Here’s the thing, not every purchase needs to be essential, especially if they are little things that bring joy. Sometimes we buy things because we need a pick-me-up or a little smile. Perhaps a small frivolous purchase fills that desire in our souls for something new and pretty! Life is hard enough; that’s why simple joys should be obtained on occasion. If you agree, scroll to discover five small-but-mighty joys to add to your cart this week. If you don’t agree, scroll to become a convert.
As soon as you read that, did you immediately enter into a state of zen? There is no problem too big that a great smelling candle can’t fix – or at least that’s how it can feel. Do you need a candle? Probably not, but putting extra effort into ambiance can make your home feel like more of a welcoming and enjoyable place. As any candle connoisseur knows, candles range in price, so you can go as luxe or budget-friendly as you’d prefer.

- A Luxurious PJ Set
With the focus being on luxe, this purchase is a big splurge. On any given night, Hanes sweatpants and an old college T-shirt work, but if you really want to get yourself something to boost your mood, look into a silky soft pajama set. Nothing says self-care quite like slipping into an oh-so-bougie sleepwear set. While the price tag can be daunting, luxury sleepwear makes you look and feel like a queen. Discover premium brands on Instagram, like the one listed below, that features quality and durability. Personally, I love that Lunya silk is washable, so the upkeep is easy.

- A New Planner
Nothing (and I mean nothing) turns my day around like opening up a fresh planner. It’s like getting a restart on life. While this may read as a bit dramatic, try it for yourself. Side effects include staying organized, feeling optimistic, and brightening your mood. Using a planner gives you the space to list things you’re looking forward to, like upcoming events, activities, or goals. Additionally, if you used it as a to-do list of sorts, the satisfaction of crossing things off a to-do list is one of life’s greatest simple joys.

Plants have become a true staple in the household. Not only do they add life to every room, but there’s a certain thrill associated with getting a new plant, finding it the perfect spot, and playing the high-stakes game of keeping them alive. Home doesn’t need a plant, but every home is better with one.
If you live in NY, I recommend stopping by The Sill. If not, no worries; you can shop their selection of plants online. (click here)

That’s it. That’s the recommendation – and, go!
