3 Things That Makes Me Happy

The definition of happiness varies from person to person, while I honestly consider it as a temporary feeling or bless, as some would say, I still carve a mental note in my mind saying ‘proceed with caution’. We all hate disappointments –while we try to get over the recent Moz update- so we find a coping strategy and techniques to find our desired happiness. This post is part of a collaboration with the lovely Karalee from Tales of Belle be sure to check out her post.


  • Reading

    I read a line in a book recently –which I conveniently forgot the name of- that goes like this “Read the first page of a book, if you can’t stop continue till you can” and it resided with me. You know it’s a good book if you can’t stop reading it but you also can’t judge a book from the first page so you continue reading it past the first page anyway, that’s why I think it’s cleverly placed in symbolism.
  • Discovering a new hobby

    Our priorities seem to shift as we grow older, being adults has made our attention mostly focuses on our families, careers, personal achievements and we strayed from our hobbies that we enjoyed when we were younger. I find that self-discovery journey to enjoy a hobby one more time very liberating, let alone finding something new that we might actually enjoy, for example, I did not know I liked those crafty projects until I began creating something simple as a friendship bracelet and now I find myself wanting to learn how to create small figurines using resin.
  • Music

    I don’t like to consider myself old but I refuse to update my 10-year-old playlist, Britney Spears and Spice Girls songs still make me happy. On serious note music in general makes me happy not just “Oops I Did It Again” I’m held at gunpoint by an angst teenage me to post this. I appreciate music in all genres.

I’m pretty sure I have plenty of other happiness-inducing methods but I had these in mind since they are on the top shelf of the happy pills, let me know what are yours.


Holiday Wishlist

Hot chocolate, decorated trees, songs that reminds you of snow, beautiful lights across the roads, it’s December and you already know what that means. It’s the holiday season, so grab your ugly sweater and let’s look at the lovely gifts on sale this year which we keep on our wish list every year eventually buying them ourselves because we deserve to gift ourselves instead of waiting for someone to get the hints we are obviously showing. In the spirit of this festive month and also because my birthday in few days, I decided to compile a wish list of things I would want someone to gift me .. someday .. if not, I’m sure my card would love to put a smile on my face.

Drop Dead Clothing


I’m a fan of Bring Me The Horizon, I love their music so I checked the frontman Oliver Sykes clothing line of Drop Dead and I absolutely loved the designs. When I was in London last week, I found the store. I bought a shirt named Nightshade and I loved the material and design of it, I would love to get another one as a gift maybe.

AdoreMe Sleepwear


I love me some new bras and underwear but I wouldn’t say no to sleepwear. I keep scrolling up and down on AdoreMe Sleepwear section because I can’t make up my mind on which one to choose, they all look so pretty and adorable. They offer quite a selection of clothing in different sizes from petite to plus size, sexy to I just want my beauty sleep. Honestly I’m thinking to order few items and post a proper haul sometime soon, let me know if you would like to see that. Image source: Instagram

HTC Vive


I’ve always wanted to try VR gaming, when the Oculus Rift came out I was too excited and I waited for the release but then HTC Vive caught my attention. I mean I know it’s more costly than the Rift but it offers more, it allows you to move around and according to some YouTubers who tried it that graphic-wise it’s better than the Rift and doesn’t cause motion sickness as much. I would love to get my hands on one these headsets and try different type of gaming I suppose.

Kat Von D Everlasting Obsession


If you didn’t know, I’m obsessed with Kat Von D makeup products and I’ve been dying to get one of these Everlasting Lipsticks since I found Lolita shade. Seeing the whole collection makes me want to do something I know I’m not going to regret but my card would grow hands an slap me since I’m a shopaholic. Dear husband, if you ever read this post I want this on my birthday or anniversary or … any day really.

Hope you enjoyed this post of my holiday wishlist and I would love to see yours so if you already posted it, please comment below so I can check it out.

Have a great day you lovely readers.
