In January I've Loved: my January favourites 2017

In January I've Loved...

OK so I’m not sure where the time’s gone already, and it’s only the beginning of the year, but January it’s already over when the year seems to be just started to me! Anyone else?

This last month I’ve been all about staying cosy, being healthier and grab inspiration everywhere, and this is perfectly reflected in my January favourites selection! So here are a few things I’ve loved this last month…

January Favourites: Neal's Yard Rose Facial Wash

Rose Facial Wash – Neal’s Yard


This month my beauty regimen has been extremely basic, even more than the usual, but one thing I was excited to try was this 100% organic Neal’s Yard Rose Facial Wash I’ve been meaning to buy for quite a while now. This cleanser is making me excited to get out of bed every morning (even though I swear I can’t feel my feet everytime they pop out of the duvet) just for its amazing and calming rose scent!

It’s a pleasure to use: so nicely gentle, refreshing and easy to apply, it makes for the perfect morning and evening cleansing routine. Apparently it’s one of Neal’s Yard best sellers and I can easily see why!

January Favourites: Pukka relaxing tea and NothingFishy Omega 3 tablets
January Favourites: Omega 3 algae-based tablets by NothingFishy

Organic Relax Vata Tea – Pukka ; Algae Omega 3 ℅ NothingFishy


You know I love my nighttime teas, and I just needed the perfect excuse to incorporate the same flavours and scents in my everyday tea. So this Pukka option, featuring organic chamomile, fennel and marshmallow root, totally felt very appropriate this January. Everytime I curl up with a cup of this sweet tea, I can’t help but enter a cosy and calm mood that’s doing a lot of good to concentration and with helping to switch off!

Over the course of the last few years, I’ve been very interested into implementing Omega 3 into my diet but have always struggled to find tablets that didn’t taste fishy or contained any fish oil at all. I was so excited to be introduced to NothingFishy!

They make Omega 3 tablets from algae only, because the actual primary source of Omega 3, and also where fishes are getting them in a first place, are algae (of course, why didn’t I discover that earlier?!). This also means you’re not getting all the nasties and pollution that fishes absorb from the sea, because their algae are grown in a controlled environment. Aside from the fact that the packaging is extremely nice, I’m really loving these tablets a lot this month: being vegetarian, I’m excited to have found an Omega 3 alternative that’s healthy and environment-friendly and completely vegan. Do check them out!

January favourites: cosy and soft wool from Drops and De Rerum Natura
January favourites: How To Style Your Brand book

Knitting wool: Drops Alpaca Silk & De Rerum Natura Ulysse ; Book: How To Style Your Brand


You might remember when my knitting obsession started last November: well, it’s still going strong! I’m in the process of making my very first sweater right now, but I’m constantly after new patterns and wool to try and have fun with. If you follow my Instagram profile you’ll know all about this topic and my preferences by now, but I’m 100% obsessed with the softest warmest wool by Drops, which is one of the wools I’ve picked for my sweater project (more on that soon!). But I’ve also just discovered French De Rerum Natura, that produces and sells beautiful ecological wool made in France – I can’t wait to cast on some new projects this February!

Lastly, this month I’ve read Fiona Humberstone’s How To Style Your Brand book and found it extremely inspiring. This book is full of tips and hints to make your own brand great, and although I’m already familiar with branding and design with running a design business myself, it felt so nice and refreshing to read about a different process than my own, which helped me a lot with realizing new things about my business I have never thought about before! If you want to hear more of my thoughts, you can find a mini review here.


That’s all really! Let me know what’s on your January favourites list as well! x

    Your photography!! Breath-taking! I’m a big fan of herbal tea and haven’t yet tried the Pukka range so I’ll have to do some shopping today and grab some. It sounds weird but I really want to hug that wool because it looked so soft! Hahaha!

    Wow that Neals Yard face wash sounds great, I love that brand. Also, such beautiful photos I love your blog! <3

  • I love Pukka teas, the mint and liquorice one is a favourite (even if you don’t like liquorice, it’s still worth trying as it doesn’t taste like liquorice as we know it!) That’s great about the Omega 3 capsules, I could really do with some of those especially as they’re vegan 🙂 xxx

  • The month definitely passed by real quick! I think it’s because I don’t feel like the year starts until I’m back at school, which is halfway through January 😛 // These photos make your January look so cosy! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
