At times after writing a blog for several years it is hard to think of new topics to keep it fresh and entertaining. I often find inspiration in creative journals. If you have something pretty or interesting to jot down your thoughts in then they will come out....or at least I tell myself that as I increase my journal collection.
One of my favorite places to go for all things paper, including journals is Paper Source...it also helps that our local location is smack in between my other obsessions Anthropologie and Sprinkles!
A journal for those days when you want to vent, but need to shut it to keep from getting fired, starting a family feud or in some form or fashion pissing someone off.
One for writing down those travel plans, or keeping track of your favorite details while on a trip. I just booked a birthday trip to Hollywood so perhaps I will pick this one up to help stay organized.
And who wouldn't be inspired with this little cutie looking out over the horizon!
Speaking of writing...
Glamour sent me a new book to review called Always Hit on the Wingman...and 9 Other Secret Rules for Getting the Love Life You Want. For more than fifty years Glamour magazine has had a male columnist on staff to give dating advice to women. While this male has changed over this years he is always referred to as Jake. Well one of the Jake's went off and found love and is now back to tell women how to catch others like himself. Single and looking for your man? Perhaps some of these tips will come in handy. From ways to make him think commitment was his idea to how flirting with his friend at first can reel in the guy you really want this book takes the Glamour column to a new level. Check it out here.
