a year of love notes 2015


It may or may not have escaped your notice but I am obsessed, crazy about and totally gaga for quotes. They can be inspirational, motivational, funny, lovely or spiritual. It doesn't matter, I love them all. Pinterest is my dealer and gets me whatever quote I want or need whenever I want or need it and I couldn't be happier with their service. However if they donned a giant gold necklace and started speaking like my man Omar from the Wire then maybe I would let them get to second base yo!

This compulsion to be inspired on a daily, sometimes hourly basis is as much to do with my personality type (I'm an INFJ, we are inspiration whores), as it is to do with my tendency to dwell on repetitive negative thoughts. Such a bummer to be controlled by one's monkey brain so my solution is to flood my neural receptors with good thoughts, smooth vibes and inspirational quotes instead. It works for me.

At the start of 2014 I decided to start my own inspirational quotes project, well 'abundance' was my word for the year and I clearly didn't have enough to do!, and magically a year of love notes was born.

Every day in 2015 a new love note will go live here, instagram and twitter. I am beyond excited, come along and join me for the ride.

I have worked so hard (and enjoyed it so much) to get this project off the ground. Trawling books, poetry, the internet and pinterest for the best quotes, learning how to use photoshop so I could design them myself, choosing a design palette, font and style sheet. Exhausting in that really good, I just climbed Mount Everest, way.

I hope you enjoy a year of love notes, I hope they inspire you, make you feel motivated, comforted, grateful and fist-pumpingly alive at the start of this most brilliant of years.

Peace out!
