Happy girls are the prettiest girls

I think Audrey Hepburn was onto something when she said that line [title of today's post] and after last weeks slightly negative post about blogging and life. As it's blog positivity week I thought I'd develop that into my everyday life and think about what makes me happy, laugh, smile and why they do. Sometimes it's all too easy to focus on the negativity, especially when I feel like I have no pull or say on my future of where I'm living, but there still is plenty to be happy about. And yes this really is the second post on this Monday [back into blogging - somewhat!]


Mac n cheese, LA Colours - bargain varnish from the $ store, compact winnings from eBay, playing the pawn stars game on facebook endlessly, summer shoes, reading and more peeps!


♥ Buying the first pair of shoes for the warmer months 
♥ Sushi
♥ Getting back into reading and ordering The Hunger Games from the library
♥ Finding goodies in the dollar store
♥ Eating tonnes of mac n cheese after releasing I do actually like it after thinking for years I didn't
♥ Sorting old photographs with the boy
♥ Our kitties
♥ Winning compact lots on eBay
♥ Going outside without a coat
♥ Dortios Tacos - the new thing at Taco Bell
♥ Waking up with my soul mate every day
♥ Driving along finding a sign for an estate sale and proceeding to have a thorough rummage
♥ Endlessly playing the Pawn Stars game on Facebook
♥ Thinking about our mini road trip to Ohio to go to Cedar Point
♥ Lighter nights
 
As she sums up everything so perfectly, I'll leave you with Audrey's quote;

On the set of Funny Face. Source

"I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” 

What's making you smile lately?

Tomorrow I'm launching the first post in my bloggers who collect series [still chance to get involved if your interested] which I'm really looking forward to releasing into the blogger world, just get in touch for more details.

    1. I might just have to try that recipe!

      I'm really looking forward to starting the book, I've totally got it just for the sheer hype all over the blog world! Trying to finish off the shrug I'm crocheting first because I have a feeling I won't want to put it down once I've started reading it.
