Dear January…

I poured a lot of creativity into the pages of my sketchbooks and notebooks. I avoided any physical exercise. I know I said I would do yoga but I’m not into it. Just not feeling motivated. As we move into February the sun helps brighten my spirit.

I’ve been writing poetry. I’ve been sharing my poems on IG. @bestdayblogger because I don’t have my computer to upload and edit my vlogs as much I’m spending time on Instagram Reels and IGTV. This year is my first time using those features. It’s fun.

I created a video for my Art Book Flip Trough.

I created a video of my tea collection. I’ve been into a lot of tea drinking lately.

Reading art and writing is how I’ve been spending my creative time. The rest of the time I’m doing laundry, washing dishes and cooking. It gets dark at 5:30 and I hate it. I feel tired and want to sleep a lot but can’t.

Currently reading Alice Hoffman’s Magic Lessons.

I am really enjoying this book.

I completed A Poem For Every Winter Day. A very lovely collection of poetry.

Art in my Moleskine Artbook. I completed my first book. I didn’t use both sides of the pages.

The moon was so beautiful in January.

As for beauty I haven’t put any makeup on. I only use skincare products. Clarins, Pixi Beauty Skincare and Avon Skincare. I will be doing a full skincare winter routine post soon.

That is all for this month. Art, writing, tea drinking and reading. Taking care of the house chores and cooking. Feeding, bathing and taking care of my girls. Taking care of my self also.

I watched a Netflix movie in January. I LOVED IT. It is called Penguin Bloom with Naomi Watts. Based on a true story. It was amazing! You must watch it.

This month’s favourite snacks are chocolate and popcorn. ūüćŅ

I’m also loving my new fountain pen. It’s really beautiful. I received this as a Christmas gift from my wonderful husband. I also completed my Tea Pigs advent calendar and loved opening a tea everyday. It was amazing trying different flavours of teas. Tea Pigs is great!

So goodbye January 2021! I enjoyed each moment and cried many nights missing my father and thinking about him. I had a few sleepless nights. Puffy eyes and bags under my eyes. It is hard. Flashbacks from the final hours with my father come to me all the time and I just start crying. I know the good memories will float above the sad ones one day. Until then I light my candle everyday and pray.

I hope you are all well my friends. Take good care of your selves and your family during these hard times. Spend your time doing things you love and things that bring you joy.

Thank you all and have a beautiful weekend.

Much love and positivity.
