What inspires you? I have my standard list that includes my Mom, my family, my friends, etc. But when I think about this blog, what is it that really made me want to do this? The potential I would become world famous for my unique posts? Nope, not a chance. I started this because I want to be like the people who make me want more. I want to be the one doing in the inspirating! (is that a word?)
 I was spending my usual mental break time to peruse Cupcakes and Cashmere and I thought to myself: “wow, this girl is so inspirational!”. No, not in the way that makes me want to change the world, but in the way that makes me want to be a better blogger. Emily Schuman created Cupcakes & Cashmere for the same reasons I created Denim & Daydreams. She is actually where I got the idea for this little old blog (hence the name…). 

I would recommend buying this book here.

Whenever I have a little free time or I am looking for something to capture my attention, I head on over to the archives of Cupcakes & Cashmere and pick a random time frame. I could spend hours. I have read her book from cover to cover and I have markers with bookmarked pages throughout the entire thing. So I started to think today, is this creepy? Am I obsessed? Why do I like her so much? 
The reason is: She is real. Everything she posts and talks about is attainable. Yes, she has impeccable style, cooking skills and ideas, but she was a regular girl looking for a way to share and inspire. Well, she absolutely has inspired me. She once was just a girl behind a computer looking for an exciting new outlet.
So now that I have gushed, do you have anyone or anything that inspires you?

This weekend was certainly one for the record books. Between my DIY projects and the Super Bowl, there is a lot on my mind. Sometimes, I find list making easier, so that is what I will have to do today.
-I made these shelves that were inspired by Pintrest (instructions here). My bathroom is storage handicapped, and any style in there? Please. The tile was clearly on clearance and the colors are pretty terrible. I decided to take this into my own hands. 

I am very proud of these little crates. All it took was some spray paint, and I now have something I am proud of in that horrid space.
Maybe I will tackle this project next?

-Beyonce is my idol. She really killed it. If you are not a fan of her, I question your character.

-I am so happy the Super Bowl is over. I was hoping for a tie.
-I made homemade chili this weekend in my crock pot and it was a success. Delish!

-My friend at work made these cupcakes for our bosses birthday. They are adorable and fantastic.

-I am tired. I have to do laundry tonight. Blah.
-I will wear this outfit this summer. I will wear it so much, that it will be like uniform.

-I ate brownies for dinner last night.
I apologize for the sarcasm  dry-ness and lameness today. It was just one of those weekends. Here’s to a better week!
