  2. The things that makes me happy and makes my world goes around a little faster mirrors yours just slightly. If I had to add, push came to shove, I would say, sports ie. Football, a big Man U fan (my birthplace), Barca and Sufc, F1, yoga fanatic, Rambling, travelling, playing and watching Tennis, retail therapy :-), cinema, beach and sun.

      1. Ooh brilliant. Firstly, I would recommend on finding a qualified instructor within your area, check your level as some exercises may/may not be suitable for others. Work on your balancing and breathing by going online ie. youtube has tonnes of them to ensure that you are prepped. Balance: make sure you get enough iron in your system as this will strengthen your stamina levels. There are some exercises that will challenge you. There are so many ways that you can do yoga so to make sure that it is for you, choose wisely. For example there is kudalini yoga which is one you can do in heat. I recommend taking a friend with you for dutch courage but I strongly advise doing yoga as it will improve your posture, encourages you to be grateful and once you do it everyday, you will see the benefits. Believe you me, it will also tone your tush and tums. Your body will thank you. Eventually you’ll be able to stick your leg in the air and be so flexible you’ll be answering the door whilst doing a headstand (joking). Best of luck and have fun! Enjoy it while you can. It is fun for all ages. Practise, practise and practise (makes perfect). Xx


  3. I always love reading about the things that make people happy. YES on clean bed sheets! They feel so nice and smells so fresh as well, haha. I can totally relate to buying stationery. I have boxes of stickers and such – aka LOVE! Yum, chocolate cake is the best, isn’t it? ;). Thanks for sharing these happy things – keep it up ♥

    1. We we get free Krispy Kreme doughnuts at work too 😍. Thank you I hope work gets better too. Yes so many things that I see you write about, I’m like oh my god, same! 😂. Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend 💚xxx


  5. Such a lovely idea for a blog post! I really like the fact that so many of these are small things and things to relax and unwind. It’s always the little things that put the biggest smile on my face. Like sitting down and watching Netflix after a long day or walking my dog. I really need to try an adult colouring book too! x

  6. Such a lovely list, I agree with so many on here – line dried washing is the best, chocolate gateaux, being on the beach, our cats, writing and receiving letters. I think we’re quite similar, although I’ve never had my nails shellacked – I might have to try this, although my gardener’s nails are pretty much wrecked already, haha! xx

  10. Great post! A lot of your favourite things are mine as well ❤ I literally live in my dressing gown haha! I love to sing along in the car especially if it is Mamma Mia, Ariana Grande or any type of musical. My family are also everything to me that is why our Christmas holidays have always been so fun because all seven of us are together 😊
