10 Things That Make Me Happy

Sometimes we get so caught up in being busy and checking everything of our to-do lists that we forget the simple things. The simplest things are most definitely what make life so great. Not everyday is going to be a big spectacle of breakfast served in bed on a platter followed by a trip to France. So here is a few of my most favourite, simple things.

1. Cuddly animals- Seriously unless you're allergic who could say no?! Not being able to have a pet of my own greatly saddens me but I look forward to when I move into a place by myself and can. I will have a black cat and call him Salem after Sabrina's cat from Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

2. Finding a great book- You don't find amazing books all the time but when you do there definitely isn't much better. Especially on a rainy day where you can just sit in bed, sip on some hot tea and just read to your hearts content.

3. Fluffy socks- I don't know about you but when my feet are happy I am too. On days I'm wearing boots you can bet your bottom dollar that I'm wearing them with striped, fluffy socks.

4. Fresh fruit- This one might not be for everyone. Food really does run my world though and I am forever eating. Fruit is my favourite way of snacking on sweet foods without having to feel guilty about it. Here in Australia it is coming into Autumn and that means citrus fruits are in season. I think just this week I've eaten a whole kilo in oranges alone. Who cares though, it's healthy ;)

5. A new outfit- For me at least, this isn't just talking about going out and buying something brand new. Sometimes you just feel inspired to put clothes in your wardrobe together that you never thought of wearing together before and it just works. Wearing a killer outfit always makes the day just that little bit better.

6. A freshly made bed- We all know and love this one!

7. Bumping into an old friend- Now I don't know about you but sometimes I find myself so caught up with uni, blogging and work that I might forget to take time to just hang out with friends, especially old ones.

8. A complement from a stranger- The other day I had woken up late for uni and as a result I had just slapped on some clothes and run out the door in a rush to catch the bus. As I was getting off the bus a lady stopped me and complemented my outfit and said that I looked really nice that day. It instantly put a smile on my face and I felt like a rockstar.

9. A hug- Definitely one of the best feelings ever.

10. Putting money into a savings account- Being a student I don't always get to work as much as I would like because I try and always put my studies first. However, it has been a goal of mine, and you can read the post here, to put at least something into my savings at the end of every week. I'm not going to lie some weeks it has been down to a mere $3. It still felt good though because I still got to put something in. I know that when I see how much I have saved at the end of the year I will be thankful for every week I had a lot or even just a little to put into something big.

I hope you enjoyed this slightly different post of mine. I would love to hear what some of the little things that make you happy are!

Night Time Skincare Routine

In my previous post I wrote about my morning skincare routine and also mentioned my skin type so if you want to know more about that just read the first post first. To follow up I am doing a post on my skincare that I use at night. There are some double-ups but I also use a few more products then I would in the morning. When it comes to skincare in the evening my main focus is on fully cleansing, soothing and moisturizing my skin ready for bed. So lets get on with it, shall we?
