What Makes YOU Happy? #2

Heyy !

Yesterday, I posted the first half of this mini series ( You can find the post here )  all about the small things in life that makes you happy but you often disregard them as silly, unimportant little things ( if you even notice them ) . I asked 8 different bloggers to tell me all about the little things in their lives that make them smile, because smiling is good :) Here's what they said :

The things that make me happy are quite simple and not really things that I appreciate normally.

Seeing my family and my little cousin running up to me, arms open wide for a cuddle.It's something really simple but I love having cuddles with her and my family. It really makes me feel like I'm part of an amazing team of people. 

A full subscription box on YouTube. Again, something very simple but I love coming home after a stressful day and finding that all of my favourite YouTube channels have uploaded something new for me to waste time watching. 

Time and a half on Sunday. Work on Sunday can be annoying but it's much better knowing that I get paid time and a half. It makes my day that little more bearable. 

Comments on my blog, This is the best part of my day. I love coming home to see that people have commented on my blog, it really makes me feel like what I write about helps people in some way. It also makes me feel more connected to other bloggers and my readers. 

Having a lush bubble bath. After a long day I love coming home to a hot bubble bath with a lush bath bomb in it. I love being surrounded by the bubbles, I pop on my face mask, put spotify on the Sam Smith Album or Adele and then just let all the worries of the day get washed away. 

Not having to go out on rainy days. Now I love the rain but I love it when I have the day off and I wake up to hear it pouring with rain. I love it even more in winter. Knowing that I don't need to go anywhere and that I can put on a series of Doctor who and snuggle back into my duvet. One of life's little pleasures.

Here is a list of things that make me smile:

1. Seeing a happy family laughing and playing together at the park or pool or other public places. 
This makes me feel all nice and happy for that lovely family. 

2. Having the sun wake you up in the morning. 
This is actually the best thing ever! 

3. Having finished everything on your daily To Do List, whether it was on a written list or mental list. 
I always write lists, just to have the satisfaction of crossing off the things you have done and gotten out of the way.

4. Being awake to see the sunrise. 
I am rarely up early enough to see the sunrise, so when I do see it, it is so much more special. 

5. Watching old home videos or looking through old photo albums and scrapbooks. 
I love reminiscing, seeing how I acted when I was a hyper four year old. It's pretty funny seeing a smaller version of you running around like a maniac! (Thanks for all the sugar, Mum and Dad.)

  • Finding a good book that you can't put down 
  • Walking on the beach at sunset/sunrise 
  • Going for a long drive
  • Being inside during a thunder storm, when the rain hits the window 
  • An unexpected hug when you need one, but didn't want to ask 
  • Forehead kisses

  4. So good!! :D I have to agree with every single one of these <3 Like I love having a full subscription box and finishing exams.

  5. This is such an amazing blog post, I love the mantra that you promote on this blog and couldn't help smiling while reading this! Something which makes me happy is getting home from work to be with my family, sipping a boiling cup of tea and looking through the window to see the evening sun sink through the sky. Reading an awesome book is up there though!!

    Much love, Victoria x

    1. Thank you so much , that's really kind of you to say :) I think it's a really important message to get out there ! Aww spending time with family is a brilliant way to stay happy and books perfect for relaxing and escaping from your troubles ! There's nothing quite like a good book :)
