5 Random Things That Make Me Happy.

With the cold weather showing no sign of going just yet - sigh - I thought I would share a 'lifestyle' post and chat about 5 random things that make me happy...

Singing in the car - especially on the way to work.
Even if I'm in a right old mood because it's raining, or I've been in a rush because I forgot to make my lunch the night before (this happens a lot), singing cheers me up! I put on my favourite song (currently Lorde, Sober) and sing my heart out. I've realised that my day gets off to a pretty good start every single time I do this.

Someone having a baby or getting engaged
Even if I don't know who they are, if there's a cute engagement or baby story online I'm sucked into it all. A good example being Kylie Jenner, I don't keep up with the Kardashians, but that baby announcement definitely made my day - so cute!

My skincare routine
It's a guaranteed 5-10 minutes without my phone, laptop or any other technology and I bloomin love it. Sometimes I'll play some music and just take my time, I've kind of neglected my usual pamper sessions at the minute so it feels good to be able to just relax while I take my makeup off. Also, how amazing is that feeling when you remove your mascara and can finally rub your eyes, I feel like it's worth wearing makeup just for that alone.

Friendly strangers
This is what actually spurred me on to write this post, I'm in such a good mood because I just had a good 10 minute chat with legit the cutest lady in M&S. It's not often people go out of their way to create a conversation with a stranger, but I love it. Admittedly I need to get a little better at being the conversation starter,

Lists
I went to see a Psychic about a week ago (an experience I may do a post about in the future) and the first thing she said to me was 'you love making lists' and I thought, you know what, yeah, I really do love a good list. I probably write a list if not 2 a day, I love the feeling of 1) being organised and 2) being able to put a tick at the side of it when it's complete. I would feel lost without a little scrap of paper with a list of things I have to do everyday.

What random things make you happy?

  13. Friendly strangers are totally something that make me happy too, but you know what really makes me happy, strangers with manners! Those who open doors or offer their seat on the tube, they make me so warm and fuzzy on the inside! I am so the same with lists, I have a personal list, a weekend to-do list, a work list, I fricking love a list! xx
