100 happy things, 11-20

Continuing with part 2/10 of things that make me happy!

11. My Little Pony

Another pretty obvious one since I love customizing them ;) But I also love the retro MLP design, like the one on this t-shirt that I bought today:

12. Allison Harvard

Yes, the lovely runner-up of two seasons of America’s Next Top Model. She’s just so beautiful and her art is inspiring! I just get really happy every time I have a look at her Tumblr (http://allisonelisabeta.tumblr.com/)! I’ve tried to draw her many times but the images never do her justice : ) Here’s an attempt at it anyway:

13. Berlin

Ehehe, another obvious one. Berlin inspires me to do fashion design and improve my photography skills! It’s my favorite city in the world!

Both photos are from the Festival of lights, 2012 & 2013.

14. Peanut M&M’s

Just realized again how good they are. Mmmmmm…

15. H&M clothes

Yes, yes, H&M is a cheap brand, but I LOVE some of their clothes! More importantly they frequently have CAT THEMED CLOTHES!! How can I not love them?! Plus they also have cool Star Wars clothes at times:

16. Christmas, Valentine’s Day and other holidays

I just love them because you can invest as much effort into them as you want! You can have totally cheesy-over-the-top romantic dates on Valentine’s, decorate the house on Christmas and Halloween and hide eggs around the house on Easter. They’re just nice days that give you permission to be a little crazy ^_^

Last year I went completely over the top with the Christmas stuff. I even made Game of Thrones-themed snowflakes at work to decorate my colleague’s wall!

Valentine’s Day was spent in Berlin this year. Soo romantic!

17. Face Off

The TV series. I’m OBSESSED with it. I just love seeing the creative process that goes into creating a character/creature design. It’s really fascinating. It’s also a bit similar to customizing because of the sculpting and painting ; ) It really inspires me to put more effort into my customs! Tyler from this season (season 6) also makes me happy, he’s just so positive and talented!

18. Video game music

I think I’ve mentioned this before? I love video game music, especially from old Nintendo games. My favorite right now is Stickerbrush Symphony from Donkey Kong Country 2. It’s soooooo good!

19. Zelda N64 games

Speaking of video games, some of the best music ever comes from The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask. The games are also incredible, I have to play them over and over again! They just make me really happy! I also have a few MM-themed customs planned ; )

20. Sushi

Sushi always makes me happy! It reminds me of my sister (we used to have a lot of DIY sushi evenings at her place when she still lived in Finland) and it’s often really good! We actually had sushi one night here in Tokyo and it turned out to be one of the most hysterically funny dinners I’ve experienced in a long time! Yet another good sushi memory!

Some amazingly good sushi in Amsterdam.

This is fun! Writing about things that make me happy makes me really happy! ^_^
