50 Simple Things That Make Me Happy!

7th March 2019

Hey everyone!

Todays post is inspired by my lovely friend Alice. She recently uploaded a post about 50 simple things that make her happy so I thought I’d do the same as it’s always nice to be grateful for and remember the little things! It’s often the simple things that keep you going and amount to big things in the end. Here are 50 simple things that make me happy, in no particular order! I’m sure I could think of many more, too. Maybe I’ll do a simple things part 2 as well…

1. Sleeping next to my pup Nacho
2. Mochas that are super sweet
3. Orange flavoured white chocolate (Terrys PLEASE bring the white chocolate orange back)
4. Going on a long walk and having a good conversation with someone
5. The feeling after I’ve done something successfully that I was really anxious about
6. Singing
7. Italian food
8. Nostalgic photos

    What a lovely list and I definitely agree with lots of them! You can’t beat some pop punk and emo, let’s be honest! 😉 It’s always so disappointing when you find a scented candle and then it’s super weak! I’ve found Asda’s own candles to be pretty good when it comes to scent strength, haha. Really enjoyed reading this so thanks for sharing 50 things that make you happy and I’ll keep my fingers crossed for a part 2!

      Thanks Ruth 😊 haha YES it’s the best!! Ooh I’ve only ever tried Asdas tea light but I’ll deffo be investing now! I’ve definitely got a part 2 in the works 😊 x

  2. Really relatable! Especially taking a photo you’re really proud of. (I think you follow my photography Insta so you know I love photography too?) and the feeling when I’d nail the picture I’d envisioned in my head when the plan for a shoot was first conceived is incomparable!!

    So many great ones but we especially 💚 4, 5, 11 and 37! Great post 😊

  4. Loren says:

    This is such a great post to get to know you. I agree with you on lots of them, some of I loved was the chocolate cake ( I love chocolate!) and having your hair done (there’s nothing like great hair).
    This list is perfect for those days you don’t feel happy or feel discouraged, and it deserves a part 2!

      Aww that’s great to hear 😊 yesss chocolate cake is the best! Hehe I have one in the works and I’m excited for it! X

  5. V. says:

    I can definitely relate. Milky and sugary coffee is a life.. although i am not using as much sugar anymore, but it has to have loads of milk 😅 thinking about it, I never tried white chocolate with orange but it sounds perfect and now I am going to order some because omg 😍😍

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      Oh isn’t it just, I love it! Oh my gosh it’s beautiful, I haven’t found it anywhere since Terrys discontinued it!

  6. Rhianna says:

    I relate to so many of these! The book-hooked feeling, emo music memories, eyeliner flicks, olives, Friends, DMs, pups – the list goes on!

    Gorgeous pics too 😍

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

    This is such a lovely post. It’s amazing, we often overlook the simple things that make us happy – like Mum’s Sunday roast and nostalgic photos. This is such an uplifting read and I can imagine a very positive exercise for you to write it xxx


    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      I love a good Mums Sunday roast – she makes the best roast potatoes and swede!! It was really lovely, I’d recommend it to everyone! Xxx

  9. gigisreads says:

    I might do this today! Today hasn’t been a great day for me mentally so this seems like a perfect thing to do!

  10. lifeofshar says:

    I LOVE going on long walks and having a good conversation with someone special. I have had so many of these with my nannah and my boyfriend. I get bad anxiety so when number 5 happens, honestly the best feeling! Pop punk that brings back my emo teenage days YES! The Wonder Years and Real Friends<3. Yes for being hooked on a book and mums roast dinners! These are all so great Alice I love and agree with so many of them! You look amazing in the photographs too! xx

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      Me too!! I do it a lot with Jake and my dad! I feel that so hard, making a successful phone call is deffo a good one haha! Aww I’m so glad thanks Shar 😊 Xx

  11. Well now I feel obligated to do a list of my own 😂 I love everything on your list, nothing mental just lovely things. I’d have on mine, trying to hold a high note and my voice cracking (I always laugh to myself), finding out something I’m buying is on sale when I get to the till and finishing an entire series on Netflix in a day. There are definitely loads more, but I’ll save those 😘❤️❤️

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      DO IT. I love seeing peoples lists!! Honestly the smallest things are the absolute best! Hehehe I’d love to hear that mate, oh my gosh yes I had that recently with a beautiful dress that I was on the fence about buying!! Xx

  12. Long walks are definitely the best in my opinion! So calming!

    Love, Amie ❤

  14. Thank you for linking my post, I’m so glad somebody else has decided to do this as I love reading other peoples’ lists. Sleeping by Nacho obviously has to be number one, she’s the best. I love how many of these are food or drink related, this is why we’re such good friends haha. Honestly I don’t know why Terrys ever got rid of the white chocolate one, it’s clearly the best. I totally agree with 11, it’s so satisfying finding bargains – I’ve been checking Vinted and Depop on a daily basis lately to see if any new items have been added. You definitely need to make me this banana loaf some time, it looks and sounds incredible. Summer evenings are so lush, although I hate sticky heat in the day it’s nice when the air has cooled down a bit. You look gorgeous in these photos, so naturally beautiful.

  15. Oh this is such a lovely post idea!! I’m a firm believer that it’s all about the little things in life that make you happy 🙂 I should create a post like this too – I bet it was super fun to put together! Italian food is amazing, booking a holiday gives you such a buzz and singing releases such happy endorphins doesn’t it?! I can pretty much relate to most of these 50 things xo
