The Simple Things.

Sometimes it’s nice to just forget about the latest beauty releases, sit back and enjoy the more simple things in life. They definitely are the things that make me the happiest, so I quite often indulge in them. I find happiness a lot more in seeing flowers or spending time in my garden rather than receiving some new make-up, so I thought I’d talk through some of my favourite of the simple things.

– fresh flowers.
– a pile of pretty stationary.
– a new addition to my stripe wardrobe (for Β£9, down from Β£40)
– clean bedding.
– burning candles.
– almond hazelnut lattes with breakfast, thanks to my new coffee machine.
– having a full ebay store.
– a bright garden.
– fresh pyjamas.
– rainbows after a storm.
– having a good soak in the bath.

What are your favourite simple pleasures?

    I love this post πŸ™‚ Lovely stationery is definitely one of them for me, as an English Lit student I spend more time than I should in Waterstones/Paperchase just looking at new notebooks!

    My favourite little things are a new book, clean sheets and a fluffy dressing gown!

    Great post! I admit can get caught up with getting the newest beauty product but I've really downsized my beauty purchases this month and there's nothing quite like sleeping in freshly washed bed linens or beating an extra difficult boss in a video game!

    The simple things… sweet, subtle and the most fulfilling. I've been struggling to find some clarity in my own life, but you know the things that make me the most happiest are all at home – my husband, cat, treasures etc. Lovely frame and picture xxx

    Absolutely! Taking a moment to appreciate the simple pleasures is a must. Some of my favourite simple pleasures are listening to my kitty snore while she sleeps, laying back with a good face mask, watching the sun rise over the lake. All lovely things πŸ™‚
