Happiness is...

Wednesday, June 2

This is a bit of a different post for me, but I feel that it's still related to beauty, because when you're happy, you're the most beautiful person you can be.

(Note: this post is for Get Lippie's Birthday Giveaway.)

Rings, rings, rings. I love rings.

Writing. It's my release.

All of Miyazaki's films.

Films by Sofia Coppola. She has a way of filming that makes one feel like they are watching a dream, rather than a movie.

Books, books, and more books. I am probably the most avid reader I know. I'll read anything.

Cats, music, vintage images.

Getting dolled up for no reason. Wearing lipstick. Just feeling pretty.

Summer bike rides. I don't go on them often enough but, boy, do they make me happy.

Summer. Summer makes me so happy. It's just a time of relaxation and iced teas and lounging outside and sunglasses and sandals and florals.

There are many, many more things that make me happy. Curling up in bed on a rainy day, Klimt, Degas, long baths, new magazines, vintage-inspired fashion, photography, nail polish, obviously.

So, tell me, what makes you happy?
