November (2016) Product Review

Winter is coming.

Hey guys, Jaceyon here with another review! I have a really great product that I think you’ll find to be both fashionable and functional this winter season.This winter, my favorite seasonal item has got to be my new scarf: the Scoodie Black and White Plaid with Hoodie.

Here’s a peek at the scoodie I copped in a simalar colorway!

I love everything about this accessory.

It’s thick and keeps me warm during the cold weather. Not forgetting it’s very stylish and I got it at a great price via karmaloop.com. My decision to purchase this scarf came after the price of the item, decreased from $29.00 US to $16.00 US.

The scarf can also be tied and worn in any way desired, because of the length of the scarf. As a result of the color of my scarf it goes good with most all attire.

Scoddie in Black and White plaid

What I like most about the scoodie scarf, is that it’s versatile and doesn’t only function as a scarf. But, it can be transformed into a hoodie, and a scarf with pockets for your own style and convenience. Because of the fear I have of my scoodie scarf getting damaged, in the event that my scarf is soiled.

I usually use a piece of cotton, with some gain detergent applied onto the cotton and just dab the soiled area. After I use another clean peace of cotton I then apply water to the cotton. Dabbing the soiled area, in an attempt to remove the color of the detergent.

When I was getting my scarf I came across the Red & Black Scoodie, Plaid Scarf whilst exploring my purchasing options. I observed the Red & Black Scarf for US $29 that I highly recommend, since it should be a lot harder to get soiled than the Black & White.

On Monday 28th January, 2013 I had the pleasure of getting acquainted and conducting an interview with Karlie McKinnon, a classmate of my Media Writing Class in the Elizabeth Hall Building, Room 410. As we sat down for approximately 50 minutes  face to face conversing, I got the opportunity of getting to know more than what reaches the average eye on a daily basis, of who is Karlie!  Karlie a Utan born, adventurous in her girl days would either be building forts, riding her bicycle with the boys  or writing songs in her bedroom. Grew up in Kaysville that she loves, because it’s close to the city and feels like a small town. She is a family oriented individual, living with her parents and believes that family connections are important. Annually in the summer time she and her family take a trip to the West Coast. Karlie is the youngest out of her 2 brothers and older sister. While attending Davis High School, she was never the type that was popular but had allot of friends and attended advance placement classes along with religious studies. Presently Karlie is a receptionist at a medical clinic and is also a student at Weber State University in her Junior year, pursuing  a Bachelors Of Arts in Electronic Media, and was driven towards this area of study as a result of it being one that is time efficient, easy to be acquired and marketable. Upon obtaining her degree it’s her endeavor of seeking a job, that would enable her the opportunity of  being able to travel around the world. During, her spare time Karlie ingulf herself into music of which she is passionate about, along with exploring her imagination by creating art pieces. When it comes to eating, Karlie’s favorite dish is Vietnamese. Folk, pop and rock are also her favorite genres of music, she considers herself an indie music lover. She sings, plays the guitar and piano. When asked what type of individual she would describe herself as? With a charming smile on her face Karlie responded, “I try to be kind and aware of those around me, with the willingness to help those in need.” “I would like to be known for the good that I have done, when I die.”
