adventures, books & creative lifestyle.


  1. Bookshops, letters in the post, cuddling up to my cat, and a wardrobe bursting full of vintage clothes...all make me happy! xx

    p.s I spent all day Saturday planning my London trip and used your blog as a huge referance of places/names to visit and see. I'm only there for two days but I seem to have lots on the agenda!

  2. I agree with everything in here, all of these make me happy. Glad you've decided to be positive, I've decided I'm going to be like it too xxx

  3. all of these make me happy! but also :
    my lava lamp (its all pretty and shiny)
    cups of tea <33 (with lots of sugar, obviously ;])
    aaand catching up with ollddddd friends :) xx

  4. I got a really pretty diary/notebook for Christmas, and instead of writing what I've done that day in it (because I never manage to keep those sort of diaries up and to be honest I don't really do a lot :/) I write one thing that made me smile each day in it, it's really good to look through it when I'm feeling a bit low. I've only got a few so far, but my favourites are "laughing in the back of my friends car after seeing a really good film", "singing always look on the bright side of life whilst driving around a random village being hopelessly lost with my mate" (yeah, I really need to learn to drive myself so my friends have to stop giving me lifts everywhere...) and "texting someone a crappy joke just to cheer them up". smiles :) xx

  5. I love reading these posts you do. Definitely a mood lifter x

  6. Ahh the ambiance in book shops... I'm pretty sure that could perk up my mood no matter how rubbish I was feeling. Just the thought made me smile! Great post :)

  7. Yay - totally agree with all your points! I have started to keep a "happy diary" where instead of moaning about my day I just write down a couple of things that have made me smile that day. So glad you are having a good 2011 so far x

  8. I agree with you on every single one! I haven't been to a gig in a while though :( seeing taylor swift soon though!! XX

  9. i love when you are having a horrible day and then out of the blue you get this calm feeling & then it makes you realize that life is not that bad!! :)

    i LOVE LOVE LOVE bookstores...i could spend hours in one all day everyday!

  16. i love your H ♥ for happy...being happy is what life is all about. i am currently working on a happiness project for 2011. each month i focus on something different remembering to carry forward what i did in previous months...simple things like getting organized, remembering love, aiming higher, having fun and laughing often, making time for myself, buying a little happiness (needful things), finding my inner peace etc.

  19. Around this time of year, the "winter blues" hits me pretty hard, so along with writing and thinking about what makes me happy, I dance around to upbeat songs in my room and try to soak up as much sun as I can to make myself feel happier. it totally works! Thanks for sharing!

    xo, Jay

    - a bargain
    - a long bubble bath
    - spending time with my mum
    -having enough 'me' time in the busy working week.

  27. I love your happy posts; I think I am going to have to make my own list of things that make me happy. I spend a lot of time trying to make other people happy but sometimes, of course, that makes me happy too. Bubble baths, me time, receiving post, good times with friends and good food. Mainly home comforts really; can't beat a long bath and clean bedsheets!xxx
