Hello to the blue sky, the dazzling sun, the just-about-right temperature and all the spring vibes that fill the whole city.  These all pretty much sum up into one simple line - dolce vita - it’s such a sweet life. Buildings look so much more lively and colourful, and people too, switching up to a more summery style.  Colours, denim, lightweight sheer tops, I see life in people. I see energy, sweetness, hopes and - yay! - fun! I was talking to a relatively senior man, who you’d assume is not fun - and he said this (exact same line), “I have been excited to wake up every day to a new day.”  And I said “It’s quite uncommon to hear this nowadays”. But I mean that’s how life should be, waking up every day with hopes and fun looking forward to a brand new experience.

Fun is essential in life.  Keep experiencing something new and fun is even more important.  That’s how you drive yourself forward in a ferrari / mini cooper of your choice to some new destinations.  Fun is essential, just like ruffles. Ruffles are fun. They are flowy, bouncy, energetic. Scroll down for 3 ruffly ruffly looks for a brand new experience:

#1  Ruffly Ice Cream

If you hesitate for one second if you should buy ice cream, just go for it.  I am not promoting an ice cream a day, but there’s nothing wrong with an ice cream a week.  Who doesn’t enjoy the sugar rush through your tongue to your blood and mind until it’s fused into you together with happiness.  That, I think, is why ice creams are invented. Give it a go, just one cheat day.

 #2  Ruffly Flowers

Some say give a girl flowers and she will give you her heart.  I think, mm, I just did. Wear a fun ruffle dress for a fun date for the fun boy who just said “You look cute today.”  Yeh, there he got your heart.

 #3  Ruffly Rainbow Corner

You might wake up in the same city, but not so when you start to explore around it.  Walk rather than taxi all the time to alleys or corners you never know exist because you are always in a rush.  Slow down and explore colours swallowed by the grey concrete city.

 Yes you wake up in the same bed at 7am, to the same work, with the same people.  You have no choice for that. But you can choose a new outfit, try out the new strawberry frappe, start a new workout routine.  Now this is up to you - own it. I mean, hey, the ruffly the better.

 Stay fun xx
