Mermay has been one of my favorite drawing challenges on Instagram so far other than Inktober and Folktale Week.I have always wondered about mermaids and other mystical creatures. Deep down inside I’d love to be a mermaid for a day.
These are some of the drawings I’ve made for Mermay, originally created by artist Tom Bancroft, and I plan to continue until the end of May because it’s too fun not to.
I am trying to figure out how to continue to post on this blog and what topics my readers are interested in, using this website as a portfolio, and continuing to build my Instagram. I was thinking of creating a comic and posting it here. Let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in.
I still continue to adore makeup but can’t keep up with all the new releases nor my old posting schedule as I have three jobs at the moment. I know excuses seem lame and I am trying to consolidate it all. Thank you for contiuing to support my blog and content.
I love you all!

I’ve been drawing so much inspiration from Folktale week on Instagram and here are some highlights:
“Witch” (based on Hansel and Gretel)
“Magic” (based on the Scandinavian folktale “Saving Spring”)
Above is a screenshot of the prompts if you’re not familiar with them. Folktale week wasn’t nearly as popular as Inktober, but just as inspiring and fun. I’m a huge fan of folktales and children’s books and illustrations. Folktale week on Instagram and here are some highlights.

Believe it or not, summer is not my favorite season. My favorite is actually the one with fiery colored leaves, crisp mornings, and the one in which pumpkin spice lattes pervade everyone’s vocabulary; yes fall! So I am more than excited about what Fall 2016 has to offer.
In the mean time, I’m still into midi skirts, ankle strap sandals, and Marc Jacobs and Dolce and Gabbana-inspired daisy appliques. What’s your favorite season?
PS: I’m really feeling down about Orlando and the horrific crime that went down there. All I can say is more live, less hate. Please.
