I hope you’re all well lovelies and have had a good week so far; mine was extremely busy.. Today was initially my day off, but work called and I have to go in soon! I honestly hate being at home- especially in the summer! Summer is the best time when you’re a blogger inspiration everywhere, sun is out and you actually want to venture outside- whether it’s in London or not!
..Well considering I’m writing this up, I’ll was still a tad busy.. I started filming a beauty video and ended up coughing (gross I know) and laughing by making silly faces.. I find it hard to be serious and very professional on camera -when it’s for a youtube video.. Then went to gym, sorted out work schedule.. WORKING EVERYDAY THIS MONTH! BUT, I have challenged myself to blog 5 times a week.. OK.. breathe in and out.. (So not much of a day off)…
About to head off to work now, in the sun- can’t really complain can I..
What do you guys do for work? Do you find inspiration at work, outside of work? Work can be crazy, I don’t stop to look for inspiration, which is truly shit, and inspiration hat thrown in the bin!
Despite what others say, because actions always speak louder than words, finding ways to stay inspired can really be hard. Take it from me, not to humble brag, but from my past experience when I was at university and had a full time job (presenting) which was crazy and intense at times -working 7am-3pm, 3pm-11pm, 11pm-7am while being at uni on some shifts and working on my dissertation at 4am on studio break times and keeping up a blog- inspiration had to come from somewhere, right?! Right now, I’m everywhere, presenting, working in events, shoots, working in my talent agents..
So here are my secrets:
1) Plan ahead..
Yikes, sounds like you’re back to square one, but, honestly, it’s best to write down, or type it up on my your phone of how your day looks, when you have free time and locations.
It amazing to know when you actually have free time; you can allow yourself to go back into your own world, check out a musuem, go into a book store, check out the new collections in your favourite stores and find inspiration! When you have a clear view of your day, you’re able to slide in your own hobbies and ‘me’ time and you’ll be able to find inspiration anywhere!
2) Art Galleries!
Whether it’s an art gallery, or a vintage shops which sells incredible art pieces, you’ll feel yourself immersed with creative ideas and will want to grab your own materpiece ideas and do something about it. It’s a driving force to focusing on your masterpieces, whether it’s that script you’ve always wanted to write, a book, painting, or wanting to change your body. You”ll look at something finished and will want to start something you can call your own.. right?!
3) Appreciate nature, #treesonfleek
Seriously, it’s easy. Leave your phone behind and appreciate nature. It’s so beautiful, wonder about in the park, take time to surround yourself with animals and grab some inspiration around you- natural earth points! My boyfriend and I ventured out to Bushy Park and we had the best time. The deers were quite hungry, also came shooting around me and poked their heads- My initial reaction was to run, as fast as I could! It was quite funny as they are harmless, but they were too close to comfort! But finding areas in the park was amazing for photos! My boyfriend took these so appreciate his (progressing) photography skills- sorry adam, you are currently a downgrade! #sorrynotsorry!
