We’re Moving VLOG

2016 was quite a year for our little family.  We experienced a few ups and our fair share of downs. Matt took on my favorite role yet, as Wyatt in Timeless, which had us moving from LA to Vancouver.  Watch our VLOG of our biggest move yet…

[arve url=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/IwFf_Q2A204″ mode=”normal” align=”center” title=”We’re Moving VLOG” description=”moving from Los Angeles to Vancouver VLOG featuring Matt Lanter and Angela Lanter” autoplay=”no”/]

It’s so strange to think how different our lives look now compared to this time last year.  So much can change in 365 days.  Change is often uncomfortable, but it is necessary.

I noticed a lot of questions on YouTube about Soka during our trip up the West Coast.  Because our car was totally packed out and we spent very long hours on the road, we decided to leave Soka at home in LA with our friend, Crystal (Soka knows her as Aunt CeCe).  We were only in Vancouver for about 5 days before flying down to San Diego for Comic Con.  I drove up to LA after Comic Con and stayed home for the week, packing up the rest of what we needed while moving…  And doing a ton of purging.  After that, Miss Soka and I flew up to Vancouver to officially move into our new home.

Moving tends to always set the urge for a good purge (I should trademark that rhyme haha!)  If you missed this post all about purging your home, check it out now.  The beginning of a new year is also a great time to start fresh, hint hint!

I’m currently back home in LA for a couple of weeks and the purging is back in full force.  I’ve been working my way through our house, cabinet by cabinet.  Oh girl, let me tell you…  It feels GOOD to be in an organized house.  I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time focusing on anything in a messy, cluttered room.

My plan for this week is to majorly purge my closet.  I’m planning to try on every pair of jeans and pants I own.  I want to start off 2017 with a closet full of only the things I really love.  I’m considering opening my Poshmark store up again…  I’ll keep y’all posted if I do.

Now that the holidays are over, I’m excited to pick things back up here at HG.  I’m ready to get back into my Girl Talk Tuesday series and start creating fun new videos for 2017.  I’d love to hear from you about what you’d like to see more or less of in 2017 on HG.  I’d really appreciate if you could take a few moments to leave a comment below to let me know what would make you happiest to see from me this year.  Is it more lifestyle blog posts?  Maybe more outfit posts?  Or would you prefer more YouTube tutorials?  Whatever it is, please let me know below.  Scouts honor, I read each and every comment I receive!

I love my Gorgeous Girls so much.  I am so thankful for each and every one of you in my virtual family.  I’ll never get over the fact that you care enough to read what I write or watch what I post.  There’s nothing I’d love more than to have some real face-to-face girl talk over coffee with each one of you.

I’m so happy that HG has become a hub where I can connect with each of you.  I love that I can chat with each one of you beautiful babes about whatever topic is at hand (how fun was our Gilmore Girls post?)!  So here’s to a new year together.  A new year filled with happiness, love and laughter with my Gorgeous Girls.

    Starting uni this year and boy does it feel scary! So to be reminded that change happens and to everyone was a strange comfort… Tutorials and Tips/Tricks videos are always my favourite so it would be cool to see some in 2017

    I know so much change, though I truly believe everything happens for a reason and we end up right where are supposed to be , everything comes to you in the right time. I love the Lifestyle posts Angela and Girl talk Tuesday. I also love the makeup You Tube tutorials , maybe some more hair styles ones and also am looking for a good BB cream so reccomendations would be amazing. o

    I would love to see move makeup and hair tutorials! I also love organizing the home (I’m not so good at purging though), so it would maybe be cool to see a video or detailed blog about you organizing a closet or pantry or something! ?

  4. / 7:12 AM

    Loved the VLOG!! A trip up the pacific coast is on mine and my husband’s bucket list. I would love to see more lifestyle posts and video tutorials. More VLOGs would be great too! Your IG pics of Vancouver are beautiful and I’d love to see more of BC. Happy New Year!

