My Happy Place!

Hi there, today I'm sharing a few of the things that make me happy!I was tagged by the lovely Suzie, from Itch to Stitch to play this fun game, please visit her she has a really great blog!Focusing on whatever makes you truly happy and really appreciating those aspects of your life, evokes those happy feelings again!! So it really is a game that we would all feel so much better for playing! I just adore knowing what other gals happy things are don't you?

Number 1. had to be this bubble gum pink scooter, no I don't own one, but  just dreaming of flying around Italy on this scooter and stopping at an occassional Gelatri for a marscapone ice-cream makes me feel very happy!Well a girl can dream can't she!

At number 2 sorry! I'm still on the subject of ice-cream, I could not resist! Ben and Jerry's ethical and very delicous flavours with a huge fun factor, who could resist it's power to brighten even the darkest day?!! All it takes is a little spoon, a little effort and a very short space of time!Delicous and curently I believe you can win another one of my favourites with every tub of chunky monkeyMr Kippling bag!

At number 3, colour makes me very happy, it inspires me, gives me energy and confidence, soothes my soul on a weary day and evokes memories of favourite places, whats your favourite colour? I particularly love orange and wearing silver as you would white in summer, as it reflects light onto the face and is soo flattering! 

At number 4, this might seem a little strange, but it's a dish called Toad in the Hole,basically pancake batter with sausages,making this dish always makes me happy as it is one of the dishes my husband and I always made together and enjoyed eating when we first met!If you have eaten it I really recomend it!

At number 5, its denim worn in new and exciting ways, particularly summer weight denium which is much lighter than standard denium, I love this range by ethical company Tree Hugger!I have also fallen for the charms of denium treggings great for those like myself that have less than perfect knees!

At number 6 I have a beautiful large green amber ring that my husband bought me for valentines day, when we were staying in the Lake district together, it makes feel happy every time I wear it! Reminding me of that day. There is somthing really special about knowing that amber is thousands of years old, I love all the bubbles and light in the resin and the colour makes me feel at peace!

At number 7, I bought this pair of Fly ankle boots on a recent trip to Edinburgh and adore the clever hybrid of design elements- Edwardian spats coupled with a chelsea boot with a zig zag sole!So comfy they feel like slippers after a full days shopping and look amazing with dresses or treggings!

At number 8 I'm a big fan of Alessi watches Italian designers of Kitchen ware, I love there simple sophistication, clever use of materials (such as rubber) and quirky design elements such as the rim around the watch being raised above the face!When you wear somthing everyday and adore wearing it, thats great happiness value!!

At number 9 my phone make me very happy because it allows me to say in touch with my friends, which is so important particularly when life gets hectic, great invention the phone; I think sometimes we gals, forget that with the accesibility of emailing and texting! Recently Lilly Allen, declared she was taking a break from her work and pulling the plug on Twitter and Facebook in an effort to spend  more real, rather than virtual time with her friends, I commend her for that!!  

Finally at number 10 music makes me very happy! I could not imagine me life without it! My son plays in a band and plays the guitar and drums, I love hearing him sing in the morning to his guitar now that he is recovered from his head injury!! I love listening to music in the car and letting all my cares and worries fall away as I move through time and space and I  get such a buzz from going to live concerts!My New Years resoloution is to go to alot more live concerts! Sxx

Now I'm tagging these lovely bloggers to share their 10 favourite things that make them happiest
