Lately I have fallen for a beautiful piece of furniture in a designer’s store. I could never afford it. Even after the second discount. So I kept coming back to see it, run my fingers along its top, feel the smooth finish and gasp. My friend jokingly asked me one day “Are you going to visit your furniture again?” It downed on me: indeed, I am the girl who visits beautiful things in stores without necessarily buying them.
So what? Beautiful things are making us feel good and that is the key.
Today I am indulging in some beautiful things – a quirky magazine for paper lovers, Flow, a sweet selection of black teas from Sri Lanka, sold in an equally delightful spring packaging under the Wedgwood brand, a luxury fine china company.
The liquor is sweet and strong in the same time, perfect for those early mornings, with notes of chocolate and a hint of bitterness.
Spring is in the air!
