January has been the fresh start we all needed after the calamity that was 2017. Even though this month has had it’s up’s and downs it has certainly had WAY more up’s than downs! For example, Sean hosted a very successful charity towards the American Suicide Prevention Foundation and raised almost 227’000$ for people in need. I finally opened up my own merch store called wiishushop, which has me very excited for the future!
And now here we are. Let’s continue this positive mental attitude (PMA!!) all the way into February as well as the rest of the year! As so, I want to share some of my favorite things from the month of January, enjoy!
Apple tea has been my absolute lifesaver during the month of January. I’m a big lover of tea and I’ve always loved apple tea but up until recently I had only drunken (drank?) green tea. Thus I had forgotten how good fruit tea tastes! Now I have finally expanded my tea palette (which I really should do more often) and I have made room for more apple tea in my life, which is a decision I’m sure I won’t regret any time soon!
Zelda, Breath of The Wild:
I have been obsessed with Zelda BoTW lately and it’s gotten to the point of me sitting up until it’s 3 am just so I can play for the utmost amount of time I possibly can. I absolutely loved the game when it first came out but I didn’t finish it, so now I have picked it up again and I am determined to finish it this time around! Plus playing this game again gave me such a feeling of nostalgia for some reason. I have never gotten as invested in a Zelda game as much as I have this one. I had forgotten how charming it was! Another benefit of playing is that I get to play alongside Sean on the couch, which is just super cosy! Are any of you guys still playing? Maybe some of you have bought the DLC? Please tell me about your experience with it and how far you are and if you aren’t playing now, maybe also if you plan on picking it up again any time soon? I would love to hear about it!
P.S. my horses are named Butters, Burpers and Big Boy if you where curious.
I had the privilege of taking some much needed walks near the ocean this month that I really enjoyed as well as snapping a tonne of pictures while there! Taking the time to just be outside in the fresh air is so so important and I think a lot of people forget that. I, myself especially, need to remind myself to get outside more often because it’s so easy to just lock myself away in front of my computer writing blog posts, recording YouTube videos or working on whatever project I’ve thought of for that particular week. That’s why I need to get off my ass and get into gear! The ocean is right there and it’s so beautiful, I might as well take advantage of my location!
Because I’ve been restricted to a new diet, cooking for myself has been my number 1 priority and it’s been so fun! Cooking has always been a passion of mine and something I enjoy doing but cooking exclusively for myself was still always kind of a chore. That’s why I’m happy I’ve gotten to do it a lot more this month, for both me and Sean and I’ve been super grateful for his help with everything. I can’t wait to look up more keto friendly recipes to try out for February! I definitely still have trouble with good snacks, maybe some of you have some handy tips and tricks? Let me know!
However January isn’t over yet, so I hope the rest of the month treats you all as well as it has treated me. I will definitely keep on working hard to keep the good vibes flowing and also continue to try to keep myself in a healthy and happy environment!
Thanks for reading!
