Five Things Making Me Happy Right Now

Five Things Making Me Happy Right Now

Happy Monday! I thought I would start this week off with a positive post of with five things making me happy right now. I wanted to share a few things that I’m loving as well leading me to feeling happy. I don’t do my monthly favorites post anymore like I use to them regularly and share what my favorite products are. I noticed I have a few favorites and wanted to tell you about them. So here are five things making me happy right now!

Chambray Denim Skater Skirt

Right now I have been living in this skirt. It is extremely hot in Manila and when I do have to go out I always wear this and throw it on with different tops to create an effortless outfit that I’m not too hot in. I have so many other clothes but this skirt is the comfiest. It is light weight and doesn’t stick to me in the humid and muggy heat. I’m so glad I bought this a few years ago and now regret not getting another as it is perfect and you have seen me wear it too many times than I can count. See me wearing it here, here and here to name a few.

Acrylic Nails

My latest beauty obsession. I got them done for my cousin’s wedding back in March. It was a treat for myself as I finally had a special occasion to get them done for. Then in April it was my birthday and I got them in my favorite hot pink shade. I used to love getting acrylics done but haven’t gotten them done in 10 years since my high school graduation. I first got them done for my 6th grade graduation and ever since then I have loved them. I always get them done on special occasions but when I was younger I said when I had my own money I would get them done whenever I want and I made that dream come true. I hate to admit it but I have the bad habit of biting my nails so having them done or painted sure has helped with it. I actually have an appointment to get my acrylics refilled next week so yay for fresh nails!

Instastories

Now this has been something I recently got into. I had a video in my Youtube recommendations of what apps bloggers use for their Instastories and that got me curious so I watched it and downloaded them and now I have been playing with the apps and messing with the design and filters and making more Instastories to promote my new posts and videos. It’s fun and I have another creative outlet to use. I do need to start using it more other than telling you when I have a new post up and maybe now these apps will motivate me to share my life more on there. Also I have been loving watching all my fave bloggers stories before bed so that has been a apart of my night time routine. In general, Instastories makes me happy! Follow me on Instagram here!

Statement Earrings

My favorite accessory right now are statement earrings. These three right here in particular. They are so in trend and I do love a dub and colorful statement piece. I think I’ve always been an out there earring wearer. I’ve had my ears pierced at 3 months. Yes you read that correctly my mother pierced my ears when I was a three month old baby. So I’m used to earrings and those originals holes are still going 25 years later. Through my childhood I wore dainty earrings like little studs or mini hoops or whatever my mom decided she wanted me to wear. And then when I hit 13 and discovered Claire’s then I found all the crazy statement earrings. Since then I think it’s stuck and I prefer these fun colorful statement pieces to jazz up an outfit. Statement earrings have been making me happy and I think I need to buy more so if you know any shops that do great ones please give me your recommendations. Shop the earrings here, here and here.

Shopping List

  • Too Faced Peaches & Cream Base Set – I’ve been researching a new foundation and since I love the Born This Way I saw they have a matte foundation and a whole range. I want to try the primer, foundation and loose powder.
  • Too Faced Just Peachy Palette – I love peachy colors and lack of matte shadows so this seems perfect and think it’s my next palette I invest in.
  • Fab Manila XL Cord Organizer – I need an organizer for all my cords so this will solve my messy cord issue.
  • Fab Manila Olivia Carry On Bag – I love my hello kitty carry on bag but I need a simple one. I love the color and print and it’s still cutesy.
  • Fab Manila Luggage Tags – I need luggage tags as I don’t have any.
  • 6 Piece Packing Cubes – I bought a new suitcase so I need another set as I love them plus the hot pink goes so well with my luggage.

Bonus: Plans Falling Into Place

This is a bonus one making me very happy right now. Probably the one that’s making me the most giddiest and getting me through. I am in the middle of planning something and the universe is in my favor. I’m not one to believe in signs or meant to be’s but so many things have been falling into place that I think what I have planning is meant to be and I’m supposed to be going down that path. I’ll reveal what it is soon hopefully next month but for now I’m not trying to ruin it and take it’s course on its own. I know you hear so many bloggers and Youtubers talk about a secret project and can’t reveal it but mine isn’t blogging or Youtube related so I can tell you any time but I want to finalize everything to not jinx it even though a lot of it looks like it is going through. It is making me the happiest bean and I can’t wait to share my plans. Well by my shopping list above you can kind of guess but there is a whole lot more to it.

Those are five things making me happy right now plus a little bonus one thrown in. I really liked doing this rather chatty kind of post to let you know on a few things I’m loving and a few throwback stories thrown in there. Maybe I can do this every so often letting you know my current favorites or things that put a smile on my face. My schedule is a bit off at the moment but I’m trying to get back on track hopefully soon. I do enjoy blogging and hope to get my blog mojo back and think of more content. A lot is going on in my personal life and I have been focusing on that. I do think I’m going out this week to shoot some outfits so hopefully I can get that done and have some more fashion content up soon. SO that has been my fave things right now and I can’t wait to share my plans with you. You cannot tell how excited I am about them. So let me know what is making you happy right now!
