Weekly Recap #8 | Things That Made Me Happy

things that made me happy #8

Hello beauties!

I hope all of you having a great weekend so far. “Weekly Recap | Things That Made Me Happy” is another series where I will be sharing all the things that made me happy. My goal is to spread some happiness and gratitude of little or big things that are happening in my life, and encourage others to share their happy/grateful things of the week.

Sometimes all it takes is gentle reminders of things that make us grateful or appreciative. I mean, we live in a world full of senseless violence, poverty, famine, and tragedy – reflecting on the positive, I find, makes me open my eyes a bit more to appreciate the little things…Don’t you agree?

Feel free to share things that made you happy this week. Here are mine ♡

Trying A New Starbucks Drink “Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato”
I’ve heard so many people bragging about this drink that I just needed to try it for myself. Even though I’m not a huge fan of coconut milk, I found this drink very tasty. It’s a perfect drink for summertime and it’s perfectly blended. You can read my review about Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato here.

Spending A Day at Anna Marie Island
We spend Saturday at Anna Marie Island with my husband and my youngest daughter, Annabella. It’s about 30min drive from where we live. It was a perfect day at the beach, the view was mesmerizing.

Having Picnic At The Beach
We decided to grab lunch before heading to Anna Marie Island and take it to the beach with us. There is nothing better then a picnic at the beach!

Updating All My Old Blog Posts
OMG…it was a long way coming. It took me 6 months to update my old posts, but I’m so glad I did it. For those who maybe thought of doing it, do it! It will bring a lot more traffic to your blog.

New Laptop
My husband bought me a new laptop and I’m so happy to receive such a gift! I’ve been using either my husband’s computer or my daughter’s laptop when they weren’t. It was very hard to catch up on all my blogging stuff. I used my phone 90% of a time. But, I’m glad I can give my phone a break now.

Receiving July 2016 Edition of Birchbox
This is my 3rd Birchbox. I’m very happy with the subscription and beauty products I have been receiving. I definitely get excited every month about receiving a box, especially not knowing what’s in it. I’ve been writing a review every month about all the products and will advise you to check it out. Birchbox Beauty Box | May 2016 Edition & Birchbox Beauty Box | June 2016 Edition. All opinions are my own.
