So January is finally over, it kinda felt like quite a long month to me. I’m happy to see February, in hope that the weather starts to improve, and of course it is a month closer to meeting my bubba! So I wanted to share with you my favourites from the month. Here are my January faves…
1. Feeling Cosy
I have been wrapping myself up so much this month, it has been rather chilly here in England! We’ve had a bit of snow over the last few months, which doesn’t happen every year. I must admit, I do love the way the snow looks. But it can be a bit annoying once it turns to ice and gets dangerous. I’ve been throwing on my chunky knits, boots, cute hats and scarves most days to try to beat the chill. And of course when I’ve been at home I’ve been putting my comfy PJs on, wrapping myself up in a blanket and having lovely warm drinks. There’s nothing nicer than feeling all warm and cosy. That being said, I am totally excited for Spring too!
2. Taking Care of Myself
January was totally full on for me. And at some points, felt like quite a struggle. Its been a combo of work/home/general craziness and tiredness from being pregnant. So I was grateful for any chance I got to relax and take care of myself. Baths are always a winner for me, and it has to be filled with bubbles so I couldn’t resist this bath bomb from Bomb Cosmetics. It was absolutely what I needed on a Sunday evening and I totally need to do it more often.
3. Gifts for the Bubba
Since being able to share our exciting news in December and over Christmas, we have been able to fully throw ourselves into buying stuff for our little one this month. And it has been the most fun! Clothes, furniture, and lots of little goodies, it has been so nice to do. One of the things I did get for the little one was this box from the lovely people at Letterbox Gifts. You might remember I featured them last month too in my faves as my Hubs had got me the mum to be box for Christmas. Well, I shared a pic of that box and ended up winning their photo of the month comp! So they very kindly allowed me to choose my own box to be sent so I went for the new baby box ready for June. Isn’t it just the cutest? I can’t wait to use the products on my little one once they are born.
4. Date Night
So in January we had a date night. It was a lovely treat from my Hubster, after I’d moaned I hadn’t seen much of him that week. It was on a Friday night and it was at our wedding venue Hogarths. We had such a great time! We went quite early whilst the restaurant was quiet so it kind of felt like we had the place to ourselves so got a lot of attention. The food was as amazing as I remember, and I always love being back at our special place. This is a snap of the lovely chocolate orange cheesecake I had. I’m looking forward to our next date night in February for Valentine’s Day. I think we ought to make the most of date night whilst we still can!
5. Sour Sweets
So I’ve always loved sour sweets. But during my pregnancy so far, it has gone to a brand new level! If given a choice of sweets, I will always go for the sour ones. I’m not sure what it is all about but I’m totally rolling with it! These sour jelly beans from The Jelly Bean Factory were in my November Degustabox (check out my review here) and I couldn’t get enough of them this month. I also love Haribo Tangfastics. Yum!
So these are my January faves. What do you think? What were you loving in January? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time…
