Happiness is key...

There has been a lot of negativity in the blogging community the past few weeks and I had the intention of writing a post about the absolute s**tstorm the past year has been for me. After some deliberation, I've decided to write about what makes me happy and add some positivity.

My little sister

She is my absolute world. If I'm feeling down or crappy she's there to cheer me up and make me feel better. We fall out and bicker but within a few hours it's forgotten and we're best friends again. She is the funniest little thing and makes me laugh until I cry.

Days spent with family

The past two weekends have been spent with family and it has been perfect. The weekend before last was spent with family that I haven't seen for years and it was so so lovely to catch up. Easter weekend was spent with my grandparents, uncles/aunts and cousins. I am the eldest and my little sister is almost a teenager so it's so wonderful to spend time with the little ones, I love playing up with them in the garden and we had an easter egg hunt. Being able to be a big kid again is so nice! 

Louise Pentland and The SacconeJolys

My two favourite YouTubers. The only two I religiously watch. I know when they upload my day is about to get a little happier. I relate to Louise on a personal level and the SacconeJolys are literal family goals. 

My blogging girls

These ladies are the loveliest, most supportive bunch I could ask for. We have the most fabulous group chat, that frequently has me cry laughing! They remind me why I started blogging and why I am so happy to be a part of this community!                                           I'm gonna leave a link to their blogs and twitters, show them some love!

My parents

They've been married for 15 years this year and yes even I question how they have put up with each other, or me for that matter, for so long but it really gives me hope. They support and love me even if I am a massive prat sometimes. They put up with my stressy outbursts. I don't tell them enough how much I love and appreciate them.


I'm sat writing this listening to the Mamma Mia soundtrack. I love everything about musicals. If I'm feeling rubbish I will put Hairspray on or listen to the Wicked soundtrack and it makes me feel so much better. Musical Theatre is my happy place. Whether that's watching them or performing one-woman shows of them in the shower.


One of my favourite pick-me-ups is experimenting with makeup. My job entails selling a lot of makeup and I love showing off all the new products to my customers. I love it when they compliment it. A friend told me a little while ago how good my highlight looked and I was literally smiling like the Cheshire cat for the rest of the day. 


I'm a real bookworm, there's nothing quite like sticking your nose in a new book and escaping. I am currently reading Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch and it's absolutely brilliant; a definite recommendation!

A beautiful sunset

This brings me so much joy. I love taking photos of sunsets, it reminds me what a beautiful planet we live on. They're so tranquil and also the perfect reminder that tomorrow is a new day and the sun will rise again. 

Let me know in the comments what makes you happy! Much love as always!
