In my make up bag...Tuesday, June 18, 2013
I think my favourite thing about becoming a blogger is reading other blogs and always feeling inspired... Inspired to try a new style, to take better photographs, to create, to make, to bake. Being inspired and buzzing with ideas is the best feeling. Hence this little post.
Recently I was reading one of my fav american blogs Oh Joy and she featured her make up essentials but instead of photographing them she had them illustrated. I thought this was such a nice idea, a way of changing something quite common in the blogosphere and making it different. Granted she had a professional artist illustrate them for her, but as my little blog is just run by me I thought Id attempt this myself. I havent touched watercolour paint since I was about 15yrs old so over ten years ago so I am for sure very rusty. But it was fun and inspiring & I hope you guys like it...
