11 Happy Things

Helen did this tag and tagged anyone who wanted to do it so I thought I would give it a go and also take the opportunity to tell you more about me!

In no particular order, my 11 happy things -

1. Maz, my boyfriend.

This is a picture taken on holiday. We were about to go to the beach thus I have no makeup on. I don't know why I feel the need to defend my naked face, I just do ;) I chose this picture because I love him in it!
We've been together nearly 3 years now and would get married tomorrow if we could :)

Completely off the subject - look at my nails! They're bare... this was before the obsession began!

2. My cats, Bobo and Barnaby.

To say I love these guys would be an understatement. I adore them and spoil them rotten. Bobo is 2 and a half and Barnaby is 3 months.

3. My family and friends.

I'm not going to put any pics on of them as I'm unsure how they'd feel about me putting them out there like that! I have an amazing family who I've come to appreciate more and more in the last few years and my friends are fantastic too!

4. Books.

I love to read. I've been known to read about 10 books a week before(thank goodness for libraries). I could read all day and all night. My favourite authors are Harlen Coben and Nicci French.

5. Ghost Whisperer.

It's my favourite program. I absolutely love it. I couldn't tell you why. I just do.

6. Urban Decay.

About 3 years ago I went to London and one of my friends told me to check out Urban Decay in Selfridges. It was love at first sight and I've been addicted ever since.

This is a picture of some of my eyeshadow -

7. Chocolate.

How predictable hey! I almost didn't include this but then thought 'who am I kidding'! There's not much I can say about this. I LOVE CHOCOLATE!

8. Nail polish.

My addiction grows by the day. At least it's less expensive than my makeup addiction though! I love trying all the different colours and love that I have to keep upgrading my storage to bigger things!

9. The blogging community.

Ever since starting my blog I have loved getting to know everyone. I love looking at everyone else's blogs and I love getting comments on mine. My first port of call when I turn on my laptop is always my dashboard! I tried YouTube for a while but it wasn't for me at all. This is so much nicer and friendlier. I hope to carry on making new friends and learning new things!

10. My hometown.

I know it's sad but I really love my hometown of Newbury! I grew up there and lived there until Dec 07. When I lived there I didn't appreciate it but now I live in Manchester I really miss it! Going back for visits to see friends and family is my favourite thing to do. I am definitely a small town girl. I am happy where we are at the moment but it's not permanent and we will be back in Newbury within the next 3 years. I want my children to grow up there too :)

11. Glitter.

I couldn't not have it could I! :) People think I'm joking but I do love glitter! I would bathe in it if I could. Wherever I go glitter seems to follow. I leave it everywhere even when I don't think I've used any! One of my friends has ocd over it and hates it being everywhere so I try really hard when going to hers not to have any on my anywhere... she still finds some. I think I sneeze it.

That's it! I hope you've liked reading some stuff about me that isn't really np related!

I tag anyone who wants to do it!

Kae said...

I liked reading your happy things list! You are such a sweetie pie :)

Rebecca said...

Aw I like reading these! That pic of you and your boyf is cute :)

Talking of sneezing glitter... one night when I was in my 1st year of uni, I thoguht it would be fun to dare some friends to snort random stuff. After they snorted smash (the dry potato stuff - haha!) i made them snort some glitter. It was the funniest thing I've seen! They were blowing glitter out their noses for ages!

A big YAY for the Newbury massive! Just think, by the time you move back, we'll have a cinema and a new shopping centre!

I've been trying to suss out if I recognise you (you know Newbury, 20,000 people, five surnames) and I don't think I do. It'd be fun to add you on Facebook and see who we've got in common though.

And a big tick to all your other happy things!

Thanks for doing the tag. I love getting to know more about my favorite bloggers. Finally another Ghost Whisperer lover! I am freaked out about the crazy story line of her husband! I wish he wasn't inhabiting that other guy's body. Why couldn't they have come up with another story line for poor Jim! I used to read like crazy. Since I'm on the computer so much I don't do it much. I just keep making lists of books I'd like to read.

Thank you everyone!

Rebecca - I can't believe you made them snort glitter!! hahahah, that must have been so funny! You shouldn't have told me that time I'm drinking I may think it's a good idea! :)

Helen - yeah, Newbury is changing so much! Even coming back every couple of months there seem to be a million changes.
I've been trying to decide if I recognise you too. I don't think I do but we're bound to have some people in common.. Newbury is always like 'oh I know her, she went out with my best mate's sister's friend's cousin'!! We should definitely add each other on fb.

Lucy - I know what you mean about Jim! When I was watching it I was like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Glad to have found a fellow ghost whisperer lover!!

Alice said...

Hi, just found your blog :)

I was wondering where did you get the case from, where all your Urban Decay shadows are kept?

Glittermillie's Nails and Sparkle said...

Hi Alice,

Hope you like my blog!
I got that UD case from ebay. I saw it on the UD website but they wouldn't ship here so I hunted it down. I actually have 2.
Unfortunately UD have stopped doing it now though so pretty impossible to get.
