This week and next C and E will share a little more insight into the simple things in life that bring us joy. There are the staple obvious sources of joy, family, friends….food. In the past 6 months between social media posts, pins and blog posts I may have mentioned mine. These are the fun kind of blog posts where we get to explore a little bit more about ourselves and get to share ourselves with you! Without further adieu here are my top 5 simple little things that bring a smile to my face, and I can never have enough.
Never mind that I live in the desert, and it’s typically over 100 degrees from May to October. My house, RV and even RZR have blankets floating around. I love the soft simple comfort that a silky Velvet or shaggy Sherpa can provide. Anytime I’m sitting blogging or watching a movie I will get a little chill and this little fluff of heaven brings me warmth. I love that there are so many types of materials to choose from. This is one of my favorites from Amazon. For an even more decadent blanket, I love a good fuzzy heated throw like this one.
A nice warm mug of fragrant tea is always good to have with a fuzzy blanket! I am a sucker for tea shops like Teavana. It’s always a fun adventure to smell and taste flavors from around the world. If time allows, a lose leaf is a great way to experience a great variety of tea types. Red, Herbal, Green, Black, Oolong even Flowering tea can be fun. When in a rush, the Keurig is a great time saver. Many of the traditional bag companies also offer K-Cup flavors. My favorite K-Cup flavor is this Chai Latte from Amazon. I didn’t forget about the traditional bag tea. This is a great all around option from lounging, to rushing, to having a sip of something at the office. There are a ton of health benefits from the various styles of tea, and blended teas that promote better digestion and even better skin.
Next to all the fun flavors of tea in my pantry, are the even more fun and cute cups to enjoy them. I am addicted to Starbucks cups, everything from travel tumblers, to mugs, to cold cups. This is a little guilty pleasure I like to splurge on and are always on my Christmas list from Santa. You may have noticed my slight obsession with the cups and teas from our social media posts and even the pins I upload to Pinterst. The best part, if you are on the Starbucks rewards program, you earn stars on cup purchases online and in store.
Manicures and Pedicures
Earlier this month I shared thoughts on the different types of manicures. These same techniques can equally be applied to a pedicure. If you want to check it out, here is the post. Mani/pedis are my vice. This is time I can take for myself to relax and enjoy a fun way to express my style or celebrate a holiday. The best part of this guilty pleasure, you can go to a swanky salon or spa, or set up that same fun vibe at home!
Ok, I’m sure you are all suuuuuuper excited to see me posting even more pictures and blog posts about Harry Potter!!! I love all things from this fandom and pop culture. The books, plays, merchandise, movies, tattoo inspiration and theories about the characters. I love all of it. As a dedicated fan, it is so awesome to know the wizarding world will be kept alive with continuing stories such as Fantastic beasts and where to find them, and one off collections such as the Tales of Beedle the Bard. The ability to be totally immersed in the living world is just icing on the cake. I was fortunate to visit one of the many parks around the world. It is my goal in life to visit as many as possible, maybe even catch the play… maybe.
