About Me

Hello everyone,
So the other day, I realized that I haven’t properly introduced myself here at the blog.
My name is Paulette.
Always being interested in art, I would entertain myself by illustrating, drawing, and writing my own comics. I loved the idea of creating things out of nothing, at times being resourceful was my only option, possibilities can be endless when you have a Big imagination! And lets not forget the old saying, ‘Necessity is the mother of inventions.”
But sewing, now that, that was in my heart, you can say that sewing was in my blood, both my mother and grandmother were seamstress for many years. I remember sitting beside them wanting to learn their techniques and bugging them to let me have a go at it. I still remember how as a young child I would design my Barbie clothes from scraps of old clothing, and old socks. When I became a teen I wanted to be unique and trendy, therefore I began to modify my t-shirts and I would refashion my clothing. After graduating high school I enrolled into Phoenix College to study Fashion Design to pursue my dream.
In 2009 I presented a dress for the Heart of Fashion, and was featured in the PC Bear blog. ( (I will post about this adventure soon)

By 2010 I earned my Associates Degree in Applied Science for Fashion Design. Quite frankly, as many recent grads find themselves, I myself didn't know where to go from here…
I initially wanted to work for an apparel company or for an independent designer. At this point in my life I was hungry for knowledge and wanted to get the feel for what the fashion world was truly about. Considering I lived in Phoenix, definitely not the Fashion Capitol of anywhere, things were not looking so good. I knew that moving was an option but at the same time I felt like I had a better shot here in Phoenix. Not only that I have the most supportive fiancé and family members who truly believe in me and have kept me going and pushing me to fully reach my potential. That’s when I realized that I had to make a name for myself right here where I was and Lollipop Couture was born.
I started expanding my portfolio by working on mini collections and making custom made garments.

Being a DIY type Gal, I felt an incredible amount of stress as I found myself wearing all types of hats ( like the recent post office commercial) from web developer, graphic designer, photographer, etc and all of this while working on my collections. It has not been an easy journey, but I am wiling and determined to go after my dream.
So this blog is intended to document my ongoing journey as a Fashion Designer. I will document the good, the bad, give you Fashion advice and share interesting things I may come across. Also, I plan to give you a glimpse of “Behind the Seams” how it all goes down, as well as let you get inside my head and read my thoughts in “Diary of a Fashion Designer.” So welcome to my journey and hope you enjoy every bit of it!!!

Women's Watches: Where to Shop for Unique Timepieces

Tick tock, tick tock. Time is slowly creeping up and I'm making sure to make the most out of it. As a mommy of two, I stop and stare at my two beautiful daughters I began to reminisce on the day they were both born. Oh such tiny little babies they were and all I can think is poof they've grown in a blink of an eye. I am soaking up every moment and making memories with them because I want them to always remember all the good TIMES we've experienced.

Boxy Charm/February Unboxing+Review

It's BoxyMail Time, this month's theme is Galaxy Glow. It is definitely giving me all the Space Jams vibes. If you aren't familiar with BOXYCHARM it is a beauty subscription for $21 a month. Usually you get 5-6 full size products! Based on the theme I thought that the products were going to be vibrant, glowy, or have a neon effect. There were so many variations on their IG that I was not sure if I was going to like this month's box. The five items that were included in my box were a highlighter palette, shimmer veil, eye pencil, glitter, and trio brush set.  (Disclaimer: this review is NOT sponsored by BOXYCHARM, I bought this with my own money, all opinions are mine. I'm sharing because "Sharing is Caring.") NAKED COSMETICS Holographic Highlighter Palette retails $39.99 This palette comes with six stunning holographic shades.
