Welcome to a brand new blog series called Nice News! ✧・ﾟ:*
In the weekly ‘Nice News’ publication, you will find happy news ONLY from around the globe. No negative news at all will be included within Nice News. From new baby animals in the world to comical and heartwarming stories, I hope that this weekly publication will bring you joy and smiles. I hope that this brings some happiness during such an uncertain, scary time.
Welcome to the first ever edition of Nice News. Woohoo!
I feel as though, whenever I read the news whether it’s via a physical paper, online or via social media, it’s always so negative and often false/exaggerated. I wanted to instead creative a positive and 100% truthful news outlet to bring you happy and ‘nice’ news. I understand we are humans are weird and like reading a bit of drama but we like some positive news too! I think we all need some now if ever…
Positive, Happy and heartwarming news is what you will find here every week. News to make you calm rather than concerned, amused rather than anxious. Nice news has been created by Lauren Blogs to brighten the globe’s mood and especially during the tough and uncertain times that is the COVID-19 pandemic. Smiles and laughs are encouraged! Grab a hot (or cold and refreshing) drink, sweet treat and have a relaxing read.
I will be posting an edition of Nice News every single Wednesday at 6 pm UK time for the foreseeable future. If you would like to get involved and submit a story for next week’s edition then please do email Laurencurrieenquiries@gmail.com. I would love for you, my readers to get involved with this positive publication.
Stay indoors, safe, healthy and happy!

Animal Crossing: New horizons! Virtual wedding?
People have been using Animal Crossing: New Horizons for birthdays, weddings and dates while stuck inside during Isolation thanks to the Corona virus. Animal Crossings have recently released their new and highly anticipated game New Horizons just in time for a world wide lockdown.
The director named Aya Kyogoku hopes that the game will bring some calm in a time of so much uncertainty. Many people have been using it to catch-up with friends, go on dates with their partners and even hold a wedding ceremony as theirs has been postponed or cancelled.
