I had this idea lately that I wanted a fish. Well…here he is! I named him Gus. He’s a little Betta fish and he lives in a pink castle. He seems to be enjoying his new home!
I spent roughly two hours sitting at Barnes & Noble last night, sipping a blended mocha in the café section of the store and flipping through international travel books. For some reason, I just really enjoy looking at such books, because I’m fascinated by other countries and cultures. So, I was reading through a book on Spain and another on the Netherlands (subconsciously must have been curious about my ancestral roots, I guess? I left out a book on Italy, though! Next time. 😉 ) . All the pretty windmill photos and tulips inspired me to draw this little piece of art. I used Prisma color pencils.
I look barbaric in this photo…like I just ruthlessly obtained a piece of land and claimed it with this stick.
Nah, not barbaric at all! A cheesy, nerdy gal at heart.
So, this top I purchased at Forever 21 awhile ago, and it’s super comfortable and light! Perfect for this time of year (although today, it’s considerably cooler). The skirt, I bought at Forever 21 also. Side note: the air quality here in Central California is awful right now. There are 3 major fires going on north and south of the valley, so the smoky air is collecting here and you can see the veil of smoke in the sky. Yet I am writing this on the patio of a Starbucks, breathing in lightly smoked air…smart of me to be doing so? Probably not!
The big ring – made by moi…and you can find it here!
Later this week, or probably even tomorrow, I’m going to attempt to cook something new. Now, I’m not really a great cook. I can make vegetables taste really good by cooking them on the stove, seasoning them, etc., or things of that nature. This time, I’m going to step it up a notch and try Spanish cuisine! I decided on patatas bravas. I figure it can’t be too terribly difficult, and I’m going to bake the potatoes instead of frying them.
We will see how that goes. If they turn out photo-worthy, you’ll see pictures! Haha.
Have a great Wednesday! ❤
