A Lash Review

Hello My Lovelies, 

Bad Luck Cherry here with a review...One of many actually! but this one is for True Or False Lash company, Yes I have tried them and now I want to let you lovelies in on all the fun! If you lovelies didn't know I am currently in beauty school, yes insert all beauty school drop out melodies and sing along here! In being there I learn about a new  fun product, a friend of mine cued me into this new company of lashes boasting that they are just as good as my old faithful Red Cherry Lashes.  I'm always up for something new so I gave it a go, I was pleasantly surprised at how affordable they where and you know me I'm a glamor girl with tight purse strings so a 1.50$ a pair was just up my ally! 

I have to say the packaging really got me, they are so appealing to a girl like me and as we all know I'm a sucker for packaging.  the fact that they have old photos of cat woman and Betty Davis on their packaging just warmed my heart. so if course I got them...again I'm a sucker so I bought the entire line....well the entire line then, there has sense been a few other additions to the lash family. 

Okay what I have to say about the products is they are really easy to apply and then they are very lightweight, I was pleasantly surprised that after I put them on I forgot about them. Mind you when I wore them it was ungodly hot at a vintage car show and I was melting. I loved the fact that I did forget them, In comparison to other lashes I have used they stand far apart and I really enjoyed wearing them. Now I do have to say that because they are so busy half of my order is on back order so I didn't get to try all of the lashes but I will keep you posted on that front!  One con I will say I had was the shipping cost was a bit much, but that's the way these things go I suppose. Its not enough to detour me from ordering again and surly if that's the only problem I have that says a lot about the product!

In conclusion I would say they are a great product for the price, and if you are interested in them the link is above go check them out! Catch you lovelies later!!! 

As always keep it classy!

A Girl Can Dream Vol. 2

Hello my lovelies, 

This segment of my wish list is a bit different because its full of crafting want to's rather then products I wish for!!! I'm a huge fan of upcycling because when you are in love with vintage like I am well its apart of the deal, many things need a little love and care to make them great again. 

The first is a Jewelry box over haul. I have a box in my room
that needs some piazzas, I've had it a really long time and I've seem some pretty net thinks online on how to make it a peace that not only flatters my vanity but goes with the motif of my bedroom. There are a lot of ideas on how to achieve this look with vintage fabrics and paint colors its really only as limited as my imagination, so when I dream up something fabulous I will be sure to let you all in on the fun.

This Project I thought of and really want to try, its a picture frame jewelery display. I figured it had been done before so I looked it up the first is complements of Doodle Crafts! isn't it just adorable, I have more accessories then I have jewelery boxes to hold them all in. So this is an interesting way to display them and also really freakin cute! I have some lone frames with no backings that need a home, like I said once before I throw nothing away that couldn't have a use later on. Yes I horde crafting supplies and such, it comes in handy once and a while when you least expect it to!

The last is a night stand repaint, I really like the idea of reusing my old night stands perhaps in a different area of my house then my room. I love different patterns and colors though the color scheme in my house my Boyfriend unite and I could agree on was teal, royal blue, black and deep lush purple I think I can come up with something amazing to paint on it. something tough maybe skulls and blue fire....yes there is something you don't know about me kiddies I love Skull imagery!! it has to be the one image I always paint, draw and doodle. so painting it on my night stands seems to me a give in!   

Well that's all for now my lovelies catch you later! and as always keep it classy!

Where O where is my fabric of choice?

Hello My lovelies, 

I am in a snit....I have this lace and I want to make a beautiful dress from it for the Billetproof car show inspired by this dress I saw in an arbitrary web search. now the problem stands is what to use as an underlay for the dress. I'm thinking I want to go floral, with lots of color but the thing with shopping for vintage fabrics is that you have to go with what you find. being a picky nanny isn't going to get you anywhere. Its like painting in water colors, you have to guide yourself
This is my Lace!! 
with out being too controlling. I know....I can feel the deep eye roll after you read that but its true, I go in with an idea and sometime's that idea changes when I see that one lushous fabric that say's 'Cherry......Cherry..... Take me home with you and make me pretty!' I can never resist that call.  I'm hoping for something of the purple family but I wont turn down mint green or anything like that. I hope for floral but these things are up in the air it all depends on whats in the thrift store at the time. well I will be posting updates on my search and what I found! Catch you lovelies later. 

