Motivating Monday #6

August 06, 2012
What's better to start a week than some motivating things? A fancy dress, some nice stationery or some pretty pictures. Motivating Monday is a weekly column filled with things I'm loving at the moment.

Motivating shoes:
These little babies! I'm so in love with these shoes. I bought them in black over the weekend while I was swooning over this colour as well. But I couldn't really spend my money on them since I wouldn't wear them so often. (I want fall now. Immediately, so I can wear my pretty shoes.)

Motivating sports:
I'm sorry for those who hate the Olympics but I can't get enough. I'm particulary proud of the brothers Borlee at the moment and I'm anxiously waiting for the finals this evening. So the motivating sport for this week is running - 400m.


Motivating doll:
It's been a long time now, since I discovered Blythe. I know it's kind of a trend but I can't do anything about it, I'm completely sold. I can't give such an amount to a doll though so for now, I'll just keep pretending I'm going to buy one. These are a few of my favorites.


Motivating DIY:
Jess from Time for Tea recently did a 'make it week' where she posted a LOT of lovely tutorials. I want to do a lot of them (even though I'm not a very crafty person at all) but this is one of my favorites since I'm loving all things galaxy at the moment. Galaxy print shoes DIY with sharpies and rubbing alcohol.

Motivating clip:
This is nothing too special or funny or anything at all, it's something most of us (me as well) wouldn't give a thing about and yet it's so beautiful in its simplicity.
(Unfortunately, the video doesn't want to appear so you can view it here.)
