I hope everyone is having a wonderful December. Even though i live in northern California a.k.a The Bay Area i still try to be as festive as i can. It can also get a little hard when we barely get any rain or cold weather. But at least out of those to the nights have been freezing or what i like to call freezing 36 degrees Fahrenheit LOL. Anyways if you would like to see my daily vlogs for the month of December, check out my beauty channel on YouTube www.youtube.com/fashionshychild :)

Valfre Review and Experience

Untitled
A month ago on Instagram i was looking though my feeds and saw Doe Deere (Founder and CEO of Lime Crime Cosmetics) post a lovely drawing and told everyone to go follow @valfre. At the time i didn't have a clue who Valfre was and what this person was about. The only thing i new was that i loved the drawings i saw. So i went over to @valfre Instagram page and what i saw amazed me. Therefor i decided to do this review for you all.
So in this review, I will cover these Points: Packaging, Product Review (with Pros & Cons), and My Final Thoughts. So lets get started and make sure to check out valfre.com . :)

Packaging: When you receive your package in the mail, the bubble rap envelope (i guess that what it is called) looks like know other. Its a bright pink (or you can say Magenta) color that shines like no tomorrow. You will be jumping up and down with excitement. When you finally stop and take a breath and open the package of excitement you will see some extra goodies in the bag. You will get what you ordered, a thank you / business card and a sticker. * I only ordered one Phone Case, Therefore if you order any more or a bigger product, i do not know how your packaging will come or look..
 
Product Review: I ordered the Iphone 5 case in Maneater . It comes nicely packaged as you can see in the first picture above. The case looks exactly like it did on the website. It is a hard case and it snaps on fitting the iphone 5 very snug.That being said it is not hard to take off by any means. The case does have a soft finish but i haven't noticed and scratching or fading yet. When i bought the case when the site first launched, the case was $18USD now the case is going for $24USD.
  • Pros: Hard case, hand draw drawings, detailed, soft finish, will stand out in a crowd
  • Cons: Price can be kinda high
My Final Thoughts: I would recommend this case to anyone and i would recommend checking out the site. The case has been on my phone for a month now and i am so happy with it, i don't see myself taking it off any time soon. If the price in a little high for you, Valfre.com does have free shipping and percentage off a lot off the time. So that being said make sure to sign up to there mailing list so you don't miss out on all of the fun.

*Disclaimer: I was not told or paid to write this review. I am also not affiliated with any of the companies mentioned at this time. I purchased this case with my own money and everything said was of my own honest opinion.

I hope all of you are having a Happy Thanksgiving and enjoying your family's. Also remember to be safe out there Black Friday is CRAZY! 
 
This outfit was put together around the blouse. I did do a blog post a while back showing you three ways to style this skull blouse, but if you missed it here is the link (here). Out of the three ways, this look has to be my favorite. I also cant believe i pulled off a pink blouse like this.

Old School Days

Top: Levis (fontane) | Jeans: Red Blue Denim (Ross)  | Shoes: Target | Bracelets: Aldo | Earrings: Forever21

I had to take it back to my old school days (also known as Preschool). My mom would buy clothes like this for me and i loved it. I loved it so much it came all the way with me to middle school. Even though  that was the 90's and early 2000's we all know the style we once wore then will always come back into style. So dont i look fancy 20 years later?

I'm like every girl out there! I wake up in the morning, look in my closet and tell myself out loud, "why don't i have any clothes?" When anyone else can see i have a closet full of clothes. So i decided to think out side the box and put an outfit together with pieces i haven't worn in a while or even at all. Now i have a nice fall outfit i didn't know i had.

Skullcandy Aviator IPhone 5 Case Review

image
image
image
image
image


Hello! So about 2 months ago I bought this Skullcandy IPhone 5 Case at target. I have never seen a skullcandy phone case before and didn't know they made them. I was very shock to find this one, since it is the same color and design of the headphones i want from Skullcandy. Therefore i had to have it. 
So in this review, I will cover these Points: Packaging, Product review (with Pros & Cons), and My Final Thoughts. So lets get started. :) 
 
Packaging: The packaging is nothing but eye catching. So if you are a sucker for packaging you will be drown to Skullcandy.  The brand name and logo is big front and center. The style of the case is also on the front and they tell you what model this case fits very simply. They also have a cut out in the packaging so you can fill how the case is (great for when its locked up on display) 
 
Product Review: This case is sturdy, bright and don't look any where near CHEAP! Once this case is on your phone everyone you encounter will want to know what case you have and where did you get it. This is one of Skullcandys strong points, they will also have you standing out with any of there products. Are you not sold yet? Well don't think putting your headset in or touching the lock key will be a problem because it wont. They left those parts open for easy mobility.

Pros: sturdy, will stand out in a crowd, has  branding in the write places, will protect your phone from light drops, has an anti glare around the camera rim

Cons: Can be a little hard to take off your phone

My Final Thoughts: I would recommend this case to anyone and would also buy another one again. For the price of $34USD it is worth every penny. If you every wanted a different stand out case, you have found your mack with the Skullcandy Aviator IPhone 5 Case.

D.I.Y: My Jewelry Stand

image


I always get questions about my Jewelry stand, every since i placed a photo on Instagram. I could have swore a placed a DIY up about it, but looking back i only edited the pictures... my bad!. So here is the step by step Process on how to get this set up, hope you enjoy. 

1. The Party Pedestal
image
image
The Party Pedestal is the only thing you have to buy. I decided to buy one because it was cheaper and faster to by it off of Amazon than going to stores and buying all the pieces i would need. You can get any color you want that suits your display. (buy it here) The set comes with 5 easy to put together pieces (will show below)

2. Put it Together

image

3. Once Put Together
image
Once put together you can put anything you want on each layer. Just get creative and see what needs the most storage. Iv notice small earrings and necklaces need a lot of attention.

My Finished Layers
image

Bottom Layer: This is the biggest layer and i have a lot of nail polish that needs storing. So i decided to dedicate this layer to all of my nail polishes. I put the one i use the most in front and the last in back. (my collection has grown since this photo was taken)

image

 
Middle Layer: This section is dedicated to my bigger earrings (meaning any earrings that hang). I also keep charm bracelets on this level too!
image

Top Level: This section is for dainty jewelry like stud earrings and small necklaces. This is also the hardest section to keep organized.
The End