    I would love to see more outfit posts for sure…lately I feel like that is what I have been missing the most. I do love the recipes you share and all your youtube videos…maybe a few more on different hairstyles and ways to curl/style your hair?

    Anyway love your blog, I check it everyday!

    Happy 2017

    xoxo Amanda

    LOVE THE VLOG!! We had started doing something similar and it was super short-lived, so I really would love to start that up again myself! The drone is awesome. I gave my husband major crap for wanting a drone……but now I see the possibilities.

    I am a new-ish subscriber but have loved reading back through your posts. Girl Talk Tuesday is my fave, I have to say it is SO REFRESHING to see some genuine sharing out there! And it makes me feel like I ‘know’ you, even though I don’t “know you” LOL. I love the lifestyle posts and the home posts and I would just be tickled to see more of that because I’m always on the lookout for new ideas around my own house, whether it is decor, organization, etc. 🙂

  7. / 12:15 PM

    That was fun, I love watching people’s adventures! I hope you got to see more of Washington though, besides the freeway 😉

    Happy New Year Angela! I loved this vlog; you should definitely do more of those in 2017. What you said at the end really stayed with me. I’m moving soon and will be living further away from my mum (and the family dog!) than I have before. It makes me so nervous but what you said about home being where the heart is was exactly what I needed to hear. I’m glad you have enjoyed Vancouver so far and hope you have an amazing next 360 days of 2017

    I miss your youtube videos so I’d love to see more videos in 2017. Tutorials, vlogs (that editing!), favourites. Anything! Also your food snaps always look so good so more recipes maybe?

    BTW finally catching up on my pvred episodes of Timeless. Hooked! As history buff it is so up my alley.

    Angela! Congrats for this amazing video! I definitely beg you to do more video blogs like this, of your daily life! (A day on your daily life, a home tour, how you organize your closet, your favorite recipies….) but definitely, with video blogs! It’s more interesting and refreshing!!! Loving to see the evolution of hello gorgeus… congrats from an OGG!!! Lots of love

    I just came across your blog a few weeks ago and I am SO inspired! It’s nice to see a fellow believer out there 🙂 Also, I am a SoCal native living in Seattle so I totally loved and related to your VLOG! ❤ I’d love to see more of the daily life posts – I am a working mom of a 7 year old and need all the sparkle that I can get!

    Loved this video! More travel/ adventure videos would be fun!
    I think Matt needs to make a “how to fly a drone video” ha
    Would love to see how you edit some of your beautiful videos too!

    Love this vlog! What an amazing job. In 2017 I would love to see more things like this, or everyday moments captured by vlogs. And 100% more you tube tutorials ???.

    Let me just start off by saying I love you and Matt!!! All of his shows are amazing and you are both so talented! Happy New Year!
    This year I am excited but scared to go to my senior prom and would love some ideas for hair and dresses in style! I didn’t go to prom last year because I didn’t know what to wear and I couldn’t find anything I really loved that I could afford. This year I’m using my friends navy blue dress but i want to splurge on my hair and makeup! Please please make a video or two on 2017 prom hair styles and dresses. I really look up to your opinion! Thank you so much Angela! ♡

    Happy New Year!!
    I loved your VLOG! It reminded me of the family road trip we took from our home in BC to California and back (driving along the coastline was amazing!!!)

    I am still quite new to the Hello Gorgeous family and really enjoy reading your posts and watching your videos! I love the lifestyle posts and the YouTube tutorials. I also really enjoy reading your Girl Talk Tuesday posts.

    I hope you and Matt enjoy living in BC!!

    I loved your video of your journey to Vancouver. I would like to make that same trip one day. I’m sure we won’t have those great drone videos, but just to see all those views. Good Luck purging and have a great year. Hope Matt’s Timeless is renewed for many for seasons (great show).

