Live Drawing At Vera Bradley

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to illustrate live at one of the many stores that Vera Bradley has. The store where I illustrated is located in Orlando, FL. inside one of the most popular malls; The Florida Mall. I had the pleasure to attend one of the events they had at another location, and I learned so much about the brand. Before the event I visited the store and Jacquelyn the store manager shared with me so much information and facts about the company.

Many fellow bloggers, friends and family members came to visit me. I’m not gonna lie but I was little nervous. As soon as I sketched my first model, I was able to relax a little and get ready for a fun day.

The awesome team from the store created this cute set up for customers, and included the giveaway, products and some snacks.

This was the giveaway! An adventure key necklace, fine point pen set and a sticky note set.

My set up for the day!

Outfit of the day was a cute romper “Coming soon to the blog” and some cute black comfortable booties.

Facts about Vera Bradley: 

  • Founded in 1982 by Patricia Miller and Barbara Bradley Baekgard.
  • The company was started with just $500.
  • Fabrics that the company uses on their products are: quilted cotton, solid microfiber, leather and nylon fabrications.
  • Besides multiple handbags & other accessories, they also produce bedding, swimwear, cover-ups, sunglasses, umbrellas, stationary, tech products and socks.
  • The Vera Bradley Foundation for breast cancer has an annual women’s golf and tennis tournament in Fort Wayne, Indiana to raise funds for breast cancer research.

This was such a fun event. Thank you to this team of ladies who prepared the event, and were my models as well, I had a blast drawing people live, sharing about the brand and making new friends. Thank you also to Vera Bradley for giving me the opportunity and I can’t wait to be part of another great event.

I hope you guys enjoyed this awesome post, don’t forget to visit Vera Bradley at your nearest mall or online, and check out the awesome products that they have. Have a great week and continue to create, share and inspire.

Hello September!!

Hello Friends!

Greetings from Florida. As you all know we have a massive hurricane on the way by the name of IRMA. It’s suppose to hit us by Sunday, and this week has been a bit weird due to all of this happening. We are trying to prepare as much as we can and trusting God that he will keep our state safe. Besides all that happening, it’s a new month! I can’t believe September is here and there is so much happening.

I am looking forward to…

NYFW

The shows, street looks, trends and all the craziness. This year due to the hurricane I couldn’t make it to NY.  I would have love to attend, but my priority is my family and I wouldn’t be able to be at peace knowing that there is so much going here in FL. As for right now I am keeping up with the shows while watching  http://nyfw.com/  and of course on social media.

FALL WARDROBE

                               The color scheme, boots, heavy denim, and flannel shirts.

  THE CHANGE IN LEAVES 

The different tones, sizes and colors of leaves when they fall from the trees. So pretty!

 BALANCE

August was a very busy month, I am very proud of myself because I was consistent with my channel and blog, I did see the growth but I was exhausted.  It is very challenging to work a full time job, working side projects, keep up with social media, create content for YouTube, the blog and having a life. I barely made it to the gym, ate badly and didn’t really have enough sleep. I have noticed that my face has suffered too, so for this month I promise myself to make more time to read my bible, get enough rest, get back into working out, eating healthy and have a balance life. As much as I love being busy and seeing my work grow, it’s not smart to sacrifice my health.

I hope you guys are having a great September so far! Please Subscribe to my blog so you won’t miss any content, and leave me a comment telling me what are you looking forward to this month! Have a great weekend <3

P.S: Check out my recent FALL illustration, a little preview of the process.

1yr. Anniversary

Happy Anniversary!

Hello Friends! Last Friday I celebrated my 1 year anniversary. 1 year of creating content for my blog, YouTube channel and social media platforms.

I did not expect nothing of it. I was in a season of disappointment, lacking motivation but inside I knew I had it in me to start something. I did a lot or research, prayed a lot, reached out to my friend Laila for guidance and a lot of doubts.

1 year of walking into the unknown.

1 year of doubts & fears.

1 year of a lot of late nights.

1 year of many sacrifices.

1 year of planning content.

1 year of exposing my craft to the world.

1 year of new opportunities.

1 year of new friendships.

1 year of learning about myself.

1 year of getting rid of insecurities.

1 year of creating my own happiness.

1 year where I took the best leap of faith.

I am so happy I took the risk and jumped on this wagon. It has been a wild ride but a fun one where the impossible has been possible.

THANK YOU ALL for your support & love throughout this year. I can’t believe how fast it went, but glad I invested and worked hard to see my creative platforms grow and see how it has impacted you guys.

I hope you  are motivated & inspired to take a leap of faith, a risk or go after that dream that has been in your heart. It is worth it just know it takes a lot of work and a lot of patience.

XOXO

Italy is known for their beautiful scenery, vineyards, food, art and culture but also for their taste in fashion. You know how in New York we have New York Fashion Week, in Italy there is also Milan Fashion week where  some of the class brands like Prada, Gucci, and Armani are of Origin. As a fashion influencer and future designer, I have to always be on top of my game. I have to keep up with the latest news in fashion, what’s going on, which new brands are coming out and so on. Sometimes we focus on just looking at Pinterest , Fashion websites or Instagram to know what’s going on in fashion and yeah it is helpful but we need to learn that there is more out there, and that’s why I wanted to create this post and teach you all about Pitti Uomo, so let’s do this!

