Sugar Show Part II and a perfect Debut for LSD Fashion LAB

If you see yourself, don't forget to TAG YOURSELVES!!!!

Check out the latest photos from the Sugar Art and Fashion show part Deuce! Timmery Turner has created an annual show featuring several designers which attracted more than 300 guests. The night was filled with emerging local designers who was not afraid to follow their dreams and take risks.
I couldn't have asked for a better opportunity to debut my latest designs from the new and reinvented LSD Fashion LAB collection than to have it make history at the 2nd Sugar Art and Fashion show.

Model/Hairstylist: So far, she is the face and hair of LSD Fashion LAB, Ann-Marie Hoang and my main hairstylist for the models that night. You all may know her by her signature "Afro Queen Asian fusion"  hair and her edgy "Audrey Hepburn" LA style. Be sure to check out her new blog for those who want to be apart of this FRO.non.me.NON and get the latest hairstyle trend updates here at ChainsNchocolates. Last but not least, you can find Ann-Marie, the Mad Color chemist, hustlinn at Louis Lacari .

MUA: The amazing Amanda Mendoza came to the rescue, I showed up to the show a tad late and realized that half of my models weren't fully covered in makeup!  2 of the MUA's backed out last minute and everyone was already busy working on other models.  It was like an episode of a MUA 911 (if there were to be one), I was sweating balls and thought my models were going to be walking down that runway w/o anything done to their face (SRSLY right?!?!). That's when Amanda came running through the door (rambo style) with her gigantic makeup duffle bag struggling to get her directors makeup chair through the doorway (or whatever it's called) and LITERALLY SAVED THE DAY! Yes, there was definitely a moment of silence. Thanks again Amanda! If you ever need a MUA who is not afraid to go creative on her skills, you can email her at artistry.makeup247@gmail.com 

The models who literally KILLED the runway rockin my latest accessories from LSD Fashion LAB at the second annual Sugar Art and Fashion show!! . Thanks ladies!

Here's to the kids-Written by someone that was inspired

Here's to the kids.

Here's to the kids who love more than they fight but they're too afraid to show it. The ones that replay every conversation they have to analyze how dumb they sounded.

Here's to the kids who live their lives through song lyrics because it's the first time they've ever felt like they're not alone. The kids who drown themselves in pages and pages of fictional characters in novels they wish they could live in; who dream of being someone else, somewhere else, sometime else.

Here's to the kids who fall short no matter how hard they try. To whoever has been misunderstood. To whoever has been talked about like they weren't there.

Here's to the kids.

Here's to the kids who dream with saline raindrops on their cheeks and proverbial (or not so proverbial) cuts on their wrists. The kids who dream of being something amazing but don't think they can be.

Here's to the kids who are constantly told by magazines that they're not beautiful. To the ones who think they're never going to ever really find someone; who think that sometimes maybe it's just not worth it.

Here's to the kids who live for movies because for that two hour lapse of time, they can believe in true love and soul mates and happy endings. The kids who close their eyes and try to just forget.

Here's to the kids who have fallen into a scene, not because it's cool or different, but because it has things and people they truly love. The ones who want to be noticed but at the same time are afraid of the recognition.

Here's to the kids.

Here's to the kids who want to go so far but they feel so stuck. The ones who never want to end up in an office job. The ones who are afraid that's exactly where they'll be.

Here's to the kids who love the music more than the fashion, and the emotions more than the reactions. The kids who write their problems but don't show a soul.

Here's to the kids that don't know who they are, and were never told that's okay.

Here's to the kids who are afraid of best friends. The kids who are afraid of love. The kids who have had broken hearts more than they can count.

Here's to the kids.

Here's to the kids who can't let anything go because living in the past is easier than being terrified of the future. To whoever has lost someone they loved only to get them back, but feel as if they're not worth that person's time. To whoever has lost someone and realized it was because it was their fault. To whoever has lost someone for no reason.

Here's to the kids who have lost someone, period.

Here's to the kids who have never been in love.

Here's to the kids who have never been kissed with it meaning anything. The kids who have never held hands with someone who felt anything for them. The kids who break a little inside everyday.

Here's to the kids who work hard but everyday see at least one other person who is ten times better than them.

Here's to the kids whose daily lives are lies. Whose smiles hold back a sob. Whose sparkling eyes hold back tears. Whose laughter holds back an overflow of the need to escape.

Here's to the kids who are just like me.

Our Eyemask from the Love Sex and Diamonds Collection captured all eyes from around the world!

