    In this behind the scenes vlog, I take y'all along on a (super awkward) day in my life of shooting and modeling for a lookbook. Along the way, I showcase my subpar vlogging skills, my ratchet camera setup, and how I find locations for shooting fashion videos.

    I hope this answers some of you your questions about how I make my videos and what my ~youtube life~ is like! I also hope I can inspire some of you guys to get out there and shoot some fashion videos or outfit photos because it's totally possible to do it all by yourself! :)

                              This is fun to watch! I always feel awkward even just posing for a picture. Everyone keep looking usually it's asian like I am, they tend to be curious is what or how I pose I think. Hope you can do this type of video more =)
