Life moves so quickly. Lately I’ve been trying to take time to myself and do things that make me happy since I’ve felt in a bit of a funk. Something as simple as getting into a new show or buying a new shirt can really bring joy to my day and I marvel at how the smallest things can really make a difference in changing my perspective.
New Girl – This show has been around for a while but I never got fully into it in the beginning. I think I had watched a few episodes of this show when it had first come out. I remembered it being really cute and Zooey of course being great in it but at that point I was too busy to keep up with another show. I’ve recently rediscovered it and am absolutely obsessed. The quirkiness and fun that this show brings to the table is just so infectious. The episodes are only about 21 minutes long on Netflix and it is great to just quickly watch a few episodes in a couple hours. It’s quickly becoming one of my favorite shows.
New Shirt – This shirt is everything. It combines my obsession with flowers and black with my favorite phrase when it comes to dealing with people and their b.s. I wish I could wear this shirt everyday. I really debated purchasing two identical versions of this shirt but my logical reasoning won out.
Katy Perry – Last Tuesday I got to see Katy Perry live in concert. It really was incredible. Katy Perry can put on a damn good show. There was so much variety, color and energy in her show along with her entertaining performances. It was unlike any other concert I’ve attended and it was just a really fun way to break up the week and have something to look forward to.
Tiny Necklaces – I talked about my love for tiny necklaces in this Etsy post, and I finally caved and bought a couple. I am totally in love with these tiny gold pieces. The arrow and triangle are so small and cute, they really could be worn every day and just looking at them brings a smile to my face because they are so darn cute.
Sometimes we need to just slow things down and take some time for ourselves: I’d love to know how you find little pieces of happiness in every day.
These past few weeks have been very busy. I’ve been trying to balance everything but it can sometimes be a struggle. There have been a few little things that have been making me happy and keeping me going. I marvel at how the little things in life can change our perspectives and give us special elements to look forward to during crazy times. Here are a few of these happy things:
New gym bag – This bag is both cute and functional: the two necessities for any bag. It’s big enough to hold all of my essentials for working out. I love a bag with lots of pockets, especially for the gym. And this color is to die for. I will definitely be using this one a bunch. (olivia+joy). Which goes along with something else that has been making me happy: getting back into exercising. I’ve kind of fallen off the wagon of my exercise regime for the past couple months. It’s been making me feel sluggish and so much less strong. Exercising gives me so much more energy and makes me happier so I’ve been slowly getting back into it.
Intuos Wacom tablet – I’ve wanted a drawing tablet for so long and finally bought this one. I’m so excited to see what I can create using this tablet. You can look forward to lots of creations coming up while I’m experimenting with what I can do with this tablet.
Birchbox package – Getting anything in the mail is awesome. Getting a Birchbox shipment in the mail is exciting because you know you are in store for some great beauty products. This shipment was an order for skincare products that will hopefully make my skin feel/look better, which always makes me happy.
Seeing concerts – My first concert wasn’t until college. Although I’ve always loved music, somehow I’d never thought to actually go to a concert. Throughout college I never had enough time to see all the concerts I wanted to but now that I’m in the ‘real world’ and have free weekends, I’ve been grabbing every opportunity to see live music. My music tastes tend to be pretty diverse: I have tickets to see Katy Perry this month, I recently went to Warped Tour, a Fall Out Boy/Paramore concert and won free tickets to see Ed Sheeran. Winning those tickets was crazy and awesome and made me soo happy. I love Ed Sheeran’s new album and was so happy to see him live. I feel like I’m making up all the time now seeing as many concerts as I can since I’ve missed so many in the past. It feels good to splurge a little on these types of things and be able to soak up these experiences, especially during a busy time.
