A long weekend of photos


Hey everyone!

I wanted to share a fun post of pictures from the past few days.
I have this oddly long break between my last lecture class and final so it was a combination of playing and studying that was pretty hard to balance. It's strange thinking the semester is over but technically not over because finals aren't over! But hey... I'm getting through it!

I took a few art breaks to destress and to enjoy myself during my breaks. Here's this painting that I started drawing last year and completely forgot about until now. It turned out nicely in my opinion.



Here's one I was working on spontaneously. I didn't plan any of it so it's going to come together however it wants to. Sometimes, that's the best kind of art. 


I also had a night out with friends and ended up at a pizza place in DTLA with such a large group that we had to connect all of their available tables and seats. But I must say... late night pizza is bomb.


I wanted to share this quote because it truly reflects the journey that I went through and am still going through this year. Living focusing on yourself and the beauty around you... what you want to experience and what's important to you... that can be so hard to do. This is a great reminder. And accepting the natural cycle is all about accepting your place in the world too before accepting when others leave or arrive in this world. 


I got this letter in the mail at the perfect time. A letter from an old friend telling me about her life and where she is on that spectrum is so fascinating because I'm in such a different place. And this "gopher it" was a perfect little "you can do it" to go into finals with. 


My long weekend ended with a nice study session full of breaks and froyo with a friend.
The simple simplicities in life are so grand. 

Enjoy. Happy May everyone. :)

Born Pretty Store: Watch Review

Hey everyone!

It's been a while since I teamed up with Born Pretty Store for a review so here we are!

Born Pretty Store sells all sorts of inexpensive fashion jewelry, nail art supplies, and even clothing accessories. The best part is that they offer worldwide free shipping which makes shopping with them easy and a little brighter. I had the opportunity to choose some goodies to review...

I have been in need of a simple and comfortable watch for a long time. When Born Pretty Store contacted me, this was the perfect opportunity to pick out one of their many watches!

Here is the one I chose:

This faux leather grid watch is $8.99 and comes in white or sky blue. 
The simplicity and easy to read boyfriend style was what lured me to it. 
It arrived in a bubble wrap envelope, in a cute heartsy box like this below.




So I wore this watch around for a week and noticed a few awesome things:
1. The gold frame of the watch against the white band looks really nice and expensive.
2. The watch is very light and sits on my wrist comfortably.
3. It is very easy to read.
4. It catches people's eye and I get many compliments.


Of course, pros have their cons. So here are a few things I wish the watch had:
1. The bands are very thin so I wish they were more durable.
2. the clasp is silver and does notes match the hold frame of the watch
3. White watches get dirty so fast.
4. The band starts to peel off every time you put on or take off the watch from the friction.


With that being said... I like this watch. The price is very reasonable if you like to invest in several cheaper fashion watches. I don't know how long the batteries will last but it's been fine for the last 2 weeks. I'll keep you guys posted. Thanks Born Pretty Store for working with me!

I still wear a lot of my dainty earrings from the Born Pretty Store and love them. For fashion jewelry, they don't discolor or irritate my skin in my experience. Definitely check out their extensive jewelry collection!

Here's a 10% coupon code just for you. Remember, shipping is guilt free.

How to Draw: Neko Atsume Kitties

Hi everyone!

My good friend Tina introduced me to this game and now... I check on my cats at least 3x times a week. Dangit. This is such a low key game. You put food out and toys and cats come to hang out in your "lawn". They leave "fish money" when they leave and you can buy more toys and food with it. If you don't have time for a game requiring more commitment... this is for you. Plus, the cats are cute and the background music is calming. :) Enjoy!



Enjoy!
