January Favorites

As you can imagine January has not been a good month. With all of the shutdown drama going on it's been pretty hard trying to keep my focus on what's important. But as I said in my post on Friday, I am just trusting that God has a plan for all of this.

Now let's get into some of my favorites for this month, shall we?

First on my list has been this ginger with chamomile tea. I can not stop drinking it! It is so delicious. It has been an absolute favorite for the entire month. I have so enjoyed this with some honey. It is marvelous in the morning with my breakfast! 

Second on my list has been my new Varidesk! Our office ordered these some time ago and some staff members have left leaving some leftover! I requested one about 3 weeks ago and I am loving it. It has been such a game-changer for me. I love being able to stand for a few hours. Working as a paralegal and sitting all day can have bad effects on your circulation. Trust me I am starting to fight a few varicose veins but this tool is sure to help me get back on track. Love it!

Third on my list has been my new turmeric gummies from mykind Organics. My local Fresh Thyme sells them. You can order them online for about $20. They test so well! I have one a day along with the multivitamins that I take in the morning. I don't know if I have any inflammatory issues (although I believe my varicose veins are one), I still take them to build healthy habits. If you find them you should try them. Absolutely delicious! 

Fourth on my list has been my new faux flower arrangements. There has been a world of difference in the way my home decor looks. Everything looks so fresh and beautiful. I have really been happy with the turnout. Read my blog post here if you are interested. 

And last on my list has been my spinach scrambled eggs. They are so good! I make these every weekend now. I enjoy this dish so much and it is so filling. So glad I tried it! See my blog post here about it. 

Well, that's it for this month. We will see what February holds. I am not sure. I know that I wanted to schedule a facial for the month of February. I have never had a professional facial! Can you believe that? I also have to begin plans for my daughter's 14th birthday! I can't believe my baby girl is going to be 14 in March! So scary. Well, I hope that you enjoy your week!

  1. Hello Mrs Shockley. I am glad you mentioned the turmeric. I used to take this some time ago but ran out and never did buy more. This is a good reminder for me. I love your office! It would make me look forward to going to work every day.

    1. Hello Gloria,
      I am just now seeing this! So sorry! I loved these turmeric gummies. I am waiting for them to go on sale to buy more. Thank for for the compliment! Your space should always make you happy!

  2. Definitely going to try the Gingerand Chamomile tea. The Varidesk is very popular in offices in Australia. June
