Boxy Charm/ November Beauty Box

Hope you all had  a wonderful Thanksgiving and had fun doing your holiday's shopping! Now it's time to sit back and take a sip of your favorite hot beverage, because today I'm revealing November's Boxy Charm!
I'm not going to lie I was a bit upset with Boxy on how they went about selling their Limited Edition. But you know what I can't stay mad at Boxy because this month's box was on fleek! The theme was sweater weather, which I'm all for! Love me some cozy sweaters and boots! As usual I will share with you all the products, tell you more about them, a mini review, and a 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.")
Luxie Beauty Quad Eye Travel Set: Retail: $32
This is one of those must have on your travel mskeup bag. They are four travel size brushes; the eye shading brush, angled, blending, and flat defining brush. They come in the shade of a soft pink and are hand crafted synthetic bristles. They are soft, they work beautifully at applying, and blending eyeshadow.
                 (From left to right )
Blending Brush 227T
Eye Shading Brush 213T
Medium Angle Shading Brush 207T
Flat Definer Brush 221T
Cover FX Illuminating Setting Spray: Retail $31
This is a quick drying setting spray that sets makeup for all day wear. It has an instant, all-over illumination effect. Best part it is alcohol free, which means it doesn't over dry the skin. This is great for all skin tones and types. So this holidays get your glow on! Be warn you must cautiously apply it by shaking it vigorously before applying it otherwise you'll end up looking like you just sweated glitter lol.


Laqa & Co Clouds Lips: Retail: $17

This is an airy matte lipstick that provides full coverage, feels as light as a cloud. The pigmentation is high, with a matte finish, and stays put throughout all the holidays deliciousness! I got the shade Sunshower and it's not usually a color I would gravitate towards, definitely will take me out of my comfort zone. This is why I love Boxy Charm because you can discover and try new makeup that you wouldn't otherwise.

KNC Beauty Collagen Lip Masks: Retail:$15
This is an innovative jelly mask for your lips that hydrate, moisturize, and plump lips with natural ingredients. The mask looks a little silly on as it is in the shape of large pink lips and when you apply it you can't talk, or eat for 15-30 min. Meanwhile you can read your latest Glamour Magazine or latest episode of Gray's Anatomy whatever sprinkles your doughnut!


Winkylux Kitten Palette: Retail: $25
I don't know about you but a girl can never have enough eyeshadow palettes, and yes they included one in this box. These shadows are ultra-soft, glide on like butter. The collection is beautiful with jewel tones, and earth tones. Perfect for fall and the upcoming holidays. It features highly pigmented shadows in four finishes: holographic, matte, satin, and glitter. The cover has adorable little kittens, what's not to love.
              (Swatch Time)
Top: Purr, Duchess, Strut
Middle: Holographic, 9 Lives, Cateye
Bottom: Romeo, Cheshire, Boots
To wrap it up, this months Boxy Charm redeemed itself from their Limited Edition debacle! Did you score a Limited Edition Boxy Charm? I absolutely love the entire box and I'm excited to play with the Winkylux Kitten Palette!! My lips need a little boost so these lip mask will give them life! Now onto the total value of this months box is $120 and you only pay $21, great bang for your buck if you ask me. If you haven't signed up what are you waiting for? I'll leave my refferal link below, thank you in advance if you use it! What box subscription did you buy to gift this holiday, let me know in the comments below?

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…
