Small and happy's 10 happy things! #14

I know this used to be a weekly post but the way things are going let's just think of this as 10 happy things in life recently!

Not sure about all you guys but life seems to be going full steam ahead at the minute. It's that exciting countdown to summer I suppose! With the nights being longer I seem to be filling them (and the weekends) with lots of fun things. This means the weeks seem to run into each other and then we end up here already getting ready to say goodbye to June! 

Anyway, I digress. Here are ten things that have made me smile, laugh, feel calm, content or grateful recently.

1// Having a massive Netflix session. Yesterday, Boyfriend was working and I didn't have much work to do so I had a full on OITNB, Parks and Recreation marathon and it was absolute bliss. Usually I'm not a huge fan of being on my own in the flat for too long but yesterday I loved it. I even burnt candles! Yankee's new Cappuccino flavour, just if anyone's interested...

2// Starting to get into weight lifting. Yep, little old me. Some of these new exercise classes I've been to have all involved weights and I've started to incorporate them into my workouts now. It feels really satisfying and is definitely making me push myself, which is always a plus in my

3// Completing a full colouring page. This is honestly so soothing and is far better than sitting on your phone whilst watching tv. Let's face it, in this day and age we're hard pressed to do one thing at a time so at least we can try and do something creative like colouring or knitting or crocheting. I would like my skills to extend beyond Facebook stalking at some point.

4// My new Zumba class. I recently signed up to Pure Gym as it's closer than my lifestyle centre and loved the class and instructor. She was a really talented dancer and was just so cool (far cooler than I have ever been!) and energetic with some brilliant routines. Can't wait to go again! 

5// My boyfriend's sister got engaged this weekend. I'm so so pleased for her and this means another wedding on the horizon! I am starting to feel overwhelmed at the amount of them actually, oh well, I suppose it's the age. Bring on the wedding outfit shopping!

6// Reading the new Princess Diaries book. The new adult novel of Princess Mia's adventures (no, not THAT kind of adult you naughty minxes) was at Manchester airport as an exclusive before it's release in early July and I am loving it! If you were a fan of the Princess Diaries books you have to pick this one up. It had been far too long without Michael Moscovitz in my life.

7// Getting a free sample of Chanel's new fragrance in the post. I have the gorgeous Chanel Chance Eau Tendre and I was sent me a tester of their Chanel Chance Eau Vie and I wasn't surprised to discover that it's just as lovely, but sadly just as expensive!

8// The sunshine. It's just always better when it's sunny isn't it?

9// My recent trip to Copenhagen. I definitely will talk more about this but I just needed to pop it in here as it's still making me smile even though it was a week ago. We are so lucky living in Europe to have all of these wonderful places just on our doorstep.

10// My boyfriend leaving lovely Panda post it notes with cute messages on everywhere for me to find. He is just beyond adorable and without all of the wonderful things in this list I'd still be beaming from ear to ear. #sorryforthecheese

I'd never say it to his face though ;)

So there we go, a lot of tv and exercise with some books and travel thrown in and that pretty much sums up my main loves in life so I guess it's no wonder I'm feeling good right now! 

We need to remember how important it is to make time for the things that make us happy. It makes all the rest feel so much better and easier to manage!

What is making you smile at the minute?
