My Coachella experience this year (Weekend 1) was phenomenal since I brought all of my Coachella Essentials. I got to see many of my favorite artists such as Radiohead, SchoolBoy Q, Future, Lady Gaga, Hans Zimmer, Phantogram, The XX, Travis Scott, Justice and much more. I also got to meet plenty of chill people that were full of positive energy.

Top 10 Coachella Essentials

  1. Hand Sanitizer – For those icky moments
  2. Hand Wipes – For getting sticky stuff off your hands or to freshen up after sweating from the heat
  3. Portable Phone Charger – Trust me, it’s a life saver
  4. Tissues –  For little accidents and patting off your face. (When I was in a very hot crowd, I would pat my face continuously to avoid my makeup melting
  5. Vitamin C – Out of all the people I know who went to Coachella, 7 out of 10 people would get sick, and so it doesn’t hurt to boost your immune system!
  6. Sunblock – make sure you don’t get aerosol cans!
  7. Lip Balm – the desert gets you pretty dry
  8. Sunglasses – For obvious reasons
  9. Bandages – If you’re wearing new shoes, you might want to keep a bandage just in case you feel a blister coming
  10. Eye drops – There’s A LOT OF DUST so eye drops can feel like a lifesaver, especially when grooving through a cool performance

As for clothing, I do suggest wearing comfortable shoes and light clothing. If you get cold easily (like me), bring a light jacket. I just tied a denim jacket around my bag or waist so that I could have my hands free. As for what I wore, I did a quick lookbook below. If you like it, please subscribe! ^^

Absolut Limelight Tent – One of the Coachella Essentials

If you’re looking for something to get you a little more pumped, I highly recommend visiting the Absolut Limelight Tent. It’s a fun tent to hang out and have a couple of drinks while dancing to a really “turnt” DJ. My favorite part of the tent was the photo booth. Pretty cool GIF to have as a Coachella souvenir. Also, please remember to enjoy responsibly; you don’t want to burn out and miss a few performances!

StyleCon 2016 | Let’s Meet Up!

StyleCon 2016

Hey everyone! Happy Friday! I can’t believe it’s already November which is the time for StyleCon! It seriously feels like yesterday was mid-October… So much as happened since the last time I wrote a blog post. Let’s have a quick overview of what I’ve done so far:

As some of you know, I modeled for Los Angeles Fashion Week! The fashion line I walked for is called Irish Latina by Rebecca Rivera. Rebecca is an extraordinary designer that studied fashion in both California and New York. I had such an awesome time that day, being able to walk on a huge lit-up runway where hundreds of cameras are pointed at you. I was nervous at first, but the moment I stepped foot onto the runway, that nervousness disappeared and I simply had fun. What was great during the show was that it was a more casual fashion show where the models can freely walk the runway. I prefer that kind of fashion show because I was able to make eye contact with the audience. It’s an amazing feeling to be able to look at them directly and give them an impression, see their expression, and create an undeviating connection. I will never forget this day!

How to “Build A Character” from VidCon 2015

This past weekend, was my very first time attending VidCon! As we all know, online videos especially on YouTube, is the new staple of online media platforms.

 

Many YouTube users like me create channels but the first thing we ask ourselves is, “What should I post? What sort of video should I make?” My Youtube Channel is YukiBombOfficial but I have not uploaded any major videos onto my channel. There was one panel that I thought was very helpful for people starting off on YouTube. The panel was called “Building a Character” and it was hosted by comical Buzzfeed YouTube Stars such as Ella Mielniczenko, Ashly Perez, Quinta Brunson, Sara Rubin, and Eugene Yang. I want to share what I learned from this panel.

Building A Character Panel

“Starting Out”

First is “Starting Out”. The first thing to do when building your character is simply starting with yourself. Think about yourself and how you describe yourself. Begin with broad archetypes and add as you go. For example, you can ask yourself, “Am I an introvert or extrovert?” Anything new is “nerve-racking” and takes courage to start and move forward.

