The Update + Firmoo Review

Thursday, April 2, 2015

Mic check! Check 1 - check - check - check? Anyone there?

Hi friends! It's so nice to be back on the blog and I hope to be posting more frequently by the end of May. Luckily I met Dannie from Dannie Dan-Irabor Photography over Spring Break, and we teamed up to bring you this post featuring glasses from Firmoo and what's new with Chanel.

I feel like it's been forever, and I guess it has been so where do I start? Well, how was my Spring break for starters? It was relaxing and nice overall. I made some Caramel Flan lattes, chauffeured my NYC family, watched my fair share of The Middle,  I created a brand merchandising and marketing package for JMC/updated the site, and I finally had some time to review these glasses Firmoo sent me ages ago.

What else? Well other than the brand merchandising package I created, which I will share on the site soon- I've been obsessed with Kintsugi by Death Cab For Cutie. I'll also be 20 in two weeks which is kind of scary but exciting. I've been so blessed with so many exciting new things for Je M'appelle Chanel. It's crazy to think how much it has grown in the past year- I was recently invited and accepted into the Vogue Influencer Network!

Today I'm excited to be reviewing glasses that Firmoo sent me. I remember last January I finally got my first pair of glasses and for some reason, it was such a difficult process. I knew what frames I wanted, but I wanted the pair to have longevity so I was focused on a designer and a style I'd like for my college years (I went with MBMJ in case you were curious). However, when Firmoo reached out to me and asked me to choose a pair the decision couldn't have been any easier. Cat eye glasses were calling my name which is why I chose this pair.
Although I wish the bridge was a bit larger/longer on the glasses and they had a gloss finish instead of a matte finish I really love this pair. The glasses also came with a vintage looking hard case. I am the champion of breaking Ray-Bans so this was a major plus for me. I use the hard case for my glasses which I keep in my backpack. Overall, I really like the look of these I think they make me look quite bookish in a vintage way. What do you think? Is there a formula for finding glasses that I don't know about?
To offset my "bookish" look I had to finally wear one of these Rag & Bone-esque v-neck varsity sweaters. I really love the clean aesthetic and simplicity. I think the sweater really fits into my day to day look. I really like that the sweater is a chic statement on its own, you can keep everything else simple.

Anyways, I hope y'all have a fantastic April and celebrate each day as it gets warmer and warmer with iced coffees and confetti in your hair! I'll see you in May ;)

The hard part about college and often life is that you have to say goodbye to those you love most. However there is almost always an upside to goodbyes. For me the upside is traveling, and seeing the incredible places the world has to offer with the ones whom I love most.

Hey 2015!

I'm taking strides into 2015 with a big, grateful, open heart. 2014 was too good to me. Although I wish I had pushed myself to write more blog posts, take more Instax photos, and get more cups of coffee with the people I love most- I truly am content. 2014 was a great year, and towards the end it became pretty busy.
