It happened again, guys. I disappeared. This another “not another sorry for not blogging” posts. Ugh. What gives?
Where do I even begin?’
Life has been a mash-up of distractions. Good distractions, though. I’m an all-or-nothing kinda gal so I find it insanely difficult to find the balance between all the aspects I want to be incorporated into my life. This means blogging consistently, making videos, creating new and exciting stuff, running my shop like a boss, and all that life stuff, too.
So, what have I been doing? Eating burgers (for a change…). Always with a side of onion rings. And all the ketchup.
Christmas happened. Can you freaking believe Christmas happened? Like a month ago and I’m still not over it.
Forever packing orders.
I started Snapchatting. It’s mostly outfits and cats I meet on the street. Add me – pixieandpixier.
Winter is hitting hard so I’ve been remedying that with plenty of bubble baths complete with The Office on Netflix instant loop.
This has been a Break The Silence post. Let’s continue to hang out. Let’s do cool stuff.
In my eternal effort to evade winter, I’ve been figuring out ways to both clothe myself for extreme warmth (read: I got shivers if it gets below 18 degrees) and also avoiding wearing jeans and hoodies every day (read: I ain’t about that life). With a pair of stockings and some cosy thigh high socks you can pretty much cheat winter and wear skirts and shorts all year round!
Beanie: River Island; Tee: DIY; Barbie necklace: PIXIEandPIXIER; Badges: c/o Butt’n Booty; Skirt: Temt; Socks: Primark; Boots: River Island
Other winter/year-round essentials include: faux furs, black boots, all pink everythang.
Stay warm bitches,
As I’ve been making making a more central part of my life, through consciously making time for getting it done, I thought I’d try something new. Drawing girls is not new to me. My sketchbooks are about 80% comprised of ladies. Drawing with photoshop, though, that’s all new!
Artists I freaking adore, like Mel Stringer, Danny Brito, and Melissa Chaib, all kill it with their digital work and it really inspired me to shake it up and give photoshop art a go. With all things new, I’m a little rusty and have a hella lot of learning to do but I’m pretty into the method. Digital drawing is super quick and adjustable and really satisfying.
So, here’s some stuff I’ve been doing!
Starting off on paper makes the most sense to me because, a) I’m eternally analog, and b) I don’t have a drawing tablet.
Seeing the process of works is really exciting to me. Sometimes I think it’s more beautiful than the end result or maybe just that it adds extra layers (photoshop pun, y’all).
Go make some stuff,
Just some things that have been nice lately.
