No matter how busy and demanding your day can be, and no matter how much you complain about life, there are always little things that can brighten your day.
You thrive and compete at work, you fall in love, and you shop, sometimes bearing the angst of the credit card aftermath; all these for the sake of happiness.
But if you just take notice, it´s the little things that matter most in life. You don´t need to spend a fortune shopping in order to be happy, you simply have to pay attention to those tiny things that bring you smile.
Treat Yourself with these Simple Ways
Every Friday, a blog post here at Creative Fashion will be spent listing down simple ways to bring you smile and inspiration, from breakfast to bedtime.
1. Buy yourself an elegant pen
Whenever you pull a pen out from your bag, whether to sign a document, fill a visa form or write a simple love note for your partner, you see the bling of your elegant pen, it inspires you to enjoy the experience. Imagine doing it with a cheap, very unflattering pen, your hand writing becomes uglier and it just ruins your mood.
On the other hand, imagine yourself clad with your most gorgeous dress and stilettos, and then somebody needs a pen, are you confident to lend yours? It´s just a pen, yes, but it shows personality.
2. Get yourself a fabulous mug painted with your favorite fashion item
I love to collect mugs and cups in different shapes, colors and designs. The very recent gifts I received were mugs with high heels and fashion designs. They´re one of the best gifts I ever had and they came from my former year 7 student. Shoes are my favorite items and whenever I see these cups, they warm my heart.
Which item do you adore the most? Have it painted on a mug. There are shops that can personalize it for you. The smile it brings you whenever you sit for a cup of coffee is insurmountable.
3. Create a fashion pin board for your daily inspiration
Getting dressed for work isn´t always fun especially if you hate your boss. Sometimes, you just wake up to a fat day or a bad hair day. What to do? Get yourself a fashion inspiration pin board. Pin here every fashion photo that you come across that you so-love. Whenever you feel down or uninspired to dress up, your fashion pin board is your true best friend.
Your inspiration board can also inspire you to try some looks that you´ve never even dared before. It can also remind you that it´s your duty to love yourself and to look good all the time.
4. Treat Yourself to New notebooks
I have two very trusted notebooks which documents all the important details of my business. They´re relatively old but it´s difficult to get a new replacement because they contain everything. The third notebook, the pink small one is a dairy. But time has come for the need of a new one. Right now, I´m in for the hunt.
You get to appreciate the goodness of life more if you fill the pages of your new notebook, end to end. Bring smile to yourself by keeping a diary or a business planner.
What are those tiny things that bring smile to your face?
