1. Let’s just dive straight in and start with a mega cheesy one that has to be said and is going to make you all need buckets shall we? I’ll admit it, it might be seen to some as being ‘uncool’ but I’m not exactly floating anywhere near the cool category anyway, I love spending time with my family (but not too much concentrated time I’ll add) & my friends are all absolute stars and fabulous humans so time with them is wonderfulIMG_5987.jpg
  2. Dancing / singing/ acting and performing… what a surprise seeing as this is what my life comprises of
  3. Travelling and indulging myself in another culture, visiting picturesque places, stepping out of the confusing bubble that is the English weather, enjoying local cuisine& learning the history of the area through locals.IMG_1478.JPG
  4. Staying in hotels
  5. Hearing the song of the ice-cream truck and running out to buy some FullSizeRender 2.jpg
  6. Deliveries. There’s something just so exciting about opening parcels despite them most probably being presents to yourself so you know exactly what’s inside, but it’s the anticpication of waiting for it to arrive and then unwrapping all the layers to get inside. 
  7. Getting into bed with clean sheets
  8. Having freshly shaven (and moisturised) legs. I know most of us ladies leave our leg hair to grow for as long as we can stand, sometimes it gets so bad that it ends up long enough that we could genuinely be mistaken for our hairier ancestors in a leg-line-up, (especially in the winter) so combatting this is just one of the best feelings! 
  9. Receiving letters (hand written are the best)
  10. Driving with the windows open and sunnies on when the sun’s out (and with music of course)
  11. Finding a bargain. I have to say I think I have quite a knack for sourcing out the great finds amongst the trash that normally make up the ‘sale’ racks & I’m undoubtably the one out of my friends that will deffo come complete with a coupon, I see that as a good thing as I’m doing everyone a favour! 
  12. Being able to translate something someone else says in another language
  13. Hearing old songs that remind me of my childhood
  14. Spending time by myself to reflect, think and find inspirations and self-motivation
  15. Cute summer evenings outside IMG_1446.jpg
  16. Taking part or competing in sports, or every sport team as I did in school.
  17. Receiving invites to events
  18. Random acts of kindness
  19. Smelling freshly-cut grass (even if it does often make me sneeze) 
  20. Receiving a massage

  22. Smelling a scent that reminds me of someone

  24. Using Lush products in the bath
  25. Someone playing with my hair
  26. Photography and managing to capture the perfect photo
  27. Getting new stationary
  28. Watching fireworks. There’s something so magical about setting light to little packages that shoot off and erupt into millions of tiny crystals of colourful light that I just love, especially when it’s on a huge scale& set to tunes. 
  29. Sitting infront of a lit fireplace in winter. Unfortunately in our house we don’t have a proper fireplace so the fake one has to do, not quite the same and it’s minus the logs, but it’s warm? 
  30. Christmas!!- Absolutely everything they there is to do with Christmas from decorating the christmas tree to the glorious food and spending time with family. 
  31. Halloween and Autumn- Why does dressing up still amuse me so much? I’m sure there’s meant to be a cut-off point for this but I’ve definitely not reached it! Halloween parties, layering clothing, autumnal colours, festively decorating the house, Halloween diy, leaves falling etc. IMG_6125.JPG

  40. Giving and buying gifts for others
  41. Seeing improvements in myself and others
  42. The tingly feeling I get when people are doing positively using my items (it’s hard to describe and I don’t know why it happens to me but I like it!) Does anyone else get this? – Note from future Charlotte: I now think this might be some sort of ASMR but I’m not 100% sure!
  43. Lighting a divine-smelling candle
  44. Having my hair cut (Note from Future Charlotte: I had a humoungous hair change stay tuned / visit my Insta to see @clrobinson_ ) 
  45. Sledging in the snow. In other words trekking up a huge hill in the freezing cold & sliding down most often a mud/ sludge hill on whatever mode of transport you can find.

  47. Giving and receiving surprises
  48. Someone smiling at me as we walk past each other or exchanging greetings with a stranger

  50. Playing board and card games, I’m a sucker for a good game 
  51. Watching films and going to the cinema (this normally entails crying at them too) 
  52. Experimenting with makeup & hair, meaning either getting the shocked “what are you doing” face from my Mum or the rather confused “I shouldn’t like this but I do” face, mainly the first tbh.
    (Please excuse that this photo is from during my brows ‘growing out faze’)

  60. Pastel colours FullSizeRender 3.jpg
  61. Creating- Choreographing, imagining, attempting to draw, writing, editing videos or designing
  62. When the weather is perfect for a big day & feeling like you’ve just won the unpredictable English weather lottery (do you still take an umbrella though just incase?)
