January in 1:1 snaps.

January 29th  •  Posted in Lifestyle

January is definitely not one of my favourite months: with the whole going back to the usual routine, feeling you might have gained a few extra lbs during the Holiday that you need to fix, the grey and cold days, things can be a bit stressful and depressing. We were lucky to see a bit of sunshine now and again and to be able to spend some lovely days, but all in all January could be a lot better than it was! But since my only main resolution for this 2015 is to try and be positive as much as possible and appreciate the little things that maybe, under a different point of view, are really what made the whole thing worth, I’ll try to start a new blog series to share a few 1:1 snaps from my month coming directly from my Instagram (or phone) and list down the highlights of the past 30 days, at least 5 of those little things that I should really start to appreciate a lot more.

Hopefully I’ll be able to keep going with this little blog project and won’t abandon it after only a few months (as it happens all the time!). So these were the highlights of this first month of 2015…

1 :: The satisfying feeling of finding new clothes that fits you perfectly between the bargains of winter sales, and above all being able to find a dress that not only will be appropriate for these last winter weeks, but I’m sure will be worn a lot during spring too!

2 :: Getting to see someone who means a lot to you but who you weren’t able to see for years. Sometimes it only feels too late, but not always it is.

3 :: Getting into the habit of drinking green tea once a day. I’ve always known how good it is for our bodies but I was never able to really enjoy it until this month, when I decided to try this gem and discovered even green tea can be such a treat!

4 :: Receiving the most delicious parcel that has ever been. It truly made my day that afternoon when I unwrapped all that chocolate with the excitement of a little happy girl! Thank you again, Lindt, for being such a sweet Valentine to me this year! I seriously feel so lucky every time I receive those delish treats – so expect to be bombarded with pictures, recipes, reviews of them in the very upcoming future!

5 :: Latte stencils are being the highlight of my mornings lately! I’ve spent an entire morning designing and creating a few and am now experimenting with techniques to get an aesthetically pleasing latte + a velvety foam. Maybe one day I’ll be able to experiment with true latte art – in the meanwhile just check out this video/art work, cutest thing ever, it will make you smile!

  • I know what you mean about January! I always feel like it’s extra hard to get back to the routine. Plus we usually come back from a family vacation and I feel generally down because I miss them so much. Then I also feel this urge to be very productive and achieve a lot because it’s the beginning of the year and I end up feeling exhausted. On the good side, though, it finally starts to get lighter and the days are getting longer reminding me of the inevitable approach of the better seasons <3 🙂

  • Lovely post! January is a bit of a dull month, isn’t it? I’ve been trying to drink at least one cup of green tea a day too, and so far it’s going well. I’m actually liking the taste now! Lucky you on receiving that parcel from Lindt – their chocolate is just the best 🙂
