Things I am Thankful for — October Blogging Challenge Day 16

Gratitude is one of my favorite themes to write about, so of course I love that it's also a part of this blogging challenge. For the first thankful Friday post in this challenge I wrote about what I am thankful for in life. For this one, I will take a shorter time— let's stick to this week!

Fall Weather

The weather is getting so good now. I am loving the sunshine without the scorching heat. Although, I miss the fall colors in the northeast. I am hoping this weekend would be nice fall weather to enjoy with warm beverages, cozy sweaters, and love.


I found this easy-to-make recipe for brownies. It's just three ingredients and it is super delicious. I have made them thrice this week, so that tells you something, right? I didn't eat all of it alone though. I just enjoyed making them; I ate just twi little pieces.

Ipsy Glam Bag

This week I got my first Ipsy glam bag in mail, and I love everything about it— the bright pink packaging, the cute golden makeup bag, the makeup minis. I love minis, because you get to try so many different samples, and they are easy to travel with. This month's bag came with a cute little golden makeup bag, a lipstick, mascara, perfume, a face scrub, and a brow pencil!

Birthday Gifts

My first birthday gift came this week. Sure, I bought it for myself, but that still counts. I am loving the new phone. I also got two dresses and a beautiful pearl necklace. My siblings already announced that I should be checking mail, so that's exciting.  Yes, I love getting gifts!


I just love my friends— they are such a huge support and they just know how to make me smile. They celebrate the small victories, and understand how much little things mean to me. Whenever I am stressed or overwhelmed, they know I just need to vent and they let me. Also, so much extra love for how they have already started making big deal about the birthday.


Being the travel-bug I am, I am so excited for the travel plans starting tonight. Where am I going? Should I tell you right now, or keep it a surprise? May be you'll know if you follow me along on Instagram. Shameless plug, I know— sorry, not sorry! 

What are you thankful for?

5 Motivational Quotes about Gratitude // Monday Motivation

It's the Thanksgiving week, and we can use a little more gratitude in our life.  So, today I am sharing few quotes about gratitude  to fill our hearts more with love and abundance and to remind us that life isn't bad at all!

“Sometimes life knocks you on your ass... get up, get up, get up!!!  Happiness is not the absence of problems, it's the ability to deal with them.”  ― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart,  it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”  ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.”  ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”  ― Maya Angelou
