Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays everybody!

Sorry I know it's been a long time since I've posted. With working retail during holiday season I've been running around like an elf...yeah elf...sounds good. So I took a little break and still have a bunch of things I want to start in on. The fall line has a few more pieces that need to be sketched out, but it's just about done. As I do each line it gets better and better. I feel like a proud mama with all the stretch marks from the birth of a fabulous line. So next year defintely stay tuned. Thank you all for following my blog, I am very thankful to have fantasitical readers like you! So without further ado here is the holiday look for whatever festivites you have going on.




Peace and love during this holiday and year round!

It's the middle of November and yet no snow...I couldn't possibly be happier..not a fan of the snow. Yet I live in Michigan, so I'll have to get over it. Moving on. Holiday is coming and if you haven't had a chance to look at the new Holiday line please do. I am still taking orders at mymasayume@gmail.com. So I just got my hair done and I like the new look. I'm still getting used to it but I'll post pics evenutally lol. I noticed that I haven't done any new looks lately so please have fun with the one below.

did you feel the switch?

I'm sooo sad that Halloween is over! I love love LOVE Halloween and always have. This year I passed out candy with my mom and we watched old "scary" movies. It was great. I wasn't that big into going out this year, but always love to hang with my mom. The boyfriend and I also found time to head out to Uncle John's Cider Mill. It was a great time to be had by all. I think I possibly rubbed off on my guy this year because he was carving pumpkins to his little hearts content. I did one he did three...kinda put me to some holiday shame. Once Halloween ended you could feel the switch in the air! I was even more pumped to get this Holiday out this week. I was already excited, but now I'm talking fast...which I think make a lot of people sad, because it probably makes their heads want to explode...hehehehe







my haunted house...yes it's a house

paul's scarecrow pumpkin...so jealous!

 I've been hard at work getting holiday ready to drop this week. My poor intern who is very anxious to help out and see what the designs are is hard at work getting her learn on. Anyways! I'm just taking a small break before I go back to the "funness" of cutting out the patterns. Look for Holiday to drop this week, I'm going to be a busy busy bee. I also bought a new pilates dvd so we will see how that works out for me seeing that I really don't like pilates. But I also don't like the extra love I'm carrying around either lol. Well enough procrastination I'm back to the sewing room...

update

    Eileen(most awesomest intern) has brought to my attention, that I've been neglecting the blog lately...This is true...my bad! I've been running around trying to finalize somethings, as well as put things in place.  It will all turn out well. I am going to be printing the pics for my portfolio later as well as putting the paperwork together inside WOOO! So hopefully soon you'll see an updated website and logo. I'm sooooo excited.

the deal...

well I know that I've been away for awhile, but I told myself I had to so make sure I got done what needed to be done. SOOOO to let you all know what I've been up to, I've been reworking my business plan. Now am I completely finished?...well no...however I have finished the most important parts. So now all I have left is a summary and my intern will look at it this Wednesday to make sure I didn't get off topic lol. I have a tendency to rant and babble on like a giant ninny...like this time when I was a church camp...hehehehe.

I went out to Chicago with the man toy to visit my old stomping ground. Yes it was only for a year and a half, but I miss it soo. I made a dress that morning (2am to be exact) to where there. It is actually kind of a sneak peek to the holiday line. It will have a bit of a different twist however. So I went to my friend Anastasia Chatzka's shop. It's amazing. I love the decor! It was sooo inspiring. She is doing so many great things right now so keep a look out for her. Then I went to Schaumburg and visited some old friends there as well.


please forgive the rolls...I was very blotted...tmi I know ^_^

The best part of my whole trip besides the spontaneous picnic my boyfriend at my favorite park. ugh it was sooooo great. Even though we had to eat in the car because the rain didn't let up. So after the rain stopped we took a walk in the park...hehehee. However back to the best part...on the way to Anastasia's store on Division street it was ohhhh so very windy. And since I don't really wear skirts or dresses that often I kind of forgot ohhh be careful of the gusts lol. Well lets just say next time I'm going to charge for the goodies that the CHI got to see. hehehe...my boyfriend however couldn't stop laughing and smirking to save his life. All in all though a fantastic time!

