Review: Gillette Venus Swirl Razor #ChooseToSmooth

IMG_1967So I’ve seen this razor in stores for monnnthhhsss now and just couldn’t bring myself to bite the bullet.

I’ve tried lots of razors and had basically given up on the expensive ones. The shave I would get just did not justify the price tag! In my mind I might as well stick with the moderate priced ones. A Shave is a shave right?

Well maybeeeeee not….  (more…)

Fashion Inspiration: Sequin Skirts!

In recent months I’ve become a Pinterest feignnnnn! lol

I think this love for all things pinterest was birthed out of the fact that the memory on my iPhone was quicklyyyy dwindling. 3000+ pics and there just wasn’t space for more.

Maybe one of you feels my pain lol so I had to do something. I transferred all my pics to my computer but that didn’t solve things for long nor did it solve the fact that I liked having my inspiration portable…or more portable than a laptop was affording me the luxury of.

Anywhooo I liked the idea that I could keep all my fashion inspiration pics on pinterest and organize them and access them whenever I wanted. Plus the added benefit of searching the endless post on pinterest for more inspiration……it’s heaven to say the least 🙂

sequins

All pics are from my Pinterest board: Fashion Inspiration 

So here is a mood board of some of my recent inspiration…. sequin Skirts. It’s gradually getting hotter here in AZ and I know that last summer I just wasn’t feeling shorts for some crazy reason! So as an alternative I’ve been stocking up on skirts. I want to have fun with it though and have sportyLUX looks and glam dressed down looks and all things in between so sequin skirts and tee’s have been on my mind a lot lately. I scored a few awesome ones at Plato’s closet recently that I’ll be posting in an upcoming haul video on my youtube channel but until then I’ve been on the hunt for different and fun ways to wear them on an everyday vibe…..hope you enjoy! 🙂

Outfits of the Week || OOTW || Early Feb 2015

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnmKJ3SKLt8&w=560&h=315]

So this is how things all got started on my blog!

Me doing outfit videos because I had a crappy camera that took crappy pics and the videos were the only way I could disguise the bad quality. lolThis was my favorite thing about my blog though. The creativity of editing the videos and adding music and making it an “experience” making it about a feeling.

Thennnnn somewhere along the way I started to conform to how all the other blogs were doing things. Taking static pics and having a little write up about what I was wearing or why I choose it….blah blah blah. Which don’t get me wrong I don’t knock it because it works for a lot of people but in the end it just isn’t 100% me. I don’t have that much to say about why I choose the outfit….I just did….because it felt right. lol Which is why I had stopped doing “fashion” blogging as it was.

Then recently I decided to start a youtube channel also named Je M’appelle Shen (Check it out!) and I feel like I’m back to where I started making lookbook and styling videos where I get to add my creative flare and have fun with it again and I’m excited and rejuvenated and eager to bring more styling videos.

Hope you all enjoy! 🙂

I love thrifting so I styled some winter looks around some of the recent items I picked up 🙂

Enjoy!
