Things I Love Thursday 4/12/2014

You guys, December is finally here!  I can scarcely believe that we are at the tail-end of the year.  It feels like only moments ago that I was running about waving sparklers with Miss Fairchild and her family as we rang in the new year.  And 2014 is practically over!  Time to sit down and devote some time to all the things that have made me smile this week.

This week I love:

– Waking up to birdsong.

– Being stopped in the street six times in two days to be told that I looked gorgeous by various women.  I felt very special.

-The film Pride.  I went to see it with Mum last week and it was spectacular.  I can’t recommend it enough.  If you want a feel-good movie with loads of heart, then this one is just for you.

– Finally being able to listen to Christmas carols and watch my favourite Christmas films.  I make myself wait until December 1st each year before I can indulge in all my favourite Christmas activities, and I’m so glad that the time has finally arrived.

– Sleeping on the loungeroom floor when the weather warms up.

– Getting up super early, lacing up my joggers, and going for a brisk walk around the lake.

– The feeling of utter peace at the end of my daily yoga practice.

– Crunchy celery sticks.

– The smell of the bitumen heating up in the summer sun after a shower.


-Mega glittery Christmas decorations.

– Jim Carey.  The man is a comic genius.

– Lavender-scented candles.

– Bear hugs from my dad.

What do you love this week sweetheart?  I’d love to hear all about the things that are making you grin!


  1. You *are* very special! I love:

    – That those women took the time to stop you and compliment you. Seriously, they’re awesome. Not enough people do that to each other!
    – THAT YOU GOT THE JOB! Congratulations you superstar, you.
    – Friends who, no matter how briefly they’re in town, and no matter how recently they’ve seen you, always make a point of calling you and seeing you.
    – And on that note… loyalty. In general. It’s a quality that unfortunately, I think we as a society are losing… can we bring it back like we apparently did ‘sexy’?!
    – Vanilla chai tea.
    – PIZZA. (Always!)
    – That my sister and her partner are babysitting Charlie tomorrow and I’m *gasp* going out. It’ll be my first night without her and I’m actually getting very sad thinking about coming home and knowing that she won’t be here, but… it’s time for me to be social and go and meet new people tomorrow!

    • It is really awesome that those women actually stopped to give a compliment. I try to make a point of telling people when I think they’re wearing or doing something amazing, and it’s great to see that other people take the same approach. I truly believe that the world would be a much nicer place if we took the time to tell people when they’re doing a good job and looking fierce, rather than focusing on flaws and mistakes.

      I love your list. You always put together a great mix of small pleasures and big, awesome raves!
