This is probably one of the best things to ever happen to me… and not in the way that most girls claim that most things are the best things to ever happen to them (like “this pizza” or “this warehouse sale” or “Ryan Gosling”).

I recently came across the Instagram account @ArtlexaChung; the unique pairing of art & Alexa Chung. It was one of those genius/stupid ideas that you wish you thought of yourself, will hate yourself for not thinking of first, but so glad it exists because it makes you so ridiculously happy.

Art-Lexa’s Instagram & Tumblr accounts (artlexachung.tumblr.com) are run by sister dup, Beatriz & Maria Valdovin, of Zaragoza, Spain.

Bueno, ladies. Muy Bueno.
