Happiness on the Cheap

Today I thought I’d close Friday with a little word on happiness. While I completely believe it’s easy to be happy for free, I thought this little shopping list of items that feeds my inner impulse buyer may spark a little whimsy in your day. So today, I present to you, 25-items-that-if-anything-can-bring-a-smile!

1. Bubble bath. Calgon, or Mr. Bubble, take me away!

2. Socks. Cold feet never = happy.

3. Hand crème. Luxury in small packages.

4. Mustache Drink Markers. Hahahahaha. Laughing with wine already.

5. New lipstick. Because a girl gotta feel like she’s it.

6. Head Massager. For when the thinking gets rough.

7. Slinky! Enough said.

8. A new journal always makes me happy, always.

9. Coupled with a new pen, it would send me over the moon.

10. Cracker Barrel Peg Game keeps my stomach at bay every time I go for breakfast
