Piercing Advice and Information

Hey fellow shy children!
So i have been putting this topic on the back burner for a while now. But recently the questions on my piercings have picked back up. Therefor it is time for me to explain and get the questions you have all been asking answered. I will not be showing you all my piercings in this video or post, there will be another time for that.
I will also like to put a disclaimer out there, this is not a post to encourage you to get piercings or  harass your parents to let you get them. This is just my advice and experience.
Therefore lets get into the Advice and Information!


When did you get your first piercing?
I got my main ear lobes pierced when i was a baby. I don't remember any of it, i just know my mom took me to get them done.
Advice:
If you are under 18 years of age and you didn't get your ears pierced young, your parents might have not wanted you to have it done or they didn't even think about it at all. I know there are parents that want there kids to make there own decision about things like this, so if you ask them maybe they will say, "YES". But if they say, "NO" don't dwell on it to much, just wait tell your 18.

What does your parents think about you piercings?
My mom doesn't like piercings or tattoos for that matter. She doesn't understand why people get them or even like them. So for me she thinks i went to far and i shouldn't get any more.
Advice:
Piercing and to get them or not to get them is all based on personal preference, Some people are going to like them on you and some people are going to look at you like your crazy. But just remember you got them for you!

Who inspired you to get interested in piercings?
Know one in particular, i am a very open minded person and i love the arts. So when i think of piercings, its my accessories a way of expressing myself. Some people buy bags and watches, i get wholes in my body.
Advice:
DO IT FOR YOU! This is basically the best advice i could ever give you. Get your piercing done for you, don't get it because you think it will make you cooler or fit in with a different social group. Git it because you love it and can't live without it. Just because it looked nice on her doesn't mean it will look the same way on you.

How did you care for your piercings?
I will be going into more detail when i show you my piercings but basically i cleaned them, rotated them and made sure they were safe.
Advice:
Piercings come with a lot of care and respectability. Remember this is a fresh wound and you have to keep it clean, so it doesn't get infected. Over cleaning can dry out the area and cause problems too. Also never take out your piercing early, always wait tell its fully healed.

Did you know anything about the piercing before you got it done?
Yes! I feel like i new a lot of what to expect and what i needed because i did my research online. I basically did what your doing now, seeing what people had to say about it from experience or professional work. Always stay ahead of the game.
Advice:
Look at YouTube Videos, search google and ask people why has the piercing already. This will help you gain the information you will be needing. Also remember ever piercing place has there own way of doing things when it comes to cleaning. So really read that info paper they give you.

Does getting a piercing hurt?
For myself my piercing didn't hurt, they were very fast and easy.
Advice:
Everyone has there own pain tolerance and there own definition of hurt. So yes, the piercing you want can possibly hurt or it could go smoothly.

I don't know what side i want to get my piercing on, how did you choose?
I went with whatever side i felt look good on me. So if the was the right side then i got it there.
Advice:
Don't let peoples beliefs of side meanings discourage you on what side you want our piercing on. Remember you are going this for you, not for anyone else.

Where did you get your piercings done at?
Ive been to a lot of different places like tattoo piercing parlors, Clair's, Piercing Pagoda. 
Advice:
There are 3 types of places you can go to. They are store piercing places like Claire's, icing and piercing pagoda. Tattoo piercing parlors... basically a tattoo places that does piercings too and there is at home/ friends house. I suggest you always go to a tattoo parlor, they have a licence and know what they are doing.

Hello my fellow shy children! I am back and back for good. If you are new to fashionshychild.com my name is Cortney and this is my blog. I have recently moved an hour and some from where i used to live, so getting settled in took some time.

But that being said, here is an Outfit of the day post. I am wearing a forever21 plus size top that i did buy at the forever21 store, a long with the jeans i am wearing.

Gillette Venus: Snap with Embrace Review

influ5 Hello my fellow shy children!
A couple of weeks ago i receive this Gillette Venus Snap with Embrace razor, complimentary of Influnster.com to test out. I have been using it very often, since i was in the process of moving. Therefor i can give you my very honest opinion, if you have been wanting to try it out.
That being said, in this review i will be covering these Points: Packaging, Product review (with Pros & Cons), and My Final Thoughts. So lets get started :)

influ1 influ2 influ3 influ4

Packaging: Opening the box Influenster sent me, everything was packaged nicely. The box has the Gillette Venus snap with embrace razor in it (packaging in its original new packaging), a Gillette Venus coupon book that contained one coupon and other blades they carry and Influenster's box info post card.

Product Review: When you have the packaged product in your hand and looking at it, it looks like your mini razor would be the image you see. But that is not the case, your razor is actually inside that cute little blue caring case. Opening up the case is really easy but that being said your razor is very secure. There is a little snap part inside the holds your razor in place. When you take out the razor you will notice how light and small it is. to me its completely adorable.
The razor does have 5 blades and two moisture strips. All you have to do is wet the razor and shave. I personally like to wet the area and then the razor before shaving. Here is a video tutorial :). No shaving cream is needed and i think that's a plus. Also When you shave, you will not feel a thing. I didn't feel the blades or any pulling of hair...Nothing! But i had really smooth skin and it was shiny, so this razor gives a really close shave.
If i didn't mention it before, this razor was promoted and meant to be used as an on the go, put in your beach bag/suit case type of thing. That's great in all but i think this razor would be really great for pre-teens and teens.
I did look up this product to see how much it would cost you all to but it and its about $10 USD at Target. That's not the bad compared to the replacement blades that run about $16 USD (4-count package). That's just two high for even me! So coupons will be needed to get that price down.

Pros: 5 blades, wet n shave, compact, light weight, durable, cute, no pull or tug, cant feel a thing, travel case
Cons: replacement blades are high in price

My Final Thoughts: I suggest everyone gives this product a try, even pre-teens that are shaving. I can not state enough how easy this product is to use and how you wont feel a thing.  If you are traveling, going to the beach/poor or even play a summer sport this would be perfect to pack with you. If price is a problem remember their are coupons out there. Put that with a sale and your winning :)
