Step Back and Relax

Ah it's been a while but it's been pretty hectic lately. Spring vacation hit the school and I ended up having to sub for people going on vacations, sick, weddings, funeral. Boy am I tired. I did have a wonderful four day mini vacation with my bf but couldn't hit Washington D.C for the Cherry Blossom Festival =( . I also ended up finishing a few sketches like the one above. I really loved how it turned out and figuring out the lighting and shadows was an especially fun challenge!

I've been so busy I've forgotten to do answer a few questions:
To LittleClouds on where I got the Panda Head and costume: My cousin got it from ebay for his club and I've decided to use it to cosplay during Otakon =D.
To Pili on whether it'll be too hot to wear it for Otakon: Hopefully it won't be too overwhelmingly hot in Baltimore. Otakon is held in the convention center where it is (thankfully) air conditioned. I think the hotel that is booked this year is close to the convention center so I won't be outside for too long =D

I think life goes by so fast and we're bombarded with everyday things that we forget we need a little break. The above lil print reminds me to sit back and relax with a steaming cup of green tea and have hot bath melt away those daily stress that builds up.

Until next time... what do you do to relax and unwind from the everyday? =D

As I already said about the print... It does have a soothing effect and its colours are soothing for the eyes too!

Whenever I have a day off that I can dedicate to relax at home, I love sitting in the sofa and reading a nice book, have some tea or a nice cappuccino and take some shots!

Love this print! Sorry you didn't make it to the Cherry Blossom Festival. We went and the weather was perfect. There were quite a few cosplayers out too.

oh i love love love this print. It is so easy to get caught up and overwhelmed from life.
I like reading with a cup of tea or I do a "Megan Spa Day" where I put on a face mask, soak my feet and paint my toe and fingernails. It's something small but it is totally relaxing!
