Refashion Runway Sewalong: Metallic

I found this awesome two piece prom dress (or costume…) for .99 cents, as always:)


It’s too awesome for just one “before” shot!

I modeled this just before heading out to the gym. Though the material looks like glitter it is actually metallic floss thread, making it perfect for the RR challenge.

Mote Marine Shirt

I just got back from vacation. 8 days goes by so fast in paradise… Usually, I wear several refashions when we go to Florida and will post about them when we get back. This trip was a little more laid back for us and, honestly, I was lazy. What are vacations for, right?:) This is the only refashion I have from our glorious week on Siesta Key.

Refashion Runway Sew Along: Velvet

Did you guys hear the news?!?! Refashion Runway is back and Season Four is an All Star Edition. My friends Gema and Marisa from my season are back and so are several favorites from seasons past. I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with for week one, which, spoiler alert… is velvet!


This very heavy velvet wonder has been in my stash for nearly a year. Though it doesn’t translate well in the pictures, it has sparklies all over it. I thought this would make a lovely dress for the holidays, and I happily purchased it for only .99 cents.

Lipstick Giveaway Winner!

Thank you everyone who participated in my very first giveaway yesterday.

I’m sure I’ll get better at it with time and hopefully I can offer more product in future giveaways.

I used to generate the number 6. The 6th entrant was the lucky Victoria Leeder:)


I actually go to church with this cutie. She’s the daughter of my preacher. She recently had to go through a nose surgery due to an accident. Does that sound familiar??? I feel your pain, girl. I’m glad you’re recovering well and I hope you enjoy your First Blush lipstick.

Please stay tuned for more giveaways. Also, I welcome feedback for next time (what would YOU like to see in the giveaways, etc).

Thanks, again!


Lipstick Personality: A GIVEAWAY

Happy Friday, everyone! Not only is it nearly the weekend, it’s “National Lipstick Day” today. What better way to celebrate than with a giveaway?


As an “Accidental Seamstress” this might not make much sense to be giving away a lipstick of all things… As a Beauty Consultant, which is how I spend my time moonlighting, it makes perfect sense!