Paul(the boyfriend)and I went to the new casino today...I lost 20 bucks :*( . Paul won 90 bucks though...lucky...I pouted. I got to play with a new kitty though and that made up for it. She is sooo cute! I love the feeling of kitty paws lol...what did you do this weekend?

taking steps

Sorry I've been away. I've been trying to stay mostly chilled during my time off. It's necessary trust me! I got my stitches out Friday, and I can now put on shows to keep down my swelling and wear sandals at night to relax. I have an appointment with the Dr. on Friday so they can take a look to make sure things are going well. Anyways, Masa Yume has been going threw some changes and growths. I am building a stronger brand and trying to get my designs out the way the are meant to come across. I'm happy to know such great people that are just as creative, if not more so, that are so helpful and smart. By next year sometime Masa Yume will be a bigger brand than it is now, and finding more ways to creep happily into your yummy closets, BWAH HA HA! Enjoy the below look!



Well, I still have a bunch of fun stuff left for the week. I am going to the bridal store to see my friend try on gowns. Apparently there are a lot of weddings next year ^_^ hehehe. Sad parts of my day were when I found out my friend Soojin is hopefully moving, my toe is VERY unhappy, and the mosquito bite under my eye itches horrible. It looks like I haven't slept in days. OH well, upside my new hair do is todo hehehe. Yeah I know...Later Loves!

out for a bit...

well for those who do not know, I had surgery on Friday. Apparently it's unusual to grow an extra bone or two in your big toe lol. Yeah freaky. So I'm currently just not feeling well all together thanks to the medication they have me on. So When I "work" I start to just feel like crap...But! I wanted to do a quick look because I'm going to be layin low for the next couple of days. I will also be getting some new makeup since I'm SO in the mood. When I get the goods I'll show you what I got. Until then my look below:



I did this one since I'm getting to use the sexiest pair of crutches! It's comfy for when you can't carry a purse on your arm, because is keeps falling into the crutches as well as wide leg bottoms since you are wearing a huge boot. It's comfy and a neutral makeup look.ENJOY! I'll be back soon.

Hello all! The show happened last night and OMGoodness... It was sooo crazy but in a good way. I'm so happy that people were able to make it out. Thanks to all that were able to come out and support Masa Yume. Thanks also to my sponsors who were absolutely amazing. Michigan's Next Top Model for their fabulous models, Klever Design and Printing for the fabulous business cards, The Highway Press for the FANTASTICAL totes, Busog for the oh so amazing tees, and last but NOT least Vintage Prodigy. I'm so excited. People really liked the line, and after seeing it come together it was sooo nice.

Thank you to by bf as well for putting up with my crankiness. As the day came closer and closer I slept less and less. SO there will be pics from the new line to come, and I will be posting them on my etsy soon as well. But I did happen to take a few pictures of the festivities so please enjoy them. Hehehe!



I will have to upload a pic of my new business cards from Klever Design and Printing. It is the STUFF!

breathe

So lovely's I have a relaxing look. A look that you can kinda bum around in but still look stylish.



I love this look and wouldn't mind owning it. By the way I am going to be getting my hair done for the big day (fashion show). I can't wait to put up before and after pics. I'd love to hear opinions. I think that I'm going natural though. I have very curly hair so I will probably be wearing it like that for a while.^_^

update

Ok! So I've been away for a very long time. I'm oh so sorry. I've been plugging away in the sewing room being up for 24 hours if need be. I still have three more to go, but that will be done on Thursday. Which gives me some much needed time to clean my apartment overnight and sleep. The fitting was yesterday and it went pretty well I think. The three that I didn't get to fit I already know who's wearing what and they will come to me for the fitting, which is always shiny.

After 2 monsters and a couple naps(so I didn't literally sew my fingers. almost happened twice) and being up since Monday 8:30am, I was helped a lot on Tuesday. My boyfriend drove my model Sara and myself down to Royal Oak for the fitting. After getting helped from the other fabulous designer, Luminita Popa, we headed home. I'm not fully recovered from this sewing adventure so please forgive me if I repeat myself. When we got back my boyfriend made sure I ate and tucked me into bed. I know very sweet right?...Well it's the only way he knew that I wouldn't stay up and check blogs and watch t.v. all night lol. Oh Oh! My intern is back from Ireland. I got a text message as soon as she touched down in New York. Woot!






Eileen hard at work before her trip to Ireland


There are none me, because I look oh so very less than sexy when I sew. I don't even look okay lol. I get all frustrated because I don't think I go fast enough so it's not a good look. Trust ont that ^_^. I'll be back to blog in the next few days. I still have the accessories and finishing touches to do, just for starters lol. So although the sewing will be almost finished there is still more. I'm so happy to have Eileen and my friend Soojin to help me.
