happiness is a warm gun

Well, it's been almost a month since the last of my 100 happy days posts, so now I actually have two ready for you and here's the first set. If you haven't seen the first two posts, and want to, they're here and here.

1. No-tights weather!
2. I was listening to a lot of Queen in April/May. How do you feel about the new album being released or does it stir any emotions in you? On one hand I'm really excited to hear the new, unheard songs, but on the other Queen has never quite been Queen without Freddie Mercury. And especially so after John Deacon retired.
3. Sleeping, though!
4. I do love receiving little parcels:-)
5. My Moomin biscuit jar is a lil' treasure.
6. I told how I used to play a game similar to this on the computer when I was wee on Instagram. I've since completed this, and wish I could find other childhood-like games, ha! Mind the times when you'd go on the computer just to play a game for half an hour or to draw something on Paint? Those were the days!
7. Painting my nails:-)
8. Buying new notebooks is always a happy occasion:-)
9. And the Victoria Quarter is mighty pretty. Even though my job hunting there wasn't that successful, I never mind walking through these beautiful structures.

1. I wish I could buy all of these books, far too beautiful! And I could spend so much time at Waterstones.
2. Blogging:-) Oh, and I don't think I've mentioned it on the blog, but I did buy the Canon EOS 60D, as you can see. Very much loving this wee baby.
3. The Revlon nail polish in Dreamer that I bought some time ago!
4. Lunchin'!
5. Lunchin' a little healthier!
6. Writing lil' lists:-)
7. I like my sweets:-)
8. All the food! I could genuinely eat this everyday, for at least a month.
9. One of the things I got in that ASOS parcel was this hat. As it's one size and my head is tiny, it is a little roomy, but I love it all the same!

Marisa Noelle said...

How gorgeous are you! Love that last little photo. Yes to no tights weather! Finally...I feel like it has been a long time coming with the never-ending winter this year. And are those coke bottle gummies at the bottom? That was one of my favorite sweets as a kid! I haven't seen those around in forever!

Ali Hval said...

Aaaw yes, no tights weather is awesome! I still love wearing colorful socks though. :D All your food looks os yummy!

The Adventures of a Shopaholic said...

Amazing pics!


Winnie said...

Oh wow the camera! How nice! I'd love to upgrade my your IG Post! Wish it could be no tights weather every day!

Audrey said...

I noticed the Revlon lip crayons! Aren't they great? So comfortable and a great price too (:

Amanda said...

I love your Asos hat! I have a similar one, but it's from Primark so it hasn't held up spectacularly well. (Sweet make me happy too :) ) xx

Meg Kernaghan said...

I have the same camera and lens! So exciting to be able to have beautiful cameras like the 60D.
How are you finding it? I really like using that lens on long exposure shots, with 15 or 30 second shutter speed. It's awesome to play around with :)

Do you have any other lensses?

mochaccinoland said...

i could feel your excitement when u said "no-tights weather!" hahaha! i, on the other hand, can't wait for blazer weather again. i'm melting and suffocating in where i live.

lovely pictures!!!


Indy said...

I love Queen! I didn't know they were releasing a new album, but you're right - definitely won't be the same without Freddie!

And your new hat is lovely! :)

Corinne said...

I'm really hoping your title is a Tori Amos reference =)

Enjoy the camera!

Sam said...

This is a wonderful set of photos, each very meaningful! Thanks for sharing your opinion with me. Wishing you a warm and wonderful weekend!

Krysten Quiles said...

Yay to no tights weather and food in general ;)

Eline said...

Queen is goooood. I think it would be quite weird when there's a new queen album released since queen just isn't the same without freddy.

Sakuranko said...

Oh very cute pics sweetie!
Thank you for share!

London Loafers said...

What a lovely post!
And HAH, I feel the same way whenever I walk into Waterstones! I too have been eyeing this beautiful collection of classics, trying to resist the temptation!


Ester Ramos said...
