Brighten your day!

Oh Autumn, how I love you! The golden crisp leaves and the excuse to drag your duvet downstairs and curl up in front of the fire. The perfect time to pull on a fluffy pair of socks and warm boots, and wear your favourite winter coat. You're sudden past time is sitting with a hot chocolate and watching the rain trickle down your window. 

However, the darkness can put a certain gloom over your mood. The dreariness is shown in our emotions, and occasionally we forget how to smile. So, what can we do to keep the Autumn gloom away in day-to-day life?
Well, you just have to remember the things that make you happy! 
What makes me happy?

My friends - Just a hug from a friend makes me feel happy. I have an amazing group of friends that always make me laugh, and I know I could go to any of them for help or advice or just if I'm feeling down

My family - this really will sound cheesy, but I love my family so much. My brother is my go to guy, and although we argue I can count on him for ANYTHING, and I hope he feels the same.

Good memories - what makes you smile more than anything? Looking back at an amazing memory and just bursting out laughing or sitting there with a silly grin on your face!

Relaxing - I'm still at school, so my life is filled with homework and revision, mix that in with trying to blog and come up with ideas, and just doing normal teenage stuff, it's a lot. It's so nice to just be able to sit down from time to time, with a magazine like Elle or Cosmopolitan (or more teenage ones likes bliss) and just read with a hot chocolate in my hand and a lush face mask on my face.

Testing new products - one thing that I love is finding a beauty product that you really love. One that you can commit to, and does wonders! I find that magazines help this one a lot. You often get free samples of things like foundation ( which reminds me, I really need to see how much that clarins foundation is, because I am in love with it!) as well as the main freebie, for example I recently got benefits sunbeam and a misguided lipgloss from some magazines...

Walks with my puppies - well, I guess I can't really call them puppies anymore, but I love taking them for long walks. I live in quite a green area, so Autumn is the most amazing time for scenery. Also, it's pretty funny watching my dogs chase geese on the canal path, an then get really scared when the geese honk at them :')

Blogging - I haven't had my little blog for long, and I haven't many followers, but I cherish every follower I have. I'm pretty sure my posts are actually quite boring, but knowing somebody wants I read it is really heart warming. I do try my best to update frequently, but I know I don't really do that. I've noticed a HUGE increase of page views recently, and it makes me feel amazing!

Planning for Christmas - yes, I know, it's only October , but the big say is getting closer and closer. I'm one of those people that doesn't give a damn what I get from people, or if I get nothing at all, but absolutely love giving people presents. I've been collecting all the catologues, and planning what to get people. However this has made me realise how desperately I need job. So you know, if you need any one to work for you, I'm ya gal! Haha!

So, what makes you happy?
Maybe you could leave it in the comments...? :)
Talk to you next time!
