Wow, it seems like every month is going by fast. Before we know it we'll be saying goodbye to 2017! It's that time again ladies and gents, November IPSY Glam Bag!
This months bag is giving me fall vibes. It is bold, bright, and sparkly. I got the mustard yellow with gold tone, they had a blue one as well this month.
This is bag is perfect for all your fall essentials. Below I'll be sharing all the goodies I got this month, along with some info on the products, and swatches. (Disclosure: This review was not Sponsored by IPSY I paid for my glam bag and all opinions are mine)

Naked Cosmetics Eyeshadow, Mother Nature #06:
This loose powder is really easy to apply, and can be used wet or dry. The shade has a pop of metallic color. Use it all over your lids and on your lips. Simply mix a little bit with some clear gloss on the back of your hand and dab on. Looking for more drama, you can layer it over a darker shadow, perfect for date night.
White Lavender Body Lotion by the White Company:
The ingridents found in this lotion are  lavender, Sicilian lemon, and vetiver. Making the scent last all day on your skin. This lotion is not sticky, yet it's moisturizing, and it feels light so you can layer as much as you wish.
CROWN BRUSH
C141 Small Chisel Brush:
This brush is a lightweight, easy to handle, and it is the perfect size for applying highlighter and blush. The bristles are so soft. I'm always excited to add a new brush to my collection, this one will go great for applying my BECCA highlighter I got on September's Boxy Charm!

TARTE
Deluxe Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Feisty
It’s made with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon river.
This blush benefits every skin type. It minimizes oil in and around your pores. It’s very hydrating and helps your skin hold onto moisture. It’ll keep your skin balanced and happy. It’s soft, silky, and easy to blend with your fingertips or a brush. Like the name says, it really lasts all day.

Ultra Satin Lip in Calypso by ColourPop
If you’re talking, snacking, and drinking often, this long-wear lip color will give you life. I applied it in the morning and by the afternoon it was still holding on strong! I got Calypso, it is a warm pink with brown undertones. It's so beautiful it has become my go to right now.
Swatch Time
top: eyeshadow
middle: liquid lipstick
bottom: blush

This months bag was amazing, I know I say this every month but they haven't disappointed me! Some of the major highlights from this bag is the liquid lipstick by Colourpop my current favorite brand!!

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…
