I've decided that I will have two resolutions to keep:
1)Get my hair cut every 5 weeks so I could keep this look without looking like a bag lady.
2)Instead of being on my phone on my commute, I will doodle in my sketch book.
Two should be easy.
Anyways, yesterday I had my hair cut at the Onsen Ma in downtown Melbourne.
The hair salon itself is a bit out of place and lacked the charm of the rest of the onsen but I had wanted to try it out. Marie turned out to be really good and wide open at lunch time. Score.
I got the " Short in the back, long in the front" cut, a reverse mullet if you must.
On Tuesday, we had a staycation in the city.
What do you do with a staycation?
We had lunch snacks all over the city.
A vietnamese roll here.
A wonderbao there.
A milkshake to finish it off.
|Belles on Gertrude St was cute.|
Ice coffee was good.
|Wonderbao was hard to find and mediocre. I've never seen an asian establishment with no asians before.|
We also bought some art supplies.
I bought a sketch book, a small water colour paper book, a set of water colour and a really fine japanese black pen.
This was my doodle on the train yesterday:
|If you hadn't already guessed, I'm going to illustrate and paint our own Save the Dates and Invites.|
It's a small wedding, so hand drawing invites is totally doable.
Due to the fact that I don't water colour much, I did some research and here are some beautiful finds:
