10 THINGS THAT HAVE MADE ME HAPPY LATELY #3

 

I have to say guys, I think this month is turning out to be one of my favourites yet. Plus it hasn’t even finished yet. But before I ramble on, lets talk about what’s made me happy lately, version number three!

#1 GETTING OUR WEDDING PHOTOS

If its been a bit quiet here on the blog, this is why. Wedding week starts on Sunday, with a post every day up until Friday and I’ve been spending most afternoons on my laptop getting it all ready for you all. I am absolutely in love with our photos and I’m so excited to see what you all think!

#2 DOING YOGA WITH YOGA WITH ADRIENE

Tuesday afternoon I headed down to London as me, my sister and brother in law booked tickets for YWA’s event at Alexander Palace. It was hands down one of the most special things I’ve ever done. Hearing 2,400 people clap Jai Namaste is something I won’t ever forget and Adriene is a massive inspiration, so seeing her in real life lead us through a yoga class was incredible.

#3 PRET VEGAN COOKIE

The closest Pret to me is in Leeds city centre, so it’s not exactly a walk away. Heading back home from London on Wednesday I made sure to bring one back for me to eat the following day, and it was a great decision. They are so yummy. Have you tried them yet?

#4 GETTING A MASSAGE

As I’m writing this, this afternoon I went for a full body massage and it was just what I needed to feel a bit more like myself again. I’ve come away feeling really restored and rejuvenated (albeit a little sleepy now!)

#5 CLEANING

Yep, I’m obsessed with Mrs Hinch. I love watching her Instagram stories and find them so entertaining, plus she’s inspired me to get the whole house nice and clean again. The other day I washed all the worktops and counters from top to bottom with soapy water, something I haven’t even done yet and we’ve been here a year! (It’s really not as bad as it sounds!!!)

#6 RE-READING THE POWER OF NOW

I love to re-read some of my favourite books as I think they truly are invaluable. I always learn something. I’ve been reading a lot in the bath lately with The Power Of Now and a highlighter, and it’s being somewhat of a haven for me. Time to myself and where I leave feeling calm, inspired and content. You must read it!

#7 SWEET POTATO FRIES

I’m not sure why but I’m having a real sweet potato moment. Drizzled in olive oil with salt and pepper, roast in the oven for 45 minutes and it’s soooooo good.

#8 THE RETURN OF STRICTLY COME DANCING

SCD is back this weekend and I cannot wait! We watch it every year as a family as get very involved, as always. I’m so excited to watch it with a takeaway and my dad tomorrow. I’m not sure who my favourite will be yet, but we’ll see!

#9 WATCHING MOVIES ON THE SOFA

I’m going through a bit of a teenage rom-com moment on Netflix. I’ve watch To All The Boys, Sienna Burgess and now I’m halfway through The Kissing Booth, which I think may be my favourite of all three so far! I’m really enjoying relaxing on the sofa and not feeling like I have to do anything when I get some spare time.

#10 FRESH BEDDING

I bought us a new bedding set before we went on holiday, and the day we came back I put it on and it was a dreamy situation. Plus it’s got super cute animals on it so that’s always a plus in my book. My mum doesn’t seem too keen though but at least I like it!

 

Whats made you happy recently? I would love to know!

  • Number 10! It’s unbelievable how such a tiny thing can make such a big difference in the mood that you go to sleep with 😀

    What’s making me super happy is the fact that it’s still 24 degrees warm outside. Long live Summer! ❤️
