DIY: Inspiration Book :)

This post is a bit different than my other posts, but it still has to do with beauty, fashion, and blogging :)

I think we can all agree that everyone can get a little uninspired sometimes.  We do things, and as the days pass, it can get to be a bit monotonous - we all need a pick-me-up sometimes.  So what i've done was made an inspiration book!

I took an old two inch binder, a whole lot of plastic sheet protectors, scissors, old magazines, and a few printed out photos from the internet, and this is what came out!
If i'm feeling down, i may pick this DIY inspiration book up and flick through it a bit.  It reminds me of the reasons why i do what i do :).

The main reason i decided to make this book was not because i was in need of a bit of inspiration, actually - it was because i had an excess of magazines hanging out in my closet!  I couldn't bring myself to throw these all away, so i ripped out the pages i liked the most & put them into this book :)
Witness the plethora! :O


The first page has pictures of New York City because i wish to live there someday & at the time that i started this i was dead set on going hehe :) ♥.

Here are some more examples of pages this book contains!
You'll find:
♥ quotations
♥ pages from editorials, spreads
♥ a lot of pages from Urban Outfitters catalogs
♥ miscellaneous photos from the internet
♥ eye candy aka pictures of cute boys :)
Enjoy!

What inspires you?

  8. that is a really good DIY idea! I guess it's so much neater than sticking all inspirations on bedroom walls, where you could just carry it around anywhere ♥ it's beautiful love.
