10 Things I Loved in January

Monday, February 4, 2019

1. My top spot for January has to be these face masks. I have had hormonal acne issues on and off since first getting pregnant with Beau.. but it started to get REALLY bad in November/December/January.. I used one of these masks on someone's recommendation (can't remember!!) and it zapped almost all of my acne in one night. It's a great, enjoyable mask but more than that it allowed me to realize that the reason my skin had gotten so bad was because of how dry it had gotten with the winter weather. I should have noticed sooner but I didn't and so this helped me make the mental leap, haha! I've finally almost got it under control and just need the remaining pink spots to fade. I just ordered this (just came back in stock finally please never sell out again if you work!!!) because I've read that it does wonders for those lingering spots.

2. If you're from Charleston/Bluffton, I need your help! I'm headed there on a girls trip in June with my friend and her daughter and my Soph.. we're SO excited. We'll be staying in Charleston but are going to Bluffton for the day for something fun so we might need a good place to eat or something! :)

3. I bought Chrissy Teigen's second cookbook on a random walkthrough of Target and really enjoyed looking through it.. and the banana bread recipe is AMAZING! Highly, highly recommend. I made one for home group last Sunday night and was surprised by how much of it was gone when we left.

4. We had a training at church on family discipleship for home groups (SO excited to share more about this!) and one of the other leaders said that they were having a hard time getting all the kids in their group (7 under 4) to stay engaged to a whole story out of Jesus Storybook Bible (SUCH an amazing resource!) and the children's pastor recommended a different bible for younger ages. He said JSB is an awesome resource for sleepy bedtimes and older kids and honestly even for adults.. but recommended this for toddlers and this for 3,4+. I ordered the toddler one right away and it's awesome because the story is just a few sentences and there's always a main idea and a question.

5. While everyone has been Whole 30-ing, I've been enjoying a new chocolate treat in the evenings. :) My bestie recommended the caramel m&ms and they're SO good. I have a new package in the pantry but am going to try and not open it for a bit. They are just TOO yummy!

6. Speaking of the evenings, Ben and I just got current on Poldark (Amazon Prime Video + 4th season on the PBS app) and we LOVED it. We got SOO frustrated with the main characters at points but it's always so much fun when we can really enjoy a show together. Each evening we would look forward to our next episode so much. We just started Victoria so hopefully we'll get into it as much.

7. Shopping for a baby girl for Spring has been SO fun. It's a cute, cute world of clothes out there, haha!! Sophie is stocked until her first trip to the pumpkin patch! One boutique that I highly recommend is The Frilly Frog. Amazing customer service. :)

8. This month one of my fave, fave people to follow released photo editing presets. I literally bought them that very second, haha! Her editing style is amazing. I've really loved getting more into photography over the past year and these presets have been wonderful. I also really like that the tweaking I need to do is helping me learn more and more about editing in general.

9. I'm getting to where I like specific sizes of bows for Sophie and don't really feel like I can do any bow subscriptions anymore.. they are usually all different sizes and patterns so I end up not putting her in them near as much as I do ones I've specifically chosen. I just ordered a few bows from this etsy shop and was really impressed with the quality.

10. This is usually something I wouldn't say but I am glad to put January behind us! So #10 is the end of the month... haha!! Beau has been SUCH a trooper with his big cast as of late but this mama is desperate to give her baby a nice warm bath as opposed to washing his hair in the sink and body with a rag to avoid getting the cast wet..

What are some of your faves from last month?! :) Ps. My comments are for some reason not coming in as emails as they used to.. so I'll be replying in the comments section so make sure to check "notify me" so you can see my reply! :)
