Creative Inspiration

Thursday, March 24, 2016

 I've recently become OBSESSED with these gorgeous works of art by @Relmxx on Instagram. I love the idea of pieces falling away to reveal something underneath and for a while I've been wanting to do a makeup look inspired by her artwork!

When I started this look last night, I wasn't sure where I wanted to go with it. As I was thinking of some other ideas, it hit me! A galaxy!! I have wanted to do a galaxy makeup look for some time as well, so I thought, hey two birds, one stone!

As I was doing some late night makeup, my mind wandered on this concept. Here's where I got: we all look one way on the outside. The one side of us that everyone can physically see. No one truly knows what's underneath, what struggles we are going through, what heartaches each person has. Everyone needs to be kinder with their words, more sensitive, less quick to judge. Because JUST LIKE YOU, everyone has something underneath a perfect exterior.

I'm not sure if that's how the artist meant for this to be interpreted, but that's what I felt as I looked (and totally fell in love with) her art!!

To me, when I look out at the night sky, I see a vast world of possibilities. You can never reach the end, it's constantly changing, endless, beautiful. And has so many possibilities. Just like people.

So take time to admire the galaxy inside yourself and inside other people. Still with me? :)

If you've read this far, then thank you for enduring my ramblings, you beautiful galaxy, you.

NOW LET'S GET INTO WHY YOU'RE HERE!! Hope you enjoy the video! :):)

An Update

Friday, March 11, 2016

Well HI THERE!!!!

It's been about a million years since I've posted here on my blog! I've recently started my transition from fashion blogging to beauty blogging/youtube. I've mainly been on YouTube and Instagram lately! I LOVE fashion so much, but with how crazy my work schedule is, it's really hard for me to find the time to do full on outfit posts. So you will still see a lot of fashion posts from me, but I'm mainly moving over into makeup artistry and fashion design.

Part of the reason for this is because as a fashion blogger, I found myself feeling pressured to put together outfits and to always have something new to share. This got tiring and it stopped being fun (plus feeling the pressure to always buy new clothes isn't fun for my wallet either!!!)

Fashion is still something I love, obviously!!!! As I get more into fashion design and sewing my own creations, (more on that later!) I have also found myself loving learning makeup. The world of makeup is endless. You can create a lot of different things from fewer products.

So here's what's happening here on my blog!

You'll mainly see:
-Makeup Tutorials
-Makeup Reviews
-Fashion Design posts of my original designs, fashion sketches, sneak peeks on what I'm working on and as I start learning more things, possibly some tips and tricks I learn along the way!
-Occasional outfit posts
-Pictures of my cat, Weasley :D
-Life updates

The main reason for this transition is basically what I said above. It became pressure to always have a new outfit to post and it stopped being FUN, which is why I starting blogging in the first place. I guess I just want to share with you more of my real life, and my own creations as I begin that journey into fashion design!

Here's where you can follow along!

Love as always,

The Trifle of Outfits

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

Just like with a trifle, when it comes to outfits, the more layers the better! (As long as you don't accidentally add beef sautéed with peas and onions, am I right..if you don't understand that F.R.I.E.N.D.S reference..you can educate yourself here.)  I really loooovvveee the colors in this flannel and paired with this light turquoise vest, it's a perfectly layered outfit! (No beef sautéed with peas and onions here ;D )

Stripes and A Cargo Jacket

Tuesday, November 10, 2015

I've wanted a cargo jacket for YEARS. And I finally found one that met what I was looking for! With cargo jackets, it's really easy to look too bulky, but this one is great! It's very thin, there isn't a big thick lining! (It's more fashion than function, but that is what I wanted! haha) My favorite part about this jacket is that the waist is cinched. It gives shape to the jacket and keeps me from just looking like a blob. (you feel me, right??)
