Things To Be Thankful For

In the wake of Thanksgiving last week, even though it is typically an American celebration I feel it's important for us all to take a moment and reflect upon everything in our lives we are to be thankful for. I also find this to be quite a useful way of boosting my motivation as I reflect upon what I have already achieved. Life is very precious and it's something we all take for granted at times and so the following list is a reflection of things I personally, am thankful for.

Things to be thankful for




Blogging
Thanks to the advances in technology, I have been able to network with some lovely people in the industry and I couldn't be any more grateful for the opportunities Clarke Couture has brought me in the past 16 months. As a fashion student, it has now become even more important for me to get out there and get involved with those already working in the industry. Without my blog I would have missed out on getting involved with so many amazing opportunities and so for that reason, I am eternally grateful. Every comment, every follower, every retweet and like honestly all mean the absolute world me so thank you all ever so much.

Family
They have always been there and supported me, through thick and thin. My mum especially has always given me 110% of her effort, love and support. She has allowed me to grow and become the person that I am today, guiding me through both my mistakes and successes. Our families are something we definitely all take for granted sometimes, I honestly don't know where I would be without mine. 

Friends
You can't have family without friends. And remember, high school popularity really isn't all that it seems. It's about the quality of your friendships, not the quantity of your friends.

Facilities
Although university fees are daunting and expensive, the things your £9000 a year gives you are truly invaluable. My global fashion cultures lecturer shown me a list of everything that money is worth the other day and I was genuinely amazed by the number of resources, state of the art equipment and industry experience I am fortunate to receive by attending university. I'm sure once I leave in four years time, I'll be eternally grateful to have gained such great experience throughout my degree. 

Coffee
Yes, I really did say coffee!! How would I survive 9am lectures with a cupful of this beauty?!

Nature
The ability to be able to just get away and transport yourself during a long walk really is so calming. Nature truly is so beautiful, explore the world whilst you can.

Sunshine
Speaking of nature, waking up with the sun peeping through your curtains always brings a good start of my day.

Music
A good song, can always brighten my mood.

Makeup
Red lipstick is always a reason to smile. 

"Beauty to me is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick." - Gwyneth Paltrow
Photography
A picture truly can say a thousand words but a memory can hold a thousand more.

Celebrations
Anything worth celebrating is worth cherishing and being thankful for. Here's to many more happy memories.



And so that's a few things that I feel I should be thankful for. I thought I'd create a bit of a lighthearted and positive post as we enter into the Christmas period. Did you celebrate Thanksgiving this year? Did you even dare to brave the chaos of Black Friday?! Let me know in the comments below - I surprisingly didn't see much that I wanted! Until next time lovelies,


What things are you grateful for?!
