Life According To Instagram #2

Following my last 'Life According To Instagram' post, comes this months filled with things that made me happy, I love writing about life in general for a change instead of reviewing a product, and what could be bad about reminding yourself of the things that made you smile recently?
If you know me well, or have read my blog for a long time and are aware of my circumstances with mental health, you'll know that it's a pretty big deal for me to say I feel happy, which is why I'm making a blog post about it, because even if nobody else enjoys reading it, it's here for me to look back on.

The first really exciting thing was putting up the Christmas tree! Christmas is my favourite time of the year and I always get super excited and my mood seems to lift a lot just knowing I have something amazing to look forward to. A lot of my presents have been delivered this week, and I've been signing for them all, which has made me even more eager for the day to arrive. This year I took on the task of putting up the tree and decorating it all by my self, which I got really tired of half way through once the novelty died off, but I think I did a fab job and the living room looks super festive and feels cosy and happy. The theme of the tree is always white and silver, mixed in with my Disney store Disney princess decorations, you might know I was lusting after the Ariel ornament this year...and guess what? I got it three days after and she looks gorgeous as you can see below!
The same day the tree was put up I got my first Christmas card, which was obviously from my parents and of course it was Disney themed. It's Frozen with a huge Elsa on the front and a really cute verse is written inside which relates to the movie, it's really glittery and childish which is right up my street.

Last, but certainly not least is my boyfriend Callum. I've spent a wonderful few days with him recently and he's quickly become my rock, he's been my best friend and boyfriend, in-fact, he's been a good friend for about three years now, we both have our problems but everything is halved and made so much easier and better together, I've just loved every second I've spent with him, my jaw is usually aching by the end of the day from laughing and smiling so much. I generally don't think I would of made it through the past few months without him being there for me, he knows me inside out and for the first time I feel really content and i'm not at all paranoid or worried, he's the first person I've trusted 110% and that's such a wonderful feeling because I never thought that would be possible. For the first time in forever I don't feel pointless/worthless/useless because I know he needs me as much 
as I need him, and again that's lifted my mood levels. 

Let me know what made you happy recently!
