Surround yourself with inspiration.

Surround yourself with inspiration.

I'm not sure about you guys, but I'm constantly on the look out for inspiration. It's like there's always a little part of my brain that won't ever switch off. And I think this is the case for most people that do anything 'creative' or that requires a constant stream of ideas. Whether that's a hobby like blogging, or working within a creative industry, you'll start to find that your inspiration comes from the most unexpected of places.

For me, I take my ideas from everything, everyone, and everywhere. Books, TV, people, places, the list is pretty endless. Although, if I'm honest, my idea's normally pop into my head at approximately 2am, when I can't sleep and I'm overthinking life... as per.

But, if there's one other thing that always helps to keep me inspired, it's making sure I find those inspiring places to create. Now, don't get me wrong, I love nothing more than writing and editing all cosy in bed with a cup of tea to hand. I could do this all day. But sometimes you need a change of scenery, don't you?

I don't think I've ever told you guys this, but I have a secret thing for buildings, architecture and interiors. And it's one of the things I love about living in Liverpool, there's just so much history hidden within some absolutely beautiful buildings here. And if I was rich enough, I would most definitely get myself into property and channel my creativity through interior design. 

I'm a firm believer that the space around you can truly affect your mood and productivity. Which is why I always find that I work best in an environment that suits me. Think more coffee houses and pretty tea shops, and less libraries and offices. That's most definitely where I create the best, but it's possibly the complete other way round for some people.

So, if I'm ever stuck in a little blogging rut, I'll take myself off to somewhere like this; bright, colourful & spacious, in the hope that the inspiring surroundings might just get some new ideas flowing.

Do you find that your surroundings affect your creativity?

  1. In terms of studying, I could not work in the library! Everyone was too stressed and I focused more on what everyone else was doing around me, feeling so pressured into doing work that I couldn't do any. Whereas at home or a coffee shop, I could slip into my own little world and be quite productive.

    1. Yes! I think this is why I love coffee shops, I can just be in my own little bubble but still have the background noise that I need sometimes to be productive! xx

  2. I agree, I definitely like changing it up sometimes, I can't always work at my desk, even though I love it. This year I think I would love to try finding coffee shops to blog and write at, it's something I dream about but have actually never done! Great post! :)

    1. You should definitely try it, I absolutely love doing it now :) xx

  3. You are the best for motivational posts.. love it girl!

    And did you change your blogdesign? I LOVE it! But never seen it on pipdig.. is it a custom design?

    1. Haha thank you, Lisa. I'm glad you like them!

      And I did indeed! It should be a pipdig one - it's one of their new ones I think :) xx

  4. I have never tried working in a coffee shop or tea room before. I've always just stayed within my four walls. It may explain why I lack motivation and ideas sometimes. I'll try to get out more with my laptop this year and see how it goes! Great post Sophie x

    1. You should most definitely try it, Dionne! I find it's one of the best ways to work now... and of course you can have all the coffee you need haha! xx

  5. I completely agree! I love writing in the cosy comfort of my room, but sometimes a new environment just gives my mind the little spark it needs to creative something new.

  6. I'm always constantly looking around me! there is nothing like a new environment to spark ideas!

  7. I'd love to visit Liverpool for it's beautiful architecture - especially after seeing your lovely pictures! I also find inspiration in so many places and have a thing for buildings! xx

    1. Jessie, please come and visit Liverpool... then I can finally meet you haha! xx

  8. Yes! I always find that where I am can spark some kind of creativity in me. I love being in my bedroom if I'm wanting to just write and write and write - I find it such a calming place to be. I always get inspired when walking through cities too. I think people-watching and looking at the buildings just makes me feel all inspired and excited! Xx

    1. I love writing in my bedroom too, it's super calming for me as well - particularly in the evening when I can put all my candles on and stuff! People watching is like my favourite past-time haha xx

  9. Beautiful pictures. They set a lovely scene for being inspired to write! Pretty tea shops sounds blissful, that, and the countryside is special for me. Xxx a lovely post xx

    Best wishes . . .

    Keep Calm and start writing -
