The simple things in life!

Being down is one of the worst feelings, when life just seems to be going wrong and you can't seem to muster up the energy to do the things you want to do. Sometimes we just take life too seriously whether it is family issues or money troubles, boy troubles  to work troubles - and it reaaally does wear us down! Sometimes you just need to step back, appreciate the simple things and do something which is going to cheer you up. I often find when I am stressed or down that I don't make time for these things, and I always regret not doing so. There are so many simple things which cheer me up and make me happy! 

This post is much more lifestyle than usual but I wanted to do something to cheer me up! Today I took outfit pictures, spend ages taking them for them to all look terrible, and it gave me an idea! Although I couldn't do the outfit post, I could do a post of things which make me feel better! I hope you enjoy a couple of the things which cheer me up when I'm feeling a bit like life has got the better of me - the simple things in life!

Friends Well this is simple, they're always there, always fun and always able to make you laugh! A good group of friends really does make all the difference! 

Family Although my family drive me insane, I can always count on my brothers to cheer me up, my nan to make me smile or my brothers children to make me laugh.
Shopping This may be controversial, but for me money sometimes does buy happiness! Shopping must release something in my body as I sure feel a lot better after! 
Perfume My perfume of choice is Chanel Chance, but it's just the smell which really lifts up my mood!

Travelling Booking something up - a city break, a festival (yes i do mean travelling in England too!), a long holiday - always raises my mood! 

Looking at old pictures Pictures of me as a kid, when life seemed so simple! I love looking at those to remind me of all the good memories I had! 
Lipstick I can be a typical girl when it comes to this, but a new lipstick really does make me feel great or even just wearing it! Red lips aaah..
Suede heels I have such an addiction to these, pretty much all of my heels are suede. Sometimes I just put them on to walk around the house...sad yes, makes me feel better though! 

MIKA - I see you The best song in the world to make you feel better, whenever I feel down I put this on! MIKA is such a feel good artist. 

Gossip Girl Blair, Chuck, Serena and Nate are bound to put a smile on your face, if not it will boost some motivation into you! Living in NYC in a Manhatten penthouse if I work hard? Well okay then. 
My MacBook and blogging Now I am back into blogging, it really does make me feel happier! A quick break from writing those essays (sigh) and writing about something I really love makes me feel great! 
Going on long walks Simple pleasures. I love going on country walks, when it is nice and crisp! You really cannot beat it.
Mochas As someone who hated coffee until I discovered these, I have no become obsessed. A nice hot mocha always makes me feel more alive and warm inside! 

to do lists This is an odd one, but making lists really destresses me and cheers me up. A list is so much easier to follow than lots of ideas in my head!

Spending time with my brothers My brothers literally mean so much to them and when it is us together we always have a laugh. I don't see my older brother much, but he's always making jokes when I do!
making pretend scenarios with my best friend A good imagination is great, and when I'm with my friend Lily we literally come up with all kinds of plans. Some will happen, some probably won't but it is so much fun! 

What kind of things cheer you up when you're down?
