Boxy Charm / September Beauty Box

I'm excited to say that I'm officially a Boxy Charmer!! I know what you're thinking I've gone addicted with subscription boxes and what not. (DON'T JUDGE ME Lol) Let me just tell you that out of all the subscription boxes this one out beats all of them!
If you aren't familiar on how it works let me give you a quick run through. Boxy Charm is a beauty box subscription you pay $21 a month. They put together some of the most TRENDIEST, HIGHEND makeup for YOU usually the box contains 4-5 FULL size beauty products. Usually every Charmer receives 3 of the same items in their boxes and the other items are a complete surprise to you. After you subscribe you create a profile and answer some simple questions my guess is they will tailor the box to YOU. After, seeing their previous boxes I was blown away on how they manage to get top notch beauty products for you to try out! So if you are wanting to try some high-end beauty products and are on a budget then this box is MUST! Their boxes usually retail at $100+ and you are getting this for only $21, and if you are looking into saving a few more bucks then you might want to consider looking into their subscription plans.
Now that we got that out of the way, this months theme was Boxie Badie. This best describes a charmer who is confident, loves makeup, and is all about  empowering other baddies. I absolutely love their theme, it great when women empower other women. If you follow Boxy Charm's IG then you already know some of this months sneak peeks which are the Soiree Diaries eyeshadow palette by PUR Cosmetics, Colourpop Ultra Satin Lippies, and an eyebrow pencil in the shade Lingering or Spiked by Mac Cosmetics. They also mentioned that this month's box they are including SIX full size items instead of your usual 5! Let the unboxing begin!! My other three items are: loose blush by Studio Makeup, brush duo by Bodyography, and hair mask by Briogeo. Below I'll talk more about each product, do a mini review, and swatches. (Disclaimer: this review is NOT sponsored by Boxy Charm, I bought this with my own money, all opinions are mine. I'm sharing because "Sharing is Caring.")

I'm pretty excited about the Soiree Diaries Eye Shadow since they have colors that I gravitate towards. This will probably end up being my go to fall palette. I am loving the Colourpop lippies I already own a few others that I will be posting a review soon so be on the look out for that post.

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.

LBD Goodwill Challenge

Happy Thursday fashionista's! I've been a bit MIA on my blog lately, but today I'm back with an exciting post. 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.


The little black dress challenge was presented by Goodwill of Central Arizona and Phoenix Fashion Week. You had to shop at one of 67 locations, find a project dress, up-cycle, re-purpose it into your own perfect little black dress. The dresses would then be turned in by Saturday 26, 2015. Which would then be judged by up-cycle expert Angela Johnson. They select the top four designs. Once chosen 25% of the votes would come from social media and 75% …

Behind the Seams I

It's been a while since I've done a custom design or a Behind the Seams segment. Today I will be sharing with you my latest work. A month ago I was contacted by a young lady to design a gown for a wedding she was attending mid April. She sent me a picture of a mermaid dress she had stumbled across. The problem was that she wouldn't be able to get it delivered just in time for her event. I came to her rescue j/k. I met with her took down her measurements talked about fabric choices and any other details.


Here is a sketch of the design.
The design consisted of a mermaid silhouette, the neckline was almost like a racer back. The back was exposed with tiny spaghetti straps. The back skirt had a tiny bustle. The hem had tulle peeking out all around.

The chosen fabrics were red peach skin, red lining, and black tulle. The notions that were used included an invisible zipper and thread.

I generally like to drape my patterns on the dress form over flat pattern. This method seems fa…
