January & February throwback

Back on New Year’s Eve, I posted about my lack of New Year’s Resolutions – apart from that the resolution to keep track of everything that I”m proud of, month by month so that I can look back on it at the end of 2015.

Some bloggers write “monthly favourites” posts – this is my take on it.


This month I read…

– The Drowning of Arthur Braxton.  Much darker than my usual choice of book, but it had been recommended to me by a few friends, so I thought I’d give it a go.  I really loved it & was pleasantly surprised!

This month I listened to…

– First Aid Kit. Lots and lots of First Aid Kit. I went to see them live in this month too, and they most definitely did not disappoint!

This month I watched…

– Pretty Little Liars. I’ve been absolutely hooked on this since I saw a trailer for it, and I’ve been binge watching it for the past couple of months!

This month I am most proud of…

– Completing a jewellery course- 4 full Sundays in the back of a little local bead shop. I’ll do a full post about this with a few pictures once I’ve got my mess of a desk sorted.

And my favourite things of the month…

These two candles. I’ve never really bought myself scented candles before, but now I don’t know how I could not have one burning when I’m making jewellery, or watching Netflix!

Lily Flame candle – Fairy Dust
Muji – Winter Berry & Black Tea


This month I read…

– Grace’s Guide book. I’ve been dipping in and out of this all month, but haven’t had a huge amount of time! It’s a great read, and has been keeping me amused on the odd train journey or lunch breakwhen I have a moment to myself!

This month I listened to…

– Katzenjammer. I’ve liked them for a while, but have only listened to a few of their songs more than a few times. However, I tend to listen to Radio 2 on weekend mornings (I know, I know!) and they’ve been playing their new single, “Lady Grey” a LOT. Needless to say, I’m hooked!

This month I watched…

– Pretty Little Liars. Still. I-just-need-to-know-who-a-is-and-then-I’ll-be-happy.

This month I am most proud of…

– Starting my journey to being that little bit healthier. I may not have had time to go to the gym, but I’ve gone 20 days without chocolate. Not a huge amount of time, I know -but for a self-confessed chocollic like me, it’s a big step!

And my favourite things of the month…

– The “Happy Goals” app. I’ve had it on my phone for a while, but it’s been dormant until now! I use it as a tally of my chocolate-free days (I’m on target for 25!) and I’lll besetting myself new targets and challenges soon too. I want to set targets for reading, films and…perhaps blog posts and video posts over the next year!

Until next month!
