MONTHLY FAVOURITES | JANUARY 2019

January 2019 has been a long month, filled with bitterly cold mornings and penny-pinching survival methods. Despite an empty bank account meaning that frivolous sorties were kept to a minimum, I was able to enjoy many of lifes pleasures; just home based!

I read…

The inaugural read of The Boozy Book Club was To Kill a Mockingbird. Harper Lee’s masterpiece presents the Deep South as seen through the eyes of a child, who is coming of age and beginning to question the segregated community into which she has been born. It’s a period of history which I have studied

I listened to…

If there’s one way to while away a miserable month, it’s listening to power ballads. Céline Dion as its soundtrack. My top artist of 2018 according to Spotify and a top 3 contender for each year since I started listening to music, Céline is an undeniable icon. I’m picking Alone as her top song this January.

I watched…

The Haunting of Hill House kept me on the edge of my seat for a couple of days. I was sceptical about this but glad I gave it a chance. This series is an interesting take on the classic haunted house genre, with funky camera angles and heart-stopping moment galore.

I ate…

The winter chill and an ongoing longing for France coincided nicely with a dinner party I was hosting. With reblechon costing multiple times more than it would in France it . Sometimes I miss France so much that I need to have a soirée française. Followed this recipe. De rien.

I loved…

Sometimes you don’t realise what you have until it’s gone, but sometimes you don’t realise what you didn’t have until you have it. Never would I have expected a 72 cm bottle to be the object that turned it all around.
