5 THINGS THAT INSTANTLY MAKE ME HAPPY


We all have bad days and we all have good ones.  Whether I'm the happiest I've ever been or I'm really feeling completely horrible, there are a couple of things that never fail to completely cheer me up.  I figured that today, I would share them with you.  Let's get started.


A Hot, Sunny Day at The Beach

If you read along here, you know that I am no stranger to the beach.  I'm actually its biggest fan.  There's nothing better than a hot, sunny day in the sand.  I really enjoy sitting back, relaxing and letting the sun hit my skin.  It's a feeling that's euphoric and hard to explain.  Best part about it?  If you get too hot, you can take a couple of steps to the East and you're in the Atlantic.  Because you know, East side's the best side.  :)

An Authentic Coconut Smelling Candle

Another thing you'd know about me if you read the blog regularly, is that I am a huge candle fan.  I really don't tend to discriminate against any candles for that matter, but I particularly love a coconut candle.  Because I am a very big fan of the beach, sun, and a tropical environment in general, the scent of coconut makes me generally happy.  In the middle of the winter sometimes, I love to light a coconut candle and think about the summer.  

Flowers

Anything that has to do with flowers or a floral pattern, I'm in.  I think it's generally known that flowers usually make people a lot happier when they're feeling down.  I am a huge plant lover in general so anything that emits that energy into the air in the room makes the atmosphere much more breathable.  Everything becomes much more enjoyable.

A Family Day

I look forward to talking more about my family in the future on the blog, but for now I know you've seen a couple of posts where I have done things with them.  Whether I am upset and need cheering up or I'm having the best day ever, chilling with my family always just makes everything ten times better.  I think it's really important to make sure you take time to spend with family because there's never enough!

New Shoes/Clothes

I know retails therapy isn't always an option, but I can't lie: it always makes me extremely happy. Even if it's just one or two things, it's a nice refreshing feeling to have something new that you can create with.  Not only this, but sometimes buying one new thing or maybe even exchanging with a friend can give you inspiration to use older things in your wardrobe that you don't normally!

What makes you instantly happy?  Tweet me and let me know!
