Things that made me happy lately

This feeling positive thing is going really well recently. I've made a point to ignore any negativity which at times has been tough -there's so much of it about! I wish people would stop finding reasons to be angry! but it's really made me focus on things that made me smile.

So I wanted to share things that have made me happy in the last few weeks.

I had a bit of a blogging slump and I was close to giving up for all sorts of reasons. I think we all have moments like this and it's lovely when something snaps you out of it. I had a few Invites to events, I was made a VIB by Bloggers Love,  I hit 500 followers, something I never imaged could happen! 

I started to make some sense of the technical side of things too, scheduling tweets, finally sorting out my ad sense and beginning to 
understand my google analytics (I've got a long way to go with that one!) and I received a lot of supportive comments and tweets which made my day. The most important thing of the lot was meeting so many lovely bloggers which really restored my faith in women kind! Everyone was lovely and welcoming and everyone complimented each other and ... well, it's something I wasn't used to! It was lovely to be around and I'm feeling so much more like myself (I've got a little way to go with that one too!)

My son 
It's a bit of an obvious one that my son makes me happy. Every age he's been I find myself going 'this is my favourite age' -he's just a lot of fun at the moment and so many things he does makes me smile. He's so well behaved and I'm amazed by him everyday.

Good Service 

I love good service, I always appreciate it. I went to Lush to pick up some bits for my friends birthday and everybody was so helpful and I left feeling really cheerful. I wish everyone would just be nice to each other all of the time. (and I wish I could bake a cake full of rainbows and smiles and everyone would eat and be happy... name that quote)

There's a lot coming up over the next few months. I love having a packed diary. Planning fun things with friends always makes me smile and gives me something to look forward to. I think it's important to try and get away from every day life from time to time. I love nothing more than catching up with my wonderful friends and family. 

Wearing Boots
I'm not a fan of this time of year but I'm coming to terms with Summer being over and I'm embracing wearing my boots. I have a selection and each time I wear them I feel a little more ok with this time of year.


I recently won a new coat, £100 Little Mistress vouchers and £100 of Make Up Revolution products. My luck was definitely in! Of course new treats make me smile, I'm only human!
