Happy 2015!

I mean, really, it's 2015!! 

I do get like this every January, you know, excited but 'nervous', anyone else with me?

Anyway, yesterday, at approximately 12.30, there I was, in bed scrolling through my Instagram feed when I stumbled across a post from my lovely friend Erika. She has posted a photo with the #Day100, part of the #100HappyDay challenge.

For those of you who haven't got a clue what i'm on about, the #100HappyDay challenge is where you post a picture that makes/made you happy that day, for 100 days in a row. It can literally be anything - a picture of shoes you own/swooning over, an inspirational photo or quote, magazines, a great night out with friends, family or that special someone.... 

Unlike the 71% of  people have taken up this challenge and have failed, due to 'lake of time', my fabulous friend was not one of them. For 100 days she posted a whole bunch of incredibly cute, and tres chic pictures on her instagram.

When I asked her what she got out of it, she said the main thing was a simple reminder of how lucky she is to have the life she has, and the amazing feeling that smallest things can give you pleasure.

This got me thinking, how in this bumpy road called life we are all guilty of forgetting how things could really/have been worse (guilty as charged!) but by simply taking a few minutes out of our super-busy days to remember this, well it really doesn't cost a thang!

So yes, you've guessed it, i've decided I am going to take up the #100HappyDays Challenge. 

Today was my first day:

So keep an eye on my instagram: Shoe_na for my #100HappyDays photos.

So, there you go. I don't plan on giving up and if anyone is up for taking on this challenge with me, then please let me know.

Eeek. Wish me luck!
