What Makes Me Happy... (:

The other day I was thinking... what makes a person happy?

I believe that happiness is based on a persons perspective of their life and life in general. It is true that the energy you put out to others is the energy you receive back from others.

Everyone in this world has difficulties to deal with but I also believe that everyone in this world is given blessings. The key is to focus on the blessings in life even when you are going through difficult times.

After pondering this, I made a list of the little and big things in life that make me smile.

Enjoy and I hope this brightens your day!

I couldn't say no...

These lovely pastries are from a client who simply would not take no for an answer. She came in for a haircut and told us she wanted to bring us something from the bakery. As you know, I try my best to eat healthy and my husband does the same. We are both very active and exercise regularly. Well, this client was not excpeting no from us! Since we would not tell her anything we liked, she took it upon herself to pick out these lovely delights below.

What can I say? These are photo & blog worthy!

How could we say no? How could we say no to this sweet women who wanted to give us something from her heart? After peaking into the pastry bag, I couldn't say no to these yummy delights either! I gave in and my taste buds thanked me!
One day is one day... and tomorrow is another!
(:

You all who are trying to eat healthy and exercise along with me, don't forget to let loose every now and then and indulge in something delicious!

Mom's Chiffon by China Glaze

I'm absolutely loving this color, Mom's Chiffon by China Glaze! This is the color I'm currently wearing & it looks so stunning for spring & summer. I think this is a color that would look great with almost any skin tone as well. It's a color suitable for day time wear but can also be carried into a night look because it stands but in a classy way that still makes it ok for day time wear.

What do you all think?
