  1. The reclining seats in the cinema are amazing aren’t they, I haven’t had the chance to use them in ages but they’re definitely worth it! I’m currently watching You but I still have a few episodes before the end. I think I need to start making a ‘Happy List’ as I’m such a negative person so it might help me see the positives a bit more!

    • Yeah I was so excited when I found out our nearest cinema was refurbished haha. Ah the ending was insane! Thanks for reading ✨

  2. This is a really nice idea – I love the thought of having a happy list, might have to adopt something like that myself. I’m looking forward to reading these!

  3. It is good that you’re changing some habits up this year. Perfectionism is great in some senses but there’s a point where things don’t need to be perfect. It is great that you’re creating a happy list to reflect back on. Your sweet potato and lentil dhal bowl look delicious! Thanks for sharing some of your recent faves!

  4. The perfectionistic side taking a backseat thing is something I’m trying to achieve this year with my blog, too. I feel like I got lost in creating high-quality, overly edited content in 2018 and it took away from why I really started blogging, which was to talk to people about the things I was interested in. It sounds like these “little things” posts are going to be a great way for you to do that. Best of luck with it!

    • Exactly! I put way too much pressure on myself sometimes, I want to go back to making smaller blog posts like these which are always fun to write. Thanks for reading!

  5. Aah I’m also adopting the happy list into my journal, too, and gosh it makes such a difference to read back at all of the little things that have made me happy over the past week! Thank you so much for your fantasy recommendation – I love a good ol’ fantasy book, but I’m a bit worried about the ‘dark’ part… How dark is dark?

    • Exactly! Oh I couldn’t recommend these books more. The dark parts are down to the more violent scenes, and their schemes are rather twisted at times. It’s so entertaining to read about though, definitely pick them up!

  6. I’m so excited for reclining seats in the cinema? Even though we don’t have any, it sounds amazing! I’m yet to watch You on Netflix, but hoping to get around to it this week!

    I also really love the idea of your Happy List in your bullet journal, it’s always too easy to forget to write down things that have made you happy!

    • I honestly got so excited about them haha. Exactly, and the lists will be good to look back on too! Hope you enjoy watching ‘You’!

  7. Your happy list is such a good idea! It’s a good way to express gratitude and take note of the little things that bring joy in life. The reclining seats in the cinema are so exciting, I’d be really happy about that since it adds just a little more comfort when sitting down to watch a film! I’ve been hearing so much about You recently that I think I am finally going to add it to my watch list!

  8. My inner perfectionist needs to take a step back too. It starts screaming the second I make the tiniest error. I love the sound of the happy list, such a great way of cherishing the smaller memories. I still haven’t seen You and I’m really mad at myself about it. I seriously need to find more time ? x

  9. Once I finish watching’Suit’ on Netflix I’ll be checking out ‘You.’ On subject of reclining cinema seats. New Year’s Eve, my lady and I, great meal out followed by Cinema, VIP seats, boy did they recline. Awesome. Apart from when you pick up your large box of popcorn, forgetting you are reclined and next thing you know …. thank god the lights were out. Back to blogging, yes I make money from it, written all sorts of articles, but the ones that really work are the ones you really enjoy writing, they’re the ones that call out to you with meaning. My suggestion to anyone is, blog because you love it and you have something to say.

  10. The Sweet Potato and Lentil Dhal looks delicious! I got obsessed with You on Netflix and me and my sister watched it in two days over Christmas, it is such a gripping series! I really hope there is a second series as there are so many unanswered questions. Also, yay for reclining cinema seats, I love the idea of a happy list, it is such a great way to remember special moments and stay positive. Thanks for sharing Evie <3 xx

  11. Oh, that dahl looks yummy. Will deffo be giving that one a go.
    I want to watch You, but rewatched Luther from the beginning so You is on my list of next to watch!

    I’ve been loving having soup for my lunch recently, filling and warming!

    Love your post!

  12. I totally agree with perfectionism taking a backseat! Perfectionism has hindered my blogging consistency in the past. I was pretty inconsistent with blogging during the second half of 2018, which I blame on perfectionism and on big life changes, but at the end of 2018, I was determined to get back into the habit of blogging, so I participated in Blogmas, blogging every day from December 1 through December 25. Daily blogging meant that I really couldn’t get caught up in perfection. Not being caught up in perfection allowed me to explore so many new ideas, instead of labouring over a few. // The Favourite received so many Critic’s Choice nominations! I hadn’t heard about it (am I living under a rock?) but I’m going to go look up a trailer soon haha. // I haven’t watched You yet because the premise seems kinda creepy and doesn’t intrigue me all that much, but so many people are talking about it, so perhaps I should give it a chance! *Adds to list of trailers to watch* -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    • Exactly! I let my perfectionism take control way too much sometimes, to the point where I stop writing completely. Well done for making it through Blogmas! Such a great way to let your ideas flow rather than being stuck with the same couple of blog posts for days. Yes it’s been nominated for so many awards! I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t my favourite (no pun intended, haha). Ah I honestly felt the same, but I was hooked after the first ending, and ended up routing for the psychopath which is slightly concerning haha. Thanks for reading Audrey x

  13. Sweet potato and lentil dahl!! That looks amazing. Glad you’ve found so many great things so far this year – I’m still waiting to start You, but it sounds fascinating and I can’t wait to get stuck in soon.

  14. My theater has those big comfy reclining seats which is great only if I don’t want to recline them my feet don’t touch the ground and that gets uncomfortable after awhile 🙂 Glad your year is off to a happy start!

  15. Oh hey, fellow British blogger!

    I love reclining seats, so definitely with you on being happy about that. I remember when I went to a cinema which had sofa seats. I was beside myself, lol. I binge watched ‘You’ over the hols and omg. It was so good. But I just have one question… why doesn’t Beck have curtains? It really infuriates me. Joe’s voice is really soothing, but he still creeps me out that I can’t get past that. I can’t root for him, at all D:

    Also, nabbing that recipe – looks absolutely delicious!

    • Hahaha it must just be me who routes for the psychotic freak then, need season 2! Yes! Definitely try the sweet potato dahl, so easy and it tastes amazing. Thanks for reading x
