Me

Hi yall, 

Today, I toured the headquarters of Reformotion in LA.

Yael Aflalo started Reformation in 2009. 

They are the #2 in sustainable. As you know Fashion involves a lot of power in which leads pollution.  For this reason, Reformation manufactureseco friendly materials.

It was a amazing experience to learn a lot from the company โค

Thank You Reformation๐Ÿ’ซ

Little Girl Dress ๐Ÿ‘—ย 

Fashion

Hi everyone ๐Ÿ’• 

My first design everrr is this dress๐Ÿ‘—

Let me tell you it took me so long to do this dress because I did it with bearly knowing how to sew. This was one of my first ever projects from Apparel Construction I at Mesa College. I have been practicing and let me tell you the sleeves were the hardest. 

My 7 year old sister is modeling the dress I made ๐ŸŒป she is tall; so the dress is shorter on her for her size. I still love it, and so does she.๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜ 

Dress includes Collar, Gathered Sleeves, Ties, and cord. โœ‚๏ธ

Woven Fabric. 100% Cotton.

Love,

Class of 2017๐ŸŽ“ Associates Degree ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ’ญ

Lifestyle

I MADE IT!!!!

Class of 2017!!

I am Proud to say I am now a college graduate. This doesn’t mean Its over, it means it keeps going.

I am 19 years old. I did it in 2 years..

โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹

โ€‹

when I graduated high school, I knew right away I wanted to go to college. I was 18 When I started college, and Now i’ll be 20 in July 2017..

I always wanted to study Fashion Design, so here I came to San Diego Mesa College. A college that I was able to get grants and scholarships to help me with my education. I always wanted to aim higher then just a Associates Degree, so here I am still going.

I had some ups and downs, theres times I felt like I wanted to give up, ๐Ÿ˜ช but I didn’t! I keept strong! I swear to yall, this was not easy. I took a bit risks, I give it all in, I tried so hard to get my grades going and learn so much! I love school, I love learning new things. My passion is for FASHION.

My hardest semester ever had to be Spring 2017.. Why? Because sewing and pattern making was new to me. I never been taught until now.. but it was worth everything. Its very enjoyable ๐Ÿ’– Its what I LOVE! Never thought sewing and pattern making would be so difficult, but my professor A.M believed in me, and she knew I tried my very best.. All my professors have encoraged me and have told me I am going to make it far in life just like my communication professor from Spring 2016. I took so many units at once, because I believe I can do it! Working Full time and being a Full time student was very tough, but I did it! If you believe it, you can do it!

โ€‹โ€‹
Now, that I graduated from San Diego Mesa College.. I will be moving to the Beach! Not just a Beach.. ๐ŸŒŠ butttt LONG BEACH!!!

Did I Mention I got Accepted to California State University of Long Beach!!!!โœจ๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

God, The life creator, everything. Has always helped me believe everythings possible. Whenever I thought I was gonna losse it all, God was there to tell me that it’s not over because you fail the quiz or because you didn’t get a perfect score.

Thank You to my parents, always supporting me and telling me how Amazing i’m doing.. I am first Generation Graduate from my family. My parents never had the money for school, never were they able to finish high school because there hometown was a poor place.. I had the opportunity to show them that I want to dream big.. with all the support it has make me believe a lot more.. I can’t wait to show my parents/family what more I can accomplis..๐Ÿ’•โค๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŽ€๐Ÿ“šโœ‚๏ธ I love my family๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป

Life is about taking risks.. I remember the Hardest course class for my generel ed had to be Humanities.. Why? Because it’s a lot of information.. I remember i didnt do so well in the midterm.. I was scared to fail. I thought of Withdrawing the class.. but my friends, family, and GOD believed I can do it. So, I took a big risk because chances were I could of failed.. and guess what in the Final I got a B!! I ended up getting a C. It wasn’t what I wanted, but it was seriosly the hardest ever.. maybe because I took it in Winter session which was 4 week course..I set standards and goals to accomplish and get what I want..

So, since Im trasnfering, I didnt get my A.A degree in Fashion Design because I wanted to go straight for my Bachelors.. but I still earned a Associates Degree in Liberal Arts of Social Science Behavior โœจ I am still happy with that because I was able to trasnfer with some degree. Afterall, I am a designer โœ‚๏ธ

I plan to get my Masters Degree in Fashion Design after my Bachelors degree..๐Ÿ’ญโœจ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ‘‘

Life has been crazy, buttt I love it.. I love busy, I love life, I’m excited for what the future holds for me๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ญโšก๏ธ

I want to inspire to aspire and motivate everyone out there.. never ever everrr give up in dreams.. dream big, dream bright, everything is possible in this world. I swear, only you can do that change..๐Ÿ“š everything is worth it.. make goals, every goal out there because does goals lead to a big goal.. its amazing how life is beauitful, make it your way ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ญ

Here I am now, In August 28, 2017 I start CSULB.. while i’m learning and getting prepare for my Bachelor’s, I will have my business running meanwhile as I grow.. I know I’ll be the greatest eveeer! I plan so much, it’s all suprise, so wait on itโœจ

Meeting Ashley Nell Tipton?

Me

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.

ash

 

Ashley Nell Tipton attended San Diego Mesa College (as where I am now)ย  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.ย  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.

ashley

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.

img_0501

 

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

Beauty

Hello my Beauty’s โค

sushimakingย 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

img_1677

http://www.sephora.com/soy-face-cleanser-P7880?skuId=1059880&publisher_id=255779&sub_publisher=g&is_mobile=&sub1=&sub_keyword=&sub_campaign=378477159&sub_placement=&gdevice=c&gclid=CMyiua_qotICFYGHfgodk_APEA&site=_search&om_mmc=ppc-GG_378477159_27759162639_pla-181497099639_1059880_97594802559_9061221_c&gmodel=&country_switch=&lang=en&sub_ad=97594802559

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 ย 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.ย It leaves my face with a fresh sensation and ย 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

http://www.target.com/p/neutrogena-oil-free-acne-wash-pink-grapefruit-foaming-scrub-4-2-oz/-/A-11537187?ref=tgt_adv_XS000000&AFID=google_pla_df&CPNG=PLA_Health+Beauty+Shopping&adgroup=SC_Health+Beauty&LID=700000001170770pgs&network=g&device=c&location=9061221&gclid=CNHoq8LsotICFVVsfgod610EVw&gclsrc=aw.ds

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 ย I wash with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel.

Face Brush: Clariosnic Mia 2. $169

http://www.sephora.com/mia-2-skin-cleansing-system-P296898?skuId=1886746&icid2=products%20grid:p296898

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 ย 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 ย 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. ย 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: ย Lotus Youth Preserve by Fresh. $45

img_1679

http://www.sephora.com/lotus-youth-preserve-eye-cream-P392865?skuId=1685908&icid2=products%20grid:p392865

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

http://www.sephora.com/sugar-face-polish-P12295?skuId=562082&icid2=products%20grid:p12295

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)

img_1676

https://www.marykay.com/en-us/products/skincare/satin-lips-set-expired-180301

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.
