31 Things That Make Me Happy

March 10, 2018

I’ve seen quite a few bloggers making these lists and I love reading them so I thought I’d do one of my own. There are so many things that make me happy but these are what came to mind first.

1.) Snow

Okay, so the recent snowstorm has reminded me of how much I love the stuff! Hate the ice but love the fluffy, white, crunchy snow.

2.) My Cat

Gaston means the world to me. I hate leaving him when I have to go to work and always look forward to seeing him when I get home. He’s incredibly entertaining and cute and I love him to pieces.

3.) Chocolate

If I could eat one food for the rest of my life it would be chocolate.

4.) My blog

Obviously my blog makes me extremely happy. I love writing and connecting with people. I’ve been so busy with my new job lately though that I haven’t really had much time to engage with other bloggers, but I’m hoping to get into more of a routine once I’m a bit more settled and get into it properly again.

5.) The Office

The Office is my all time favourite TV show. If I’ve had a bad day all I need to do is listen to the theme song and I’m instantly relaxed and happy.

6.) My boyfriend

I guess I had to include Jaz in this post. Neither of us are really the affectionate type but we’ve survived almost 7 years together so I suppose he makes me pretty happy, (when he’s not annoying the f**k out of me)

7.) My Bed

It’s my favourite place to go after work. So warm. So snuggly.

8.) Autumn

I know it’s practically Spring but I’m counting down the days until my favourite season is back. Just thinking of Autumn gives me a warm, happy feeling.

9.) Shopping

My favourite pastime if I have the budget.

10.) Christmas

I really do wish it could be Christmas every day…or at least keep the decorations up all year round.


11.) Rainy Days

Totally cliche but is there anything better than sitting inside, hearing the rain pouring down and feeling all cosy. It’s even better when there’s thunder and lightning.

12.) Charlotte Tilbury Glastonberry Lipstick

My perfect lipstick shade. When I put this on I feel confident and sassy and like I can do anything.


13.) The Sims

Hours of my life have gone into this game! I got the very first game when I was 8 or 9 years old and have been obsessed ever since. I now own every single pack. It’s quite the collection.

14.) Makeup


15.) Going to the cinema

I love the whole experience! Watching a brand new film with a bag of popcorn and full screen to really feel the atmosphere is awesome!

16.) Disneyland

The happiest place on earth!


17.) Bellini’s

The most glorious of cocktails.


18) Books

I love to read, young adult books in particular and some good old literary fiction here and there. Unfortunately, I haven’t had much time lately to just sit down and read a book.


19.) Writing

Did you know that I have written two full books and quite a few short stories? Writing is a huge passion of mine. I don’t think I’ll ever become an author as I don’t feel I’m good enough but who knows. Either way, I’m very proud of both my books and love the storylines.

20.) Summer Roadtrips with Jaz

Some of my favourite memories are driving down to the beach on a hot, sunny day with the sunroof back and we usually have Imagine Dragons or Bruno Mars playing.

21.) Mcdonald’s breakfast

A bacon and egg bagel with 2 hash browns and an orange juice is where it’s at!

22.) Sunday’s

Sunday is my favourite day of the week. I love spending the day watching movies and wearing my super cute Sunday jumper!



23.) The Theatre

The theatre can make me cry with happiness! I love it so much and wish I could go more often.


24.) Caffe Nero Hot Chocolate Milano



25.) Birthdays

I love birthdays. Whether it’s mine or someone else’s I just love the whole celebration. Also…cake.

26.) Sally Lunn’s Buns

Whenever I got to Bath I always have to stop at Sally Lunn’s Buns. It’s an adorable, historical restaurant and the buns are amazing!

27.) My Mother

Again I don’t want to be sappy here. Just think Lorelai and Rory Gilmore (or Lorelai and 2 Rory’s with my sister) and you’ll get the idea.

28.) Payday

Pretty self-explanatory. Who doesn’t like waking up in the morning and seeing a healthy bank account?!


29.) Netflix

Spending a whole day binge-watching a show on Netflix is pure bliss.


30.) Animals (Particularly Dolphins and Giraffes)

So so so cute!



31.) Candles

I have a ridiculous amount of scented candles and they all make me feel so happy and cosy.


There are so many more things that make me happy but we’d be here all day If I listed them all! I hope you enjoyed this post Let me know in the comments what makes you happy!