“Refining a Character”

Second is “Refining a Character”. Once you have a base character for yourself, you can refine it and make it come to life. For example, what is the worst case scenario for an awkward and weird girl? When you cannot think about a situation to start with, think about a funny conversation you had with friends. Another crucial tip is after making a video, look at the comments and learn from it.

“Building a World”

Third is “Building a World”. A place creates characteristics and elements that a character can use including culture. Having a friend with you or audience also creates characteristics. For example, the television show, “Zack and Cody” takes place on a ship so the environment is part of a character. Culture also intertwines with character because you can use what is around you. Ask yourself, “How are the viewers responding?”

“Considering the Audience”

Fourth is “Considering the Audience”. Who are you relating to? Someone out there relates to you, what you do, and what you feel. As you realize that relatability, you have a responsibility to keep it consistent. Through that responsibility, build faith and integrity for your audience. Also keep in mind of your character when reacting to social media. By doing so, you’re still being true to your character.

“Building Across Social Platforms”

Last is “Building Across Social Platforms”. As your personality is developed, you get to see what works. There are three crucial points to this last section of building character.

  • Consistency of character across platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, etc.)
  • Diversify format across platforms.
    • Snapchat Teaser, Twitter alert, Facebook photo, Use a different photo for Instagram
  • Frequency – the audience wants to hear more from you so you need to continue posting content.

“Am I the only one to think this?”

Also, a character should not be afraid to be oneself. Thoughts like, “Am I the only one to think this?” are probably the best ideas because it takes courage to represent what you are thinking. Don’t be afraid of giving more of yourself on social media. Viewers are watching you because they like you or relate to you.

 

Here’s a little video of a live performance by MadMoni on Awesomeness TV Stage over in VidCon. It takes a lot of courage to build character and represent it confidently. :]

BeautyCon LA ... Barbie ... Nike Women ... Nike Angel ... Nike Shoes Wing ... Event in LA ... Fantasy Land for Girls

BeautyCon Merch Booth

Last Saturday, July 11th, I attended BeautyCon LA. I had an amazing time there, but unfortunately I was not able to Periscope (my user name is @OgYukiBomb). When I arrived around 11:45am, the traffic was crazy, weather was warm, and the location was already crowded. Luckily, I was able to skip the long line because I was under “press” for LA18 (and I am extremely grateful for it). Although I was part of press, I still waited in a very congested crowd of cranky attendees.

After the mission to get inside, BeautyCon LA was like a fantasy land for girls. There were so many photo booths, panels, displays, giveaways, and more.

Barbie 360 Booth

There was a Barbie section where you can have a customized order of your own Barbie. I think everyone’s favorite thing about this section was the Barbie 3D photo booth. There was a selection of Barbie dolls you can use as props and you just have fun posing in the booth.

Nike Giveaway Earrings

Another memorable booth was the Nike booth. There was a line to take a photo with the angel wings made of Nike shoes for a good reason. While I was in line, I wanted to take pictures of the angel wings without me. So I asked a cute girl at the con to take one for me. She was really sweet and nice about it. Her Instagram is @CrystalyLiu :] Once a person took their picture, they just need to upload it to social media, tag #NikeWomen then show it to a Nike representative. In return, you can choose from a selection of a giveaway. I chose the earrings. :p

The Platform ... Minnie Mouse Ears ... Inflatable Donuts ... Beauty Con LA ... Fantasy Land for Girls

I love donuts! I really do…

Another section I really enjoyed was The Platform. It was a nice little space to take pictures and every hour there was a panel. A really cute one was to make your own Minnie Mouse ears. Next to The Platform, there were inflatable props to take pictures with. Of course, I chose the donut. :]

What do you guys think of the con? I think it was definitely worth the wait to explore these little fun events. :] It is also a great way to meet new people. <3
