I know i’m a bit late butttt Happy New Year’s to all my fitness bunnies out there!! I’m so grateful for everyone that supports me and I wish everyone the very best and lots of love and positivity!! Here are a few of the things that got me through December. It’s been a whirlwind 2015 but I loved every second. Can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store for all of us.
Starting left to right, top to bottom:
1. Baking: Lots of experimenting last month with healthy baking. One day I mess up a recipe, the next I create a new one by adding extra things I have in my pantry. Especially loving the Minimalist Baker’s recipes. Look out for lots more healthy treats on the blog. For my latest Bliss Balls recipe click here. and all other recipes here.
2. Books: It’s been awhile since I’ve had my head in a book. I’ve heard amazing reviews about Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. I’ve only just started the book but loving it so far! (photo from @freepeople)
3. To Bazaki: I had the chance to check out one of Athen’s health bars which I’ve been wanting to go to for awhile now. I love their concept and especially their little juice jars. To Bazaki is Greek for ‘the jar’ so the design is very fitting. When their are so many products out there – the aesthetics of a brand can very often be the one that pulls you in. A must visit if you are in the Chalandri area.
4. Epsom Salt: My sister sent me some Epsom salts which I’ve been wanting for awhile now. Will make a post real soon about the benefits and some of my fav DIY recipes. It’s amazing for soaking in the tub after a hard workout. The photo I’ve used here is from helloglow.co where Stephanie gives us 5 healing detox recipes. (also, how amazing are her photos?)
5. Decluttering: This December I’ve moved back to my old apartment to spend some time with my mother who’s visiting from Brunei. I usually can’t handle the apartment because it’s so cluttered that it seriously stresses me out. It needs some serious decluttering and I’ve been donating and giving away a lot of things that I know nobody in my family needs. Check out organisemyhouse.com’s article on 101 items to get rid of without regret. I think we can all relate to number 18: Anything that you didn’t remember was there! and the best thing to think about for me when getting rid of things – especially clothes – is that, if you haven’t used it in a year, you definitely do not need it. I say a year because sometimes you would use something in the winter but not the summer…so a few months isn’t so realistic for me. A good solid year of not wearing or using something – is just cluttering your home. And believe me there are people out there that could actually use your clothes/items that are just collecting dust at your home.
