FIND THE HAPPY – Week 7 – Monday 1st June 2015 – Sunday 7th June 2015
Happy #1 – After returning from our holiday in France I booked a couple of extra days off so on Monday I took a little trip into town and bought some bits.
Having a mini shopping spree is always good to make me happy!
I got some new shoes for work from Diechmann, a bargain at £17.99.
I got 2 bathbombs and a bubbleroon from Lush. I got the Avobath bathbomb, May Day bathbomb and The Green bubbleroon. Stopped there, otherwise I would buy everything in the shop!
I also got a few bits from Tiger. I bought a pedometer (used it twice so far, dropped it repeatedly and left it on my desk), some scissor shears and two sets of stamps.
Happy #2 – I had Tuesday off too! I had a big sort out of my wardrobe and filled huge bag to take to the charity shop. I did some work on the blog and watched far too much TLC
(Say Yes to the Dress, Extreme Cheapskates… absolute nonsense crap TV…joyus!)
Happy #3 – Upon my return from France I had an email offering free goodies when you spend money at Clinique… never one to pass up a good deal (or absolute sucker, I am not 100% sure) for a freebie I bought a replacement Moisture Surge Extra Thirst Relief Lotion and a new mascara.
Yes, hefty price-tag (I spent a total of £51.50 on the 2 items!) however look at all the freebies I got!!
While Clinique are quite pricey if you time it right I think you can get the most for your money. I am certainly pleased with this haul! I got a free mini chubby stick, free sample of their perfume “happy”, a free sample of their custom serum and a “bonus time” with a whole bunch of stuff. I got a cute little make up bag which contained generously sized samples of the 7 Day Scrub Cream, Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, All About Eyes eye cream, High Impact Mascara, and also an eye-shadow duo and full size lip stick. Really pleased with all of the items!
Happy #4 – Friday evening saw myself, Jezz and a group of friends frequent our favourite drinking establishment the Lion and Lobster in Brighton. They do the BEST cheesy chips. Fact. They actually do a lot of really seriously good food, however after too many pints of cider, cheesy chips are the way forward.
We drank too much, made a lot of noise, chatted and laughed. It was lovely.
Happy #5 – Had a really lovely relaxing Saturday and Sunday. Jezz did some work and I coloured in my new adult colouring book. This is a thing! If you haven’t realised where have you been?
Watched pretty much an entire series of Third Rock from the Sun, coloured and drank hot drinks. Brilliant. (Apart from the fact I now have a numb patch on my finger where I clearly am not used to holding a pen for so long!).
There are hundreds of books and I spent ages deciding on one, and I chose Enchanted Forest by Johanna Basford. The book is a thing of beauty, the paper is beautiful and thick so there is no fear of pens leaking through and spoiling the design on the other side. The designs are so cute, lots of leaves and castles and animals. I love it! Although I am going to have to buy more green pens, pretty sure I will run those out the quickest. It is very therapeutic, switch of your brain, have a bit of telly/radio on and the hours disappear! It is nice to be away from the computer for a bit.
What have been your happies this week? #findthehappy
