Upcycled Day: 7


All good things must come to an end! It's day seven, of kid's clothes week upcycled challenge. I had  a blast tearing up old clothes and giving them a fresh breath of air. By all means this was extremely challenging because I am ME; I tend to have an emotional connection with my clothes, I have been in denial that  my style had changed, and talk about having the guts to tear them apart. Hey, at least I kept my clothes in the family! ;-) Hope you all enjoyed my creations as much as I enjoyed making them. Alright, let's get down to business, going into this challenge, one of the things I really wanted to transform was a mens shirt into something amazing. So I did what any lovely wife would do, I grabbed one of my husbands old mens shirt. I honestly, had no idea what I would do! I was having designer's block! Ever had one of those? Let me tell you they are the worst. Fast, forward six days later, it came to me! The mens shirt had pin stripes, which meant I could play with directional stripes. The front bodice would have a chevron effect, the back would be kept as is along with the buttons. The skirt portion would have horizontal stripes and inverted pleats.



Here is the before.

My little model wasn't being too cooperative, I was only able to capture two pictures a bit blurry but you get to see how the dress looked on her.

This concludes Kids Clothes Week upcycled challenge! I loved the challenge it pushed me to do something different. Now I have a less clutter up closet and she has new/old clothes. It's a win win! Which upcycled garment was your favorite?

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.
