January was a very long month, it just seemed to drag and drag. So what did I get up to this month? Well I continued to eat like it was Christmas, some of my favourite shows started back up, I started a new little temporary job and made some very exciting decisions (all shall be revealed in my next Road So Far Catch Up). January was very up and down for me, the fact that it dragged made me feel like I was in some kind of never ending rut and looking back, I didn’t spend enough time doing the things that make me happy. Here’s hoping that February decides to kick it up a notch!
Family Don’t End With Blood
I got this book for Christmas and it’s honestly one of the best things I opened. I’m very late to the party I know but I’m here, accounted for and ready for action. I’ll admit that I haven’t read an awful lot of this, purely because it’s something I want to take my time with. I want to savour every chapter and will only pick it up when I have the time and attention to do so. I look forward to finally finishing it – especially since Jared’s chapter is last and it will probably no doubt make me cry buckets.
I have been looking for a pair of boots like this for ages but I didn’t want to pay a silly amount for them. So when I saw this pair in the ASOS sale I jumped on them. And they are beautiful. So comfortable and so soft, it might be one of my favourite purchases so far this year. I’m a little bit worried about how they’ll hold up in the rain, especially the fur, because I think they’re the sort to get ruined when wet, maybe I’ll have to invest in some protection spray, if you have any recommendations leave them down in the comments down below. The other plus to these are that they definitely go with the vibe I’m going for for #SPNUK in May! Double win!
Sainsbury’s Mug and Bowl
I love these. If you don’ know me, I have a thing with mugs. I like to have a different mug for every different beverage, which means I have a tea mug, coffee mug, hot chocolate mug and so on. (Obviously my tea mug collection is a little out of control seeing as tea practically runs through my veins!) I saw these in Sainsbury’s ages ago and I was waiting and waiting for them to go in the sale and they did just before Christmas! Not only do I love the colour of these, I love the texture. There is something so satisfying about the texture of these bits – I’m really sad that I didn’t get anymore before they sold out but they do have similar mugs in grey and yellow – now I just need to find room!
The Good Place
I’m still not 100% sure on this, which begs the question, why is it in my monthly favourites? Well I got completely up to date in the space of three days. And it wasn’t just out of boredom, because I actually found myself trying to make time to watch the next episode and stayed up late watching the last few in bed. So there’ definitely something about it that I like, but I can’ put my finger on what. I love the concept, the cast is amazing and the comedy isn’t half bad either (although it wasn’t always great). While I probably wouldn’t rewatch it, it’s definitely worth a watch. If you have half an hour to spare and you need something to watch, give this a try.
Cadbury Vanilla Mousse Bunny
I know! It’s ridiculous that you can even buy these yet, but I kid you not, we almost have an aisle full of Easter eggs at work already!! I’ve never been a huge fan of Easter eggs (except the Galaxy ones, because hello, who doesn’ love Galaxy) but truth be told, I’m not a huge chocolate lover. However, I love it when they bring out the little Easter snacks! These Cadbury Bunnies are by far my absolute favourite and I have ended up picking up a few during every lunch break, so there’s definitely no chance of me losing any weight now!
What did you get up to last month, I can’t be the only person that thought it lasted far too long? What were your favourites? Let me know in the comments below!
