Happiness. We all look for it in our day to day lives. But sometimes with work, life, the daily routine we forget to seek it out. My big step towards happiness was going freelance, being in charge of my own schedule, help deal with my anxiety and spend more time with people I love.

The man behind the lens, who you guys rarely see - Chris is a huge part of my site and takes most of the pictures you see and 'like' on instagram. I couldn't have achieved my current work/life balance (which is still a work in progress!) or continued doing my dream job if it weren't for his support and hard work.
They say behind every great man there is a woman, and I believe it runs true the other way - or that we both hold each other up. But not only all this, he is the kindest, nicest person I know - and those of you who have been to any of my events can probably testify: he's much nicer than me.
And he makes me laugh every single day. And that's what happiness is about, right?

Anyway, enough of the soppy stuff. I am excited to be working with the lovely people at Kipling on their We Make Happy campaign (because as well as great bags and luggage, their brand ethos is basically happiness - and I'm down with that). Throughout June, Kipling will be working on the 'little things' that make people happy (last year they made a rainbow walkway over London Bridge - no biggie) - and they are asking for people to submit a lovely message for a friend or loved one via we-makehappy.com, they will be notified that they can find their (secret) message at an installation full of balloons at the Southbank Centre observation point on the 18th June (just think of the instagram opportunities!). I will be there on the 18th with Chris seeking out his message, making a day of it with our family - a walk along the Southbank is one of my favourite things to do in London anyway.
This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Kipling, whose campaign for happiness I am excited to be a part of.
