100 Happy Days, Day 7 – Twinings Time


Today I thought I’d treat myself to some healthy herbal teas. Regular tea is great but it causes a few problems for me:

– The milk in tea never works well with my body and I tend to just feel sick after drinking it!

– I have to have sugar in my tea which isn’t very good for you at all!

– It can stain your teeth

– You may not realise it, but the caffeine becomes slowly addictive; habits are never good!

So when I saw that Twinings herbal teas were just £1 in my local shop, I kind of splurged! They’re usually pretty expensive so I tend to buy own brand teas.

They’re totally worth it though. The flavours are really strong! My favourite is camomile and honey – it’s really relaxing, just how tea should be!

Don’t get me wrong, I still need a real tea to help me start the day, but these fruity teas make for a lovely mid-day alternative! Smiles all round!


100 Happy Days – Day One

If you haven’t already heard, there are smiles spreading throughout the social world, tagged 100 Happy Days. Can you really be happy for 100 days in a row?


The general idea is to find appreciation in the everyday; the sparkly ground from last nights frost, a hearty home cooked meal or even a hello from your bus driver! Once you’ve found your days happiness, capture it and share your smiles with the world! Maybe your happy moment, will make someone else’s?

It’s a beautiful notion and I think I’m going to do it! I have, in the past, attempted the 365 photo challenge and failed. But by forcing myself to find the good in a day, I hope to find the good in an entire year – no matter what obstacles I might come across!

So here it is – Day One!



A bubble bath – a rarity for me. Nothing beats a bath so hot your skin tingles and candles so sweet they help every muscle in your body relax. Now all I want to do is sleep. And that, my friends, makes me very happy indeed!

Goodnight x
