January Highlights

January Highlights

Happy Sunday everyone! We’re almost at the end of January and I don’t know about you. But this has felt like the longest month ever! So to say I’m pleased it’s almost over is an understatement! As I mentioned back in my New Year, New Me? post, I wanted to changed up my YouTube content a little. Rather than my usual January Favourites type of post, I thought I’d do a January Highlights post instead.

It’ll still include some of my favourite beauty bits from the past month. But I’m expanding it to also include some general highlights from the past month. So it could include events I’ve been to, gym classes I’ve tried, or restaurants I’ve visited. This is to give you a bit more of an insight into what I’ve enjoyed doing over January. And hopefully inspire you all to try some of these things as well.

So what have I been loving this month? Well I’ve been back on the Slimming World plan which I’ve actually really enjoyed and have managed to lose an impressive 10lbs. Well I think that’s impressive! It’s certainly given me the much needed boost I needed. I’ve also started boxing again, heading to the gym twice a week and have even done a Pilates class or two. I’m just hoping I’m as motivated to continue this into February and throughout the year!

So what else has been happening this month? Well I’ve got to work on some amazing campaigns and had some great brand partnership opportunities come through. As well as getting to attend the launch of the new Stila collection – which is beautiful by the way! This month I went and saw La La Land. I’m not sure if I’ve missed something but I wasn’t a huge fan of the film. I mean I liked it. It was a fun, feel good film. But I didn’t LOVE it. And I feel like so many people did LOVE it that I’m worried I’ve missed something!

Well if you want to see some more of my January Highlights, then you can watch the video below. And don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel here.

There’s so much exciting stuff already in the diary for next month. What do you have planned for February and what were your January Highlights?

    This month was the longest ever but at the same time, it is unbelievable it is already the end of the first month of 2017. Time flies really quickly. Everyone is talking about La La Land at the moment and I cannot wait to watch it too! x

    Congrats on the 10lb! I’ve been meaning to start a diet or something myself… Also, I one of the few people who actually likes January. Probably helps that my birthday is in January, haha.

    Everyone seems to be hyping Lalaland up well everyone who is on the TV anyway. People who have actually seen it that I have spoke with have said it was OK but they didn’t get the whole omg it’s amazing vibe. I’m yet to watch it. Congratulations on losing 10lbs I’ve just started slimming world and I’m stuck on what the hell I can eat x

    I feel like the month has flown past but I’ve also fitted lots in so maybe not! My highlights have been enjoying more creative pastimes like scrapbooking and jewellery making; learning to drive, losing weight and starting more of my goals. Well done on your weight loss. Love how you’re sharing more than your favourite beauty items in the month! X

    Hi Steph, love your hair highlights. Congrats on losing 10lb, you go girl. La La Land is so overrated it’s untrue. I’m starting get fit in Feb as have fallen off the sensible eating wagon since we went on our hols at the begining of Feb, so time to junk the junk. Keep up the good work.

    I’ve also focused on healthy eating this month, well done on your amazing loss! Keep up the great work! 🙂

    You’re the first person I’ve seen say that you werent too much of a fan of Lala Land! I haven’t seen it because its not my kind of thing at all xxx

    Well done on your weight loss. I so need to lose weight this year. I need to get motivated.

    Boxing sounds fun, I’d love to try out a class 😀 I went to see La La Land yesterday and I was left feeling really confused. From a drama student point of view, it was amazing as they managed to include nearly every single theatre convention which you don’t normally see in films at all so that was refreshing but yeah, there were bits that I was like What?! I can’t decide whether or I like it love it for that reason!

  10. January 30, 2017 / 7:53 pm

    That’s great news on the weight loss and the boxing should help. Love the boots they look lovely 😉

    I haven’t seen La La Land yet but you’re one of the first to be a bit meh about it! I’ll still give it a watch as it’s won so many awards.

    I do love a bit of leapord print, but not to much those boots are adorable and a good key piece for A/W wardrobe.
    January for me has been on the back burner all things I’m wanting to do I have to wait

    I still need to watch La La Land. I have no idea if I’d like it. I had started Whiplash and I didn’t finish it so… Also I’m not a big fan of musicals, but I’m a big fan of those two actors.
