A Week of Happiness (Tag?)

Hi Guys,

All of last week I was running an experiment in my life to see if people felt the effects. I am a big believer in positive energy (call me a hippy) so I though that I would spread some of mine by being positive. For the whole of the week I attempted to add a bit of brightness into every body's day's; here's a run down of the highs and lows of the week.

Monday and Thursday

Today was complement day! I woke up with an added spring in my step because I knew how great I'd feel after the day. I know it sounds ridiculous; getting ready to spread joy makes you feel more joyful. The best way to explain is that it's like lending someone a book. You get excited before hand to hear there opinions and afterwards it feels even better because you've got someone to talk to about it!

The moment I got into the building I was complimenting left, right and centre! I could tell that a lot of people felt awkward about accepting it though. I think that the acknowledgement from the receiver is the worst part: people feel like they need to tell you something back. I wish that my friends (and all of the random people I complimented today) would just accept that I'm telling the truth!

Tuesday

Smile back day! Today was the day of my first musical theatre exam. Obviously I was nervous, but today I was hiding under an alter ego: my smile! As the first sentence suggests, whenever someone would smile at me I would reciprocate. At first, this was pretty difficult. Nobody was smiling at me to start off with. I soon turned this around by walking around with a huge beam. After an hour my face started to hurt!


Wednesday

Probably my favourite day of the week: positive Wednesday! All this meant was that when somebody said something to me, I would say something really positive back. This was pretty hard for me because when you are speaking to a pessimistic their isn't a lot you can do to change the tone but in the end it worked out pretty well! Some of the best things were telling people how great they would do. When somebody else had confidence in you it makes you feel so much brighter too! 

That's the end of my week. I know I missed off the weekend but it was a lot harder to find people to compliment when I was at home editing! Before you go, I would like to encourage you to do the same thing this week. Please document whatever happens to you. I want to get the week of happiness trending! Don't forget to email me if you do make a post about it because I would love to see what you found!

Don't forget to add me to your circles and I hope you have a great week!

My Christmas Gift Guide!!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to the first of my Christmas posts! I'm already ridiculously excited and there is still 29 days to go! Today I'm going to be giving my gift suggestions for anyone who needs help with their gift giving. Obviously, Christmas isn't all about the presents but it's always nice to give someone a gift that you know they will love! That was a super long intro so lets get into the actual post!

£5 or less...

1) Sleek Mini Matte Me 4 set: I have this on my list because this set looks amazing! For anyone who doesn't know, liquid lipsticks are meant to be the next 'thing' (Thanks to Kylie Jenner) so these are perfect for the makeup lover in your life! The only thing I will say is that they have been sold out online and are impossible to find in store. Let's just hope that they get restocked soon!

2)Impulse Body Spray Mini Cracker Gift Set- Rock and Love, Why Not and Very Pink are all included in this adorable set. The best part about it is that it is cu…

What you Need For Back to School...

It's already this time of year again; obviously I'm thrilled. Of course this is the best part of summer with the perpetual worrying about getting the 'wrong' thing and all of the consideration you have to put into making sure your bag won't clash with your face. I mean, maybe that's not what you're thinking, but now you are, right? Is your backpack the wrong colour for you? I can't confirm it isn't, but I can guarantee that these items are all cute as hell.

Bags:
VANS Snoopy Backpack- Currently, this back pack is sat in my wardrobe, waiting for the sixth of September. I saw it when I was in Cornwall and fell in love with it so ordered it as soon as I got home. My bag was VANS last year and was so well made (there's even a secret pocket)! This one is a dark navy with little drawings of skateboarding Snoopy all around. I've loved Snoopy since I was little and this is just a nice homage to him!
Michael Kors Over the Shoulder- I have never been mor…
