Art

June 29, 2012

Snapped these pictures last weekend when we visited the local Arts Festival. If you read my About me page you’d know about my love for Art. Wore my most comfy/hippy style C&C California maxi dress for the occasion. A hat and a makeup free face are a must for me if i am going to be out in the heat for a while. You don’t want a melting face. Below are some of the pieces I found interesting. Hope you…

Oxtail Stew

June 14, 2012
