Things that make me happy.


Here are some of the things that are making me happy at the moment:

1. Blogging.

I'm loving writing new posts for my blog whenever I get the chance to; although this may not be as often as I'd like to, I still really enjoy it at every opportunity I get. It's great to spend some time being creative and just writing, just for the fun of it!

2. Shopping.



I have always loved shopping, whether it involves going out, or shopping online. At the top of my wish list at the minute is this green dress from Topshop - I am loving this colour at the minute, and can't wait to wear it more often when the sun comes out. Some of my favourite places to shop online are Etsy, Amazon, Ebay, Topshop and ASOS.

3. Painting.

Painting has always been a hobby of mine, although I haven't done it as much as I would of liked to, particularly throughout uni, as I struggled to find the time to just paint for fun. However, I recently painted this piece found here, and I would love to keep this up and paint more butterfly images.



4. Friends and family.

Being a family girl, I always love going home to visit all of my family and friends. My mums coming up to visit me in York this weekend which I am very excited about, as I don't get the chance to see my parents as often as I'd like to. One of my friends from home is getting married soon, so I've got lots to be excited about as I am a bridesmaid...I am currently helping to plan the hen party which involves a very exciting surprise! I also have my holiday to Switzerland to look forward to, as well as my birthday in June.

5. Sex and the City.



I watch this way too much. I have the box set, and pretty much watch it whenever I can (such as when my boyfriend is away or is nice enough to watch it with me!). I love Carrie; her hair, her clothes and her figure. Other box sets that I own and watch too much include Desperate Housewives, Dexter, Only Fools and Horses, Fawlty Towers, Friends and The OC.

6. Crochet.



This is something that I have really got into recently, after teaching myself. Although I can only make a granny square at the minute, I am planning on learning how to do some more patterns soon! As mentioned in my previous post, I am currently making cushion covers, and have now made two. The second one is pictured below, and is for sale on Etsy here, at my store, HandMadeByLucyJoy:

I really enjoy crocheting, and love making quirky bits for my home. I'm also planning on making a lot more in the future too.

7. Food.

I think I'm actually addicted to food. I find it really hard to resist unhealthy food, although I do eat a lot of healthy food too so its not too bad I suppose! I really enjoy cooking and eating out, and one of my recent dishes that I cooked up is pictured below - I will definitely be cooking this again soon as it was delicious!

So there you have it, 7 things that are currently making me happy in life. Let me know what makes you happy!
