In honor of National I Want You to be Happy Day, I thought it would be appropriate to spend this Monday writing about 10 things that make me happy.
Dark chocolate is my absolute favorite type of chocolate. Most people I know aren't really fond of it, but I love the somewhat bitter taste. I don't get to eat dark chocolate too often, but when I do it's always a good day.
My obsession with makeup all started when I began watching beauty videos on Youtube my freshman year of college. I had no idea watching one tutorial would eventually turn me into a borderline makeup hoarder.
A lot of people I know don't really understand my fascination with makeup, but anything related to beauty brings me to a place of happiness. The way to my heart is through makeup! All day, everyday.
Although I slacked with writing content last year, blogging truly puts me in my happy place. It's my way of being a part of the beauty community on the web since I am not brave enough to do Youtube.

I have met some of my best friends through my sisterhood. They have been there for me through the good, the bad and the ugly. They have never left my side. Whoever thought of the quote, "You don't go to college to find your husband, you go to find your bridesmaids," was absolutely correct in my case. I may not have a man, but I have my sisters.
There's something about burning a candle that immediately puts my mind at ease. Whenever I need to get some serenity, I will burn a candle. Sweet scented candles are some of my favorites. There's nothing better in life than having your room smell like a bakery.
Whenever I have a piece of red velvet cake, all is right in the world. I rarely eat cake, but I love me a good piece of red velvet. Use cream cheese frosting and it's pure gold.
I've known my best friend since high school drill team days. We went through undergraduate together and now she's in DC working on her master's degree. It's weird not seeing her everyday like I was accustomed to in college, but i'm so proud of her and her accomplishments. Although she's in another part of the country, I always feel like she's near when we talk.

Youtube has become one of my main sources for entertainment. From beauty related videos to vlogs, I make sure to get my daily fix of Youtube. It's such an amazing resource and I don't know what I ever did without it.
Nothing's better than a strong carbonated Coke. They make life so much better. I know soda isn't good for me, but Coke is my guilty pleasure. This may sound crazy, but I love the way Coke burns my throat.
I'm the girl who can taste the difference between Coke and Pepsi and will always choose Coke. Not Diet Coke or Coke Zero. My delicious, unhealthy Coke in a red can.
Anything related to Lilly makes me happy and I immediately smile. I'm pretty sure it's because of the bright colors and prints. With all the bright colors, how can you not be happy?
If it was up to me, I'd have a closet full of Lilly and nothing else!
Also in honor of National I Want You to be Happy Day, I wanted to leave this little gem here.
What brings happiness to your life?
Love and desserts,
