Happy things 11.03.17

I've been feeling pretty chipper lately despite some ups and downs. Here's a few things that have given me a boost this week.


It's almost here! It's not dark when I leave for work anymore, it's so much warmer today and the flat is full of tulips. Just a taste of better weather has already lifted my mood. I'm dreading the hayfever but it's a small price to pay for the feeling of sun on my skin!


I hate dark winter mornings and really struggle to get out of bed, but the summer approaching means waking up naturally with the sun and having a little extra time to have a cuppa and just 'be' instead of rushing around like a headless chicken. It also makes it that little bit easier to get to the gym or get on my yoga mat before work instead of after.

French Toast

That leads me on nicely to breakfast. I'd never made french toast at home before until I realised just how easy it is. I've been using this recipe which takes no time at all and is perfect every time! You can eat yours with fruit or bacon if you like, but I prefer to keep it simple with a dusting of icing sugar.

Bullet journals 

I debated getting one for a while but I've finally jumped on the bullet journal bandwagon and I'm now a big fan. All it takes is an afternoon spent laying it out and indexing the pages and you're good to go. It's creative and can be tailored to include exactly what I need instead of me buying an expensive pre-laid out diary and not using all the sections. Plus there are loads of YouTube videos dedicated to journalling if you need a little inspiration. I loved Lily Pebbles' video about hers.

What's been making you happy lately?
