{Chic Taping} Day 2 & Some Irony, Again?

HulaGirl owner and me after filming that segment. Aloha! C/O camerawoman.


Waiting for direction.


Tasting cupcakes!


The waiting game is always fun!

So, remember I talked about a new online network launching in just a short bit which I’ve been lucky enough to a part of by hosting my own food/travel web series? If not, check out the teaser post. In mid-June, I had 5 days of intense filming, covering 10 looks. Not too bad in the fashion sense, other than it being 100+ degrees and some icky humidity (the one thing that makes D.C. so unattractive) which had me batty and wanting to dive into the nearest hotel pool! Imagine the makeup touch-ups. No fun at all. By the end of my days, I felt like a 4-layer cake!

My 2nd day was colorful and busy visiting food trucks in D.C. I didn’t put too much thought into what I was going to wear. I mostly wanted to be comfortable and cool since I’d be outside all day long. I also knew there’d be a lot of running around, chasing down these social media-driven businesses handing out delicious eats. And, potentially sipping iced coffee as I waited for real customer lines to taper enough for me to jump in to do my work.

You know my intention was to wear heels, no matter the situation! But, I seriously needed some ease in maneuvering around the city! It was a sacrifice, but I ended up with flats. It all worked out. Something ironic I just noticed, which may be of absolute nothingness. But, the shoes I wore happened to be ones I bought in Hawai’i almost two years ago when my brother got married. The lone time I’ve been and have shopped there. One of 4 pairs of shoes I stuck in my bag during that awesome vacay. And, it just so happens that the one truck I really had a good time filming with is the single Hawaiin food truck in the entire city.

I’m telling you! When the stars align, they just do!

  1. Super cute outfit and I love that pink cupcake truck. That is an awesome idea, how much were they BTW? Not that it would matter, just wondering how much in case I ever do the same thing..lol I just really love it when you see really unique ideas put into action.

  2. I love that look. Yes, very casual for you, but it worked for what you were doing. I'm so happy for you and all that you're doing. I hope there's more to come.

  3. Monica: Thanks! The Pink Truck is popular here in DC<br /><br />Smash Bravo: They were about $3/piece. A bit pricey but they sell out fast. They only set up about 5 hours a day. <br /><br />Isabel: Oh, you must! 🙂 <br /><br />Natalia: Thanks! :)<br /><br />BloggingBabies: Thanks! 🙂 <br /><br />Nina: Si, mija. Y yo me acabo de comer un huge piece de carrot cake. <br /><br />Michele the Belle:
