The Little Things in Life That Make Us Smile at Blushing Confetti
It seems like every day there are a million more things we are distracted by and have to worry about. We don’t know about you, but sometimes we can get a bit lost in it all! That’s why we at Blushing Confetti think it’s important to step back every so often, smell the roses as it were, and take a moment to appreciate the little things in life that bring smiles to our faces!
It’s easy for us to get caught up in our lives (wait – the world doesn’t revolve around us!?), and perhaps lose sight of the fact that some of our everyday issues really aren’t as world ending as we make them out to be. I hate to break it to ya, but there are bigger issues out there in the world and no matter how big or small our efforts might be, we can make a difference! Giving back is something we endeavour to do here at Blushing Confetti, and our involvement with I=Change is something we’re extremely proud of! In case you didn’t already know, $1 from every purchase made on Blushing Confetti is donated to a charity of your choice. Yep – your choice! You get to decide which charity you want to support from your order, and can direct change according to what you’re most passionate about.
Sunrises and Sunsets
There is something so rewarding about waking up early and starting the day bathing in the magnificence of a good sunrise. It’s extra rewarding if you’re taking in the view after hiking up a mountain – but we won’t get ahead of ourselves. Getting up early and watching the sun rise also makes us feel a bit more productive, and ready to seize the day! But, let’s be realistic, it’s not every day we’re up and at ‘em at 5am in the morning – you can’t blame a gal for loving a good sleep in! Good thing the sun sets too, and ending the day watching the sun go down is just as lovely as starting it with a sunrise. An afternoon picnic, with wine in hand, taking in nature’s beauty – what’s not to love?!

Personalised Handwritten Notes
In the age of texting and tweeting, it seems people have learnt to express themselves in as little words as possible, or pictures in the case of a snapchat. While a picture can speak a thousand words, nothing beats a good old-fashioned, handwritten letter or note. I mean, I know my heart is warmed when I get a handwritten note in an online order – from a stranger! Even if it’s just a quick message, the fact that they’ve taken the time and effort to write it out (rather than just copy and paste!) means a lot, and after all, it’s the thought that counts! Imagine how much it would mean to your friends and family if they received a handwritten message from you, especially on a special occasion, or even just because…! Luckily at Blushing Confetti, we’ve got all of your greeting card needs covered which, with your thoughtful message inside, are sure to brighten anyone’s day!
Reminisce on Life’s Special Moments
Life these days seems to be go go go all the time, and we’re so busy most of the time that we forget to take a moment for ourselves. Whatever happened to good old fashioned journals? While we might not be writing ‘Dear Diary…’, diaries are a great way decompress and to express your feelings and record events from the day in a personal and private way. Expressing your emotions in writing not only allows you to have a record of your experiences, but is also an effective stress reliever and helps reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. Our range of beautiful notebooks are sure to help encourage you to take time out for yourself. Of course, it’s not only the little moments that deserve to be written down, but the big ones too! Blushing Confetti has a great range of journals to record your big adventures and life events that you can look back and reminisce on later!
