Seeing me through January
As a nutritionist, you can probably appreciate that January is a particularly busy time of year for me. Added to this, me being a “yes” girl - who can’t often say no to things be it personal or professional due to FOMO - I’m surprised I've even had chance to compose this blog post, however proclaiming that I don’t have enough time to blog is pretty pitiful given I only blog once a week, so here it is: this week’s blog post all about a few (five actually) of my favourite things seeing me through this eventful January.
*Potable Mobile Phone Charger
My job does involve a lot of national travel (I’m working on getting it to feature international travel!!!) and whilst I enjoy driving locally I’m not a fan of driving on motorways and in areas I’m not familiar; consequently I could spend part of my working day on a train. We all know the frustrating issue of trying to conserve battery power on your phone whilst in transit, especially at the end of the day, which is why I invested in this handy portable mobile phone charger, which has saved me on quite a few occasions!
Although I've had my iPad for a while now, it’s still one of my favourite things because I’m not one of those people who can do work on a train; I prefer to sleep, scroll through social media or surf the web looking at fashion and health-related items, and since putting down a deposit on another property (exciiiiited!!), my enthusiasm for interior design websites has been re-ignited too - the iPad allows me to enjoy all this whilst travelling throughout the working day
Those of you who have been following me for a while will know I love my hats for three main reasons: they add interest to an average outfit; they’re a practical accessory for those cold days; and they hide a bad hair day. The problem with the type of hats I wear is that you can’t shove them in a bag when you get to your client or the office, and I’m likely to forget it if I put it down anywhere else, so when I stumbled upon this UGG head band, I knew I was justified in buying another piece of headwear - it’s actually warmer than my hats too
*Thrice Rice Mix
Oh my goodness this thrice rice mix, (consisting of wild, brown, and red rice) is so delicious and of course healthy; it’s got this nutty texture and flavour, which suits my palate and taste, and it's equally as delicious cold. Whenever I cook it, I always make a double batch so I can use the leftovers in a salad the next day, which then takes care of the need to decide what to have lunch.
My cousin bought me a set of kettlebells for Christmas, which I keep in my bedroom for convenience and as a reminder to fit in some muscle strengthening home workouts – I can’t remember the last time I went to the gym!
What are some of your favourite things this month?
