How do I find inspiration for my blog posts

In order to start this post I’d like to hold your hand and take you with me back in time, when I was a student at university. My major was translation and, as young little apprentices, my classmates and I had to translate quite a few scientific articles during our second and third year at university. It was at some point then, that I was reading some random science article that stated our best ideas come to us when our minds are relaxed. Call it in a pub surrounded by friends, during bath time, before falling asleep or even while practising a sport.

 

This was a life changing moment for me. Why? Because ever since that moment I always carry around a notebook everywhere, just in case. You can call me crazy notebook lady all you want, but I never ran out of ideas ever since.

About being a real badass

Hi everyone!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far.

This is my first weekend posting on the blog. After the unexpected popularity of my latest blog post, I am quite excited about posting twice a week, and I look forward to do this more often. Let’s give it a try and see if we can make it work together, you and I.

 

Recently, I found myself reading “You are an awesome badass” by Jen Sincero, for the third time. Before you start judging me by the title of the book, I would like to clarify the below:

 

6 reasons why should you live abroad at least once in your life

Hi everyone,

I hope you are having a nice week so far!

 

This week’s post came with one day of delay as I have been travelling to Spain! And I couldn’t be more excited about being on my way back home, driving at ninety down those country lanes, like Ed Sheeran would say. Or probably not. No, I don’t think he would say this… but in my head, I like to imagine he sings everything he does in real life.

No, ladies -and gents, if any!-, I am not getting distracted from the main topic of today’s post. In fact, this post has been inspired by the song “Castle on the Hill”, created by the abovementioned ginger haired human being.

Sharing my shopping items with you

Hi everyone!

I hope you are having a nice Wednesday so far.

I can’t believe how long it’s been since the last time I wished you were having a nice Wednesday…

This new year has begun and January is finally already over! You are now probably expecting a sentence such as “I can’t believe how time flies” or perhaps “this month has passed in a blink of an eye”. For me, January has been an interesting month as I went through a few personal circumstances where I could not dedicate myself to the blog.

Nevertheless, I have not forgotten about this small world I created named Mind the Shoes. I kept on peparing content for you on the side and I am really excited to start sharing it with you every Wednesday as usual, now that I am feeling recovered and full of energy.

Let’s start with some exciting YouTube news: I have just uploaded my first Haul video. You can now check it out here:

 

 

Feeling lost in Camden Town

Hi everyone!

 

I hope you are having a nice week so far.

 

Today’s post is quite special. To be honest with you, I have been giving it some thought and I kept the photographs for two months until I found the right time and place to share them with you.

As I have been traveling for the past few weeks, I encountered many lost souls –including myself– on my adventures journey. Beautiful people with a feeling of drift alongside, with no directions defined.

I believe, at some point, we all feel lost in life. And all of us, at some point feel desperate for a life guide book or a sign –anything, really– that shows us what is our next step in life.
