5 Small Things That Make Me Happy

It’s always the little things in life that lift my spirits and make me feel good. I wanted to spread some positivity and share 5 things that have been making me happy at the moment…

Having my morning tea in peace and quiet outside… I start work at 8 so I’m up pretty early and there is nothing I love more than starting my day feeling relaxed. Even for just 5 minutes when the weather is nice I’ve been sitting outside and just thinking about the day and what I want to achieve/ do. I’m going to miss the brighter mornings, it’s definitely a time when I feel most inspired.

Putting more time and effort into my skincare routine… I’ve discovered some absolute gems over the past few weeks that my skin seems to be loving! I received the QVC Tili Beauty Box* which contains the Alpha H Liquid Gold and I’ve noticed such a difference in my skin since using it. I’ve also been using lots of oils and hydrating products which makes me skincare routine feel like a treat. There’s nothing more relaxing than taking off my makeup after a busy day!

Going to the gym… I still want to share my workout routine with you guys which I definitely will be doing soon. I just love being able to put my headphones in and focus on something that isn’t work related, I feel like afterwards I have so many more ideas.

Fresh flowers… There is something so uplifting and lovely about having a vase of fresh flowers. It’s something I’m more than happy to spend a little money on every week.

Being organised… This is a bit of a boring one really isn’t it, but with planning the wedding, having emails to reply to and recently starting a YouTube channel I feel like I need to be organised now more than ever! I’ve been using my diary from Kikki.k to keep on top of my ideas and making sure I set aside time in the evenings to do my emails. I noticed it makes me unhappy when I feel like everything is on top of me, so keeping up to date with things has become a priority.

What small things have been making you happy recently?

    I wish I enjoyed going to the gym, I always feel so much better afterwards but it's such a chore going haha… also with you on the fresh flowers, nothing better! I have vases of them all over my house as you can pick them up so cheap in places like Lidl, plus I always have photography props on hand! xxGemma Louise

    Love the idea of taking time in the morning to chill out and actually enjoy your cuppa! My morning tea always seemed to be so rushed as i usually end up gulping it down before i frantically run out of the door ha! With you on the gym as well, i've recently joined and what i thought was going to be a chore actually makes me feel more motivated than ever.Milster x
