, Chris decided to go into photography. He had always loved photography and art. With Chris’ love for art and photography he was able to find a new profession he loved. of course it was not all smooth sailing. He had to learn to use a digital camera (growing up he shot on film) and teach himself photoshop, lightroom, and indesign. It helps when you love something because like YouTube for me, Chris dove head first. Today he does some of the best editing jobs I’ve seen around. 

Content Creator Tips

This is why I wanted to start the Content Creator Tips Series. It’s not just about helping those who want to start or have started a channel, blog, or social media account, but to hopefully inspire those who want to add a little creativity in their life.  Life should not be without creativity or passion. If you get to have both in your career, than you are lucky, but if not, there’s always a small way to incorporate it in your life.

    This is my first time reading your newsletter and I really enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing a little of your life (and your husband and babies:)) and other things that you’ve learned. A few years ago I used to work with someone that never wanted to share anything he would always tell me if they want to know let them go and do like I did. He acted as if sharing information of any kind would take something away from him. I always feel very grateful that anyone wants to share their knowledge/wisdom with me. And I love that you share a book, reading is one of my favorite past times and very rewarding. I’m happy for you and Chris living a wonderful life doing something you really enjoy. How kind and sweet you are to give back to your subscribers🌞🌼 Hope you are having a delightful week🤗🤗

    Wow!!! I really enjoy this glimpse into your life with hubs…he seems to be so nice and funny on the videos, now I really know that he is not only nice and funny, he is a very amazing human being…kudos to both of you. Thank you for this opportunity to learn from you the ins and the outs of the business…very few people will do it. I am grateful.🙏🙏🙏

    I enjoyed reading this newsletter. It was nice getting to know your “Hubs” better. The pictures of the fur babies are gorgeous. I love the pictures he takes of you. He captures your spirit and bubbliness.
    I hope that the Meet up went well.

    Love,

    Thanks for sharing more info on Hubs with us. He is always supportive of your work it is nice to read what brought him to his current journey. Best of luck to him and hope to continue to hear about him.

    I love your style and would love to see some videos/blogs something on handbags that are reasonably priced. You have some beautiful ones in your pics from Chanel etc however as a working mom of 2 it is hard for me to justify spending that much on a handbag. My daughter and I are going to NYC on Spring Break and I would love a pretty, durable cross body bag without breaking the bank. I would love some recommendations from you 🙂

    Thanks so much for always reaching out to your subscribers in many different ways on social media.

    I think it is so awesome that you both are able to combine your talents and interests. I look forward to learning from you both. And enjoy the personal aspect of this blog. I only wish I lived closer so that I could bring my daughter to a meet and greet. If you ever want to do one in Canada, let me know. Maybe I can help you set that up👍

    Hi Serein, I’m so excited to see your Content Creator Series. I’m definitely looking for some change in my life. Yesterday was one of those bad days for when all my negative emotions (about life and how I am unhappy with where I’m at) came rushing and hit me all at once. The worst part? I was a work, and I currently work in the food service industry so I had to just suck it up and carry on. But I’m looking for a positive outlet and I really love watching your videos. Thank you for sharing Chris with us. I’m very interested in your journey and process.

    Can’t wait to see your next blog.

    Hi Serein! I have noticed that your YouTube channel and its content had changed for the better! It’s true, it takes time to get a hold of everything, especially learning the ins and outs of this industry. I just recently followed you on instagram and the photos are really stunning. Does you husband take the photos of those as well? I always check YouTube daily as part of my “let me relax and watch/read a few stuff mainly about makeup and fitness” and I make sure to check on yours, you’re one of a few that sounds so sincere, and don’t pile a ton of makeup (at least doesn’t look like so) that’s so unrealistic. Thanks for your posts! And we’ll be here behind you supporting you and your hubby on your journey!

    • January 6, 2017 / 6:03 pm

      Hi Maggie! Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment. Yes, it takes a lot of time to get better with all this. Chris does shoot most of my photos. Sometimes he’s not around, so I’ll have to figure it out and on my own, but the good photos are done by him :-p

    It’s so nice to get to know more about your hubs, Chris. I’m so glad he is supportive of your passion and is now actively involved in being a part of your “community”. I’m sure we will see great things to come. Thanks for allowing us to get to know you behind the scenes. Looking forward to the next newsletter. ☺

    Hi Serein
    Ive missed quite alot of videos of yours for just over a month due to lack of concentration ( through depression, not your content ) on the plus side im starting to feel better and have quite a few videos to binge watch.
    As my mood lifted i thouht what to do to stay relaxed and happy…….WATCH SEREIN cant wait to get caught up. <3

    • January 6, 2017 / 6:04 pm

      i’m happy you are feeling better. Hope you continue to. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment.

