A creative lifestyle blog.

Tuesday 28 April 2015


This day will forever be one of  'those' days as today marks the 14th year anniversary of my fathers death. Since openly writing about bereavement and my not so picture perfect childhood in the past, click here if you would like read that, I have found a lot of strength and positivity in sharing my experiences online. 

So instead of spending this day hiding away from the world, wishing to go back in time and change those last few final words, I have decided to write a list of 10 things that make me happy, not matter what day of the year it is. 

1. Sitting down, listening to records and loosing my mind in music for 5 minutes. 

2. Rearranging bouquets of flowers. 

3. Date nights and falling in love all over again. 

4. Bike rides in the sunshine with the wind blowing through my hair. 

5. Clean sheets and freshly shaven legs.

6. Catch ups with my nearest and dearest.

7. When a cat willingly comes to you for attention, rather than you forcing it upon them. 

8. Binge watching an entire series on Netflix, preferably with ice cream. 

9. A fresh cup of coffee first thing in the morning. 

10. Finding misplaced lipstick's in the bottom of one of my many handbags.

I find writing things like this very therapeutic and even just thinking of the things that make me smile has lightened my mood and taken that heavy feeling from my heart.
