Aaaah, February, you’re a cute month! It’s pretty tiny, meaning rent and bills seem to come around a lot quicker, but there’s still quite a lot of reasons why we should be happy it’s here and we’ve said goodbye to January!
01. It’s getting brighter! I’m writing this at 4.30 in the afternoon and it’s still light outside! A month or so ago it would be dark over an hour ago, so it’s a sign spring is on it’s way!

02. Valentines day. We’ve already established that I go a little cray cray over Valentines. It might not be too cheery a day if you’re single, but to me it’s a day to spend with anyone you love, whether that be a boyfriend, family, or just a bunch of good mates!

03. Planning holidays and trips. This month some of my friends and I have planned another little trip away renting a barn out for the weekend. We’re off in April, but February has given me something to plan and look forward to.
04. Making moolah! This isn’t really that subjective to February, but I’ve been doing really well on my ebay store in the past couple recent months. It makes me really happy to see work pay off and that people are really appreciating what they have been buying off me. 
05. Reaching milestones. I’ve hit a couple of really big milestones at the start of this month that I’m so happy about. First up came hitting 2000 followers on my instagram, and then along came 1000 GFC followers on my blog! I’m spending this month feeling so happy about that, as well as running a little giveaway to say thankyou!

What is making you happy this month?

    I'm so happy it's staying bright longer now, I can walk back from class now in a slightly lighter shade of pitch black! Everything seems just that little bit more lovely this month after dull and dreary January πŸ™‚

    This is a lovely blog post!

    I booked a holiday to Prague for March so February is just a little step before jetting off!

    I'm glad that you're having such a good month!

    I'm quite keen for Vday this year because me and my boyf are going out with my parents, and we usually never do anything so that's going to be nice.

    I'm also planning out my placement for my masters, and the ball seems to be rolling on a lot of things!
