Well that certainly got your attention didn’t it?! Sorry to say but I won’t be giving you some enjoyably cringe-worthy rhetoric on my love life and how to find it. I am referring more to how hard it can be to find content I love enough to post about. Most weeks, I am bursting with ideas and inspired by almost everything I happen to come across, and other weeks I am scouring my go-to sources in a panicked state. And really, when will you ever find anything in a state like that?

This week has been one of those weeks… Feeling rather lackluster, which may have something to do with the fact that everything I touch either seems to go wrong or stop working, I have been struggling to feel that hint of exhilaration when you discover something truly special. Don’t worry, it’s not you, it’s me… it really is.

So in an attempt to get brainstorming I stepped back and…

a. Poured through the pages of Sibella Court’s ‘Etcetera

b. Reminisced over travel photos

c. Bought my first sketch book and pencil set and began sketching ideas

d. Re-opened one of my favourite books – Recycled Home by Sally and Mark Bailey

e. Indulged in some retail therapy

f. Hell, I even bought some neon thread just because I liked the colour

I wouldn’t exactly say I am cured from my failure to see brilliance yet, but things are on the up. It got me thinking though, how many of you lovely fellow bloggers have similar days or weeks? Or is it just me? Do you wait patiently until that inspiration comes back or do you have rituals, places, or things that help? I’m off to style a Summer wardrobe today – let’s see what the day will bring!

  1. You just described my week. It sometimes really bothers me that what worked the past weeks, doesn’t necessarily means it works the coming weeks too. But hey! You will do ok! Just keep believing in yourself and your plans, work hard, but also take your rest and don’t give up!
    You got such an inspiring blog and I’m curious to see more of your hand ;)!


  2. I definitely have days and weeks like this and I hear your frustration! I usually go for a long run and stuff tends to pop into my head, but I will peruse through old travel photos and some of my favorite books as you did – great suggestions and love the post!

  3. I love this I think you should do more of what you have done in your week 😉 because what’s happened in your week seems a lot more interesting than mine ;D
