Being Fairy Fabulous: Sprout Some Wings

I'm one of those people who likes the little things in life; the finer things, if you will. Small things can make me really, really happy. Part of the reason why I named this blog Feeling Faerie Fabulous is because I think it's really important to feel good - about yourself, about your life, about how things are going, and so on. Those little things really tie it all together. Finding inner peace, a mindful mentality, strength, and the journey of self-discovery in general can take a long time, but there're some things that can make the journey a little more fabulous. Now, I'm not saying material things will bring you inner-happiness, but there are some simple luxuries that can make life more magical, if you will. Let's begin~

1. Slippers~

If you're still walking around your house bare-footed with chilly toes, then it is time to invest in somewhere for them to hang out - somewhere that makes both of you happy, ideally. There's something about having the right pair of slippers that can really define you. Further, slippers always make great gifts.

I've got some sequin'd slippers and super soft starry slippers, 'cause I shine bright and I'm a super star ;)

2. Bubbles

Aside from the wonders of mother earth, bubbles are basically the most magical things ever. Not only are they super shiny and colourful, but they seem to make everyone happy. Want to bring smiles to strangers' faces? Blow some of this fairy dust their way. This is Lynda tested & approved.

I've got myself a few variations of bubbles, as seen above. The green ice cream bubbles smell like mint (so awesome), the butterfly bubbles sit at my sewing machine desk for when I need a break from that madness, and the little bubble container is wonderfully & conveniently portable. And now...

 This is my bubble gun. It's likely to be the best ten dollars I ever spent. Not only does it spew so many bubbles that an army of kids couldn't pop 'em all, but it flashes an array of colours AND DID I MENTION IT SINGS 'Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom' by the Venga Boys? 'Nough said.

3. Fairy Treasure~
Whether you're into earrings, body jewelry, rings, or necklaces (like me), you can (almost) never have too many pieces of jewelry that inspire you. Of course, it doesn't have to be expensive jewelry, 'cause then you'd worry about it all the time, but I find that my favourite necklaces are as precious as diamonds to me.

All of my necklaces have stories and meaning to me. One of my favourites is my harmony ball (long necklace, blue, third pin from the left), which was given to me by my boyfriend's mum. If you're familiar with harmony balls, you know they chime similarly to a bell, but much gentler and even more beautiful. The beautiful sound they make is wonderful for when you experience stress or anxiousness, however it makes me happy all day long.

Another favourite of mine is my dandelion puff (long necklace, brown cord, second pin from the right). My boyfriend made this one by hand for me. It's a clear globe with a cork in it, containing several dandelion seeds. The idea is that wherever I go, I'll always have wishes with me. He's the sweetest guy ever. I'm super lucky! Sorry for the mush-factor. Also sorry to Jasper for potentially embarrassing you by bragging about how awesome you are.

Alright, so that's the end of my post for today! I hope that someone finds enlightenment in it, somewhere. Since I'm really into the "fairy" aesthetic value of things, I'm liable to post about more things that make me happy, of which I also recommend to others! Thanks for your time!
