Big thanks to fellow turquoise lover and all around awesome lady Autumn for letting me guest post!
Greetings! I am Eloise and I blog over in my little corner of the internet machine, Awkward Giraffe. Why Awkward Giraffe? Because I am tall and thin and people think I look graceful... and then I move. I am a super klutz. I am all arms and legs and if I can bump into it/trip over it/knock it over, I will. It's a special skill I have. Let's just say, dancing and sports are not my forte.
I also find selfies to be extremely awkward...
Moving on... I'm going to share some of my favorite things with you fine people today. Nothing big and exciting, just little everyday things that make me happy.
Red lipstick. If I'm ever feeling a bit meh, I just put on my favorite red lipstick and my mood is instantly lifted. It's basically instant glam. This comes in handy when I'm meeting friends for drinks after work and feeling a bit stale from all day at the office.
Cheese. It's my favorite. Extra sharp white cheddar, feta, Swiss, smoked Gouda, Parmesan, goat, fresh mozzarella, it doesn't matter. I want it with every meal. Bonus points if it's in liquid form. Mmm nachos...
Turquoise. I love it. I love the color and I love the stone. Some of my favorite pieces of jewelry are turquoise and I may have just ordered a couple more from Fifth & Mae. Oops!
Sassy panties. They're guaranteed to make your day better. No one else can see them, but YOU know you're wearing them.
Coffee. It makes me exponentially more productive in the mornings. I don't do the fancy Starbucks coffee very often. Just give me the free coffee at work with a little cream and sugar, and I'm a happy camper.
Antique malls. I can spend hours wandering through a good antique mall. I collect some patterns of glassware, bakeware, and pottery, and it's so fun to stumble across a piece I don't have stuffed in some dusty corner.
Tequila. In margarita form, preferably. This one is self explanatory.
Tattoos. I love to see other people's tattoos and hear the stories behind them. I have two and another planned for this weekend. I'm so excited I can't stand it!
Clean sheets. Is there anything better than slipping into a freshly made bed with crispy, clean sheets?
Ice cold Diet Coke. I am a pretty healthy eater most of the time. Lots of water, salads, etc. But if I'm hungover? You better get me a frosty Diet Coke, stat.
Blogging! It brings together such fantastic ladies from all around the world. I recently started Awkward Giraffe anonymously, and it's been so liberating to just blog without fear of judgement from people in 'real' life. I feel like it's helping me rediscover my true self, and I can't wait to see where this new blog space takes me!
So that's it! Thanks again to Autumn for being the coolest. Feel free to stalk me on Twitter, my blog, Instagram, or Bloglovin. Or not... whatever.
So please share, what's a little thing that can instantly brighten your day?
