LITTLE JAR OF HAPPINESS – HAPPY HEADS & HEARTS >

By Angelina Tully 

It’s with great pleasure I welcome (the gorgeous and super talented!), Angelina Tully, to She is, Sarah Jane. Angel is a year 10 student at Tintern Grammar, where I too completed my secondary education. I’ve been lucky enough to have Angel with me all week for work experience and I can’t wait to share what we’ve been up to! Today on the blog I’m handing it over to my new right-hand man, who has covered a very special initiative and event we attended yesterday. Please make her feel welcome! SJ x


A friend of mine once told me how flowers and plants around you are supposed to brighten your mood. I guess that goes hand in hand with the saying: stop and smell the roses… Which is exactly what the Little Jar of Happiness initiative is trying to do, and what we were lucky enough to experience yesterday. Little Jar of Happiness aims to do just that – spread happiness! 

Mary Mary Studio owner and close friend of Sarah Jane’s, Kate McLean, founded the #littlejarofhappiness initiative in 2014 to support beyondblue for Mental Health Week. Kate is passionate about encouraging the conversation and helping to spread awareness about depression and anxiety. These beautiful little jars range from $25 to $65, and are a compilation of the seasons finest flowers. Each jar is unique and a great way to let someone special know you are thinking of them.

I’ve personally had friends who have suffered from mental health problems, and it can often be hard for us to know how to support them in the best way. Little Jar of Happiness hopes by spreading the message of “happy heads and hearts”, to brighten the days of those who might be struggling.  

During Mental Health Week each year, 50% of the profits are donated to beyondblue. Outside of Mental Health Week, Kate kindly donates $2.50 from each jar sold – this is just amazing.

Yesterday SJ and I were among the lucky few included in a very special and intimate event and celebration – the official launch of Little Jar of Happiness. We began with a session led by a clinical psychologist from Inner Melbourne Clinical Psychology, where we workshopped some techniques on mindfulness and self-compassion. Plate Got Ate catered our delicious lunch afterwards. To finish the day off, we participated in a flower arranging class run by Kate herself, where we were able to make our own #flowersforgood. We both connected with some great people and other leading influencers in their respective professions. We shared a lot of laughs, some tears and all shared our own stories and advice about mental health. A huge thank you to The Vibe Tribe for organising this fantastic event!

SJ has worked with Kate on a number of occasions and has loved the personality and beauty of each of her arrangements and installations. Of course there was no exception to this with the gorgeous #littlejarofhappiness project and their devotion to happy heads and hearts at yesterday’s event.
