Life Inspirations

Hello, my babies!

20 days ago, I graduated high school. I have officially been launched into the real world, and I couldn't be happier. Or more overwhelmed.

Although I have a few years of college ahead of me and I'm still living with my parents, it's time to start thinking about life after education. What do I want to do? Where do I want to live? What do I want my living space to look like? What do I want my wardrobe to look like? What kind of car do I want to drive?

I'm not a very decisive person, so I love to look elsewhere for inspiration. Today's post is all about the people, places, and things that I aspire to do/have/be like in my lifetime. Enjoy!

Home Inspiration
Estee Lalonde

Estee is a Canadian, London-based YouTuber. Although our styles don't completely align, Estee is one of my home inspirations because she does a great job of incorporating color into very neutral spaces. We share a love of the accented neutral color scheme, and she has the green thumb that I wish I had! Above I've included a video she made of her favorite bits of her home, and I can't help but agree with her!

Fashion Inspiration
Emily Canham

Emily Canham is a 20-year-old YouTuber who specializes in beauty and fashion. Emily's wardrobe is the perfect mixture of elegant and casual, and even her most laid-back outfits look worthy of a day out!

My go-to outfit is a pair of leggings and a men's t-shirt, out of sheer simplicity. I have a few 'feminine' pieces, but the majority of my clothing is fairly androgynous. Emily does a great job of making feminine clothing appeal to me by including edgy/unisex touches. She also does a wonderful job of including inexpensive pieces in her wardrobe.

Blog Inspiration
Poppy Deyes


Poppy Deyes is a food/travel/lifestyle blogger from Brighton, England. Every picture on Poppy's blog and Instagram is perfectly lit and edited, and they make you feel happy just by looking at them. Every aspect of her photography and blog layout seems to be thought out and precisely placed, which is a skill I have yet to master.

Ultimate Inspiration(s):
Zoe Sugg and Alfie Deyes


Zoe and Alfie (a.k.a. Zalfie) are YouTubers based in Brighton, England, and I've been subscribed to their channels for about 5 years now. In those 5 years, their channels have grown massively, which has allowed them to do things that the average twenty-something could only dream of.

Zoe and Alfie are my career, home, fashion, and relationship inspirations for the following reasons:

Both Alfie and Zoe have made making YouTube videos their full-time job, which is something I've wished for myself since 8th grade. They are both authors of several successful books, which is a title I hope to have for myself one day. They recently moved into an absolute mansion of a home in the town that I've been dreaming of moving to for years. They also have the best relationship with each other's families, which is something I hope to maintain with my boyfriend's family. Not only are they a beautiful couple, but they're also beautiful people inside and out. They give as much as they get, and they are regular donators to charity.

Zoe and Alfie's unbelievable success is every aspect of their lives - especially at such a young age - is why they are my ultimate role models.

Those are all of the life inspirations I have at the moment! Although I said I was an indecisive person at the beginning of this post, I don't want you to think that I'm trying to be anyone else. I like to think of these inspirations as people that spark an interest within me and expose me to things I never knew I liked.

I hope you enjoy today's post, and I'll see you soon for another one!
