My Blood Sugar Palette Review

This palette was a HUGE HIT FOR ME. I’ve been practicing eye looks with almost all the colors and it is my favorite Jeffree Star Cosmetics palette. DEFINITELY BUY OR PRE-ORDER THIS PALETTE ON JEFFREESTARCOSMETICS.COM OR AT BEAUTYLISH! YOU CAN DO SO MANY LOOKS WITH THIS PALETTE DESPITE YOUR MAKEUP STYLE!

I’m in love with my Favorite Hollywood Glam Pinup/ Burlesque “Terminally Delightful” Drag Queen, Miss BenDeLaCreme

    In my article “My Top Three Favorite Drag Queens,” I didn’t include the fabulous Ben De La Creme because even though she is definitely one of my all time favorite drag queens, I felt she needed an article post all to herself.

Here is a little information about Ben de la creme and why I love her:

   First off, when I first saw her on RuPaul’s drag race, she came out and introduced herself and stated that Ben de la creme  is “terminally delightful” which I thought was brilliant. I instantly loved her look and fashion and fell in love immediately with her personality. Because of her wonderful personality, she won “Miss Congeniality” on Season 6.  Every time I watch anything with De La, she instantly makes my smile and laugh, whether I’m in a sad mood or not.

Another reason I love DeLa is because her performances include COMEDY, BURLESQUE, (WHICH OF COURSE I LOVE AND AM OBSESSED WITH BECAUSE I’M A BURLESQUE PERFORMER AS WELL) and ALL AROUND GLAMOUR, including PINUP GLAMOUR, (WHICH OF COURSE IS RIGHT UP MY ALLEY TOO!)

I wish Ben De La Creme was my brother or my sister because of all the things we  have in common. He is so gorgeous as a man and as a woman.

ONE OF MY WISHES AND GOALS IS TO DO A DOUBLE BURLESQUE STYLE ROUTINE WITH BEN DE LA CREME AND TO DO A DOUBLE HOLLYWOOD PINUP SHOOT WITH HER!   

I CAN’T WAIT TO MEET Ben De La Creme at RUPAUL’S DRAG CON in Los Angeles in May!

MISFIT MOMBIE BOOTIQUE

16831138_1863834850518032_921103369817763579_n
   I met Denise Sierra about two months ago through a group called, “Glamour Ghoul Gang,” which is a group that my friend Sandy Ramirez of Pretty Ghouls invited me to, and I’m glad she did. I normally don’t care about group pages on facebook but Glamour Ghoul is a fun group with very nice people and is all about horror-inspired things such as fashion, beauty, art, and more.
   Denise has an online shop called ‘Misfit Mombie Bootique,” which is such a cute name and makes incredible pieces including coffin shaped hand mirrors with liquid. When I saw these mirrors, I instantly wanted one. They looked so cool and  unique. When I first messaged Denise about placing an order, she was very sweet and asked me questions on what I wanted in the mirror such as the imagery and colors. I think it was very nice for her to customize it for me because that’s not always the case when shopping and buying online. Of course for my main color I chose red, my favorite. For the image I wanted in my mirror I chose Sherri Moon Zombie but chose a picture of her that you don’t see a lot compared to her other movie character pictures.
   This mirror is fabulous and I love how Denise made it. The quality is wonderful and she puts effort into every single detail. The movable liquid has different charms, sparkles, and glitter in it which gives it a really cool look. The prices for this Bootique are very reasonable as well which I always love. I really appreciate that even with a custom order, you get your order delivered to you pretty fast.               
   Here is my stunning Sherri Moon Zombie coffin hand mirror.

   Here are also a few other pieces from Misfit Mombie below. Besides hand mirrors, Misfit Mombie Boutique also makes and sells, pins, boxes, jewelry, and a lot more. She also does other themes such as music and movies.

