Things that make me happy today

I had the idea for this post written inside my blog notebook (a musthave!) for a long time. I got the inspiration from Sarah’s post over at the blog Silver lining avenue. Since I ran out of outfits to share, it has been raining non-stop for days, I thought this would be a nice alternative. What makes you happy today?

1. Pocket money: Now this H&M dress is hanging in my wardrobe!
2. My iPod: Because I repaired it when the applestore men couldn’t. All by myself. 
3. Fall: The trees surrounding my house look really pretty at the moment. 
4. Chickensoup: My favorite. so good!
5. Roxette: I was born in the wrong era
6. Forever 21: My first black blazer
7. Orange: Clashes with my hair, in a good way
8. Not forgetting my umbrella for a whole day!
9. My cosy Topshop sweater that I never used to wear
10. Antwerp: See you next weekend!

My first two days at the Social Servivce went great. Tomorrow I’ll be alone at the office and I’m a bit nervous about that, but I’ll be ok. Thanks for all the kind words you sent me!

 I’m off to prepare a cup of chickensoup now *giggles*

What makes you happy today?

    Hello Nikki, loving the blog and the beautiful pics of your country. What made me happy today was gate-crashing a private function at my university and sneaking away with plates of free food to watch an Italian jazz group that I wasn't meant to be watching 😉 Bas

    What a cute and happy post!

    Today I am happy because…

    It's grocery shopping day!
    I'm wearing a super comfy, cute shirt from Target
    I have Green Tea with Peach (iced) to drink
    I'm enjoying warm, Autumn scents (like Pumpkin Pie room freshener and Va-Va-Vanilla deodorant, hah.)
    Cuddling with Jen and our kitties and Jango, when he lands on us! 😛

    This is a cute idea 🙂 What's making me happy right now is cold medicine and hot tea – getting over a bit of a cold 🙁

    ( I dont know how to do the fancy, respond to your comment so it gets sent to your email…so i'll just write back on here haha )

    someone else left yesterday. i'm slowing shrinking, but I agree the quality is better. I have like 6 loyal commenters and I feel like theyre/you're friends. So that is better to me.

  17. 12 October 2011 / 21:24

    To be honest, I've had a pretty sucky day. :S
    But, you know, I'm kinda glad to see how other people (or you, in this case) really know how to enjoy the little things.
    I can do that only on my good days. 😀

    Anyhow, I do like your blog; following! 🙂

  18. 12 October 2011 / 21:32
