Things that Make Me Smile

Happy Friday!

I have made it almost one week with my egyptian in NYC! I am really proud of how I have handled it. Sure, there have been a few moments where I did not feel my best, but over all - I think I am doing alright!

I am surrounding myself around things/people/places that make me happy. This idea is what inspired this post.

These are items/ideas that bring a smile to my face.

Enjoy a little "happy" inspiration!
One thing in particular that has been a saving grace is my music. I spend a majority of my alone time just listening to my favorite songs. You can see a list of my current "songs" on the left hand side of my blog under "Stirs my Soul." Just click on the individual songs and you will hear what I listen to!

A spa day is essential. On average I am booking one spa day per month. On the 15th I will go for three things at Aveda - a Body Polish, a 60 minute facial, and am "aqua massage" in the Hydrotherapy Tub. Sure it is a little expensive - but worth it to find my Zen moments.

Something as simple as grabbing my string of pearls can put a smile on my face. If I need to feel young and pretty - this is what I grab. My little beads of femininity!

I love lipstick. I recently bought a new red lipstick that I am in love with. When I wear a pretty lipstick, it forces me to smile!! Plus, the red gives you a little sexy edge!

You really want to sass things up and make me stand a little taller? Let me pull out a pretty pair of black heels.

I love snapping pictures. No - I am not the best at it, but I enjoy it!

In the middle of my bedroom is the bed - and surrounding the floor on either side or stacks of books. I am an avid reader. (Hence the reason I need the Kindle!)
Anything with peacock feathers always makes me smile! I love the colors. There is usually at least one peacock item in each room I reside. (From home to work!)

Do I even need to explain? Plus, I love getting espresso from coffee houses that do coffee art!

Finally - the big plans I have for travel! I am super excited and ready to roll!!

What about you? What makes you smile when you are trying to keep your chin up?

Things that make me smile:

1) A can of Coca-cola. My grandmother would sip on half a can of coca-cola almost every day. Almost like in an old Hollywood movie, with the old lady sipping brandy -- she would nurse her half a can of coca-cola all afternoon! The taste reminds me of afternoons with her.

2) Leg warmers. I wasn't the best at ballet, but I didn't pursue it past the age of 7. Leg warmers remind me of who I was, and who I still can be.

3) Berries. Berries just have a lil magic to them, don't they?

I could go on, and on and on...
