9 Things That Make Me Happy

Something that is good to do once in a while is think about the things that make you happy, it’s good to appreciate the things and people that are around you. I swear there isn’t enough self-love and thinking about the things around you, sometimes you don’t realise how much you love something until it’s gone.

Today I thought it would be nice to share what makes me happy, there’s a variety of things that if I didn’t have or were gone from my life, I would definitely miss!

Motorsports – I love Motorsports! I’m sure it’s pretty obvious that I love Motorsports, I’m always chatting about it, as well as writing about it here on An Ocean Glimmer. There are soo many reasons I love Motorsports, I actually wrote about these reasons here, so I won’t go into too much detail. I love the community, the adrenalin and most of all, meeting the drivers you watch on TV.

Friends & Family – I wouldn’t be here without the people around me, my friends and family, I’ve been through a lot with them and it’s nice to know they’re still around. It’s hard at the moment as I no longer live with my parents and sisters, so life now is a bit strange and definitely quiet! It’s definitely been a new experience for it, it’s nice to go back home and spend time with them, especially with Biscuit.

Blogging – I don’t think I could write this post without including blogging, since starting An Ocean Glimmer back in 2016 it’s truly become a massive passion of mine. I wouldn’t still be here today blogging if I didn’t enjoy it and if it wasn’t rewarding, yes I don’t get over 1k views each month, but I’m still learning and I reach milestones that are impressive for myself. Also, the community is amazing and super supportive.


Chocolate – I adore chocolate, anything from Cadbury’s, Galaxy, Aero, I love it all. With loving chocolate, it definitely makes for an easy present, chocolate has always been a big love of mine and it definitely makes me happy. Especially when Yasmine brings me some home after work, it always cheers me up and she knows this as well.

Yasmine – I have been with Yasmine since 2013, we’ve been through thick and thin together, I wouldn’t change anything in the world not to be with her. There’s been a lot that’s gone on but we’re strong and we’ve managed to get through it. We’ve been on three holidays abroad together and visited many different car shows together, I wouldn’t want to share those memories with anyone else.


Bubble Baths – There’s nothing better than running water for a bath, chucking a bath bomb in and having it full of bubbles. I’ve really been enjoying bubble baths and bath bombs recently, it’s super relaxing and allows you to wind down. I’ve had a couple of stressful weeks at the moment, so bubble baths are perfect to change this. There’s definitely nothing better than this.

Reading – I’ve always been a massive fan of reading and it definitely makes me happy, when you’re having tough times, it’s perfect to escape to a different world for a couple of hours. I love reading all kinds of books, I used to read loads when I was younger but now I just don’t see to have the time! Recently though, I think I’ve managed well to find some time. Definitely, think being a part of the Blogger Book Nook helps!


Taking Photos – Photos are amazing, aren’t they? Sometimes you are able to capture a thousand words with them, it’s always a great way to remember memories. I don’t think I could imagine a world without photos, I swear I take a different photo each day! With photos, you are able to share them with friends and family, as well as displaying them around your home.

WinterWinter is definitely my favourite season, not just because it’s my birthday and Christmas. There’s just something about Winter, I love snuggling up and watching movies all night long. This year, Winter for me has definitely been a little different, with the arrival of snow! This is something that we hardly see in the South West. Also how amazing is it coming home and just jumping into your PJs to snuggle up with a film.


Well, there we are! Those are just some of the things that make me happy, there are a couple more things, but I would be here all day. What’s one thing that makes you happy? Let me know in the comments.
