What makes you happy?

Today is International Day of Happiness, which was introduced by the UN in 2012 to recognise ‘the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world and the importance of their recognition in public policy objectives’ as well as to be a useful reminder that the happiness comes from family, friends and good emotional well-being rather than money and fame.

This leads me to a question: who is actually celebrating this day โ€“ the happy ones, or the ones looking for happiness?

A walk in Christ Church Meadow

The other day Ben and I were lucky to go for a walk in Christ Church Meadow with a wonderful photographer Roxy – @21gramsphotography.

She actually found me on instagram and offered us a romantic shoot – and if you know me, you’d know that there is no way I’d say no to a photoshoot! You’ve heard about the proposal, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

What happened to Po in ’17

Weโ€™re getting closer to the end of 2017 and I would like to review it โ€“ to savour the memories whilst they are still clear and write them down, so that I wonโ€™t forget.

What a year it has been! So much has happened, so many boxes have been ticked, so many great memories and realisations #adulting ๐Ÿ™‚

So letโ€™s start.

January 2017

Iโ€™ve started the year dressed as a police officer, and 12 days later (donโ€™t forget, my birthday is on 12th of January!), I was the karaoke princess celebrating hitting a quarter of a century at the Mad Hatter.

The next day we went on a ski trip, which Iโ€™m sure youโ€™ve read about and might have even seen the video. (…and if you haven’t, go for it! :))

All in all,ย my month was fantastic, so 2017 had a really good start.

‘I don’t vote. I don’t see the point…’

Iย was recently involved in a conversation about the upcoming General Elections and one lady said that she doesn’t believe in elections:

‘I don’t vote, I don’t see the point. One party promises to cut taxes, another to increase benefits, but all these things are small and unimportant. No matter who’s elected, they will still go and drop bombs on people and make huge nation- and life-changing decisions without public’s input.’

She was mostly opposed, with others in the discussionย suggesting that she should show that she feels this way and still go to the polling station and just cross out the ballot as a sign of protest.


Estimated 64% of 18-24 year old didn’t bother voting in Brexit referendum, and look where it got us.

I don’t get to vote at the general election, but if I did, I would 100% go to the polling station and voteย to make a point of my views.

You should too. Don’t forget to register to vote before 22nd of May.
