5 Happy Things

Happy Tuesday! It’s such an amazing cold, crisp, and sunny day here in London! I haven’t done a round-up post for a while. For me, blogging and Instagram are a lot about appreciating the little things in life – the beautiful everyday things that often don’t get photographed. See more happy lists here, and here are the little moments that made me happy this past week…

1/ Making a mess experimenting with textures for new print designs
2/ I stopped at Boots on the way home from work to pick up some things and couldn’t help but nip into Topshop. So glad I did because I found this beaut of a dress on sale at less than half price. Love ma stripes 😉
3/ These gorgeous feather earrings arrived all the way from the US of A. I picked these out from the Gifts for Her section at Uncommon Goods as I have a little obsession with feathery things! I love how unique they are.*
4/ The boyf turned up at dinner on Saturday night with this amazing 100% cacao hot chocolate bar for me. We tried it out on Sunday night whilst watching Flight (brilliant movie) and it was deeelicious. He got it from M&S and it was divine made with almond milk with a couple of teaspoons of agave syrup to sweeten it up. I can’t stop drinking hot chocolate right now so I’m trying to make it as healthy as possible.
5/ A new sweet little new cafe opened up right by my boyfriend’s flat (lits a 10 sec walk away) so we nipped in for coffees and a bacon toastie (for him) before work on Wednesday. It was a lovely break and treat in the middle of the week.

What nice little things have made your last week?

    I love stripes too! That dress looks to pretty (and I also love the bright red nail polish!). I do like the way instagram and blogging help me to appreciate and remember all the little fun details of my life! Glad you've had such a nice start to your week 🙂
