The Friday Five | Things Currently Putting A Smile On My Face

Things Currently Putting A Smile On My Face

1. Peonies
My all time favourite flowers are in season right now and oh my gosh, having a fresh bouquet of these beauties in the house puts an instant smile every time I look at them.

2. Gel Nails
The other week I gave myself a nude/blush colour gel manicure, complete with negative space and gold gem features. Not only am I a bit bloody chuffed with myself at how pretty they turned out, they're also holding up much better than I expected. Every time I catch a glimpse of them, I'm like 'Gurrrrl, you done good'. Plus I saved myself like, £20.

3. Heart Club Classics
Most evenings at 7pm my radio is on and I'm dancing around my house (usually in some over sized and horrendously unattractive comfies) to the likes of Daniel Bedingfield, Salt N Pepa and Jamiroquai. I'd say it's my guilty pleasure but I don't feel guilty one bit. I bloody love it. Nothing gets them endorphins flowing like busting some truly terrible moves to Gina G's 'Ooh Ahh Just A Little Bit'.

4. Putting Snapchat Filters On My Dog
I put so much time and effort in to forcing Snapchat to recognise my dogs furry face as an actual face... and every time it happens I consider it a wonderful achievement, find it far too amusing, and instantly start spamming my story with pictures and videos of him with various filters (yesterday he was rocking the new Marilyn Monroe look). I imagine everyone is sick of it by now but... I'm not so I don't care :).

5. My New Business Venture
Ok so if you read yesterdays post then you'll have known this was coming, but of course I had to talk about it in todays Friday Five! I recently opened a little online store that I've been working on for a while - Homebird Boutique. I'm over excited about it and there's a lot of nervous energy buzzing around me right now. Every 'like', 'follow' or 'share' it gets sends me over the moon and I'm just so excited for the future!
