Happy Diaries: New Books, New Cupcakes And More Things That Bring Me Joy!

Happy Diaries
A list of things & moments that made me happy this week.
As per usual, here is a small peep into the moments and things that made me happy & laugh this week. Sometimes these lists are long, and sometimes they are short, but nonetheless, I am always here to share a few snippets with you across the blog. I look forward to these every week so sit back and enjoy!!
5 Simple Happy Things
  • I finally threaded my eyebrows after looking like a wolf for most of the week. I must say that every time I treat myself to those little "self-care" moments I start to feel better about life.
  • I don't know why this makes me so happy but I washed all of my clothes, pillows, pillowcases, and covers and I swear it made me sleep like an angel. I don't know about you but every time I complete a deep clean of my room I automatically think it makes me have the best sleep ever! 
  • I started journaling again and it felt good. Even though my blog is somewhat of a journal I still like to free write from time to time. I used to free write all the time during Undergrad so that I can come up with choreography and now I just do it as a form of therapy.
  • This week I found a very large pack of Sour Straws for $1.25 and I have been enjoying them more than I thought I would. As a 90's baby, that candy is so nostalgic that I can't even begin to explain the memories it brought into my brain. I thought about everything from Field Day in elementary school to chilling with friends in my back yard! It made me think about how simpler life used to be and I wish it could go back to those days!
  • As I have been saying in the previous blog posts this week, it has been unusually hot around the city and I couldn't really figure out why. I just took the small ray of sunshine and took it as a blessing and didn't question it any further. However, late last night it rained and then it rained again in the wee hours of this morning. I don't know why but those moments lying in bed listening to rain were very peaceful to me. Sometimes the rain can literally rain on my plans but this time I really enjoyed those moments of quietness.
  • I found this cute cupcake place that specializes in Birthday Cake mini's and they are amazing!
  • I am reading a new book and it's totally out of my ELEMENT but I am loving it! I am sticking to the goal of reading more and I am proud of myself for it!
As the year decides to fly by, I am learning to be more appreciative of all of the little things around me. I know I say this all the time but life is always going to be full of ups and downs but if you count the simple joys in between, I promise you life will feel that much sweeter!

Always Living and Forever Learning,
