February 25th • Posted in Lifestyle
As much as January‘s been a tough month, I’ve tried and approached February in a slightly more positive way. I need the warmer weather to be here so badly, the winter blues’ve totally hit me recently and only on the odd warm spring-like days I totally felt renewed! I’m super excited for the new month and the new season to come, but I must admit, between some forgettable episodes, February has seen some nice highlights too (and a lot of coffee – can you guess it from these pictures?!).
On my February happy list…
1 :: Valentine’s Day! It’s been a good one this year! We actually got to spend it by our own for almost the entire day, doing romantic and love-themed things (like putting together an indoor picnic with wine and chocolate and baking heart-shaped brownies) that we never really “find” time to do on an average day together.
2 :: Going back to the pool and swim at least once a week has been one of the best things about this month! I’ve always loved swimming and being in the water and sometimes I really can’t believe how easy it is for me to forget how good and renewed I feel afterwards! I really need to stick to it in the future… oh, and I’m also loving yoga quite a lot lately, mostly thanks to Adriene!
3 :: The little joys that come with having a daily diary, a one place where to keep my notes and to-do lists and tasks. Bonus points if it’s as cute as Frankie Diary.
4 :: This has not lasted the whole month, but I tried to switch off the technologies and instead read before going to sleep. It felt quite nice while it lasted, but I’m a creature of habit and always go back to my phone and Instagram feed. *But* I’m going to try and make it a real thing the next month.
5 :: Healthy eating or in general a healthier approach to life! I’m really enjoying taking care of myself and what I put into my body, but most of all, I truly deeply enjoy discovering new ingredients, especially if they’re good!
Bonus :: that feeling when someone buys you flowers! Especially if they’re tulips!
