January Favourites!

Like I explained in my Life In January blog post, January has been a pretty nothing month. I've spent most of the month broke af, reading, binge watching stuff on Netflix, and playing The Sims 4. Which, you know, ain't that exciting. But it's quite nice to  just chill out after Christmas, ya know? And today I've got a few of my favourite things from January to share with you. Let's go! 


Doing


Yep, playing The Sims 4 is the favourite thing I've been doing this month(told you it was a pretty boring January!) Earlier this month, they released toddlers as a free update, and I've fallen back in love with TS4! 


Watching

When I started watching Stranger Things, I didn't really like it. But when the credits rolled on the final episode of Season One I realised, I LOVED IT!! I cannot wait for Season Two to start, and Stranger Things was absolutely my favourite TV show in January!

Reading

I read some great books in January, but The Passenger, by Lisa Lutz, stands out as my favourite. The Passenger tells the story of a woman who doesn't exist; who is on the run and shedding identities as she goes. Posing the questions of who are you, and what is forgivable and what is not, this is an absolute must-read for fans of dark and creepy reads! 

Listening To

This song has been on repeat in my car since it was released, earlier this month. I also really like Ed Sheeran's other single, Castle on a Hill, but Shape of You is by far my favourite tune this month! 

Buying


Can you believe I grabbed this Asda Catstronauts King Duvet set for just £3.50?! What a bargain. My favourite sales purchase this month (and if you ain't buying stuff in the sale in January, then you're doing something wrong!) and my favourite duvet set EVA!

Eating


Why are Easter Eggs in stores already? It ain't even Easter for, like, four months! What's that all about?! Golden Eggs are my absolute favourite Easter chocolates, and I've been consuming more than is good for me recently! 

What are you looking forward to in February?

    1. Ahh it's so good! I go through stages where I'm obsessed, and then I completely forget about it for weeks, or even months! Haha.

  3. My brother recently gifted me the Sims 4 and I know it's been out for ages, I was so slow to the party!! I have the base game, came in this deluxe thing so I don't have all the expansions and stuff packs but I'm slowly getting used to it hahaha And Ed Sheeran! HE'S BACK!!! The legend is back! I love the two songs he released! I'd probably say Castle On The Hill is my favourite, purely because that's the one I listened to fully first! Em xx

    1. If you are going to get expansion packs I'd HIGHLY recommend City Living and Get To Work - they are the best ones! I'm so HAPPY Ed Sheeran is back - he's a total legend. And Castle On The Hill is my favourite, too! xx

  5. I loved Stranger Things, looking forward to the next season! Also quite tempted by those Golden Eggs (even at 7 in the morning they look appealing!) will have to pick some up when I see them to give them a try :)
