Did you know today is the office International Day of Happiness? Well, it is, and we couldn’t think of a cooler day to celebrate by telling you what makes the LOOK team happy. From shoes to movie soundtracks, it takes all sorts to put a smile on our faces.
Deputy Fashion News Editor Gemma Gow says her hot pink, bejeweled Ted Baker court shoes never fail to brighten up a grey day – or outfit for that matter – and we can see why. While Gemma’s knockout pair are from a few season’s ago, the style is a Ted Baker signature, so look out for them in cool new colours this spring.
For Freelance Junior Fashion News Assistant George Driver, the secret to feeling happy is her West Side Story soundtrack. Why? According to her, there’s a song for every mood, it’s perfect for dancing around the house to on a Sunday morning and hey, who wouldn’t want to be Maria?
Two-and-a half year-old son Zak fills Assistant Editor Claire Sanderson with joy. The blonde cutie is the centre of her world and makes her smile first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Aww, pass us a tissue!
From one kind of baby to another – Freelance Fashion Stylist Lucie Clifford’s sausage dog Touie. The most stylish miniature Daschund on the block, he acted as ring bearer at Lucie’s wedding, walking down the aisle in a mustard waistcoat and necktie that coordinated with the groom’s outfit. We have no words.
Head of Fashion News Lucy Wood is all about daffodils when it comes to feeling happy right now. A total signifier of spring, she ‘s currently filling every room in her new house with the pretty yellow blooms. And when you can get them for a bargainous £1 a bunch, why not?
Victoria Adegboyega, LOOK’s Senior Picture Researcher says her collection of Nike sportswear puts a smile on her face because it’s super bright and shakes up her usual head-to-toe black style and helps with that much-needed motivation to hit the treadmill. Sounds good to us!
Unsurprisingly, Freelance Beauty Assistant Victoria Jowett calls on her signature red lippie to lift her spirits and her look. As we all know, you’ve can be having the biggest bad hair/outfit day and somehow a slick of the red stuff somehow just makes it alright!
Finally, Designer Hannah Wilson says holidays make her happy. And trust us, she knows – she has a lot! Whether she’s mini-breaking with her friends in Rome or hitting the Big Apple with her sister, getting away from the grind, having time to read books and getting a serious tan all help to put a smile on her face.
So, now you know what makes the LOOK ladies happy, but what about you? Let us know below or Tweet us @lookmagazine. Happy International Day of Happiness!
