The big day <3

This weekend was my best friend and cousins wedding. It was one of the most emotional, exciting, and beautiful weddings that I got to be a part of.

My lovely cousin, friend and client of the day and I πŸ™‚ you can’t tell but we’ve been tearing up all day prior to this. πŸ™‚

This past weekend I had the privilege to work with some beautiful ladies for a bridal party here in Seattle.

The longer I work as a makeup artist, the more I realize how much I love it and I am hoping that one day it can become a full time business for me πŸ™‚

I get to play with makeup all day and hang out with super pretty girls who make my job easy because they are stunning already! Sigh… oh the life of a makeup artist πŸ™‚

Here are some shots of before and afters:

I might be a little biased since I am Ukrainian, but Ukrainian girls are so beautiful! But of course every ethnicity has its own unique beauty πŸ™‚

If you are in the Seattle area and are looking for a makeup artist, feel free to contact me through my business email- vika_manchik@yahoo.com.

Well I hope you all have a lovely Wednesday- it’s almost Friday and that means the weekend!!

Love and kisses,

eShakti- A Unique Dress for a Unique You!

Well hello Monday- my favorite day of the week.

Not really.

But on a lighter note, I have a lovely dress to share with you that I wore for my cousins engagement-
A few weeks ago I was introduced to eShakti.

eShakti is a unique women’s apparel store online that allows custom changes in the style of the garment – sleeve, neckline, length can all be changed by the customer to her preference. They are the only company offering all styles in all sizes: 0-36W.

eShakti’s custom capabilities allow shoppers to easily tailor any item to their specific requirements ensuring a flattering fit and unique look. Built-in online customization tools allow women to modify original fashions to fit their size, shape and personal style. Unlike traditionally-tailored clothing, eShakti’s incredibly quick turnaround time allows customers to receive their custom-made look within two weeks of ordering!

In addition to the size and style personalization, they are now presenting, for the first time by any apparel brand – the choice to have embellishments or not… so one can dress up or down or the way they like it… personalizing a unique dress or top or skirt that is to one’s style, color, size, embellishment preference. Only at eShakti!

The internet allows us to be extremely customer-centric by enabling the buying to be inter-active. Shakti means power in Sanskrit. eShakti therefore means the power of the Net. They believe the internet empowers customers and helps companies be customer-centered. They ship across the USA and Canada

When I visited the website, I was pleasantly surprised- they had so many cute styles and choices! I ended up picking a polka dotted halter top dress.

What was really awesome was that I got to customize the length, size, fit, everything! This dress was truly customized to fit my body. Every body is unique and I know that one size does not fit all- so it was great I could customize the dress how I wanted it.

This would especially be helpful for brides and bridesmaids- most weddings have bridesmaid wear the same dress and eShakti makes it an easy way to customize each dress to be perfect for each bridesmaid. They also came out wit a new line made specially for bridesmaids- which is a plus.

I love my new dress and love how it fits me! Here is the
eShakti site, take. Look for yourself! πŸ™‚

Have a happy Monday!! πŸ™‚
Love and kisses,
Miss M
