Monday Morning Inspiration ~ Being "Real"
Mother May I

Good morning! How was your weekend? We had a busy day on Saturday and a lazy one on Sunday. :) My son's soccer season just started so we went to his scrimmage and then to his highschool team's basketball playoffs later in the day. It was one of those games where you're on the edge of your seat because the two teams were always just a few points from eachother. In the end, the opposing team one by 1 point!
Anyways, while I wait for a few more submissions to come in for the SPOTLIGHT ON ARTISTS SERIES (see the post below this one), I thought I'd post a few things for you this week. When I first started blogging last March, I discoverd so many decorating blogs with beautiful photos of homes, clothes, jewelry, etc. I find so much inspiration through their gorgeous photos, inspirational interviews, and style guidance, but I've also been excited to discover that there seems to be a "movement" towards being genuine and transparent on your blog. Sometimes when you're sitting there with your morning cup of coffee/tea, you can't picture that there's a real person behind the blog you're reading. But lately, it's been so refreshing and inspiring to me to see bloggers talking about things that are important to them...their likes, dislikes, struggles, and triumphs. I've left a few links for you to follow underneath the images above. These bloggers have inspired me to be more transparent in what I share here on Simply Hue. What do you think of "being real" on your blog? Do you like to read blogs that feel more personal (like you're visiting a friend) or do you prefer blogs that stick to style and decorating? I'd love to hear you thoughts. :)
Speaking of "being real", I need to go eat some breakfast and get dressed! I'm sitting here in my p.j.'s with no makeup and no food in my stomache. Sigh....I definitely need to come up with a more organized morning routine! lol.
Have a great new week and keep on sending in your submissions for the SPOTLIGHTS (I need a few more designers and artists)!
