Upcycled Day: 2


Sometimes in life there are projects that give you scraps of leather and you just can't seem to part away from them. Then years later you find the perfect little project for that tiny scrap of leather you held on to so dearly.


For Day two of the Upcycled challenge I decided to make my daughter a pair of leather shoes. First time ever sewing with leather and making baby shoes. So I knew this would be a trial and error therefore I wasn't expecting them to come out perfect.


Here are the pattern pieces but let me tell you in the end there were a few modifications made.


Not bad for being a first time pair. I loved the idea of sewing shoes for my daughter considering it has become difficult finding a wide range of colors. Since pink shoes are not my number one choice.


Not sure if it's the fact the leather had been folded and tucked away for years or one shoe came out wider then the other lol.
I definitely learned a lot from making these pair and hope my second pair will come out perfect. Note to self: buy an actual leather needle and take your time!!! My daughter didn't seem to mind them but I feel like she will outgrow them like tomorrow. For sure I have to make them longer to accommodate her growing feet. Here she is modeling her handmade shoes. Tune in for tomorrow for yet another upcycled design.

 she's testing the fit lol

 She has the chunkiest feet lol.

Very curious about her new kicks.

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.

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 Organics   All 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. Whipped Citrus Antioxidant Cleanser: This pH
