Happy Monday everyone! I’m starting this week off on a positive note by sharing with you a few of my favourite things from January. I didn’t make a New Year’s resolution per se, instead I’m continuing to focus on happiness in general. So here are a few things that are making me happy this month.
The trendiest New Year’s resolution of 2017! I’ve been contemplating starting a bullet journal for ages and I’m so happy I finally took the plunge. There are so many ways to personalize your bullet journal, fun supplies to buy, and great organizational ideas that I feel I may need to dedicate an entire post to bullet journaling in the future.
I have amassed quite the collection of lavender candles. Because, of course, this year I am focusing on things like self care and relaxation, I’ve really been enjoying lighting a few of them before bed and having some “me” time. My favourite one right now is a handmade one my mom picked up from a market this fall. It’s gorgeous and smells sooo good.
Let’s face it, January is rough. Christmas is over and now all we seem to have ahead of us is a long, cold winter. This past month, one of my strategies to feel better on those dreary winter mornings is to make delicious tropical smoothies. It’s like summer in a cup! Plus they’re packed with all sorts of nutrients. They are bound to make even the coldest winter days a feel a little warmer.
Vaseline Lip Chap
Such a small thing that weirdly makes a big difference. My entire body hates winter. My skin, lips, throat, eyes, hair, etc. are all so dry it’s disgusting. So these lip chaps have been life savers. They work so well plus they smell good.
What are you loving this month? Do you have anything that makes you happy during such a cold, dreary season?
