August Inspiration


My first of many posts about what’s inspiring me! This is honestly the thing I am most excited to share with everyone because if you know me, I am a list person. They make me feel a million times more put together every time I write one, even if it just has two items.

Last year when I started my Sophomore year of school, in an effort to create more everyday, I bought a bulletin board and started to make my version of a vision board. I hope for these blurbs every month to do the same thing for me, but rather than printing, cutting, and pasting, this will all be online and at hand wherever I go.


  • This website is entirely made up of color palettes and is very relaxing to go through
  • Always always inspired by Van Gogh. ‘Poppy Flowers’ is my current favorite. This painting is actually currently missing - and it’s not the first time it’s been stolen.

  • This incredible instagram belonging to a small flower farm. Swoon.
  • Thinking of ideas on how to make a dorm room feel this cozy…

  • The wild garlic that is somehow still growing outside of my window despite the severe lack of upkeep in the garden
  • Alaska. Currently trying to figure out a way to live there for a couple months at some point. Any ideas?!
  • The simplicity of this journal entry… Try as I may, I can never get mine to feel this clean.


If you’d like to take a peek at the music I listen to, I regularly update a monthly playlist full of good tunes. Heads up that there is explicit language.

If that’s not for you, here are a couple highlights - both new and old.

  • Anthony Green - Miracle Sun
  • Bad Books - It Never Stops
  • Bruce Springsteen - Dancing in the Dark
  • Chance the Rapper ft. Saba - Angels
  • Childish Gambino - Terrified
    • This entire album will never cease to amaze me. He’s pure talent.
  • David Bowie - Life on Mars?
  • Harry Styles - Carolina
    • “towns, better swim before you drown”
  • The Homeless Gospel Choir - Normal
  • Julien Baker - Good News
    • “In the thin air, my ribs creak like wooden dining chairs when you see me”
    • I’m forever going to be in love with this entire album. I’m getting the absolute privilege to see her in NYC and it can’t come fast enough.
  • Listener - Falling in Love With Glaciers
  • Macseal - Harry
  • Paramore - Idle Worship
  • Pixies - Debaser
  • Sorority Noise - Mononokay
