Top 5 Tuesday: Happiness in Small Places

Hi Everyone! Its Tuesday again and I'm excited to share some little pieces of happiness for Top 5 Tuesday. Well... at least these make me happy so I'm hoping that they'll make you happy too. :)

Last week I mentioned that I wanted to purchase some lipstick. I had my eyes on the Kat Von D Painted Love lipstick set. After seeing the set in person, I changed my mind. I liked the colors, but the texture of the lipsticks were too creamy for me. So instead I ended up buying a Mac Viva Glam lipstick. The amazing thing about the Mac Viva Glam series is that "every cent raised through the purchase of VIVA GLAM goes to the M·A·C AIDS Fund to support the fight against HIV/AIDS" as stated by the website. Whoa! I can look pretty and donate to charity! That's a win/win situation! While I would have loved to purchase the limited edition Cyndi Lauper or Lady Gaga lipstick... I think its more important to find a lipstick shade that suites me best. So I got the one pictured above on the right. Its a neutral shade that goes well with most of my make-up looks. I can go with dramatic smokey eyes or casual neutrals with this lipstick shade. I have to wear the make-up, the make-up should never wear me. ha!

I find it hilarious when people dress their pets! While I love animals, you'd be surprised that I'm not one of those people who would put a costume on their pets. Its just... unnatural. Although, I am happy that other people do it because the photos are absolutely priceless! Aw... look at this cat... so... sad... or lazy. You can never tell with cats.

I am amused that this dog is unamused!

This print of Magneto with some baby ducks by Brandon Bird. Oh my gosh! Now I've seen everything! If there is evil in the world, there is good too. Just look at Magneto cradling the darling baby duck (Aww! Look at the little legs!). Life isn't all that bad. There's a soft spot in even the most hardened super villains. There's a lesson to be learned here folks.

I'm continuing the theme of 'Happiness in Small Places' with Tinierme. This is a massive multiplayer online role playing game (or MMORPG for short) where you create a miniature self. There isn't a real point to the game other than its really cute and fun. Its also a nice place to visit to when I'm on my 'breaks'. My favorite part of the site is completing the sidequests to win limited edition items to dress my character with. The outfits are out of this world! Its almost like Halloween every day. I could be dressed as an escaped prisoner while carrying a blue alligator on my back while holding a gigantic cured ham or maybe a punk rocker with butterfly wings. The outfit combinations are endless if you let your imagination wander. My friend Ariel introduced me to this site and it has quickly become a favorite! (Thank you Ariel! You changed my life! lol) :)

The last thing I would like to share is a song I heard in a movie I recently saw. Watching Steve Martin movies is a guilty pleasure of mine. I can't help it, he is delightfully corny. I love it! When I heard this song in "The Jerk" I couldn't help but smile. Its a really cute song and I have to make it a point to learn this on my ukulele!!

That's all for the today! Let's make it a good week, I have a feeling that Monday was rough for everyone. So let's move on! Chins up high and confidence at 100%! GO!
