Tag Post: 6 Things That Make Me Happy

Quick post! I was tagged by M of Cross My Heart and Kiss My Elbow (interesting name...) way back in November and Bucca of Whatever She Said, Then I'm That in February. So here goes!

This is called the "6 Things That Make Me Happy Tag." According to the rules, the things should be unimportant. Oh my. If they make me happy, then they are very important! Hence, I had trouble doing this tag. But I will try to put the silly I-can-do-without stuff that make me happy here.

Anyway, here are the rules:
  • Mention the person who tagged you
  • List 6 unimportant things that make you happy
  • Tag 6 blogs, state the rules and notify them with a teeny comment on their blog

And without further ado...

InStyle, Vanity Fair, Elle, Allure and Glamour! Especially InStyle, which I've been collecting for a number of years now. That should put this magazine in the "important" category but I want to think that it's a want not a need.

2. manicures and foot spas - I don't like massages and body scrubs but I do enjoy a good foot soak and scrub now and then. I indulge only when I have extra cash. Most of the time, I just do it myself in my little bathroom with a scented candle lit and all my lotions and potions surrounding me.

3. the pomodoro soup in Cibo - tangy tomato chunks in a rich tomato sauce. Yum. Whenever I feel exceptionally sad or happy, off to Cibo I go for this soup!

4. my red hair - I love it. I think I'm really a redhead! I think I'll be a redhead for a while. But I know myself. I do get bored with my hair color after a few months so while my passion for this red lasts, I'll keep it. I'm thinking of purple next...

5. my pillbox collection - it's modest but growing slowly and the pillboxes are so tiny and pretty, I can't help but smile whenever I see them!

6. online shopping - I buy a lot of things online because I'm lazy to go to the mall. And with the easy online payment services available today, e-shopping has never been more secure and fun to do!

I tag: Eternal Sunshine, Kaith, Uninterrupted, Belle Lumiere, Nevergirl's, Tales of the Domesticated Husband's Wife and I Am Overjoyed. These women have got to be some of the most inspiring I've ever met so I'm very curious to read the unimportant things that make them happy!


  1. I usually don't do tags but I've a soft spot for girls who aren't afraid to experiment with hair color. Yep, I said "girl" haha.

    Isn't that odd? You could swear you turned ___ and show me your birth cert to prove it. But you're still every bit a "girl" to me - half girl, half woman, one part silly, and 100% awesome... and of course, this Math is skewed. :)

  2. hahaha. thanks for the tag frances. im a very shallow person so this might be easier. i don't know. hahaha. ill do this when im back. :)

  3. hey the red hair really looks great on you. don't change it just yet :D

    i love these kinds of tags! i made a similar one when i was still pregnant. sige, may utang ako sa yong tag, i'll do this on weekend :D

  4. Chin, ya, me I'm wary of people who are too attached to their hair. Hair is literally dead things so you should be able to cut it, dye it and do whatever you want with it and nothing bad will happen to the rest of your living body. So when I meet someone who obviously cries when a scissor comes near their locks, well, they scare me. I always feel they're the sort of people who can't let go of things, who can't live and let live, who are control freaks, who... I should stay away from!

    Ya, Kaith, do it!

    Nel's Bebi, ya, I think I'll keep it for a year or two! I was all shades of brown since '06, and blond before that! I think I'll be red for a long while!

  5. Oh you should do a Pill box post and show us all your collection :)

  6. Awww. Flattered that you think I'm "inspiring"! Heehee.

  7. D-C, and I love reading your blog!

    Bucca, I just have a very few since I just started =)

    TwistedHalo, keep writing and inspiring!


Thanks for dropping by my blog! It really means a lot that you spare the time to read... and comment!
