This is one of my simple little pleasures in life. Lighting up a candle and just allowing the fragrance to waft through the house just brings me such happiness. My current favorite is Slatkin & Co Candle in Peach Bellini. It could be purchased at Bath & Body Works among other places.
I think it’s very important to our over all well being that we think positive thoughts. Positive thoughts can lead to positive words which in turn will lead to positive actions. Positive actions will produce positive reactions in everything you do.
We also need to be grateful for all that we have in our lives. Gratitude stems from humility. If we are humble, grateful and positive, we would have a much happier life. Remember, life never stays the same. It can always be worse.
Have a happy heart and you’ll have a happy life.

Well it’s spring time and my fresh flower buying time is here. Once the Spring arrives I buy fresh flowers every two weeks. I love live flowers in my home. In the summer it’s usually Carnations (they are so cheap but look great) and Hydrangeas. My favorite flowers are Orchids (thou I can’t seem to keep them alive), Hydrangeas and Calla Lilies.
But for Easter weekend I got 3 dozens tulips from Trader Joe’s. Loves it!

A dear friend of mine visited Ghana and brought back a few artifacts for me. I love receiving gifts from foreign lands. These authentic Ghanaian carvings showcase the talent of a unknown Ghanaian artist and reminds me that there is talent and beauty to be found everywhere you go. I absolutely love them.

Simple things make me happy. And on my recent trip to Peir 1 imports (my sister’s fav. store), I fell in love with their napkin rings. How pretty are these?
It’s enough to make any stylish woman happy at the dinner table. These are also very easy to make yourself. I will have to do a post on how to make your own pretty napkin rings. Oh and Peir 1 Imports you guys owe me. I purchased one (yes one) dragon fly napkin ring and the sales associate totally left it out of my bag.

I’ve recently decided to redecorate my bedroom. I’ve been on the hunt for gorgeous throw pillows. My search led me to Etsy where I stumbled on PARK by Carlos Santiago. He uses very fun and sophisticated prints for his pillows, which I think would make a gorgeous addition to any room. On average, pillows cost $50 – $60 a piece. As a small business owner, I’m all for supporting small business so I will patronize.
PARK by Carlos Santiago can be purchased here.
