A Few {Frivolous} Keys to Happiness


Happy Thursday! Seems like an awfully long week this week. To get me through the stretch I started thinking of few little things that make me happy. Frivolous little things, nothing that really matters like family, friends and the like. Here's what I came up with....


A pretty dress


Good hair days


Sweet underthings


Fresh flowers

What are yours?

Completely agree with everything you mentioned! And most importantly, I'm happy when the weather is actually gorgeous enough to allow long relaxing walks. It's definitely been a long week... can't wait for the weekend!

Lana said...

I agree! Especially with good hair days. If your hair is looking good it just makes everything better, doesn't it?

Jen said...

A great family, a nice glass of wine, dinner with friends, a funny movie.... what a great post! I love thinking about things that make me happy :-)

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

LOVE this! My key to happiness this week would be having all my school work done, hehe.

Great post! Good hair days always set my day to a good start. But of course nothing beats good times with family & friends :)

I love ruffles!

Valerie said...

What a great post! There are so many frivolous things that make me happy too (that dress you posted being one of them). A great meal, freshly painted finger nails, a new haircut, and coming home to a clean house.

OMG! I agree with ALL of yours! :) I would add a new pair of heels and a dirty martini. ;)

Jammer said...

Ohh I'm the same...Whatever my hair decides what it wants to do on a given day can make or break my mood!

Yes - I like to think that my hair has a mind of its own :)

Mackenzie {Design Darling} said...

oh darling, yes, yes, yes, and yes! inkeeping with your color palette, i'd add an early morning sunrise and a bowl of fresh berries! and i'm sorry about your long week — you're almost there!

Giovanna said...

yes, please, on all counts. i love these photos. the flowers, the adorable panties, and that cute dress are all fabulous. i would add a sunny spring day with a touch of a breeze, and a productive day at work that ends with a cocktail outside.
