4 things that made me happy - new lune

4 Things That Made Me Happy.

I know for so many people, this quarantine hasn’t been the easiest mentally and physically. Some people are going back to work slowly whilst some are still stuck at home. There are both good and bad days. If there is something I’ve realised during this pandemic is how little control we have in our lives and that made me appreciate even the smallest things.

In today’s post, I wanted to share with you a couple of things that made me happy the past week or so. I’ve been taking the time to note the little things that make me smile. Let me know what made you happy recently and as always, if you are interested – keep on reading!

Je sais que pour tant de gens, cette quarantaine n’a pas été la plus facile mentalement et physiquement. Certaines personnes retournent au travail lentement tandis que d’autres sont toujours coincées à la maison. Il y a des bons et des mauvais jours. S’il y a quelque chose que j’ai réalisé pendant cette pandémie, c’est le peu de contrôle que nous avons dans nos vies et cela m’a fait apprécier même les plus petites choses.

Dans le post d’aujourd’hui, je voulais partager avec vous deux ou trois choses qui m’ont fait plaisir la semaine dernière. J’ai pris le temps de noter les petites choses qui me font sourire. Faites-moi savoir ce qui vous a rendu heureux récemment et comme toujours, si vous êtes intéressé – continuez à lire!

SOME SMALL VISITORS

For 5 days in a row, 2 fox cubs have been coming in my neighbour’s garden. They have been playing, sleeping and literally making it their new territory! Personally what’s surprising to me is the fact they are coming in broad daylight, I didn’t expect them to roam around in the morning. By lunch time, they go back to their “home” or I hope so.

I never saw a fox in real life up until this happened and I’m not going to lie, they are so cute! Just seeing them play makes me so happy. Plus, two more foxes are now coming with them. I have no idea why they are suddenly showing up and I don’t know if my neighbour has seen them yet. But they are literally the highlight of my day!

Depuis 5 jours de suite, 2 renards sont venus dans le jardin de mon voisin. Ils jouent, dorment et en font littéralement leur nouveau territoire! Personnellement, ce qui m’étonne, c’est le fait qu’ils arrivent en plein jour, je ne m’attendais pas à ce qu’ils se promènent le matin. À l’heure du déjeuner, ils retournent chez eux ou je l’espère.

Je n’ai jamais vu de renard dans la vraie vie jusqu’à ce que cela se produise et je ne vais pas mentir, ils sont si mignons! Le simple fait de les voir jouer me rend si heureuse. De plus, deux renards supplémentaires viennent maintenant avec eux. Je ne sais pas pourquoi ils se présentent soudainement et je ne sais pas si mon voisin les a déjà vus.

A CUTE MUG

I’ve already mentioned on my blog but I find personalised gifts quite unique and special since it’s not something you could go & buy in a store. When Personalised Gifts Market reached out to me, I knew I wanted to gift something to my mum so I picked the “name mug” which is so cute! The font is very pretty.

You can add a personalised name and it will just make the perfect gift. They do have so many personalised products so make sure to check them out! Am I the only who loves giving gifts than receiving them? It’s just the best feeling in the world when you give someone a present that you know they will love and get the use out of it.

Je l’ai déjà mentionné sur mon blog mais je trouve les cadeaux personnalisés assez uniques et spéciaux car ce n’est pas quelque chose que vous pouvez acheter dans un magasin. Lorsque Personalised Gifts Market m’a contacté, je savais que je voulais offrir quelque chose à ma mère, j’ai donc choisi le “name mug” qui est si mignon! La police est très jolie.

Vous pouvez ajouter un nom personnalisé et il fera juste le cadeau parfait. Ils ont tellement de produits personnalisés, alors assurez-vous de les vérifier! Suis-je la seule qui aime offrir des cadeaux plutôt que de les recevoir? C’est juste la meilleure sensation au monde quand vous offrez à quelqu’un un cadeau que vous savez qu’il va adorer et en tirer profit.

THE WEATHER

I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it on my blog but I hate summer! I much prefer winter or autumn over summer. One, I can’t handle the humidity nor my hair. Two, hayfever just ruins my day. Three, I have the hardest time falling asleep. But recently, the weather has been so beautiful outside that it cheers my mood up.

