A lot of people ask me how was I able to achieve an 800+ credit score. So today I'll share with you a few tips on building your credit. A few years ago I didn't even have a credit score, while applying for a credit card I was told I wasn't approved because 1. I had no prior credit history OR 2. I had derogatory marks on my credit report. A few years before applying for a credit card my social security card was stolen alon...

Anyone that know me personally knows that I am a pattern hoarder. Trust me, it's bad (lol). I have tons of patterns I have NEVER opened and can't seem to resist the sales at JOANNS for $1.99 (most patterns are usually $18+). I try to keep my patterns as neat and organized as possible but I still have a lot that I haven't used yet. Recently, I decided to put to use the Simplicity bodysuit pattern and since spring is finally her...

Who knew all the benefits of SPINACH? Earlier this year I was diagnosed with hypertension. It all started one day as a regular check-up at the doc office and before I knew it I was being rushed to the ER and was told I couldn’t leave until my blood pressure was down. I remember my BP being 179/90+ which is terribly high. Shortly after that ER incident I was put on medication to regulate my high blood pressure. I was taking the...

So a lot of you guys been asking me where I get my eye glasses from. .  I came across this awesome site last year called WhereLight .

If interested in purchasing any glasses with your presc...

 So I finally finished up PROM SEASON and finished working on a gown that I started on in the middle of last year. I was inspired by Tyra Banks dress in the movie "LIFE SIZE". I remember watching the movie and thinking how cool it would be to make a gown with tulle at the bottom and make the bodice out of sequins. So recently, after finishing the dress, I tried it on and did a mini iphone photoshoot outdoors. I absolutely love...

I honestly have always been skeptical about buying fabric online .. For one, I'm the type of person that has to touch the fabric and test it out for quality before I buy it. When it comes to illusion mesh I usually get it in downtown LA but the store I usually go to in LA Fashion District has closed down and no longer sell online. So I turned to my sewing group on Facebook which has over 8,200+ members. I was seeking some illu...

Sharing some of my favorite products this month by DERMA|E. I've been using DERMA|E for about 2 years now. I first discovered this brand when I attended my first ever beauty event (GENBEAUTY). I remember going to the beauty event and being so annoyed because I had a pimple on my face on the day I was trying to look flawless. DERMA|E had a booth and were giving out nice size samples and I remember using one of their products an...

There are so many patterns nowadays that you can find that are the same look as trendy red carpet garments. A while ago I came across this wrap dress pattern from SIMPLICITY #8013 which was really close in style to Khloe Kardashian wrap dress that was made by celebrity fashion designer Michael Costello. How closely they resemble right? I have drafted out some wrap dresses but I haven't made any with the bishop sleeves or...
