Beating the January blues

Thursday, 30 January 2014

January can be a sad month. The Christmas flab is hanging around and forcing us to detox; we’re poor from too much fun in December so can’t go out and if that’s not bad enough its cold, wet and dark constantly. All there is to look forward to is an advent calendar style (without the chocolate) countdown to payday.

My January gym routine has been made a little brighter with my amazing new gym bag by Hey Holla that I got for Christmas. You can’t carry this around all day then not go to the gym or people will judge you so it’s a great motivator!

It’s available at for £16 and is made by the amazing duo, Alex and Laura. Check out their website for new designs and buy one – I want more but not sure how many gym bags I need. The “Big Fish Little Fish” bag is calling me though…

Another happy event for me this month is the return of Girls (Series 3) to our TV screens. I LOVE Girls, literally LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I can’t even imagine how it could get any better. It’s a BIG occasion at D’s house when we have an episode recorded. There’s an agreed contract that we’ll never watch it without each other then we tend to watch it at least a two times before we feel we’ve appreciated it enough.  If you haven’t seen it then I strongly suggest you buy series one and two on box set NOW. Lena Dunham, the creator, is amazing. She’s already won two Golden Globe awards and she’s only 27. Makes you feel inadequate that she's acheieved so much already!
Girls is hilarious, it follows a group of twenty-somethings living in New York. You’ll watch it and relate to something in every episode, then be ashamed that you ever related to such a strange, embarrassing or awkward situation. You’ll struggle to decide which character is your favourite. This week Adam is mine. His complete infatuation with Hannah is cute but usually borders on insanity. What better way to spend your dull January evenings, get it now! Just don’t watch it with your parents, AWK-WARD!
My major craving of the month is avocados. Believe it or not, and sadly it’s true, I hadn’t eaten an avocado EVER until a few months ago. Now I appear to be eating my 28 years allowance in the space of a few weeks, I seriously can't get enough. I feel like they deserve a whole post to themselves but I don't want to scare you off this early into my blogging days. For now we'll just think about avocado on toast, avocado in salads, even avocado brownies. I thought the brownies was a particularly weird combo but one cold, wet Saturday evening me and Jane thought "why not, let's give it a go" and they were amazing! We've decided that gluten free means healthy so make a batch and fill your boots! mmmmmmm........
That's all from me, stop by again soon.
