Us bloggers are just so darn happy all the time, aren't we? I get it, I get it, it can be annoying when everyone else in the world is talking about how great their life is and you're just sitting at your desk powering through a 500 page case study with a loud neighbour hammering on your walls, an empty fridge a migraine from hell and a cat that just peed on your favourite sweater. Ahem. That's the situation happening right now, and before I decided to fall 100% into moody bitch mode I decided to write out a few things to be happy about - something I've found helps me whenever I'm feeling down in the dumps. Then I thought, hey, I have no real story behind what I'm wearing in this outfit (other than a story about how bloody great this jacket from Missguided is) so, why not just throw all of my thoughts on here? 

I like a nice rounded number, and hey, I like a challenge (and I also like procrastinating instead of writing this case study) so I've decided on jotting down 150 things that come to mind that make me feel a little bit better about whatever situation I'm going through. Hopefully - if you're nearing bitch mode like I was - they'll make you feel a bit better too!
