Filming for a News Station and Forever21

Friday, August 6, 2010

The day of the shoot was a long and exciting one for me.
It was really stressful at first and I didn't really know what to expect at first.
When they were crossing the street, heading straight for my house, the neighbors came out to see what the commotion was all about.
My mom was cracking me up because she was taking pictures the whole time and trying to fix my hair and reminding me to sit up.
These pictures may not be the best quality,
they were shot with my moms camera.
These were some of the nicest people I have ever worked with.
The filming started with me cooking for Kris.
I made him a quick breakfast that felt took a year for me to cook because they filmed the whole processes. Also they filmed us eating, which was definitely hard for us to keep a straight face.
Then they wanted to see what it was like for me to make videos:
where I stood, my set up, and what products I would share with you all.
They also asked about the reaction of my audience, good and bad.
The camera man was the most active. He had to carry around that thing every where, even outside of my living room window! Can you see the box (Jude's toy) that I use for a prop to hold up my camera?? haha. I have a trouble using the tripod that I own, that box is so much easier!

After the the sit down interview they wanted to hit up the mall, which was my favorite part!
Forever21 West Covina, Ca
was the store we visited. I was excited because its the mall that me and my girl friends went to growing up, it was cool to be there not only to shop but to be on TV!

The staff at FOREVER21 treated me like a celebrity. I think almost all of the employees offered to help in anyway they could. Down to following me and holding the items I picked out.
Of course I declined! I can hold my own things, haha.
Kris was more excited than usual to be out shopping. As we rode the escalator and ppl were taking our pix (some of my subbies where there) Kris was like
"I feel like I'm with a Celebrity"

I couldn't wait to get home and share this story with you all.
If it wasn't for all of my subscribers I would not be able to have as many opportunities as I have had. So again, thank you from the bottom of my heart. You guys are amazing!

Now to my a peek at my haul, I wanted to show the details of my favorite accessories.
To watch the full video click here.
I shopped at the store, but you can find similar items online.

Kris picked out these cool "cross" earrings. I love how different each cross is and the weight.
I have the smallest little monkey ears and I cant wear most styles too long because they start to throb!
These next earrings can be worn with a nice dress, down to just jeans and a plain t-shirt.
These ones are bit heavier...but nothing I cant handle ;)

I wanted to link you all to the earrings online but they are either sold out, or not up yet.
Once again, thank you all for supporting me in everyday! I really appreciate it.
My little Dunka Family appreciates it.
Big *Hugs*

Sonia, i havent been following you
for that long but i can definitely
tell that you are a real down to
earth person, you arent fake like
many youtube gurus are, you
always say you love your subbies
but unlike some other gurus you
actually make the effort to show
that you love them, by constantly
answering comments, and being so
sweet. youtube needs more people
like you!!!! :D
