January. One month already in the books for the new year. I really do wish time would slow down! It’s been a month of ups and downs already, but I still have so much faith that two-thousand and seventeen will be a great one. One of my goals for this year is to get a little more personal with you on the blog, so I thought taking time each month to share some favorites of mine would be a good start. I’m going to really play around with these, share some of the things I take screenshots of that I love, maybe start taking my camera around with me and sharing some candid shots that I take here and there, favorite products or blog posts I find. A little of this, a little of that. So we’ll see how it goes.
Here are my favorites for the month of January. This post contains some affiliate links for your shopping convenience.
Favorite Instagram + Blog.
I have followed Annie from Most Lovely Things for so long, even before I started my own blog. I don’t remember exactly how I found her, but I was so drawn in by the beauty of everyday life she captures in her photos. It could be as simple as a lovely building, or table setting like the one above. Her porch is my absolute favorite.
I cannot stop listening to Love on the Weekend by John Mayer. It makes me want to turn it on, pour a glass of wine, and cook dinner on a Friday night spent at home. Now that is my ideal start to the weekend. Ending with Dateline in bed, of course.
Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. This book is a game changer when it comes to getting your mind right to live a life of creativity. Must read.
Favorite on Netflix.
A documentary called Minimalism.
My newest obsession are these handcrafted soy candles by Ful Candles. So far my favorite scents are Pumpkin + Clove and Sugar + Spice. They come in cute little jars (and we all know how much a love little jars ;)), and they smell up your entire house with pure goodness.
I am in love with this bag from Madewell. I’m definitely going to need it at some point…
I know that all of you are watching This is Us, right? I was completely heartbroken when Parenthood ended, but this show has taken its place. It is so so good!
The other day I got the itch to bake something but didn’t feel like going to the grocery store (story of my life). Like any other person I jumped on Pinterest to try and fine something to make with the ingredients I already had, and I found a DELICIOUS recipe for this Quick and Easy Coffee Cake. Made it, and loved it!
