A 5'3 Perspective

A New Take on Fabulous Finds Friday


This week I am taking a step away from my fabulous finds Friday, although this post may still offer some great weekend ideas.

I have always found great pleasure in pleasing and pampering others – but I often forget that I need to do the same for myself. So here is what I have decided – once a month I am going to make a to do list of five items that I want to make part of my weekly routine. Ideally, after committing to the five ideas for a month, I will have formed a habit and I can create a new items to add to my list.


1. Treat myself to real flowers. I love the way they brighten my apartment and my day!

2. Buy a bottle of wine instead of drinking only homemade – live a little!

3. Be more observant. But how? I plan to take more pictures and bring my notebook with me all the time. I feel like this will help foster my creativity.

4. Pamper myself. This week I bought a new Champagne Rose Scented Candle and spent a few hour snacking on carrots and hummus while immerse in British Vogue. It was such a nice treat and I felt so relaxed and ready to take on the world after.

5. Perform at least one random act of kindness. This is something I always think about but very rarely actually follow through with. I’ll have to put some serious thought into accomplishing this weekly task.

Item #4 - complete.

Item #4 – complete.

Feel free to join me in my quest to achieve a more fabulous life. And with that – I wish you a great weekend!
