What Inspires Me: Part 1

Well, I’m back! Sorry for not posting in the past couple of weeks, it’s been absolutely crazy! But I’ve finally managed to sit down and write a few blog posts for you!

We all have our different channels of inspiration. Whether it’s for your own personal growth, or your work. I know that my parents love being inspired by nature and the outdoors. They’ll go on walks and come back feeling really refreshed and creatively inspired. I am completely different. Don’t get me wrong I love the outdoors and going on walks but it’s not something that will inspire me, but more tire me out! I’m gonna share my channels of inspiration in a four part series over the next week.

1. Pinterest and Vogue Magazine

Pinterest is one of my ultimate inspiration platforms. Pinterest is a visual bookmarking tool that helps you discover and save creative ideas. You can create different boards to suit different topics such as ‘Fashion’ or ‘Food’ etc. I often find good recipes and meal plans, great outfit ideas and amazing wedding photos or gorgeous shots that make me think ‘hmm, yeah I could use that!’ I absolutely love it!

With Vogue, its slightly different. Not only do I love high-end fashion and the gorgeous clothes, but also the artistry that goes into each shoot. There’s a concept and a story behind every picture and that is often something I want to get across in my work. I’ve had my magazine subscription for just under a year now and it’s well worth it! Every time it arrives in the post, I will try and find a spare half an hour to look through all the glossy pages and read the articles. It’s even better when they give you free samples!!

Feel free to follow me on Pinterest here!
