Leggings for Short Girls

Hey guys, short girl (5′) here! After years of trying on and buying pairs of leggings, I have found my favorite pairs. This is a video I created featuring me wearing them:

The brands include Aerie by American Eagle and Girlfriend Collective (which I also did a more thorough review on here).

Aerie Chill High Waisted Legging* ($20**):

  • Available in short, regular, and long lengths
  • Underwear doesn’t show through
  • For everyday wear

Aerie Play High Waisted Pocket Legging ($35**):

  • Available in short, regular, and long lengths
  • Underwear doesn’t show through
  • For workouts and everyday wear

Girlfriend Collective High-Rise Leggings ($68):

  • One length but they have a separate legging called the 7/8 legging which is geared towards shorter people (it’s next on my list of leggings to buy!)
  • Underwear doesn’t show through
  • Made in Vietnam with recycled water bottles!
  • For workouts and everyday wear

*If you don’t like high-waisted leggings; the aerie chill legging is the same exact thing (not see through, for everyday wear).

**This is the retail price but they are usually on sale for less.

Exploring Kansas City with Enactus USA 2017

A short video of my experiences at the Enactus National Competition USA 2017 in Kansas City, Missouri aka KCMO.

College Advice: Things YOU Need to Know

I’ve been planning on filming this video for such a long time and finally got around to it! Based on two years of being a college student; here is what I’ve learned and my advice to you:

These are the timestamps for what I mentioned and extra details:

0:22 Unassigned Assigned Seats
0:38 Save on Textbooks!!!
3:08 Getting Classes You WANT
4:42 Asking For Deadline Extensions
5:50 Class Attendance
6:25 Staying Organized

Textbook websites to check out:
http://www.abebooks.com
http://www.thiftbooks.com
http://www.chegg.com
http://www.amazon.com

Hope you learned something new today & here are THIINGS I FORGOT TO MENTION:
– Ratemyprofessor: Use this site to get a general idea of how your professor is, do not pay attention to love/hate, instead focus on constructive criticism or how the professor’s teaching style is.
– For textbooks: If the class is an integral part of your major, you might want to buy it instead of renting it so you can refer back to it when you need to. If it’s just a class you need for credits or something not directly related to your major, feel free to save more money by renting.

KALA Ukulele Unboxing

I just ordered a Kala Ukulele so I could get started on learning how to play the ukulele and it’s better than what I was expecting *_*

This is the unboxing and tuning video I made:

So far, I’ve had no issues with this ukulele and have learned to play a few chords that go together for the song Riptide by Vance Joy.

Baking Sunflower Cupcakes!

Last week, I spent a few hours with friends in my kitchen baking and decorating cupcakes. I had expressed how much I missed making pretty cupcakes for school bake sales when I was in high school and we all wanted to bake again! Now that I’m in college, there are way less opportunities to host bake sales on campus…

Here is a video of how we made them and more:

These are also how our pictures turned out:

COSRX Korean Pimple Patches?! Do they work…

Hey there! I recently got my hands on Korean “Acne Pimple Master Patches” that apparently makes your pimples disappear or drastically reduce them overnight!

I made a video demo and review of them on YouTube:

Did it work? YES.

Will I buy it again? YES.

I highly recommend that you at least try this because it flattens out your pimple overnight and the pus comes right off with the sticker instead of worrying about getting bacteria inside and damaging skin cells around your pimples.

The stickers seem to work best on flatter facial features because it stuck on all night on my forehead but was halfway peeling off when I used it on my upper lip overnight.

Feel free to ask me any questions about this product; I’m not an expert and I was not sponsored to review this but I think I know what I’m doing!

 

 

The Prom Photo Series

Hey guys! This past month, my friend Kathy and I have accompanied Tu and Oscar during their pre-prom festivities to help take prom photos for them.

I vlogged during both days! May 5th (I think) and May 17th;

As you can see, it was rainy during the first prom and then sunny and bright for their second prom.

Here’s a little bit of what I shot during the first shoot:Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

I did not edit the photos for the second shoot yet, if I do then I will post them here too.
