In between snowstorms and birthday celebrations, it’s been go go go at Chez Daisybutter. I can barely believe two weeks have passed since my last instalment of these posts! I mean, in that time I aged an entire year and am now 27 and really not much wiser for it… I’ve also been pottering about and making my bedroom a cosy den, reading a whole lot more and I’ve moved to a new gym. It’s been quite a fortnight!
There’s a lot to be said for appreciating the smaller, not necessarily finer details of the everyday mundane. Here’s to another list of petite joys, the moments that’ve brought and woven poetry to my days, this week:
一. Working on this Instagram gallery yesterday. I’ve been itching to get a little more creative over there for a while, and this totally satiated that.
二. A birthday orchid and bottle of Prosecco from my colleagues!
三. Seeing my beautiful birthday cards propped up – pride of place – on my dresser. I’ve pretty completely moved away from my office space in favour of working from my dressing table now, if only to be surrounded by all of the treasured possessions in my bedroom.
四. Quenching my skin’s thirst with Glossier’s Moisturising Moon Mask.
五. Stacks of Instax Mini prints to be looked at whenever I fancy.
六. My Skandinavisk Lempi candle, burned as I work.
七. These earlier and earlier sunsets.
八. Freshly bought books, and indulgent afternoons wiled away under a blanket reading them.
九. Making some real progress at Barre and feeling all the more strong for it. 256 plié squats though. Madness.
十. Being picked up by my Papa and my Milo after work. Such a treat!
What’re some of your petite joys, lately?
