The Happy List

Happy Monday!

I am so pumped to start this week as it marks the almost-end of the first constructive month of 2016. January has been a roller coaster ride of making new plans, cleanup of old (no longer needed stuff!) and fresh starts.
With a schedule so hectic, I was a bit stressed and excited at the same time. This is why I am making a list of the things that cheered me up in the past week.

// Cotton candy skies in winter evenings. I love seeing & capturing skies so much. They are mesmerizing and a blessing up from heaven.

// My phone. Alright, I am obsessed with gadgets. Whenever I see a new product launched in the market, I check it just for the sake of checking. Though my phone is above all - it's a beauty, helping hand and a pack of wonderfulness shaped up as a phone. From making notes to completing sums, I use it for everything.

// Accounting. I am sure it wouldn't have made it to my happy list a little while ago because I abhorred the current lessons that were included in my course. But I started it last week with a determination to complete it anyways - it turned out to be an interesting assignment.

// My dear books. I wonder what would I do without reading? If I ever had doubts about the magical ability of a book to transport you to another world, I don't doubt it anymore. I'm currently reading The Bastard of Istanbul by Elif Shafak. It's been a great read so far. Shafak's words inspire me immensely. It's a long story and I am sure it would take days to finish it.

// Social media in general. We had #socialboggers chat on Saturday, which turned out to be so engaging and interacting that I was almost squealing with happiness. Instagram is my happy place - all the creative photos and ideas make me so happy.
I had some plans for Pinterest and finally put them together to launch a group board for creative bloggers. I am currently working on it. I will reveal more details soon. It's an engaging project and I can't wait to involve every single creative blogger I know in it.

What are some things topping your happy list these days?

  1. Instagram is definitely my happy place too!
    All the more because you started talking to me on it and kickstarted my blogging.
    If the story in that book is as beautiful as the cover, it must be worth a read indeed. ^^

  2. I have an obsession with skies! I always post sunsets on Instagram, at least once a week ^_^

  3. I really enjoyed the #socialbloggers chat too, and you were a great host!
    And that sky looks so beautiful (which is really impressive, because whenever I try to take a picture of the sky, it never captures the beauty).
    Hope you have a great week x

  4. i've been seeing a lot of these happy lists around the blogosphere lately and i hope everyone keeps sharing, these are so much fun to read! for me atm, the steady wait for snow to arrive, hot chocolate, and pride and prejudice (currently reading and ADORING it, because Lizzy is such a strong protagonist and DARCY *sigh* )

  5. Love the sky picture!! So pretty!
    I haven't heard of The Bastard of Istanbul, it sounds like a good read!

  6. What a great post for when you're feeling down! I like looking at the skies as well, sometimes the colors are surprisingly vibrant too!

    Blair Waldorf definitely wouldn't have let a bad week keep her down either (:

  7. My phone is always my happy place- it's one small thing of endless possibilities!

  8. I'm tickled you put Accounting on there. Many people abhor it.

  9. I love your picture with "what would Blair Waldorf do?" BIG Gossip Girl fan here :)

  10. My new car. Long story. And I LOVE Blair Waldorf. Oh and most importantly my son's smile and my boyfriends support + patience. :) Have a great one and happy 2016 Noor! -Iva

  11. At the top of my happy list? Hmmmm, painting, blogging, food, sleep, my beautiful babies!

  12. Books have made me happy this week too :)

    xoxo, Jenny

  13. Love the idea of happy lists so much! I love the fact that you are so into reading. I really need to get back into finding time to read myself!

  15. Happy to have found your blog ;) But really, happy list right now is good coffee, being back in Australia after seven months of travel, seeing my nieces and nephews grow so much, and my morning run! Also, good to see other accountants with blogs! We've gotten a bad wrap for being boring for far too long!

  16. A good book always brings me into a good mood! Hmm, the happy thing for me this week so far has been coming back to school from winter break to see my friends :D I've missed their craziness so much! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  17. Love this post!! Nice blog dear!!
    Love from www.trangscorner.com {a lifestyle, fashion, beauty, and food blog}

  18. omg, the minute I read "What would Blair do?" on your notebook/planner, I knew I was going to love you. AHAHA, I absolutely love Blair. That show, Sherlock and Castle are my favorite shows!

    I'm with you on all of those things but probably not accounting, mine is more writing/typing/designing as opposed to accounting:)

  19. Instagram is my happy place too. It's especially great when I have nothing to post but still manage to interact a lot. Goes to show that you don't always have to be the "poster" to get more engagement.
