neon nymphs

Yes, sometimes I just hunker down and spend the day colouring in colouring books. I'm not sure what brought me to invert the colours, but I thought it looked kind of cool. Illustrations by Scott Altmann.

forest nights

Sometimes it's important for a teenager to live in a way that makes her feel like a teenager.

my pencil whispers images

I've always been a drawer. But I realize now how long it's been (since the summer, I believe) since I've actually sat down with my sketch book and observed a picture or subject long enough to record them through my perspective. I remember how good it belt to finally complete a drawing and be proud of it.

(I know, my signature sucks)

I used an old novel as a sketch book for a while when I lost my main one.

A drawing I did on the back of a paper placemat waiting for my meal :)

new things

My favourite Christmas gift, from my parents. I love it; I'll even wear it in the summer with excessive turquoise jewelry.

This silver cross necklace is my second favourite gift; my boyfriend bought it for my birthday, and I love it (and him) so much.

This jacket was a birthday gift from my parents; I wasn't sure how I felt about it when I opened it, but after trying it on I realized how much it surprisingly suited me, and how could I resist soft faux fur?

This cardigan is a gift from my sister; I loved it as soon as I saw it in the store, it's cozy and so soft and perfect to go with a black dress.

I bought this velvet bralet a couple of days ago, for $5! Of course it will probably have to wait until summer, but I think it will be worn well.

I bought this velvet-y knit short sweater at a thrift store not long ago and I've already worn it several times. 

A light poncho for summer months. 

This dress is similar to the above white cardigan; it's soft and furry/fuzzy, and it's unique.

Just a pine green tank top that matches my eyes.

A thrifted summer cardigan.

Another cardigan, probably for summer considering the drafty holes.

A fluffy/furry hoodie that cannot possibly fail to keep me warm.

This long, maroon poncho is super cozy and I wear it around the house all day. 

Striped crop top for parties or summer days.

A scarf and a lilac wrap for reading with a cup of tea.

A soft and cozy infinity scarf my Aunt knitted for me!

A light gold and turquoise scarf; thrifted.

Aaaand a stretchy infinity scarf from my best friend that I can wear in several different ways.

one picture four times

A picture of me in Dominican Republic, with freshly braided hair. When I found the photo I decided I wanted to make some improvements, since the background was a bit dark and messy. Here are my four favourites, though clearly I could have put more effort into them. 

Oh, and this song is stuck in my head right now; I encourage you to watch the video.
