10 Things To Be Happy About

1. January is over

Thanks God January is over. It's a month where my anxiety sky rockets, I eat a shit ton of food and I just want to fall into a deep sleep (for a week). February is the month of new years resolutions - who's with me?

2. Cacti

My cacti family is growing by the day and it has to be said, they're pretty great. They make such a great addition to my room and they are always there to add a little something extra to my blog photos - so shout out to my catci fam!

3. Photographs

Photographs are pretty special. Collecting photos definitely makes me happy and storing them in pretty ways is always a fun little project!

4. Music in bed

Music in bed is one of my favourite things at the moment, and also in the morning when I'm getting ready for the day. Tom Rosenthal is my obsession right now, so chilled and his lyrics are so so good - give them a listen, you will love him!

5. Lush baths

Nothing beats a Lush bath bomb, soap, scrub, face mask - I could go on... all of your stresses soon disappear into a rainbow of colour and shimmery goodness.

6. A good book

I'm finally back into reading. I bought myself Girl Boss - late to the party, I know! But it's seriously inspirational, and man why can't I be Sophia Amoruso? What a woman. P.S. Try this with a Lush bath - works wonders.

7. The cold

Sometimes it can be so sad to get up in the cold, but once you're up and breathe that fresh air into your lungs - you soon feel alive again, as long as it's not too cold, come on...

8. Flavoured coffee

Damn. Flavoured coffee, you are my favourite. Whether it's a vanilla latte from Starbucks or Beanies Double Chocolate instant coffee, I'm all for it. And it makes me super happy.

9. Cream eggs

Cream eggs are back, that is all.

10. Visiting friends

While you read this I will be on my way back from Newcastle. I'm going to visit my friend and also going to explore Edinburgh, so keep your eyes peeled for a travel post very soon.

Let me know what's making you happy right now!

    Lush baths are so good, just sometimes I don't have the time for it...

  10. Thank you for posting this! I've been having a super stressful January, and this post reminded me that there is so much to be thankful and happy for. I love Girl Boss! She's too awesome for this world. And I'll definitely have to check Rom Rosenthal out!

  11. Yes I'm right there with you! I always find January a little overwhelming because I feel like you can't escape everyone talking about their resolutions etc. Bring on Feb though, it's like the better version of January.


  12. yes you are so right about January being over! I live in chicago and although we have had a pretty warm winter, February means just a month and a half until spring! and my birthday =o)


  13. I am so glad that January is over too! I feel like it's been the longest month ever! And also, I've meant to read Girl Boss for a while, it sounds like such an inspirational book!

  21. Nice Post! I have a cactus as well and its name is Spike, I don't know have I accidentally killed it though *whoops*

  22. Succulents always look so pretty! :) I wonder if there is a Cream Egg flavoured coffee...

  23. I'm so happy that January is over too!! And this month is almost over, which means...Sprrring!


  24. There is nothing better than a good book & a good Spotify playlist. Visiting friends & exploring makes me really happy too, I love seeing new places. Other things that make me happy are playing the guitar, drinking tea (oh, and flavoured coffee!), eating out and watching children movies. :) xx
