Brushed & Blushed.

Posted by Tori Torres on

I wouldn't consider myself an expert on makeup brushes. These days, I'm more focused on just getting it on so I can get started with my day or run one of the boys to baseball practice or games! I'm a Mami on the move and while I'm still fabulous, I'm doing it in activewear. Cute activewear, but still...active wear. The fancy word that Heidi uses to describe it on Project Runway I believe, is "athleisure". So, that's me. No makeup guru. Just a single Mami trying to run three companies under one brand, and get my guys where they need to...

I've Got Dreams To Remember...A Love Letter To My Sons...

Posted by Tori Torres on

My dearest Cristian and Carmelo, the two individual loves of my life. You, who   teach me daily what real love is. It is patience. Understanding. Kindness. Critical   Thinking. Listening. Considering. Forgiving and Accepting. Dedication without expectation, and loyalty. It is ever evolving.    Today I got to thinking about dreams. Childhood dreams, current dreams, dreams of the future, my dreams for you...Thinking about life and the ups and downs we all have and will face. I wanted to share a moment of clarity, or an 'aha moment" - as Oprah would say. You know Mami has always approached parenting...

With that in mind…I’d like to introduce to you our newest addition to the Crystal Desk Phones Home & Office Collection.   The Crystal Couture Desk...

I Remember When...

Posted by Tori Torres on

…I was a little girl, and the home of someone we were visiting had hanging beads as a room divider. I thought it was the coolest thing ever! I would walk back and forth through the strands, making that ridiculous clinging noise, as the strands brushed across my face…but I really just   loved the sound the beads made, and the feeling LOL!  I remember thinking…when I grow up, I am going to have beads drizzling from my ceiling to the floor, and they will gleam and catch the sunlight all day, and shimmer and glisten to the lighting at night....

The Posh Princess Gets A Makeover

Posted by Tori Torres on

Recently I have giving new makeovers to some of our staple designs…Rock Candy got upgraded last month, and is ready for 2015! Crystal Couture received some pretty, new ab stones, and it now comes standard with ss12 stones for more detail at no additional fee! The Posh Princess has been a fan favorite for many years, I believe I made the first one in 2005…there’s a post about it somewhere, I’ll have to double check. Anyway, clients love this design because it is very personal to the individual…it’s like your own personal avatar. They are cute, fun, girly, and really over...
