Mornings Often Burn

Even when you think you’re ready for it, the light engulfs you in the mornings. Sometimes, the windows are covered and sleep continues unhindered but sometimes, they’re uncovered and the light creeps slowly on your skin until every cell in your body knows it is the waking hour.

Dujour magazine is a bi-monthly PRINT & DIGITAL magazine with a blog that keeps dishing out awesomeness. Editor Letitia Burrell wanted a magazine that would relay “high fashion that inspired while at the same time mixed with realistic fashion she could attain, all with a generous dose or artsy fun and intelligence”. And I’m glad that she did, because they sure do deliver!

And recently, Letitia posted an article on the prettiest rooms in “If Only My Rooms Were Filled With…” which I’m clipping for inspiration. Some day soon, I’ll turn my room around into something as inspiration and not just functional.

Also note, that once you start to follow their blog, you’ll grow to love their confectionery addiction. You’ll probably develop your own constant lust for cupcakes.

I Have to Remind Myself to Stay Inspired

There comes a time when I feel a wee bit overwhelmed with current projects that I start to burn out. So I dip into my “Creative Inspiration” folder to keep myself inspired. I would love to credit them accordingly, unfortunately, I haven’t marked their owners diligently, so I hope you don’t mind if I skip out on the source for now.

Do you have your own “Creative Inspiration” folder? Or perhaps you have hard copy clippings tucked away on your desk inside an inspiration book?

Well, I’ll rest my eyes on these lovely pieces for a while longer and get myself motivated to tackle more work!
