Happy 101 Tag

So I've been tagged to do Happy 101 Tag.

I love tags. I'm so jealous when I see really fun looking tags and don't get tagged in them.

Anyway, so this is 10 things that make me happy.

In no particular order...

Sex and the City
Episode after episode after episode. I could watch it all day long if I didn't have other stuff to do. I have probably seen each episode at least say 40 times. Now that's a lot of hours. I got the box set when I was 16 and it's been one of the best presents I have ever received.
Carrie is my inspiration, and probably the reason why I started writing, got a MacBook, and started wearing neck scarves round my arms.

Music
My brother is the person to be thankful for, for getting me into music. He had me listening to Radiohead's OK Computer when I was 10, and my love for alternative music grew from there. My all time favourite artists are probably The Beastie Boys, Marilyn Manson, Oasis, OutKast, Radiohead, JUSTICE, Erol Alkan, Slipknot, India Arie, Erykah Badu, Bob Dylan, Jeff Buckley.. That kind of thing really.


The Beatles
The Beatles deserve a category all of their own. Nothing makes me more proud to be able to say that the biggest band of all time are from Liverpool. Trace back through popular bands today and you get a timeline that will eventually reach back to the Beatles as their primary influential source.
I was lucky enough to go and see Paul McCartney last year at Liverpool Football Club's stadium, Anfield, and it is probably the best concert I have ever been to. Little bit of useless info - My Granny and Granddad used to own a newsagents, and who was their paper boy? Only little Paul McCartney! My two favourite Beatles songs are Eleanor Rigby and Come Together. Unreal.



MAC Make Up
Maybe a little shallow of me, but buying products from MAC really excites me. Is that weird? My favourite products are Peachykeen Blush, Studio Sculpt Concealer, Fluid Line Concealer in Black Track and Lustre Lipstick in Politely Pink. The Back to Mac scheme is such a good incentive. I've had about three or four lipsticks because of it.

My Driving License.
In real life, one of my annoyingly favourite topics to talk about is Epilepsy. I got diagnosed when I was 19. It was just after first year of Uni had finished, so I was out all the time, staying out late and getting rather drunk. In turn, this provoked my Epilepsy, and my License was taken off me straight away, with the rule being that I had to go 12 months without having a seizure and I would be able to drive again. It took me two years to get my license back. There is nothing more annoying than always having to rely on friends for lifts and I couldn't believe it when my license came through the door late last year. Needless to say, I don't drink alcohol anymore, and I drive every time any of us go out. Plus I got a sweet little Mini for proving I could do it.

My Mum
My Mum never fails to make me smile. She is so cute, and funny, but not on purpose. She is so generous, kind and loving. She has had a tough couple of years, but still works hard, growing her business and is such a lovely person.


My Friends
I am so lucky to have such a hilarious group of friends. They are all so wise, and so funny. Always there to make you laugh, and there to give support and advice when it is needed. Most of my closest friends are girls that I went to school with, so we've known each other for years and years.


My MacBook
Can you tell I'm running out of things? I have had my MacBook since I was 18 and it is my absolute lifeline. If I was to drop this or get it robbed or anything, I would be devastated. I do have an apple Time Capsule to back it all up on, but I haven't got round to doing it yet.. Eek.




My Dogs
You've all seen countless photos of the puppies, Coco and Lola, but they are very cute. They are Lhasa Apsos, and they are about four months old now. Here's little Lola pretending she has no legs, and doing a very good impression of an owl.

My Brother
My Brother Paul is without a doubt one of the funniest people in my life. He is naturally very witty and very wise. He is a bit too clever for his own good, and known by many as "the happiest guy in Liverpool."
That is him in the check shirt, performing at a gig in Liverpool. He is such a lovely guy.


I feel a bit sly because I haven't included my Dad but he too makes me happy, but I don't have a photo of him. He's a good guy though. Very knowledgeable and has led the most unreal life. He tells me different stories of his life every day, that I have never heard before.

Oh and I tag anybody who wants to do this!

  7. This was a really sweet post. I can't wait for the second SATC movie, the trailer has gotten me all excited already! I love the back to MAC incentive as well, but I heard that they're getting rid of it soon which is a tad gutting. x

  8. I love the Beatles. So much. But not just because they're 'meant to be classic' etc. I just genuinely love their music.

    Come Together is also one of my favourites, and I got 95% singing it on my own on Beatles Rockband on NYE ;) What a way to bring in 2010!

    Love this post x
