this is the first in a new series 'happiness is...', each week we'll meet two lovely ladies to find out what happiness is to them.... if you'd like to take part please drop me an email :)
what makes you happiest?
Well lots of things make me happy - coffee, pretty nail polish, my boyfriend's hugs, blogging, good books, pizza, candy... I could go on and on. I guess what makes me happiest are the little things in life.
do you have a ‘happy place’?
My apartment has become my happy place. I'm very quickly decorating it so that it is all mine and it's a place that I can get away from all the pressures that every day life brings.
do you have a favourite happy song?
Oh gosh, it changes all the time. Pretty much anything upbeat makes me happy. Oddly, whenever I'm asked this question I think of the song Smile by Vitamin C because it's what got me through my first week of high school - haha, that was over 10 years ago!
what gets you past a bad day?
My dog Monte. It doesn't matter how bad my day is, when I come home and he's jumping all over me and SO happy to see me I just cannot be upset. The unconditional love is just awesome for getting me past a bad day.
What makes you happy?
The little things in life, like singing really loud to a favourite song, getting something pretty in the post or laughing with friends and family.
Do you have a "happy place"?
The moors. Northern England has so many forests, streams,lakes and hills. You can't not be happy there.
Do you have a favourite happy song?
I have a few, music defiantly makes me smile. Even just flicking through my records to find a song makes me happy!
What gets you past a bad day?
meditating or relaxing in a bubble bath with a good book, makes any bad day better.
