Finding Inspiration


I think it is safe to say that we all struggle with finding inspiration.  I find it so difficult to find the perfect inspiration for my posts, my outfits, and, at certain times, even my life; however, there are many ways out there to find some quick, easy, super inspiring stuff.  When I am struggling, I find most of my inspiration from Pinterest and Instagram.  There is always loads of great stuff I find through those social media outlets, but they are pretty basic.

I think the most unique way to gain inspiration is to read other blogs, read books, and, for me, window shop.  All of the reading really helps me pull inspiration for myself and my blog because it makes me think and gives me new fresh ideas!  Recently I have been reading The Devil Wears Prada and Humans of New York, both of which have been giving me some great inspiration and drive!

Lastly, my theory on shopping being inspiring.  I think that shopping really helps keep me updated on the new trends circulating and gives me items to create new outfits with.  I also love all of the catalogues/displays that I find while shopping.  They are always so interesting and I really get inspired after looking at all the pretty pictures!

So that is how I find inspiration, how do you find yours?

  3. I can definitely get behind the idea that shopping is inspirational, I mean it is my greatest skill in life lol. But I agree, Pinterest and Instagram can be very inspiring!

  4. Shopping is definitely the best form of inspiration, as well as just going for a walk around your neighborhood, people watching at the mall and definitely pinterest.

  5. I totally agree, whenever I'm having writers block I always turn to instagram or pinterest. I also like to ask my friends what they would want to read about, sometimes I get answers that I would have never have thought about myself!

  8. This is great. I keep a running list of blog ideas and anytime one pops into my head I add it to the list. Sadly, I don't have a lot of $ to shop, although I do enjoy window shopping. I find the easiest posts to write are what I am feeling at that moment.
