Inspiration comes in many forms, almost like a living breathing art form. There are so many ways to be inspired on a day-to-day basis. We constantly change, grow up, change our minds about what is in or out, and become inspired all over again.

I like to always stay on top of the newest fashion, hair, and beauty, but never mold my thoughts to be exactly what you typically would expect. I like to be different, and to stand out, to look absolutely striking. I love being asked “Who does your hair?” “Where did you get that?” “OMG I love this…” I love bright colors, bold cuts, and anything glittery or sparkly to accent my ideas.

I have to give a lot of credit towards Pinterest, and Wanelo for much of my beauty inspirations, and if you have no idea what I’m talking about, it’s time you do! I also get a lot of my inspiration through people watching (everyone does it). I love style, I love everything about a woman who can completely put herself together, even if it is just to go to the grocery store. I’m inspired by the fact that we all live such busy lives, yet we still do our hair and makeup everyday.

There is no one single person in particular who inspires me, I don’t wake up every morning thinking how I can look so similar to someone else which is why I think colors, shapes, and even music inspires me the most. At the moment I’m rocking black with hot pink and blonde streaks with a bright yellow feather in the front of my bangs, and I thought of those ideas by looking at a nail tutorial on Youtube called Raspberry Lemonade. I loved the color mixture.

So an individual or someone else’s fashion trend doesn’t always define inspiration – it is developed by the world around you. The shapes, the texture and the colors of the world provide inspiration – you just have to look at it and visualize it in your world.
