So are you still wearing a bra?

I was born in the 80s

I grew up in the 90s

In 2020 I will have lived in 4 different decades and 2 different millennia

and I am only 33 ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

But one thing I don’t remember or didn’t live through was the burn your bra movement in 1968 when women took items that oppressed them(mops, lipstick, bras) and symbolically threw them away

This was a whole 18 years before I was even born.

So now I don’t want you to miss my point when I say ditch your bra… this is not exactly the same thing as it was in 1968

I want to free your girls from the entrapment known as the bra, free them from that pesky underwire(which in a future blog post I am going to tell you how bad they are for breast health)

I never intend for you to just walk around with nothing on but rather to replace your bra with a healthier comfier alternative

The Ruby Ribbon Cami or Demiette

I urge you if you have never tried a Ruby Ribbon Cami or Demiette(demi) take my cami fitting survey here and try one on today risk free

Want to know more about this wonderful company and what else we have to offer jump on over to my website

Feel free to e-mail me or use the contact me page above

If you could choose?

What one would you choose based on what looks more comfortable?

So let me just say I am a bra girl, I have always been a smaller chested girl and feel that a bra gives me more shape and appear larger.

In 2013 I was introduced to an AWESOME company called Ruby Ribbon who said you can say #byebyebra. To be completely honest I was mortified I didnt want to give up my bra, my security blanket if you will. I was more attracted to the leggings and fashion Ruby Ribbon offered while my mom and family members(aunts and cousins) were very intrigued by the amazing shapewear.

I signed up as a stylist without trying anything on… yes you read that right I knew Ruby Ribbon was going to be HUGE, a rocket ship and I knew I wanted a seat onboard.๐Ÿš€

Everytime I would talk to women, introducing them to my new friend Ruby๐ŸŽ€I would say how you you like to ditch your bra? I would get the same response… you want me to throw my bra away? You want me to go without a bra? I couldnt possibly.

I felt discouraged, no one seemed to jump on the idea of the cami.

Introducing the demiette!!! My favorite piece!!! More of a positive response, I thought well msy e because it resembles a bra? Then I thought I was going about this all wrong( yes for the past 6 years doing it wrong) not a #byebyebra but a #brareplacement YES!!!! A bra replacement much better.

As much as I love my bra(yes you read that right I really do love my bra) I dont particularly care for the underwire. In comes the Ruby Ribbon Demiette, yes fits and feels more like a bra… just more comfortable no underwire.

The demiette is an awesome bra replacement. The medical grade silicone gripper edge forms a seal on your skin and in order to keep it in place you will fold up a small piece to create a “faux underwire” the demiette provides lift and separation as well as back support(better posture while wearing it)

Are you ready for a bra replacement?

Try one one risk free today you will be so glad that you did!

So what are you waiting for?

Baked Ziti Soup

On a bitter cold winter evening there is just nothing better than a hot bowl of soup to warm you upโค

So tonight is that night!!!! When our temps didnt make it out of the 20s today, yes tonight is a perfect night for soup!

I love to experiment with recipes creating my own recipe

I had seen on instagram a yummy soup, called Lasagna soup, it intrigued me and I looked it up.

Using what I had on hand I created my own and it quickly became “baked Ziti” instead of “lasagna” soup

  • Add chicken broth, marinara, and tomato paste
  • Bring to a low boil and simmer for 20 mins

It was a Cricut Christmas


When I opened up my cricut on Christmas Morning to say I was excited is a huge understatement!!!

I mean me and cricut go way back to the very beginning

I had(stillhave in my craft studio) the original sizzix a manual die cutter( anyone remember those ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ?)

When they announced Cricut was coming out with a state of the art electronic die cutting machine, I knew I needed it… a crafting game changer!!!

I refer to it as the baby bug, you would buy cartridges that had images loaded on them

The original cricut had a limitation on size it was small, but for my crafting nerdist was perfect!!!

Then they released the cricut expression and my mind was blown at all of the possibilities with sizes and new cartridges released constantly(became a very expensive habit really quick๐Ÿคฃ)

I then had the opportunity of a crafters lifetime I became part of the Cricut Army

Cricut flew me to Chicago for a weekend training session… it was my first time flying and traveling solo, and it was so much fun I met so many amazing crafters

I worked as a demonstrator for cricut products at Michael’s Arts and Crafts I had so much fun and gained a couple more machines and a gypsy for more design and play on the go(like a tablet for the cricut)

After the cricut army tour of duty was finished I slipped away from cricut for awhile(almost ashamed to say this but I learned a lot about crafting and electronic die cutting… I expanded my crafting into.the world of vinyl๐Ÿ˜ฎ)

I began crafting with the silhouette cameo and I loved it for the ease of connecting to my laptop with a design space I can use anywhere I wasnt connected or limited to a cartridge. I thought it was more cost effective for me.

The entire time I was with silhouette I kept thinking about cricut… I wonder how they are to work with now, wonder if I could go back?

I would dream of having my cricut back(I still have all of my original cricuts you know what I mean, i wanted to go back to cricut the new cricut๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜

Christmas my crafting dreams came true

I received the most gorgeous pink cricut explore air and a bunch of goodies to go with it๐Ÿ™Œ

Oh yea and I didnt mention I also got the mini heat press ๐Ÿ˜

I couldn’t hardly wait to open it all up and get creating

Neither could Fresno๐Ÿ˜ป

He is my crafting buddy he loves to sit and watch my machines do all the fun work๐Ÿ˜„

There she is my pink lady with one of my original bugs and expression machines

Huge improvement on the original machines I love it!!!

Feel like I have come full circle and I am home again๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ™Œ

My first project is a birthday party celebration, card and floral bouquet

More about this coming later!!!

Have a crafty day
