50 Things That Make Me Happy

I first saw this post over on Vicki's blog Let's Talk Beauty and thought it was such a lovely, personal post to read - so positive and inspiring. I'm definitely a person that tends to look at the glass half empty, so this was the perfect challenge for me!

1. The people I love - my husband, my family, my friends

2. My dog Daisy - she is my baby! 

3. The sea - there's something so magical and peaceful about being by the sea

4. A good cup of tea 

5. Blog comments - every single one I receive is still such a big thing to me

6. Candles - there's rarely a day that goes by that I don't burn one!

7. Makeup and skincare - obviously

8. Photographs - one of the best ways to capture a memory

9. Watching trashy TV - Geordie Shore, TOWIE, that kind of thing!

10. A night in with my husband, snuggling up and watching a film

11. Walks in the countryside

12. Giving a gift and seeing the person's (hopefully happy) response

13. Snow days

14. Good food - currently obsessed with olives, which I previously hated!

15. Crossing items off of my to do list

16. Writing / blogging

17. Going to watch live music and comedy (seeing Foo Fighers in June - eek!)

18. Clear skin

19. When my husband does chores without me having to ask!!

20. Sleep - I either go to bed too late or I just can't sleep, either way I don't get enough and so when I do it's AMAZING

21. Finding a bargain

22. Sunshine

23. Jo Malone Wild Bluebell Cologne - it reminds me of my wedding day

24. A relaxing bubble bath

25. Getting lost in a good book, especially a trilogy - just starting The Maze Runner

26. Bank holidays - you can't beat a 3 day weekend!

27. Holidays in general

28. Watching people close to me getting married 

29. Children's films - they never fail! Shrek, Despicable Me, Robots - love 'em!

30. Flowers - such as the beautiful ones my husband bought me in this photo

31. Roast dinner on a Sunday

32. Oreos

33. Days where I don't need to wake up to an alarm and can turn it off the night before

34. New clothes - I don't buy them that often as makeup and skincare normally comes first! 

35. Citrus scents - especially in the morning 

36. A girls night out laughing, chatting and dancing

37. Listening to my favourite songs

38. An unexpected compliment

39. A cwtch - plus it's one of my favourite words!

40. My husband doing so well with his own business

41. A summer BBQ with a glass of Pimms

42. The festive season

43. Pushing myself out of my comfort zone - and it paying off

44. An beautiful view

45. The postman arriving with parcels (#paydaytreats #feelingspendy)

46. That getting-into-bed-with-clean-sheets feeling

47. A tidy house

48. Those three little words

49. A good hair and makeup day

50. It's cheesy - but seeing other people happy
