I really want to try the lettering!! I think it looks so cool and is such great inspiration! Will definitely be trying my hand at that this evening. I've always loved making collage/moodboards though. I think they're really great for motivation! Lovely tips! thelifeofastudenttraveller.blogspot.co.uk

this was so truly inspirational! great job and i love the tips that you gave above! they are so helpful <3

You have handled your situation admirably! I've had a couple of almost terrible accidents whilst surfing in Bali last year and it's safe to say it definitely knocked my confidence, but I agree and think that staying inspired is key! I really admire your will and determination to master surfing! Really inspiring post! thelifeofastudenttraveller.blogspot.co.uk

That wood carved hall tree... 5th pic from the top, is stunning!! Please share where you found/got it! I'm nesting in my new home and am scrounging like crazy for a piece like this! :)
Anisha -Jan 30, 2015, 6:32AM
the pictures above are absolutely amazing! as for colours that i love, i like having whites in my room such as sheets and walls and then adding bright pops of colour here and there like artificial plants and a photo frame, just stuff like that!

Nature allows me to soak in the present moment. It can act as a much needed reminder in a busy day. Thank you for posts like this! The Power of Now book club sparked me to read that book at an opportune time. This new selection sounds great. The photographs with quotes are beautiful.

I actually have this book on the way to me as of right now! I saw where you had posted about it last week, and that's when I ordered it. :) I Love Home and feeling Connected. Your images are Beautiful as always Brigette. My Favorite thing to do is sit in total Silence, look around our home and out the window if I'm inside. I'm filled with Peacefulness and Gratitude. Thank You for recommending this book, I know how much more it will add to my Life. Peace, Love and Happiness to You Brigette!

I wrote a similar blog post on my website- I believe that human connections are everything because the connections are what keeps our souls growing and aching for knowledge. I'm amazed by people's stories and what they can teach me everyday. If I'm ever stuck, sad, or distracted by unimportant matters- I think about the people I've met that have left an impact in my life, and they encourage me to do better even without having to consult them! I'm very happy to see a blog post about this on here. XO.

Great post! Just got a 3 month old English Bulldog a bit over a month. His name is Mello. He loves to perform and show off his quick learning skills for chicken. He learned to ring a bell in just a few days! With no treats at all! May need to make this for him, though. This looks yummy!
