In April 2015, Little Rock Illustrator Sally Nixon started an art project called "365" in which she had to create one illustration per day for a whole year. As it was not that easy to think of new drawing ideas so frequently, Sally started to search for inspiration in her own life and simple routine moments that she's going through. The artist wanted to show the natural side of real women besides staged Instagram selfies, Snapchat filters, and all the other forms of social media that rule our world.

The women of Nixon's beautiful drawings are captured doing their casual everyday life things like taking a shower, eating in bed, brushing their teeth, walking around the house without pants, and having lazy TV time with their friends. In other words - women when nobody's watching.

"They don’t have perfect bodies or perfect habits and that makes them relatable,” she explains to TL Andrews. “The scenes I create around them are everyday places: a bathroom, a restaurant, a messy bedroom. However, my goal with each drawing is to elevate the seemingly mundane girl problems to something special.”

@Celeste Spaniel - LOL!!! You don't live with pets, do you? I am a pet nanny and with my own dogs? I can NEVER go to the bathroom alone. It's like having toddlers, but worse because they never grow up. My youngest dog, Dixie, whines outrageously if I dare not let her into the bathroom and have mercy on me if I want a relaxing bath? She is so worried I am drowning in there she's pacing and whining at me. A dog client of mine pushed his way inside this week and jumped on my lap while I was on the toilet!!! *smh* No boundaries...

I never go to the bathroom alone. It's standing room only: 3 dogs, a cat, maybe 4 dogs - 3 small, 1 large. Then they start playing. Entertainment in every room!

IF that's how women look when they meet up to spend time together, then me and my friends are weird - we laugh, enjoy ourself and definately don't wear a "This is such a waste of my time" or "Honestly I will kill you, or myself in a moment" expressions.

Accurate! Then when dry, you run your fingers under relatively warm water and the polish on the skin around the nail is easily pealed away.