And as always keep it classy!

Midnight Mass 2013

The Ladies where in full dress and the Gents where out in full force, Hello my lovelies yes I attended Midnight Mass this year and boy am I happy I did! There was so much fun to be had there, popin music, lots of very cool stuff to purchase, banging cars and new friends to be made. Our own Lolita was in the pinup pageant as well, and though she didn't place she still had an amazing time!  

Let me start with the begging of our day, and boy it was hot I thought I would melt. Thank god I had a fan or I parish to think what horrid state I would have been in, but that was a mute point when we first walked in and saw this beauty. yes it was so eye catching to be honest it was my favorite car there well besides the skull car but I suppose my love for skulls makes my attentions sway. But never the less
a pink paisley classic car was just awe striking and conjured love in both mine and Gerrett's heart. To tell the truth Lolita and her honey loved the car as well it was unanimous between us all the car was the Beez Kneez!

As I was snapping photos of the beautiful car, this random man expressed his want to be a "pinup girl" his proclamation made me giggle so I told him "Well get on that car and show me sexy!"  The out come was pure magic if you ask me! I was pleasantly happy at all the good spirited people so after my shyness went away I decided to take photos with some of the lovely dressed people this photo being my favorite because anyone who had the stones, fortitude and confadence to walk around in a bathing suit was admirable. She was actually surprised I wanted a photo with her, but for me it was a chance I just couldn't pass up she looked great! I made some  really nice new friends while walking
around, the ladies of the Atomic Angels admired my dress. I was pleasantly surprised they liked it so much we got to talking, needless to say these ladies where my kind of girls so I am seriously considering joining their group. Wouldn't that be just the hap's? I also meat Angela of Lady Birds Accessories, I bought a necklace from her and I have to say she was just a pleasure, and her stuff was amazing. Photo of it coming very soon I think I'll review what I got from her! People where like that and it made me smile at how warm people in the culture could be, I've never said how some times its really hard to be a vintage Betty in a modern world. where we are from its less common, some people can be not so understanding and the looks....Oooo the looks! But here it was all gravy baby!

While standing in the crowd of on lookers around the time of the pinup contest I was fortunate enough to have my picture take by none other then Denise Houk photographer, Artist, and all around sweetheart! I was honored she thought me well put together and dashing enough to photograph but she did and I was pleasantly happy with the out come!!! 

      I happened to run into a friend that I made a few months ago during the Winter Billy car show. that was the wonderful and amazingly talented VonSassy Tombe, I was hopping she would be there and sure enough she was there. She and I keep in touch and formed a friendship I have to say really means a lot to me, so it was so good to see her again. Lolita and I couldn't pass up the chance to snap some photos with our favorite pin stripper! She was just as sweet and talkative as I remembered and she was showing some of her amazing stuff, I really love the face she gives old luggage and other things new life with just a little love and paint. As a diy'er and vintage enthuses I love giving old things new life and allowing them to
live on, I suppose she and I share that love. I even picked something up from her as well I just couldn't resist! I got a little vintage hand bag and even caught Ms. VonSassy herself hard at work on it!! There is nothing like seeing a real artist at work
I was a proud mama of a lovely bag with my name sake on it. I was so gitty with excitement I nearly geek squealed about it but I controlled myself or cores! The bag is gorgeous and I love that it has my name on it, some how it made it all that much more special. that and the fact that My favorite pin stripper was nice enough to do it for me, needless to say I'm in love. There was a lot more swag to be had! Our own Lolita finally had her victory when she found
the Mexican bread to hang in her car. ever sense I have known her she has been going on, and on about that bread that she wanted to put in her car I was almost tempted to search the net to find them for her but here at the Midnight Mass she found her hearts desire. I never saw anyone so victorious in that moment but she was and I will forever remember that moment I saw her bounce with glee over it!   

