Outfit Of The Day #2: 10 Things That Make Me Happy.



OUTFIT OF THE DAY #2: 

10 THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY.

Firstly, I've noticed from creating this post - is how desperately I need to clean my mirror... 
Secondly, this outfit was from an afternoon spent drinking w/ my momma at the Moat House in Birmingham's Brindley Place.  I written out a post about how I've been spending majority of August out on week-day trips into Birmingham for overdue catch up with friends and how each time resulted in too many cocktails and how I began to feel slightly embarrassed about the amount of hangovers I was turning up to work with. I realised instead of getting caught up and worried about whether I was doing the right thing, I was just to enjoy myself and put myself first for a change. I've been enjoying myself and that's all that matters right now...so I deleted the original post.  
So for today's outfit post I thought I'd share something a little different, it's been a wild few months/weeks and that's realistically the reason behind all my drunk stories. 
And unfortunately it's all been a test on my mental health, some days are easier than others - obviously. However this weekend I found myself struggling a little more than usual, granted it turned out to be combined with my period and hormones but struggling none-the-less. [fyi, being sent home after crying for four hours during one of my shifts was definitely a low point]. 
Last year I wrote this post on 23 things that make me happy and whilst majority still do - a lot has changed in 12 months. A lot of these were simple pleasures in life, the little things that get me by and I'm going to concentrate on them again.
1. MY BEST FRIENDS - CHARLOTTE, LAURA, SAM & ELLIE. YOU MY GIRLS & YOU KNOW WHY. 
2. A CHILLED OUT DAY ON THE SOFA. 
3. NEW & CUTE SNAPCHAT FILTERS - (BASIC BITCH I KNOW). 
4. THAT FIRST CUPPA IN THE MORNING. 
5. AFTERNOON COCKTAILS W/ FRIENDS. 
6. MY NEW BEDROOM, MY HOUSEMATES, MY NEW HOME. 
7. FALLING IN LOVE WITH NEW MUSIC. 
8. REWATCHING & RE-FALLING IN LOVE WITH ONE TREE HILL, GILMORE GIRLS & GREYS ANATOMY. OVER & OVER AGAIN - MY COMFORT BLANKETS. 
9. A NEW CLOTHING ITEM GOING INTO MY WARDROBE.
10.  TALKING & MEETING NEW PEOPLE. 

I'm reminded constantly that now is my time to think for me and focus on myself and sometimes I wonder if that's possible...as stupid as it seems, after thinking for another person for five years, it's hard to just remember myself. Sometimes I wonder if it's as simple as remembering the things that make me happy and focusing on them. Simple things like making that first cup of tea in the morning, making plans with friends or just spending the day in bed because I don't want to do anything else.
We all need to put ourselves first every once in a while, take the time out if we feel it's needed or finding friends to hang out with when we're feeling lonely. It's the simple pleasures in life that can help make our minds happier.
What makes you happy?
