50 Things That Make Me Happy

It’s so easy to dwell on all the things that are wrong with our lives when in reality the majority of us are really blessed. So today I really want to do the  50 Things That Make Me Happy tag, to celebrate all the little things that bring me joy - it’s harder than you think!

  1. Oreo milkshakes
  2. Animated movies like Up and Despicable Me
  3. Anything pastel pink, lilac or mint
  4. Cute stationery
  5. Spending time reading The Bible and learning about God
  6. My Nana's cooking & comfort food (a bit too much)
  7. Disney Tsum Tsums
  8. Watching lifestyle vlogs especially Noodlerella, Jayla Koriyan and Marie Bits and Clips
  9. Lie ins and knowing I don't have to set an alarm for the next day
  10. Cheesy pop songs (I'm a sucker for Carly Rae Jepsen, Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift)
  11. Finding a TV Show I love. My current faves are: The Mindy Project, Pretty Little Liars, The Great British Bake Off & Some Girls
  12. Anything that involves arts & crafts, I love getting the chance to be creative.
  13. Discovering cute, quirky shops and cafes like Make & The Craft Kitchen
  14. New makeup and clothes and just shopping in general - definitely a bit of a shopaholic!
  15. Daydreaming and getting lost in my own imagination
  16. Beautifully illustrated books and book covers
  17. Seeing all the pastel colored houses and Fiat 500s on my way to work
  18. Getting better grades than I expected at uni
  19. When people hug me like they really mean it
  20. When my nails are painted (this makes me feel like I've really got my shizz together)
  21. Good hair/make up/skin/outfit days
  22. Going on little adventures and visiting new places
  23. When it's sunny but breezy at the same time. I love the first day of Spring when it's warm enough to go out without a jacket on - that makes me so happy!
  24. Freshly cleaned make up brushes
  25. Spending time with the people I love
  26. Autumn - everything about Autumn makes me happy! I can't wait to start wearing berry shades
  27. When customers are really friendly and appreciative (if you work in retail you know how refreshing this can be)
  28. Being productive and feeling like I've worked hard whether it be at uni, the gym, at work or with my blog
  29. Gold polka dots
  30. Quiz shows
  31. Receiving kind, encouraging and wise words from people
  32. When my drawings and blog photos turn out exactly how I want them to.
  33. I'm an introvert so I love having "alone time" to recharge. I'm at my happiest when I'm on own (or with just one other person).
  34. Meeting new people for the first time is always exciting
  35. Relaxing baths & showers - I do love a good Lush Bath Bomb
  36. Girly films
  37. Happy memories from around 2007-2010
  38. Unicorns & Pandas
  39. Coconut & vanilla scented things
  40. My baby nephews. They are the cutest things ever! My oldest nephew (who is 2) is so clever, he already knows how to read single letters and can sing entire songs, knowing all the lyrics. He's got adorable little curls like I did as a child and he makes me so happy. My youngest nephew was born in March so I'm looking forward to watching him grow and can't wait until he's old enough to play with his big brother. Aw, those two make my heart melt.
  41. When my room is neat & organised
  42. Fairytales
  43. Taking photos for my blog - it’s probably my favourite part of blogging! It's not just physically taking the photo but getting creative, and thinking of ways I can make my photos different. I like the editing process and seeing my photos transform.
  44. The lead up to Christmas
  45. Cosy nights with candles, fairy lights and lots of cuddles
  46. Waking up to cute messages
  47. Glitter
  48. Getting online shopping in the mail! It’s like a little present to yourself
  49. Knowing my sins are forgiven, that I am saved through Christ Jesus. I am so blessed to have grown up with a loving mother who taught me about God. Where would I be without it?!
  50. Getting lovely feedback and comments on blog - I'd love for you guys to leave a comment on this post!

Tell me, what makes you happy?

  1. Love these kinda posts, think I might do one myself! Great read
    Mandy x

  2. When you say you enjoy Carly Rae Jepsen...DOES THAT MEAN YOU'VE LISTENED TO HER NEW ALBUM?? (Because I'm not normally a fan of her, but my friend recently encouraged me to listen to the album, and man is it /gold/)
    But yes--shoutout to all the lovely customers that are extra nice to you! Makes it all seem worthwhile in the end, and redeems my faith in people.

    1. I've actually not listened to her new album! I liked her first one though, Curiosity was a really good song and Call Me Maybe has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. Have you seen the video for I Really Like You? Because Tom Hanks miming is one of my favourite things ever.
