how do you get inspired?

I'm in the process of writing a guest post for another blog (more on that later) about how I get inspired.

There are lots of ways to get inspired and a LOT of places to find inspiration. You just have to know where or how to look for it. Okay, that's the teaser for my inspiration guest post that's coming soon.

But speaking of inspiration, do you ever see a picture of something or an advertisement that makes you stop what you're doing and take a second glance? I am a connoiseur of magazines and voraciously read them. One thing magazines are known for is their advertisements. I saw this one in an issue of Lucky AND my latest Cosmo issue. It literally made me stop thumbing through the ads and take a long look at it. I even tore it out of the magazine and pinned it up on my bulletin board.

Here it is. It's Bryce Dallas Howard's ad for Kate Spade New York.


I'm not sure if it's the colors (because y'all know I love some color), the dress, the shoes, her beautifully pale skin (hollla!) or just how amazing she looks. But this ad is just flat-out awesome. It's so happy and pretty...and inspiring.

Here's another one. I'm not sure which ad is more recent, but they both are so cool.


What's inspiring to you? 


  1. I love these ads! They are a beautiful!

  2. I get inspired by being in nature.

    On rainy days or when I can't get outside, I look at beautiful blogs like:


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
