A lot of fun and exciting things have been happening. In case you didn’t know, Pugly Pixel (a gorgeous site about blogs and design) featured my fashion illustrations! Thank you so much, Pugly Pixel!!
What else? Today is the end of my shopping ban!! Well, I have pretty much exhausted my budget for the next couple of months.
Explanation: I heard this (true?) story of a man who was lost in the frozen wilderness for a long time.
He was finally rescued and fed. Although forewarned, he devoured so much so quickly that he basically killed himself.
…And that’s what resurfacing from the shopping ban was like.
I’m maintaining my spending spreadsheet and keeping track of what I purchase. (This really helps me stick to only buying things I truly love. When there’s a finite amount of money, you make every penny count.)
And, I definitely take advantage of the “free shipping/returns” policy a lot of places (Shopbop, Zara, Asos) offer. So, we’ll see how things pan out. Hopefully I don’t have to restrict myself for another three months.
But, at least I have some fun packages to anticipate – and some new fashion illustration subject matter!!