Ok, I'm not sure how it works but I was pretty flattered and overly excited to find one of my featured items on Urban Outfitters BLOG!.....dude, it's Urban Outfitters!  Although they only had a few things to say about the Chained and Wired up Eye Mask, I really couldn't ask for more than some exposure, recognition and more traffic coming in and out of my store. After just one post from UO, many other bloggers hopped on the band wagon and fell in LOVE with our eyemask <3.

All the way from Poland comes a blog from Zeberka's blog, not sure what they had to say about it but there were sure a lot of comments.

Trend Hunter featured our Chained and Wired up Eye Mask on their page and nobody explained  it better than they did,  "These specs are for only the most eccentric of fashionistas and scream Lady Gaga to a tee. "

The Lipstick Diaries LOVES US! They know how it is when girls go to a club thinking they're the only one's with that dress on then come to realize that they are SO WRONG! After seeing our one of a kind uniquely hand made mask,  "
No one will definitely have these at a club with you".

Things to buy yourself on Valentines day

If you're like me and have friends who would rather buy you things they "think you need" than the list of things you gave them, here's your chance to go treat yourself on V-day and buy what you want.  WILDFOX COURTURE has endless tanks and tee's that will make you go GAaaa.  Check out the awesome Wildfox The Lady is a Vamp Cutoff Tank, who doesn't "need" this? :)

OMG and HOW COULD I FORGET ABOUT THE Rubber Duck boots??!?!! For the last XXXXX years, I've been so distracted by the well known UGG boots that I've forgotten all about these adorable Rubber Duckies! We all know that Ed Hardy won't stop their mass production anytime soon, the Crocs that still walk the streets although they were meant for wearing in your backyard and the UGG boots that keep coming back EVERY summer ("Commonly worn with 4 inch skirts by girls with close to zero self-esteem."), so this Valentines day, let's start cleaning up and move on with our lives.

80's Purple has a few selections for you to check out, it's the SnowJoggers we all love – with a twist. The furry insulation and the padded upper makes them both comfortable and warm and the new ‘Duck Tread’ outsole ensures an exceptional traction.

Valentines day gift cheat sheet pt. 1

On Valentines day, every girl dreads opening their gifts in front of their loved ones yet to find another box containing a heart shaped locket or pendant from one of those overplayed jewelry commercials.  So this year, instead of getting your boo what you think they want, why not try to 1up them and be a lil bit more creative and put a little twist on that traditional V-day gift. Here's my first list of fun lovable goodies:

SWEET NOTHINGS NECKLACE ($40) These cheeky and charming necklaces feature cute phrases that range from the sweet to the kooky! Hand engraved by cult-favorite Brooklyn boutique In God We Trust, the brass pendants are an exclusive creation. Choose from 9 different styles...and hey what gf/mother of your child wouldn't want a necklace that says Baby Mama? ;)

Unlock my heart pendant w/ key ($36) This retro classic heart necklace has a 14kt goldplated charm that is nearly 2” across and also comes with matching key at the clasp that you can remove & give to your fave guy. 20” brass chain.
Perhaps this is a gift you can give to your BFF. This cute handpainted wooden teapot is coupled with a clear ruby red heart charm and suspended on an 18" gold plated chain. When I get all steamed upHear me shout "Tip me over and pour me out!"

- Handmade jewellery by JBee! -

Stump Ring The Stump ring is available in solid oxidized sterling silver. The Valentines version is available with any two sets of initials engraved inside the heart (HOW EFFEN CUTE IS THAT???!!) $210 w/ initials and $170 w/o.http://www.digbyandiona.com/system/0000/1166/stump_heart.jpg

Fashion Icon of the day: Jane Birkin and her hot pants

Jane Birkin lived a life that any fashionista would love & is so stylish that Hermes named a bag after her. Famed for her trademark accessory (yes, that wicker basket) and her <3 affair wFrench singer-songwriter, actor and director, Serge Gainsbourg; she is probably best-known for duetting on Gainsbourg’s ‘Je t’aime…moi non plus’. Let's take a look back at some of her most iconic moments after the jump:

Ombré de nails

After giving two shots at trying to get the ombré look on my head, I've decided to experiment the ombré look on my nails. Here's attempt #1 at my version of the OMBRE NAILS:   I first tipped it with the turquoise polish then a layer of the clear Essie Matte About You top Coat, another stroke of the turquoise and topped it off with the last layer of the matte clear coat to make the color blend...you get the idea ;P  I guess I could've done a better job by not getting the polish on the cuticles but I was just so excited to see the outcome!

More Ombre's to come ;)
