So, I decided to put together a post about all the things which make me happy to cheer myself up a bit.
Picnics are always perfect in the summer. I love heading out to the park with friends or family and a bag hamper of food. It is especially nice if you make some little treats yourself to hand out.
If I had to live off of one thing forever, it would probably be watermelon. It is so refreshing and it looks so nice and it's something you just don't get sick of.
I love being outside at dusk during the summer. Just when it gets a bit cooler and the suns starts to go down. Just sitting outside having a chat with your friends at this time maybe with a glass of Malibu and coke - perfect.
Who doesn't like pizza?! It is the food of kings. Especially the pizza from Pizza Express.
I haven't had a BBQ in such a long time but I really enjoy them. Despite not being the biggest fan of meat, I really like a good BBQ. Especially the BBQ pudding options - eg. you can put a banana in caramel sauce and wrap it in silver foil then barbeque it. Delicious!
I love how fairy lights and lanterns look when they are strung up outside. If I got married, I would love to dine outside or in a little marquee adorned with fairy lights for the reception.
Tiramisu is my go-to pudding. I absolutely adore it. They do an especially good one at Carluccio's.
Coke floats are just the ultimate summer drink. I always had them with pancakes at summer camp and I always had them at my grandparents' as a kid so I love them.
Sausage dogs are my absolute favourite dogs ever. They are so cute and I love seeing them run with their little legs.
Pride and Prejudice
The book. The Colin Firth film. The 2005 film. I love them all. If I need cheering up, I stick on P&P and get lost in the cuteness of Darcy and Bingley and how relatable so many of the situations are and how realistic the characters are.
I love a good market. An antique one (Shepton Mallet, Newark), a food one (Borough Market), a fete, or a jumble sale - they are all amazing.
Both the films have such a feel good vibe and are so relatable. I think every woman has felt like Bridget at least once in their life.
Colour co-ordinated bookshelves
I love this look. I recently colour-coordinated my own bookshelf (as I am such a cool kid) and I love how it looks. I hope to one day have enough Penguin books to have a shelf of all orange spined books.
I hope you enjoyed this post and I would love to know what makes you happy.
