Too many resolutions and you can’t decide which ones to actually go through with? Write all of them down, cut them up and draw three of them from a hat. Stick to those.
January with all its “New Year, New Me” vibes is the perfect time to make plans if you want to change something about your looks, have a closet purge and make appointments at the tattoo parlour or the hairdresser or barbershop.
January:the Monday of the year.
– Urban Dictionary
To battle the Monday blues of the year, deliberately bring out the bright colours and glitter and maybe turn up the volume on some (electro) Swing to celebrate the new 20s. It’s far too easy to get dragged into the drab part of Winter, but actively battling it with clothes that don’t only make you feel comfy, but also good is a good way to stay away from it.
“I don’t feel very much like Pooh today,” said Pooh.
“There there,” said Piglet. “I’ll bring you tea and honey until you do.”
The 18th marks the birthday of A. A. Milne, the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet and all the other lovely people from the Forest (and by that of one of my favourite books in the world). Celebrate all of them by reading the books, either by yourself or out to one another, recite hums and poems, eat some slices of bread with honey or condensed milk and maybe get a blue balloon, but avoid ending up in thorny shrubbery.
In the Northern Hemisphere, we had the height of the Quadrantids meteor shower during the 3rd and 4th of the month, but they last until the 12th. If you’re up for a cold winter night outing while the sky is clear make sure to dress warmly, grab more blankets than you think you might need and take a thermos full of hot tea.
Scavenge for thrown-out Christmas trees during this month, they are too good to go to waste! There are so many things you can make from them, and a small rustic coat rack, wall hooks and a querl are only a few ideas!
And not to forget our friends in the Southern Hemisphere here’s our last July post for more summery ideas!
