Little Black Dress Challenge

Hi guys, so I wasn't going to do this but, I must share with you all the ups and downs of the fashion world. So last week Phoenix Fashion Week announced their third annual Little Black Dress Challenge sponsered by the Art Institute of Phoenix. The challenge was to sketch a little black dress it could be short or a gown, and people vote via social media for the top four then you move on to the second round where you actually desing the drsess. On October you showcase the dess on Phoenix fashion week the guest will vote once again and the first prize winner wins $1000 and the runner up wins $500.  I was thrilled to once again try you see last year I tried out for it but I never blogged about it because I was sad I didn't make it to the top four.


So few hours ago they announced the top ten via FaceBook, and what do you know, once again I did not make it :-( I'm an emotional mess I must confess, I just don't know where I've gone wrong. I see the finalist and I'm sorry to say but some of them are not that great. I know I know I should suck it up and move on but I just thought I'd vent here on my blog! Anywho, congrats to those who made it I'm happy for you all. (Here's a link of those who made it if your intrested in seeing http://on.fb.me/1ptP72j )
Here is the original sketch I submitted to them, perhaps someday I will design it in real life.





Thanks for your support.

Keep Me Safe Organics / Skin Care Review

Hello darlings, today I have a beauty product review from Keep Me Safe Organics!

The company carries organic, toxic free beauty and skincare products. I believe that taking care of your face is important since it is the first thing everyone sees so make it a lasting impression. I'll be reviewing their skincare line, which are the facial cleanser, facial toner, facial moisturizer, serum, and rejuvenating glacier mud mask. (Disclosure, all products provided by Keep Me Safe OrganicsAll my opinions are mine and I'm keeping it 100%.)
In order to give you my honest opinion, I tested the products for three days and made a video documenting my results after using all the products. I will post the video below. Let's talk about my skin issues before using the products; I suffered from dry flaky skin, red blotchy patches on my cheeks and of course acne. I'll be reviewing each item and tell you a bit more about them.

If you have been following my blog for a while then you might remember me talking about Phoenix Fashion Week. Each year they host a challenge, which consist of illustrating your perfect little black dress. They choose the top four illustrations which then you get to bring to life. In which the designers showcase it in Phoenix Fashion Week's annual fashion show. This year they had a completely different challenge.
