The Little Things

30 Apr

It’s the little things that make me happy, that make me smile cheek to cheek. Whether it’s a plant, a nice nail polish, colorful veggies or a simple trinket.  These are the things that keep me content, happy and alive.  At the end of the day, these little things make me scream like a little girl. Take a peek!!

Green water pale can be found at Crate and Barrel

I went to Target to buy two, but I couldn’t resist! I couldn’t decide. I was standing there trying to decide. 15 minutes later I was talking my self in and out of which one I should take. “This would be perfect for work.” “This color I could wear during the weekend.” On and on I went until finally I told myself I deserve it!

I promise, I really wanted to pick another color, but my eyes and my heart were set on this, can you blame me?

This on the go OPI travel case has meant so much to me,  maybe even as much my cell phone. It’s convenient,  fun, cute and it cuts to the chase.

essie: Meet me on sunset.

Bright veggies!! I have a great idea for these beauties!! Stay tuned.

I got this macaron when I went to the The Huntington Library from my previous post here. I snagged the last one! This little cutie can be used for your tiny jewels, mints or use it like I do for vitamins.

If you’re anything like me you forget to take your vitamins. You say you’ll start tomorrow, but let’s face it- tomorrow never comes. Who gets excited over taking vitamins anyways?  My little Macaron case has since then changed my mindset. I’m always so excited to pull this Parisian raspberry trinket out. It makes me see vitamins in another light.

These beauties can be found at Bottega Louie, one of my favorite eateries.

And I, chose the Raspberry macron.

Meet Ham!!! When it comes to flowers, I’m not the best caretaker. I water them, I shed light on them, I feed them, yet I get no luck. So my husband bought me this tiny cacti. 1) hoping to not murder it and 2) he said  “I stay long hours in the kitchen” and he didn’t want  me to feel lonely and that’s how Ham came to live. Why Ham? Well, there’s no reason. I named my cacti solely because it makes me happy, makes me smile, and it makes me feel like a big Ham!!  Lets see how long Ham will last me. It’s the little things that make me happy.

As always, Carolina xoxo

    I like your reasoning when it comes to shopping nail polish, reminds me of someone 😉 I love the look of macroni but I just don’t like the way they taste. And I had to laugh about Ham. I wish him long and happy life… that’s coming from a well-known plant killer, me 🙂

      Sometimes you have to be reasonable especially at their price.

      Macroni are like cupcakes they look very pretty and sometimes they don’t taste all the great.

      I will have to provide an update on Ham, as he keeps me company.

      Thanks for stopping by, it is always a pleasure to hear from you.
