My latest DIY was inspired by the Victoria Secret fashion show. It is soon to air on television showing off the latest and greatest undergarment styles. I'm going to show you how easy and inexpensive it is to recreate those fantastic Bras, including the oh so famous Angel feather bra.
Grab a few of your favorite bras, glass crystals, feathers, tweezers and glue. You will be able to create a sexy, stylish bra, with zero fear of the exposure undergarmemts often make.
My favorite glue to use for crystals is the E-6000. You can find this adhesive at your local Michael's or Joann fabrics store. It will cost you around 6 dollars a tube. I also recommend using Swarovski Elements or Crystazzi jewels also found at Michael's and Joann Fabric's. You can find these crystals quite inexpensive and even cheaper with the posted sales and coupons. I get super happy when I get to combine coupons with sales.
How to apply the crystals
Step 1 Decide where you want to place your crystals on case. Squeeze a small amount of glue onto a paper plate and use a toothpick to pick up a small amount of glue and place on case.
Step 2 Using tweezers, pick up crystal and place on glue and press to set.
Step 3 Continue gluing each crystal onto case.
Step 4 Check crystals for security.
Recently I've been wearing my eyeglasses more often than my contacts. Maybe it's because it's easier and more convenient with my busy schedule. Or perhaps it's because I struggle with dry eye, allergies, and migraines. A very miserable combination, making contact wearing no fun. Also the unfortunate side of wearing glasses made me sometimes feel dorky, boring, lazy, invisible, and sometimes unstylish. Me being the fashionista that I am found that unacceptable! So I decided to get change that. Using my creativity and leftover crystals from a previous project I was able to give my eyewear a "one of a kind" fashionable boost..
My eyewear is now fresh, stylish, and trendy without having to buy a new pair. You can make them ultra glam or slightly different. I used a combination of Swarovski Crystals and very inexpensive glass crystals purchased from Michael's Craft Store. Below are a few of my creations, before and after.
I have been editing my acting reel recently and am not sure if it's done. I would love to get your opinion on what you think. Is it too long, short, missing something, etc...
It doesn't matter if you've never seen an acting reel. You know what's interesting to watch. I just want to keep your attention long enough to see most of my talent onscreen.
Just click on the photo. That will open a new page to my youtube account to see my first edit.
Like most actors you have another job or five to keep the money flowing. One of my side jobs is working for Clinique as an Associate Consultant (Make-up Artist). I am surrounded by so many brands and products. Here are a few of my favorite pieces that definitely impress and make me a happy customer.
I am in love with Lancôme's Blush. It has three shades that you can contour, shade, and highlight not only your cheeks but entire face. It also has a slight shimmer that gives your skin a healthy youthful glow. It has been giving me the touched by sun look.
My other two favorites are Lancôme's eye brow pencil and liquid liner. Two of the biggest trend this summer. Defined brows and the classic cat eye. My favorite combo, you can't have defined lashes without the defined brow.
Working for Clinique I have to share my most favorite products, cause lets face it I love them all. I am so excited about Clinique's Water Proff Mascara. This is not something I just use in the summer time for the poolside. I need it because my allergies are so bad that I deal with watery eyes on a daily basis. I find most water proof mascaras harsh and pull out my eyelashes. Not Clinique's formula! It comes off so much easier with eye makeup remover than I experienced in the past. This is a definite must have.
I also want to share my fondness for Clinique's CC Cream. It is an amazing combo of products in one. It's your moisturizer, sunscreen, light foundation (or primer) that also color corrects your skin. And I can not forget to mention that it's oil free. It's perfect for everyone especially those that are too busy, lazy, have kids, seriously the list could go on and on. I keep it in my purse so I can reapply it throughout the day.
I I can't forget to mention Clinique's Redness Solutions Powder. It is the best powder to use during the summer if you battle with any redness in the skin, even redness caused from the sun. It's made with the probiotic technology to fight redness and includes caffeine to tighten those veins that also appear with redness. It's very natural looking too because it just gives you a light veil. I use this mineral powder throughout the day.
Lipstick! Oh how I love lipstick. And lately I have been into the really bright colors. Pinks, reds, fluorescents you name it. Here are two of my favorite shades!
Lancôme's Rouge In Love lipstick shade number 340. It has a very creamy texture that's moisturizing with lasting power.
Yves Saint Laurent has an incredible bright pink with a touch of fluorescent. It's their Rouge Pur Couture in shade number 7. It is just Barbie fantastic. It should only be worn when you are feeling fun, daring, and sexy.
My latest blog is inspired by a close friend of mine requesting me to spice up her newly purchased designer jeans (because lets face it... sometimes even designer styles can use a little help). She loves the comfy-chic fit through the waist, butt, hips and thighs, but at the knees, this pair veers outward into a bell-bottom look that just isn't her. So for this blog, I'm going to first show you how to reign in that extra material to create a flattering, "boyfriend" cut jean, then I'll give you some embellishment ideas that keep them distinctly girlfriend.
I worked on two sets of jeans. One the first pair we decided to get rid of the flared hem to a skinny cut. We also felt that they needed just a smidgen of character to read unique softly. First thing I did was sew in the outer side seams evenly. Getting rid of the 70's bell into the 80's punk. I had Kerry put the jeans on inside out so I could mark the jeans to her body shape. Having your clothes tailored to your own body is really what everyone should do. Seriously...a major no brainer.
Adding the touch of Kerry was actually quite easy and really fun. I was wearing a grey crystalled bracelet that I took off and it stretched out to be un-wearable. So what better then to add them to her jeans. They measured out perfectly trimming the front two pockets. After that, I took some of my bedroom wall paint and finger painted it on the belt seam and back pocket embroidery. This gave the jeans the subtle touch of high end couture.
The Second pair we really didn't need to do much. BUT we wanted to do something. They have so much character On their own: Motorcycle Chick meets Hollywood Rock Star. So going with that why not add a few silver studs to the back pockets. So we did.
Looks awesome right!? It's super easy to do. I purchased these iron on studs from Michaels craft store and it took minuetes to apply.
I have been meaning to stud a pair of jean shorts like these for some time now (Since last fall). And with summer approaching the timing couldn't be any better.
Studding the back pocket is very quick an easy. I used iron on studs and purchased from Joann Fabrics. And used an old pair of high waisted Guess jeans I recently found from high school. A perfect pair to use now that the high waists are on the trend back. It only took an hour for the whole process of ironing on the studs.
So if you are looking to trend up your current wardrobe fast. This is one of the ways you can!
Here is a close up picture of the studs and self stick gems (Darice).
