10 Things That Instantly Make Me Feel Happy

Back to another soppy personal post, like the 'How to get Sh*t done' post wasn't enough. I want to mix it up a bit and not overload you with hotspots, beauty reviews and fashion, but also make it a bit more personal. Not that I don't share any personal embarrassing stories in my others posts because I do, like High School Musical, falling flat on my face and stuffing my face with everything I see kind of embarrassing, but those things are what makes me the person I am today and I am really happy to live the crazy grandma esque life that I have.

Although I'm a very bubbly person -most of the time- that's not always the case, since we all have bad days from time to time. Whenever that happens I try to get out of my funk by doing something that cheers me up right away. Sometimes it helps and sometimes I still put on sad Adele songs to go with my mood. I guess then the only remedy is taking a nap haha.

1. Baking
Nothing makes me happier than being in the kitchen and preparing some baked goods. Food in any shape or form makes me happy -I'm that Winnie the Pooh meme where he does a happy shake with a knife and fork in his hand, people tag me in it all the time, because it's what I do when I see my favourite food haha- Of course it always tastes better when you make it yourself, so that's what I love to do. 

2. Listening to old school music
I don't know what it is but whenever I put a Spice Girls or S Club 7 song on I instantly want to sing and dance along. Maybe it's the power of 90s music or my feelings towards it, but it works every, single, time.

3. Watching Disney Channel movies
Again some old school memories from when I was little and hoped that one day I would have a Troy Bolton and get Gabriella's wardrobe. Camp Rock and non-Disney movies like Harry Potter and The Holiday also do the trick.

4. Shopping
I think shopping would solve all my problems, but if I go along with that I would be as poor as Jenny Humphrey in season one of Gossip Girl. Doesn't matter what kind of shopping it is, clothes, Ikea, Christmas stuff or a food shop at the supermarket; I love it all. I'm that kind of person that loves foreign supermarkets. Whenever I'm on holiday I have to see what kind of products they have there. I could get lost browsing for hour's haha.

5. Travelling
Going to the airport to board a plane makes me the happiest girl in the world. Yes, it also makes me anxious and scared from time to time, especially when I travel alone, but I know that once I will be at my destination it will be all right. With travelling you have something to look forward to. I always get so excited to plan everything and look up all the places that I want to go to. Sometimes it's even more excited than the trip itself.

6. Going to the movies on my own
Bit weird maybe, but I love going to the movies on my own. I have been doing it a lot the last couple of months and I love seeing all the new films that are out. I actually have seen the same film six times in the cinema. It was this Dutch romantic comedy -normally they are sh*t- but this one was so good, funny and relatable. I just had to see it that many times.

7. Photography
Going out and taking photos gets me into this creative vibe that I like a lot. Being creative in general can get me in a pretty good mood. Whenever I edit videos I get so happy, because I'm working on something that makes me excited and when it turns out good I get so proud of the end result. All I'm trying to say is whack out a paint brush and live a little.

8. Dancing
I used to do ballet when I was in my teens and although I was kind of sucky and I don't do it anymore, I did like it. Same goes for learning all the Beyoncé and High School Musical dances when I was little. I think I look good whilst doing it but we all know that's not the case. A girl can dream to be as sassy as Queen B right?

9. Binge-watching Netflix
Sometimes this does the opposite for me, but I'm actually quite proud of myself when I finish a season in a day. Others might see it as a waste of time and when you think about it, it is. I do love seeing new shows on Netflix though so a cosy day/night in bed is the perfect thing for me. You just get lost in a different world that you forget your own problems for a bit.

10. Have a massive clear-out
Cleaning may seem like the task on your to-do list that you don't want to do, but after it's done you will feel so much happier. I love the look of an empty floor and the smell of fresh lemon/eucalyptus or whatever it is that I'm using to clean. 100% worth the sweat.

These are the ten things that usually put me in the happiest of moods. I know see that cuddling dogs and isn't on it, which it totally should, but 10x just looks nicer than 11x things you know. If you ever feel bad, put on your favourite song, cuddle a fluffy dog and shake it off whilst stuffing your face with fresh baked cookies. You'll feel a lot better.

What makes you instantly feel happy?
