Julie Erin Designs in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico!

Hey guys!

This past month I had the opportunity to travel to Puerto Vallarta, on the Pacific side of Mexico.

While I was there I had some fun taking photos with my new Canon EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR camera I got for Christmas this year.

My boyfriend helped take some photos of me wearing my A-Line dress from Redbubble.

See a more detailed review of my A-Line dress from Redbubble in this post.

I also photographed my Beach Mandala beach tote bag from Society6.

Both of these products were perfect to take on beach holiday.

These pictures were taken on the resort we stayed at, Club Regina Puerto Vallarta near the marina.

On one of the days while I was lounging on the beautiful beach near the resort, I drew this mandala in the sand.

Another day while we were out exploring the city, I found some beautiful street art which included mandalas, so I had to stop and strike a pose!

Also take a look at my Society6 store for some more beach holiday essentials such as:

Have you traveled to Puerto Vallarta before?  If not, you really should.  It’s a beautiful place full of warm people, great food and amazing nature.

Zentangle Inspired Drawings

Hi guys!  Today I am sharing with you 6 different zentangle inspired drawings I have done over the past few years.

Most of these combine elements of drawing and collage, and were all done in my sketchbook using Sharpie markers.

Several of these designs are available as prints and on other products in my Society6 store and other shops.

This one was inspired by Easter and the flowers of Spring.

Here it is also available as a greeting card from my Zazzle store.

 

This one combines a lot of different Zentangle inspired patterns and does not have any collage elements.  This one is not available as a print.

This one which incorporates different lips cut out of a women’s magazine is one of my favourites!

Redbubble Product Review – A-Line Dress

tropical monstera pattern fashion review

I finally bought myself an A-Line dress from Redbubble.

I’ve been curious since day one about how these dresses look, fit, and feel, and had a hard time finding any detailed reviews of them online.

So when I published my new Tropical Monstera Pattern and saw how nice it looked, I had to order one.

I must say I am pleased with the dress. I ordered an XS after reviewing the size chart, and it fits quite nicely. (I’m 5’0″ by the way and usually wear size S)

It took a few weeks to arrive, because I’m in Canada and it got stuck at the border for about a week (darn customs).

Aside from this photoshoot at English Bay beach, where these pictures were taken, I wore this dress for whole day at work with a belt and black cardigan. I even received some compliments from my co-workers!

Here are my impressions of the dress so far:

  • It is loose and flowy, non clingy, silky feeling, and doesn’t wrinkle easily.
  • It is comfortable to wear.
  • The print is vibrant and shows off my artwork nicely.
  • The light and thin fabric is not see through at all.
  • It would be a great garment for hot summer days or a tropical vacation.

I quite like the dress with a belt for my figure, as seen in the pictures above. But, I think this dress is probably flattering for most body-types, especially with the option of a belt or no belt.

More details about this dress from the Redbubble website:

  • 97% Polyester / 3% Elastane woven dress fabric
  • Made in the U.S.A.
  • Print covers entire front and back panel
  • Loose swing shape for an easy, flowy fit.

Let me know what you think about this dress or other Redbubble products you’ve purchased by leaving a comment below!

I plan on doing some more product reviews in the future so make sure to follow my blog and stay tuned.

Have a great day!

My Best Polyvore Sets

Unicorn Makeup Polyvore fashion set

You may have heard that the popular fashion website Polyvore was sold off and the website has been shut down.

If you didn’t know about Polyvore, it was a fashion website where you could pin and collect fashion, home decor, and images from around the web and create sets with them, enter them into contests and share them with friends.  It was pretty fun, especially for fashion lovers.

I used Polyvore to make sets and sometimes included my own designs from Zazzle and Society6 in them.

I was able to download all of my sets before they were gone forever, and since they are no longer online I thought I’d share a few of my best sets here!

Where I’ve included my own designs in the set I will list the products below the image in case you’re interested.

I actually have a ton more sets that I will save for a later date.

I am pretty sad that Polyvore is gone since it was a fun and unique website!  Does anyone know of any similar alternatives?  If you used Polyvore, what are your thoughts on the change?

Have a great day everyone.

New Mandala Patterns

Here are 2 new mandala patterns I created by re-using and re-mixing my best selling Rose Gold Mandala design!

These designs were also inspired by some of my other best selling designs, including my Blue and Gold Mandala Pattern and my Rose Gold Mandala on a White Marble background.

I think these 2 mandala designs turned out pretty nicely and I have uploaded them to my Redbubble and Society6 stores!  Check out a few samples of the products available below.  They make a beautiful tapestry or throw pillow.
