Thank goodness I’m posting a picture from earlier this week when I was in a much happier normal mood…  I had a really really rough day today and am actually still a bit down in the dumps…

So - I’m going to do the “Sound of Music” remedy and will think of my favorite things to cheer me up.  Let’s see…

dark molten lava chocolate cake

a hot bubble bath

puppies to wrestle and cuddle with

soft breeze, warm sun and a welcoming white sandy beach

smells of Christmas – pine, cinnamon, apple pie

old sounds of Sinatra

classic soothing sounds of Debussy, Mozart, Chopin, & Bach

driving with no destination other than adventure

colorful fragrant tulips, lilacs, and lavender

food! from sinful fried chicken to decadent filet mignon

dancing without care to Lady Gaga & Rihanna

friends that have stuck through the good and bad times  

looking in someone’s eyes and feeling that “spark”

butterflies (in the stomach & in the air!)

I actually feel a little better…   :) 

What do you do to ease the stress of the day and make yourself feel better when down in the dumps?

That's a gorgeous blouse - and I love how you accessorized with the jade-y tones.

Is it weird that after a long-a day at work, it helps me to zone out by scrolling through Ebay? And rocking out to Ke$ha. And vodka sodas sometimes help too.

I love this shirt--the color, the back! Glad "The Sound of Music" helped! :)

Go to the mall! Drink a Blueberry Lager! (Both of which I did this evening.) :)

Love that colour. I wonder if it will go with dark/black hair as well.
To de-stress I like to curl up with a good book, a steaming cup of tea and a warm cat by my side.

Lesa said...

I have to agree with everyone and say I love the color of the shirt and the style. I also love that you added turquoise with it.

Do you have a pup or a cat to snuggle with, that and a good book do it for me.

I hope your smile is back really soon.

I like to lose myself in a movie or the internet with red wine in hand and a comfort snack of choice. Love the shoes and top is just gorgeous.

LOVE that top!!

To ease stress I talk with amazing friends and family or shop or take a bubble bath or run.

Sorry you had a bad day - hope tomorrow is better!!

I'm sorry you had a bad day! I ease stress by watching bad reality tv and eating chinese food. It's quite effective (to me anyway).

Umm, that blouse is fantastic! The back detailing is just so pretty! I love things with special details like that.

Alyssa said...

LOVE your purse. Also, it is a great idea to make a list of your favorite things.. I used to do that a lot more but I think I should do it pretty soon on my blog again! I also love many of these things too... ! :)

thanks so much for all the sweet comments :) I really appreciate it!

fannypao26 - I purchased the top a couple weeks ago, so it may still be there. But you're right - they switch things up there SO fast!!

How do you find such great things at such inexpensive stores? (i.e. the gorgeous perwinkle top; the fun, bold, cool ring; the purple suede pumps?!) I especially looooooovvvvvvvvveeeeee the top. It is stunning front to back. =)

By the way, this is one of my most favorite blogs of yours. I loooooovvvvvvveeeeeeee your list, in particular.
