remember the little things

Sometimes we forget to take a step back and appreciate the little things in life, I mean hey, it's easily done. With all our ongoing 'dramas' whether it be school, university, or work, life has a way of keeping us all on our toes at one point or another. My great nan used to always say, "Lauren, don't forget the little things in life" - at the time this was just something I nodded at, and back then my main problems in life was that my pack lunch box didn't have as many good treats in than my friends....
So, here's a little post of some of the little things that are making me smile at the moment and that I would not normally appreciate, hope you enjoy!

A large mug of green tea, not only does it make me feel like my insides are getting a good ol' detox but it also fills my room with the most gorgeous minty scent. Mmm, my nostrils love this little treat.
Okay, so there's a bit of a theme going on here. I am trying to eat a lot healthier and only fill my body with goodness in the hope this will transpire on to my skin and hair. Yeo Valley Yoghurts are heavenly, I could quite easily sit and eat a whole tub in one sitting and in that way they are acting as a replacement to my much love Ben & Jerry's. What are your healthy eating treats?
Little touches of colour such as this Ikea pot plant never fail to brighten up my bedroom and this little shrub does make me smile, I must admit. Being fake as well I don't have to worry about keeping it alive, I have a bit of a reputation as a flower killer...
Every now and then I indulge and snap up a few new Essie shades from Boot's and this month's favourite has to be 'Ballet Slippers'. A gorgeous milky, pastel pink that I've been lusting after for quite some time and it's finally part of my collection, yay! 
Interiors and decor posts have become a bit of an addictive read of mine for the past couple of months, I'm currently in the half-way stage of transforming my bedroom into the oasis I have envisioned. Wilkinson's have some great little decorative pieces and I picked up this silver mosaic tea light holder for around £5, bargain! Isn't it pretty?

What little things have brightened up your day recently?
