Little Things I’m Thankful For

I’ve been on a high of pure happiness this week (a week off work’ll do that to ya!) and I felt like spreading the joy over here on the blog. Nothing totally huge or life changing happening lately, but it’s all those little things that make life amazing anyway, isn’t it? šŸ™‚

So here we have my list of 10 things I’m thankful for


1. Having days off with Gary to spend as we please.


2. Seeing Big Hero 6 in the cinema finally (we’re big kids).


3. Collecting pineapples. Not the actual fruit; trinkets, stationary, prints, clothes. I’m obsessed.


4. Longer evenings of sunshine – Spring is here!


5. Spring Fashion. Pastels and florals are my fave.Ā 


6. Instagram; forever inspiring me and curing boredom.


7. Meeting other Bloggers. This has been an amazing month of finally putting faces to names!


8. New eyebrows. This sounds weird, but I’ve definitely gotten more confidence/compliments since!


9. Catching up with old friends. Yesterday I had the best day/evening out ever with a group of old College friends. Drinking, laughs, silliness; Just lovely.


10. Reaching my blog birthday! Dorkface just turned 1 year old, yay!



Hope everyone else had a lovely week. What’s been making you smile?

  • Such a lovely post – I'm glad you had such a good week. How good was Big Hero 6? It made me cry! Disney always does such a good job. I'm grateful that it is the Easter Holidays so I get a bit of a break from university!

    Big hero 6 was such a lovely film, definitely one of my favourite disney films!

  • Glad you are happy x I had 10 good reasons to be happy too šŸ™‚

  • Collecting real pineapples would have been odd, haha.
    Weeks off work are brilliant. I hadn't used up any of my holiday time this year so I had a week off a few weeks ago, and I'm having this week off. It will be pure bliss.

  • Lovely post! I love reflecting on the little things that make us happy (even though they might seem like nothing special to someone else.) Days off with my boyfriend is my favourite thing ever – we had one today and did basically nothing but loved it! I'm also super excited for these spring nights, spring fashion – and everything that comes with spring haha.
