January Favorites: Lifestyle.
Here’s a peek at everything I loved in January 2021! xo
Peanut butter overnight oats. This is so on repeat for me this month. I love this and make three days worth at a time. It’s probably my favorite breakfast!
Terra Chips Heritage Blend. I am not a huge chip lover but oh my gossssh these are so good. Salty, crunchy and have so much flavor. We all love them!
My warm brussels crunch salad. I can’t stop making this. We’ve been eating it all of January and I am obsessed with it for lunch.
My passion planner!! It never fails that when January comes, I’m reminded how much I LOVE this planner. I use the academic year so don’t have a new one in January, but I’m always reinvigorated by my planner come the new year.
Stabilo Pastel Highlighters. I’ve mentioned these before too but they are my favorite highlighters to use in my planner! I also love how short and fat they are – they fit so well in your hands.
Breville Automatic Tea Maker. I.am.in.love.with.this. And it’s mind blowing! This is a splurge but I have used it every single day (multiple times a day) for over a month and a half. It’s made for loose leaf tea, but I also use it as an electric kettle a few times a day too. I wouldn’t say I’m a strict tea drinker yet but since I haven’t really been drinking coffee, this is the next best thing. Now tell me, what is your favorite loose leaf tea?!
Origins Ginger Hand Soap and Lotion. If you’ve been following along for awhile you may recognize this as one of my favorite nostalgic scents. It reminds me of the week Max was born, so I love having it somewhere in the house. This is the soap I threw in our bathroom after the holiday one finished and it smells so wonderful!
Merece Laminator. Definitely asked for a laminator for Christmas. All I wanted to do was laminate my kids’ art work! Max draws so much everyday and in order to preserve some of the keepers, this was needed!
Nordstrom Moonlight Layering Ts. I’ve mentioned these a million times but they are the BEST layering tees. They are so soft, stretchy and fitted. They are slightly sheer so you can’t really wear them alone, but I adore them under everything.
Barefoot Dreams In The Wild robe. My mom got me this for Christmas and I adore it. I don’t actually use it as a robe, but more of a cardigan that I keep on the first level of the house because it’s freezing right now. I wear it everyday!
Josh Groban’s Harmony album. My mom told me about this album and I love it. I adore Josh Groban and his is one of the last concerts we attended before 2020. This is so good! My kids are loving it too.
The Wife Upstairs. I read a ton in January (lots of good ones too!) but I think this was the one I couldn’t put down the most. If that makes sense. It’s a thrilled and while maybe a little predictable, really good and I just couldn’t wait to see what happened!
The Floor is Lava Game. The kids got this for Christmas and are equally in love with it. It’s really fun to play, especially if your kids are into the whole hot lava thing.
Color Me Fun Big Coloring Pages. Max is OBSESSED with these. He got one for his birthday and then a few for Christmas. They keep him entertaining for a long time. Emilia likes them too, but not as much as he does. They are super fun, even for adults! We love coloring them with the kids.
Djeco Collage Art Kit. Now these are Emilia’s favorites. She got one for Christmas and I’ve since bought every other one that is made because she loves them so much. Everyday she asks if she can her collages right when she wakes up and it’s so cute. She loves any sort of art and takes her time doing it. These are so fun.
T is for Tame Hair Styler. This is the hair styling spray I’ve used on Max for the last three years. I’ve had so many questions about it when I show it on instagram. It smells like cake, doesn’t get crunchy or crispy in the hair and sprays nicely. I love it.

I have been super into making tea lately too! I still drink coffee daily (2 Nespresso pods and frothed/heated oat milk plus a scoop of vital proteins collagen powder). However, my office is freezing in the winter so I have been living off of hot tea during the day. For caffeinated, my favorite is the Harney and Sons chocolate mint loose leaf. For no caff, I love peppermint tea. Curious what your favorites are and hoping other readers post here too! I gifted my mom some loose leaf teas for Christmas and she is loving the Thai rooibos (Harney and Sons) which I want to try soon.
There are two books titled “The Wife Upstairs” the link is to one by Rachel Hawkins. There is another one by Freida McFadded. Can you confirm which one? both sound good!
yes, the one i linked is correct! it’s by rachel hawkins!!
In the past 6 months I’ve really gotten into tea-loose leaf especially. My favorite right now is from Adagio. The honeybush banana nut is amazing. https://www.adagio.com/rooibos/honeybush_banana_nut.html
You can also get some ‘sampler’ packs which contain like 4 different teas that make several cups. The mocktails sampler is super fun!!! I drank these during my dry January ;)
Have you seen Cleverfox planners? They are also fun, practical and many options to pick from.
i love harney and sons tea. i like hot cinnamon spice but you really gotta like cinnnamon. i love their peppermint (no caf). i also like their hot apple spice (sorta tasted like apple cider?), their white christmas, holiday, and paris. all good. i have the same brevile and never use it to brew tea in because i am soooo lazy and dont want to clean it :)
I LOVE Origins ginger body soufflé and stock up when it’s on sale! Aren’t barefoot dreams robes the best? I have a black one that doesn’t really look robe-ish for those days when comfort is key ☺️
I love that mug ! Where is it from ?
mug is from paper source, but a few years ago! https://www.papersource.com/gifts/coral-dot-mug-10009131.html
