How to live magically

1. Keep a daily diary
2. Always take a ride on each carousel you see
3. Stop to give coins to every violinist you hear
4. Never pass a lemonade stand without buying a glass
5. Always have a drawing book and pencil handy
6. Take tea every afternoon
7. Scribble down your dreams at dawn
8. Take yourself to the cinema
9. Give a name to all the bumblebees you spy
10. Sleep in pretty nightgowns
11. Read your favourite poetry out loud
12. Write and illustrate your fondest memory
13. Carry your favourite sweeties in your left pocket
14. Wear a locket with faerie dust inside
15. Tie your hair up in ribbons
16. Remember always to be Brave

A list I found on Tumblr a while ago, and have scribbled down in the front of my journal and daily diary. A few words to live by.

Awh I love these little posts of yours, Ellie! I'm definitely taking the title as inspiration for a list journal page of my own. The bumblebees one is the cutest. xx

I always name every little creature and animal I come across :)
I don't think I'd ever be one to take myself to the cinema though, I love company far too much!
Such a lovely little list. Missed you, Ellie xxx
