10 things that’ve made me happy this week!



I’ve managed to work myself into a right old pickle this week, and I’m not too sure how. Wedding plans are coming along just fine, life is good, and yet still I’ve felt this weird low level niggling stress and worry for the past few days. I’ve been waking up worrying, without really knowing what I’m worrying about! It’s been the stupidest week, in that sense, but I’m sure a relaxed weekend will be all that’s needed to feel right as rain again. And maybe some chocolate, because of course. Aside from silly worrying about absolutely nothing, the week has been a pretty beautiful one! I mean, with sunsets like that one above, how could it not be? Here’s what’s made me most happy this week…

1. Finally getting my wedding hair style sorted! I had a second trial this week with a different hair dresser, and she was completely amazing. Now I can finally stop having those stupid anxiety dreams about ending up doing my own hair on the morning of the wedding, and walking down the aisle with Shirley Temple curls!

2. Making my first iced vanilla latte of the year!

3. A sneaky midweek Chinese takeaway. Satay sauce + crispy seaweed forevah.

4. A vinyasa flow class at TriYoga yesterday afternoon. I left feeling so mellow, it was completely dreamy.

5. A lilac manicure that magically lasted the whole week (including several dog walks, four fitness classes, hours of typing away on my laptop, and twenty minutes spent trying to wrestle an anti-worm tablet into the dog’s mouth) with only one tiny chip! A miracle!

6. Jason, for putting up with me being such a grouch all this week. And also my Mum, and my Godmother who I whinged down the phone to one lunchtime, and basically everyone I’ve even made eye contact with during the past few days. It’s just been one of those weeks, you know?

7. Whiling away time looking at houses on Rightmove. Ideally I’d like a period house with enough land for a menagerie of dogs/chickens/any animals that wander my way set down a little country lane somewhere, but that also has great access to local shops and is on a main line to London. Not too much to ask, right? ;)

8. Seeing my wedding dress again on Wednesday evening. I’ve got my final fitting booked now, which is completely terrifying!

9. A post-workout peanut butter protein smoothie! It was so delicious, I’m desperate to recreate it at home.

10. Watching Fortitude! It’s so intense and gripping, we’ve loved the series so far! Though I did have to watch parts of last week’s episode with my hands over my eyes- seriously the most gruesome thing I’ve seen in a long time!

Three posts I’ve loved reading this week :: Sarah’s collection of happy things || Anh’s timelessly classic outfit || + Carrie’s photos from a cosy log cabin in Finland.

What’s made it onto your happy list, for this week? :)

    It seems to have been one of those weeks for everyone! It has at my work, anyway. Must be something in the air…

    I agree with the comment below, it seems everyone has been having one of those weeks! Here’s to a much better weekend! A peanut butter protein smoothie sounds *amazing* – yum! It sounds like all your wedding planning is going swimmingly too – that’s super. I started watching Fortitude a while ago, but lost interest after a few episodes (the pace seemed to slow down a *lot*). I’m now tempted to give it another try! xxx

    I totally have that same feeling this week! I’ve struggled to muster up any energy and I’ve had a lot of “middle of the night panics”. I’m planning a quiet weekend to try and combat it!

    Sounds like a few things have fallen into place RE the wedding which is very exciting! Also that Triyoga class sounds really interesting, especially when followed by a PB smoothie, yum!

    Oh, wow, that’s a really strong nail polish. Please let us know the brand.

    That sounds like a fabulous lilac polish – what formula was it? And I have been doing so much yoga and I feel amazing – 45 minutes today really made me feel sleepy :)

    I know the feeling, I’ve been having one of those weeks too! I’m glad you’ve got some things that have been making you happy too, that’s always good :) I’m desperate to take up yoga, I think I definitely need it to calm my nerves!

    I recognise that pink door – King’s Road, right? I’ve been having a similar week so I hear ya. Also, I don’t remember the last time – ever? – I had a manicure last a full week. That’s amazing. Have a great weekend!

    Mid-Week takeaways are the best! I’ve got Essie’s Maximillion Strasse Her on my nails and theres only two tiny chips and I’ve had them on for a week- I’d recommend if you love minimal chipping manicures! Hope next week isn’t as stressful for you :)

    Chinese takeaways and vanilla lattes sound awesome, you are making me want to cave haha xx

    Mmm, Iced Vanilla Latte’s are so yum. Definitely need to make one soon. I love make smoothies as the weather gets nicer too x

    Sadly the morning of my wedding my hairdresser was ill, so couldn’t do my hair! The salon were great and prioritised me and found someone else to do it, wasn’t quite the same, but close enough. I think what I’m trying to say is, everything will turn out ok on your wedding day, even if things do go wrong. I’m sure you will be a beautiful bride, try and enjoy every moment, it goes so, so quickly!

    I’m slowly making my way through a backlog of Fortitude episodes – sounds like I’m in for a gruesome surprise when I catch up! Whenever I go on Rightmove I start off in my price range and area… and end up looking at £20m properties in Berkshire and Chelsea – ooops!!
