Happy World Smile Day! After a year like no other it couldn’t have come soon enough. We’ve been waiting for some wholesome goodness and today is that day. Get ready to switch of with us and feel good with these reasons to smile …

Nothing beats putting the world to rights with your ride or dies. Late night catch ups with the group chat literally feed our souls.

Deep fried, sugar glazed, dream filled, doughy delights. Need we say more? Order a tray for yourself as the ultimate act of self-care or share the love (and smiles!)

Waking up to sun when the forecast predicted rain is like winning the jackpot except everybody wins! Unexpected sunny autumnal walks with a hot choc to go will always makes us grin from ear to ear.

Seriously, lock us in a room filled with puppies and we’d be happy forever. They’re just so precious! Same goes for cats … tbh anything fluffy and ridiculously cute will do the job.

Our favourite act of kindness? Treating a friend or stranger ‘just because’. Buy the person behind you a coffee, pick up a sandwich for a homeless person or gift your bestie flowers to spread the smiles.

Give us a new Drag Race season or a juicy Netflix original to binge and we’ll be grinning from ear to ear. Case in point, the nation’s favourite, Great British Bake Off, is back and life feels complete once again.

We are finally living our autumnal fantasy and couldn’t be happier. The days are getting shorter, jumpers are a style staple, hot chocolate becomes its own food group and cancelling plans for a cosy night in is socially acceptable. Bliss.

Nothing beats the feeling when your phone lights up and it’s a ‘thinking about you’ message from an old friend. Return the favour and reach out to the people you love. Life is short so why not spend it making people feel good?

Keep the smiles going and treat yourself to something new ...
