How I Film My Videos

People always ask me what equipment do I use to film my videos.  I film with several different cameras but typically alternate between the 70D and the 5D Mark III.

I usually shoot with my 5D when Wah is helping me film.  I usually start with my Canon 24-70MM lens – it’s really perfect for everything, especially portraits!

If Wah isn’t shooting the video, I usually change lenses and use my 70D if I’m shooting my own videos.

Another camera I have been using lately is my Canon EOS M5.  I often use my 10-18MM lens on this one, which is a SUPER wide lens!

Hope that’s helpful!

Trip to Asia!

I’m already back from Hong Kong but missing it already.  Feels like just yesterday when I was there. Currently in the bay spending some time with my family heading back to LA, but wanted to give you a recap on my trip!

Wah and I are completely obsessed with HK!  The weather was amazing on our trip so we spent most of our trip walking around and exploring by foot.  The night life is so lively and vibrant!  There are so many high rises with such cool architecture.  It just amazes me how HK manages to stay so clean despite the amount of traffic! Wah and spent time exploring several districts, but 上環 was by far our favorite!  This district is packed with cute boutiques. This district has so much character!

We then went to Guangzhaou, China to explore the place where my family is from!  We also spent some with Wah’s family in China as well!  As you could probably tell from my Insta, we spent most of our time trying new foods and exploring new restaurants! Can’t wait to go back!

Thanks for your guys’ support while we were spending some on vacay!!

My meet-up with e.l.f!

This past weekend I had a meet-up at the e.l.f. Cosmetics store at the Glendale Galleria in California. 456 of my viewers  came, along with one super cute bunny and three dogs.  You all showered me in gifts, including some cilantro for Miso.  I feel so lucky to have so many people that have followed me over so many years. I couldn’t do it without any one of you.

Update!  The lashes are currently sold out, but e.l.f. is ordering more! They should be up in the next few days, or next week, and we’re hoping to have a new free shipping code for you guys as well!

Reminder you can sign up to be notified when the lashes are back in stock, here!

Please tag me in your posts when you get your lashes! #elfheartsweylieimg_4907

e.l.f. Exclusive Weylie Luxe Lash Kit, $4




DETAILS: Our Exclusive Luxe Lash Kit collaboration with Weylie Hoang features a set of multi-dimensional crisscross lashes that add bold volume for a flirty look. The expertly tapered hairs blend seamlessly into your natural lashes. The lash band is made of soft flexible material allowing the lashes to move easily with every eye shape. The kit includes one pair of lashes and lash glue making these lashes perfect for special occasion or everyday use.

HOW TO USE: Gently remove lash from tray and trim lashes to fit your eye shape. Unscrew the top of the adhesive tube and apply a thin amount of glue along the entire length of the lash strip. Allow glue to sit until tacky, then place lashes as close to the baseline of your own lashes as possible, working from the center out. Hold the lash in place for a few seconds until the lash strip has a chance to hold. To remove lashes hold a warm damp towel to the eye and gently peel off false lashes from the root.

First Impression Review: Foundation Stick

You guys know I love foundation, so I decided to do a first impressions review of a the new Hourglass Cosmetics Vanish Seamless Finish Stick Foundation in my new video! I decided to wear it out all day, to see how it holds up.  I went to the music festival Outside Lands to be able to test how the foundation held up both indoors and outdoors, for several hours at a time. Watch my video below to see the results!


Hong Kong Dessert



This is one of my favorite Chinese desserts! It is coconut milk with grass jelly and tapioca! Although most spots out here make this pretty well, nothing beats the time I had this in Hong Kong! Thinking of visiting again!

Fun Little Pet Photo Sesh

Helllloooo sistas!!

I keep telling myself, “I need to start blogging! I miss blogging!!”

Do you guys remember Xanga? Umm…too old for you? ….Ok let’s just say Tumblr. LOL!

I used to love blogging on Xanga or Tumblr! It’s like writing a super long tweet or Instagram post, except it’s actually ok to be long winded because it’s a blog. Do you guys ever write a long ass post on Instagram getting all deep and emotional and then think to yourself, “Ok is this too dramatic???” …..Cause I sure do! Well that’s not the reason I want to get back into blogging. Cause forreal, if I wanted to be long winded on Instagram…I would! But there’s a different place for being long winded and super detailed….HELLO BLOGGING WORLD!

I think this would be a fun place where I can get into more details about everything! Whether it be about my fur babies, beauty, advice, whatever it may be! Something about writing things out is just so therapeutic. Anyone else agree?

Well anywhoo, just wanted to come on here and say hello! Hope some of you still stuck around despite me not updating in MONTHHSSS! Here are some cute photos I took of my children today. Hope it brightens up your day or night!

