    What brightens my day is anything positive what happens in relation to my doggie, family, my son who lives not with me or simply sunshine or lovely pefume. Thanks for entering me - Alica - alica@cleis.net

  2. What brightens my day? My kids cheer me up considerably, though there are days when I need a break, even from them. In those situations, either quiet and alone-itude will brighten things up. Once I've found my center, or when quiet alone time is impossible, usually my "favorites" playlist does the trick. If not, there's always a sleeping pill and a dark room. ;)

    A good joke. A cup of coffee. A beautiful scent. A smile. A kind gesture. A flirtation. Some unexpected sunshine. Sitting in the woods with our dog. Happy children.

  5. It's rainy and gray in Boston this morning, but I lingered over my perfume choices a bit longer than usual this morning trying to find the perfect scent for such a day. Today I chose Coromandel, with its huge patchouli note, and it was just the thing I needed to make today brighter!

    Unexpected communication from someone I haven't spoken with in a long time brightens my day... or when my 4 year-old twin nephews hug me just "because"... or when I get a whiff of something great smelling... I think the unexpected, unrequested things always give me a shot in the arm - just like sunshine.

  8. Seeing that our newly adopted dog getting along famously with our other dog. Watching the chickens in the backyard. Reading blog posts.

    These sound lovely...

    Nothing brightens my day like coming downstairs to discover my significant other has already made my morning cup of tea for me. It's really the little gestures... :)

  11. I already got to try Antonia thanks to PST, but would love to try the other two as well! I'm in Boston too and this day indeed needs some brightening. Which reminds me I haven't sprayed any perfume yet! But the tuberose stems I bought the other day are still wafting.

    Sound of children's laughter as they play, great first cup of coffee in the morning, husband bringing home donuts first thing in the morning.

    Spraying The Different Company Osmanthus in a sunday morning is really uplifting, I love that and on monday morning my husband making breakfast for me.

  15. My boyfriend's smile, my parents' hugs, seeing my parakeets (budgerigars) kissing each other and my zebra finchers playing on their swings, knowing interesting and nice new people, receiving a parcel I've been waiting, wearing the perfect scent in the right moment... all these things brighten my day.

  17. What brightens my day is a kiss from my toddler and the smell of my coffee brewing!

  18. Many things can brighten a day for me: Teaching, when it goes well; the excitement my dog Jelly Bean displays when I get home; the smell of my wife's perfume; the smell of my wife sans perfume; a great bottle of wine; a quote that makes me smile.

    My wonderful friends make my every day bright. Yesterday I had the pleasure to sit down to a laid breakfast table and enjoy freshly brewed tea. They had even taken my medicine pills and put them beside my plate. The dosage was way wrong, but still it brought out a smile.

    Lots of things - in the last few days it has been the sun shining, the beautiful scent of Daphne 'Jacqueline Postill' wafting on the air in the garden, snowdrops and the promise of Spring.

  21. Today is my birthday, and yes, it has always been a challenge to brighten it up at this gray time of year.

    What brightens my day is the knowledge that spring is only a few days away (counting it as beginning the first of March...much more accurate for my area, and more psychologically satisfying...). Taking a walk outside and seeing the bulb flower foliage popping up through the moist soil, breathing in that bright and bitter early spring smell, tinged with the chill of late winter....

    And wearing the sadly underrated By Kilian Prelude to Love. How are others not smelling that smooth, yet raspy, iris, by turns chilly and warm, brightened by a juicy and sweet citrus melange? It so perfectly expresses spring's hesitant exuberance. Love, love, love it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Your post has brightened my day! I've been wanting to try these, they get great reviews from everyone. My silly, sweet dog also cheers me up.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The pleasure of being able to 'think' about what brightens my day - and then to be able to articulate it. I just spent a little bit of time at my dad's nursing home and, once again, it has engendered a gratitude for my mental and physical health.

    Other than that, the ability to enjoy my life - my dogs, the return of the cardinals...the wonderful, little things!

    The local yoga studios offered a 28 day challenge-all the youga you can stand, at all the locations, for $50. These studios are small and each is independantly owed, so it's a considerable scrifice on their part to get we Canadians off the couch! I feel like I have re awakened long dormant mucscles, and I feel a bit more calm than usual.

    Will you please enter me in the draw?

    Thank you, and have a good weekend,

  25. No alarm clock, followed by a full breakfast of eggs, mushrooms, and dry-cured fat bacon. A cup of extra strong Guatemalan magarogype coffee, the papers and a walk with the dog. The perfect start to the day!

    ReplyDelete
  26. The things that make my dismal days brighter...a shout from my son. "You're the most beautiful mommy in the world!". Seeing - and feeling! - sunlight warm my face for the first time since September. Laughing with my best (male) friend over a latte - and laughing later on my own at the memory! Writing something that turned out better than I hoped for - on the fourth try. Being asked "What perfume are you wearing?" And being able to say: "The one that makes me happy - this day, this moment, this beautiful instant in time!"

  28. I live in the Great Lakes region of the US & in the winter it's overcast for sometimes weeks. Any time I see the sun, my day is brightened both literally and spiritually! On a daily basis, no matter what the weather brings, listening to music is a source of joy, always.

  29. My husband and I have been taking more time to spend together, and just enjoy one another's company without doing something like watching TV, or working on chores or projects. We've been talking, laughing, playing games, and just enjoying our romance. Sometimes it's hard to find time, but it's been so worth it - we're both a lot happier, and enjoying one another more.

  30. Kindness, puppies, good weather, and getting to play with my perfumes

    I like to compliment someone every day..often strangers...for unexpected reasons or just for doing thankless tasks. Their surprised smiles makes me feel happy. I know how happy I am when I get the (rare!) unexpected compliment or acknowledgement. Let me add, this habit embarrasses my kids terribly! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    What brightens my day is knowing that there is so much joy to be had if you are open to finding it. Right now I am enjoying a great cup of tea in a warm house. I am watching my kitten play with his older brother's tail. Life is good.

  43. Having my mind changed about something, which is really the ability to see something new. That always makes me feel more a part of the world.

  44. The pure joy in my dog's eyes while she is frolicking in the snow.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Any unexpected happy event, no matter how small, can brighten my day considerably. Especially those that involve family and friends. Fragrance-related? Opening a package containing a vintage perfume and finding that it is perfect. Top-notes basically intact and loaded with all types of now-banned aromachemicals! That brings a smile to may face just thinking about it.

    The two things that are certain to brighten my day are Jim, who after almost a quarter of a century still makes me smile whenever I see him or think about him, and of course whatever fragrance I choose to wear for the day. It doesn't take much.

  64. Watching the cardinals at the bird feeder brightens my day--they don't seem to care about the new 5 inches of snow! Seeing the look on my husband's face when he comes downstairs to the kitchen to find that I have made a big pot of coffee and some date & oatmeal scones.
