HER-MESS T-SHIRTS!



THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I CREATE A T-SHIRT AND ACTUALLY SALE IT!!! ONE OF THE THINGS I REALLY WASN'T SURE WAS THE QUALITY OF THE FABRIC BUT I WAS ALSO WORRIED ABOUT THE PRICE AS FOR NOW THESE WILL BE THE T-SHIRTS I UNFORTUNATELY CAN'T CUSTOMIZE MY LABELS SO IT WILL BE THE T-SHIRT'S MANUFACTURER NAME BUT I'M TRULY COUNTING ON YOUR FEEDBACK. I WILL THEN DO MY BEST TO FIX THEM OR FIND A BETTER SUPPLIER. IF SOME OF YOU DON'T WANT TO PAY SHIPPING FEES I'M THINKING TO MAKE A BIG ORDER WITH DIFFERENT SIZES SO IF YOU ARE INTERESTED PLEASE INBOX ME AND LET ME KNOW BECAUSE I DON'T FEEL LIKE ORDERING 100 OF THEM AND THEN HAVE NO ONE BUYING!!

THE COMPANY I'M WORKING WITH IS MONTREAL BASED AND SHIPPING SHOULD BE FAST. IN CASE YOU DON'T GET YOUR T-SHIRT PLEASE CONTACT THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE IN CHARGE OF SHIPPING/HANDLING. 

THE T-SHIRTS ARE USUALLY MADE A BIT BIGGER THAN YOUR ACTUAL SIZE AND ALSO THE SLEEVELESS TANK TOP ARE ONLY IN LARGE AND XLARGE BECAUSE THEY ARE JUNIOR FIT SO THEY SHOULDN'T BE ULTRA LARGE. I WILL SOON ORDER SOME FOR MYSELF BECAUSE I HONESTLY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE IN REAL LIFE... I MADE IT AVAILABLE ONLINE BUT JUST TO BE SAFE STICK TO THE T-SHIRT FOR NOW...

THANK YOU!!!

HERE IS THE SITE, THE WEBSITE IS SAFE AND SHOP!!! I WILL SOON CREATE OTHER DESIGNS AND MORE PRODUCTS BESIDES T-SHIRTS!!!

The Chanel Affair



 My birthday was early in this month and lately I don't get any gifts... because I apparently have an expensive taste yet only my grandfather remembers that this girl loves chocolates! So for the past few years I enjoy making myself a birthday gift. This year I opted for a new Coco Chanel eau de toilette and a Chanel lipstick :) It's actually the first time I buy Chanel makeup (I've been very loyal to my Dior diva role)

Step by step eyebrow tutorial


Step 1: Apply a brow fix such as a wax pen and also apply some concealer under the eyebrow to shape them a bit.
Step 2: Draw the first line under with a small angle brush and eyebrow powder. 


Step 3: Draw the upper line.
Step 4: Fill in between both lines 


Step 5: Give a better definition to the end of your eyebrow and the beginning.
Step 6: Apply a clear eyebrow gel to conceal the powder (optional)



It's very important to respect your eye shape when it contouring your eyebrows. As I like to say the eyebrows are the frame of your face. Defining your eyebrows will drastically change your image. Keep in mind that it's almost impossible to have both eyebrows looking exactly the same. We are not meant to be perfect!







My eyebrows are far from being perfect but these products have truly improved their look! I hope my tutorial helps you :)

Fashion illustration: fashion icons & street style





I very much enjoy sketching, it's truly my favourite hobby and I was recently excited to the possibility of getting paid for doing this. Unfortunately, it never happened but I'm still hopeful another door will open! Here are some of recent creations. I get very inspired by fashion icons and street styles.

Look of the day: Black and Blue









I'm finally wearing my blue Jeffrey Campbell boots!!! I bought these at the exhausting Editorial sale... and here they are! They're a bit tricky to wear because the opening at the top is quite narrow so it only works with leggings or skirts, dresses and shorts. I wanted to do a very minimalistic outfit, just two colors and simple geomotry pieces. Can you believe I'm wearing a leather one suit! (short and top one piece) I also got this on sale ;)Anyways, I'm truly happy with these pictures , they reflect very well the outfit! A simple black and blue look.

Look of the day: Mirrored Blue Sunglasses






For the longest time I was looking for mirrored blue sunglasses (also cheap)... you know I have to save ma money for my future right... Anyways I found these in D-TOX !!! It's quite amazing how this place has some key pieces at such a low price! I've rediscovered this store and so far I'm quite happy to be saving cash for cheap t-shirts and awesome shades! 

Looking at these pictures now... it looks like I was in a fourth of July thematic... hihihi 
I just felt like wearing my long time unworn red pants :) I also love this sweater from Mango because it's so comfy and I love knits (even in summer) and let's not forget my heavy zara necklace!

Asian Skincare Products





After watching so many YouTube makeup tutorials from Michelle Phan, I looked more into Asian collagen masks and after asking on Facebook (where to buy), I finally found a place in Montreal to buy them!!! My sister says I'm a freak for getting collagen masks when I don't even have wrinkles.... But I rather start nurturing my skin now, then to wait until I'm 50 full of wrinkles and opting for botox... no thanks!

So this past weekend I went to C&C, a Korean cosmetic boutique located in downtown Montreal. This store had everything I was looking for, from masks to double eyelid stickers! 
For those who don't know what double eyelid stickers, they basically help to fix your eyelid... it's a bit hard to explain without a visual... but I will show you all how to use them later on.

As for my collagen masks and eyelid patches, I'm truly loving them! You look like a serial killer from a horror movie but it's worth it! Your skin is fresh, clean and your cells will thank you :)

Fear of Aging



Last week after shopping at Sephora it truly hit me that my birthday was coming up... I just couldn't realize that an entire year had passed by!


I tend to get a bit nostalgic when it's my birthday because it brings back so many childhood memories and it also makes me over think about my grey future. This was the first ring my father gave me and it's been on that finger ever since.

I titled this post "fear of aging" not because I'm scared of wrinkles or anything along those lines but more because I feel the pressure of growing. This year has been very unusual for me because my life tends to have a crazy rhythm... school, work or even both and ever since high school my life has revolved around design. However, this year I truly took a break from everything and I've been simply working (not in design). It's been tough sometimes not feeling like I'm fulfilling the young adult social profile, enrolled in university or working in my field... But I think my life needed this break.

Everyone keeps telling me that my time will come and that I'm still very young... I fear of aging and not being where I dream to be. I hate feeling comfortable and I guess this year I need to push harder in putting money towards my future.  

This is my mami and me for my one big year of life :)


My parents have kept my first pair of shoes !!!
I know that growing is inevitable but I guess not being sure of how your future will be scares me...
It's been a year that I've let my life flow without having a degree or job restriction just saving and inspiring myself. Thanks to those that read my blog :)
