My week in pictures | 30th November 2014

Sorry I didn't upload this last week, I only ended up with about 2 pictures so I thought I'd include them in this. 

New job!! 

My little sister seems to find it funny to take the most unattractive photos on my phone. 

Throwback Thursday. Miss this pony so much!! 

I spent a good few hours playing this with my niece and nephew haha - boring I know. 

Life now is so different from last year. 


Anyone else? 


The fog on the way to work was crazy!

Best things ever! 

Seriously considering a haircut now. 

So that was my 2 weeks, what have you been up to?

5 Tips to Living a Happier Lifestyle

5 Tips to Living a Happier Lifestyle

I'm not saying I'm the happiest person in the world and I'm not suggesting that these work for everyone but they are what's working for me.

So here's my top 5 tips to living a happier lifestyle. 
(In no particular). 

Being healthier.
Now I don't mean being a gym freak. I just mean getting a decent amount of sleep each night (I aim for about 8 hours - where possible). 
Then I'd say drink more water, maybe its just me but I always feel better if I drink water over juice or fizzy drinks. 
Laying off the junk food a little, not loads, start off with saying no to one a week. I always eat junk food so I'm not trying to sound perfect haha. 

Remove negative people from your life.
They're the main thing that bring you down - I've learnt from experience. 
There's no point being with people who don't truly make you happy. 

Cut down on technology. 
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, etcetera, are so depressive and boring. People only use them to show off how good their life is. We waste so much of our lives on our phones and laptops which can't be healthy! 
Try cutting that out for maybe an hour or 30 minutes an evening, depending on your lifestyle. 

Regularly do a hobby.
We all have things we enjoy right? 
Football, Judo, painting, writing, sky diving, volunteering, basketball, whatever interests you, do it! It'll be a nice break from your usual activities. 

Take time to relax. 
Have a nice bath, read a book, go for a walk or listen to music are all great ways of relaxing. I find the best time to do this is just before going to bed as it helps to sleep too! 

And there we have it, my 5 tips to living a happier lifestyle. What would yours be?

What's in my bag?

What's in my bag?

I've been thinking of doing this for awhile so I thought now would be a good time as it's currently really full and needs emptying!! God knows what we will find! Let's go. 
My bag is from New Look and its huge so I'll warn you now this post may be quite long. I love the gold pattern on the front. 
It's just has one main compartment with a little phone bit and a little zip inside. 

Just take a second to admire the amount of rubbish that's on top!! Oh god. Right I'll just pick out some random stuff. 

We've got a headband thing for when it gets cold at the stables. My purse, some moisturiser, a random pallet of eyeshadow which I don't even use (it's from Halloween I think) and some toothpaste which also has a toothbrush in because you never know when you need to brush your teeth! 

I should have looked through before I started this! I've so much rubbish haha. Right so there's my book at the top, body fragrance, hand gel, nail varnish, a hairbrush which I've never used (I might need it one day), headphones, cards that should be in my purse, lipstick and razors because you never know when you need to shave?! Haha that's a joke, I bought them the other day and never took them out. 

Yummy I found food! Sorry, right, there's my sunglasses, 2 subway straws, more hand gel, a Capri sun, 2 chocolate rolls, a Mr Kipling slice (currently eating), a mirror, a hair grip thing, a gold bar and my iPhone 3GS that I use as a iPod. 

2 pens, hair bands, yet another subway straw, my headphones case, a lolly, my old skating booklet (which is ruined from being at the bottom of my bag), my car keys, old work keys, 2 free coffees from McDonald's, and my bloody Wii remote!! I've searched everywhere for this, now I can watch Netflix again! 

Then in the little pockets I had, 2 lip balms, paracetamol, plasters, bobby pins, my ankle bracelet, and another pen. 
And finally, the biggest amount of rubbish  ever!! That's so disgusting, but it hasn't actually been in my bag long I promise! Haha. Sorry about the lighting, I'm not a photographer and nor do I want to be. 

What's in your bag?
