Floral print ,dinosaurs, and mermaids oh my!

The other night at a time I'd rather not admit being up at lol , I discovered a website called Society6 . It is a fantastic concept you can upload and sell your designs on a multitude of items without having to order and stock everything yourself. As soon as I saw they made all over printed t shirts . I had to jump on the band wagon and expand my shops designs.

The first design was a dinner party brain storm idea I had a with friends a few weeks back , side note I will make this into wallpaper one day!  I mean dinosaurs and floral print be still my strange little heart what more could I want. So I made it come to life .Here are my favorites with this design.



Next up was to expand on my favorite kitschy mermaid design and let me tell you its even cuter in fabric form!




Is it wrong that i want to buy all the things in my own shop lol

YSL new favorite mascara review



First off let me just say this past year I became a huge fan of YSL makeup products. I was already a huge fan of their babydoll mascara and then I got accepted for the YSL voxbox and I was super excited to try their other mascara If you know me , you know I'm always wearing fake lashes its a habit i picked up years ago and it's so hard to quit. I feel naked without them on lol.  On occasion when running to the store quickly I will just wear mascara and no falsies so when I do i need a majorly amazing mascara to make me feel like I still have lashes.

 Here is a photo with my usual falsies i wear for reference .




This is now with just the YSL volume effect faux clis 
Now for just mascara this is amazing my lashes are usually non existent.
The babydoll mascara does a great job lengthening but the faux clis adds thickness and length which is even better. Ignore the weird things my eyes are doing its hard to get a good photo of the mascara with my lighting lol
I highly recommend this mascara and pretty much any eye product from YSL . I have yet to try the others but I'm looking forward to trying their face and lip products!

I was given this mascara for free to try but all opinions are my own.

Delving into cookie painting

This blog hasn't seem much baking related action lately so I thought I would share with you something I have been working on the past year. Edible painting ,in particular cookie painting  .
The first try was quite awhile ago after seeing it online I did pretty well but kinda forgot the whole thing until last year when i was seeing more and more painted cakes and cookies so I thought I would pick up the brush again .

flower painted cookies

This was my first go at cooking painting above.

I get asked a lot how I went from fashion design to being a baker , well its a long story in general but isn't as much of a stretch as you would think. I studied art for as long as I can remember and to this day its still in my heart. If you really think about it the decorated pastry work I do is just another form of art, sugar art. I take a lot i learned about color and technique with art and apply it to an edible format. Now I will be the first person to say no matter how many years of practice I've had I'm not even close to an amazing artist and don't ask me to paint a lifelike human face lol but the more i have worked on it this year the better I have become .
These are some of my favorites from this past year .


painted corpse bride cookie hand painted retro Christmas cookies tea and scottie cookies

Have you tried anything new this year or would like to start this new year you would like to share?

EShakti holiday dress review

When I was contacted by eShakti  to review another one of their items in their holiday collection I jumped at the chance . With holiday's coming up i was scouring the net trying to find a dress for the holidays . I had been looking for a Christmas print pin up style dress with no luck lol. I browsed their collection and was torn at which to get but decided on the kayla dress. Its currently out of stock so I can't link you but if it comes back i would recommend snagging one.


So i started this post right after Christmas but got swamped with orders and almost forgot about it I'm terrible I'm sorry lol . Let me continue the dresses are made and shipped from another country but somehow I got my dress before most places I order from that are in the U.S. I was so excited to get this dress its even more beautiful in person I will update with more photos when i get a chance to take pictures wearing it. I feel like I'm always rushing when going to a party. The greatest thing about EShakti is that all the dresses offer customization  . Since it was winter i opted to add sleeves to this dress which i should have went with shorter sleeves my own fault though. And you can have it made in custom measurements and by height which is perfect for someone as tall as me . Since even though most dresses run short pin up style dresses are still to long for my taste I got mine at the perfect length . Lastly did I mention this dress has pockets!! It couldn't be more perfect and that brocade pattern is even more amazing in person you can tell this dress is high quality. 

So since I'm late on holidays I'm going to show my dress picks for the upcoming seasons!



If only this came in green ! I could add it to the plaid collection lol


Floral and polka dots yes please!!
Take a look and tell me your favorite design

Layering up with ModCloth

I teamed up with friend and fellow blogger and artist Sara Pulver of Sarapulver.com to create two warm and styled layered looks from ModCloth .
I had one person in mind when doing this challenge and that was Sara we are pretty much style soul mates we love all the same things in fact the Bea Dot high waisted skirt is actually on my loves list over at ModCloth lol



Lovely Layers




Here is what she has to say about her picks!
I will be the first to admit, I chose this entire outfit based on the Bea & Dot Ikebana skirt. I am in love with the colors and pattern! I chose a chunky cardigan and booties to balance out the ultra-feminine qualities in both the skit and ivory top. And of course, I couldn't say no to these incredible Cicada earrings. They are the perfect complement to the floral skirt.


I just love her picks especially that skirt and earrings! Next up is my layering for the cold look. 





layering with love modcloth




I am normally a sucker for a printed dress but i love the simplicity of this green dress and adding lots of flair with the embellished cardigan fun boots and of course how can you resist this cute fox bag! My whole wardrobe consists of black,purple,green and floral print so instead of pairing this with navy or brown like others would i chose black. Its always classic. ModCloth has so many sweaters right now that I am dying over perfect for your layering look!  
Something I'm a huge fan of over at ModCloth is their fit, they come in so many sizes for petite to curvy ladies and there is a blurb on the side which will tell you how different items fit and size chart. And if you still can't find the perfect fit free returns which I'm a huge fan of lol.

So tell me guys what is your favorite item for layering over at ModCloth?

P.s while over on Sara's blog check out this amazing free Printable card for Valentines Day!
