Happiness Project- 5 Happy Things

This week is proving to be a busy and stressful one, with three deadlines all looming this week, I've been in a state of worry almost constantly, and it's only Tuesday!

So what better time to take a quick study break to reflect on 5 things which have made me happy in the past week:

1. After spending days slogging over my books in the library, I handed in my first piece of assessed written work of final year. Submitting work is always such a great feeling. Even though you have no idea how you've done, it feels like handing the baton on over and saying 'Here you go, I've done my hardest, now it's all up to you!'

The Happiness Project- Things Which Have Made Me Happy This Week

You're never fully dressed without a smile.

I've been thinking about happiness, and what makes me happy, a lot recently.
Due to this, and on the recommendation of a few people, I've decided to start writing a weekly happiness post. Inspired by one of my favourite bloggers weekly '10 things that've made me happy this week' post, I'm going to write a post with 5 things which have made me smile, giggle and generally appreciate life in the past week. Some of things will be small, some will be bigger, but they will all have the shared quality of inducing happiness.

Sefton Park Bonfire Night

"Remember, remember the fifth of November, gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason, why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot."

Bonfire night is my second favourite holiday, after Christmas of course. It is the time of year when you really know autumn has hit us, and winter is well on its way. Everyone gathers together in the crowd, warming our fingers with mulled wine and gazing in to the sky in anticipation.

Real Food Market at Southbank Centre

London is a dream world for foodies. Being such a multicultural city, London boasts pretty much every cuisine in the world, tightly crammed into the bustling streets of the city. 

If you want a proper foodie venture, a real food market is the place to go.

James and I hotfooted down to Southbank on Friday, where the Real Food Market had been set up, right by the river. 

The market is a showcase of 40 stalls of producers, celebrating and supporting local businesses and start-ups. Our research had promised us the very best of fresh food and the most creative vendors on the street food scene, and we were far from disappointed.

I know you are all dying to sample the best of street food, so let's delve in!
