Sometimes a good quote or proverb can help you remember why you love what you love. So I really like it when I come across one that motivates you to try to do what you love. Here are some I like:

Some pretty pics from Pinterest, I love this site so much. I only just came across it a month ago and can't believe I hadn't found it earlier. Apparently my sister was already on it, but I've been spending a lot of time going through loads of images and pinning ones I love to my page.
Right now I'm having a very cosy evening by warming myself up with hot chocolate, watching a live stargazing programme on tv (they're talking about the partial solar eclipse this week) and rummaging on Pinterest. Ahhh, now to paint my nails.

Christmas is coming

When it comes to christmas I can be a little bit of a scrooge. I hate it when lights start going up in August, it's too early. This quickly changes when December comes around. I start getting excited that we're in the christmas month and that I've started getting presents together. Today feels like it's almost here, probably a lot to do with being warm inside while it's been snowing all day outside.

I added a tree backgroud that I drew especially, there it will be for the whole of December. Actually need to get a tree, we always get a real one but it might be the year to get a fake one. I really want a pink tree! Or a red one, I love the red trees outside the Chanel shop in the image below.

Happy Thanksgiving America

This isn't really a thanksgiving themed post but I just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving. I have family in America and currently they've all grouped together in Colorado to combine skiing in freshly settled snow and stuffing their faces. Me jealous? Of course not! Hmmm.

I came across Kris Atomic a few days ago and her lovely illustrations. Described as a result of fashion meeting illustration. Yesterday her shop opened up, selling prints and paintings. I got very excited by her fox print jumper painting, I would actually love a jumper like that. Such a cute little fox on the front and a gorgeous colourful knit pattern.

Based in Brighton, she's also a photographer and posts photos on her blog of out and about around Brighton. I also love her blog.
