June 2016 | Happiness Highlights

June was a month filled with highs and lows, but writing my Happiness Highlights allowed me to focus on the positive and appreciate each passing day, whatever the case may be. #1: Indulging in my favourite treat, a Chinese takeaway (char siu fried rice). #2: Family coming together to support one another following a bereavement. #3: Despite some doubts, not […]

May 2016 | Happiness Highlights

You might have been wondering whether I’d jumped into a DeLorean time machine recently, since that would provide a reasonable explanation for 1) My absence, and, 2) Writing about May in July. Unfortunately though, the actual reason is far less exciting, so in an effort to now catch up on blogging, here are my happiness highlights from the month […]

Film | Lights, Camera, ACTION!

Hi, I’m Adele. Or perhaps you know me better as The Girl in Glasses, considering that I have been posting on this blog (under that alias) since September 10, 2014. With that in mind, I have recently decided to have a slight revamp and merge my secondary blog, which hasn’t made it out of the early stages of […]

April 2016 | Happiness Highlights

#1: Finishing work, listening to music while packing for a weekend at Stephen’s. #2: Taking a trip to the cinema to watch Zootropolis (2016) and exiting with THE biggest smile on my face. #3: Making plans and edging ever closer to booking our next family holiday. #4: An unexpected, but welcome, email out of the blue. #5: Stretching out on the sofa and […]

March 2016 | Happiness Highlights

Since we are fast approaching the end of another month, I thought that I would find some time to share my happiness highlights from March. You know what they say, better late than never! #1: To welcome in the start of a new month I created a week long ‘to-do’ list with multiple tasks to complete each […]

Blogmas #2 | The Christmas Tag

As we are now in the month of December, you will notice that almost everyone has gone Christmas crazy but who can blame them with only 22 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS! I saw the Christmas Tag being passed between blogs and making appearances on Twitter yesterday, so I thought that I would get into the spirit […]

Lifestyle | #TBT: Forgotten Hobbies & Unfinished Projects

Last week, I was sorting through some of my storage units from childhood that are currently in the garage and on doing so, I unearthed an old sketchbook, which had just one single painting in it. It’s funny how one piece of artwork can bring back a flood of memories, I was around 14 years old when […]

Motivational Monday | Remember To Look Up

I have touched upon a similar topic previously for Motivational Monday in my Beauty is Everywhere and Pleased to Meet You blog posts, explaining things in our lives that we should take the time to appreciate, including anything from a beautiful sunset, a quiet ‘me’ moment and even a complete stranger adding brightness to our day. We are all so connected but what does […]

Lifestyle | Creative Workspaces

Today, I thought that I would share a bit more about my career, it seems fitting as it’s my first day back at work following the Easter break, with an inbox of 100+ emails to navigate through (wish me luck)! I work for a marketing consultancy as a Senior Online Community Manager. It’s a creative role, which allows me […]

Lifestyle | Spread The Love

I have seen the Spread the Love event being passed around the blogosphere, it’s one that I always enjoy reading because it gives you the warm fuzzies inside, so I was pleased to see that my friend Jill tagged me to join in with it! The rules Write 10 four-word sentences about what love means to […]
