The Happy List #24


liberty flower market july 2017

Hi! So this week has been really, really great - I feel like I say this every week but that's no bad thing. Obviously there's bad moments that happen too but there's no point on dwelling on them because the way I see it I'm only here now because of somebody's last amazing act on earth. I plan to live for both of us and literally every moment for me is so exciting because I shouldn't be here now. If I were to spend the rest of my time being negative and unappreciative how ungrateful would that be? The chance I've been given is so rare and precious and it's a shame that some people just don't understand that. So I'll keep on being super happy about life because I'm so lucky and by celebrating life I'm celebrating my donor. It's a shame some people are completely missing the point and think I'm showing off or whatever but never mind. I know I've mentioned it before on Twitter but just thought I'd clear it up in case I'm coming across as braggy haha. On to the happy things! 

1. Being on the TV and radio. On Tuesday I was discussing organ donation with Sally Johnson, who is the Director of Organ Donation and Transplantation, on some local BBC radio stations and then the Channel 5 news in the evening. It was all live so I was totally out of my comfort zone but I just hope I helped them out in some way and didn't let anybody down! I still can't bring myself to watch it though, there's a reason I don't do YouTube haha! What an experience though and everyone was super nice. It's bloody fab that 50,000 people are alive in the UK today thanks to organ donation and the amazing selflessness of others but the sad fact is on average three people a day due to lack of donors. Please, please consider signing the register and having that conversation with your family to let them know your wishes.  

2. The best bargain ever. Ok well what I bought was still expensive but not compared to what they should have been! I have a post coming up on this so keep your eyes peeled. 

3. Charity shop haul. I always buy my books in charity shops but never really considered looking at the clothes but I found some right gems! I didn't try it all on so some of it doesn't suit me so I'll be donating them back but as everything was only like £1.50 it doesn't matter and it all goes to the British Heart Foundation - a cause that is, well, close to my heart! But I'll be showing you what I'm keeping soon. 

4. Time alone. My parents are on holiday (but back tomorrow yayayay) and while I've missed them I've been using the opportunity to Get Shit Done as I have no distractions (my mama and me always end up going out for lunch or shopping haha!) Mainly blogging stuff, I *think* I'm kinda going back to the kind of outfit pics I used to do but I get bored easily so that may change soon.

5. Liv and Lucy video. Absolute dream team! Two of my favourite bloggers made a vid on Olivia's channel, check it out here because it's so bloody good. Who doesn't want to see inside the wardrobe of Lucy Williams?  

6. Shoreditch night out. I couldn't stay for long and well done me for not getting silly drunk but still had the most fun! I thought it'd be awky as I only knew one person but it was actually great. We went to the Nomadic Community Gardens which is a really nice place to hang out on a summer eve.

7. Tidy room. Like it's so tidy I love it! I had a huge clearout and it's just lovely having so much space. Goodbye floordrobe!

8. Tickets for The Killers. They're a band I've loved since I was like 11 so I'm mega excited, you have no idea. It's not until November but I'm counting down the days!

9. £5 dream dress. I'm not sure I can pull it off or if it's a bit Halloweeny but in my head when worn with a leather jacket and long boots it's a bit Kate Moss/Florence Welch-esque if you squint hard enough and use your imagination haha. I've not bought off of Boohoo since I was a young teen but they had some surprisingly nice things onsite. I got the black (obvs) but it's also in khaki. Available here

10. Alexa Chung and me becoming besties. Ok not true but she liked a pic on insta and I think that makes us BFF's now (just let me have my moment please haha!)

How was your week? Was it fun? Tell me what the best thing about it was!
