i haven't been feeling very creative or motivated over the past few weeks. it's been frustrating, and it definitely doesn't feel very good. i realized it had been a long time since i last picked up a pen and drew anything. drawing almost always helps me feel better! it's relaxing and helps me chill out for a bit.
i spent a few hours drawing some of the things i bought last week. i am trying to be a bit more mindful of how i spend my money, and these illustrations help put things into perspective. i probably shouldn't have spent close to $6 on only two grapefruits at whole foods... but they were so good that i don't really regret it! next time i'll buy them somewhere else.
i had read about this root lifting hair product on a blog and wanted to try it out! my hair is seriously flat and i'll try anything that promises volume and bounce. on my way to the checkout line i got distracted by the packaging of this face wash–no really, it's so pretty! the hair product ended up being a miss for me, but i really like the face wash!
fine point pens and pencils are my everything. i used both of these pens to make these illustrations!
i'm still limiting my coffee intake and only drink it during the weekend. i make it worthwhile, though. helloooo caramel swirl iced coffee. (also, technically i bought this with a gift card so it didn't cost me anything!)
i've had my eye on the swing trench coat from everlane for almost a year. it arrived late last week and i love it! if anyone else is thinking about ordering it, i would suggest going a size down as it has a boxy shape to it. i'm usually a medium, but i still have plenty of room to move around in the small!
