Hi guys, I hope everyone had or is currently having a spectacular Mother's Day! I had lunch with my mum and some other relatives yesterday. Here's this week's post in my Happiness series, and to read the first post of the series and find out what it means, click here.
1. Happy in Pink

Pink heels: c/o Ami Club Wear (link here)
I'm sure everyone has a favourite LBD already...but what about a LPD (little pink dress)? Haha I know the colour pink isn't everyone's cup of tea, but it's one of those colours that make me feel happy and calm. It's always been one of my favourite colours ever since I was little, so it's no surprise that I had to have a staple pink dress in my wardrobe that I can wear for a variety of occasions. This one from The Design Closets has an elegant cutting at the shoulders and flared design, making it perfect for high tea or corporate events, but the bright pop of colour also makes it a fun party or going out piece.
2. Pretty decor
Flower pens: Typo
Love bunny ring holder: c/o Wonderelle
The other day I came across these really pretty flower pens from Typo! They look like lovely little bunches of lavender flowers, and they even have the stem and ribbon detailing around them. But they're actually fully-functional pens as well! Haha although I have to admit I was much more drawn to the aesthetics over the practicalities when I bought these. They just look so pretty all together, sitting in a thin vase or a glass jar like I've put mine in.
The other pretty things I have sitting with my new lavender pens, are some mini Dior perfume bottles from my mum, my Wonderelle bunny ring holder (here), and my new Victoria's Secret fragrance (called 'Fabulous') from my boyfriend.
I know some of these things don't really serve any practical purpose, but collecting pretty little knick-knacks and arranging them together nicely can make your room so pleasant to be in. It's amazing what being surrounded in pretty decor can do for your mood!
This past week I also had the pleasure of doing boxing for the first time! Not really proper boxing, but more like 'boxercise' at the gym. And it was amazing! I hardly ever get angry, which is quite unhealthy- but being forced to deliver punches repeatedly helps relieve some tension and stress even if I normally bottle it inside, or don't know how to relieve it. It's incredible how empowering the whole boxing experience is- as soon as you put on the gloves and start, it creates an immense boost to how you perceive yourself and your own strength. I did hurt my nails, fingers, knees, and back, but I'm definitely returning to boxing and hoping to make it a regular thing :)
