I love the word happy. It just makes you smile sometimes for no reason at all. I love the song Happy. It makes you want to get up and dance. They are many things in live that make us all happy. Some of them are tangible and some are not. Happy could be a smile from a stranger. Happy could be a nice phone call from a relative. For many women, happy is shopping. For dogs, happy is a cuddle and kiss from their owner. Many children find their happy in the summer when school is out. What is your happy? I love discovering what the term ‘happy’ is for different people.
Happy for me is being with friends and doing things we love. One thing we all love doing together is going shopping. Every few months we meet up and pick a new venue with shops and stores we haven’t visited before. Sometimes that’s hard because we usually drive to our destinations and make them day trips. We have now hit all of the towns and cities nearby several times so we are well versed in all of the shopping. We recently set out to visit a brand new shopping complex. It’s called Harbor Island Shops and it’s built out in the middle of nowhere.
It was a beautiful drive to Harbor Island Shops. It was a relaxing drive on a long stretch of road with corn fields framing each side. It only took us an hour and a half to get there. The parking was super easy. After we parked our car, we spotted a tea shop and decided to get a drink before we embarked on some serious shopping. I ordered a peach iced tea and it was delicious. Two others ordered hot tea. We also shared a few cookies between us. Outside the tea shop was a map of the shopping complex. Since we basically all have the same taste, we knew we’d visit all of the handbag and accessories stores.
PLIA Designs was the first boutique we visited. WOW is all I can say. What a beautiful store with stunning products. They specialize in accessories for women. PLIA Designs crafts amazing designer handbags. I couldn’t get over all of the beautiful leather goods. One of my friends mentioned she’d seen the brand in a VOGUE magazine article. In the middle of the boutique were new PLIA Designs iPhone cases. They were the cutest iPhone cases I’d ever laid eyes on. Seeing these made me happy! So very happy. Right then in there I fell in love with PLIA Designs designer iPhone cases.
