Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Here are some frequently asked questions I’ve come across on my YouTube. If I haven’t answered any of your questions, feel free to comment on my videos!


📷 What camera do you use to film your videos?

I use different types of cameras depending on what type of video I’m filming (i.e. vlogs, FILAM FANGIRL videos, lookbooks, travel vlogs). I use the Canon T5i with many different lenses, the Canon G7x, and the GoPro Hero 4.

🎥 What do you use to edit your videos?

Final Cut Pro X. Prior to that, I’ve used iMovie, Sony Vegas, and the ancient Windows Movie Maker.

🎧 Where do you get your background music?

YouTube Audio Library.

🎥 Who designed your YouTube Channel Art?

I did! I used the same font I used for this blog, and designed it on Adobe Photoshop.

✏ Can I interview you for my blog?

I love answering questions for other blogs and YouTube channels. If you are interested in interviewing me, please send me an email at racheltorrelino(at) with your list of questions and a link to your blog/channel! I’ll tweet and facebook out the link to our interview once you publish it.


🌎 Where are you from?

I’m from lots of places, but most of my life is based in California.

🍊 Where do you live?

Currently floating around San Diego, California — yes, the beautiful, beach-side San Diego.

⌛ How old are you?

I was born in December (early 90s) — you can do the math 😜

🇵🇭 Are you filipino?

Yes, I’m full filipino. I was born in Hawaii and raised in California. People usually get this confused and think I’m “half filipino” because I say I’m “Filipino-American” but I hope they understand that both my parents are full Filipino, so I’m culturally Filipino and nationally American by citizenship.

🙋🏽 How tall are you?

In my mind, I’m as tall as I imagine myself to be. Physically, I’m 5’1.75. (yes! the .75-inch matters)

💕 Do you have a boyfriend?

No, I had a boyfriend, but now he’s a husband and I highkey love him. My husband and I have been friends since 2006, dated since 2009, and got married in 2017! He popped the question, and six weeks later we said “I do!” Hang out with the Torrelinos sometime on our vlog channel.
