Getting My Master Chef On...

Last night a friend and I decided it was time to eat in for a change - we are both in desperate need for coin! Anywho, we made turkey burgers and homemade ice cream sandwich's... So much for trying to eat healthy. And just quietly, both were DELICIOUS!!! Tip #1: mix seeded mustard into the burger pattie mix, it's EPIC. Tip #2:Chocolate chip cookies with boysenberry ice cream is a mind blowing combination.

"Always be Knolling" - Tom Sachs

This guy has just inspired the hell out of me! His need for organization, his willingness to leave imperfections, his pursuit of his own creative concoctions.  I resonated most with his mention of utilizing the time during production as a time to reflect on what your doing and how your doing it and perhaps endeavouring to think up what comes next as well as the fact that he finds that there is never enough time to just produce what he creates. I feel relieved and satisfied but also a little antsy to work on my own stuff after watching that... Just what I so desperately needed.

Up and Coming...

I had a meeting with a makeup artist - who also happens to be a friend of mine - on Sunday about a photo shoot she's planning. I couldn't be more excited about this styling gig!! The theme is right up my alley and to add my wild anticipation I happened upon the most amazing tattoo that I'm thinking of using to start my sleeve.... Don't tell me parents!! The tattoo is by an tattoo artist Angelique Houtkamp from Amsterdam. 

Hold your breath for this beauty...

I love these two as well but I feel I'd love them on my wall more than my skin.

The Little Things...

In early June it was my soon-to-be brother-in-law's birthday so I finally had a decent excuse to get my 'bake' on. Unfortunately due to my non-existent student budget it had to be a packet mix cake but, just quietly, that choc fudge cake with vanilla icing was one of the most scrumptious things I've ever introduced to my taste buds! 

It just so happened that I was on struggle street around that time so this mini celebration was the perfect little interlude that genuinely lifted my spirit.
