What was I up to in January

Unlike the usual belief of January being gloomy and depressing mine has been anything but. January, for me, has been busy with planning the year ahead, reflecting on the previous year and sobering from the holiday festivities. I wrote several posts about my goals, how to make goals that stick and how to make your own diary for the year 2017. Following my own tips, I have created a several step plan for this year how to achieve my goals. Starting with getting a membership card to a yoga studio, which I have been loving!

Although full of work and thinking, I have not been as busy as in December so I’ve had the time to enjoy my Christmas presents, some culture this month and reflect on my favourite books from 2016 while planning on my extensive book list for this year.

Sustainability has been firmly on my mind and I have shared with you the Bee’s Wrap sheets as well as the sustainable form of vegetable marking. Now I am off to research more sustainable topics and plan new content for the blog. It will be exciting!!

Happy Favourites of the Week – Full of Culture

Sharmanka Kinetik theatre – My friend took me to Kinetik theatre, here in Glasgow, for my birthday. I didn’t really know what to expect and so I waited for it to start, in excitement. I would call this closer to art rather than theatre, although, I understand where the reference to theatre comes from. Moving objects with funny, sad and informational stories to back them up. Something different that I will definitely remember.

Fossil Fuel Divestment – A very interesting read into the topic of sustainability. I had never heard of divestment before and felt a sparkle of hope for the human kind after reading this!

Alphonse Mucha in Quest of Beauty – I like visiting museums and checking out different exhibitions and this was no different, except that I liked it much more than I was expecting. There is something in this poster making lithography art that made me quiver with happiness. So I bought the exhibition book to scroll through whenever I am in the need for happiness from those pictures.

How to solve your bra problems – These tips are excellent for before you are buying a new bra or just to understand how it is supposed to sit.

La La Land – I like musicals and I enjoyed this as well. It left me feeling happy and singing the main song from the musical, which I adored! To top that, we went to see this movie in the Grosvenor cinema theatre, where I hadn’t been before, and I enjoyed it more than the regular Cineworld experience!

Yoga card – On the quest to achieve my goals for 2017 I finally bought a monthly card to go to my favourite yoga studio and loved the first few classes that I have done. Here’s to a yogafull year!

Surprise parcel – I received a surprise parcel with a present from my best friend. We see each other so rarely and this parcel just made my whole week. She sent me my favourite sweets (I had such a craving for such sweets just at the time I must have telepathically communicated this to her) which I devoured instantly and some beautiful jewellery!

 

What were your happy moments this past week?
