January: The Trial Month

February 2, 2017

I think we can all agree that January was a bit of a blah month. I’ve officially written it off as a trial month and 2017 now starts in February. I was planning to start doing a monthly round-up post but January was pretty boring so I don’t have a lot to report on. I’m usually here, there and everywhere and aside from a shopping trip to York at the beginning of the month, I’ve stayed put.

Reflecting on my Resolutions & Goals for 2017, I’ve actually managed to get my office space nearly finished. You can see a sneak peak here and I’ll be unveiling more in a couple of weeks. I’ve not re-joined the gym yet but I’ve actually made a conscious effort to think about what I’m eating. My new addiction is sweet potato fries. Also, I’ve not uploaded anything to my YouTube channel this month which was a huge fail. Last week, I bought some posh professional light so you can expect videos real soon! I also have a huge backlog of vlog footage to edit through!

Looking forward to February, I can already tell it’s going to be waaay more exciting. On Sunday, I’m heading to Copenhagen for a couple of days. If you have any recommendations, let me know! I’m also going to see King’s Of Leon in a couple of weeks which should be fun. As I said before, YouTube videos should be happening too!

How was your January? Did you do anything fun?

    I hate to say it but I was happy to see January go, and I am more than happy to look at it as a trial month. It sounds like you have some very exciting things happening in February, especially the trip to Copenhagen!

  5. January was great for me, birthday month, started a new job etc. I hope you have a nice time in Copenhagen and looking forward to seeing some videos over on the Tube (my favourite place) x

  6. January is always good for me because it’s my birthday plus I’ve had some awesome days out/ catch ups with friends etc so it was good for me x

  7. I did OK in January but ready to ramp it up in February! x

    January is always quite good for me, but that’s because it’s my birthday at the end of the month so there’s always something to look forward to. I’m really excited for February though because it means spring is just around the corner! I love your coat in this post. xx

  11. Well done on getting your office space finished. I need to organise one for me. I the whole outfit you’re wearing I have a dress like that but a bit longer. I must go find it and wear it sometime soon.
