DIY Happy Jar





After studying the law of attraction (google it if you're not sure) I've been trying to find inner peace and embracing a new zen way of life. To make sure I am constantly being the best person I can be, I like to make little, in-expensive things that will keep me inspired and help me stay happy. That's where I came up with the idea of a 'happy jar', as simple as it sounds, just a jar full of items that will spark happiness and pick me up when I'm feeling sad.



My happy place is definitely the sea so I've gone for a theme of the seaside with inspirational quotes written on pebbles amongst pretty shells. It's completely up to you what you want your jar to be full of though, you might choose dried flowers or past tickets from events etc. 
I was inspired by the idea of writing quotes on pebbles after finding a pebble in a little trinket shop with the word "zen" written over it. I bought a couple there and then as I loved the cute messages on them, but have since been to my local beach to customise my own. You could even carry a certain pebble around with you as a lucky charm with the message you are needing to get you through that particular day.

TIMES SQUARE, CENTRAL PARK AND GRAND CENTRAL!

So if you haven't seen my first New York blog post (if so, what are you playing at?!) then you won't know that I went away to The Big Apple for a short trip. I split the photos into two posts and this is day 3 of our trip so sit back and enjoy!


 I absolutely fell in love with Times Square. 





I can now tick "visit DASH" off my bucket list haha!





Empire State Building - SO COOL!



BIGGEST MACY'S IN THE WORLD A.K.A MAKEUP HEAVEN 






We saw Aladdin in Broadway which was absolutely incredible - by far the best show I've ever seen. If you're going to New York, you have to see it!



Grand Central Station







Trump Tower









Central Park


It looked so beautiful with the snowy grounds and blue sky.








You can find my first New York blog post here.
