Uh Oh...


Question:

how do you get dressed on days when you don't feel pretty?

im not gonna lie, i ended up in jeggings, a stretchy tank top and a headband today.
when i took off the headband, my bangs where sticking up Meet the Robinsons style... not awesome.

WHAT I SHOULD HAVE DONE INSTEAD:
1. ignore the mirror and clock.
just because you have bed face and raccoon eyes and its 2pm doesn't mean you can be lazy. (unless you will see no one but your cat or you are genuinely sick)

2. shower and wash your hair.
when you have bedhead, change it, don't let it control you!

3. check your nails.
if you are an artist, you spend a lot of time with your eyes pointed, if not looking at, your nails. if they look like junk, polish those babies up.

4. put on a funky but comfortable and slouchy sundress.
if i had done this instead of making a B-line for my sports bra, i would have been happier. (and maybe those project runway reruns wouldn't have made me feel so bad.)

5. at LEAST go for foundation.
hit the mascara up, maybe chapstick.

thats maybe 1 hour worth of work.
and then when your husband brings a friend home for dinner... you won't look scary.

Since i seem to only have stripes...

i have been a bit frumpy lately, laying around the house and generally allowing things to collectively collect. i have been feeling like a blend in a little too well here, one more military wife. so, i have decided a bit of new years reinvention is in order.
im going Rockabilly.
and before you start sending panicked comments:
no tattoos, no piercings and absolutely no cherry red hair.

i am just doing the basics:
red lips
cat eyes
sailor stripes
beehive hair with bandanas
cool vintage glasses

AND THE BEST PART! I AM NOT BUYING ANYTHING.

here's what i found fun and inspiring:

a bit of cake


i dearly wish this was a real cake.
ahhhh meeee....
i drew this because i didnt really like the colors of my sculpted cake and felt i could impove them on paper.
then it seems i got too lazy to go find the proper copic markers or crack my watercolor box, so i used what was on the coffee table.

i have been thinking of some kind of tutorials for my blog.
what would you like to see?

The Two Sisters


i totally love my pilot g tec pens and my copic markers. so easy and fun.
