The first month of 2021 is over and I’m not sad about it because that means we are closer to spring here in MN! Even though I love warmer weather, I do appreciate this time to slow down, stay inside, cozy up, and turn inward a bit.
Here are my January Favorites and what I’ve been into lately…
What I’ve Been Reading And Listening To
I’m one book ahead of schedule for my 2021 reading challenge. Last month I read more fiction books, reading all four of the Winter Street books by Elin Hilderbrand. I really enjoyed these books and they are great to read this time of year. I’ll link them all below.
I also read “In a Holidaze” which was another easy read. I listened to “Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed.” It was interesting to hear a therapist talk about their journey.
What I’ve Been Wearing
My new Acorn slippers are so cozy, warm, and comfortable! I think I found my new favorite slippers. I got the Women’s Original Acorn Moccasins in Buff Popcorn.
I’ve also been loving my MORE, MORE, MORE sweatshirt from good hYOUman. It’s a reminder of what I want to experience more of in my life. You can CLICK HERE to see it.
What I’ve Been Eating
Here are some things that were on my menu last month…
I’ve also been meal prepping WAY more and it is making such a difference in my week! CLICK HERE for the glass containers I have been loving. Sometimes you just need some new containers to inspire you to meal prep!
What I’ve Been Drinking
I’m a lover of hot chocolate and I don’t love all the sugar and junk in most hot chocolate mixes. Well, I found one that is not full of sugar and actually has supportive ingredients!!!
I’ve been using Laird Superfood Hot Chocolate, you can find it here. I love mixing it with Dandy Blend and Peppermint Mocha Nutpods.
Here is my quick recipe:
¼ cup Peppermint Mocha Nutpods – you could use any variety of Nutpods if you can’t find this flavor
1 cup hot water
1 heaping TBSP Dandy Blend
1 ½ TBSP Laird Superfood Hot Chocolate
How I’ve Been Relaxing
I’ve been relaxing in my zen room chair from West Elm. I had my eye on this chair for 10 months before it went on mega sale and I finally made the decision to get it! You can find it here. If you love it too, watch for it to go on sale again. It’s perfect because I can sit cross-legged and meditate in it and it’s comfortable for working on my laptop and reading!
I’ve Been getting Outside
We have still been getting outside and walking and I’m so glad we do! I always feel better when I get fresh air and movement even if it is cold.
I shared last month’s favorites post the cold weather gear that I love. You can find it here.
I want to share with you the boots we put on Badger so he doesn’t get ice balls and his paws don’t freeze. They actually stay on and work really well…Badger doesn’t like wearing them and he tolerates them fine!
