Two Inspirational Ladies | Sharing The Love.

It has been an embarrassingly long time since I last wrote anything like this. It's embarrassing because I began to overlook the importance of sharing the love, something I never ever want to overlook again. I got caught up somewhere along the way. Caught up in myself, and I'm not sure how that happened. But I'm thankful that I've found my way back.

These two ladies feel like my soul sisters. I've never met either of them in 'real life', but they have both inspired me more than they could ever know. I'm so beyond thankful that our paths ended up crossing in this vast space that is internet land. I think they're utterly wonderful & it would mean the world to me if you nipped over and said hello to them!

Ferren is the kind of person I hope to be like someday. I don't know her personally, but to me she comes across as a strong woman who radiates confidence and self belief. You know when you meet someone and you instantly start thinking about how interesting they are, admiring their talents? At this point I'm fairly convinced there's not very much she can't do; her photography is beautiful, her style is pretty immaculate and she's a talented musician too alongside Tom in Pandr Eyez - 'Cinematic' has been stuck in my head (in the best possible way!!) for at least two weeks now!

Even more than just having a beautifully written blog to read whenever a post pops up on my bloglovin' feed, Ferren has inspired me to believe in myself a little more and push for things that will make me happy, not just in the short term but in the long run too. And for that I will always be more than grateful.

Laila is nothing short of absolutely wonderful. The passion she has for her creative projects is contagious, whenever I read about her latest adventures or the projects she's working on I immediately want to find more time to dedicate to the things that I'd like to achieve very soon. Tape Parade is a true reflection of her, a diary that allows her to share her thoughts, her travels and her work - it has become a constant source of inspiration for me and it makes me smile to see Laila doing so well.

Anything really is possible if you believe enough. There's always time to be found for the things that make you the happiest in life and it's all thanks to Laila that I now believe in that one million percent, wholeheartedly. Again, for that I will be more than grateful. Always.

Love always,

P.S. I would love you to leave a link to your favourite blog in the comments!


  1. Going to hop over and check out Artcream (what a cool name!). I already follow Tape Parade and her blog is really delightful! xxx

  2. How nice to write a blogpost like this! I love it. I don't know these blogs yet, so I am going to take a look at them right now!

  3. You might find in embarrassing but this post is so sweet. I'll definitely check the blogs out. As for my favorites I'll have to say you're one of the nicest people on here, but since you can't check out your own blog (you write them and all) I'd have to say http://www.thumbelinalillie.com. Megan is a lovely girl and I've followed her from the start. Not only is her posts beautifully written but she always knows her stuff and definitely deserves all the success she is getting.
