Why Don’t You…?

Go on a cocktail crawl with your bestie? Wander from bar to bar in your city? Having one perfect drink at each location?

Allow yourself to daydream? Make a cup of tea? Sit outside and allow your mind to wander while you drink it?

Cover something in rhinestones? Your phone case? A little notebook for your handbag? The pen holder on your desk?

Learn to read palms? Give positive and uplifting readings to people who are feeling down?

Buy a sheet of beautiful stickers? Place one on every letter, report, message that you write? Make it your trademark?

Wear your hair in a very messy up do with no other make up than a splash of red lippy? Look like a carefree urchin child for just one day?

Make healthy little snack packs of carrot sticks and hummus? Small bags of nuts? Deliver them around your office at 3pm and make everyone’s day?

Buy a mini blackboard? Hang it where you can see it first thing in the morning? Write yourself an extraordinary message to wake up to every day?

Buy a bag of Skittles? Divide them into colours? Eat them in your favourite order? Green, yellow, orange, red, purple?

Get yourself a big glorious sunhat and wear it every single day when you step outside? Even in winter?

    Ha! Never a need to buy a bag if skittles here. We buy them in bulk at Costco so that they are always at hand. Best lolly ever.

    Might have to put the slash of red lippy on though- love that look
