Inspire and BE inspired.
As a creative person I would say I have a sort of dreamy outlook on life. I kind of like to think of it as chapters from a book, songs from an album, one scene that will follow many more.
When it comes to the blog I feel like I overthink myself sometimes, instead of doing what I should and just grabbing my laptop and typing away,no plan just natural thoughts.
I do find, however, it helpful to look to other outlets for inspiration sometimes.
I find that late at night, when I should be getting some zzz’s I instead can’t seem to settle my brain which is in overdrive with the amount I’m thinking about. I get my most creative thoughts at nighttime, sometimes even as I’m drifting of to sleep which can be a pain because I don’t always remember the idea the next morning.
I also love watching television shows/documentaries and vlogs and getting really inspired. What happens here is I’ll watch something and become totally immersed in it and binge watch the entire season, if there is one, within 24-48 hrs.
Don’t you just love it when you watch something and become really eager and motivated to get sh*t done. Like when I’d watch ‘Bridget Jones Diary’ or an episode of ‘Sex and the City’ and I’ll immediately want to start doing some writing, jotting down my thoughts as the process flows.
Recently I found that seasons 1 and 2 of ‘Fashion Bloggers Tv’ have been uploaded to Youtube under the same channel name, link; https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChpCpZeauJUdpZXDTwwi64g
If you’re like me and fashion obsessed then you’ll fall in love with this show and be totally obsessed with these bloggers. The reality show follows Australia’s top bloggers.
Kate at http://katewaterhouse.com/
Sara at http://harperandharley.com/
Margaret at http://shinebythree.com/
Zanita at http://zanita.com/
Amanda at http://oraclefox.com/
Nadia at http://fairfaxjournal.com.au/journal/
Each of these digital influencers brings something different to the internet world. I love Sara’s concept of a minimalist wardrobe of greys/whites/blacks, so chic, simple and stunning- defo my kind of style.
And Nadia’s fashion journal contains stunning photography.
It’s so impressive to watch these ladies build their empire’s, especially in the case of Margaret who while filming season 1 and running her blog and working as a freelance photographer was also a student at law school.
I was so intrigued by their business savvy behaviour and self belief and work ethic. I don’t know how you can’t be inspired by these gals after watching. I know that as soon as I finished, all I wanted to do was go off with my camera and get creative with my own blog. I haven’t yet really introduced any fashion pieces yet (besides the Alexa Chung post) but you never know what’s to come in the future.
There’s definitely more to come from gurlthinking! I’m determined to inspire as many of you as I can.
What inspires you? Let me know in the comments.
