Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Updates!

Although not very easy to schedule in between the cries of a little baby :P , this week's task is to finalize the VH07V inventory so I know exactly how many shirts I have left and in what colors/sizes. Then, I will be placing a 3rd order - a really BIG one - to prepare for my first booth appearance at the upcoming 2012 Hawaii Ocean Expo, on April 21st (9am-7:30pm) & 22nd (9am-5pm) at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall.

I am planning on ordering a couple new color combos, stuff for the ladies & keiki, and even cool, looking embroidered hats! Cross your fingers I can get it all done in time! :)

Other than that, my friend sent in this pic of a recent VH07V sighting at the Kamiloiki Keiki Carnival. Thanks Kari! The guy in the pic is Jon and the banner he is holding is of a mutual friend's (Stacie) cute clothing company for da wahine called Flutter & Bliss 808. Support local and check them out k? ;)

As always, a big mahalos to everyone for your support and helping to spread the VH07V! 8)


Have a happy VH07V Wednesday y'all! Shoooots!

Not sure if I mentioned this to you guys before, but I'm currently in a body fat loss competition with some friends which started back on January 1st. Our final weigh-out/measurement is on April 1st (yeah, April Fool's Day ironically) so I only have a little over a week left to go for this torture of not being able to eat junk food... Much! One thing I miss is plate lunches.

*GROOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWL*

Sorry, that was the sound of my tummy as I nibble on this salad. :( Depressing no? Anyway, this week's WIH theme is plate lunches and fried chicken in particular. Go get um cuzins!

The bad news? After fulfilling all requests, I'm already running low on many sizes/colors and even ran out in others! 200+ gone in 1 week!? Wow! This thing is really taking off and it's pretty dang exciting!

I guess I have to order A LOT more for round 3, and then strategically slow down on the sales in preparation for my first booth appearance at the upcoming 2012 Hawaii Ocean Expo, on April 21st (9am-7:30pm) & 22nd (9am-5pm) at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall! See how I did that right there? :P It would be shmall kine embarrassing if I run out after the first day! Then again, that would be a good thing yeah? :)

Anyway, big mahalos to everyone for your support and helping to spread the word about this grassroots, local brand, that all started right here! ;) You da bessessist!

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Updates!

On Sunday, we had our very first photo shoot for the VH07V line and I'm supah excited to see how the photos came out! We shot wifey's two cousins (brother and sister combo) in a very Hawaii-ish Shave Ice scene. Here's a look behind the scenes. Looks legit right? ;)

VH07V Photo Shoot at Kakaako Kool
VH07V Photo Shoot at Kakaako Kool

Special mahaloz to the following, in no particular order:

  • Jana and Kaka`ako Kool for allowing us to shoot on your property and for feeding us your bomb shave ice! (Give them a visit at: 831 Queen Street, Honolulu, HI 96813, Mon-Fri: 8am-6pm, Sat:11am-4pm)!
  • Marc Orbito of hungry eYe photography. Email him for your photographic needs: marc (at) orbito.net
  • C & K (probably shouldn't name them :P ) for being my cute models and their parents (our uncle and aunty) for being supportive of the new VH07V venture.
  • Todd W for letting us borrow your bench for the shave ice scene.
  • Wifey and bebe for hanging out and being patient during the shoot. 8)

---

Barring another delay, my new order of 200+ additional shirts is supposed to be pau today! Hopefully, I'll be able to pick up what I've been waiting for a month for, so I can continue my grass roots efforts of sales and distribution out of the trunk of my car. :P In anticipation of selling from my booth at the upcoming Hawaii Ocean Expo, I'll probably be ordering another color combination or two, in addition to keiki sizes and a possible style for da wahine out dea. Exciting!

---

As mentioned above, I'll have a booth at the 2012 Hawaii Ocean Expo, happening on April 21st (9am-7:30pm) & 22nd (9am-5pm) at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall! Come on down and visit me and/or tell your friends and family too k? And remember, if I still didn't get to you 6 remaining VH07V Free T-shirt Winners, I'll have them for you at the booth. Just come on down! :)


Have a happy VH07V Wednesday y'all! Shoooots!

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Updates!

On the VH07V Facebook page, a friend recently sent me a picture of her - with her VH07V shirt - next to local songbird Anuhea! Cool yeah?

---

My new order has been delayed again. :( The T-shirt company was low on the sizes and colors I wanted for my blanks so my new order of 200 shirts is still forthcoming. I'm hoping the screener can get those done soon!

---

I'm happy to announce that I will have a booth at the 2012 Hawaii Ocean Expo, happening on April 21st (9am-7:30pm) & 22nd (9am-5pm) at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall! Pretty nerve-racking but definitely excited for the opportunity. Make sure you come down and visit me k? As mentioned last week, I'll definitely have new colors and hopefully some stuff for the keiki and wahine out dea! If I still didn't get to you 6 remaining VH07V Free T-shirt Winners yet by then, I'll have them for you at the show. Just come on down! :)


It's Academic!

In case you missed my 15 seconds of "fame" and are just dying to see it (cause I know you can't go another day without it! :P ), here's the link to the video online:

It's Academic Hawaii: Week 8 - Hanalani Schools, McKinley High School & Waiakea High School
It's Academic Hawaii: Week 8 - Hanalani Schools, McKinley High School & Waiakea High School

My three questions to the keiki were:

* True or False: The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific is located on Kaho'olawe.
* True of False: The USS Arizona Memorial is located in Honolulu Harbor.
* True or False: Bishop Museum was founded by Charles Reed Bishop.

Hahd no? How many can you answer correctly? 8)


Have a happy VH07V Wednesday y'all! Shoooots!
