What is happiness

November 1, 2013

Happiness can be a lot of things. the unexpected kindness of a stranger, good news from a friend… but those cannot be photographed. So for this post, I have chosen to show you nice things that have made me happy lately.

One of the cutest makeup sets I’ve ever owned, by Pupa.

A pair of hot pink satin killer heels from Reiss. Hurry! You can still get them here, on sale!

Mr Tibbs’ smile.

A lovely 60’s poppy dress and a Welsh tapestry cape I got from a blog sale.

Finding vintage items with the original tag still on.

My beautiful gauzy original Biba, via Kinky Melon’s Retro Boutique.

How about you? What has made you happy lately?

    I mean Mr. Tibbs. Honestly. I swear I typed a T not a G. Oh, maybe I did. Whatever. I’ve been detoxing from prescription drugs these past few weeks. THAT makes me happy. I hope….

    • Reply Mrs. D November 2, 2013 at 06:09

      Haha, it happens. Good luck with the detoxing… Prescription drugs can sometimes be really nasty 🙁

    When life gets you down there’s nothing better than a bit of a splurge on pretty, frivolous things to life the spirits! Those shoes are sexy and that bit of vintage deadstock looks incredible! Big hugs! xxx

    That Pupa set is so cute, they always do such great packaging (which I’m sometimes a huge sucker about!) Wish we could get it easier here, there used to be a little shop that sold it locally, but sadly its now gone the way of many small businesses ): that doesn’t make me happy. But wowza the other goodies too… those shoes are fantastic one of my fav colours in general, pink does make me happy! Another Welsh tapestry cape? Soooo lovely as is the dress and definitely finding unused, tag still on vintage — from Portugal no less! My friends & loved ones make me happy, they can always put a smile on my face as your post just did! XXX

    Oh my gosh, you got that Biba from Kinky Melon. I saw that at Vix’s house and was blown away by it beauty. I love your vintage finds and Mr. Tibbs is adorable. Does he live with you?

    • Reply Mrs D November 11, 2013 at 09:58

      I did! Vix was great, she reserved it for me until I got paid 🙂
      Mr Tibbs is a lovely dog and as much as I would have loved to have him living with me, a fried was dog sitting him and we went out one day to take photos because he is such a nice dog!
