Why Don’t You…?

By a non-sweet food treat? A beautiful cut of steak? A tiny bottle of truffle oil? A wedge of divine cheese?

Buy a bubble blower?

Wear a silk eye mask to bed? Like a movie star?

Always have a window open? At least a crack? Constantly feel fresh air on your skin?

Play Jenga?

Spend a few hours in bed when it’s neither morning nor night? Read? Doze? Make love?

Dance in the nude? Just for a second? Just for yourself?

Thread your sneakers with colourful laces? Neon? Rainbow? Glow in the dark?

Freeze cranberry juice in ice trays and have them in your G&T?

Brush and braid your bestie’s hair? Like when you were kids?

Carly is the founding editor of Smaggle which launched in 2007 back when blogging was weird. She has appeared in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Cosmopolitan and Cleo magazines. Hoop earrings are totally her thing and she almost got run over by Myf Warhurst while out jogging one day.

    I swear by my silk eye mask. My boyfriend stays up much later than me, and it’s perfect for blocking out all the light and getting a sound night’s sleep.

    That still shot from Breakfast at Tiffany’s is gorgeous. It’s one of my favourite films, because I love Audrey Hepburn and her cat looks identical to my cat Ringo.
