Dear Doily

Feewf! 30 Days of Happiness- harder than I thought it would be! I’ve realized that food and flowers are what keep me smiling most days. 🙂 To celebrate, how bout one more thing that I have a major soft spot for: The Doily.

Dear Doily,
You remind me of tea time and grandma’s house. I wish I could make you myself but it seems kind of silly to learn when I can buy you for 99 cents in a multitude of colors and sizes. Please continue to pop up in unexpected places and forms for generations to come.

Till we craft again,

Alex

What makes me happy- Day #30

I love me some dried mango.

I went to Starbucks yesterday, Earth Day, and they were giving away a free cup of coffee if you brought in your own mug/cup. Go SBux! That’s when I saw this little orange bag- the Shakespearian pun catching my attention. I’ve been really into dried mango lately but it’s actually pretty hard to find without all the added sugar and preservatives. It’s so much better on it’s own! Glad my local coffee shop is offering it, even if it is 2 bux for a pretty small portion. Just one more reason to bypass a gooey baked good. And trust me, I need all the help I can get in that department. 🙂

What makes me happy- Day #29

Yes, this is the best fort ever. Yes, I did build it. And by “build” I mean build AND play with it. Wish I could have shown off the inside of this baby- fully carpeted interior (half camo, half zebra print), furnished with a mini table with a snack spread and both entrances gaurded by an army of stuffed bears. 8-year-old Alex would have lived in this thing for weeks. Maybe it’s a good thing that playing in forts isn’t socially acceptable in adult world. Otherwise, I might be an outcast saving a lot of money on rent right now.

What makes me happy- Day #28

I know, I know…I wasn’t supposed to post any more pictures of food. I couldn’t help it. This gigantic pile of deliciousness is an order of Supreme Mojos from Shakey’s Pizza Parlor. Circle fries topped with cheese, salsa, bacon, sour cream and chives. They are to DIE for and will subsequently kill you if eaten in one sitting. They were my fat intake for the month. SO worth it!

What makes me happy- Day#27

It might sound a bit cliché for a girl to say that a new pair of shoes makes her happy- don’t care. I’ve been searching for the perfect pair of wedges for a while now. Being a gal of height, I rarely find the need to wear anything but flats and sneakers. I also have a boyfriend who happens to be the same height as me and appreciates when I’m not hovering next to him in 3 inch heels.  But being in LA as it’s slowly warming to the perfect sun dress temperature has really put me on the prowl for some strappy, leather corkforms. These were not only the perfect fit, color and strappiness, but they were actually very comfortable. DSW, even though your shoe collection is largely intimidating, every once in awhile I  have the patience to slowly wander down each of your 300 aisles to find what I’m looking for. Today was one of those days and I came out a winner! I’d also like to think I’m celebrating Earth Day Anthropologie style- you know, with the whole cork thing I mentioned in my last post.  I encourage everyone to go out and purchase the perfect pair of cork wedges to celebrate Earth Day- April 22nd!

Anthropologie’s window display that I saw while at the Grove today. This store in general is like my happy pill. I could spend hours there much to my boyfriend’s dismay. The idea for their current Earth Day window display is actually very interesting. Check it out!

I’ve been a Lush fan for about 3 years now. Walking into a Lush store automatically makes my day. All natural, yummy bath/skincare products. If you haven’t been Lushified yet, it’s only a matter of time.

This beautiful set of watercolors painted and sent to me by my sister. As of today, they adorn the wall above my bed. I’m going to love getting out of bed and seeing them every morning!
