the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
April seems like it had a lot going on when I glance over these highlights but it didn’t feel like it passed by as quickly as some other months. On a whole I was quite emotional, there were moments of pure happiness but also moments of frustration. I am proud of myself for getting back into a proper routine with the blog and in general and hopefully May will feel less frenzied.
Here’s what made me smile in April:
April 1: Achieved everything I wanted today. Also caught up with friends I haven’t seen in a while and got to wear my bomber jacket.
April 2: Used FaceTime for the first time and quite enjoyed it. Too shy to use the front facing camera though.
April 3: Leftover butter chicken for lunch!
April 4: Leona Lewis liked my birthday tweet to her.
April 5: Cuddles are the best way to start a morning. I never was much of a cuddler until I met my boyfriend.
April 6: A picture and Post-It note signed by Vanessa White arrived all the way from London!
April 7: Cadbury Creme Eggs are SO GOOD. Probably my favourite Easter eggs.
April 8: Kind words and support are always appreciated.
April 9: Brave by MAC is becoming a lipstick I wear a lot!
April 10: Got to play Easter bunny and deliver chocolate to my boyfriend and his parents.
April 11: Lazy morning spent in bed.
April 12: Being called gorgeous as a term of endearment always makes me smile!
April 13: Random acts of kindness remind me why I smile. An action or words can make someone’s day.
April 14: Listened to ABBA for the first time in ages whilst jigsawing.
April 15: Certain days are tough but getting through is all that matters. It’s also nice to have people looking out for you.
April 16: Sleeping in, Mini Eggs and catching up on TV shows made for an enjoyable day.
April 17: Applied makeup on a day off for the first time in a while and was really pleased with how it turned out.
April 18: Lazy, chilled day with my boyfriend. We also laughed a lot.
April 19: Found a sparkly rock. (It cut me when I tried to clean it though).
April 20: Hit 500 posts on the blog tonight!
April 21: I have waited years to be able to listen to a new Steps album and today is the day!
April 22: The mid-season finale of Pretty Little Liars was so good!
April 23: Pink sparkly eyeshadow. Enough said.
April 24: Everything about today was good: I got to wake up with my boyfriend, I enjoyed my sandwich for lunch/dinner and I had a sing-a-long to some of my favourite music.
April 25: I mention him a lot but I am so lucky to have such a kind boyfriend. I always miss him when I have to leave.
April 26: Had a lovely day shopping – it’s been ages since I had a good shopping trip!
April 27: I do love trying new lipsticks for the first time.
April 28: Had such a good sleep tonight.
