Meet Chasity Shyenne. She is a fashion model, entrepreneur and influencer. On top of all this, she has created her own Youtube channel. where she films beauty and lifestyle videos. I got the chance to do a little Q&A with her, and I recommend everyone to check out her channel!

1) What inspired you to start a YouTube channel?

What inspired me to start my own YouTube was watching my favorite YouTuber Bethany Mota. She really got me inspired of making home videos and seeing that YouTube helped her with her own first clothing line by partnering with Aeropostale made me want to really start my own channel!

2) If someone could only watch one of your videos, which one would it be and why? 

I would pick the mixed girl tag video just because I am mix with black and white and a lot of people just don’t understand what us mix kids go through we can’t decide on just which side to stand up for because both of our parents are different race and for example, filling out a job application, they don’t have mixed as an option. They have black or white, so which one do you pick? If I picked white, they are going to expect to see a fully white women or if I picked black, they are going to expect to see a fully darker skin complexion not a mix girl with hazel eyes and curly hair. The struggle is real.

Check out her video here:


3) Describe your style in three words.

Comfy, fashionable, outgoing

4) I loved your wishlist video. What’s on your summer/fall wishlist right now? 

My summer and fall wishlist is to enjoy the outdoors more because nature is really pretty! Also changing up my style for each of the season.

5) What is your life motto? 

My life motto is a little quote from a Chris Brown song that I always use. “ I work too hard to be balling on a budget.” I know I’m not rich, but I love nice things so I shouldn’t have to dream about wanting those things when I put a lot of my energy into my job and not rewarding myself afterwards.

Meet Ruthy Gascot:

Having been born and raised in Brooklyn, New York has given me the opportunity to mix styles. When we think of New York City, we automatically think of Manhattan, but have you heard Brooklyn is the new Manhattan? Brooklyn is a diamond in the rough and that’s how I like to think in regards to my style. Much of my style is influenced by my mother who is my #1 fashion icon and the streets of Brooklyn. I like to hide behind clothes and show my self with style. Spread love is the Brooklyn way.

1) Describe your style in three words

Short, sweet, shy

2) What’s your ideal summer vacay?

Sipping piña colada by a pool

3) What’s your typical coffee order?  

Light and sweet

4) Why is fashion important to you?

Fashion is important to me because I can express myself through my wardrobe when I can’t find the words.

5) What’s your fashion motto?

Break the rules. If you feel happy and confident, it will show through your energy and attitude.

Quote of the Day

Too many times in life, people put their happiness on a pedestal. They say “Once, I get through A, B, and C, I’ll be happy.” Others do it without realizing. They can’t wait until the weekend. They say “I can’t wait to leave this job, or this school,” or whatever stage they’re trying to surpass. Part of success and happiness is the journey that leads up to it. People spend too much time focusing on the future to truly appreciate the present. Life is too short to be taken so seriously, so remember to appreciate the little moments in each day.

The Bachelorette Review: The Tia Tea

It happens every season. I skip a recap or two because I get bored with the season. However, the hometown date was actually pretty good considering it’s usually really boring. Here are my thoughts on each one, along with what I thought about Tia coming back to talk to Becca about Colton.

Garrett: Garrett and Becca had such a great hometown. It felt the most effortless and relaxed of the bunch of hometown dates. I think we got some more insight from the family, and it almost made me feel a little bit better about Garrett’s story about his ex wife since it aligns a lot with his family’s. My thing is, I just can’t see Becca saying goodbye to Garrett. When she called Jason and Blake first, I knew it couldn’t possibly be Garrett.

Blake: Blake reminds me so much of Nick from Andi’s season, and I can totally see him having a very emotional exit if Becca doesn’t choose him. Out of all the guys, he seems the most into her and the most likely to be completely shattered if Becca doesn’t pick him. Also as a side note, Blake had a very dramatic high school life. Between the affair with his mom and the shooting, he had it rough as a teenager.

Jason: When the season started, I had a crush on Jason that none of my friends understood because he was barely featured. Now, everyone gets why he’s my season crush. He’s very real and goofy, and then he says things to Becca that makes me swoon. I feel like he’s make a great Bachelor and maybe even a different type than we’re used to. Arie, Nick, Chris and Ben were descent, but they’ve all been pretty serious. Jason would be funny and charismatic, which is something we haven’t seen in a while. His family seems awesome, and I loved how much love there was between his brother and husband. Side Note* Have we ever seen a gay couple on the show?

Colton: I listened to the Almost Famous Podcast today, and I really feel bad for being down on Colton all season. He was pretty transparent about his relationship with Tia and Becca on the podcast, and I think the show made him look shadier than he actually is. His dad was actually the best with questions in my opinion during the hometown. He knows it was hard for Colton to open up, so it was nice for him to give it back by asking about Arie.

Other Thoughts:

  • I can see where Tia was coming from. She wanted to be calm and cool about the situation with Colton, but she finally had to have her peace. I have a hard time defending her though because I really didn’t like her throwing Bekah M. under the bus last season, along with speaking poorly about Kendall. So when she did this to Becca, it made me feel so badly for Becca. That being said, Tia is getting a lot of hate on social media, and people need to chill out. Colton is going to paradise. Becca is engaged. No need for hate.
  • So that’s my recap. I’m worried for Blake. Apologetic toward Colton. Still Obsessed with Jason, and happy for Garrett….because he’s probably engaged to Becca.

Wedding Jumpsuit OOTD

This is an outfit I wore for a wedding. This is a jumpsuit from H&M that I got on sale for $25.00. This is a length I’ve never worn before, and the ruffle top is very bold, so I was hesitant to wear something like this, but it definitely stood out in a sea of dresses.

I used to be so worried about taking risks with fashion and “standing out too much” but if you love what you’re wearing and own your look, then rock your outfit with confidence. I’ve learned over the years that if you act unphased by people’s opinions, that you can truly be yourself.

Summer Steals & Daisy Detailing

Here’s a summery shirt I wore the other day. It’s a simple tie button up with a polka dot and daisy print, and it was only $7 from H&M. I’m really loving these lightweight button up tops for the summer, especially the shorts sleeves cuffed blouses I’ve been seeing everywhere. You can wear them casually with ripped denim shorts or dress it up with a pair of low rise trousers.