   After I asked Denise if I could do a review on my site here, I also asked for a little bio about herself and her shop which I enjoyed learning. I’m always fascinated how people begin something and what inspires them. Here is how Denise and Misfit Mombie Bootique got started. Enjoy.
  “Hi! My name is Denise. I own Misfit Mombie Bootique. I was born and raised in Texas. I am a mother to four boys and two grand boys that I call my gremlins. I am a huge horror fan. Since I was a young girl I’ve always loved watching horror movies. My favorite holiday is Halloween! I just love the fall and everything about it. Most of my items are Halloween and/or horror inspired. 
    I started experimenting with resin in 2013. It started when I was looking for arts and crafts to do with my youngest son. I somehow came across resin crafting. I instantly got hooked. (Even though my very first pour was a fail. Lol!) I would go out and folks would approach me and ask me where I got my jewelry from and it inspired me to start selling my items. 
    For me, the best part is having all these wonderful ghouls love my work and wear it or display it proudly. I love being able to customize my pieces for my customers so they have something that reflects their personality. My only hope is that I can continue to perfect my craft and continue to grow my business.”
   I definitely recommend checking out, ” Misfit Mombie.” I’m very glad I found her “Bootique,” and that I met her.  Check it out, place a custom order, and enjoy!

ASA KAFTANS

Every once in a while, I enjoy watching the Bravo show, “Shahs of Sunset,” and Asa is my favorite. Her family business is amazing and her taste in fashion is superb. I’ve been wanting to get one of her kaftans for awhile now and I’m so glad I finally got one. I bought the short POSITANO kaftan. I loved all the colors and that there was an animal print design element to it. Nordstrom sells her clothing but I wanted to get one off her official site. The prices are great for this clothing. It ranges because of the different lengths of the kaftans. The prices are especially great because of all the detailing she puts into her clothing from jewels to sequins and more. My birthstone is the Emerald so I donned all my Emerald jewelry with this look. I felt very luxurious!

Another reason I love Asa is because she is all about women empowerment, beauty, confidence, and positive body confidence.

Asa also sells beautiful and sexy accessories which I plan on getting soon. Besides all the stuff Asa sells, she is very sweet when I talk to her online. She is also the kindness and most spiritual woman I know on her show and one of the most spiritual ladies I’ve met online. I’m so glad I met her.

Definitely check out Asa Kaftans at asasoltan.com.

Thank you Asa for your friendship and fabulous clothing!

How to Make Your House Your Home

   I’ve been wanting to do this article for awhile now. I’m not talking about how your house will never be a home unless you have specific items. This article is about not listening to other people who are blatantly telling you what your home should look like, otherwise it wouldn’t be your home, it would be their’s.

To create an environment that you are comfortable and in love with here are a few tips and ideas. First, think about what your personality and interests are. Are you big into sports? Are you a music lover? Do you like Modern art, etc.? 

Also don’t feel that your house has to have one style such as contemporary, modern, etc. I love mixing different styles. I love being creative.

Using my house as an example, my style is not just one thing. I have mostly vintage pieces mixed with rock and roll, movie posters that have great significance to me, a sugar skulls, and a lot of magical pieces and hanging art that both my husband and I did. My house is very eclectic. Even though I have more than one theme to my home style, I’ve made it so it all coincides together.

You don’t necessarily need to have a lot of money when furnishing and decorating your house. If you can afford custom furniture, that’s great but if you can’t, you can still have really cool furniture pieces by DIY.

   For example, you can take a table, like a small TV tray table or a cheap nightstand from good will and decorate it with images that you love from magazines or clippings and then seal them with strong adhesive. I’ve done that in the past and have had great results with it. You can also paint and repurpose furniture. Goodwill, flea markets, Target, and consignment shops are great places to check out and search for hidden treasures if you’re on a budget. If you need help on doing DIY furniture, there are many youtube tutorials that can help you out. This image below is from a DIY youtube channel. You just need to explore different channels.

Another tip is that if you have your home a particular style but find a piece of art, a special object, or something that doesn’t go with your decorative style, but you can’t live without it, definitely buy it. If you really love it, you’ll be able to incorporate into your decorations at your home.

Below are a few items from my home in different genres just to give you an idea how more than one  style can work in your home.

Outfit of the Day

I love showing off my outfits and yesterday I wore this to a doctor’s appointment. I donned my rocking dark blue jeans cuffed, a black and white frill and puffy sleeve blouse, my famous six inch heels, red hoops, and a new hair flower that I had just received. The flower is my favorite part of this look, especially with a victory roll pony tail hair do.

The flower is a beautiful white lily with yellow and green stems, black leaves, and the best part, black spiders. Even with the spiders, because of the colors and design of the lily, the flower clip doesn’t look super gothic or spooky which is nice because it can be versatile with a variety of outfits and looks.

Hope you enjoy these couple pictures of my outfit of the day and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
