Five Things Friday 4/4/14

It’s April! And it’s Friday! Let’s celebrate with a rather late and random (as usual) Five Things Friday post from yours truly.

Five Things Friday - Can You Be Happy For 100 Days In a Row?

1. #100HappyDays

If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook you might have seen that I’ve used the hashtag 100HappyDays once daily since last weekend? I decided to join a challenge called, guess what? Yes, 100 Happy Days. I will post a photo of something that makes me happy, every day for 100 days. Why?

“People successfully completing the challenge claimed to:

 – Start noticing what makes them happy every day;
 – Be in a better mood every day;
 – Start receiving more compliments from other people;
 – Realize how lucky they are to have the life they have;
 – Become more optimistic;
 – Fall in love during the challenge.” From
I think that this is something we could all benefit from (I know I do) as we tend to forget the good things in life at times. Through these daily photos I’ve already noticed that I’m better at focusing on the small things that brings smiles to my face.

2. April Photo Challenge: #HeatItUp

A group of wonderful and inspiring women started this photo challenge on Instagram and I am loving it. Well, I admit that I have already been stressed and confused trying to keep up with the word of the day is, but I will be doing my very best to keep up with this as it is a great and motivating challenge. Plus, I love Instagram. I really do! And any reason to post thousands of photos on there is a great reason.

Five Things Friday - Smoothie 3. SMOOTHIES

I haven’t had a blender since we moved from the jungle to town in December. It has been rough, as I really love making smoothies and hummus (my main uses for blenders right there). Last weekend my husband surprised me by getting a blender for me, as he obviously has realized that I’m just not quite in my happy place if I don’t have one. So yes, these last few days I’ve been loving life. And smoothies. A lot.

The last week I’ve been trying Skout Organic trailbars and it’s been pure bliss. I will tell you ALL about Skout Organics in a review here at soon!

5. April Fools or “April april din dumma sill, jag kan lura dig vart jag vill”

So April 1st came and went and I managed to stay away from being fooled (I think?!). Neither did I try to fool anyone. But I did however enjoy reading some very obvious April Fools. Plus, it made me think that internet is a very interesting place.. A LOT of stuff goes around, 24/7, and sometimes (no matter if it’s April 1st or not) I wonder what really is for REAL and what’s not?!
Did you get fooled on April 1st?
Do you love smoothies? What are your favorite ingredients?
