Are you in the mood for a personal illustration of yourself, favorite comic character, portraits, landscapes, buildings/architecture, or more? Then I have a wonderful illustrator for you.
It is none other than my husband Nima Sorat. I know I may sound biased but he’s an extremely talented artist and individual. We met at the Academy of Art University in San Fransisco and before he even graduated, he had already established himself as a published illustrator. His first book he did is called, “Monster Attack Network,” and I can’t tell you how proud I was of him when he had his own booth at the San Diego Comic Con!
The second book he did was called, “Graveslinger,” which is one of my favorites. You can find this book plus “Monster Attack Network,” online to purchase and I definitely recommend it. Again, I’m trying to not be biased. Nima’s work is amazing and the writing is fantastic and I’m very proud of his accomplishments.
If you are interested in getting any kind of illustration, paintings, or art work done by Nima, you can comment here below or you canmessage him through his twitter which is https://twitter.com/inqtanq(@inqtanq) and he you can talk about any custom work, commissions, and prices. Definitely check him out and commission him for your next project. You won’t regret it!
My wonderful girlfriend Retro Dee and I decided for our latest collaboration, we would recreate the cute Little Twin Stars that we both loved as a child. For this collaboration, I am LaLa with my pink hair and makeup while Dee portrayed Kiki with her blue and teal hair and makeup. We both made our photos look vintage/polaroid style which look completely amazing. Dee and I look so cute in our matching Little Twin Stars tops as well. Enjoy our photos and stay tuned for the next collaboration, Retro Dee and I already have in the works and make sure to check out her amazing Retro Vintage Blog: retrodee.wordpress.com
The makeup I wore was from my special edition Sugarpill Cosmetics, Little Twin Stars collection, duh. On my eyes, I wore “Sky Candy,” and under my brow bone, I wore “Dream Dust” and “Cloud Maker.” I used my gorgeous La Mer setting powder and on my lips I used the Sugarpill Little Twin Star liquid lipstick in “Lala,” but also did a few extra shots at the end wearing my matching Little Twin Star lipstick in, “Kiki.”
If you love beauty products and shower and bath products, especially organic and natural, then you must go and check out Jumpyjellybeanbathbombs.com. It is an independent business out of Las Vegas and the owner is a sweetheart and creates the most delicious products. This morning I took a nice bubble bath with the heart Plumeria scented bath bomb and I must say, not only are her products natural, they also make your skin feel incredibly soft. Most of you know that I make my own bath and shower salts and scrubs so I rarely buy bath bombs, but this is a business that I greatly believe in, support, and recommend.
I’m also proud to say I’m somewhat apart of this fabulous business and site as well. If you go to purchase anything off the site and drop my name in the promo code box: carliesorat, you’ll get a wonderful discount. You can use my discount on anything on her site from the bath bombs, to the soaps/bath putty, to the valentine gift boxes which is an excellent gift for the upcoming holiday.

Very soon I will be doing a FULL FEATURE AND INTERVIEW with one of my close friends, Kate who started her own beauty and makeup company, PUNK GAL GLAM.
I’m so excited to be an affiliate for my good friend Kate’s cosmetic business, Punk Glam Girl. She is such a sweetie and very talented with the products she put out. I love using her products and plan on taking photos of me wearing some of her goodies to post here. The first items I bought from Punk Gal Glam, were, “See You Next Fall,” which has the cutest different color leaves. The other item I bought with that was, “Punk’s Not Dead,” which has musical notes that look like my foot tattoo. I love them both. Wait until you see me wearing them.
Like I said above, I’ll be doing a full feature on Kate’s business including lots of gorgeous photos and more so stay tuned!

Good morning everyone! I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s video on here even though there were some weird sound issues in the background. Anyways I would like to introduce a new beauty brand that I’m already obsessed with it. It’s called Jolie Beauty and they make cruelty free products. The creator of this company is the the sweetest and answers any questions you may have in the kindest way. So far I have four of their products and because I love you all, I have a coupon code so you can get a nice discount on these wonderful products.
I POSTED THIS FIRST THING ON MY ART SITE: WWW.CARLIEMICHELLESORATARTWORLD.COM BUT WANTED TO POST HERE AS WELL BECAUSE I’M SO EXCITED AND PROUD OF THIS!!!!! YOU CAN NOW WEAR MY ART WORK AS FASHION AGAIN!!!
Thank you to Big Cartel and Metal Works for creating these personalized pins of my art work. We collaborated on what I wanted engraved and the materials I wanted for them and we came up with an amazing product. To start with, two art pieces of mine were chosen. The first one is titled, “LUST” and the second pin you can get is titled, “Rare Oddity.” Both styles are made with strong, sturdy, and beautiful enamel which give a nice gloss to them without being over powering so you can see the art work perfectly without a glare.
Either style retails for $12.00 plus shipping. (THE FIRST 10 PEOPLE WHO PURCHASE A PIN WILL GET A LITTLE SURPRISE AS WELL!)
I’ve always been a huge advocate in artists supporting other artists and I hope everyone enjoys this customized pins! Leave a comment below or hit me up on any of my social media pages to place an order!
I know it’s been awhile since I’ve done a shoot, an article write-up or shot a video for my channel, but it’s because I’ve had a lot of stuff going on in my life and it’s been chaotic. But with that said, I’m back! Yay!
Here’s another sexy and beautiful collab with my pinup sister, Peggy Stone. She’s such a doll. Her and I both love wearing wigs and have a fun wig collection so we decided to do a double shot wig collaboration. While she donned a beautiful teal blue mermaid fantasy wig, I wore my new pink Paige boy wig which I hadn’t worn yet except in my last video where I reviewed Beauty Bakerie for my YouTube channel.
Between the two of us, we look like a beautiful vintage swirl of cotton candy. I hope you enjoy our photos here and stay tuned for more wig shots from both of us and much more content. Wishing you all a great week and see you soon.
Here it is finally, my double BETTIE PAGE COLLABORATION WITH MY PINUP SISTER PEGGY STONE! I’m so glad we got to do these shoots as our first collab together. I know her and I will be doing more soon. We definitely both have the classic Bettie Page essence and aura within us. I love how even though we have different hair colors and different outfits in our photos, they all go together beautifully.
Her photos were taken by Richard Kitchen whose Instagram handle is @rwk_photography. Mine were taken by Nima/Nick Sorat whose Twitter handle is @inqtanq and Nima Sorat on Facebook. Enjoy our double beautiful and fabulous photoshoot.
Thank you Peggy for doing this with me and I simply adore you sis. xoxo
