These aren’t in any sort of order, but just random small joys!
Fruit-topped waffles! I received a waffle maker for Christmas, and I absolutely love it! It’s a really healthy breakfast and just so good when you put fruit on top, like seriously good 😋 It always sets me up for a really happy, good day and is really filling.
Exercise! *cough: running* There’s something so refreshing about pushing your body and feeling the burn 😂 I used to hate it but now it’s one of my favourite things to do. I promise there is some sort of exercise out there for everyone!
Yoga! I only just started this a few days ago after reading a lot about how calming and good for your body it is, and I’m in love. I started off with this Yoga Teacher on YouTube, and have been doing a lot of her videos! I try to do it every day at around 6pm to calm me after my sometimes fairly stressful days, and it works! ☺️
Baking and cooking! Ah, I’ve been baking and cooking since I was about 5 years old, i’s one of those things that you just don’t grow out of, I get so much joy from putting flavourless ingredients together to making a delicious dish! It’s also an amazing skill to have for when you grow up, nobody is going to cook your meals for you!!
Unless your crazy rich and have a personal kitchen team but where’s the fun in that?!
Reading! Uhm, duh?! Reading is and hopefully will always be my favourite joy, I love it so much! Just settling down with a good book and a nice cup of tea in my hand (okay coffee if your American and not caffeine intolerant like me 😂 ), listening to the rain patter against the windows and ah! You guys see what I mean? 😆
Blogging! This is also one of the biggest joys in my life, I just love every single part of it! I mean the fact that I own and write a blog sometimes shocks me 😂 Your lovely comments are my favourite part though, like ahh my heart melts with each one 💖
Lists! They are so helpful. I have lists for everything: daily to do lists, blogging, monthly goals, birthday list, travel list, online shopping list etc.! 😂 I just can’t remember it all in my head, it stresses me out unless I don’t write it down! Elsie totally gets me, haha.
Waking up early! (Disclaimer: unfortunately this is not the view outside of my window just to clarify that 😂) It’s so refreshing to have the whole day ahead of you, and time to complete all those tasks that have been weighing down on your to-do lists! I give you all a challenge to wake up early tomorrow, you can do it! 😊
Achieving your goals! Ah, that sweet feeling of going through your goals list and ticking them off. There’s something so nice about feeling accomplished you know? Like I literally feel like that guy on the mountain above, just my goals are a lot more easier than climbing a mountain thank gosh otherwise I don’t think I’d be getting very far! 😅
Hot Holidays! I LOVE hot holidays, like so much. I love cold holidays too like skiing, but hot holidays are my fave. Like the heat just ahh *takes hair dryer, closes eyes and pretends is sitting on the beach on a hot holiday* okay just kidding back to business. And then when you take a dip in the pool and it’s all cold and just ah I want to go on a hot holiday now haha! 😂😢
Hugs! It’s proven science that we need 12 hugs a day to develop emotionally! How crazy is that?! Hugs just make me feel so warm and protected, whether it be from my friends or my family, but there’s something so nice if you feel sad your mum/dad/friends giving you a warm hug! Or even your favourite teddy (don’t lie, we all do it 😂)
The Vampire Diaries! You all probably think it’s sad I get joy out of a TV programme, but honestly why not?! I just love sitting down after a stressful day and watching an episode
which usually turns into three episodes 😂 I totally love this program! Witty Damon makes me laugh so much, Stefan makes my heart melt, Elena is just a bit of a wet lettuce but Caroline ahh I love her! She is my inner spirit fictional character 😂
Water! You know when you are super thirsty an then you just take that first sip (okay, I usually glug it but let’s pretend we’re at least slightly lady like) and the coolness just slides down your throat- ah it’s so satisfying! 💕 I love it!
Finding something you’ve lost! This is 100% one of the best feelings ever! Sometimes I wonder if it’s worth losing that item for the satisfaction that comes once finding it? Then I’m like hell to the nah…
Parents saying ‘they’re proud of you’! Ah when my parents say this I literally want to cry, like this is the biggest compliment in my eyes because let’s be honest, we all search for our parents approval in the hope they agree with what we’re doing and when my parents say this to me my heart melts with pride and happiness!! 😔

So I have about five awards to do at the moment and ever since I came back from my hiatus I haven’t discovered many blogs
I should probably do some blog hopping but at the same time nah 😭
Arshia – Her comments never cease to bring a big smile to my face, and she’s always there reading my posts and supporting me! Her posts honestly are so inspiring and her blogging voice is so strong and has such a positive impact on everyone. Ever since she stumbled upon my blog she’s been one of my biggest supporters and I am so thankful for that 💕
Ash – Her blog is just this beautiful aesthetic and I am just in love! I’ve loved discovering her posts and I must say her bujo is just goals!! I’ve had some really nice conversations with Ash and can’t wait to get to know her better as a blogger, I discovered her blog from The Diamond Village (another incredible community blog you should check out) and ever since then I’ve been in love!! Also did I mention how soothing her voice is? All her YouTube videos are so calming!! 💫
I’m also really keeping up with my blog at the mo, which I’m honestly surprised and very impressed out! My next post will definitely be on Friday with the blurb and prologue of KIP, stay tuned for that and hope you enjoyed this award!! 😉
What are some of your small joys in life? Do you relate to any of mine? Is it just me or are tags popular as ever at the mo?
That’s a wrap 📚
