I had a really good week last week. I mean nothing overly spectacular happened but it was a good week. I spent time with my FWB. I had a good day in court on Monday afternoon. Chillaxed on Tuesday. Wednesday I was back at the salon.
Sidebar: There is just something about putting on make up and cute clothes that makes you feel totally different when you walk around even in the house. I feel like a goddess almost. I mean don't get me wrong... I feel fine most days when I don't but its hard to feel funky when you look good period. I spend so much of my time in front of an easel and aside from the recently dubbed FWB I don't have a man and I live at home in the basement. So its easy to fall into the rut of paint splattered clothing and uncombed hair. However when the motivation hits me I try to keep rolling full steam ahead. The motivation this week and part of last week just happens to have been a clean laundry and new found old clothing I forgot I had. So I beat my face and put on some cute artsy clothes. My dress style is a hodge podge of Artsy, vintage, boho, gothic chic with a twist of ethnic. In a nut shell eclectic I suppose.
Now back to the week I had. So last week at the salon all had agreed that we were going out for one of our coworkers birthday on Thursday. We went to @Bar7DC where @WeAreBlackAlley plays every Thursday. She wanted everyone to wear her favorite color red. So since I had on purple and black (the two colors that reign supreme in my wardrobe). I had to run home and change into the one red blouse I own (which I don't feel represents my style at all but I'm a team player). I also switched to a smaller purse which functions better while dancing to the latest club banger. Needless to say we had a ball and each and every time I wonder why I don't do it more often.

Friday morning was here before you knew it. Although I had overslept because of the fun we had. I was determined to leave the house fully beat and in cute attire. Mission accomplished and was great. We all went had lunch together minus a few that had clients. I'm off on weekends since that's when I'm out on the art scene. Saturday was sleep in, wake up to Granny fixing breakfast, chillax while watching food network with Granny. Then about 3 I went down to watch a few make up tutorials on YouTube. I needed some new contouring tips. I took my shower, beat my face
and hit the streets again this time Lamont Bishop Gallery 9th street NW Washington DC for artist Aniekan Udofia's solo exhibit. It was packed with all of DC's finest hipsters.

Well boys and girls I'm off to see what this week brings about. However I do have to complete a large 30x40 painting by next Tuesday Feb 14 for a juried art show I am already in but the curator still has a protocol to follow. So hmm might not go out, well maybe...
