My January Favourites


I have been up and down on these monthly wrap up sorts of post and I have come to the decision to end each month by summarising all my favourites of that month.

So without further ado (and because I am terrible at writing these intros), I give you my January Favourites!

Books

~ Soul Surfer: A True Story of Faith, Family, and Fighting to Get Back on the Board by Bethany Hamilton
For the first book, I read this year it kicked off my reading really well. I read it in almost a day and it was truly inspiring. I didn't realise that Bethany was only 14 when she had the accident.
I wrote a review on Goodreads here.

~ Always Watching by Lynette Eason
I wrote an in-depth review here on this blog.

Music

JJ Heller ~ I discovered Meant to Be by JJ( Jennifer Judy Heller) in December I think and then looked at her other stuff and fell in love with her style.
My faves are Daylight, The Well, Scarlet Thread, Father-Daughter Dance, This Year, Boat Song to name a few.

Take My Life And Let it Be was also a song that I got to love. My favourite version is by Jadon Lavik and it simply makes me smile, I don't know why.
Also, Farther Along was a fave this month.

Movies

~ That Darn Cat
This was such a hilarious movie and a great one we could watch as a family. My younger siblings really loved it and it was cute to hear their giggles erupt every few minutes.
I highly recommend this oldie!

I rewatched The Magic of Ordinary Days and The Man from U.N.C.L.E too. (And they are two of my favourite movies)


Events
This is the marquis where all the meals are served during Family Conference.
ATI Family Conference 2018 and Student Conference ~ This is an event my family attends nearly every year and I was lucky to be able to stay for the youth/student conference too.
This year we had some extra special visitors.......Mr & Mrs Duggar and all of their unmarried children(except one).
It was so cool to see them, meet some of them and hear what they had to say.
I got a photo with Mrs Duggar and they gave away copies of The Duggar girls' book, Growing Up Duggar. Signed too!
Beside meeting them, I also just had an amazing time seeing friends and being encouraged.


Two of my younger siblings also had birthdays. My brother turned 6 and my sister turned 2.
We celebrated with a combined birthday party for both of them.


Food & Drinks


Smoothie Bowls ~ I love having one of these for breakfast now. It's basically a smoothie poured into a bowl and you put toppings on top. Nuts, seeds, fruit, granola or all of them!

Teeccino ~ I mentioned this in one of my latest posts. There is a plain French Roast version that is like a regular coffee but we just got a whole lot of other flavours. The ones I have tried so far (Mint, Hazelnut and Maya Chai♥) are delicious. I think it's a great coffee replacement.
This is the website for more info.
In love with this flavour!

Sago Pudding ~ It's hard to explain this but if you are interested I can share my recipe!


MISC


Resene paint test pots ~ I love getting the small pots of paint to use for different projects. I repainted some picture frames and some other objects in my room to fit with my blush pink and grey theme
I 'm going for.

Burt's Bees Lipstick ~ Mine is a sort of brown-pink lip colour that we got from Vanilla Bloom online. It's my first makeup item and a great starter shade for new lipstick wearers.

Pink Paint Dipped mug ~ I love it a lot I have been drinking all of my hot drinks out of it. I don't know where it was from so I couldn't find a picture.


And thus ends this post for my January faves.
What were your favourite things you discovered in Jan?

  1. This was a fun post, Hannah! (I love Burt's Bees lip colors. My favorite is sort of a coral color, and it really complements my skin tone. I much prefer it to regular lipstick for its lightness.)
