Where do you get your inspiration from?

Hey guys,

today I'm just doing a quick post, and I thought it was about time I talked about inspiration. 
Many people get inspiration from other bloggers, friends, photo sites, celebrities, and many more. Photo's that are put on sites like weheartit can come across as very inspiring for others, whether it be fashion wise, photography wise or in any other inspirational way.

Don't get me wrong - I love we heart it, but I feel like my inspiration is much closer to home, I not only look up to this person fashion wise, but I look up to her as a strong women who knows what she wants in life, a women who has gone through so much, that for her to come back and still have a smile on her face, many would find... unbelievable.

My mother ...











My mum used to be a great dancer/model, she was in a lot of shows and believe me she could dance her little feet off!
She still can to this date, but I respect her so much, because she gave up her whole career in order to be there and care for me and my brother, sometimes I don't respect her as much as I should, but I love her no matter what, and I truly do believe that she is such an inspirational person.














I also have my nanny who means the world to me...
Photography..
So, today I was doing my photography work, and I realised that I needed to decorate the front of my book, so here's a sneak peek on what it looks like now :)

Wow that is such a nice tribute to your Mum. And I would also have to say my Mum and Nanny are massive inspirations to me too. I think it's generally natural to get inspiration from your family, but you just don't think about it as much.
