Polyvore Gone Never to return again... Here are some alternatives!

Hello everyone,
It's ya girl Mila Najah I am on a rant.
I lost all my blog photos and creations. My favorite fashion platform Polyvore has been changed to a company called Ssense. Polyvore is where I make all my lookbooks and most of my post. I don't know who they are or what they do. I am extremely unhappy with their decision even more so the way it was done.

Let me tell you!


Well, I started my daily routine and it was time for content for this blog. So, I went to create some Spring and summer. Polyvore is an app used by millions of fashion enthusiast, bloggers, designers, stylist and content creators. At first, I tried opening the Polyvore app a few times, I'm thinking 'hmm maybe it's down for maintenance. I tried the next day and I kept getting something that says SSense, then I went to the google search app and searched 'what happened to Polyvore?...same thing. Next, I search what happened to Polyvore and there it was "Polyvore users protest" apparently Polyvore has been purchased by the Montreal-based company Ssense. I'm not sure what they really do, because their website isn't very user-friendly. Polyvore There are millions of Polyvore users this was not cool at all

I love creating sets, for fun and for work. It’s how I express myself and put together looks I would wear or just fun themed looks. I even have a Polyvore Pinterest page. I think I deleted it once I knew what happened. Polyvore users were very talented artist who inspired one another as well as their own audiences and fans. I can't believe you Polyvore

So anyways,

I'll stop ranting now... so that's my problem, thankfully I'm a problem-solver and I found solutions. Here's what I found in my research. 

I FOUND POLYVORE ALTERNATIVES/REPLACEMENT.

for now anyways , I found a few sites and have already registered with two that allowed me to upload my polyvore sets that I was able to download from the polyvore site. I'm going to have to re-add the photos to each blogpost one by one.

These apps are similar to Polyvore but not quite there yet, these were not created to replace Polyvore. being as Polyvore was 10 years old and these are startups with a year or less so they are not as advanced.


here are a few options: 

I found a few, many of which seem to be brand new or in Japenese. I'm still testing all of these and will update. 

Pro's easy to use, polyvore upload, app available
 Cons: quality not the same or as good as Polyvore, There aren't many stores in their search, but there are some really cute finds.

trendme:  Brand new app still coming, 5 languages

 My fave and the most interesting one is ShopLook (click to check them out). No app yet!  I have a lot of faith that they canill the polyvore  void.They're willing to add as many similar Polyvore features as possible. we love and miss and to make it most like our Polyvore home as possible. I hope they bring as many features while keeping their own identity.

An interesting thing they offer is that you get paid for creating outfits. A dream come true! the founder’s idea was to provide a platform where we can earn commisions for creating sets. After all it is our time, skill, and creativity that goes into these sets.

 Update I retreived my sets and I'm uploading to my old post what I have and what ever I don't I'll recreate with updated products.


If you have tried any of these or have any other apps or tips, please share... thanks!

Spring Quick Boost Fit Tips!

Did you know that proper diet and exercise along with the proper water intake will strengthen your immune systems; fight off cancers, fibroids, and other diseases by flushing out toxins from the meats, dairy, and GMOs.



If you’re like me, it’s not always easy to get started working out or consistently eating right and taking supplements. I’m learning consistency is key not only in fitness but everything we do!





Tips:

My fit tips are simple:

1: start with a detox. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on a detox system. I have a tip that helped me save a ton of money and got rid of my parasites, I didn’t know I had.


A Healthy diet helps alkalize the body and restore all the missing nutrients.

2.buy healthy foods that you like. Salad, carrots, celery. Buy organic if you can, it also tastes better and helps to Alkalize the body. Make sure you have a cheat day it will help you be consistent. Just think, you’re working toward eating what you’ve been craving all week. If you’re attending an event, let that be your cheat. Only cheat once a week, mmm😋enjoy it... but in moderation.



There's nothing wrong with indulging on cheat day, otherwise what's the purpose?. However, I find that some cheat days I opt. for still a healthier version of decadence.


3: Remember water, water, water. Increase your water intake at least 64 oz a day. Our bodies are made of about 76% water 💧 that’s more than half of everything else we operate off, which means we cannot operate properly without it. Stay away from water that is like tap water, which could do more harm than good. 

4: work out in cute, bright, colorful clothing or all black fitness wear! Tops with sassy sayings are very motivational as it relates to you!


5: Meditate, pray, listen to music, say affirmations over hypnosis music, listen to gospel sermon. whatever you need to do to create serenity, peace, and balance in your life. a walk on a quiet park trail, a prayer closet or room. 



 only you can create the peace you desire.



Serenity

Killer looks and tips to get you Fit & Fab!



Motivation: Out with the Old 


this is what I workout in along add some black fitness leggings and black yoga pant. That's it smh. :(

Things to motivate me?
 A photo or photos of a body or shape I want on my fitness area wall or in my bedroom/bathroom or wherever I need to be able to see it. 

Of course, cute fitness 💪 clothes motivate me to look and feel great in them. Which brings me to this post. if your workout gear is making you slack, then go out and by a new one.cute bright, bold prints, and or all black can help you look great at the gym.

Studies show that what you wear effects your mood. hence why a cute gym outfit can motivate you... also prints on top or bottom can accentuate that body part. if you want your breast to appear larger or proportionate to a larger bottom or your lower body to look smaller wear solid bottoms and a printed top.



In with the new!










Alo high waisted wet look legging / The Upside colorful sports bra / White colour shoes / Nike Women's Aura Print Club Training Bag Travel bag, $85 / Collection XIIX notch ball cap





This next look can be worn at the gym, or switch up the pants for some stretching and toning with Yoga. Fact : Did you know that Yoga not only lengthens and loosens your body but I certain poses are used in methods of increasing hips and buttocks. If you’d like to learn more comment below... I’ll
share some tips.

Winter make up WOC

This look created with ipsy January bag!
follow me on Instagram to get the fill 

People ask me all the time “is if he worth it “ My answer is always yes!  See you three go on my skin looks so great they send me  moisturizing in skin tightening mask.   They help prep my skin for the quality make up products that Ipsy sends.

Check out photos on Instagram and Facebook 
@milanajah






What’s in the bag?

Real chemistry- Fresh start foaming cleanser
Leaves skin soft and clean with no residue or tight-dry soap feeling, 

Lue Skin-Balance Hydrating and calming Serum this serum is thin and very water based and certainly hydrating.


NYX- Lip-lingerie in the shade ‘Beautymark’ this is a nude brown matte shade that goes on feeling creamy and moist,  then dries to a matte finish. This color could look right with the right make up but for my skin tone it kind of blended in which is why I change the shade to a wine berry color on my photos on Instagram.

dirty little secret cosmetics- eyeshadow on the shade ‘Sangria’This is the perfect shape for our skin women and I believe it would look beautiful on any skin tone. I’ve been looking for this shade all winter is the perfect fall winter make up shade. The consistency is pigmented and long-lasting .

City Color cosmetics- Contour Palette this is not bad... the highlighter shows up on me.  I prefer champagne or rose gold Highlighter on me I believe his highlighter would look great on lighter skin tones.
