This semester I want to allow myself more freedom to get out of the house on weeknights. Last semester I would stress myself out over every little thing, so I have decided that if I start to feel like I'm going to explode then I should allow myself to move my work space up to the local coffee shop or to a friends house where I can think with a clear head. Environment changes can be vital when your mental health is at stake.
Last night I cleaned out a ton of old magazines (especially my 30 pound stake of Teen Vogues dating back to 2007). When I clean out magazines I don't toss them all in the garbage and be done with it. I go through each magazine checking for shoots that I remember and feel inspired by. For example the shoots with Emma Watson and Mia Wasikowska really stood out to me as exquisite. I also ripped out a few Juicy Couture ads, posters of Lily Allen and Florence Welch and random fashion shoots.
After collected a good number of images, I tapped them together and hung them up over my desk. This is my inspiration wall, and when I look over at the wall I can't help but smile at each and every image because they all speak to me in such different ways.
