Monday Inspiration (8)

1. Speaking of inspiration. I have a problem. You see, I’ve been bookmarking favorites for this weekly feature for the past eight weeks. I haven’t taken the time to clear out my bookmark folder, meaning that now it is relatively impossible for me to find ANYTHING there because of the quantity of bookmarks. Methinks I need to clear out that clutter.

2. Food Inspiration. This brioche recipe from Seven Spoons. (link) Cookie Dough Swirl Marshmallows. (link) Chocolate Chip Cookie Mousse Bomb. (link) Me? Have a sugar addiction problem? Never! 

3. On the blog this week. Also, the second part of the senior shoot is coming this week. I’m SO excited. Seriously.


4. Random Inspiration. This lovely photo class is tempting me oh-so-much. However, I think that three other photography-related purchases are first in line. (link) I’m pretty much in love with the blog 17 and Baking. I’m loving this article on how she took her supplies with her to college. (link) hey mom, dad? I need a steamer trunk now…

5. The Hunger Games. “Does anyone else see the irony in our society being obsessed with The Hunger Games? IT’S KINDA SICK.” – Olivia Rae via Twitter. Um, yes. This is so true. (For reference, I read the first book, and have since moved on without reading 2 &3. Ha. So not obsessed.)

Have an awesome Monday!

Monday Inspiration (7)

Today is the third day of my spring break. I’m so excited to have an entire week + two weekends without school. This time will allow me to catch up on emails and such, as well as to work on a few new obsessions. (No, I’m not telling you yet…)

1. Food Inspiration. This lemon pudding from Cooking for Seven. (link) Joe Pastry’s website. (link) Potato Knish from Smitten Kitchen. (link) These cookies from Cannelle et Vanille. (link, link, link)

2. Photography Inspiration. This kitchen portfolio. (link) This color styling. (link) This photography post. (link) This amazing photographer. (link)

3. On the Blog This Week. 


4. Random Inspirations. This DIY tutorial. (link) These earrings – for a good cause! (link) This USB drive. (link)

I’ll be hosting a giveaway on my friend Liz’s blog this week – make sure to keep an eye out for that!

Also, on a side note – I’ll probably be putting up a vlog this week. Have a lovely Monday!

Monday Inspiration (6)

1:: Music Inspiration. This is my theme song, people. You should check it out. (I’m a big Natasha Bedingfield fan, in case you all couldn’t guess.) I’m pretty sure the best way to start out a Monday post is by listening to my theme song while I type, which is what I’m currently doing.

2:: Interior Design Inspiration. This loft from Sugar and Cloth? Love it! (link) I love reading Emmas DesignBlogg – I always find loads of inspiration there. Check out this post. (link)

3:: On the Blog This Week. I have this confession to make. But here’s the thing. I can’t make it until tomorrow. Actually, I have two confessions this week. One of them is that I switched from shooting in JPG to shooting in RAW. The other one, as I said, will come tomorrow. Also, I have a few posts from last week that I didn’t get to, so there’s loads of great stuff coming this week. (And another set of presets in B&W.)

4:: Food Inspiration. Multigrain Apple Crisps from Smitten Kitchen. (link) Pear Tarts from Oh Joy Cooks. (link) Soft Pretzels from Kyla Roma. (link)

5:: Blog Inspiration. Loving this post on Bella Vita. Gorgeous, no? (link) Also, ma madre is having this awesome giveaway on her blog. You should check it out. (link)

The earrings giveaway on Farmgirl Writes ends on Thursday. Follow this link to enter.


Inspiration Scrapbook {additions}

One of my readers, a sweet friend of mine asked me the other day to share more pages from my inspiration scrapbook. You can find the original DIY here for how to make your own. I’ve filled out many more pages in the book since then, so I’m excited to share some with you all. (Thanks, Sheean!)

The above page, from week 7 is probably my favorite thus far. 

Happy Saturday, my friends!
