Few of my favorite things…

I’m really tired today for some reason and so i’ve decided to post something a little bit more light. I love spending time alone and think to myself, and do my own things when i’m feeling all worn out.  Today is one of those days. Yesterday I had a day off work as it was a public holiday where we had to pay our respects to our ancestors. I went to ShenZhen with my family to send my blessings and prayers to my grandma who has passed away 2 years ago. To say i miss her is an understatement.  I just wish I had more time with her or to see her cute smile just once more. But i know she’s in a better place now and that she lived a happy life for 96 years.

Anyhow, i thought i would share a few of my favorite things that makes my “bad days” to “good days”.   Living in a busy city  like myself, I always feel that everyone is rushing through life every single day, whether it is to reach a destination or to get something done. I remind myself at times that we gotta slow down. We have to appreciate the smaller beauties in life such as catching up with an old friend over coffee, reading a good book,  or just simply buying ourselves  a small gift because we deserve to treat ourselves once in a while. 

Sometimes the simplest thing such as buying a new perfume and smelling nice is already good enough to make me feel happy. It’s amazing how the small things in life can make such a difference.

What small wonders makes your “bad days” into “good days”?

  1. Ah these are all great little pick-me-ups. There are bad days, certainly, but you’re right, even the smallest thing can turn it into a good day. Or at least, a better day lol. For me, a quick wash of the hair, and a simple change into a nicer outfit can transform the way I feel. It’s all about confidence.

  2. Wow, your grandma lived to a ripe old age. She must have been an amazing woman. I definitely agree about little things that make you smile, it might be a new purchase, a smile from a stranger or just simply a cup of tea on a cold winters day!

    Quiet night for you to reflect :)
    When I have a bad day, some Indian curry, or Lime juice+ Thai food, or some Frozen Yogurt would do. haha! Otherwise, I turn a good day into a great day by just doing nails, getting mask done, or just cleaning up. Cleaning up my room somehow works for me.

  4. I love macaroons as well. They definitely turn bad days into good days. And it’s always nice to treat yourself. The Follie Follie rings are gorgeous.

  5. I had one of those “tired days” yesterday…It was exhausting and I couldn’t function as well as I would have liked to but I’m better now :). I adore cosmo and coffee that has fun shapes in it :)! Great pictures <3

  8. I love that you still remember your grandmother like this. Back in England we would return to my grandmother/grandfather’s graves each Christmas and lay a wreath but it was not always sad, we would laugh so much at the fun times…

    When I’m having a down day I also like to be on my own. I have to say shopping cheers me up but that isn’t always practical! So a nice glass of wine and my fav movie – usually a weepy, sometimes you just need to cry it out…
