life's simple pleasures. ♥




in the middle of our chaotic, stressful days, there are little pleasant surprises that come our way that really make us feel nothing beats life's simple pleasures!

1. my happy food, float and fries!



i call it happy food because its a no fail pick-me-upper! amazing how driving thru for float and fries instantly makes me giddy! i usually have a coke float with the fries, but since mcdonald's has a whole new set of berry desserts, like there's a sundae and a mcflurry, i decided to try the rockin' ruby float with fries, and mmm, mmm, mmm! sooo yummy! its really the mix of the sweet and salty that i love. you should try it!



2. getting freebies!



i am an extremely proud member of the avon family, for their line called avon mix. they're really cute and trendy start up pieces for any girl starting a collection of accessories! because of the nature of my work, i asked my avon bosses if it'd be okay to ask for pieces from avon fashions, the more grown up and sophisticated line. a week after, a whole box comes in from the mail, full of accessories! i loooove avon!



3. random appreciative tweets.



oh, the power of twitter! how you can connect to people around the world and even strangers, and how they can connect to you. after a long, exhausting day of work, reading tweets that show appreciation for the person that you are or the work that you do means so, so much. just like this sweet girl mhaiissa who said she appreciates my daily stories from my ktxt.. aaw, thank you so, so much.



4. finding money in your pocket!



you open your wallet and you have just a few 20 or 50 peso bills and a bunch of receipts. there is no atm anywhere near and you're hungry. you reach into the pocket of your jeans hoping to find something.. and you do! hallelujah! hahaa, i love it when a pair of jeans comes back from the laundry and you unexpectedly find a washed up 100 peso bill folded neatly in the back pocket!



5. being greeted on the radio!



i get beyoooond kilig when i'm greeted on radio! super kilig! the other day, my friend ange and i were stuck in rush hour traffic, listening to the hilarious boys of 'boys night out'. i decided to text sam yg, one of the djs, to greet us. to ange's surprise, a few minutes later we hear, "saying what's up to ange alarcon and bianca gonzalez stuck in traffic now." yiiiiiiii! nakakatuwa talaga to be greeted on air!

what are your simple pleasures? ♥

every single one of those things i can relate to! just to share some simple pleasures of mine are: having people i don't know follow my blog, listening to one of my guilty pleasure songs (which is usually a teeny bopper song by taylor swift or the like), seeing my lomo pictures developed for the first time, getting a hug from my little cousin and watching csi supreme sunday with my boyfriend :)

kiMme said...

I love your blog posts Bianca. They're inspiring, I always feel creative after I read your posts. :)

My simple pleasure is watching movies. May it be blockbusters or indie films, watching movies just make me feel liberated. It's my way of running away from the stress of my own life for a while. :)

theappletizer said...

mine? jollibee, having lots of money, reading the Bible, praying to God, comments from my blog, blogging, reading your blog & watching SNN. you and tito boy make it a great pair for the show. i still have more pleasures, but God is the only one that makes me happy! without Him, I am nothing. and, by the way, love your blog! <3

CaseyCakes said...

i enjoyed reading this post. teaches us a lesson to be appreciative of small things that give us joy diba? not just all whining about our problems. :) hope u'd post more often bianca. :)

Jade said...

Small things like that lead to big things. For example, a short walk along the pavements in a park, then picnic with a long lost friend. Then who knows wedding bells would ring. All happy.

^^jhoeVaruna^^ said...

mabasa ko lang blogs mu te biancs before going to my class pleasure na sa akin..i relly like you!!

Joycie Cloudylove said...

Mine is sitting in front of the computer, logging on to the Internet. Then there's listening to the music while working on my plates (I'm an advertising arts student, by the way), watching UAAP basketball games, munching on fast food chains...and of course, reading blogs (including yours).

WORD UP, MISS BIANCA~

someone told me to appreciate the simple pleasures in life...and indeed, simple pleasures in life like chatting with friends while eating chips and drinking soda, and eating home- cooked meals with my family are a few of my simple pleasures...and i guess being simple is already pleasurable...:)

MeannMunoz. said...

My Simple Pleasure:

Just waking up each day and thanking God. :-)

ChinkyGirLMeL said...

The accessories from avon looks so fun! And that McDonald's float looks gooooood. My simple pleasures would be having the time to read blogs (nerd alert), savoring the taste of chocolate truffles as it slowly melts in my mouth and the greatest of all my simple pleasures would be having time to spend with my mom each and everyday. Have a wonderful week Bianca. =)

Shalum said...

Oh wow! You are the cutest! I agree on all, especially number 1. plus, when the hubby brings home something like flowers or a cupcake, out of the blue.

thanks for reminding us of these amazing simple pleasures!
