Laced in Peplum

Lace on lace is slowly becoming one of my new favorite things. I tried for a casual look with it today, toning down the fanciness of the blazer and the top with a pair of sneakers that I’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to start wearing again (they’re modeled after these shoes here). It’s like I’m wearing spring on my feet!100_1345 100_1348

Breezy

Long flowy skirts never fail to give me massive bohemian vibes. That being said, I’m not that much of a full-on of bohemian fan as far as my own clothes go, so I decided to throw on a trusty pair of chucks and a t-shirt that took far too long to tie in the front (I literally spent 10 minutes trying figure out how to do it). I like to keep things cool and breezy. 🙂100_1319 100_1325

Magic Fros

Happy Sunday everybody! It’s always been a dream of mine to be able to pull off the afro look and, seeing as I had just washed my hair, yesterday seemed as good a day as any to start (i.e. I was feeling really lazy after washing my hair and decided to let it air dry). I was feeling some serious vibes from the fro, guys. I almost thought I was going to travel back in time to experience some disco fever. Then I remembered that this was a time in which there was no home internet service or computers, so I decided to play it safe and stay in 2013. Nothing’s better than a good old afro, internet connection, and neon green sweater.100_1284 100_1292

It's like someone poured the essence of unicorns on my fingernails.

Oh, Spring, You Are Quite Dapper Today

Sun beams on my face

As bright new weeds sprout outside

Yet I still love you

That was an admittedly terrible haiku that I wrote whilst basking in the loveliness that is the current spring weather. My first days of spring were admittedly quite cold (it snowed for the first 3 or 4 days of my spring break), but now the weather has taken a turn for the better, leading me in with open arms for the loveliness that is my second favorite season. Spring, I accept you into my heart and shall treasure you, even if that means suffering through the panic that is tornado warnings. I show you my eternal love through my sunny yellow pants that are almost as bright as the rays you cast upon this earth.

*I’m feeling quite poetic today, as you may have been able to tell. I think I am experiencing the ‘spring fever’.100_1251 100_1249

I never got a Peter Rabbit chocolate bunny as a kid, so I had to buy my own as it was on sale.

The Rest of My Art Challenge

Gawr! Yes, I know I was absent for a long time for “mysterious reasons” (that shall remain as such), so I thought I’d post the rest of my art challenge up at the same time. I actually skipped challenge 5 (another collage) and 9 (that was actually a freebie), but I have the rest.

Day 6: Draw your favorite food100_1242

I drew a nice plate of buffalo tenders accompanied by some very attractive blue cheese dip. As you can probably tell, this food is much more textured than I’m used to dealing with (and I still didn’t know how to get the shine of the sauce) and I’m a big fan of spicy food.

Day 7: Draw a random object from your house100_1240

I stole one of my dad’s Run DMC plushies for this.

Day 8: Draw a book or anime character100_1238

I can’t really draw in the style used by most animators for anime anymore, so I went for a book and drew one of my favorite book characters of all time, Luna Lovegood. She’s a fab character and now I feel tempted to sit around and watch movies 5-7 part 2 because she’s in them (I’d read the books but I don’t own a full set).
