The Happiness Tag

Earlier this week I was tagged in a YouTube video by my lovely friend Steph. For those of you that have watched her videos you will know that she is a genuinely happy person. So I was more than pleased to pass on this tag – there are only a few questions and I will tag a few of you in to share the love!

Questions:
1. What food makes you happy?

This is hard, I love ALL food! If I could pick 1 thing it would probably be sweeties. I would prefer a big bag of Haribo over a bar of chocolate any day!

Soooo Yummy!!!

Soooo Yummy!!!

 

2. What movie makes you happy?

Hmmm a happy movie….Up. I love it it just makes me feel good! The movie that has the most memories for me though is either Spiceworld OR The Sound Of Music. The Spice Girls were a massive part of my childhood and I love how cheesy the movie is, The Sound Of Music is an all time classic and I love it!

3. What song makes you happy?

This is hard. The one song I will put on in the car and really ruin with my singing is Dominio by Jessie J. I get my groove on and end up with a smile on my face! There are 2 other songs, one is Mr Blue Sky by ELO abd the other is called Echo Beach, it’s so old, but it reminds me of summer holidays to Devon. My dad used to make tapes for our trips and they would always be on there and we all sing along!

4. What item of clothing makes you happy?

Strange question….Ok it doesn’t make me fell happy, it makes me feel confident and that is my Black Jeans. They pull me in at the right places and go with pretty much everything.

5. What’s you happiest memory?

Wow! That’s difficult! I have A LOT of happy memories from throughout my mere 26 (ok almost 27 years!). 2 that spring to mind straight away was my holiday last year as a family to my godparents, I remember being sat on top of the roc just looking out on lower manhatten and feeling really content, I had the same feeling sat on my godparents porch just a few days later. The other one is with Matt, it’s a really silly one but we were in Weymouth visiting his grandparents and I had way too much drink the night before and was really feeling sorry for myself and said something like ‘no one cares, nobody loves me’ (i think when I called my mum she showed no sympathy) and he turned round and said ‘well I love you.’

6. What beauty product makes you happy?

This is easy! I have only just started using this product it’s a shampoo  (that still counts?) by Milkshake. It’s purple and after 6 weeks of having my hair coloured it still looks as great as it did when I first had it coloured.

7. What do you do to make yourself feel happier when your down?

I tend to just keep myself to myself when im not feeling great. I also look for holidays online or I might watch funny you tube videos.

Here is one of my favourites….

 

8. List 3 random things that make you happy…

Seeing people I care about happy
Sunflowers
Shopping

I will a few lovely people that I follow on Instagram to share their Happiness with everyone too! Here is the original video by Steph….

 

Review Of 2014

Wow, I can’t believe we are already in 2015! 2014 went super quick and soo much happened. I went a week without technology, had & threw up afternoon tea at The Ritz, saw a fashion show at London Fashion Week, Milked A Cow, went on a road trip to Ohio, went to a Rodeo in Ohio (in a maxi dress!), had a photo shoot with my mum, went on a spa weekend with Hayley and finally made my own Christmas cards!

As well as all of that I had 2 holidays, brought a new car, broke my foot, went to the grand national, reunited with old friends, lost new friends and caught lightening bugs in America. To say it has been a quiet year would be a bit of an understatement. However, for some reason whenever anyone says to me “oh what have you been up to?” I never seem have much to report back, which in actual fact is a LIE!

I cant really say what my favourite thing of 2014 was as I have a lot of happy memories and ones that I will treasure forever. There have been some sad times as well, Matt & I know people that have ended relationships, lost family members and experienced a lot of sadness this year.

I am really excited to see what 2015 has in store for me, I know that one thing is for sure I am fly to VEGAS in April! I cannot wait, I am sooo excited! I have also started number 24 – its a bit hard to find something to take a picture of everyday, but I am excited to look back on them in a years time! There are 2 more things that I would like to cross of this year, but I am going to keep them for myself and surprise you all when I announce them! People often ask each other, what New Year’s resolutions they are making; I cant help but feel that you are setting yourself up for failure, especially if they are diet or fitness related. I have made 3 resolutions for this year, but these are things I started doing at the beginning of December:

Be Kinder To Myself – dont put too much pressure on myself to hit certain goals, just enjoy life

Make More Effort With Those That Make The Effort With Me – I am not great at texting people back or calling people, but I am concious that I dont want to lose friendships that I have, so I am going to make the effort more, especially with those that always make an effort to reach out to me.

Save At Least 12k By The End Of The Year – I already have about a 3rd of this saved, so its a reasonable goal, but one that I want to achieve to get my own home!

Have you made any resolutions for the new year? what were your favourite things of 2014?

That Magical Season

Its almost upon us, Sky have their Christmas Movie channel on and there is Christmas music being played on the music channels, the shops have Christmas cards, wrapping paper and BHS has those classic “gifts” that are out EVERY year and boots have their 3 for 2 offer on their “gifts” too. Its official, that magical season is almost upon us!

We are just over 1/2 way through November and I can honestly say I haven’t yet given in and started watching Christmas movies BUT I have started Christmas shopping, however, I think next week will be the week when the I make that change! I have borrowed the Nativity movies from my friend Hayley and they are going to be top on my list next week, we are also heading upto London to visit Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park and what a better way to start the Christmas season.

Myself and Steph have also scheduled a Christmas “date” to get a red cup hot chocolate from Starbucks and have a look around the garden centres as they are always dressed lovely and we can get some cute decorations and last minute gift ideas.

I really love Christmas and everything that comes with it, so to share the joy, I am going to do a Christmas blog every Thursday in the run up to Christmas, hopefully share some tips, ideas and laughs!

So sit back, make a hot chocolate, put on a Christmas movie and enjoy those dark winter evenings!

Much Love xxxx
