Here are some of my favorite things that January brought me:
Ed Sheeran graced us all within the first week of the new year with TWO new singles, ‘Shape of You’ and ‘Castle on the Hill.’ And they did not disappoint. (But, I will say it’s a huge bummer that we don’t get the entire album until March).
Three Wick Bath & Body Candles
So I’m probably late to the party with this one, but now I am obsessed. I love candles – but these ones are some of my absolute favorites. My roommate had one in her room and whenever she lit it, the entire apartment smelled incredible. I bought two for myself (Winter, Frosted Cranberry) and I honestly cannot get enough.
I found this little book in Barnes and Noble one day. Each page gives little tips and life advice. I try (didn’t always succeed) in reading one each day in the morning. After reading it, I would take the time to really digest what it was saying. Life is short and important. It is so crucial that we all remember to live and not just exist.
I made a promise to myself that I would be healthier this year. And I am proud of myself for doing pretty damn well with meal prepping. Lunches on campus are hard for me because I don’t have time to go home and cook anything. If I wanted to grab something at one of the dining places on campus, it would not be the healthiest. So each Sunday I meal prepped grilled chicken and assorted veggies (carrots, broccoli, and brussel sprouts). It didn’t even take long to do and then it ensured I had something healthy to eat for lunch everyday.
I plan to stick to meal prepping in February, but maybe I’ll mix up the meal a little.
I’ve always loved 80s movies, but there was something that made me really into this month apparently. Netflix was a pretty good selection to choose from. I watched some classics I’ve seen before (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off), but I made sure to watch some new oldies too (Like the creepy, but awesome Heathers).
The Juice Jar
The Juice Jar is a cute little local place in my college town that sells healthy juices, smoothies, and food. I’ve been dying to try it and my friends and I finally went this month! I ordered the Good JuJu juice. I think I’m more of a smoothie person so I’ll be sure to go for that next time. But overall, I loved the quaint atmosphere and that it was all super healthy!
