Fashion Sketches

So I told you that I would love to be on Project Runway one day! I was in Fashion school last year and took a break. Here are a few sketches that I made and I decided to share to get your opinion. Now, they are not perfect or great by any means. Do you like any? Or is it just a waste of my imagination??

Just a few sketches I liked when I saw them again.... What do you think?

Anniversary Recap

Hubby and I have been married 4 great years! It has been wonderful and beautiful and fun.   Some people say they cannot believe we are still so happy! I don't get that logic. I married the right man. He is THE ONE! I had a lot of frogs in disguise  and my prince would have been overlooked if I didn't get my mind right and see the big picture. We are not content, we are happy. We are not settling, we are sure. We are not dysfunctional, we are a team! I love him to death and now we will share our love with a new addition to our family. We were nervous when we found out the news because we didn't want the big change to affect our relationship and our plans.... but now we cannot wait! We were being spoiled and selfish!

Anyhow, my anniversary was October 6. he spoiled me all day! I had 4 dozen red roses sent to the crib. Then a few hours later, a huge Edible arrangement. Then dinner at The Melting Pot. Then a Nook Color as  my appliance gift. He knew I didn't want a new fridge or anything the gifts for 4 year include fruits/flowers/appliances. He hit everyone! Then we spent the night at the hotel we stayed in on our wedding night! Great day right!??

Had my French Connection Maternity Dress from ASOS and my HeadBanger Earrings!  Face was out of sorts but I had a great anniversary date! 

Then I was hospitalized the next morning for 3 days! I knew something was wrong because my legs and face had swollen so much in one day. My makeup looked bad that night at dinner! They thought I had preeclampsia and was going to take the baby. Thank GOD they observed me and did not have to do that.

I was missing my Edible Arrangement though. It just did not taste the same after 3 days!!!

Today is his birthday! October is a fun filled month for us!

Don't miss out on my Words with Friends Contest from yesterday's post!

L'oreal Project Runway Collection

So I heard about this limited edition collection from L'oreal and Project Runway. We don't have it at my Walgreens yet so I sent a friend to Ulta to get some. They were sold out except for one eye shadow quad and 1 blush! They are sold out on Ulta online also. I wanted all for quads. Ulta had buy one get one 50% off.

Here is a sample of what I got! Sultry Raven's Gaze 

Pressed eyeshadow quad 715 

Great pigment and perfect for a night out look! I cannot wait to try it on my eye! 

Super Blendable blush 725 

Pardon the swollen hand! But it looks as this  will be a shimmery blush/ highlighter on my skin tone. We will see when I try it  on my cheeks! 

There are 3 other looks that include eyeshadow, lipstick, blush, and nail polish. 

This is the one I have! 

Here is the link to take the quiz to see which collection suits your personal style.  Take it! 
I'm a cuckatoo!   I gotta find that  cuckatoo!

Team Anya- Project Runway/ Guest Features

Hey I have two guest features on some other great blogs today: Lattes and Heels and A Girl in Pearls and A Boy with Toys.  Please go show me some love and comment.

I am a HUGGGEEE fan of Project Runway. I would love to make it there one day! I took some fashion design courses at Academy of Art University to get into it more since it has been my passion for years. I have postponed due to cost and demands from work. I have been watching Project Runway since Season 2 and I always have a favorite. This season is Anya.

Anya has been the underdog since day one. She had only bee sewing for 4 months before she auditioned for the show. Now she has won top spot in competitions, $20,000, and a chance to show a line at Lincoln Center during Fashion Week!  Comments from competitors on the show have been belittling against her but she pulls through and pushes herself despite the negativity and jealousy.  Check out some of her work.

Anya Ayoung-Chee

Do you watch? Are you Team Anya? Do you have another favorite?  (Secret:  I like Victor's work too!)
Check it out on Lifetime Thursday at 9/8pm c  

Dont forget to head over and check out other posts!!
