January is always a funny old month isn’t it. A contradictory month of new beginnings and winter blues all at the same time. The come down after the festive season, and yet the positivity of a fresh start.
But amongst all of it, i have some things that make me happy, new discoveries, old favourites and just some general curiosities…
So here it is, January’s Stuff I Love
Yup i fell on to the silver shoe bandwagon that i thought i would otherwise ignore. But no regrets! I have to say i absolutely love them. They act as a neutral so go with everything and anything and they add instant pizzazz to any outfit, which lets face it pizzazz is always welcome! Plus absolute bargain price! Be prepared for lots of outfit posts with these beauties adorning my tootsies.
I’m really trying to radiate positive thoughts this year, much much more than i have before. I find it so easy to fall back in to old negative ways and forget that to have a positive experience you need to put positive thoughts out there. I truly believe in the Law of Attraction (Remember The Secret? It did the rounds a few years ago, remove the cheesiness and basically, that!)Put out in to the world what you want, and we all only ever want positive change don’t we? Its just remembering we are worthy and capable of such things. I’m trying to remind myself daily of this with positive quotes (cheers pintrest!).
Wedding Outfit attire
Yup i have potentially 2 events this year starting in Spring, and so i have started the grand hunt for the guest attire. I absolutely love these pretty occasion dresses, aren’t they lovely? Perfect for weddings etc and they don’t cost the earth! I am all about economising where possible, and these are pretty, and kind to my purse, therefore i’m happy, the husbands happy, we’re allll happy.
I’m loving all things bardot at the moment. So elegant and chic, a great choice for an occasion dress. Now to go floral or more plain?
I love when a cafe offers vegan options and will happily adapt to GF also. Garlands Cowbridge is my new fave haunt. Their soya cappuccinos are delicious, as is their vegan brunch, with spicy beans, hash browns and smashed avocado! They also substituted the bread for more mushrooms for me, which makes them saintly in my eyes 🙂 If you’re in the South Wales area i highly recommend.
Reading and our #GR8BookChat
I love to read, always have, but i do go through phases where i read more than others. But with our Book chat on Instagram (GR8BookChat) i’m reading lots more different genres of books and absolutely love it. January’s book was The Dead Wife’s Handbook, which we will be having a relaxed chat on IG next Monday, anyone is welcome. We have just posted our 4 choices to the account for everyone to vote what our February book will be!
Tv: The Good Wife
I know i know, I’m sooo behind with the times its scary, but see above.. i love to read, which means i sometimes don’t watch a lot of TV. It has to be a very good series to keep me watching, and i have to say i am really enjoying the strong female role of The Good wife. Julianna Marguiles is a brilliant actress which i remembered from ER, which drew me in to start, i also heard Jeffrey Dean Morgan is also in the series (which i’m not up to yet) which was also another pull for me to watch, because he is also one of my absolute favourite actors..ahem.. not to mention that knee buckling smile of his ?. SO yes.. so far, very good, to the point where i have to drag myself away from binge watching episode after episode.
So there we have my favourite things in January so far..
What have you enjoyed? Any good TV? The husband and i are looking for a good series to get in to, any recommendations?
And have you purchased anything you’ve loved?
