Illustrated recap of my October, so far. Trying to make the most of things and not go crazy. Take care!
(PS. Treated myself to a new dress from Nobody’s Child to cheer myself up. It helped, haha!)

I made this one in 2016 and I still own and use all the items on here. I’m trying to buy less stuff and it shows even in my drawings! ☺️ I hope you’re enjoying your summer as well, in the best way possible at the moment.💚

I’m melting here in my workspace. I accidentally broke my ventilator and it’s sooooo hot! One more hour and then I’m off to enjoy the evening sun. Stay cool and hydrated (and calm) out there! 🍋🍋🍋

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.
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! ☺️
I’m not much of a trend follower but I am totally embracing the neutral colour trend at the moment (yes, leopard print is a neutral!) Any trend that makes beige seem fresh and not boring is impressive, if you ask me ;)
I’m also still reading ánd working on my own little Happiness Project and my 19 goals for 2019, yay!
Illustrated recap of my recent trip to Gran Canaria. I enjoyed the nature, the food and the weather, had some great “accidental” adventures, met a lot of lovely people, slept on a beach under the stars, started a mini book club and drank quite a bit of Sangria. For now it’s back to work, but I can’t wait to go back to the beautiful Canary Islands!
Ps. The mini book club had 2 members who were both reading Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine by Gail Honeyman at the same time; A perfect holiday read, I enjoyed it very much!
