Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

Four things that keep me happy

Would you rather be perfect at only one thing, or would you prefer to be mediocre at a lot of things? I'd honestly choose the former because the latter is just frustrating. Modesty aside I can do a lot of things well enough; I can grasp the concept and how it can be done right, but my talent for it can only go so far. Mediocre-far. It kills me but I guess the alternative is worse: being able to do nothing worthy at all.

Anyway! Let's start the week on a positive note. ^_^ I just want to show you some of the things that keep me happy.

I've mentioned I love the movie "Her". I also loved the song in there so I decided to learn it! My version of "The Moon Song" is a combination of the one in the film and the one sung by Karen O. I hope you like it. 

I loved drawing and painting things on paper before I loved painting my face. I've had my eye on Prismacolor and Derwent Inktense pencils for a while so I went ahead and got them for my birthday. They're pretty awesome! The Prismas are super pigmented, while the Derwent ink pencils are truly intense. Studio-level art stuff aren't cheap but worth the investment. Just like makeup, come to think of it!

I also got this book late last year. I enjoy doing fashion illustrations and this is just the thing to help me out! I hear the famous Soleil Ignacio also has one of these! The book is probably the most expensive book I ever bought (it's over a thousand bucks and yes I'm still not over i!) but it is pretty handy to have around.

I got these personalized cards from Ms Nelly See last Christmas. The set also comes with a notepad that has my name on it. Super cute. ^_^

So there you have it, stuff that make my life more interesting. What does it for you?
