Guest post with Tongue Tied in Awe | What inspires you?

Recently, I've asked several of my blogging friends, "What inspires you?" In a world of deadlines, papers, group assignments, textbooks, dates with the library, sleepless nights, lots of naps, caffeine, COLLEGE, I find a lack of inspiration at times. I never want to feel uninspired, ever and I hope my readers are constantly inspired by something everyday whether its from someone's outfit, a lecture, a blowing leaf or Pinterest. That is my goal of this blog, that you leave inspired. I'll leave it to my blogging friends to share with you what inspires them. Let me know if you'd like to do a "What inspires you?" blog post!

Here is Danielle from Tongue Tied in Awe. I am constantly inspired by her posts and her wonderful design. Be sure to stop by her blog and say hello!

Ciao bella! I'm Danielle from Tongue Tied in Awe, and I'd be lying if I didn't say that I get a huge amount of my inspiration from Pinterest. Now we don't want to start out our friendship like that, do we? ;) For me, Pinterest is a never ending source of beautiful photos, inspiring words, and design goodies. I probably spend way too much time on there, but it is so hard to resist. For you today, I have curated some of my current favourite pins. If you would like to see more, feel free to hop on over and take a glance at my boards here.

I am drawn to photos for a variety of reasons, but what usually catches my eye first is composition and subject matter. Merely changing those can alter a photo completely. I also tend to be drawn to photos that leave a little mystery. I love to try to guess what they were trying to portray - a lot of my ideas come from this process.

So, my friends, what keeps you inspired? I'd love to know. xo, Danielle
