My 5 faviourite things about January.

Hey readers,

Finally, after a long old month, it is no February, so I thought that it would be good to reflect back over the month of things that I have been loving. I want to share you my five highlights over the past month that I have been enjoying, it is a great way to celebrate the good things in life. 




1. Pure. 

This is a new programme on Channel Four that shows the effects of a women's life living with pure O OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) where the main symptoms of the condition is that have obsessive and intrusive thoughts. 
As a suffer from OCD it is rather refreshing to see a portrait of the deliberating condition that is not cleaning based for once. Plus, I think it is great to see pure O being made aware off as not many people have heard of this type of OCD. 

2. Minimalism. 

I have kind of been doing this for a few months with having two days a week where I don't spend a penny. I find following this method really helped. It does get easier and it makes you think about money in a different light. 

I have also been conscious of what I have been buying and trying to reduce impulsive buying. I have also made sure that I follow a list of items that I have banned from buying such as nail varnish. I already have a ton of nail polishes for example and as lovely as it is getting something new, there is something more pleasurable about getting something that is needed as opposed to desire. I feel I am not wasting money on stuff that I don't need. Instead only buying items that I genuine need makes me feel more happy about the way I view money. 

3. Bath. 

I don't often have a bath but have had a couple in the past month and I have been enjoying just lying back in the water and just being present without any distractions. I feel as I get older I am becoming more relaxed with being still, which I have always found pretty hold to do as I have a short attention span and feel the pressure to be doing something. Just letting go element is really beneficial to my mental health. 

4. Wolly jumpers. 

As the weather has drastically changed and plummeted in low numbers in January I have embraced woolly jumpers. They are so warm and comforting. I basically just love being snug and wrapped in warmth.

5. Soup. 

With continuing with the theme of warmth and whether I have been enjoying eating soup to warm the old cockles up. I find soup so comforting especially after you have been out in the cold and eating something warm is bliss to me.

So, there you have my five favourite things about January that I have been loving. What kind of things has been making you happy last month? Love to hear your thoughts. 

Cheers for reading x

  2. What is it about winter and baths? It is the month have most too, so warming and comforting. I love your 2 days of not spending idea, I actually manage days at a time, but only be defalt as we live in the middle of nowhere so I actually have to drive some way to spend any money at all, I'd find it hard if I had shops close by. #Twinklytuesday
