Motivate me Mondays #6 (New York Style).

A whole week in the Big Apple has opened my eyes to many new, quirky and wonderful things I want to share with you. So this week's inspiration is themed - everything New York!

Quintessentially New York, this city is all about the little pooch. Given the small living quarters on the island, it seems almost impossible to be the owner of a dog any bigger than you handbag. So the city has tastefully designed some great ways you can travel around town with your beloved pooch. Steven Alan's Coal Dog Carrier is one stylish way to transport your furry friend when he can't walk the paths (or subways) with you. 

If you are keen to build a collection of memorabilia from your travels, then consider a card collection. These beautiful, handcrafted cards are designed by Greenwich Letterpress who stock a variety of illustrations to choose from, including these gorgeous designs of NYC. You can find catchy quotes, sweet images and classic reminders of your time in the city. Display them on your wall, framed, or casually hung using masking or wasabi tape.

I cannot escape the beauty of Anthropologie. I am completed transfixed by their colour, pattern and texture of their home collection.
