Ever since I first laid eyes on Sally's blog and read one of her #wonderfulwednesday posts, I knew she was on to something. Celebrating the small things and being grateful is something I am very fond of. Finding the good, the lovely, the wonderful in everyday life is an activity that everyone should take part in! 

Recently, a few other bloggers have teamed up with Sally and are documenting the lovely things that have been happening in their lives through a Wonderful Wednesday post, and I thought it was about time I joined in! 

Here are a few things that have been making my week extra lovely!

Blooming El Lifestyle Blog

My Own Bed

For those of you who follow me on Instagram and Twitter, you would have seen that last week I was in Fuerteventura. Now whilst being on holiday is absolutely fabulous, there is no better feeling than returning home after a long flight and sliding in to your own bed. The sheets welcoming you back in to their soft, comforting arms. The pillows embracing your weary head as you stretch out to find the perfect position. Ah, isn't that just the best feeling?

Returning to New York City

Once you return from a holiday, it's only natural you start thinking about the next one. Right? Fuerteventura was supposed to be mine and G's last holiday as we are saving for a flat. However, life is too short and when your Mum and her partner say YES to a trip to the big apple, you have to go. I went to NYC on a school trip when I was 18 but I'm excited to return and have free reign on what we can do, where we can eat and where we can sleep! 

Kings of Leon

A few years ago, my heart broke when I heard KOL were splitting up. Well, at least I thought they were. Maybe they did...who knows? All that matters is that they have returned and my little heart won't stop fluttering! I absolutely adore Kings of Leon, they are one of my favourite bands and seeing them at Hyde Park a few years ago will remain as one of the best moments of my life. I've already had a listen to their new song Waste a Moment and I am loving it. I cannot wait for them to release their new album, it'll be the first thing I buy on payday. Eeek!

Making Goals

When I returned from my holibobs, I decided I needed to make a list of goals, for two reasons: 1. I love making lists. 2. Setting goals gives me something to work towards and makes me feel like I'm doing something productive with my little life, for once. Last year, I wrote a list of goals and tucked them away in a drawer. A few months later I found the list and was so surprised at how much I had achieved! This time round, the list includes things like: pay off my credit card, pay off my NYC trip, start to save for mine and G's little humble abode, sign up to a few leisure courses at one of my local college's. Although it may take time to achieve each goal, it will be a great feeling when I finally get to draw that little tick!
