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!

My first model Jacquelyn, also a fellow creative!The lovely Store Associates & Clients.

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.

  • 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.

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

Sunglasses Trend

Hey Friends!

Happy Tuesday! another week to be productive, get things done and live your life. Also have you guys seen all the awesome sunglasses that are  trending?

OMG! so many retro, round, big styles that celebrities, influencers and other peeps  are wearing now a days. I feel like every time I’m on Instagram or Pinterest I run into a post of someone wearing some great shades.

My metallic pair of fave sunnies ran out of time, R.IP! So I started doing my research for some new ones and on Pinterest I  found an awesome and affordable company of sunnies called ZeroUV .

I found some great sunglasses! Great for both men and women. I liked the presentation of their website and all their social media channels. When I subscribed to their mailing list they sent me a coupon to use for my first purchase.

Keeping it real I was a bit afraid of purchasing my sunnies online. I usually get them from local boutiques or random shopping adventures but after seeing all their great reviews, I took the leap and BAM!! done deal.

I found this retro hippie oversized round ones. They are so cool, and I really wanted a piece that made a statement. I have worn them a couple of times and have gotten great responses.

ZeroUV is very legit, by the way this post is not sponsored by them. I’m just sharing my experience with them and recent sunglasses trends. They are very professional, the package arrived on time and secured. The glasses arrived in a small box, wrapped very carefully in a plastic bag and it came with the microfiber bag to keep them safe and clean.

Here are some of my looks with my new retro sunnies!

Simply Casual

Hey Friends!

The weekend is almost here guys, so let’s keep pushing and finish the week strong. Today I wanted to share with you guys one of my cozy simply outfits.

Kathy Blog 5

As much as I love to dress up sometimes, and change my style a little bit here and there. There are days that I just want to be casual. I love a cute t-shirt, some stretch denim and of course my favorite sneakers.

Kathy Blog 4

About two weeks ago I found this cute graphic tee at Francesca’s Boutique. I usually don’t wear t-shirts with statements on it, but I kinda liked what it said. It’s very comfortable, flowy and not heavy at all. I believe the fabric is a mixture of polyester and rayon.

IMG_7818

I like to wear a lot of denim, usually dark denim but I found this washed out stretchy  jeans at Styles for less. Since I am not very tall I have to fold the bottom of  my jeans so I can have a proportioned outfit. My cute bag is actually a phone that it works haha and it’s from Betsey Johnson.

Tip: No matter what, always add a statement accessory to your outfit.

Mint in Spring!

Pastels are huge during this season, but what’s trending right now is MINT. I love anything mint and when I saw this low top Adidas Gazelles, “I died” like my fashion icon Rachel Zoe would say.

I have been a lover of Adidas since I was 12. I worked as a sales associate years ago and learned so much about the brand. There are so many great sneaker brands out there, but Adidas always has a special place in my heart. Their quality is great and designs are very unique in comparison to others in my opinion.

Gazelles started as a sport shoe. It was a performance shoe for a while , but later on it translated more into the fashion industry  by people wearing them more in their daily outfits. I found this great article in regards to the history of this shoe if you want to read more about it. http://www.complex.com/sneakers/2016/07/adidas-gazelle-history

A little throwback to the 90’s this gazelles are pigskin leather, it has the triple stripes detail on the sides. Trefoil logo on the tongue of the shoe and heel tab. Very comfy, and wearable with a variety of pieces.

Thank you guys for taking the time and reading this post. Hope you guys have a great weekend.

Latest Closet Faves!

Happy February Darlings!!

I hope you guys had a great Valentines, whether you are in a relationship, married, single or not remember you are worthy, loved and you have purpose. It’s been a very busy month, but today Saturday morning I woke up inspired to share some of my favorite faves.

I try to be conscious about what I purchase , last month I focused on just items that I needed and that would make a statement. As much as I love shopping, I am trying to focus on buying items that I only need. I hope this post inspires you to keep shopping for the things you need, to get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Also this post is not sponsored by any of these companies, I just wanted to share with you guys my latest shopping experience and the great items I found.

*1st Fave*

Bell Sleeve Shift Dress Yellow by Xhilaration™ from Target

It’s a 100% Rayon

V neck

Long, set bell sleeve with a funky feel

at knee-length and it has pockets! it’s a very fun wearable dress for a day out or a nice date.

It’s kind of challenging for me to wear prints sometimes since I like more of basics colors, but when I found this dress it caught my eye and it was only $27.99.  Perfect item for the spring season coming up!

(booties from Kohl’s)
