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?
