Sometimes you may get stressed because your working a lot, you have a lot on your mind, or maybe you just haven’t had any time to yourself. Rather than kick back and watch a season or two of your favorite show (New Girl and Doctor who for me at the moment), why not get out and enjoy the weather, if it’s a nice day that is.
In my case, I’ve worked the past four days non stop, one of them being a 4 am shift. I am exhausted to say the least. I decided today would be a good day to go to the pool and grab a book I just started and have been eager to get back to. “Saint Anything” is the title and Sarah Dessen is the author, she is my favorite author without a doubt and the second I saw she wrote a new novel I went right away to target to pick one up (I even got a signed copy! :D). The cover is definitely dar ker than her previous stories (that’s just something I noticed), and the story is amazing as always.
Whenever you feel overwhelmed in your daily activities it’s nice to chill and do something relaxing, for me, that would be reading. I realized I haven’t been reading as much as I used to and that’s kind of a bummer I think. But I’m getting back into the swing of things and finding some peace before heading back to work in a few days.
Hope your summer is great so far! *_^
Something I found to boost my mood and make the day a bit better if needed is quite silly yet genius in it’s own way. I’m talking about packaging. When I buy something I’m immediately drawn to the cute packaging, anyone you ask may just tell you they’ve bought something simply based on how much they loved the packaging. There is definitely truth to that. I feel like I should start a segment where I post about a product I love with adorable packaging haha because I find it’s an instant mood booster when you look forward to seeing something. That’s what packaging is all about right? Catching someone’s eye and keeping it. What better way to make a good impression than producing a product that screams “you have to have me!”
Personally, before buying anything–especially when it verges on being pricey– I look at reviews and decide on whether or not it’s worth it. But sometimes you see something and you immediately grab it because it’s that awesome.
I’ve recently developed a love for scones myself, specifically vanilla bean, so just yesterday when grocery shopping naturally I dropped over to the bakery (something one should NEVER do when hungry) and picked up some cherry almond scones. The best decision I’ve ever made in terms of buying a dessert/ breakfast…
These were absolutely delicious and not only that but they had a pink bow guarding them in clear wrapper. It was simple yet appealing. I find it hard to find something equally as delicious and adorable but taking one bite of this scone made me feel as though I had reached the equivalent of squid-ward eating a krabby patty for the first time (sponge bob reference). Goes to show you trying new things isn’t bad and can be fun.
The key to happiness is good food, laughing, and doing what you love.
Hope everyone is doing good and enjoying the summer so far! ^_^
