January Wrap Up

green-jan-wu

This month was a pretty great refresh for me. I constantly make the mistake of letting work and other things that stress out my life take up so much unwarranted time when I could be doing something I love like reading. I’ve made a lot of changes to help me focus more on reading a blogging. I bought a Life Planner with an adorable cactus theme because, hello I love my desert life, and just this simple act has been really pushing me to stay on task better than I have ever before. I’ve always been an organized person, but this has really taken that to the next level.

did start trying to read one book at a time, which didn’t include any reviews I was reading or audiobooks, and sort of failed? I’ve been chugging away through Lair of Dreams for a while now and I’m painfully close to the end. Unfortunately, because of this it kept me from reading ANY of the books on my original January TBR.

On a personal note, my husband and I bought a house in November and it’s finally starting to feel like home. We’re now completely moved in and focusing on the things we want to make better, like building some sick bookshelves in our spare bedroom to convert it into a library/office/extra closet for me. My husband and I got adorable matching tattoos and I simultaneously permanently paid homage to Carrie Fisher, who has always been a major heroine of mine. So I’d say, all in all, pretty good month.

What am I listening to?

Other than books, music is my second love. I, unfortunately, don’t spend as much time listening to music these days thanks to my obsession with podcasts and audiobooks, but when I’m in dire need of a good playlist I know I can turn to Nokkuo. Nokkuo is a minimalist design independent clothing started by a few friends of mine, with a collection launching in spring of this year. They aim to provide comfortable clothing for explorers of the unknown. On top of some awesome designs coming our way, they are my go to music exploration and provide some pretty rad playlists. Recently they came out with a best of January playlist which you can listen to here. I implore you to check it and them out.

I am obsessed with this picture of my three bandmates! It’s rare to find a photo of the three of them together while we’re playing a show, let alone without me ruining the picture with an unwarranted hair flip. You can check us out on facebook here.

How was your January?
