When I was little during pool parties the other kids were always amazed that my foot prints were almost a perfect foot. They thought it was cool but I knew even then that it wasn’t something to be proud of but rather it meant issues to come. Fast forward to high school where I got knocked down by a swinging door in high heels which lead to my first foot surgery. Currently, I still have issues with my feet so one night I started doing research because to be honest, yes there are shoes out there to help your feet but the majority are hideous. As a young adult I feel that is a major problem with the footwear market since if they do not look cute they will not be worn until years down the line when severe damage is already done.
When it comes to the question what is my dream job it has always encompassed two things, fashion and creating which is why I finally took the plunge and opened up an Esty shop!!! No, I am not hoping for overnight success but the ultimate goal is earning enough to support myself and my family one day. I like the freedom creating gives me and to be honest I’ve always fancied what goes on the item rather than making the actual item from 100% scratch. It’s an amazing feeling knowing that someone is enjoying and creating memories in something you designed.
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.
While we are still mandated to wear masks in California, I thought it was well overdo to do a mask try on haul of my favorite masks from popular sportswear brands Bloch and Athleta. At the beginning every mask was handmade, however, now almost every company has come out with their own face mask. I’ve even seen shirts come with a face mask, which brought me back to being little when your nightgown would come with a Barbie sized duplicate.
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.

As what is one item you recently added to your collection or are hoping to purchase for this new season?
Many Youtubers have been wearing Albion Fit swimwear for the last couple of years raging about their high quality, modesty and overall chic style. Before jumping into this post, no, this post is not sponsored by Albion Fit. The key to feeling and looking confident in a swimsuit is knowing what body type you have and wearing a suit that excentuates it.
What a bitter sweet weekend coming up, augh!! The very last Avengers movie, I can not honestly believe the series will be over. To celebrate the finale I decided to make it extra special with a full on outfit and makeup inspired look. Lucky my sister is a bigger nerd than I am with Avenger movies so these were already in her shopping cart before coming up with this idea. As I am not as diehard of a fan as my sister, I will most likely be wearing one of the shirts or sweatshirts for the premiere.
Since it has been awhile since my last style file or what I wore this week this seemed to be the perfect time. The weather around this neck of the woods in California has been a bit chilly with foggy rainy mornings and sunny afternoons. For a reference, it has been around 57-65 degrees Fahrenheit here. Considering the fact that it is required to wear closed toed shoes in the office I rarely wear heels unless they are boots. That being said I still uphold a semi relaxed formal attire. All of these looks include soft, warm yet breathable material to provide all day comfort.
Previously we discussed in an earlier post that trends are not the be all end all in fashion. If you happen to love a trend try it. On the flip side if you hate it you do not have to wear it just to be fashionable. Fitting in goes against fashion as it should be a unique personal thing that varies from person to person. Your style gives people a personal glimpse of your personality, likes and dislikes without even uttering a word to them. Trends are simply to inspire creativity in fashion and usually they are on a wide scope so it is unlikely someone would adapt all of the season’s trends.
