Pictures from The Makeup Show LA 2012

Yume, Jodie from Lit Cosmetics, Lauren (Queen of Blending) and meeee!

My first blog post of 2013 is going to be about… The Makeup Show of March 2012! I’ve been so horribly negligent with my blog. The past few months have been nuts! We’re still not done moving all our stuff to LA, and I actually have to move again in another month or two. Our first goal was to find a work space, which we’ve been living in for the past month just to get our stuff down to LA and start preparing for IMATS. I love the new place so much! Brick walls, huge windows, super friendly neighbors and dogs galore, amazing location within walking distance of a billion restaurants and bars. But I need a life separate from work and don’t want to live in my office. I did that for years when I was designing clothes and starting Sugarpill out of my home, and it made me mental. I remember feeling like my sweatpants were going to start fusing with my skin because I never had any reason to get dressed in the morning, and when I did leave the house I’d get really bad anxiety. So after IMATS madness is over, I get to move all my stuff again! I plan to live super close to the office though, so it shouldn’t be too bad. I hardly own anything big anyway. Just cats!

The night before The Makeup Show was open to the public, Yume and I met up with friends at the Blogger Preview Night, where we enjoyed free food and open bar. Best ever!

Sugarpill at IMATS 2011 with Queen of Blending, Day Two!

After surviving the frenzy of IMATS Day 1, we were well prepared for equal amounts of chaotic fun the following day.

Michelle/Chubby Bunny, Tess, Yume, me!

Our booth babe for the day, Lauren/Queen of Blending! We staged a wife swap with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics that weekend. The day prior, we had Josh/Petrilude at our booth, while OCC had Lauren. On Sunday we traded. Doing joint custody the right way!

I sew sometimes too. One-of-a-kind Shrinkle / Sugarpill dresses for sale!

Hello! I’m selling two supercute dresses I made exclusively for Sugarpill photoshoots. I’ve spent some time hoarding them for sentimental reasons, but decided to stop being a bitch and let someone else enjoy them. Both dresses are 100% handmade and one-of-a-kind, which means I won’t make duplicates, ever!

SHRINKLE Hot Pink Turquoise Polka Dot Mesh Party Dress w/ Heart Buttons

Hi! Here’s a fun dress I made just for you (yeah, you)!! It’s the same one I wore to IMATS, but I made multiples of this design so the one you get will be brand new and unworn.

I currently have a MEDIUM and LARGE listed in my Etsy shop. I made a Small too, but it’s being loaned out for a Locketship photo shoot so I don’t want to list it yet. I should be getting it back in a few weeks, so check back if that’s the size you’re after!

Necklace by Cutie Dynamite!

On a side note, I’ve missed sewing SOOOOO much! I barely have time for anything these days since Sugarpill took over my life. But I’m trying to rework my schedule so that I can do it all and keep making pretty dresses for you guys. Sleep bad, coffee good!

Have a happy weekend!
