Looking over my past couple of days it struck me how a few lovely experiences have suddenly outweighed the stress that has been trying to consume me. I had an idea to make a list of things that have recently been making me smile amidst this, so that maybe if work or study or anything has you down, your eyes might begin to sparkle again too.
♡ Going out for Coffee
Or whatever beverage that your heart desires.
Send someone you miss a little snap to see how they are or distract yourself with the filters. ps this isn’t sponsored.
♡ Zoella Vlogs
I don’t know what it is about this women and her life but sometimes having her videos on in the background stop me from falling asleep whilst sketching floor plans and piecing together my journals for university. Or when on the verge of breaking down, 30 minutes of this literally gets me inspired again, anyone else?
♡ Fluffy Creatures.
Perfect excuse to introduce the blog to my little kitten,
But really all animals no matter how fluffy they are, are amazing.
The other afternoon I went for a walk along the beach – this in itself is another little thing that can be super uplifting. This little puppy on a leash ran up to me. WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS HOW CUTE THIS PUPPY WAS. I really don’t know how exactly to express to you how cute this fluffy little animal was. It was so friendly and happy, with the biggest brown eyes and fluffy ears. The little girl and who appeared to be her grandma were so sweet informing me that beautiful little creature was a 16 week old Kings Charles Spaniel. From then I officially decided that when I can this is the puppy I am getting. I literally jumped straight onto instagram and followed every account owned by a King Charles Spaniel, which leads to my next little thing…

♡ Throwback Taylor Swift
I don’t know man something about singing songs you know every single word of since you were 15 is pretty impressive. I’m not going to lie, I’m kinda proud. PLUS I recently discovered that ‘back to december’ was about T Lautner?!?! How did I not know this?!
♡ Filling up notebooks
Something about this is so satisfying for me.
♡ A Friendly Face
Even if that friendly face is you. I cannot express how one person, telling you that the things that you think are all crashing down will stop, can change your outlook in a specific area of your life. And is cliche as this is – smiling at strangers can sometimes be so important.
Let me know of any little things making you smile! The beautiful thing about this is that there are millions.