    Ahh! I love your blogs. I have told you before on insta, but you are definitely my favorite blogger. I get so many tips and inspiration from you! Plus you and your hubby are the CUTEST ever. 🙂 Anyways, I absolutely adored this Vlog. The scenery was breathtaking and it looks like you guys had so much fun! You should definitely do more of these in 2017. I also would LOVE if you could do more outfit posts. You have the greatest sense of style.

    much love from Texas 🙂

    P.s. I wanna come to Vancouver now!!

    Happy New Year Angela. I Love your Blog und absolutely loved the Vlog. You Look absolutely georgeous with less make up. Dont get me wrong. With make up you Look super pretty too. But i also Really like the Natural Look ? It’s always a Little Highlight for me, to see new pictures, a new Blog or video. If you could recommend a good, but not so expensive, BB Cream would be awesome. Also i would like to hear more about what you eat, are you on a diet? What do you do to keep your figure? Do you work out a lot? Lots of questions, i know ?

    I Hope you Unterstand what I mean, because my english is not that good.

    Much Love from Germany ❤

    First off, I love your blog! I love how you talk about the little, simple things in life with such positivity and curiosity! It’s such a breath of fresh air here on the internet. 🙂

    Second, I love everything you do here, from makeup tutorials to fashion, to girl talk tuesdays! (< huge one I love!) One of the first posts I saw that really resonated with me was your, "10 things successful women do." It really stuck with me and I've kept reading ever since!

    I personally love your lifestyle posts, they are so encouraging and I truly appreciate that. I'd enjoy reading more of those, it reminds you of what's important! I can't wait to keep up with your Vlog too!

    Keep up your lovely work and God Bless!

    Two things:
    1. Is the Hello Gorgeous mailing address still going to be in Studio City or is that changing?
    2. This video was the perfect video for me to have a few minutes to just relax after a long day at work. I loved all of the views, but I’m sorry you missed the crab sandwich and were rear-ended! I absolutely love Girl Talk Tuesday, too.

    Love your blog, Angela! I literally discovered Hello Gorgeous! (great name!) two days ago and have spent a ridiculous amount of time reading back and watching a few videos. Love all the different topics you cover and am very impressed with you as an individual. Thank you for sharing and putting yourself out here. To be honest, I’m interested in everything I’ve seen so far – whether it’s the tutorials, outfits, or just a look into how you do “things” in your every day life. This vlog was very entertaining and I laughed a ton at the video of your hubby doing your makeup.
    I really appreciated the list of things your Mawmaw taught you. She sounds like an incredible woman. Happy New Year~

    I loved watching the vlog! My husband was having drone envy with all the beautiful drone shots. He’s planning to get one before we head down to 30A this summer (also one of my most favorite vacation spots)! I love your lifestyle posts and your travel posts. I’m excited to try some of the spots you’ve recommended down in the 30A area! Love the Donut Hole! It’s always fun to see life updates too like this vlog and moving update post 🙂

    Hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas season and purge time. I am doing the same thing currently and it feels wonderful to get rid of all this extra stuff!

  28. / 8:41 AM

    I finally got to watch this and loved it! It was as good as I expected. You guys are so funny and so adorable together. And I am the same way as you on bridges when I’m driving….hate it!!! My hands are glued to the steering wheel! LOL

    Can’t wait to see whats your planning for us !

    Have a good day Agnela,

  30. / 12:02 AM


    I know this was posted awhile ago but I’m heading up to Vancouver, BC this week and don’t know anyone who has been there. What were your favorite places to see and eat and such? I would greatly appreciate any suggestions!

    I loved the vlog and I love when your blog notification pops up in my email!

      Hi Lexi!
      Have so much fun in Vancouver!
      If you’re a beauty fan, H MArt is so fun because they have so many cool Korean skincare products that you can’t really find may places in the US.
      As for food, we loved Greek by Anatoli, Earl’s Kitchen (their salmon is my FAVE), Tavola restaurant has the best burrata in my LIFE, Minami Sushi is amazing… Shopping on Robson is amazing too! I need to put together a Vancouver travel guide!!
