Feel-Good Fridays

What’s Your Feel-Good Song At The Moment?

TGIF y’all! And Happy April Fool’s Day! 😀 Did you do any pranking? Or were you the one pranked?

Listen, I have a question for you and I want your answers in the comments section. K?

But first, the introduction:

If previous posts are enough indication you all probably know by now early mornings are my absolute favorite part of the day. We (you and I) have exchanged our early-morning routines in this post and learned a bit about each other – always such a treat 😀

We’ll I’ve recently upped the ante in that department so to speak. I’m now using my feel-good song as my alarm. I used to use this zen-y, slow-rise melody which honestly was a very good choice but, every once in a while you just have to shake things up, no?

So that got me curious about what other people’s feel-good songs are and of course I have to ask the question on my blog 🙂

I shall start the ball rolling with my own happy-ness anthem which izzzz:

Now look me in the eye and tell me if that’s not a great song to begin the day with XD Dancing absolutely recommended 😀

Okay so it’s now YOUR turn – what’s your feel-good song at the moment? You don’t have to be like me and use it as your morning alarm, just that it makes you smile or places you in a happy/inspired/motivated/peaceful space.

You can give me just one or an entire list. Run with it! I shall be waiting for your answers 🙂 Seriously, I will.

Have a wonderful weekend beautiful people ❤

Your Own Special Place


We all need a special place in our house that’s uniquely ours. It can’t always be an entire room but, perhaps a special dresser that holds all our treasures or a whole table top that displays items that spark joy … even just our side of the bed can be made into that special spot.

I remember in our previous house, I had an entire drawer that contained all my snail-mailing paraphernalia. Pens in all colors, cute scented stationery, eye-catching stickers, rolls of colorful washi tape – ahhh, paradise! I’d be at work agonizing over a project and just a single thought of that drawer would give me a second wind.

Ever had that feeling?

Our new place has a second story balcony that I immediately took to upon arrival. I love, love, love gazing up at the sky in the evenings watching clouds float by, counting stars, even following the lights of an airplane. It’s just one of those luxuries in life that doesn’t cost a thing 🙂


It wasn’t long after that I dragged an old armchair to the spot. Then followed an old chair to prop my feet on. And now I relax there at the end of each day contemplating the heavens (and to sometimes congratulate myself in private for cooking something edible. LOL!)

It’s not much but it’s mine. It’s far from the reading corners I fantasize about, but I think I can still add some sweetness to it by putting some potted plants.


Speaking of which, I bought this kit that included mimosa seeds and it looks like they’re willing to come out and play.  I hope they don’t change their minds!

Do you have a special nook or a personal place in your house?  Why is it special to you? How do you personalize it?
