1. It being summer
I love everything about summer. The sunshine, it being light for longer, the BBQs, the cocktails, the smell of sunscreen, the bright colours. Literally everything! Even if I'm having a bad day, it still seems more bearable in summer than winter.
2. Having a week off work
I'm not one of those people who hates their jobs, and I don't dread going every day, but it's been lovely to have a week off recently. I got a lot of stuff done, caught up on some stuff that I had fell behind in and got ahead in some other stuff to take the pressure off a little. I went outside and enjoyed the sun, met up with friends and just generally chilled out. I realised I hadn't had a holiday from work since last December, so I think this was well overdue.
3. New nail polishes
I'm not really a girly girl, so this one might come as a bit of a shock, but I've gotten really into painting my nails lately. I love trying lots of different colours. At the beginning of the week, I received my order with lot's of new ones. I've even done a little post about it! You can read it here: http://myrandommusings.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/avon-nail-polish-haul.html This picture shows the ones I like best for summer. They arrived at the perfect time. At work my hands are constantly in and out of water so my nail polish doesn't usually last very long, but with being off this week, it lasted a fair few days before chipping!
I say I'm not a girly girl, then talk about nail polish and shoes! I have a definite thing for shoes. The higher and less likely I am to be able to walk in them, the better. Shoe shopping is the only retail therapy I actually enjoy - generally I hate shopping. The picture is one of my favourite pairs. I can actually walk in these too - bonus!
I know this one is a bit cheesy, but it's true. My friends are a huge source of happiness in my life. There's nothing more up lifting than having a good laugh with the people you love - sharing your daily lives and helping and inspiring one another.
Which things make you happy?
