5 Things That Are Making Me Happy Today

Does anyone else find Tuesdays to be just as hard to like as Mondays?

For me there are no good classes at the gym and nothing fun to look forward to, usually.
However, this particular Tuesday is giving me nothing but happiness...lets see why:

1. As I was going through my blog reader this morning on the train one of my favorite bloggers, Erin introduced me to a new clothing/accessories website Deloom.

While I was shopping around on said website I came across this bad boy:

A mustache scarf!! 
On top of that Erin is also offering a code for free shipping: LIY2013
 Into my cart it went...I cannot wait to wear this.

Also, Lauren picked up a glittery mustache tank for me this past weekend...I won't wear them together, but I am very happy with my ever growing mustache collection. 

2. This was outside of my building this morning when I arrived at work:

Is this real life?
In addition to that they gave out coupons for a free tall coffee AND $1 off of a bag of coffee.
The barrista made my day by telling me I had really pretty hair while handing me the free cup of vanilla blonde.

3. My lunch

Deconstructed stuffed sweet potato.
In the pyrex: A sweet potato, black beans, scallions, mango peach salsa and 1/2 an avocado.
This took 10 minutes to make from start to finish this morning.

The past few days my inbox and instagram has been full of "HELP ME WITH MEAL PREP!!" requests so I am working on a post to address just that :)
 I hope you will find it helpful!

4. The forecast:

 Here we are on January 8th and we have a high of 46 degrees here in NYC.
It may seem cold to a lot of you, but for us NYers this is warm.
I also love that this weekend will be in the 50s!

5. Pretty Little Liars 

is BACK tonight!!
This show is a my guilty pleasure but I cannot get enough of it... if you haven't watched it yet you should.
It's on Netflix...hop on a cardio machine and catch up!

Your turn:
What 5 things are making YOU happy today?


  1. I love that you have such a positive spin on a Tuesday morning. I agree, they're tough to love! I'm excited to try the Starbucks Blonde Roast... did you like it? Free coffee is da bomb though, so gotta love that!!
    The scarf is adorable. I've been eyeing the cutest mustache mug at Target... hoping my valentine gets it for me (but I don't think he got the hint). LOL
    We are also supposed to be in the 40's in WI later this week, yay!! :)
    I am happy I have the day off today & that my eggs kind of stayed in my red pepper rings this morning. Oh, & my delish maple walnut flavored coffee made me quite happy, along with your post! :)

    1. I HAVE THAT MUG!! I bought 2 :) okay the eggs sound amazing AND the coffee??? GIMME!

  2. Love pretty liars!! So glad its back. By the way has anyone every told you that you look like Bay(Vanessa Marano)from Switched at birth(also on ABC Family)? Its a compliment!!

  3. Woah not fair!! Free coffee would totally make my week!!
    Have a great day girl!

  4. Free Starbucks would have made my morning too! Looking forward to the meal prep info!!

  5. I didn't know PLL started back tonight- yay! I DVR everything and never remember when they actually come on for real. :)

  6. Totally with you on the Tuesdays suck just as much as Monday's! I actually think Tuesdays are WORSE. At least with Monday's you feel like you're getting a "fresh" start to the week & are (hopefully) relaxed/rested from the weekend. Also, no one is hyper/annoying at work, so you can actually get stuff done! HOWEVER, sounds like your Tuesday was just fab! I love days like that! :)

  7. That mustache scarf is adorable!
    I miss Starbucks coffee. I lived on it when I was backpacking across the US. Sadly there aren't many stores in Australia.

  8. I love the scarf! Really cute. And free Starbucks? Awesome. I'm also loving your deconstructed sweet potato lunch - I'm going to try it!

  9. I'd say you had a pretty awesome day!! Yay for free Starbucks =)

  10. Fun! Free Starbucks would make me happy too! and I'm looking forward to nice weekend weather in D.C.
