Here are my 10 simple pleasures. I'm not passing it on to anyone so if you're interested to give your own take on this meme, just leave a comment in this entry so I can read YOUR simple pleasures.
1. My Shoes.
As most of you know, I am a shoe-a-holic. I used to not like shopping and not like trying on clothes, but when I got married, it's as if I suddenly found the inner shoe-a-holic in me. I like shoes because even if I'm fat or I'm thin, I fit in the SAME size shoes. I also take pleasure in putting my shoes in boxes and organizing them by style. It's my life's dream to have shelves with uniform shoe boxes with polaroids of the shoebox content outside.
2. Being complimented.
However bad my day is, a simple compliment would make it 10 times better. A simple thank you, or a simple show of appreciation for something I do makes me giddy with happiness. Yeah, giddy. I may not seem like the gal to show giddiness, but believe me when I say I get giddy.
3. Chatting with friends about you-know-what.
I met a lot of wonderful people online (you know who you are). People that I have come to consider as really good friends. Just getting some time to talk to them expressing fears, sharing happiness, sharing glory and talking about girly girl stuff makes my day. I don't need to explain that thing that we share, but we have become friends.
4. Having early dinner with DA POGI.
Stress on the EARLY part. The earliest I've had dinner with my husband on a weekday is 8PM. He would of course deny it or maybe take offense that I've posted this reality on my blog, but baby, I just miss sleeping early! :)
5. Wearing skirts on Weekends.
Oh yes. Weekends are my girly girl days. I am a jeans and shirt kind of girl when I am in the office. I am cautious so as not to attract attention (read: pang-aasar) with my clothing, so when it's a weekend, that's the time I bring out the mini skirts and the long flowy skirts and the knee lenght fun colore skirt. My ex-boyfriend (read: husband) appreciates this as this is the only time he actually feels that he's married to a woman. Hehe.
6. My daily gossip fix.
Have to know what's new with the celebrities at Tinsel town. Who's seeing who and who gave birth to what? Who dropped their baby or had plastic surgery done? The Buzz!
7. Lucky Magazine.
Thank you BookSale for providing me with cheap back copies of Lucky. It may be backdated by 3 months, but it's all good. Just thank you. Why would I buy at National the latest copy for Php400 if I can wait for 3 months and buy it at Booksale for Php65? Besides, we are not as fashion forward as a country as we'd like to think. HAHA.
8. Iced Venti Low-Fat Vanilla Latte.
Especially if you have the Starbucks coupon to save on the addition of the Vanilla flavoring. And most especially when it's on a special day and there's a coupon for buy 1 get 1 free. But of course I don't drink 2 coffee drinks. I do know my caffeine limits.
9. Home Improvements.
My husband and I recently had the pleasure of visiting our new home. We now have our own house to decorate (or maybe mess up). We seem to have listed down a lot of things that we want to see in our house. List is from here to possibly half of eternity. Sure this would mean us buying our stuff mostly from Edsa Central (di ba Mel?), but it will also mean that we can put our personal stamp of style in our house. Housewarming anyone?
10. Laughing as if there's no tomorrow.
Who wouldn't want that?
