10 Things That Made Me Happy In June


Hi Ladies!
Sorry I am so late with the blog post this week. I have been really busy and feeling a little under the weather. This week I bring to you things that made me happy this past month. I can't believe it is already July and that 50% of 2014 is already over. Eeek! ''What have you done with your life?'' That question always seems to creep up on me when it gets to this time of the year. I don't think I will judge myself too harshly I think I am doing pretty well so far. Any way here is a roundup of things that made me smile. It is always good to reflect and remember the little things that bring joy to your life. You can read my previous ''Things that made me happy'' post here.




1. On the top of my list would have to be my job. I have really loved performing on a big stage again. Singing and dancing my heart out on stage always brings me so much joy. I  feel that I was born to be a performer. I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to have a career in something that I am passionate about.

2. The many perks of performing in a big show is of cause the awesome costumes and makeup that we have to wear. It is so much fun to do my makeup and go all out with the eyeshadow and glitter. The stage is the best place to play around with makeup and go a little O.T.T. Maybe I will do a Jasmine makeup tutorial on the blog. I'm still thinking about it. :-)

3. As you all I know I am a coffee freak so I have really been enjoying my hot morning brew even more on cold winter days. There is nothing like your first cup of hot coffee in the morning. I love to sit in my bed with cup and have a little 'me' time before I start getting ready for my hectic day.

4. One of my university friends had a birthday party so it was so lovely to have a get together with my university gang again. I haven't seen them for more than a year, so being in their company was so wonderful and refreshing. When we get together there is always a whole bunch of craziness going on. We forget that we are almost reaching for the 30 year old mark, and go back to the times when we were 19, young and free.

5. You know when you haven't eaten something for a very long time and when you finally do it feels like heaven in your mouth? I had that experience when I went out to dinner in Longstreet and had a massive oven baked pizza. I can't even remember the last time I had a pizza but the night I ended my pizza hunger strike I was in food bliss. That made me extremely happy, people!

6. On that note, I totally forgot how beautiful Cape Town is at night. I am mostly out during the day and appreciate my beautiful city in all its glory when the sun is shining high. What made me smile even more was remembering the hidden beauty that a city holds at night. The buildings and streets have more character. When the moon shines over Cape Town harbour or on the beach there is just so much beauty. It makes me happy to live in this city.

7. Back to superficial things... (LOL). Winter beauty sales are always so much fun. I bought so many new nail polishes and nail art goodies to experiment with. My nails have been looking pretty awesome this past month. Nail polish is one of those little things that bring so much happiness to my life.

8. Perfume has a unique way of uplifting your mood and making you feel more confident and beautiful. My gorgeous friend Sarah from Canada sent me the Prada Candy L'eau perfume and I have been wearing it every day all day. That scent just screams 'Desle!' I love it so much. It definitely puts a smile on my dial.

9. How can I forget chocolate?! Have you ladies tried the decadent Lindt White Chocolate with a touch of Vanilla? One word: Damn!!!

10. All you lovely Divas who read my posts and interact with me on a daily basis on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or in the comments below make me happy. Thank you for your continuous support on my blog. Kisses! Xxx


Have a lovely week Divas!!!
Xoxo

Aw, I secretly love your costumes as well, you really do look like a real princess. Imagine if that was reality, bow down to the beauty. The year is moving quite fast, it is scary yet exciting. Wow you are nearly 30, I thought you were 25 (eep) these young faces are sure misleading.

This is an awesome list Desle! I completely agree with you about Cape Town, I often remember the touristy things that make it beautiful and then I'm reminded that it's actually the simplest things that make this city so beautiful.. you should definitely do the Jasmine tutorial :)
