"It's FRIDAY I'm in LOVE/Inspire Me Series #7

Follow the Bliss...

I don't know how I found her. I am just glad that I have. Stephmodo is really inspiring to me.
I love her blog and the various topics she blogs about.
I love her style and her ideas.
I love blogs who elevate the home to this domestic gorgeous art form.
I am not a domestic goddess.
BUT- I love reading and looking at those who are- love it.
Plus she is as sweet as sugar.
Here are some things she had to say about inspiration.

1. Epicurious. It's the ultimate in food websites. Because everything is rated, you know exactly what you are getting into beforehand. A huge pet peeve of mine is putting forth effort into making something that looks delicious, but then it isn't. I've found that if you only make recipes with an 88% approval rating or higher, you're guaranteed to love what you make. If you want to make something with a particular ingredient, type it in and then sort the results by rating. Just writing about it is making me hungry...

2. Mrs. Meyers anything in Lavender. I love the fresh's totally unlike other artificial-smelling cleaners. To date my favorites are the hand soap and counter top spray. For whatever reason, that splash of lavender adds a little somethin' somethin' to my day.

3. France. Luscious food, amazing style, vast collections of art, beautiful scenery, a lot of history....what's not to love? It's a wonderful place to visit and to feel inspired. I can't get enough and find that despite my inclinations to travel all over the world, I always come back to wanting to visit France.
