January Monthly Recap

Sharing a January monthly recap – my favorite purchases, travels, shows I binged, and more!

I saw approximately 6,239 posts that said January felt like 74 days, and they were all correct. January just felt long. I don’t usually realize that, but this year I really did. I accomplished a lot more than I thought I’d accomplish – does anyone else feel like that?

When I drafted my 2019 goals in my PowerSheets Planner, I hadn’t planned on meeting many of them right away, but I was able to make so. much. progress! Today I’m just recapping the month overall, but I’ll go a bit into my goals so you can see what I mean.

My January Purchases:

  • My favorite monthly purchase was these blue light blocking glasses a fellow Instagrammer recommended. I sit and stare at my computer screen all day for work, so these are a necessity! If you haven’t invested in a pair, these are under $17, eligible for Amazon Prime, and come in seven colors. Mine are pink!
  • As you may have seen, I ordered a Peloton last month! I am SO excited and I’ve officially done ten rides (small milestones). If you’re interested in ordering one, I’m happy to answer any questions. You can also use my referral code THFUJ6 for $100 off!
  • These Olly Restful Sleep Gummy Supplements are GOLD. I struggle with sleeping through the night or just falling asleep in general, and they’ve changed my life! I was gifted some at a conference last fall and I just bought another package.
  • On a Sephora run, I grabbed Tan Luxe Tan Drops and my self tanner game has completely changed. You add drops and mix with your daily moisturizer (I’ve done either in the morning or before bed) and your face will gradually darken! They work great and aren’t streaky. The little bottle goes a long way, too!

3 Items in My Shopping Cart:

Nope. No items. It’s FRUGAL FEBRUARY! I failed a little and purchased this little ottoman on sale at Target, though (not on sale online, but 50% off in-store). It was too good of a deal to pass up. Would you like me to write a post about Frugal February and my goals? I’m thinking about it!

Where I Traveled/Ate:

We headed to Utah at the beginning of the month (recap here) for a few days of hiking! Before taking off, I grabbed Butterfish in Blackstone with one of my girl friends and it was delicious! A little on the pricey side, but a great spot for a dinner out.

After hiking, we headed to Las Vegas for our flight back. My aunt and I ate at Giada, and it was literally the best meal OF MY LIFE. If you’re in Vegas, you have to splurge and have this Italian food. Straight heavenly.

Netflix/Hulu Series I Watched:

Since my MoviePass subscription is over, I have been watching lots of Netflix. I finished Season 5 of Grace and Frankie and loved it – per usual.

I also watched You on Netflix. Downright weird. But overall, a good plot.
