Spending this long weekend for the most part working between a few commissions and some older work that I wanted to finish, like this one. Otherwise it has been quiet and ultra relaxing. It consisted of many naps, which I am not one to sit still let alone take a nap very often, but they were obviously needed. Also watched The Grand Budapest Hotel, which I now own due to keeping it far to long from redbox! oops.. (Good thing I liked the film), also reading endlessly and catching up on my summer stack of magazines, (I am starting to think I have a problem with those things) ;)

I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend as well and hello September!

Linda Rodin, an inspiration in age, beauty and style.. Period.

I draw from what inspires, when I can, and this weekend while getting lost on Pinterest (easy to do ) I fell down the rabbit hole of Linda Rodin's persona. I ended up with this illustration. (inspired by last photo ) She is truly stunning, all around.

Also with the colder fall days approaching, time to stock back up on these favorites from her line. Especially the lip balm, I have a natural deeper pink tone to my lips and this lip balm creates a perfect balance to lighten them up a bit. I also love to apply both of these throughout the day. Living in Colorado, I could use the best of moisture on a constant basis.

#MusicMonday on a Tuesday this week due to getting my sweet girl ready for middle school, which starts this week already! I think because she starts in the middle of August is why I am feeling the speed of summer fly by all too quickly. Remember when first days were after Labor day! She is excited though, which makes me proud and happy regardless of missing out on a few more lazy days of the summer, plus it's an excuse to plan adventures for when the weekends arrive.
