February Happiness Journal

Wednesday 28 February 2018

I think we tend to have pretty high hopes for February as a general rule. Either your January has been a fab way to kick-start the year and you're praying it isn't just a fluke, or the month has been dire and you're glad to see the back of it. Either way, we tend to spend this month trying to keep up our new year's resolutions and longing for Spring.

Last month, I started my Monthly Happiness Journal posts and I thought it was a great way for me to reflect and remember all of the little things that made me smile. So here's what made me happy in February.

1. Starting to work with brands.

Where I am at with blogging is absolutely nothing in comparison with others, but when I was blogging regularly before my year-long break, I never got even a whiff of the opportunities that are coming my way now. I couldn't be more grateful, and it's given me a little boost in confidence that actually, maybe I'm doing okay at this whole blogging thing!

2. Lighter evenings.

It's such a teeny thing which is making such a difference to my mood! I don't mind winter too much but I hate leaving the office and it's pitch black, so I'm absolutely loving being able to actually see a little bit of daylight. (and I can take beautiful photos like this one)

3. A lovely work meal with lovely friends.

Last week I went for a meal and drinks with everyone in my team before I switched departments. Not only did I eat some incredible tapas (if you're in the Lincoln area and haven't tried Ole Ole in the Bailgate yet, you definitely should!) but I got to have a catch up with some of my lovely colleagues who I don't see often due to them being field-based. It was just the perfect way to round off a lovely four months with the team!

4. Watching ALL of the Disney films. 

Dan and I have recently subscribed to Disney Life, a streaming service which allows you to watch every Disney film you can possibly think of. And we are addicted. We've recently re-watched Pocahontas, Frozen, The Lion King... and it's been such a lovely way to unwind and spend a little bit of time together.

5. Pancakes!

Pancake Day didn't go unnoticed in our house, and I had a little (huge) cheat on my healthy eating because Nutella & bananas are the only pancake topping for me.

What's made you happy this month?

  1. A lovely way to look back on your February! Mine was MUCH better than my January was. Much, much better. But I'm hoping March will be even better as I have a few things planned.


    1. I'm so glad you had a better February babe! Hopefully the year will keep getting better! xo

  2. I am all over lighter evenings! Even with this horrible snow storm, I can see spring trying to come through and bless us with more sunlight!!
