1. Chuck Close. I started writing a top 5 list of my favorite exhibits at the Modern and he is one of my favorites, and I started reading more about him and was even more inspired. He struggled with dyslexic and had trouble in school but applied himself in art. His parents got him sessions with a professional art teacher when he was 10 and even then he was extremely talented. He also has Prosopagnosia, which means he cannot recognize faces which is very interesting because all he paints is portraits. The biggest difficulty he has overcome is finding a way to paint again after he became paralyzed. Most of my favorite pieces of his are after he was paralyzed, I wonder if something happened to me would I still have the drive to create and make things?

I found some super cute slip ons at where else Target, these are a similar style same color palette.
|look at the cute owl print lining :)|
I think Lucky Brand is really underrated, they have really cute vintage styling and use nice quality leather, I have been looking at their bags off and on for awhile. I almost bought a huge suede bag with western styling because it was on clearance but I successfully talked myself out of it :)
But not this time I went back on forth on this cute little crossbody it's kind of narrow at the top but I can still fit my fat old school wallet in there so I am quite pleased!
I've gotten slightly back into the swing of things with baking and I'm excited to experiment and Gesine really gets me inspired. Her memoir is hilarious and includes recipes, and she's also
Sandra Bullock's sister so that's kind of fun. I can't wait to try some more of her recipes out.

This is an old performance but I don't care, I still love it.
