Today I have stepped into the #pincommunity ! It was always something I wanted to be a part of but never thought I could. Until today.
I had designed these pins a while ago and in my head I had been talking myself out of it.”not good enough” “why waste your time?” “who is gonna buy it?” BUT THEN I told myself to shush and JUST DO IT! Also because I was just tired of working for other people and not getting the chance to be creative. I needed an outlet and something to work towards.
It all started with me watching the Netflix series, THE OA and binge watching and then going onto ETSY to search for some OA pins to add to my mini collection. Well… There wasn’t anything. Really, there was nothing. (currently 3/10/17 There are some art/sketches and a pillow case) Still not much and nothing I could wear out. I sketched out Prarie doing one of the five movements and sent it out along with 4 other designs that I asked my friends on Instagram to vote for.
As soon as I received my pins I went out to take photos (might not be the best because the sun was going down and my baby was still asleep!LOL) I had a feeling I wouldn’t get much time to shoot anyways so I went along with it and posted it up on my ETSY site the next day.
Within a day I got an order. The next day I got two pin orders. Today I had my studio sample sale in DTLA and I had 7 transactions and 5 were just PINS!! I might just turn out to be the PIN lady and not the PAPER lady I was dreaming of! LOL
Either way, I am super excited about how it came out (and have a few more idea’s in the works) and wanted to share them with you! These went up three days ago. Please take a peek and let me know what you think! Would really love to hear from you.
If you get a chance, stop by my ETSY shop and give it some love! Pin it, like it, save it!
I was on Shopbop and browsing my ❤️’s and saw that everything that was in there was PINK ! ( I am chuckling ) Its my younger self cheering for some color this Spring. Especially this PINK one. If you didn’t know, it was on the runway a LOT this past year. Here is a link. And here and here
SO I whipped up this little post cus I thought it would look cute!
GAHHH I gotta stop! LOL
The items I selected for him are with my husband in mind. He loves techy things and I went with the wireless bluetooth ear buds, the cool chords OR maybe he wants to go the fashion route and get a nice pair of boots he is always talking about.And I know he loves the basics since he will wear it forever like this sweatshirt! He needs a new denim jacket. The one he has now is ummmm… we dont speak of it.
The sale we have been waiting for is finally here again! The one sale that we are always looking forward too! LOL #amiright ?!
I did a small haul recently (am kinda glad I only bought a couple of things and not a whole lot!) and made a video to show you.
Cat mask! I mean common~ Its a cat eye mask! Too cute and sells at Sephora, had to add it to my basket. it CC+, I have been using this for my everyday has spf and enough coverage to go out locally.Great time to stock up on my basics! Kopari, I am just curious! My skin has been super dry recently and I like the idea of coconut oil on it. NARS holiday kiss limited edition lipstick is sold out right now…don’t know when it will be back but I hope I get one! Needed to get a stronger mask and Dr Brandt, seems like he can do the job! These Cover FX‘s are also always sold out and its not the color I originally wanted (sunkissed) but am willing to try this Moonlight. Lastly the Anastasia Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette, this one JUST came back into stock. Absolutely love the idea of having red hues on my eyelids.
Hopefully they will all still be there when I go to buy them!

The ever so talented illustrator and friend Esther has collaborated with Korean cosmetic line IPKN. The limited edition 2nd collection came out a while ago and I wanted to show you how I have been using the palette and powders and all in a mini video.
These are products that she gifted to me, if I had known about them sooner I would’ve bought the whole collection (will leave where you can buy it if you live outside of Korea in a link down below) Not only the adorable packaging, but the colors are also just perfect that you will be using it daily…..you WANT to be seen using it! Too cute not to!
