It's November, this time of the year we start to reflect on the year and are thankful for our loved ones. Today I am reviewing a new subscription beauty box GLOSSYBOX! This months box is curated with brands that not only look good but do good too. If you love all things beauty and skincare, then you will love GLOSSYBOX beauty box subscriptions! Each month they choose 5-6 products that are gorgeously packaged and delivered straight to your door, for just $21.00 with FREE shipping!
November’s box theme is Grateful, in honor of the GLOSSYBOX community. This month's products are to transform your everyday beauty routine into something worth celebrating all on its own.
The box is beautiful in itself with gold and white great to keep and store your skin care products and makeup. It is beautifully packaged making it feel extra special! The five products that were included in this months box were; Nature Queen shampoo and conditioner, Evio Beauty Primer, Laqa lipstick, Tartiest brow gel, and Kat Von D Beauty parafum. Below I'll tell you more about each product and do a mini review. (Disclosure, all products provided by GLOSSYBOX All my opinions are mine and I'm keeping it 100%.)
Nature Queen Shampoo and Conditioner:
Full size: $39/ set of two 16 FL. Oz. Bottles
This shampoo and conditioner nourishes, balances, and cleanses your hair beautifully with their natural ingredients. Their aromatic ingredients include honey locoust, lemongrass, and patchouli. Every key ingredient is proven to stimulate a healthier scalp, hair growth, and appearance. The pump style is convenient to avoid over pouring. The scent is a bit strong for my taste but it can be a good thing after the shower making your hair smell great all day.
Evio Beauty Primer: Full size: $29.50/0.6 FL
Pamper your skin with this silky green tea and avocado oil blend. This means a smooth start and finish every time.This is paraben-free vegan primer that gives back $1 from each tube goes directly to YWCA Canada. I love beauty for a cause!
Laqa & Co Cloud Lips Airy Matte Lipstick in Daydream
Full size:$17
This lipstick is smooth and creamy because of the avocado oil ingredient! The color is a beautiful nude rosey. I absolutely love it, as it is a great everyday lipstick. I did swatch it but have yet to see if it truly lastes all day.
Tartiest Brow Gel: Full size:$19/.16FL. Oz.
Tame and maintain your brows with Tarte's genius gel. It is paraben-free, water-infused formula means no drying, no flaking, and a naturally clean finish with just a few quick strokes. As a bonus the little brush also tames flyaways! I like how quickly I can fill in my eyebrows with a few stokes. This is great for when I'm running low on time but still want neat patch free brows.
Kat Von D Beauty  Saint Parafum: Full size: $65/1.7 oz
Leave it to the daring Kat Von D to create scents that customize based on your own body heat. Saint features classic floral scents of vanilla, musk, and jasmine. If you want your scent to last longer simply apply to the creases of your elbows,  knees, wrist, and neckline. It is beautifully packaged in a round glass bottle. This scent is amazing, I'm a bit picky on fragrance but this one is wearable for me.
I absolutely love everything in November's GLOSSYBOX, these brands are amazing they will definitely get you holiday ready! I'm really excited about Tartiest Brow Gel lately I've been experimenting with new techniques on how to fill my eyebrows, this one will come handy for days that I'm on the go. The Kat Von D Saint Parafum will be a great rotation to my perfume collection! Talking about the holidays, how about gifting a GLOSSYBOX for someone special or for yourself?

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…
