Loving, Lately: the Travel Edition

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything from this series and I thought it was high time to break the drought. Now, I don’t typically measure my happiness in objects, but there have been a few that have made their way into my life as of late that have been giving me an inordinate amount of joy. Sometimes it’s just about the little things, am I right?

Unpictured: it’s Friday!! Happy weekend my dears. xx

Made me smile:


I used to entitle these posts “happiness is” but it never quite felt right claiming that the secret to happiness is a cute set of salt and pepper shakers or brand new boots. Every time I would hit publish something would churn in my stomach for I felt I was sending the wrong message. When I originally started this sometimes series, I did it with the intention of placing the focus on the little bits, those small moments that make your day just that much sweeter. I’m a firm believer in finding the light, the silver linings and appreciating the little things and that’s exactly what I’m trying to convey. From here on out, I will be referring to this series as “made me smile” for it feels more fitting. Yes, finding that dress you’ve lusted over on sale is something to smile about, as is making your way home without ever having to stop at a red light or purchasing a bag filled primarily with brown m&m’s (they taste the best, I swear it!) Little tidbits of my days that, in the grand scheme of things, are superfluous, potentially superficial and not necessarily the secret to happiness, but do deserve some recognition in their own right. What are a few notable things that made you smile lately? I’d love to know!

Happy long weekend sunshines (oh look, another reason to smile)!

happiness is…

{golden teacups}

With this week being unusually busier than most, I have found myself making conscious efforts to sit back, breathe and take a moment or two to myself before tackling the next task. Making sure that I don’t work through my entire lunch and still hanging out with friends after work has made huge improvements on my level of productivity when I really get down to it. I’ve mentioned before that it’s important to focus on the positives and try to avoid being overwhelmed wherever possible (a mantra that usually helps me: “will this REALLY matter in a week?” If not, let it go.) Focusing on the little things in life is equally as important and really do make a difference in your levels of gratitude.  These are a few little things that have made me happy and have added to my otherwise stressful week.{embellished tops}{fresh scones & crème fraîche}
{mimosas}{baskets of chocolate}

Those of you who’ve been around for a while may remember my “100 things”series; a series in which I spent 10 weeks listing 100 simple things that made my days just a little bit brighter. I had so much fun putting it together back then and I knew that I wanted to keep it up in one way or another.  Here are a few simple little things that are currently making me happy. What are some of yours?
