My friend Kate and I have a concept we call 'joy snacks'. A stream of tiny happy things, evenly spaced throughout the day, will keep your happiness levels topped up to acceptably giddy levels. Sure, you can still save up for the bigger stuff that will make you and your home even more beautiful, but keep an eye on the small things that will give you a pick-me-up throughout the day. They're the inexpensive pretty trinkets that make your life less plain and more fabulous.
These fuzzy cat rings from TemporalFlux on Etsy are certainly joy snacks. These velvety-soft cats sit on adjustable rings, and come in various poses in black, grey and ginger.
AND they're only £3.23 each. Being a London ponce, I have spent more than that on coffee. Check out TemporalFlux's other rings if you're not into cats, they're all similarly priced. A caramel moccachino that will keep me going for half an hour versus a deliciously silly piece of jewellery that will make me smile every time I see it? No contest.
