Randomly, I feel this sort of “high” or feel a euphoria for life and the things I love. I know I’m not the only one. Why this happens is totally a myth to me but it’s at these points that I am able to truly identify things I am helplessly in love with. Stay with me here as I share the 5 things I simply can’t do without at this moment.
1. Simple & Inexpensive Gifts
Social media can leave a strong lasting impression on our minds. Sometimes the effects can be draining when we think everyone else has so much more than we possess. The reality is that what we see is not always what people get. It’s very important to appreciate the priceless and simple things in life. Things like, laying under the sky at night to star gaze or growing herbs for a fresh taste in a home cooked meal. Yea, I know everyone doesn’t have access to a garden or maybe not even a yard but the point is to appreciate what costs little to nothing. My little darlings took part of their allowances and each bought me a rose. The pricelessness of the thought! When the roses died, the sentiment remained so I cut the stems down and placed them in a jar. Sometimes it’s just the simple things…
2. Early Mornings/Weekends
Ahhh!! The rejuvenating feeling of an early morning or a “lazy” weekend is unparalleled. I do some of my best blogging in the morning and during the weekend. I find the best weekends are ones where I kind of just fall in to plans or where I’m not focused on a rigid schedule. I like to visit spring festivals as well as farmer’s markets sniffing fresh cut flowers and walking through the morning air. Then there’s laying in my Florida room to get back to writing my book. What do you do on your weekends?
3. Eclectic Eateries
Hubby and I rarely get time to just be. I mean that in the sense of spending time together without the children. Date night is usually take out in our Florida room at night after the kids are out for the night. Being creative, we’ve been taking time hubby has free before the kiddies get out of school to have dates. These dates are so much fun and mean so much that I usually forget to take pictures. We’ve been experiencing some of the edgy, eclectic and fun spots in and around town. Recently I grabbed a burger from a spot called Vinsetta Garage. It’s actually an old mechanics garage turned restaurant!! How cool is that?! Love the vintage vibes and design!! Check out my meal below…
4. Dewy/Glowy Skin, Lashes & Red Lips
Lately, my love for a red lip has grown tremendously. If you asked me 15 years ago about a red lip, I may have shrugged off the thought. But now, I want to softly makeup my face just to put on a red lip! More than red lips, I love dewy and glowing skin. I mean a real glow, not sparkling highlights. I simply am attracted to the supple skin that has a glow of moisturized tones. To add to That, who doesn’t love poppin lashes?!
Yup, I’ve talked my own self into going to head on over to Colourpop to grab more subtle highlights and more red lippie sticks lol. Stay tuned this week for style lusts! What small (or big) things are you loving at this moment?
Later Cupcakes 💋
