Hello lovelies,

In case you didn't already know,  International Day of Happiness is celebrated worldwide on the 20th March. You may be thinking 'but it's a Monday?' but it's such a gorgeous day to celebrate because happiness is something which we should all aspire too! To celebrate I have taken the time to make a list of everything that makes me happy!

1. My family/boyfriend
Of course this has to be number one on my list. Now that I live away from home I don't see my family regularly and me and my boyfriend have always been in a long distance relationship. So this means whenever I see them it is really special. I can't get enough of them!

2. The sun 
Who doesn't feel happy when the sun is out? I love the feel of the sun on my skin! The sun is starting to make an appearance now at this time of year and I couldn't be happier. Every morning I am now greated by the sun streaming through my curtains and it's gorgeous.

3. My dog/cat
I have a little Jack Russell called Woody and a long haired cat called Narla (Disney crazy). These two never fail to brighten my day. They are both so excited to see me when I return home from university and Woody never leaves my side while I am there. You can always count on animals to brighten your day with their crazy habits!

4. Bath bombs
Had a rubbish day? Have a good soak! There's nothing better than getting into a nice hot bath, especially when it is pink and sparkly! I can't get enough of LUSH bath bombs, they make me so relaxed and happy.

5. A night in with a good book
Finding that one book which you can't put down, that's what makes me happy. I love curling up in bed with a good book, my room is my happy place, where I am comfortable and nothing can get to me!

6. Cocktails
A nice fruity, alcoholic cocktail. Enough said!

What makes you happy? Thanks for reading, Lauren x

  1. It's so nice that this day comes along and offers an opportunity for us to remember what makes us happy.

    I have a cat, creatively named Kitty, who I adore to bits. He has his quirks, routines and mannerisms which make him, well him, like Woody and Narla.

    A night in, with a good book never harmed anyone either!

    Happy spring!

  2. This is such a lovely list! Some of them definitely make mine too!
