5 MINUTE INSPIRATION

I’ve been getting back into my old routine, slowly but surely. Walks around the neighbourhood with my camera in tow, coffee in cafes,  catching up on inspirational blogs, and reading before bed. I’ve been neglecting what I’ve always loved to do, and getting back to them has been a bit of an uphill battle. I suppose I’ve been feeling guilty for taking timeouts and being able to set time away for myself has been harder than usual.

That being said, I’m trying to get back to my old self, which includes more running (Good grief how that’s gone to the wayside!) and more quiet moments with me, myself, and I. This morning was one of the first times I just sat in front of my computer with a cup of coffee and just let myself click through pages upon pages of good stuff. Below are a few of the goodies I’ve discovered.

Greg Washington has been documenting a 3 week road trip through the states with his wife on his photo blog Another Face In The Crowd, and they’re totally giving me the urge to take a trip myself.road-trip-37 road-trip-142 road-trip-278 road-trip-405 road-trip-390

Nicole Franzen has a terrific blog (and instagram!) , on which I was re-introduced to the beautiful work of The Block Shop.  I had never been on the blog before and now I have a new favourite; full of travel, dogs, creative processes, and although I rarely read through most blogs, this one is a goodie. The first two photos are from Nicole’s blog, and the following two are from Lily’s instagram.

The beautiful space that is Snog Productions, via Old Brand New.  The space was designed by Faith Blakeney and is oh so cool. Now, why can’t all workplaces look like this?

Loving the work of Kristina Krogh, including her great styling and beautiful site.

And a few more links!

  •  Food &_  was recently launched and I’m already smitten. I’m planning on going down to Portland some time soon and lo and behold, they have a list of places for great food in Portland!
  • I made the “Birthday Lasagna” via Food 52 last night.  made sure to have the bolognese simmering for an hour and a half and although I feel like ricotta instead of the bechamel sauce would be better, this lasagna was amazing, and even better the next day.
  • Marble is everywhere these days, and I’m really falling for this phone case by Julia Kostreva.

    Reading your blog – I could feel the space you were in – serenity and yet within you the raging fires of creative energy…. Such contrast and yet such aliveness… xoxo
