As I mentioned in part one during the beginning of the mask craze most had to be handmade as companies did not regularly provide face masks. Before the mandate even started we began making masks in our household which is why I have quite the collection by now. As you may have guessed there was a lot of trial and error to finding out what works and does not work for me personally.
For instance, I do wear glasses so at first we adapted the pipe cleaner technique and while yes it did work for awhile it did eventually prod its way out. Honestly, now I gravitate towards masks that are custom fit to my face over ones with the metal insert when it comes to homemade. While you can buy the large metal nose inserts to put inside I find it more of a hassle as with the cost you might as well just buy one made already.
For handmade mask tutorials check out my post here, it includes free mask patterns as well. I suppose the many advantages to handmade is the fact that it is a custom fit and the ability to use fun printed fabrics. I’ve seen people embroider on their masks, do fun quilting patterns and so many things.

Have you made your own face mask if so send me a photo so I can see all your fun designs.
We discussed how hauls can be destructive but also informative a bit ago. It is that time of year again… my BIRTHDAY!!! Yay! For my birthday haul this year I have collected even more freebie information for you guys to bank on for your birthday as well as a collective haul of what I received from friends and family.
Magazines, Pinterest, YouTube, and even the various people we cross paths with on the street spark inspiration for new trends, different styles and all things fashion. Recently, it has been brought to my attention that several famous youtubers and social media gurus spoke up about the fact that they buy items simply to use them as content. Fashion hauls are a huge part of this massive consumer issue of want, want, NEED. Titles such as “spending too much at Target” or “massive summer hauls” draw in a large crowd but why?
Once the page loaded and all my favorite items from the Vineyard Vines Target Collab were sold out of, literally every size, I debated if it was even worth it to drive down to the store before the doors opened. Since most youtubers had their videos posted within hours of stores opening I wanted to add in my thoughts as to why a business as large as Target would make the “mistake” of running out of product that is clearly in demand.
For a while now I have been keeping an eye out on a couple of brands that I have yet to experience myself. After watching a couple of review videos online for the brand Gym Shark, it seemed to be a bad idea to try as most of them harped on the fact that most of their items were not squat proof and were prone to camel toe. Two qualities no one wants from their apparel, especially their active wear. Now that the company has been around for a couple years I was hoping that things would improve which is why I decided to give them a shot.
Included at the bottom is of course an in depth review of each item in “real time”, kind of.
The reason this was not a try on haul was mainly due to the fact that pieces did not fit or were too see through to show.

Who else loves unboxing and haul videos, especially fashion ones? Eep, today I made my first one and I want to share with you all first of course. Although I have been publishing youtube videos lately I am planning on using them more as a tool to get to know you all better here on the blog. That being said, here on the blog I will be sharing more than on youtube in order to provide a V.I.P. level of experience here for my fellow sassy subscribers.
