Monthly Favourites: January 2017

Whoa! It’s my first monthly faves of 2017 – so welcome to Monthly Favourites January 2017!

January usually draaaaags for me (let’s be honest, it’s the worst month of the year) but this time round it’s been speeding by!

Let’s take a look at some of the things that have rocked this month.

seeing: La La Land. OMG. This. movie. is. amazing. Go see it! We’ve seen it twice at the cinema and I’d totally go again. It’s absolutely wonderful. The performances, the music, the directing… it really is worth the hype which is not always the case when a movie gets loads of good reviews as you tend to set your expectations sky high and get let down. But nope. Not this time!

drinking: lots of smoothies. I’ve got into the habit of having a smoothie for breakfast everyday and it still blows my mind that they genuinely do fill you up. I got a Nutribullet for Christmas which I mentioned in December’s monthly faves, and I am a big fan.

wearing: all of the layers. It’s started getting bitterly cold now, and the office at work also gets freezing so I’ve been piling on the layers which is good because I’ve also been piling on the lbs. Oops.

booking: tickets to see A Curious Incident… and Peter James’ new play. Liam got A Curious Incident of a Dog in the Night Time tickets for Christmas so we booked it in to go up to London and see it in March. Then Mum asked me if I wanted to go and see a Peter James (her favourite author) play in February so I’m going to have a very theatrical couple of months! I am totally tempted to try and get tickets for The Cursed Child again but it’s so expensive (although totally worth it if you can go).

buying: the most gorgeous wellies from Joules. I bought them so I could go out for walks on my lunch breaks which I am admittedly yet to do but whatever they are beautiful.

going on: wintery walks. I started doing this before work for a few days – then it got rainy. I need to start doing it again because I am so lucky to have such stunning surroundings during the week.

celebrating: seven years! On 25th January is mine and Liam’s anniversary. I cannot believe it’s been seven years. My previous relationship lasted a year and a half so that should put things into perspective!

eating: easter chocolate. I know, I’m the worst. But I just can’t resist Lindt bunnies! I am tempted to do Dechox again this year (giving up chocolate for the whole of March to raise money for the British Heart Foundation), so I guess I’ll have to start cutting down soon to ease the transition!

joining the gym: y’know to try and counteract the easter chocolate.

That’s pretty much it for January! It’s always a weird month which feels like a hangover after Christmas and New year celebrations…

What made your January jovial?

    Oh my god, January seemed to drag on for ages!! Everyone else is saying it went so fast, though. What? Haha. Congrats on your anniversary – I celebrated six years with my fiance in January and, like you, my previous relationship was about a year, year and a half long! Haha. Hope February is lovely to you <3
