FEATURED ARTIST: FRUIT KITTEN


Rina (fruit kitten) is based in a small town near Vienna, Austria. 
She initially intended on studying cultural and social anthropology, 
but always loved to draw and dreamed of one day becoming a tattoo artist of comic illustrator. 
Inspired by manga and anime as a child, she let both styles influence her creatively, 
but has managed to develop an artistic flare all her own. 
Each piece she finishes come complete with sweet deer antlers are super rosey cheeks. Rina pulls a lot of inspiration from observing nature, listening to music, 
and her appreciation for tattoo art. 
Her standard chosen medium is old school illustration with pencils and Copic markers. Only occasionally will she ever use a computer when drawing.

I adore Rina's work and I think you will as well!
Be sure to check out her other pieces via her instagram and official Facebook page!

AN AUTUMN PLAYLIST

BEDROOM DECOR UPDATE

These past few months have been a little crazy.
My family moved over the summer, and with a move comes a lot of chaos,
organizing, and settling in.
Now that we're a bit more established in our new home,
I really wanted to share some of my new decor with you!
I made some minor changes to my bedroom with fresh paint and new carpeting.
I found the carpet wholesale and super cheap!
There are still a few odds and ends that need to be purchased, 
but thus far I'm quite happy with my new space.
The first thing I did before changing anything out, 
was map out where my furniture would go, using blue tape.
I wanted to be sure that my existing pieces would all fit properly.
I made notes on my photos to remind myself of where I wanted to place specific items of furniture, and decor touches I wanted to remember.
The minor swaps I made took only a few days and made all the difference.
My room immediately looked bigger and brighter!
I'm so pleased with the way my room has turned out.
Still on the hunt for some new wall art and a clever way of storing vinyl records.
