inspired by...

A lot of things have been going on in my head and I'm feeling inspired! I'm hoping that a lot of things will happen for me in 2013 but they won't just happen on their own, I've got to get them going. Style wise I want to add more colour to my life (I know, now that monochrome is coming into fashion again I turn my back on it). I was looking into my wardrobe the other day and I could not get over how many black skirts I owned. Black, black and white, black and grey, black and gold... a little bit one sided. So a colour injection (in the skirt department) is most definitely needed.

Also make up wise I have fallen in love with the fresh faced look, when your days are long you don't want smokey, smudgy eyes staring back in the mirror. I'm going to try some simple lipsticks, to keep me looking fresh. Not mad ones now but a red or soft coral or blush pink will go down nicely I think. Soups have become a little boring, same old veggie just isn't doing it for me. I want a bit of a kick and I have been drooling over these mexican inspired soups, full of good things and super tasty (I hope!)

I can't help but steal a few moments away to look at some new design work that's out there now, really interesting pieces that have been created without the need for computers (too much). This piece by Darren McPherson and Will Miller really has my creative flow racing! And finally I have been day dreaming about my future home. I think this year will be the year that I fly the nest and I really want to make my new (non-existant) place my own. I have commissioned (begged) my mam to make this blanket for my future abode! You know, something for the bottom drawer, as they say.

As always I have been inspired my the devil that is Pinterest. You can see for yourself that I have a problem.


  1. I find food has been so much more interesting and inspiring for me recently! Is that wrong?
    That soup looks amazing..

    1. No food is amazing! I'm such a fan of making food as delicious (and as healthy) as possible at the mo.
