This months theme is Glitz & Glam, because you can never be too glamorous during the holidays! The box was filled with five items; blush kit, concealer kit, liquid lipstick, mascara, and blush brush! I will tell you more about each item below, mini review, and swatches!

Blush Kit by Real Her: Retails at $32
The blush palette kit invludes three shimmery tones. They are so smooth to swatch and look very pretty on your cheeks. With this palette you can have three options or layer them for a different look. They have the perfect pinky balance keeping your cheeks and you looking natural! Because y'all know if it's too pink you end up looking like a clown, not with these bad boys!

Pro Concealer Palette by Bellápierre: Retails at $29.99
Bellápierre's professional color correcting concealer palette is formulated with rich, creamy, good-for-your-skin ingredients helping create a flawless healthy complexion. If there's anything I lack is an uneven completion, so I'm really excited about this palette! Sometimes primer and concealer aren't enough to cover red spots or dark circles! #MomLife #CoffeePlz

My Lips Are Sealed Lightweight Liquid Lipstick by Pretty Vulgar: Retail at $24
This is a pigmented liquid lipstick that provides a radiant metallic finish. It has a nice creamy texture. Best of all it has a citrus cordial flavor, YUM! I heard a lot of rave about Pretty Vulgar, and now I can see why it's a luxury liquid lipstick! The color is a beautiful rose nude, y'all know I'm about that life.
Tartiest Lash Paint Mascara by Tarte: Retails at $23
This is a jet black, vegan mascara that has a molded brush that grabs and coats even the tiniest lashes for more volume! I really like the wand it doesn't grab too much product and the formula is rich. It doesn't clump up and gives you full volume. I think this is my "IT" mascara I absolutely love what it does for my lashes.
Deluxe Blush Brush by Crown Brush: Retails at $12
This brush has soft dense synthetic bristles. The brush can be used with both powder and cream blushes. It provides medium to full coverage for a dramatic finish. I'm glad BoxyCharm paired my blush palette with the brush!
I'm definitely going to be glammed up thanks to BoxyCharm! This months box is valued at $120.99, and you only pay $21! I'm excited about each item especially the Bellápierre concealer kit since it's a new brand for me and I've never used a color corrector. Great way to end the year BoxyCharm You never disappoint!

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…
