short story collections 
dancing unapologetically 
feeling life in my bones 
out of nowhere inspiration

bowie's music 
being kind to myself 
big plates of pasta
the promise of lighter longer days

I have been sharing things that make me happy lists for years. If you'd like to read some more, you can scroll through the archive.



  1. Ooh, I love these posts! I make these lists in my diary too, especially if I'm feeling a bit down. My ones for today are:

    1. Snuggled up on the sofa and read a bit more of Shock of the Fall. Have you read it yet?
    2. When Ry got home from work, we went to a new restaurant for dinner.
    3. I had steak and lobster and the steak was amazing!
    4. I've just edited a new weekly vlog and am waiting for it to render and will upload it later.
    5. I've had 2 peppermint teas today because they're yum :)

  2. lovely post !

  3. I love this! Today, for me, it has been...
    1. Cups of tea with friends
    2. Planning for my new job which I'm starting (hopefully!) next week
    3. My dog
    4. The sun making an appearance, however brief, and reminding me that spring is on the way.

  4. Loved this :-)

  5. I'm fairly new to your blog so haven't seen this little series of blog posts yet. I think this is a lovely idea! When I stop and think about all the little things that are good in the world, I feel so much happier A couple of my happy things? Discovering new music, cooking new foods, finding my way when I'm lost...

  6. ah this is such a lovely idea! for me, today, or rather this morning, things that have been making ma happy are;
    1. comfy pyjamas
    2. watching freaky friday
    3. writing a little of a story that has been in my head for way to long

    safah - oh, how i wander.

    The joy of a fresh notebook, it's real!

    P.S. We must buddy read another book sometime this year!

  8. dancing unapologetically as self care... it's surprising how healing this can be. got me through some pretty rough weeks!

  9. Love the pens. I like using them for my Joanna Basford coloring books! x

  10. I always love reading your lists, Bee. And not only because you include 'triangle bras' as a reason to be happy! My little list today would be:

    1. My cat woke me up for the second day in a row by pouncing on my legs full force - quite terrifying at the time, but she's a little pudding so I can't stay mad at her (I like to think she's trying to help me out so I don't sleep in for work!);
    2. My boyfriend made me a chilli tofu and mashed avocado breakfast wrap - I ate it at my desk and it made that first twenty minutes of checking my emails so much more enjoyable;
    3. I've finished categorising my company's full list of marketing expenses from 2015 and I happily sent it off to my CEO this afternoon! That is such a boring happy reason, I know.
