Transform the Mundane | Tips for a happier week

-Put your head phones in while grocery shopping & listen to something up beat, don't be afraid to bust a dance move or mouth the lyrics to your favorite song.
-Exercise & don't make excuses! Take your pup for a walk, it's good for both of you. Find out what days the closest yoga studio offers community classes at a cheaper price & ask your friends to go too! 
-Make a meal you're proud of. Plan ahead to roast a whole chicken using fresh herbs. (Don't forget to include your greens!)
-Light candles… all the time. 
-Go to the library & pick up a book that you don't have to commit to. Find something you've always been curious about & learn something new. 
-Rent a movie.
-Bake something & give it away.
-Listen to music you don't normally listen to; try 60s French Pop or symphonic! 
-Buy yourself flowers at the grocery store. 
-Have friends over for a late drink on a whim.

And always take pictures of the mundane, find ways to make your routine more beautiful, I promise it will make life more enjoyable. Pretend the flowers bloom for you.

With love, 


  1. Love this, thank you for the wonderful yet simple tips! I might just have to buy myself flowers soon :)

  2. "pretend the flowers bloom for you" awesome line. i truly squealed when i saw you posted; love your words.

  3. I'm lovin' this list! I love lighted candles. As soon as the sun goes down those babies are lit! Another thing I love to do is have classical music playing during the day, my favorite is having the cello or piano playing lightly in the background.

  4. i don't know if i have enough bravery to dance while grocery shopping. but i guess that's worth a try!

  6. You are one of those people who inspire others so easily.
    Dancing while grocery shopping is something I haven't done yet, makes me wonder what kind of music you listen to. What are your favourite bands?
    Have a nice weekend!
