When Snapmade.com gave me the chance to try some items from their site, I hopped at the chance. SnapMade is an online company that customers can create and customize their own products, as well as personalize gifts. You can choose from a large variety of items such as t-shirts, pillows, i-phone cases, candles, pet items and much more.

I could have chosen to customize any product that I wanted on the website but I choose to customize a t shirt and a black long sleeve shirt. It took me a little while to really decide what I wanted. SnapMade offered a lot of different designs as well as words and fonts that anyone can choose from. You can either design your items from the front or the back or even both, if that's what you choose. I chose to deign only the front of my shirts. I  personalized the shirts with designs that I found just browsing the internet. I do advise that if you choose this option, make sure that the background of the image is transparent.  For the short sleeve t shirt I decided on a 'Celfie Paris' design and for the Long Sleeve T-Shirt, I chose a tribal YSL logo.

Overall, I was surprised with the quality of the shirts, as well as the quality of the deigns.I got my shirt in a size XL fitted, it fits pretty well. I will be doing a separate post of how I styled both of the shirts, so you can look of for that. What I like most about SnapMade is that, their items are priced reasonably and they have a great amount of designs you can choose from to customize anything you want. The items impressed me so much, I will definitely be customizing shirts for my graduation.

SnapMade also did an awesome job with the shipping time frame, being that the shirt was customized; it took less than two weeks to arrive from the order date. Which is very impressive. SnapMade currently has a deal if you buy one, you get the other 50% off using the code VALENTINE50. This is great for all the couples out there and for my single people... with pets as well (lol). 

Have a great weekend and have you shopped SnapMade before?

Since I went natural...again, I've been trying a variety of new products on my hair. Some of them are misses and then we have those that are just magical; and I have found a new magical product, InstaNatural's Argan Oil Hair Mask! The InstaNatural team was kind enough to send me a few products from their line and today I'm going to tell you about their Argan Oil Hair Mask.

If you know anything about my hair routine, it's that it is hugely based on Argan Oil. Argan Oil is the HOLY grail staple of my hair routine. When I read that this hair mask has Argan Oil and other rich oils such as Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and Avocado Oil, I was sold. InstaNatural's Argan Oil Hair Mask is a deep conditioning treatment that was designed to help restore dry and damaged strands into soft, shiny, healthy hair. Besides having rich oils in their ingredients its also has Japanese Green Tea and Vitamin B5. Not only does this hair mask deep conditions it also helps to strengthen hair and serves to protect against heat damage.

Happy New Year!!!!! Can you still say that two weeks after New Year's Day? None the less, I am so happy that we all made to the new year and you know that old saying "New Year, new me." well in this case I actually mean it. You are gonna see posts every week from me this year. I know that's a hard commitment but for you guys, it's a commitment I have to keep. Starting off the new year right, Saga of a Fatshionista got a blog face lift, I hope you like the new look of the blog; it's about time SOAF got a new layout. Also, I know that the Face Time series was a hit last year, so I decided to start of the new year with it. I decided to go for natural brown look.