That’s all for today! <3

We hit 1.2 million subscribers/sistas on my YouTube channel!

Hey guys!

Whoaaaa it’s still crazy to me that anyone would subscribe to my channel. No forreal, I sometimes really wonder what there is about me that you guys enjoy watching about. LMAO. But regardless of what it be, I just love and appreciate you all soooo much! Please know that you are all like family to me and I just wish I can personally meet all of you in person, grab coffee, have dinner, etc. Not just a normal meet & greet, but a legit sit down- get to know each other type of thing. I wish I had a clone machine…lol not really. But you know what I mean.

Soooo…welcome to my blog! I’m new to all of this…the last time I had anything like this, it was my Xanga (anyone remember Zanga?!) and my MySpace. I know you guys remember MySpace…haha! But here are my upcoming plans for this blog!

1. Regular updates of course

2. Inspiration (kind of like my personal pinterest)

3. Girl talks. Things happen to me everyday and I simply can’t make a girl talk video about it every time, but writing about it would be nice! So look out for girl talk topics on here, or if you guys have anything you want me to talk about, leave it in the comments!

4. My home decor & DIY. You all know I love my vintage, shabby chic shopping lifestyle. I will also give you guys updates of where I get my furniture and how I arrange them in my place!

And that’s all I have for now! Comment below if you have any suggestions or thoughts you have for my blog. I am open to all your ideas!

I hope you all have a wonderful day/evening. I love you and take care!

With love,


Feelings & Things

Hey guys!

I’m just editing my Monday video and decided to read some comments on my previous video I posted yesterday. After reading the comments, I felt so…I don’t even know how to describe it. The support from you guys is just amazing. I will warn you, this post is pretty emotional.

I’m sure most of you know I had lots of troubles as a kid, especially with self esteem and making friends. As much as I want to say I’m past that phase of my life, there are still times where I still remember that horrible feeling of not having friends and always afraid to try new things because I always feel like I’m not good enough, or people will just laugh at what I have to say. If you’ve seen my Draw My Life video that I posted about a year ago, then you would know I was suicidal growing up. I know this sounds so sad and dramatic, but it’s true. There’s been many nights I would lock myself up in my closet and write letters and title them “to be read after my death.” Not even dramatizing, but that’s what I did. I would cry in my closet and look at myself in the mirror and repeat to myself over and over “no one loves you. Not mom, not dad, not your sisters, not grandparents. Not one person. There’s no point of you being here.” There’s been a few times I got so depressed I ran down to my kitchen and grabbed a knife and thought about what was the easiest way to end it. Boy, am I glad I have a fear of blood. Otherwise, homegirl wouldn’t be here today!

Again, that sounds so dramatic. But that’s just how I was. Anyway, the point of that really personal story is that at that time of my life, I would’ve never thought I can get past it. I told myself I know I’m not gonna make it to being an adult. Because sooner or later, I would have the courage to just “do it.” I get comments and messages from you guys a lot and realize many of you guys are going through what I went through.  One thing I can say to you is that things will always get better. Even if they don’t, YOU will get better at handling it. NEVER, EVER think of cutting your life short because you never know what is ahead of you. Obstacles in your life right now are there to teach you a lesson, every time. When I was younger, I felt like obstacles were there to torture me. Yes, they feel like it. But they’re not. They’re there to teach you to be stronger, to teach you how to grow up, to teach you how to handle hardships. So I hope that you remember this! Whether this applies to you right now or not. Life is full of surprises, happy ones and heartbreaking ones. Always remember things will get better and to always have hope. That is what got me through the times I thought I couldn’t get through. Everyday, practice to be positive.

Next thing I want to say is that, I am forever grateful for your support. Whether you are a viewer on my YouTube channel, a reader here on my blog, a friend of mine, my family, a former classmate – I am thankful for you. I never learned to appreciate my life this much and feel so proud of myself until I started my YouTube channel. I was never smart in school (I’m still not, lol) and family members told me I’m going to be a useless person. Rude right? Anyway, I never thought I would have this many friends. You are all my friends, as cheesy as that sounds. I know we don’t know each other personally, but I want you to know you’re the reason I am the person I am today. You guys are always there to watch my videos, comment back to me on Twitter & Instagram, and leaving supportive comments just every where possible. Those things you guys do for me pushes me every day and puts a smile on my face. The opportunities I’ve been given from my YouTube career is all thanks to you guys. Because you guys believe in me and support me. I’m able to work with brands I never imagined I could and go to places I never imagined because of your support. My family can live a more stable life because of you guys. So thank you.

I will always strive to be better for you guys and for myself. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart.
