Meeting Ashley Nell Tipton?

All along I always watched Project Runway in TV.

I always dreamed on competing against other designers and winning it all in New York Fashion Week.

Season 14 of Project Runway was the most interesting one to watch because the lovely Ashley Nell Tipton represented “San Diego.” Not only that, but the designs threw me off!; especially with the first challenge.

Ashley Nell Tipton attended San Diego Mesa College (as where I am now)  and moved on to another school that doesn’t exists anymore.

Meeting her in the Grand Finale of the last episode of the winner was bizarre. I was glad to be invited to the W hotel for the last episode announcing the winner. I had a good feeling that she was going to win because her designs wowed me and blew up everyone’s mind.

As everyone is seeing who’s going to win project runway, I get prepared to hold back inside my eyes of no tears. I counn’t help, but to think how amazing did Ashley Nell Tipton was and still is. I cried because she won, cried of happiness and joy for her.

It give me like good shivers because it’s just that fantastic to see how hard she worked and how she always dreamed about all what came true.

Ashley Nell Tipton made me believe even more that dreams are real, and that you have to be able to set goals and accomplish the. If you want it so badly, you must go for it.

The time that I meet her was when it was only my first semester as a freshman in college.

Ashley Nell Tipton has always said “It doesn’t matter what school you got to, as long as you know what your learning is going to help you as a person and designer.” Designers don’t have to go where everyone went, which is true. I believe everyone can do it, It’s what your hands, mind, and your love is willing to create.  Many ideas out there can blew peoples mind.

Did you guys see the designs? Like her designs are fenominal.

I realllllyyy love how she uses so many colors in her collection that are different but simplify. The collection screams bold, beautiful, and brave.

Bold because it’s like a pow in the face with such colors and standard of how the designs fit the models.

Beautiful because all the pieces are so amazing and the fact that is Plus size models wearing it makes it more impressed. I even wish for the collection to have it in my size.

Bold because you can see the designers aren’t afraid of how they look, Fashion shouldn’t critique your size. Fashion is for everyone all over the world. A lot of plus size friends I have are afraid to show the body figure, and I feel like Ashley Nell Tipton really put together the pieces well thought.

Ashley is now Americas Fashion Designer for Plus sizes.

Month’s later she announces she is a Brand Ambassador for JCPenney.

I use to work at JCPenney, so as I work I would always admire her designs when passing where it was placed. I just wish they really had it on small for me to wear it.

Ashley keeps in touch with her followers, fans, and everyone.

I went to a Movie Screening that Ashley was hosting for “The Dressmaker” a movie about a dressmaker women accused for murdering when she was a child, she returns to her home which is Australia and gets revenge for does that made everyone think she was a murder when she was not. It was around the Fall season of 2016.

That was a amazing night, I was able to speak to Ashley again and take some pictures. She really admires everyone that has supported her and been inspired by her.

I sure did get inspired than ever before and still continue to get inspiration.

Ashley made me believe more what I believed than before, that dreams are real if you work hard for it and accomplish it by steps and encounter the mistakes in life or the bad when you think life is going down, when in reality it shouldn’t. EVER!

I admire Ashley Nell Tipton. I admire her work, designs, as a person, and how hard she has worked to achieve her goals that turned into dreams.

I know someday I will be a Mexican American Fashion Designer.

Skin Care

Hello my Beauty’s ❤

sushimaking Natural Skin * No makeup. Natural lighting.

the-art-of%e2%80%a8procrastination-1

These are the skin products I use for my face that work best for me as of now.

My skin suffers from severe dryness in the winter, so my skin is normal to dry skin. I alternative with different moisturizers and cleansers through out the year because I am still on a hunt for the most perfect one. For now, the products shown are the one’s that been good lately, but I still want to try new products as I discover. I am always open to try new products.

Face Cleanser: Soy Face Cleanser by Fresh. $38

After a long day , I like to wash my face with this cleanser to take off all the makeup and dirt. This is the first thing I do as for my night time routine. I wet my face and  apply the cleanser directly and start doing circular movements all over and start rubbing it in my eyes to take off all the eye makeup. Right after, I wash off with warm water. It leaves my face with a fresh sensation and  feels smooth. I highly recommend this product for anyone that is trying out different cleansers. It’s for all skin types, in which is a plus+.

Foaming scrub: Neutrogena Oil-free Acne Wash. $7

This foaming scrub is the second step to my skin routine at night and first thing in the morning. The reason I like this product is because it helps with my acne spots to dissolve. I never suffered from poor acne, but every now and than I get some acne spots that I don’t like to pop. I do not recommend poking your acne because they turn into scars. I been alternating with high end and drugstore products for acne treatments. This one is doing just fine, but I feel like I can find a even better one out there. Remember, I am in the hunt, but for the past 5 months its been suitable. I apply this with the clarisonic brush and leave on for 2-4 minutes to really observe inside my skin, than  I wash with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel.

Face Brush: Clariosnic Mia 2. $169

The fun part of my skin care routine is using the face brush on my face. I seriously love this brush cleanser because it really goes deep into your skin. When using the product it alternatives the time in seconds for each section like 20 seconds for the forehead and 20 for the nose/chin, than 10 seconds on each side cheek. When using the brush I put Neutrogena foaming scrub and  leave for 2-4 minutes. After using the brush I let it air dry and take the brush head of and dry the inside of where the head goes. It’s recommend to change the brush head every 3 months. I believe everyone should get there hands on the Clarisonic. The Mia 2 in particular with speed for fragile skin. All Mia’s are waterproof and rechargeable. The brush head can be changed with different varieties, such as Normal, Exfoliate, Sensitive, and more. Get what best suits you. What you waiting for? Go get yourself one!

Moisturizer: La Mer Moisturizing cream $170 and Lotus youth Preserve by Fresh .$45

http://www.sephora.com/lotus-youth-preserve-face-cream-with-super-7-complex-P377123?skuId=1488352&icid2=products%20grid:p377123

My skin has been super dry lately, but this two moisturizers has been saving the thirst and has given it moist. As you can see for La Mer’s  I have a small sample that I get at Bloomingdale’s every time i run out. I don’t buy it because it’s over the price, but its AMAZING! If you have the money I would go for La Mer, it literally makes my skin the softest it has ever been.  Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve is a great product to, much less expensive than La Mer. They both work the same, but my skin feels more moist with La Mer. I apply in morning and before going to sleep because the skin gets thirsty, especially at night because it needs the cream to feel replenished and feel soothing. This is applied right after my face wash/cleanse.

Eye Cream:  Lotus Youth Preserve by Fresh. $45

This product is good for dryness in the eye area and dullness. Our eyes are delicate, you need extra moist in this concentrated area. It has some fruit added for a boost in the eyes to awaken them. Since I sleep low hours, it hides my dark circles in which I love. I apply it before sleeping after my face moisturizer and in the morning before putting on makeup.

Exfoliator: Sugar face polish by Fresh $62

Always have a exfoliator in your skin routine! Why? You want to always exfoliate once a week the face because we need to remove the dead skin cells that are deep. Lately, this one has been doing the thing, leaves my skin feeling amazing and very dense. It gives me a radiant complexion. It’s for all skin types, but best for dry skin like me!

Lip Mask: Satin Lips by Mary Kay. $18 (with set)

My lovely grandmother gift me this lip mask, and it’s amazing. It leave’s my lips well moisturized and soft. It exfoliates dead skin cells from the lips in which it interacts having them soft and fresh like new.

Let me know if you try this products out everyone<3 I highly recommend them all. If you have any recommendations let me know.
