Illustration: Pero Like it’s Curly for Pride

I was in the mood to try something different, and boy did that work out in my favor. When Buzzfeed’s Curly, posted up this image on his instagram, I just knew I had to draw it– and right on time for Pride!
Not only is he extremely charismatic, but a looker too! I wanted this drawing to express how vibrant his personality is. I added a lot of pink and blue tones to the lighting, and even debated if i should, but I just had to go with my gut. I absolutely love this piece and can’t wait to keep trying some new things!
Best,

What It’s Like to Know You Can’t Have Kids via Buzzfeed

I bumped into this video via the famous Buzzfeed. Recently I have shared with you all, that I have PCOS (Polycistic Ovarian Syndrome). Now, I know in my case having children in the future is not impossible, only merely difficult. I am also in no rush to have kids at the moment, but maybe in years to come I would like to know that I have that option.

I’ll be honest having faith and staying positive sure gets hard sometimes. Sometimes the negativity of it all can become overwhelming. Even though I’m not at the point of acceptance, if it never happens. It’s good to know that not having children won’t be the downfall of it all.

Online Find: What Do Strangers Think Of You?

We all have our insecurities. I for one, know I have a list of flaws I would love to work on or change. I wish my hair was longer and healthier, I don’t like how wide my shoulders are, my posture makes me feel self conscious, my tummy has more rolls than a bakery etc.

Recently Buzzfeed asked people to look in a mirror and describe what they saw. What they didn’t know was that there were strangers on the other side of the mirror, giving their first impressions. Though I feel like this would have been more powerful if there were more body types represented, the video has good intentions, and watching this made me smile.

We are our own worst critics.
