January- What I wore, ate, read, watched and used

January always seems to feel like the longest month. For me it has whizzed by. I can't believe December was a month ago! I set myself a challenge to blog every day (and I did it - yay) so I think that helped. Keeping busy really makes time go fast. I actually thought we had another week of January left!
 I've been taking care of myself a lot more - don't we all vow to in January?! But it's made me feel great. I'm loving 2015 so far. I have a really good feeling about this year.

Here's a little look into how January was for me...

What I wore- Sam and I went out for dinner 'just because'. We always try to make sure we get some proper couple time which I think is really important. I love an excuse to dress up and wear a dress that hasn't been out of the wardrobe for a while. This one is from ASOS and I love the pink and black panelling. It's obviously teamed with my new heels that Sam bought me for Christmas but you can't really see them in this pic - sorry!


What I ate- I'm tooting my own horn here but I have learnt to make the most amazing chicken stir fry and it's so good for you! I use Zero Noodles which are low calorie and actually taste really nice. It's packed full of veg, so easy to throw together and it's been on the menu several times this month.


What I read- I've been loving 'Be Body Beautiful' by Lucy Meckleburgh. It's so great to see a health book that isn't about losing weight! It always drives me mad in January when I see fad diets and celeb DVDs where they claim to make you lose so much weight doing their work outs where they've clearly had a personal trainer over the last year. I wasn't even much of a fan of Lucy Mecklenburgh to be honest but I  love the positivity in the book and how it's about being healthy and happy rather than just 'thinner'. There's recipes, work out tips and a look into her life too. Even if you don't like TOWIE I think this book is actually a really great read. 


What I watched- I've seen it a couple of times already but I bought Sam the Wolf of Wall Street on  Blu Ray for Christmas. Sam's in sales so it is a great film for him to relate to -but obviously exaggerated!  We usually download our films or just watch them on Netflix but the special features made me get this one. Everything about it gets us talking for hours. Both of us find Jordan Belfort really inspiring and the film has really motivated Sam in his work in particular. If you ignore the drugs, adultery etc there's so much from this film to really help make you more positive and go for what you want. Leonardo Di Caprio should have got an Oscar for it, he's just amazing.

What I used- I used up my YSL Touche Éclat just before Christmas and Sam treated me to a new one. Going without it for a few weeks felt a bit strange to be honest and I really notice the difference now when I wear it. Especially as I'm sleeping really badly, it's making me look a little more awake. Some think this product isn't worth the hype but when you learn how to use it properly it's a life saver. I once had someone ask me which to buy herself -this or Benefit's Erase paste -they are completely different products! It's such a versatile product too and well worth the money in my opinion. This is a limited edition packaging too which is pretty fun.


I'm really excited about February, we've got a packed diary already and I'm looking forward to catching up with a few people. It's nice that I can take the heat off blogging a bit now I'm not blogging every day. I loved doing it, but it was hard work juggling it with everything else!
