Telmo Pieper’s artistic skills have certainly took on a different direction since his childhood. A Dutch muralist, Pieper digitally recreates – via photoshop – drawings he made when he was four years old. 

I have a few of my own childhood doodles an arms-length away. It’d be interesting to see how I reinterpret it now that I’m all “grown up.”

A Long Way Down starring Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots. 

Jess: Okay. Just got a few things to clarify. Number one: my gown is open backed cause they’ve stolen my clothes so I’m just going to do a twirl for you right now and you can look at my ass just once. It’s not my best feature but that’s something that you’ll probably find out the more we get to know one another. 

Something light for a movie night. Mind you, when I say light I’m not referring to the plot line where four suicidal individuals cross paths on the day they all want to commit suicide. Despite the subject matter I didn’t find this movie to be depressing. Imogen Poots was most definitely my favorite character hence the quote up top. The dialogue that her character brings adds a little kick to it all. For me, this is something to watch on a day where I don’t feel like any of the usual movie genres suit my moods. So consider this movie on a day where you need an in-between.

Realizing that I had forgotten to upload this new pair of earrings to my Scavenge collection is such a nice surprise. On any other day I would’ve shouted, “Seriously?!” to myself for forgetting but not this week! Reason being is because like the klutz that I am, I cut the fatty drumstick part of my palm (have no idea the right term for it) with a fork last night. Yes…a fork. I was prepping kiwi for a smoothie when the slow motion accident happened. I’ve been so busy during the day that I haven’t had much energy to make new items for the shop so I hope Cordilla makes up for it while my drumstick heals!

Needing a little more energy to push through the remaining week and a bit till I get my one week summer break.

Abracadabra! I now have freshly blended kiwi, peach, orange, and banana juice. So yes, I consider the Magic Bullet to be one of the great magicians of our time. This is totally not a sponsored post — I’m just genuinely happy about invention because having my daily intake of fruits and vegetables somehow makes me feel less guilty about sitting at my desk the whole day during work.

Cross my heart — I haven’t forgotten about my beloved blog. Work has been, and is, incredibly busy to a point where it’s gotten a bit overwhelming…Not to mention that there is always that one or two colleague(s) who speaks so condescendingly and belittles my existence that I start to wonder about their humanity. Needless to say, I’m so beat and tired. I wish this week would just hurry up so that Saturday can meet me with open arms.

It’s late and I can’t wait to fall asleep but there’s a mosquito in my room. I absolutely despise mosquitoes because my body forms a horrible allergic swelling reaction to their bites. On the other hand, mosquitoes seems to just adore the life out of me since I’m that one person that gets bit in a room full of people. The above image is a imprint display of what happened to a mosquito that landed on my leg. I don’t think I’ll be able to fall asleep till I slap it flat…

Beginning of the shoot...Where my body hasn't reacted to the heat yet, hence the smiling. Ballon in face! Melting in the sun at this point. I look like one of the seven dwarfs about to walk out of a job to initiate a strike.

[Outtakes from today’s shoot: Blue Valentine cotton tote]
It has been dumping rain on and off throughout the week and it finally cleared up this Sunday — it got sweat-like-a-pig hot to be precise — so I bought some helium balloons and shot at the recently knocked down karaoke joint in a nearby town. The shoot, as always, was great but it wasn’t all fun and games (as evident in my flustered expression above). The sun was blazing hot and the wind made the balloons absolutely impossible (how did Mr. Fredricksen and Russell do it?!). The balloons beat at my head like I was a drum and my hair was spiked up, splattered across my face and extended onto the balloons because of the static electricity. And did ya know balloons have the tendency to explode right next to your face during a shoot because the temperature is too high? Still, some of the images turned out great which is all that matters and I got to finally list the tote in shop. So what are you still reading this for? Check the shop out for Blue Valentine, the tote, not the movie! 

Of all my hand-painted totes, my Save it For a Rainy Day tote has been getting a steady stream of views every single day for the past month. The tote has been long gifted to someone whom I care about. I’m hoping to photograph a new tote tomorrow if the weather holds up so stay tuned!
