Lately, I've been spending too much time on my art and not enough time on this blog.  Since I love art equally as much as fashion, this has left me thinking that I'm being a little unfair with my time.  I feel almost guilty about spending too much time with fashion (ie my blog, shopping, etc).  But when I draw or paint for hours on end, I feel fulfilled and hungry for more art.  But at the same time, while I'm painting, fashion is always at the back of my mind.  It's weird.  I want to have enough time for both fashion and the same time.  It just doesn't always happen.   Most of the time I have to choose between the two.  I feel like I'm married to art, but having an affair with fashion.

Do any of you ever feel that way? Do your interests ever clash with your career?  It seems that two of my passions in life are always colliding.  Maybe it's a good thing because I'll always crave one or the other.  And I kind of like that it keeps me on my toes.  But it's annoying!

  18. I dont have time to do anything anymore unless I want to be labeled a dead beat mom. I bought all this chain to make headbands but I cant stay up past 9:30 pm. I want to hike, take vacations, play dress up, sew, and craft but there is not enough time for that. We've got pumpkin patches to go to and people to see. I do remember many years ago when I used to be in this writing group in Sacramento. Their meetings were Saturday mornings at 10. Once I started dancing folklorico, I could never go to the meetings and the lady there told me she understood "the struggle between the arts" or something like that. But it is better that way that you know how to live life and occupy your time cause kids these days just sit on their iPhones. Oh, and I'm glad you got the magazines I sent you and are putting them to good use. I told Nacho if we lived in the same town (you and I) if he thought we would be best friends and he said yes bajajaja. Get it girl.

  19. Super cute crochet top!

    I'm actually quite lucky because i work in online marketing and i can do this job in the fashion industry (which I'm not doing yet but would love to do at some point). I never feel like I'm having an affair with fashion but I definitely wish I had more time to devote to it.

    I think you shouldn't overthink it. It's amazing that you've got 2 passions :) You're very lucky!

  20. Perfect boots, and whole combination.
    Would you like to follow eachother? Let me know.

  22. My interests are forever clashing with my career. I think I would be quite fabulous if I didn't have to beat out a paycheck every two weeks.
