Hello everyone and Happy February! I don’t know about you but it fees like New Years was a while ago, when it’s only been just over a month. Today I am sharing some of my favourite things from the month of January, from entertainment, to beauty, clothing and some recipes! It’s hard to believe that as of next month’s favourites video I have been doing these for TWO YEARS! That seems crazy to me. Thank you for following along! Okay, I’ll quit blabbing, let’s get started!

9-1-1- This is one of the first new shows I’ve watched in a while! I’ll probably mention the other one next month. It has Final Destination vibes, but I lover Peter Krause and Connie Britton, so I’m enjoying this show! It’s actually already been renewed for a second season!
Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty– I read my one book for the month! If you missed my goals for 2018, I’m trying to read 13 books this year (which might not be a lot but with wedding planning I wanted to set a somewhat easy goal). It was set up a little differently than Big Little Lies, but I still enjoyed it! I checked and it looks like Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon have bought the right to make this a movie or tv show. I look forward to it!
Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog– I forgot how much I loved this short. I watched it for the first time in high school (in class actually) and became obsessed. Ethan even bought me a Dr Horrible shirt for my birthday one year! If you’ve never seen it, watch it! Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day in a Joss Whedon creation. Doesn’t get better than that. Oh wait, there’s singing. Yes it does!
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle- I went to see this a few weeks ago and really liked it! I wasn’t sure how it would hold up to the original, and I found it different but really good! Plus Nick Jonas is in it. But the jokes were funny and I was definitely laughing out loud. I would recommend it!
Cherry Scrub– I’ve talked before about how I have bumps on my arms, and I use an exfoliating scrub in the shower to help get rid of them or keep them under control. I ran out of the last one that I was using, so I’m now using the body scrub from The Body Shop! I have a massive stockpile and this scent has been discontinued, but I love this product! It does an even better job than the last one I used. I’ve linked the Grapefruit one that is currently available!
Clarisonic Mia 2– I bought myself this during the Sephora Fall Sale, and I’ve been loving using it! Because my skin is pretty sensitive I use it every other day, but it’s so nice at the end of the day! It’s like a face massage!
Aussie Mega Hairspray– I’ve been curling my hair a lot lately instead of straightening it, so I’ve been going through more hairspray! I love this one from Aussie, and it still gives me the flexible hold I want! Plus it smells amazing!
Old Navy Performance Pullover– I’m happy to say I’m finally getting back into my morning workout routine! Since I workout in the basement I’ve been putting this long sleeve shirt on, and it’s comfy without being too warm, and I can still move around without being limited. I also have the matching leggings that I’m pretty sure I mentioned in my first ever monthly favourites! So I’m still loving those as well!
Food & Drink
Slimming Soup– this recipe is actually from the Tone It Up 5 Day Detox that I did at the beginning of January. I could actually see making this again because it was good! And very filling! I’ve linked the sign up page, you just have to enter your email to get the recipes!
West African Peanut Soup– This is definitely one of Ethan’s favourite dinners, and it’s becoming one of mine as well! We use the recipe that’s in the Cookie + Kate cookbook, but the recipe on her blog is very similar. It’s delicious!
