20 Reasons why you should be happy!

1) You are alive!
We should be happy every morning when we wake up. It is a true blessing to have the opportunity to enjoy a new day, so live it to the fullest!

2) You have a wonderful family and good friends
This is a perfect source of happiness. Go hug your parents, your kids, your significant others and your friends and tell them how lucky you feel to have them in your life!

3) You are healthy
One of the things in life that people appreciate the most, although usually realize it when it’s too late, is their health. If you suffer from any illness, focus on thinking that a day will come when you will recover and feel good again!

4) Every day is another chance to change your life
You have the power to change the things that you are not so happy you’ve done. Perhaps you might want to break a bad habit that you have, or simply apologize to that person whom you offended.

5) Happiness comes from your own actions
Smile every day, forgive others, help the less fortunate.

6) You can love
This is a great feeling that makes everyone happy! You will experience this wonderful feeling in different ways and for many people throughout your life. Starting with your parents, grandparents, the love of your life, your kids, your pets or dream job!

7) You are capable of learning new things
Learning new things is very rewarding, so why not learn something new? You can take a cooking class, or perhaps you want to learn CPR , or a new language!

8) You are unique
It doesn’t matter whether you’re blonde or a brunette, if you are introverted or outgoing, book smart or street smart and so on. You are the only person in the world who is like you… so be proud of you are!

9) You can make a difference
You are capable of changing the world. Begin by doing small things that could mean the world to others! Such as helping people in need, visiting our grandparents who might feel ill or forgotten, having quality time with your kids, and many other good deeds that you can think of.

10) You can listen to music
When we listen to happy music, it automatically changes our mood. It either relaxes us, or makes us want to dance!

11 Someone loves you
It’s a beautiful thing to feel love for someone, but It is absolutely wonderful when they love you back! Many people will come and go in your life, but there will always be someone out there who loves you!

12) You have a roof over your head
Whether you own a home, rent or live with someone, you should be thankful that you have a roof over your head and it’s not raining on you.

13) You are able to see
Having the sense of sight is marvelous, you are capable of seeing the beauty that the world has to offer. Anyone who has lost their vision, would probably give anything to get it back. Let’s not take this for granted and appreciate all the beautiful things in life that we see everyday.

14) You can hear
Being able to hear is wonderful, from the music we love, to hearing our baby’s first words.
Imagine not being able to hear.
You would never know how your name sounds, the sound of music or trying to figure out what characters in movies are saying.

15) You can smell
We should be happy for being able to smell the many things that life has to offer; for instance, food that we eat ,fragrances we love, and the unforgettable smell of freshly cut grass.

16) You can change your perceptions
It is possible to view the bad things that happen to you as things that will make you stronger and the obstacles that come on your way as opportunities to learn. It doesn’t matter what happens to us – all that matters is our perception of what is happening.

17) You can believe
It doesn’t really matter what you believe in but remember to never stop believing because it gives us hope and satisfaction in everyday life.

18) Write a list of all your accomplishments
When you write down everything that you’ve accomplished, make sure that you place this where you can see it. This will not only make you feel better, but will encourage you to set additional goals for you to achieve.

19) You have clothes to wear
You should be thankful to have a closet-full of clothes. I know, that sometimes we say “I have nothing to wear”. Just imagine all of the homeless people that only have one outfit and they have no choice but to wear it everyday.

20) You are capable of forgiving
Yes, it is not always easy to forgive, but when you do, you have a sense of relief and feel as weight has been lifted off your shoulders.

I hope you found this post helpful, and remember…Be happy!!!

Christian Louboutin launches luxury nail polish line!

20140724-214101-78061868.jpg
According to Women’s Wear Daily,
French shoe designer, Christian Louboutin has entered the beauty industry! He has created a luxurious collection of nail polishes. However, decided to first launch his signature color Rouge Louboutin .
Priced at $50 in the US, Rouge Louboutin is described by the brand as ‘a timeless, vibrant red suited to any skin tone.’ Eight inches high, the bottle was inspired by the Ballerina Ultima shoe, the tallest heel Christian Louboutin has ever created, and features ombré-effect faceted glass and a pointed metallic cap that contains the brush.
According to WWD, the product supposedly has the highest percentage of pigment in the industry and each faceted crystal bottle takes 22 weeks to make.
This polish will be the most expensive, followed by Tom Ford ($32) and Chanel ($27).
Rouge Louboutin was the first enamel to hit the shelves of Saks Fifth Avenue and Louboutin stores around the nation this week. These sexy chic shades (Pop, Nude and Noir!) are $50 a bottle and will be sold in Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and select Sephora stores starting August 6. Christian Louboutin has decided to make his red bottom fanatics wait in anticipation for the rest of the 30 shades that will grace stores on August 31.
