Today it's my blogger mashup turn. I'm really excited I'll be honest. You probably know the story, Victoria from SfgirlbyBay thought it would be interesting to share what inspires us each of it, it would also be a great opportunity to get to meet other bloggers, and well... she put it forward and got 300 replies, 300 blogger who wanted to participate, and that's the blogger mashup! So Victoria, smart as she is, decided to divide the 300 bloggers into 10 groups, I'm in group #1 and the lead was amazing Ez from Creature Comforts , I'm so honoured to be in her group because i admire her so much. I got the "torch" from A Beautiful Party who blogged about her inspirations on Friday.
And the question is... What inspires me... some are here...
I'm a visual person, everything gets to me from the eye, and everything beautiful inspires me. I am a sucker for colorful things, whatever these are. They can be m&m's, cupcakes, pink frosting, jewelry, cooking utensils, anything really. I'm a sucker for good marketing and good packaging.
Fashion for sure, is a great source of inspiration and people who do fashion right, street fashion, and people who catch these trend setters, like the Sartorialist. Because street fashion is the best, even if this one is the impressive one. When I was younger, one of my daily stops was Style and their street fashion feature. I loved it. I guess The Sartorialist is a grown up version.
Homes. I love individuality, prettiness, gorgeous homes like this apartment, owner Lizzie Bailey works in an antique gallery and has a passion for interior design, can you tell?

Magazines: I have so many I don't know how to store them anymore, they are everywhere, here and back at home in Barcelona (I have a huge collection of Vogue Spain, and my mum knows better than throwing them). From fashion, to decoration, to politics and anything in between. Just give me some "beautiful" magazines, because yes they still need to be beautiful (even if it's the Times).
Weddings: So much, too much, obsessively. The whole lot: planning, festivity, organization, happiness, colors, family, dresses, flowers, friends, photography...

Blogs: Well what can I say that you don't know (and probably feel) yourselves. The Internet and all the amazing blogs and bloggers gives me tons and tons of inspiration. Thank you to all.
My Family: My Mom especially and grandma. My mom who is there no matter what, cheering me up and supporting me, my mum=and best friend.
My sweet sweet BF: Who is there supporting me in everything silently, smiling and cheering me up when necessary, making my day brighter and giving me incredible strength -the one who I want to spent my life with and grow old together. The one who cooks yummy dishes to make me happy -like the pasta he made yesterday for Vday. (Incredibly he allowed me to post a one and only picture for this post) :)
Tomorrow you can read what inspires A la Mode, can't wait. You can also read what inspires 9 other amazing bloggers today, I will: Mocking Bird, Bread of Many, Paper & Thread, Darcy Rogers, Seek and Find Design, Green Chair Studio, Swoonette, La Dolce Vita, The Yellow House in the U.
I would also want to thank Victoria for putting all this together, a great experience!
