The Happy List-Alix {A Pint Sized Life}



Hey Loves! I'm so excited about today's post because I have one of my sweet blogging friends with us to share her Happy List. So let's welcome Alix from A Pint Sized Life. When we're done here skip over to her page and check out her swoon worthy lifestyle blog but first grab a mug of coffee, kick up your feet and get cozy while Alix shares what's making her so happy.


1. My dog

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll see a number of posts that feature my shih tzu Oreo. Well, Oreo HATES the camera and has like a 6th sense to stop what he’s doing and be dull when I get my phone out. He relaxes, calms, and makes me smile. P.S. I do catch him doing something funny sometimes and it usually goes on my Snapchat.




2. When I take/find a picture that fits with my Insta theme


A lot of Instagram things on here! I recently settled on a consistent Instagram theme and I couldn’t be happier with it. I love all things girly, bright and floral so that’s what I post. Although it is tricky and sometimes frustrating to figure out a theme, it is soooo rewarding to see it when it’s complete.



3. A good manicure

Yes, I know-cliche. There’s something about manicured nails that makes me handle things differently (I don’t know how to explain this feeling). A good manicure makes me feel put together and fancy. Plus finding the PERFECT color gets me waaaaay too excited. They also make a great Insta shot prop i.e. holding your coffee.



4. A new episodes alert on my favorite Netflix show

When I see the new episode alert a little part of me (or my whole being) gets ready for a night (or two or three) of binge watching. JSYK- my favorite show has 20 seasons. And counting!



5. Putting together an outfit

When I see a dress, shirt or really any item of clothing I start styling and putting together an outfit; the accessories, the hair, the makeup etc. In fact sometimes styling in my head is better than shopping, but only sometimes.



6. An Arnold Palmer

An Arnold Palmer= half tea and half lemonade. I drank them my entire life so I don’t know why I’m OBSESSED with them this summer. If you need me, I’ll be on out on the porch drinking an Arnold Palmer. It’s a southern thing.



That’s it for now! Thanks for reading this, find me on Instagram (I’m obsessed), Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook! You can also find me on Tumblr. And last, but certainly not least, visit my blog, stay a while and sign up for the resource library filled with freebies, graphics and playlists and I’ll add you to my private Facebook group.

Also use the hashtag #TheHappyGram on any Instagram post that (wait for it…) makes you happy! Food, clothes, your pet(s), family, friends whatever frosts your cupcake. See you on Insta! Read the full #TheHappyGram post here.

Thank you Alix for sharing your Happy List with us. I absolutely loved it. There is something very happy and satisfying about putting together the perfect outfit. Netflix, good manicures and sweet puppies always make me happy, too and because of you, I am now hooked on Arnold Palmers! I had never had one until the other day but I thought, my sweet friend Alix loves them, they must be really good and they ARE!

Share with us what's making you happy lately and be sure to follow Alix on all her social media accounts. You'll love her, I promise.

  2. Our pups are just alike! Diesel despises the camera. He will bury his face so you can't see him! That's why there are never any pictures of him on my Instagram. He is a mess. And now I am so curious as to which Netflix show has 20 seasons.

    2. Crystal! Thank you for stopping by and leaving some comment love. You are always so sweet! My Willow is the opposite, she's a ham for the camera. That's why I have more pics of her than I do my child. Haha.

      My hubby loves anything British, too. Especially comedies. British shoes seem to last the longest. They always have so many seasons!

    1. Summer, thank you for stopping by and showing Alix some love. Netflix is my obsession. I've never watched Alix's favorite show but I might have to start!

  6. My dog boudin is the same!! He just knows when I'm going to take a photo of him. I'm like but you're so cute just take the picture! Lol. Manicures are always the best, I also love pedis. Yes to Netflix! I honestly could spend me whole weekend watching shows. So nice to get to know you better!

    1. Aww, Mistle. You are always so sweet. Thank you for stopping by and leaving Alix some love. I think it's so funny how everyone's dogs are shy with the camera. Willow isn't, she's such a ham for the camera. She actually poses, that's why I have more pictures of her than I do my human child.

      I agree with manis and pedis. I need one so bad! I wish we could all go together, how fun would that be? Netflix is my weakness, too. Once I turn it on, everything else is done.

      I'm so glad you enjoyed this post and getting to know Alix better.
