Today I wanted to showcase another blogger who inspires me - Pia Jane Bijkerk. "Enhance the everyday" is her motto. And I couldn't agree more. Pia does this through her work as a stylist, writer and photographer, a path she turned to after running a homewares store as well as a teahouse in Sydney's Northern Beaches. Now she divides her time between Paris, Amsterdam and Sydney.

Pia's beautiful Parisian apartment (pictured, top) was featured as a before and after story here.

Which five words best describe you? Passionate, candid, rambling, quiet, flawed.

What’s your proudest achievement? Any time that I am able to express myself clearly and succinctly I am a bit proud. It doesn't happen often.

Who inspires you? Right now I am totally inspired by my fellow bloggers and blog readers. I love blogging. In my humble opinion it's the best technological creation to date.

What are you passionate about? Life: mine and everyone else's.

What’s the best lesson you've learnt? To just get on with it.

Which person, living or dead, would you most like to meet? Songwriter and musician Ani DiFranco who is able to not only express herself clearly and succinctly on a regular basis, but also has the ability of "getting on with it".

What’s next? My first book will be published next year, and I have a few fun projects in the making that include more writing, more photography, more travelling, more styling, more drawings, and more music.

What are you reading? Just finished reading Mary Shaffer's The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and have just started reading Sean Condon's My 'Dam Life. The two books couldn't be further worlds apart, but both inspire and intrigue me equally.
