More unnecessary necessities.


















I often let my hair dry naturally, but in winter I absolutely need my hairdryer. For stuff like warming up my hands and  feet ...

















Let's just state it upfront: deep down I am quite shallow. What is life without lipstick? I have no idea, but I know that I have to have lipstick. Always. It is the one thing I would take to a desert island. Water? Moisturiser? Sunscreen?? Pfffffffffffrrrrrt.

My main cosmetic is mentholatum, never been able to wear lipstick...Rarely use a hair dryer because my hair is so stick like...coffee is the only thing I can think of as a necessity- so, I will bring some to your deserted island...I really love your drawings!

I never get out of the house without lipstick either.

A hairdryer is a necessity. Would have to wear a hat all the time without it. Deep down I'm shallow too.

I love these drawings Anairam - can we see more?! When I dry my hair my dog loves to be warmed up by the hairdryer and comes and sits right by me.

i use my hairdryer to make my paintings dry faster. Will try to remember your trick for next winter.

I agree on the hairdryer! It is also getting cold here and cannot walk out of the house without drying my hair.

i think that's the best twisted thought i've read in a long time "deep down i am quite shallow". which totally proves that you're not!

Lipstick I can do without, but not chapstick, this I absolutely need...and hair dryers are great for hair but mostly for speeding up drying time of my art journal pages...
I love these sketches, very spirited...

I agree, lipstick is a must!
What about the hairdryer, this is what I do in winter after I'm having a shower: I put on my bathwrap, bent face down and let come in from below the warm air from the dryer, making a warm tent; Bliss :-)
