I’ve had this post in the notes on my phone for a while now, adding things to it as soon as I experience something new that makes me happy that I’d like to add in the post. I keep all my blog post ideas in the notes on my phone, so it’s an easy way to just delete them once they’ve been written. I also categorize them into months but that’s for another post altogether (categorizing… that’s one thing that clearly makes me happy!) Then I saw in March, one of my favourite bloggers Hello Bexa actually did a post more or less the same. Great minds think alike, I say. She’s cool with me doing a similar type of post so here we are, my usually miserable self about to share 50 little things that make me happy!
I’ve seen this A-Z of me post scattered around the blogosphere quite a lot recently; and I’m not surprised. It’s a lovely, simple post to let people know a little more about you. I pinched the idea off of Fraser’s Fun House (who’s blog is fantastic, hint hint mummy and lifestyle bloggers, go and check it out!) and thought it would be a good idea to do as my follower count has grown substantially since the last time I did any sort of “get to know me” or “facts about me” type post which have been lost in the ether by now. So, let’s get going. A-Z of me and please excuse any of these which are ridiculous because chances are I couldn’t think of anything beginning with that letter.
I know Christmas has been and gone but it’s never a wrong time of the year to support small businesses and buy unique and personal gifts for those you love! We all have birthdays after all! I’ve always found personal gifts the best; to give and receive. Something that no one else in the world is going to have. I also love supporting small businesses when the time comes for gift buying, whether that’s Mother’s Day, Christmas or a birthday. Being a small business myself (albeit not one that sells gifts), I know how important the support is. Not just the purchases but the word of mouth, the positive feedback and even the shout outs and retweets.
Did you recently get a pet dog? If you answered yes, then you’re in for a wonderful time. A dog is a great addition to any family, as they provide good company both for adults and children. However, if you want your dog to fully enjoy living in your home, you should get him the right toys and accessories.
Hi all! Continuing with my week of guest posts whilst I’m away on my holidays, today I have a post from Ashley at Blonde Fashion Happy with some tips and tricks on keeping your doggies cool when summer arrives! It’s super important to keep your dogs healthy when it’s super hot out and some of these are really great ideas!
You know lately, I’ve been feeling out of touch with the human world. Like, no offence mum if you’re reading this but humans just aren’t doing it for me at the moment and I’d much rather spend my time alone, in peace and solitude, with just my dog for company because let’s face it, dogs are better than humans. Humans suck, actually. And these are my reasons why I do, in fact, prefer dogs to humans.
Last month saw the start of the brand new series of Paul O’Grady’s, ‘For The Love of Dogs’. I don’t know about you but I absolutely adore that show and haven’t missed a single episode since series 1. Paul O’Grady, fellow dog lover, heads into Battersea Cats and Dogs Home in the UK to give us, the viewers, a little insight into the workings of the rescue centre and also the sometimes very grisly background of some of the poor, unfortunate dogs that walk into the centre every single day. As well as extremely informative and eye-opening, the show can often be heart-wrenching and I’ve been known to
shed a tear sob uncontrollably at a handful of cases Paul has worked with on the show.
