10 Things That Make Me Happy

Happiness is so multifaceted and I'm sure that no two of us will have the same ideas of what happiness encompasses. For me it involves so many things, one that I feel at peace and at ease in whatever environment or situation I find myself. As I mentioned last week, I've started keeping a gratitude journal. Today I thought I'd share some of the things I've written down from the last couple of weeks that evoked happiness for me, no matter how big or small they were..

1. Watching Stephen Hawking interviews on YouTube.

2. Blog inspiration striking whilst I'm lost in random thought, i.e. daydreaming. 

3. Reading books in bed.

4. Listening to Florence and the Machine. 

5. Walks in the sunshine. *This has been repeated a few times.

6. Playing Cards Against Humanity.

7. Watching Boyhood and feeling inspired. 

8. Listening to Disney music.

9. Raspberry body butter.

10. Late morning showers. 

*What makes you happy?


  1. Florence and the Machine definitely has the same effect on me!

  3. Love this :) I like getting ready with plenty of time to spare in the morning & a long bath and a book. x

  5. Aww thanks Emma. I love those things as well-especially long lie ins. x

  6. Damn, based on this list I think we would really get along well! Not just because of similar tastes in things, but because I also make lists of things that make me happy every week. :)

  7. Oh really? That's awesome! Do you post your links on your blog? x
