10 Small Things That Make Me Happy

I’ve compiled a list of all the small things (not the song, you’re singing it now aren’t you?) that make me happy!

Little disclaimer, obviously the big things make me happy such as world peace but this post isn’t about that it’s just about the little things in my day-to-day life.

Hot Drinks After Being Out In The Cold

You know when you go for a nice little walk in the winter and you can’t feel your toes, but you come home and make tea/hot chocolate and in that first sip you feel like you’re in heaven? No? Just me?

Cosy Nights In

Don’t get me wrong I love a good night out I’m that person that will just leave her friends and dance on an empty dance floor on their own drunk or not –  I love dancing! But in all honesty it could never make me as happy as a cosy night in with Netflix, pizza, tea and my boyfriend. I know I know, what a boring cow.


I’m not going to make this to soppy but yeah in a nutshell he makes me the happiest girl in the world.


An obvious one but I just love them all so much nothing and I mean nothing (not even pizza!) can cheer me up like my family do. Especially my two absolutely gorgeous nieces they make me laugh so much. I’m so lucky.

My Pets/Animals In General

I loooove animals, in fact If I could start all over again I’d build  a career on working with animals. My rabbit’s are my babies and a cuddle from them can make the world go away. I’m literally one of these people who will stop a stranger to stroke their dog and I cry at animals all the time if they’re to cute to cope with. Most specifically donkey’s, I cry at them every time I see one – they just look so sad all the time OK!


I honestly don’t know what we’d do without music, It can instantly put a smile on your face and cheer you up. Although, If I’m honest my favourite music is the depressing/sad stuff you listen to whilst looking out of a rainy window. I think it’s amazing that songs can hold different memories for everyone, It’s crazy how a song can just take you back to a certain place and time.

New Shoes

Shoes are my thing. My obsession. When I get a new pair I can’t stop looking at/wearing them. Everyone has different things they like to spend money on (I’ve never seen Dave as happy than when he buys a new cleaning product for his car – no me neither) shoes are mine.


I live very near a place called Cannock Chase and nothing beats a Sunday walk up there with my family its honestly so pretty. If you’re bored/feeling down don’t scroll through your phones, get outside and see the world! It will make you feel better.


I mean, this is probably my number one really (sorry Dave) lol only joking! (kinda) If I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life without the consequences! it would 100% be pizza. American Hot from Dominos….yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas.

My Friends

My friends are complete and utter idiots but my god do I love them. They make me laugh every single day and I couldn’t get through life without them. They’re the best.

What little things make you happy?
