5 Little Luxuries That Make Me Happy

We all have those little treats that make us happy. Those little luxuries that we don't necessarily need, but we love because they make us feel good and make us smile. They say that life is always about the small stuff and I couldn't agree more. So whether it's pretty flowers in your garden, getting to sit down with a cup of tea, reading a book or finding an old note in a purse. It's all about the little things. And in light of all these little things, I thought that it would be fun to write about five luxuries that make me happy.

Yep I am one of those people that cannot do anything productive until a nice cup of tea or coffee.  Who isn't? Actually you could probably go as far to say that I am addicted to caffeine and that it would be pretty impossible for me to function like a normal human being until I have had a cup of something. But for me, my favourite times are when friends or family pop over for a coffee and a chat to get me up to speed what they've been doing or to tell me their troubles. After all, a cup of tea can solves most problems. So a nice cup of tea or coffee is pretty much a daily must have. 


Flowers are one of those things that every household should have, as a blogger you could say fresh tulips or peonies are a big cliché but they really do make a house a home. Flower really make me happy. Where ever possible, I love to buy myself freshly cut peonies, roses or tulips and keep them on my dining table, porch or on my sideboard in the hallway. Mostly though, my husband is kind enough to buy me flowers every week, he knows just what I like. Anything pretty pink or pastel.

Being a self-certified beauty addict I actually love all makeup whether it's a splurge or a budget friendly product. My latest obsession when it comes to makeup are beauty subscription boxes, these little gems are probably one of the best ideas on the market. It gives some many of us the opportunity to try products that we wouldn't normally get to try and even make some amazing discoveries. 


I think we all sometimes sit and dream about what we’d treat ourselves and for me it's about buying new things for our home. I can actually sit for hours browsing Pinterest for all the beautiful images that make me want to redesign our entire home. Even when we are out and about, you'll normally find me down the home aisles trying to convince my husband that we need a new cushion, vase or  candle. I am literally obsessed. Whether's it's a fake plant to go into the kitchen window, a new cushion or throw, a new vase or something for my little blogging room I love buying new things to shakes things up in the home.

Nothing makes me happier than cuddles with my little lady and my boy. My favourite time of the day is the nursery pick up because she always greets me with the loudest reception and gives me the biggest cuddles and kisses she can give. And then when my husband gets home she loves to be picked up and have our daily family cuddle. Every time she asks for family cuddles my heart melts a little bit each time. How did we create such a loving little girl. 

So these are 5 little luxuries that make me happy. What little luxuries make you happy?
