The most depressing month of the year just passed and even if the weather was not on my favorites list, there are a couple of items that were, therefore I am more than happy to share them with you.
The first on my list would be a new Netflix show that I’m kind of obsessed with, named You. Based on the book of Caroline Kepnes, it features Penn Badgley as the stalker, Joe. In the digital era, I think the show’s main subject is something that many of us encountered. Let’s be honest who hasn’t done a bit of stalking on social media? But in this case we can all see the danger of posting all of your life’s updates online and what can someone do with that information. Apart from the very smart topic, I love the psychological side of the series, definitely a show to watch if you don’t do it already. The book is also on my to-read list, so expect a book review soon.
January being a month where the moral is a bit low, I invested in 3 books to better my mood, I am talking about Meik Wiking‘s books Hygge (review can be found here) and Lykke, to those I added also Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life. What better way to spend the first month of the year than with a cup of hot chocolate and a great book. I make it my goal to read at least 2 books per month.
In the shopping department, I have to praise my new pair of ankle boots from Vero Moda that I had my eyes on since December. The burgundy red color and the soft velvet made me fall for them in seconds, I didn’t have the chance to wear them yet, but I am planning to do it in the next days. Since it was hard to order only the boots, I added also a shopper black bag from Ted Baker. Love the classic style and the fact that I can wear it with about anything and in any season, also it’s size is perfect, not too big to be uncomfortable to wear, but spacious enough to allow me to carry half of my house it in.
Last but not least, a new pair of long boots that weren’t really on the list, but since these were on sale and at a great price, I said one can never have enough shoes, so I swiped the card for the dusty pink leather boots. At first, I was a bit worried that it might be hard to wear them, now I see that it’s actually pretty easy to find an outfit to accommodate them.
Getting through January was a bit of a challenge after the excesses from December. I am happy that it is over and that spring is one month closer. I hope the rest of the year will bring just as many favorites as the first month.
