Lost: Inspiration and Imagination

A strange thing has happened to me this past week or so, it’s something that took me quite by surprise as I have never been accused of having any issues in this department before. I have lost my inspiration and imagination. I have writers block, bakers block, sentence constructing block, and any other possible block a girl can have.

I have looked everywhere for my I&I, I have scaled many a cook book, trawled countless online shopping sites, flicked through numerous glossy magazine and even spent hours sifting through Pinterest with no avail!

Its been a busy and stressful time for me recently and I fear my I&I have relocated to poolside sun bed on a tropical island, sipping cocktails whilst dreamily looking out at the volcanic framed crystal clear waters for some much needed R&R – if only they took me with them!

A little inspiration to get me through the day‏

I sometimes have days where I find it impossible to pep myself up. I’m naturally a bubbly person, so when I get into one of these moods I find it’s incredibly annoying.

One thing that helps me refocus is to search for something to inspire me – a new seasonal recipe, exciting ways to organise your home, latest trends in fashion and design, or even just beautiful imagery that lets my mind escape from reality for just a moment and live in a romantic parallel world.

Here are a few things that are exciting me at the moment:


Comfort cooking

Magazine fix

Magazines – trashy, glossy, food and home deco

Sky High and Magnetic Coral

My latest nail polish and lipstick

Planning my next dinner party

Planning dinner parties – my favourite way to entertain
