Do You Deserve Happiness?



Few things make me happier than a simple vanilla candle and some twinkly lights; but is true happiness a right?

It seems to be a common misconception amongst millennials, yes I've accepted that I am a millennial, that we deserve things, are entitled. We deserve a satisfying job. We deserve wealth or, at the very least, financial security. We deserve family. We deserve Love. 
We deserve happiness.

But do we really? 

Or do we see the generations before us, who have most of these things, and expect to have the same? Are we entitled or we deserving? 

I honestly have no clue. I'm 31 now and it doesn't seem to be getting any easier. Older friends, ones who have these things and yet for some unknown reason still aren't happy, will tell you that of course you deserve these things. They are a right! I'm remain unconvinced. 

I'm trying very hard to change my attitudes towards my entitlement. I no longer expect things to be handed to me. I am trying not to expect too much of others. I am changing my attitude and I am dropping my expectations. Because by taking this small step I have noticed that I am happier without trying to be happy. By stepping away from competitiveness I have found a sort of peace. 

Its not a perfect way of life. I still want love. I would like security. I would like world peace. I would like a lot of things. Do I deserve them? I just don't know.

  1. I really need to stop expecting things , especially when it's based on someone else's actions.

    We do all deserve to be happy & in love but I believe it's up to us to get this ourselves .... it won't just fall in our laps... nobody will be truly happy until they themselves do something towards it.

    Lovely post

    1. Absolutely! It is something that has to be worked on and cultivated. We can't just expect or demand happiness.
      Small steps! Xx

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems. This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take. And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low

Shazam! Movie Review

I’m living in a world where I’m still excited after coming out of a DC movie and, honestly, it’s about damn time! Having been frustrated with the recent Aquaman and Wonder Woman movies who were supposed to be game changers for DC but ended up delivering nothing but clichéd tropes, lazy joke writing, laughable CGI; albeit with a slightly lighter tone than their usual dark and dreary aesthetic. I was nervous about Shazam but ready to accept my usual “It’s a good mindless watch but needs more fun” opinion. For the most part my normal quibbles have been ironed out and the fun is plentiful! Shazam is packed full of genuinely funny jokes, there are true surprises in the story which, unless you’ve read the comics, you would have no clue from any of the promotional materials. Zachary Levi, who has long been one of my favourite cult/nerdy actors, brings his usual charisma and charm to the role and you have no issue believing that this is a 15 year old kid who is stoked to have these life chan

Matcha Madness: The Body Shop Matcha Tea Face Mask Review

My name is Bex and I am a mask addict! I love masks. Cream, clay, mud, peeling, sheet, cellulose, nourishing... you name it and I love it! I recently spent an evening with the amazing staff from The Body Shop Belfast learning about all their key products and celebrating their cruelty free status and at the end of the night I was very kindly gifted their Japanese Matcha Tea pollution clearing mask - I was delighted!  We all know that the world has gone Matcha crazy but beyond an occasional frappe from a well known coffee house my main experiences have been with Matcha flavour cakes from my local asian supermarket. They are seriously amazing and the lightest sponge I've ever eaten but it doesn't exactly scream "good for you". Thankfully, apart from being seriously tasty Matcha is ridiculously good for you. Traditionally brewed as a simple green tea it is packed full of antioxidants - 10 times the amount in normal green teas as you are consuming the precious groun
