I love grocery shopping. It’s a chance to stock up on food for the week and refill any of the basics I’ve used up. Going through the aisles I always see things I want to try. Each week I try and pick a new food or brand that I’ve never tasted before. I usually shop at Trader Joe’s so there are always new funky things to try.
Some of my favorites are trying out their different cookies or pastries. Last week I bought the frozen chocolate croissants and thought I had experienced heaven on earth. You put them out the night before, let them rise and pop them into the oven for 15 minutes first thing in the morning while you’re grabbing a quick shower. You get a delicious, warm breakfast with almost no work or clean up!
In the winter it’s so easy to fall into the rut of always wearing black. You look in your closet and anything colorful only seems to draw attention to the fact that you really did eat 2 whole bags of chocolate for Valentine’s Day and that your gym workout has digressed into walking 5 minutes to the T every day.
This drawing focuses on the idea that bold colors can be neutral and are just as flattering. This bright blue has a classic silhouette that hugs her body and elongates her legs by having darts down the center and sides helping to accentuate her hourglass figure.
