Venus Snap Razor Review

Hey friends!

I know it’s been forever since I’ve blogged, and I’m going to try to change that. In the meantime, this post is brought to you by Influenster and Gillette Venus (all opinions are completely mine, though)!

What is Influenster, you may ask? Well, it’s a pretty awesome online program that will send you products for free to try out, review, and share about on social media. I get free stuff, the company gets word-of-mouth promotion, and everyone’s happy.

Anyways, I received the Venus Snap razor in the mail the other day compliments of Venus and Influenster.

Venus Snap Razor

My Venus Snap, fresh outta the mailbox.

I  tested out the Snap last weekend while traveling for my best friend’s wedding that I was in. It was nice to just toss the little blue case inside my bag – so cute and compact. I used it in the shower, but it would be easy to use it on the go if you realize you miss a spot!

It’s a little weird using such a small handle on a razor to shave, but the grip is squishy and comfortable, and it actually works super well. The package just tells you to wet the blades, and you’re good to go.

I also love that it uses Venus blades so I can keep reusing it. The case is also nice and has a vent so it can dry inside.

Honestly, my favorite thing about this is that it was free. I probably wouldn’t have bought it otherwise since it’s pricey ($9.47) for such a small razor. But now that I have it, I’ll definitely put it to good use! I may even consider switching to venus from now on… the disposables I use aren’t that great. Thanks Influenster and Venus!

my humble abode

Living in an on-campus apartment this year has been so much fun! My roommates and I decided on a travel theme since we’ve all acquired different decor from our adventures overseas. It’s been a little challenging to make the most of a small amount of space, but we’re making it work. Here’s a little peek into apartment life in Kent 207!

I’m Back!

Hey everyone!

Well, I made it back to the States last week and had a little chance to recover from the jet lag. What an amazing trip we had! I don’t even want to know how many photos I took – but all I can say is that everything completely exceeded my expectations. I loved so much about this trip, but to spare you all the details, my top 3 things were getting to see Johanna and meet her family in Freiburg, hiking by the Matterhorn in Switzerland and sketching by the Seine on the Ilé de Louis in Paris.

Off to Germany!

I’m Germany-bound! My senior year of high school, our family hosted Johanna as an exchange student, and I always hoped I’d get to visit my German sister someday. So finally, Mom, Dad, and I are headed to her hometown of Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany! We have some day trips planned to Colmar, France, Lucerne, Switzerland, Neuschwanstein Castle, and a few other places. At the end of our trip we’re taking the train to Paris and staying three days at their timeshare, and to cap things off, we have an 18-hour layover stay in Dublin. Yep, this is gonna be awesome. I haven’t gotten to explore Europe much, and I’m so thankful for the opportunity to do that with a family that I know and love!

So excited to see this sweet girl again!
