7 In Life

5 Happy Things

1/ The sunny sunny weekends we’ve been having lately! Alex and I went for a long walk through my local park and along the River Thames which was heavenly.
2/ Hot yoga. I have no motivation to go running in the cold but it’s so nice to warm up and stretch. I think I’m a convert.
3/ WE MADE SUSHI! And it actually tasted good! Not so much when I ate 100000 pieces for supper and then again for lunch the next day but it’s something I want to make again and experiment with.
4/ Christmassy nails, that is all.
5/ Lighting my Muji Cinnamon and Mandarin candle whilst catching up on The Missing in bed. I’m three episodes behind so I avoided social media like the plague when the finale came out. What is going to happen!? (Don’t answer that).

Not pictured: a fun send off for a good friend who is moving abroad 🙁 , a catch up over pizza and wine with one of my besties, spending time with my family, and THE best coconut, cashew and parsnip cake (I hate parsnips but this is amazing).

What has made you happy in the past week?

    What a lovely list! I adore sushi but have never made it myself – was it difficult? Oooh…the Missing *won't say anything* – will be interested to hear what you think of the final episode!! xxx

    No it was honestly so easy! You just need a sushi mat (really cheap from Asian shops), sushi rice and seaweed sheets. Then whatever you want to put inside.

    Ahh I watched the last Missing last night and thought it was interesting but slightly frustrating (I basically just wanted them to be reunited haha 🙂 x

    Awesome list, made me happy just reading it 🙂 Oh, the homemade sushi, the festive nail polishes, and the candle (I'm checking it out next time I see Muji, sounds so good)…!

    You should, they have great flavours and are really affordable compared to most nice candles.
