I’m Candace, the brains behind this operation. Thanks oh so much for stopping by to check out my little piece of this crazy world. When I started this blog my intention was to use it as a “virtual portfolio”, a way to share my love for fashion. Over the first year it evolved into so much more! Turns out, I’ve got just a few more things I’m completely obsessed with! Most of my spare time is spent sketching, sewing, scrapbooking (yes, young people do it too) looking at fashion websites, playing dress up, researching natural beauty tips, sewing, I’m a sucker for DIY projects of any sort…. Oh yeah, I LOVE to travel and absorb different cultures!
“Wardrobe Stylist, Design Dabbler & Beauty Enthusiast”
Encouraging women to look and feel confident in the skin they are in, is the core of my love for styling. Women so often forget that promoting a healthy body image, no matter the physical flaws we see in ourselves is VITAL! Fashion is the truest form of personal expression, an unspoken language projecting how we feel about ourselves. I’ve dabbled with design for almost as long as I can remember and from time to time these sketches actually come to life. By no means can I keep up with actual designers and push out a line a few times a year but I do what I can. The world of cosmetics/beauty is probably what I’m most curious about. My mother always encouraged me to push the boundaries with fashion BUT her idea of fancy makeup is eye liner and mascara. Although I swear by a good eye liner and big lashes, there is a little more to cosmetics and I’m determined to get to the bottom of it all.