  24. January 6, 2017 / 8:11 am

    Nice intro to Chris. My Hubby works insane hours too & wants to change. I even vacationed with my siblings the past 2 years when he couldn’t get away.
    I’m guessing your channel blew up after Tati had you on her channel. That’s how I found you & started following you. My favorite feature on your channel is makeup bag Monday. XO

    • January 6, 2017 / 6:06 pm

      It sticks when they work so much, when he went into photography he still worked crazy schedules, but at least it was a bit more under his control. Now we get to work together, but then we have to remember to shut off and spend time not working together. He still has his business, so he’s a bit stressed now, but hoping to be able to figure it all out this year.

  25. Heather
    January 6, 2017 / 12:17 am

    The Heir is actually an amazing book. It’s really different from the first series, but it showcases another strong female character in a different light, and it’s actually pretty rad. That’s kind of amazing that Serein recommended it.

    • January 6, 2017 / 6:07 pm

      So I’m about three hours into it and I think I really like it. I mean she’s a bit spoiled at first and I think I know where it’s going, but I like it so far.

    You guys make such a great team! It’s wonderful to see how you support each other. Sooooo happy for the Content Creator series! Couldn’t ask for a more perfect duo to learn from. I’ve been looking into starting a channel on “BookTube”, but it’s scary & overwhelming for a new creator on YouTube. You’re someone who I’ve grown to trust so your series couldn’t come at a better time 🙂 Thank you for all the work you put into what you do!

    • January 6, 2017 / 6:07 pm

      aw thank you so much for your kind words! You should definitely start your channel! I think BookTube is perfect!

    Hi Serein,

    Thank you for creating this exclusive subscriber newsletter & your genuine interest to get to know your subscriber better. I have been following your channel & social media since I watched your collab YouTube video with Tati last year when you were chosen to be the winner. She definitely chose the right person. I love your humble, simple & realistic beauty & fashion style. Unlike many others, you stay true to your self, your make up style is natural & realistic & suits to daily wear. I really love your honest genuine reviews and really detailed in-depth description. It absolutely helps in making purchase decisions although not all products that you mentioned are available in Australia. I also tend to buy drugstore products for budget & financial reasons in terms of make up. So, I usually rely on product reviews from you videos and Tati’s. Been listening to your podcasts as well.

    Great to read more about Chris here or hubs as you normally call him on your videos 😁😁😁 he definitely a really supportive husband.

    Would love to know more about you, daily make up tutorials, monthly beauty budget favourites, your hobby, etc. 😘😘😘

    • January 5, 2017 / 9:23 pm

      Hi Marta! I always see you on Twitter. Thank you so much for watching, listening, and reading! You’re such a huge supporter and I’m so happy you found the newsletter fun and interesting. Hope to continue to bring you more!

    I love this! I, myself, has been getting into photography. I have a strong passion for photography, baking, and helping others. So, my dream is to open up a bakery. But, not just any bakery– a bakery where people can also purchase my photographs. All proceeds made by selling my photographs will go towards charities and I would love to be able to bake up some sweets for the homeless!

    • January 6, 2017 / 6:11 pm

      What a great goal! You can defiently do it! I love baking, haven’t had time to do it in awhile, but the smell of fresh baked goods makes me happy.

    Loved the newsletter! You mentioned in one of your vlogs that you are trying to focus on getting yourself healthy while balancing work. In one of your newsletter can you give some pointers on the best ways to do that? Thanks again for all your hard work!

    Confort is an habit for me. I want to do a lot of things in life but I feel that time will not be enough yet, I am just resting and spending my entire day only watching videos. I feel like I only do what I have to do and no more.
    Just like you and Chris do things that enjoy, I want to do things that don’t necessarily need to do. Keep inspiring! Thanks.

    This was very insightful into your life with Hubs, which is what I call my hubby too. I think some times we do have to walk away if we no longer feel that spark in our careers. That was very brace of him.

    Hi Serein and hubs Love you guys!!! I’m not that creative but enjoy watching you to see how you guys communicate how you create content. I know that I’m not crazy for wanting a hard working, respectful, loving, caring, supportive, marriage were both parties want to live a life together it does exist. I’m not down or depressed or wanting this anymore I’ve accepted my life I just want to provide for my daughter for her to be a happy responsible young girl. Love you guys!!!!!

    So great to receive your newsletter, I literally wait for ur YouTube videos to come out, I enjoy watching u and your content, we have similar issues with skin and make up that’s why I always depend on your review before I purchased any new make up. So great that u out so much effort in your channel, I can’t imagine how much tremendous work and effort it must be to upkeep your Channel

    I love this set up and I love getting to know more about you all! I definitely like seeing what you’re reading because we have similar taste in books. I think you might do this in your monthly favorites, but I love when bloggers choose like one favorite random item that they fell in love with for the month, not necessarily a beauty item, but like random every day things like clothes, or housewares or jewelry / accessories etc.

    • January 6, 2017 / 6:01 pm

      Good Idea! I’ll try to incorporate other favorites here 🙂
