Autumn leaves

Are you ready for fall? It’s starting to feel more and more like it and, although I will miss summer, I do love autumn. It’s just the coziest season, don’t you think?⁠

Expectations vs Reality: Holiday Style.

Above an illustrated recap of my recent trip to Northern France. Below you can see the (very stylish and sunny) picture I had in my mind before going. Here now, is the more realistic “after” version. The weather was pretty bad (no bikini needed) and the trip certainly had some challenges (including being stranded hours away from our apartment at night, and no taxi willing to pick us up) but the bread, wine and cheeses were so delicious it made up for a lot and almost made us forget about the rain!⁠

Reality: no bikini or aftersun needed. Raincoat instead.

Reality: zero time spend in the sea.

Taking A Break!

Hi everyone! Tomorrow I’m closing my Etsy shop until August 14, because I’m taking a small break. So if you need anything fast, today is your last chance to order until I’m back.

What to pack!?

Less than a week until I’m off to France for a short break. Time to start thinking about what to pack and hoping for nice weather.⁠ (It doesn’t look very good at the moment!🙁)

 

Happy Bastille Day!

Happy Quatorze Julliet to my French friends and followers! x

 

Summer Plans

The last 2 months have been so busy that I almost forgot to make summer plans! Most days I happily spend behind my drawing desk. I also don’t have much new clothes to draw because I’m still trying to buy less and only what I really, REALLY love, preferably vintage, like some of the “old” favorites on here. If I buy something new, I have to get rid of 2 similar items, which is not always easy, but still makes me feel good about minimizing my stuff. I did get some new art supplies, which always makes me very happy! ☺️

Stay cool!

Trying to stay cool and productive during this heatwave is a real challenge! These are some of my “heatproof” favorites at the moment.
