10 simple things that make me HAPPY!

June 20, 2011


I’m trying to focus on the positives. Trying to find pleasure in the simple and easy things. I thought i’d share my top 10 with you.

1 – Having bright coloured hair & nail polish. My current favourite is pink hair & crazy bright orange nail polish.

2 – Laying in bed during the day, the sun shining in through the window, snuggled under the blanket, but a small fan on blowing a breeze on my face.

3 – My babies. Frodo, Ginny & Henry. They are my world. I look at Frodo & my heart swells, I honestly believe I can never love anything as much as I love Frodo. These animals amaze me every day and I love them sososo much.

4 – Spending hours watching cute animal youtube videos.

5 – Playing the Sims 3. Yeah, I’m a Sim’s girl. It’s one way to keep my head occupied & entertained for HOURS!

6 – Stationary. I am the kind of person who could spend millions in stores like Smiggle or Kikki K. Actually, my favourite would probably be Typo. But i’m pretty easy when it comes to stationary. I could buy a $2 notepad & it would make me giddy with happiness.

7 – Getting emails, tweets, facebook messages from people who read my blog telling me how much they enjoy it. How it inspires them. Etc. I started this blog as a way to keep my family up to date with things whilst living in Adelaide, and it’s progressed into my baby. I love finding out that people appreciate what I do.

8 – My friends! If i’m being honest, I often don’t think i’m a good friend. I’m not very good talking on phones & I’m often bad at keeping in constant contact. I know friendship takes work on both ends & I often feel stunted in that regard. With everything that has happened though, with the break up, I’ve had so much love & support from such a brilliant network of friends. I feel so honoured to have these people in my life. It’s made this step just that little bit easier.

9 – Pretty shiny things! It’s true, i’m like a cat. If it glitters, it’s mine!

  • Lydia Schmitt

    Oh, I totally second you on hair colour.
    Changeing my haircolour = instant happiness. ^-^

    Your dogs look so adorable!<3

    Yay for stationary! I just love sketchbooks, pens, stickers and stuff.
    However, I never quite know how to use it, especially when it's cute ones – I always think I'll keep them for something special, not just scribbling.

    Hahahaha, I love the unicorn picture. xD

    Naw darlink you so cute kikiki waka waka waka

  • I will never not love that Unicorn picture.

  • I love Sims3!!! it helps me unwind after tough days.

  • I’m happy that you’re finding things to be happy about in all of this. I’m a Sims 3 girl too! I remember vividly the first time I ever played the original Sims, and I think I’ve owned all of them throughout the years.

  • I play Sims like it’s a religion…  I mean, really, who needs sleep? 🙂

  • Moe

    When I read your intro my first thought was pink hair and then I scrolled down and saw that you had hair as the first item. 😉

    I bought 2 $2 notebooks yesterday. One is a pink Mead one and I’m so impressed. Other things that make me happy: my pets, my husband, the plants in my yard, sparkly things, toads, buddha ornaments, twitter, an unexpected check, people who smile for no reason other than being nice.

    OMG I think we are the same person.

  • Heheh, the whole reason I got a new computer was because the Sims3 wouldn’t work on my old one! It made me want to cry having it but not being able to play it!

  • Heheh, I knew I thought you were awesome for a reason!! <3

  • Hehe, well, I think it’s safe to say, coloured hair ALWAYS makes me happy & I tend to go back to pink very often!

    I smile at people, it’s such a simple thing to do. I find people are often surprised at my niceness, I will say thank you to bus drivers & help people if they need it. I don’t know if it’s just my age, hair colour or piercings, but I was raised to be a polite lady.

  • Exactly, sometimes I wish I could put my real life on super fast forward so I can get all the dreary stuff out of the way, so I can play Sims!!

  • I’ve owned them too! I don’t play many games, but the Sims in one I’ve always loved. I used to love rollercoaster tycoon when I was younger too 😛

  • It does, it’s such a good way to relax & have some fun!

  • I like to think of that unicorn as me in unicorn form! Chubby, fancy & colourful hair 😛

  • Awww, thankyou bro!

  • It’s amazing how simple the change of a hair colour can make someone feel! Looking in the mirror to see pink hair automatically makes me smile!

    I LOVE my dogs, I may be biased, but I really do think they are handsome dogs!
    Ihave sooo much stationary that has never been used. I make plans for it or that, but never use it. I still keep picking more stuff up though. Addicted!
