How are you? I hope you are having a great start in 2017! I know you all have set some goals for the new year as the most of us like the new starts and the promising beginnings. And I also know that requires time and effort to go wherever you are planning to go and to achieve any of your goals. But, as we try our best to complete our resolutions, sometimes we need to slow down, we need to relax and to enjoy the little things we love doing in our life. So, today I am sharing with you things I currently love doing, this first week of the new year.
My Spotify playlist: My top Songs 2016, a collection of all the songs I loved most this last year. It includes some relatively recent releases like ”Lost on you” by LP, or older ones like ”Born to die” by Lana Del Rey and many more oldies but classics, like my all time favorites songs by Il Divo, Andrea Bocelli and Melody Gardot.
Actually one movie: The light between the oceans. A lighthouse keeper and his wife living off the coast of Western Australia raise a baby they rescue from a drifting rowing boat. Having read the book recently, I was certain that the movie couldn’t be as good as the book was, which is very common in book adaptations to movies. Now I can fairly say I wasn’t disappointed. The actor’s performances as well as some secondary roles were amazing. Adding to that the wonderful music/soundtrack and the unique photography made this movie one to stay in my mind for long.
As in Greece we are mid winter at the moment with temperatures around 0 degrees this month, beverages like tea, hot chocolate and coffee are the best to keep us warm. This week I tried hot chocolate with orange flavor and it blew my mind. But, since one of my 2017 resolutions is to eat healthy I tried to avoid things like extra cream on top and tried to limit it to two cups a week. You can have it to the fullest if you prefer. Enjoy!
The Curated Closet from A Beautiful Mess As I wrote in my last post, I really want to be more organized in 2017. That means I have to organize my wardrobe as well (with a little help of this book). Great book review!
5 Free Printable Calendars for 2017 from Little Things With Jassy. A wonderful collection of printable and free calendars for 2017. Jasmin is a new online friend, a great blogger and a soon mom to be.
All things Danish: I have never been to Denmark. But I would love to visit Copenhagen this year and as Denmark in not on my Travel Bucket list it’s a totally new love. Have you ever heard about the Little book of Hygge? The Danish way to live well? Well, I have recently read this book and I am more than ready to discover all by my self whether Denmark is the happiest country in the world, as often said, or not.
Well, that’s all the things I loved doing this week. What about you? What have you loved this week? What are some of your favorite books, drinks or anything else? Let us know in the comment section below.
As always, thank you for visiting and have a great day!
