My Monday mood board ~ inspiring quotes & unexpected travel inspiration 

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I’m here to share a few of our favourites from this week’s #mymondaymoodboard gallery…

quotes to inspire
These above {starting top left & going clockwise} come from: @zoepower @rachel.seymour @red_sh0es & @playfulday

Prompting you to share favourite quotes, you all came up trumps, no more so than the very seasonal image from Janne below…

The earth has music for those who listen.  George Santayana

A sweet reminder for us all this week, as so many of us went back to work/office & children back at school…and suddenly I’m aware of being back ‘indoors’ again. 

Even yesterday morning, I found myself refusing Lily time in the garden {before breakfast} because ‘it’s too cold!’ …when surely that’s what socks, wellies & coats were made for?? She’s got into such a sweet routine of running outside with Cocoa, our dog, first thing in the morning throughout summer; quite rightly she was more than a little confused at being confined indoors.

So thank you Janne, you’ve inspired me to notice my misconceptions about temperature, and admire a daughter who just wants to listen to the earth, no matter the weather.

Here’s to wrapping up in scarves, swapping straw hats for bobbles & getting outside in the fresh air….

Talking of which, I just wanted to share one more pic from the gallery; it’s often images tagged to the feed, which have no relation to the prompt, that inspire us greatly, like this one: 

live like a local in lisbon
like.a.local.in.lisbon

Gorgeous kitchenalia aside, it comes from the lovely Rosa, whose feed is a gallery of photos to inspire travel in Lisbon. 

Experience Lisbon like a local & get off the beaten track. Get to know new hotspots, designers & amazing food.

This is just what I adore about Instagram. It’s a fantastic visual discovery tool, and also an inspiring place to discover places, people and, importantly for me, creativity.

Feel free to join us again next week on Instagram @mymondaymoodboard where the prompt will be:  V I N T A G E

As with Rosa above, you may tag any inspiring/creative/encouraging images…the prompt is just there to be helpful if needed.

Have a wonderful rest of week, 

Love Jess x

  1. Thanks so much Jess, for including one of mine in your lovely selections. I love the beetroot image, and the quote that goes with it. Been spending lots of time in the garden at the moment – so good to have a break from screens. And it’s been so warm for the last few days – coats and scarves or t-shirts?! I’ll take whatever sun I can get 🙂
