The Sunday Post: Things That Made Me Happy This Week...

What made me happy this week...

- WE BOUGHT A CAR! Yes, that's right, me and the other half finally took the plunge and bought our very own little Suzuki Swift and it's been so good having the freedom to drive wherever we want! The only downside is I can't actually drive it yet as I haven't passed my driving test but...

- I've booked my theory test this week for a couple of weeks time so I'm halfway there! My other half kindly bought me some helpful revision material too, so hopefully I'll pass with flying colours!

- It was a good week for blogging this week! I started up some advertising campaigns with the lovely Miss Makeup Magpie and Tea Party With Alice, I received my first proper bit of blogging mail and my social media accounts have been thriving! I'm filled with so much excitement and motivation at the minute, so if you're reading this I thank you!

- I was contacted by the lovely ladies at Lush Hull to say that I had won their blogger prize! At the fab Lush event last month (post here!), we were shown an AMAAAZING brand new gift set of goodies and we were told that the write-up on the event that they liked the most would win the box of treats! I thought no way in hell did I stand a chance after reading some of the other Hull bloggers posts which were all such great reads, but they picked me and I'm very grateful! Where to put it all now though?!
