Good Evening My Loves,

This past weekend I had the great fortune of meeting the gorgeous and endearing blogger Ania . B!! When I found out she would be in town for a fashion blogger's conference I was ecstatic over the opportunity of seeing her. You can check out a photo of our Marc by Marc Jacobs shopping extravaganza on her blog here. One of the sweetest individuals ever, I'm so fortunate to have met her. Furthermore, my class has been preparing to illustrate at the Oscar De La Renta show tomorrow. We practiced by illustrating the make-up room backstage at an FIT fashion show.

I've been really trying to push myself and challenge my comfort zone when it comes to my illustrations this week. It feels like all the instructions I've collected over 4 semesters is finally falling into place. I love going faster, letting go of my fears of perfection, seeing what comes out when I let myself go. I feel myself improving in my ability to think about what requires definition and what can be left to draw itself. I guess in a way it's all a reflection of me growing into myself, embracing all the mistakes along the way. Feels like Valentine's Day really worked this year :)

Much love,
Meag xx

  1. Being busy is always a good sign!
    I like this line, "I feel myself improving in my ability to think about what requires definition and what can be left to draw itself." So poetic! :)

  2. I am glad you are enjoying this busy period of time. sounds like things are going well. I'm happy for you :)


  3. I am so excited and happy for you!! It's very nice when one can translate a very busy period in enthusiasm and strength to do even better: because you're doing what you like.

    I hope you will show us the results of your illustration session at Oscar De La Renta!! I love his collections, and I would really like to see this through your talented eyes :-)

    I loooove the first drawing with all my mights (also the other ones are extremely beautiful, but with the first one I just fell in love!) ahaha really! Can I buy it? :D

    (in the end, I didn't have time to enter your giveaway... and also didn't find a decent pic of myself to send for it... and also didn't find JUST ONE collection I loved ahah)

    A big kiss
