Things that make me smile

There are so many things that make me smile, from the ordinary to the extraordinary it's all in there. I adore good graffiti, i love watching birds (sometimes watching us) and other animals, seeing familiar shapes in unexpected objects, good food, a great brew, colourful characters and the list goes on

What makes you smile? Is it one thing in particular or like me, are there many things that make the list.

Here are a few of the things that made me smile recently, i would love to hear what made you smile today

A thing of beauty

Isn't it strange the things that can make us smile.

On my usual bus route into work i pass a large cemetry. It has rows and rows of grey weathered headstones and broken angels standing guard over their sleeping charges.

Usually, such places would have a hush of the sombre about them but this one is different. In the hands of the angels are bright red flowers. I don't know if this is the work of one person or a trend that simply caught on but the effect is really quite magical. I haven't figured out why it makes me smile, maybe it's because it symbolises hope, love, faith or something different altogether. All i know is it genuinely touches me and gives my spirit a lift.

I think I am cured

It seems that working in retail does something to you. I believe i have been well and truly cured of my shopping addiction.

Don't get me wrong, i still like to shop but being around clothes everyday means you really edit out the best bits. Who would have thought it, me without a bag on my arm every week!

Despite my revised shopping habits i still have a huge crush on these Karen Millen boots

Just think of them paired with some skinny jeans and a simple white/ neutral tank. Heaven!
