I ordered my first Bump Boxes on my last week of my pregnancy thought it be cool to come back home from delivering to a nice little pick me up. I got five full-sized products which were; the Revitalizing Face Moisturizer, lactation cookies, post pregnancy recovery cream, heartburn tea, and a pair of cute no slip socks. I'll be telling you more about each product as well as reviewing it below. (Disclaimer: This review was not Sponsored by Bump Boxes I paid for my box and all opinions are mine)
The Revitalising Face Moisturizer by Yorba Organics: it is a light-textured Face Moisturizer that absorbs into the skin, providing long lasting protection. Kigelia is packed with nutrients that aid in the repair of damaged or aging skin, while the other actives leave the skin hydrated and balanced without being greasy. It is an excellent face moisturizer for sensitive skin needing hydration. Their main ingredient Kigelia is a clinically proven antibacterial and is known to aid in the natural treatment of very dry skin conditions and Eczema. It is also a highly effective anti-inflammatory and antioxidant ingredient. It is a 3.5 FLoz and retails at $16.95. The texture is was a bit thick than what described on the packaging with a yellow color. When applying a dime size is more than enough. You will immediately feel it hydrating and penetrating in your skin. It feels luxurious and leaves skin soft and revitalized!

Bobby Boons Lactation Cookies: The cookies are made from the purist of ingredients including Stork and Dove’s proprietary blend of natural, non-herbal galactagogues proven to increase breast milk supply naturally and safely. The Lactation Cookies are made specifically for breast feeding moms! Booby Boons are wheat free, soy free, non GMO and made with the purest of ingredients. They are mommas little helper, when it comes to increasing breast milk supply. They come in various flavors such as; Cocoa Quinoa, Oatmeal Raisin or Chocolate Chip. I was extremely excited about the cookies because I really wanted to breast feed this time around and was willing to try anything to increase my lactation. I got the cocoa quinoa flavor and they were delicious! An hour before breast feeding I ate one or two to increase my milk supply. The texture is not too dry or soft it's just right, they do however crumble easily. They definitely work wonders if you have problems lactating like I do! The bag is 6 oz, if you eat between 1-2 cookies four times a day they package will last you about 3-4 days. You can find these at Target if you decide to continue buying them at $9.99.
Post Pregnancy Recovery Cream by Bella B Body Buzz: It is specially formulated to firm skin all over the body and minimize cellulite, all in one luscious body cream. They use the very best ingredients found in much more expensive creams in much smaller containers, and bring them to you naturally. Clinical testing of their key ingredients has shown dramatic improvement for both firming key areas of your body while at the same time minimizing cellulite. It has a creamy consistency and mild fresh scent. Consistency is key, using it liberally twice daily for best results. The bottle is 8 oz and retails at $12.99. I was beyond excited for this cream, I've been using it for the past two weeks and have noticed the difference already. I absolutely love it!
Heartburn Tea by Earth Mamma Angel Baby Organics: It is a soothing and delicious mellow mint blend. Formulated especially for pregnancy with herbs traditionally used for the relief of occasional heartburn, acid reflux, and indigestion. With organic marshmallow root and tummy comforting lemon balm, chamomile, spearmint, and astringent red raspberry leaf. Not just for pregnancy, settling after meals too! The teas are naturally caffeine free in easy to brew tea bag. The tea can be used for after meal, overindulgence, sore throat, sfratchy cough, and diarrhea. It contains 16 bags and retails at $5.99. I am a huge coffee fan, but since I'm breast feeding this tea is a great alternative. I would have really used this tea while I was pregnant since I suffered from heartnurns during my pregnancy.
No Slip Socks by Inhale Exhale: The socks have a rubber gripping on the bottom, perfect to use at the hospital on delivery day! The bottom grip says Bumplife, how cute is that! They are pretty comfy to wear around the house if you don't want to wear shoes. They retail at $13.99 and the size is for women who wear shoe size 6-10. I really liked the grey, aqua, and teal blue combo.
My final thoughts, Bump Boxes was everything I had hopped it would be! It was nice to come home to it after my delivery. I would definitely recommend this box for expecting moms or if you know someone one who's expecting like your wife, sister, or a beast friend this is the perfect gift!! This box retail value is at $59.91 and you only pay $39.99 and you can get 40% off your first Bump Boxes using BUMP40 at check out! Hope you loved today's subscription box, let me know what you thought about this subscription box?

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…
