The end of January 2019 is finally upon us! January is probably my least favourite month of the year. It’s the furthest from Christmas, it goes on for so long and it just always seems miserable. That being said, there were some fun moments, new goals and trips this month.
The first of January was spent having afternoon tea in the Bath Pump Rooms which honestly feels like it was 6 months ago! It was really lovely and I definitely recommend you go if you get the chance.
Back to the Gym
I went back to the gym and started eating healthy again. I’ve been following a lot of Joe Wicks recipes and doing his HIIT workouts on the days where I’m not at the gym and so far I’ve been really enjoying it and have seen a difference. I put on a LOT over Christmas and was struggling to fit into my clothes but after a few weeks of exercising and eating semi-clean (I do slip up and have a cheat day every now and then, I’m only human!) my clothes are fitting much better and my stomach isn’t looking as round anymore. So I’m hoping to keep this up and see more progress.
Finished the First Book of the Year
I finished my first book of the year in January which was Eleanor Oliphant is Completly Fine. I really liked this book, it was confusing, intense and I always looked forward to getting into bed at the end of the day to read it.
Many bad things happened in January with both my work and personal life which I’m not going to get in to, but it resulted in some retail therapy where I got some stunning new makeup products, all of which I love!
Trip to London
I had a great time in London with my fiance. We went to the Natural History Museum which I hadn’t been too in years. Walked around Chelsea finding some beautiful, Instagrammable spots. Jaz also took me out for a meal in a little, hidden away Italian restaurant which was amazing.
Jack the Ripper
For Christmas, my mother bought Jaz and I a Jack the Ripper and haunted London tour experience which we also did and it was really interesting! We walked the routes they believe Jack the Ripper took, saw where the murders took place, listened to suspect stories and conspiracy theories. We also visited the locations where Braveheart was hanged, drawn and quartered and saw the only statue of Henry the 8th. It was fascinating, creepy and we really learned a lot. It’s so interesting actually seeing the places where everything happened.
Jaz and I also did a bit more wedding planning this month. We bought our Save The Dates which we’ll be sending out very soon! Contacted a photographer and we’re currently in talks with a florist who does the most amazing, autumnal flowers. There’s still so much to do and we clash on absolutely everything but we’re making good progress and having so much fun planning!
So that was my January 2019 in a nutshell! I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what February has in store. I hope you all enjoyed this post.