Well needless to say we had a rockin time, it was a lot of fun and the people where amazing I plan to attend this even for as long as they have it! 
Well My lovelies I must be off there are things to review and vintage how to's to write so my little fingers will be busy! catch you later and as always keep it classy!

Smelling Sweet

Hello My lovelies

Its Cherry again and I'm here with a wonderful review! as I said in the post "A Little Glass Wear Obsession" I absolutely love perfume oils. they are a great and inexpensive way to smell great all day with out breaking the bank, now I have been wearing perfume oils sense I was a kid. My father used to get them from the local flea market near by, he was a stickler for smelling good. with that I was taught to always look your best and smell just as sweet. Over the years my tastes of sent has changed only slightly I like lighter fresher sent right out of the shower and then something fruity yet womanly when I am out the door. Then again my tastes changed with the seasons as well, I tend to wear sents that are warmer and spicier in the winter and Autumn and then frutier and more tropical sent in the summer and spring.

Okay just a little history about the wonderful world of Perfume, the art of making perfume was started in Egypt and then perfected  over time by Romans and Arabs. It was in the 14th century when perfumery became popular partly because of Arabic influence and knowledge but it was the Hungarians that who made the first modern perfume. The first modern perfume was made of sented oils and an alcohol solution at the command of Queen Elizabeth of Hungry in 1370 and was known through out Europe as Hungry water. Needless to say Perfume has come a long way sense then and tastes, and trends have changed the face of perfume through out the years.

So with that said perfume can get extremely expensive day to day believe me I know, I was having the darnest time keeping myself in the basic snits I loved.  those snits are usually floral based Jasmine, Lavender, Rose and Plumeria. Then there are the Fruity snits that my boyfriend unit loves which is Apple, Mango, Strawberry, Banana, and passion fruit then there is the aromatic snits like Vanilla, Cinnamon and Star Anise. yes I love all those snits and more to the point I like those snits with out being mixed with anything so I felt it best to find sinted oils that better suited my needs. Now you may find that 6$ for a small 1oz. bottle of scented oil not really that worth it but let me dispell that seceptice thought, ssented oil's are pur sent and they arent thinned out by alchol or other fillers at all. with that said you only need litrally a drop and rub it on your wrists and neck and trust me you are smelling sweet all day because they dont wear off like other perfumes. This means where you run out of perfume in say a month or two these will last a significent longer time and dont dry out as fast as another perfume if you put them in glass perfume with stoppers like the ones I have.
I have taken to buying perfume oils that are not only my favorite base sents but dups of my favorite perfume's as well, this site called "World Wide Perfume Oils" and they are amazing. I ordered from them some time back and have been using their products for about two years ago is when I started my journey back in perfume oils. I did a lot of research and look this site had great costumer service and their sents are really good, I really enjoyed what I got and I want to share that with you now. first I wanted to test how well their perfume types or (dips) of popular perfumes they made, and I was very pleasantly surprised.
 I bought their Be Delicious (Donna Karan) Type, Chance (Chanel) Type, Burberry Brit Type, Ralph Lauren Blue Type, Romance (Ralph Lauren) Type, Tommy Girls (T. Hilfiger) Type,   Fantasy  (Britney Spears) Type. how much of my hard earned wampum did I spend you ask? well all together I spent a total of  57.15$ which is the price of one of these perfumes.....Well a large bottle, that means I actually spent all of 6.95$ per bottle. now mind you I paid that much for a 1 oz. bottle but like argon oil you lirtally need only one drop on your wrist (rubbing it in to spread the sent) and two drops on each side of your neck. yep thats three drops a day from the bottle and I must say its been over a year sense I purchoused these and I havent even scratched the surface. 

Its a lot of bang for my buck if you ask me, and I'm all about making my almighty daller stretch! well kiddies I have to be leaving you but I will return! As always keep it classy.
