Hey friends! It’s been quite a while since I’ve been on the blog – and I’m so excited to start posting regularly here again! If you know me, you know I love to talk – about anything, anytime, anywhere.
With all this corona chaos going on around, I think we all just need a few more reasons to smile, so today I wanted to share a fun post about nine things that have been making me happy lately. I pretty much talk about random things with my friends in person, so here’s a glimpse at what’s been on my mind the last few days – I hope you’re a little happier by the end of it too:)
So grab your much-needed glass of water (oh yes, no coffee over here, this is a healthy lifestyle blog;) and get ready to hear me gush about everything random imaginable! (these are in no particular order… kinda like my converstaions)
First up I chose these amazing girls that I met through Instagram! Pretty much these two incredible girls are who keep me inspired lately – Sasha’s beautiful blog is my go-to place for so much style inspiration and life tips, and Christy’s amazing jewelry store is the best place for gifts or sweet accessories for yourself. Be sure to follow these sweet gals on Instagram – you will be so inspired! Also, Sasha just shared an awesome post about staying calm in corona choas – give it a read here.
2 – These gorgeous songs
I’m literally ALWAYS listening to music, so here are my five favs from the last few days.
Paradise ( or more like the ice dance from the 2018 Olympics)
Beautiful by Ben Rector
Beauty in the Light by the Hollow Coves
Two by Sleeping At Last
3 – This article on Kate Middleton’s Style
5 – Springtime!
I spent literally all day today at the beach (picutred above) and the sunshine was gorgeous – can’t wait until the cold wind goes away and we’re into full-fledged summertime.
6 – SUMMER shopping
So looking forward to seeing the sunshine! These darling new Draper James arrivals are cuteness overload, I’ve always thought florals are so cheerful! I also found this jumpsuit – you bet I’m ordering this for the summer! I’m also looking forward to adding this number to my bathing suit collection. Ah, all the summer colors are just so exciting!
7 – The Minimalist Look
Scandinavian Style, chic monotone looks, basically Meghan Markle. I’ve been so obsessed with this look lately. I think simple is so peaceful and classic looking, definitely transitioning into more of a minimalist look for my closet and life.
8 – This Pinterest board – talk about a DREAM home!
I’m working on redoing my room right now, and this board for sure is my inspiration.
9 – Naming my blog – Lykkelig by Lauren
Oh the trials of coming up with the perfect blog name… seriously y’all, it’s close to impossible! All my friends and family tease me about the ever-changing name, but I think I’ve finally settled one this one! I’ve called it Lykkelig by Lauren. My grandparents are from Denmark, so I wanted to incorporate a bit of my history in the name. Lykkelig is Danish for lucky, happy, or joyous, and that is just what I want to share here! I’ve found that pretty much the whole blogger world is about more. Buying more, traveling more, having more, and I want this blog to be different. Here, I’ll empathize all the blessings we already have, making use of what we own, and how we can become more content with who we are and what we have been given – we truly are blessed people and I’m so excited to share more on this in the future!
Well, thanks for reading sweet friend! I’ll see you on my next post.
Alway be grateful dear – you are truly blessed!
