Sometimes I find that people take life a little too seriously, don't get me wrong, a lot of the time we need to take life seriously, when it comes to bills, exam results, arguments etc, they're pretty big serious issues to deal with and we all have to be serious at some point in our life so that's why I've decided that every few weeks I'll do an easy going, light hearted blog post. Something pretty and easy to read. The first one is going to be my favorite things in life, the simple pleasures... Sometimes we need a break and that's why I'm heading off to Greece to relax for a little while (and to eat lots of olives). I want you all to forget about any worries that you may have and think about the simple things in life that make you happy whilst reading this blog post. Have you ever looked at the sky and thought, wow, nature is pretty cool? Yeah it's one of those kind of posts. I've scheduled some posts for y'all whilst I'm at sea but for now I thought I'd leave you with this...
Rain hitting against my window, they should give people this as relaxation therapy, it's so therapeutic.
Nachos, with everything on top, who cares about calories anyway?
Taking my make up off and scraping my hair back from my face and tying it in the ugliest bun
Sitting on top of the hill near my house and watching the sun set.
The country side, it's nice to see grass when I've been at Uni for so long. I am such a country girl.
Fuji Hiro - Leeds, the best yaki soba you will ever eat. I've been here 4 times in a week before, yep, it's really that good.
Seeing the world: board a flight, hop in a car, jump on a boat, see how beautiful the world we live in is. It's pretty cool that we're able to do this when you think about it.
Spring rolls. Those tiny crispy ones from Chinese take aways. We buy a bag of 15 to share and I eat them all.
Wearing your boyfriends jumper (and it drowning you and me loving every minute of trying to pull off the over sized indie look).
Smiling. No one should ever try and stop you from smiling. It takes 43 muscles to frown and 17 to smile.
Abersoch. This place is heaven on Earth.
Ice skating, I fancy myself as a bit of a pro.
Chocolate, particularly dairy milk melted on top of strawberries
Green tea. I have an unhealthy obsession.
Paris. I would happily pack up my life and move there tomorrow.
Grandparents. I dont tell them enough how much I love them.
Ice creams from an old school ice cream van
My boyfriend. He's a good one.
freshly squeezed orange juice
Pasta arribiata. I'm surprised I haven't turned into this spicy red sauce by now, I've tried and tested thousands of this dish.
Aspinal Of London
Being so comfortable around a person that you don't have to be constantly talking all the time, you could sit in complete silence together.
Romance (I am a hopeless romantic, easily the soppiest person that you will ever meet).
The British sea side
Walking through crispy leaves in autumn with your wellies on, I used to love doing this with my Dad.
Breathing cold air out in winter
Theme parks - because it's good to release your inner kid and spend a full day screaming
That unbreakable brotherly sisterly bond
Being active in general, we're lucky to be able to use our limbs
Someone having the ability to make you smile, by doing nothing.
Obviously there are a lot of things that I love, but I just felt like writing a simple, light hearted list full of little things, sometimes, it's the little things that really count.
Do you agree with anything on this list? I'd love you to leave me a comment about what your favorite things in life are, what do you think are the best things in life?
My Grandad has always told me that every day you wake up is a blessing to be alive.
Ciao, love Em x
