I've recently become completely hooked on those adorable Physicians Formula 'Happy Booster' blushes & powders. These are violet scented & are said to promote the feeling of happiness by mimicking the effect of endorphins. While, I'm not sure I've felt that effect, I know that I LOVE the way I look with these on. I own them all & love every single one of them. They apply so nicely either alone or over my bronzer & each one gives me an awesome, happy glow.
Light Bronzer Powder
I got these all at Ulta & they always seem to have a hard time keeping them in stock. I finally got the Bronzer powder & Rose blush today after looking for about 2 weeks.
After looking over these cute little blushes, I thought to myself about their aspect of promoting happiness. Some of you may know that things for me as of late have been less than happy. I've had a lot going on over the last year & at the end of the day, I think all we want is to just be happy. I know that's what I want; to be happy & to be healthy. I've made lots of changes to my life just within the last few weeks alone & am truly on my way to finding my happiness.
So, I come to you all with one question:

Here's what makes me happy :D
Video games! I'm sure this has been MORE than obvious! I've loved video games since I was in kindergarten. I remember playing Super Mario Bros. 3 on the original Nintendo with my family. Since then, I've been hooked! I find it as a way to relieve stress, take my mind off things & just enjoy an awesome little digital world.
Humour! Even if it's foul mouthed toilet humour cartoons, checking up on Strongbad emails or reading the comics in every Sunday paper; humour is something I NEED in my life to be happy. I laugh a LOT and can easily find humour in everything. A huge inspiration in my life is George Carlin. I've spent hours listening to his hilarious material & have probably never laughed so hard in my life.
Having red hair...it's such a confidence booster for me. I've been changing my hair colour for over 12 years now & have never felt better when I have red hair. Confidence definitely helps trigger my happiness & I also find comfort within as well.
This is Pookie. She is one of the great loves of my life. You may not know this, but I live on an 8 acre farm south of Chicago. Most people are surprised that farmland still exists in this area, but my Grandpa has a small poultry farm that has always come well equipped with kitties! We have quite a few cats right now & when new babies are born, we socialize them & adopt them out. It can be kind of tough to see them go, because I spend as much time as I can with these little turkeys. But these little ones are amazing & you can always catch me outside being a huge dork with them :P
Nature! This plant here is right outside my front door. It's this amazingly beautiful & eye catching yellow shade that will only last during the spring. But I love it. My Grandpa has a total green thumb & during the spring/summer, my entire house and driveway is surrounded by plants & flowers. I love spending as much time outside as possible & have always had a liking for photographing the plant life around my house.
And of course...makeup! I've always been intrigued by makeup since I was a kid. I practically lived inside my mom's cosmetics case & would constantly swipe her makeup & play. She taught me that red lipstick requires attitude. I tried to copy everything I saw & am sure I had some pretty atrocious moments! But it's been a learning adventure for me. I learned everything I know now by myself & it's something I am so proud of. Year after year, I feel I've made huge improvements and it makes me feel incredibly good about what I love doing. I was recently accepted to Makeup School Sydney & am beyond excited (&happy!) to get the ball rolling!
Of course, I have plenty more things that make me happy, but these are key to my life.
So, let's hear it! What makes you happy?!