Pitti Uomo is one of the world’s most important platform’s for men’s clothing,

accessory collections, and for launching new projects for men’s fashion. A four-day event held in Florence, Italy and has been around since 1972. Many retailers, buyers,  editors attend to view the upcoming collections, and since blogging has growing so much, there were many influencers and bloggers that attend the event and share on social media that now it is really well-known.

Recently 1,200 brands presented which draws 25, 000 buyers, and in Italy the govt has upped the quota for the fashion industry from 23 million euros to 24.3 million about 3 years ago according to WWD magazine, they continue to support the fashion industry which is well-known for their great fabrics and tailoring.

were some pretty stylish women that brought their A game! I was very excited to see women represent by looking powerful and also chic. Here is Monika Kaminska  wearing

a RTW harvey suit and looking so sharp. So yeah we as women can rock a dress and a tailored suit as well.

Pretty..Pretty Things!

Hey Friends!

It’s been a pretty month, and when I mean pretty I mean lots of pretty things going around this season like the changes of leaves, the weather, and what everyone is wearing for fall. I like pretty things, example jewelry. Due to all the changes and moving around I can’t really have a lot of things because I gotta give them away or sell them so I try to keep it simple, I know one day I will have a place where I can feel stable and set ground, but as for right now I’ll just go with the flow.

About a month ago, I became a Rocksbox influencer! so what is it? you might be asking, it’s a service where you get really nice rental jewelry from top designer brands monthly for $19.00 a month, once you create your account online and pick different pieces under your wishlist, a stylist gets three pieces and you get them in the mail. If you like the jewelry you can buy if not, you can just return it and get another new box. I think it’s a great service because you can wear the jewelry and not have to worry about spending to much on pieces you don’t wear a lot.  I just got my second box and I really like all the pieces,  so if you are interested on joining this awesome movement and get pretty accessories, I will be adding a promo code at the end that way you can  get your first month for FREE!! yeah for FREE on me!

ROCKSBOX

So you know I had to get creative and illustrate these pieces, you get a cute dark blue box with a pretty ribbon, and when you open it you have an intro note with your name, explanation of the pieces you are getting and how to take care of them.

Every piece comes in a small bag that way it stays safe, and you won’t loose it. You also get a little card with a quote which you can post it  and share with friends. This is the KENDRA SCOTT ELEANOR  necklace in black mother of pearl, I love the simplicity of it, and how it makes a statement, very easy and wearable piece.

blog-1

Yes for those 90’s hair buns if you are rocking them, I love to wear my hair like this because it’s so fun, and I get so many stares is funny. The piece I am wearing in this illustration is a SLATE beyond the horizon necklace in silver. It’s such a cool necklace, and kinda abstract, I wore it to a party and people loved it!

blog-5

I honestly don’t do a lot of accessories on my wrist, I like to keep it simple but this NAKAMOL beaded leather wrap bracelet in silver & cream is a great piece to make it seem like you are wearing a bunch of bangles. It’s very adjustable and an eye catcher.

blog-4

I have really enjoyed all these jewelry, and the membership  perks of it, if you want to try it out use my PROMO CODE: KBCREATIVITYXOXO and get your first month for FREE!  I hope you guys have a great week, and enjoy the pretty things in life.!

Fashion is about something that comes from within you ~Ralph Lauren~

Hello Friends!

I know it’s been a while, it has been so crazy the past few weeks, but I have managed to kinda keep it together. So last Thursday New York fashion week started. If you follow me on any kinda of social media, you know I been keeping  track with all the latest shows. It’s very important for me to keep up with the shows, because I am involved in the fashion industry.  It’s good to know what’s happening, what new designers are out there and also which way is fashion heading. I get a lot of ideas from watching the shows, and thank God for social media because I also get to see what people attending the shows are wearing.

This week I am illustrating all my favorite looks from the shows, I hope you enjoy my art work, and I encourage you to go and do something you love and enjoy. Don’t let the stress, challenges of life  or anything hold you from what you love doing, take a deep breath and go for it. If you also need some tips to get through  a rainy day or week, feel free to check out my YouTube channel Kreadiv Misfit. Enjoy!

My first favorite look from day one was from designer Michael Costello. He is best known from project runway, and has become really well known for his beautiful red carpet dresses. His dresses were amazing, I loved the looks and he used wines, forest greens and blacks for the color scheme. He also incorporated huge flower crowns that the models wore and it made it such an impact on the runway.

My second favorite look was from Nicholas K, I really enjoyed this  show.  Two siblings Christopher & Nicholas Kunz  that have created collections based on their outdoor adventures, and have created some great collections with lots of variety. Their style is very urban, minimalist and comfortable.

The next look that I loved was from Desigual,  I was watching the backstage snaps and it was so much fun because the make up artists, recreated the snapchat animal filters on some of the models and it was kinda of cool. It grabbed the viewers attention since everyone loves those snapchat filters and it made it unique. Desigual knows how to place prints together very well, they are well known for colorful designs. Every look that walked down the runway, it brought life, inspiration and a positive vibe to the atmosphere.

I will be posting more of my favorite looks this week, so stay tune! and if you want to watch any of the shows online check out New York Fashion Week : the shows .

Much love Friends <3
