I realized I was a 'follower' when I found myself scouring local grocery stores for the perfect sized San Pellegrino bottles to add to my kitchen hutch. I kept asking myself 'Why do people decorate with these... I don't get it?'... I even did a google search of this trend that only resulted in more perfectly staged photos with that sparkling water making it's appearance (and furthering my desire to have them in my kitchen).
Then, I changed my mindset and I realized I was not a follower but I was inspired. Sure, there have been times I have come up with certain DIY projects all on my own but most of the time I find my inspiration from other home bloggers. I admit I feel a certain pressure to be innovative and make things my own but isn't that what everyone does? This is a community of inspiration and ideas! That is the point!
So, that's it. A quick post to remind you that it's okay to let yourself be inspired by those around you, whatever your niche.
Oh, and I found my San Pellegrino (why is this a thing again? But I love it!)!
