9 Happy Things! Actually on a Sunday! Miracles do happen… Here’s things from this week that have been making me smile.
1) Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Hardcore mode
Thankfully this hasn’t happened to me yet! In short, hardcore mode means that if your character dies, they’re dead for good. No revives, no ‘press y for revive’, just full on deadsies. You get that lovely screen up there and then it’s back to the start. I have been absolutely loving the challenge of hardcore! I’m used to playing hardest difficulty on my lvl 70 Monk in Monkey King garb and coasting it for the most part. In hardcore, I’m playing a Demon Hunter (completely new territory!) and having a ball! The greater risk makes for the greater reward, after all.

This is how I feel when it’s really hot.
3) Cats in general
As I have been doing for the last few weeks, I visited my Dad and saw our cats, who promptly made me giggle. Jackson was sleeping in flower beds, and Chet was collapsing just about anywhere. As a big, black fluffy cat he doesn’t do well in this heat!
4) Chanrio avatar maker
Isn’t this the cutest? The Chanrio avatar generator (warning: you will need your browser’s translator on for this site!) is an avatar maker from Sanrio (Hello Kitty, Keroppi, My Melody… but you knew that already!) and I just had to make avatars of me and the Boyfriend-Wonder. They didn’t have my hair colour, but I’d like to try a grey/silver one day! If you make avatars, let me know! I’d love to see them.
5) Cateaclysmic’s Etsy store
Fellow blogger Cateaclysmic makes some hella cute nerdy jewellery and accessories. Like, HELLA. CUTE. She makes scarves (many of which are Game of Thrones inspired) and tons of bracelets- the chocolate chip cookie and pink rose ones are my favourite! Check out her shop and blog and tell her I sent you!
6) Song of the Sea is finally out in the UK
This film is finally, finally out and I can tell everyone how good it is! Yay! I saw this back at the start of May thanks to my internship and have been smitten ever since. It totally killed me not being able to tell people about it. It’s honestly one of the best non-Disney, non-Japanese animated films I have ever seen, with a really unique style and colour palettes. I really recommend everyone sees it and lets me know what they think! Check out the trailer here.
7) Cheeky Boo’s mermaid necklace
Confession: I LOVE mermaids. Absolutely adore them. Cheeky Boo Emporium (who I won this awesome banner from) have an awesome selection in their online shop and I am deeply deeply in love with necklace. They just got their summer collection in, and I am a huge fan of the I Heart the Internet pin (fitting for a blogger, no?) and the Diplo-Cupidocus badge. So cute!
8) Tuxford Windmill
Grand adventures! Kind of. It was the Boyfriend-Wonder’s Gran’s birthday this weekend, so to celebrate, his family took us all out to the tearoom at at Tuxford Windmill and it was gorgeous! There was a ton of options, a friendly dog (!) and lavender everywhere. I ordered cream tea and it was delicious! the wait was a bit long, but hey- it was super busy.
9) All lavender everything
Little planters like this were everywhere at Tuxford, and reminded me of my love for lavender. You can use it for and with everything! It helps you sleep, makes your clothes smell lovely, you can put it in food, drinks… All sorts! When The Boyfriend-Wonder and I have moved into our new place (wherever that may be) I plan on cultivating some.
What’s been making you happy?