Obviously, it’s not summer yet and my opinion will probably change if a heatwave arrives but I’m not going to lie, I feel much happier and productive when the weather is nice outside. My mood instantly changes and I feel like I can achieve anything!

Je ne sais pas si je l’ai déjà mentionné sur mon blog mais je déteste l’été! Je préfère de beaucoup l’hiver ou l’automne à l’été. Premièrement, je ne peux pas gérer l’humidité ni mes cheveux. Deuxièmement, le pollen gâche ma journée. Troisièmement, j’ai le plus de mal à m’endormir. Mais récemment, le temps a été si beau à l’extérieur qu’il égaye mon humeur.

Évidemment, ce n’est pas encore l’été et mon avis va probablement changer si une canicule arrive mais je ne vais pas mentir, je me sens beaucoup plus heureuse et productif quand il fait beau dehors. Mon humeur change instantanément et j’ai l’impression de pouvoir tout réaliser!

DESIGNING NEW PRODUCTS

I’ve been working on my creative studio for a couple of months now since I want to release multiple products as opposed to launching one product every month. For the longest time, I wanted to design physical products and recently I’ve launched my Redbubble shop!

I’ve been trying to upload a new design everyday. Just designing and uploading my work really puts me in a good mood since I know if somebody likes my work, they might probably end up buying my work. And obviously seeing my work on physical products is just so cool.

Je travaille sur mon studio de création depuis quelques mois maintenant depuis que je veux sortir plusieurs produits au lieu de lancer un produit chaque mois. Pendant très longtemps, j’ai voulu concevoir des produits physiques et récemment j’ai lancé ma boutique Redbubble!

J’essaie de télécharger un nouveau design tous les jours. Le simple fait de concevoir et de télécharger mon travail me met vraiment de bonne humeur car je sais que si quelqu’un aime mon travail, il pourrait probablement finir par acheter mon travail. Et évidemment, voir mon travail sur des produits physiques est tellement cool.

This post contains a gifted product by Personalised Gifts Market.

  1. I get happiness from the weather too, and for me, I’m happiest on the rainy days. Maybe it’s because I live in a tropical country, but the chill breeze that comes with rain is such bliss. Curling up to a book in cold weather with a hot drink is the ultimate happiness fix.

  2. Yes, the animals seem to be returning to the cities, not always a such a good result though. I’m with you on summer, my least favourite season due to heat and bugs. Stay well. Allan

  3. Can’t lie too but foxes are so cute to look at 🙈 and I relate to the weather thing! I love winter and autumn so much! It’s officially summer here but it’s a bit cold so I’m feeling happy but still worried as it’s not normal for this time of the year … I enjoyed reading this post, Thank you for sharing~🙈💝🌹

  4. I dig your raw honesty and that is why you connect so well with so many people,you truly have a divine and distinctive down to earth personality and you are together people,I admire you and your vibe and likewise the weather is huge on my outlook, peace

  5. Ah that’s so cute you get visiting foxes! I only ever see the sad-looking city foxes where I am. I miss seeing a good healthy country fox!

  6. Sometimes it’s hard to find things that make us happy or grateful-especially given the current state of the world. I’m glad you found some and shared them!

  7. This was a great, uplifting post! Thank you for sharing! I’m a power walker. Our groomed trails where we live take me through parts of our small city and out to a nature habitat. My sunrise walks 5 days/week are the best part of my day. When I do the urban walks, I love the glow of the morning sun on the many heritage homes in our city. When I walk the nature habitat trails along the riverbank, I see lots of wildlife and wild flowers. I’m a summer lover, btw. It can never get too hot for this gal 😊

  8. Great post.
    I also found happiness in the little things even though I was stuck at home all day. Mostly I got to spend quality time with my family and take a much needed break from my studies

  9. “I feel much happier and productive when the weather is nice outside. My mood instantly changes and I feel like I can achieve anything!” – I relate so much to this!
    What a lovely post – gratitude is so important in these difficult days with COVID 19.
