The little things in life are sometimes the most treasured & pleasurable. Sometimes life seems to chug along full pelt with no sign of any breaks or stop signs, and diverts us from what is important. Autumn/Winter is approaching & universally we agree on the pleasure of roaring fires, mulled wine, Christmas fairs, crunchy Autumn leaves underneath our feet and cold breath that emanates from cups of coffee/hot chocolate or tea. Sometimes a waddle outside in 3 pairs of socks, knee high boots, a top, a jumper and a parka is actually the most perfect thing. I appreciate every season as it comes around, and Summer this year has left me dumb founded with the glorious rays encouraging people out of their jeans into bikinis and swimwear, and into the sea! However Autumn will always have a special place in my heart, and so will the perks that come with the weather.
Sometimes I love nothing more than buying a brand spanking new notepad, with gorgeous aesthetics and crisp empty pages to fill with my messy handwriting. A milky but strong tea, with one sugar won’t leave my side, unless for a hot mulled wine that I get easily lured into. Autumn/Winter is about comfort; I still like to portray my personality and style through my clothes, but you cannot beat an oversized Tee and a comfortable pair of leggings to soothe and comfort yourself after the high heeled cleated sole memories of Summer.
My new favourite new mug to add to my ever growing collection is from ‘That Gift Site’. I have a soft spot for personalised items, but particularly when it comes to my blog. I have purchased a few pieces of jewellery relevant to my blog, but nothing seems more apt than aiding my hot drink obsession than a pretty little mug.
As I previously mentioned, there is nothing that beats a crisp, clear empty notepad, and this has to be my new favourite. Nikki Strange is stocked at The Little Deer and has an array of beautiful designs to choose from, so deciding on ‘The Northern Lights’ was a difficult decision. The pattern is beautiful, and despite never experiencing such a fantastic wonder it brings a little piece of it home for me. I am a daydreamer but usually my thoughts, ideas and poems don’t leave the world in my head, let alone get pen to paper. I am hoping to start channelling my thoughts into this notebook & sharing what’s going on in loopy-land.
What are the little things for you?
