Five Things in January 2022
Hello, gorgeousness! Welcome to my first Five Things post for the year 2022! If you're new to this series, this is a monthly recap, basically. I always accumulate the things that make me happy and grateful on that particular month. It's pretty chill and laid back and I can be a sort of conversation machine in here. 

If you're an avid reader of my blog, you're pretty familiar with how I roll in these posts. Also, I didn't get to say this a lot but thank you so much for being part of the usuals and reading every blog post of mine. I truly appreciate it. 

Anyway, what a long intro! Let's just skip to the good part. Here are my five things in January.

Beach walks
Sometimes the simplest things can make someone's day. A walk on the beach, for instance. Some little details can easily make me happy and content. That's why in 2022, I make it a point to go for a walk along the beach at least once a week.

The beach I always go to seemed like a deserted place which I never really mind, honestly. I really enjoyed having the vast beaches to myself. It allowed me to declutter my brain, shift my focus and think clearly. The moment when I can hear the wind and the sea waves is when I feel more alive content.

Exciting launches @ sisters & brushes
If you have noticed this blog (even my personal IG) has slowed down significantly lately. Two reasons:

  1. a huge amount of time and effort was spent on shooting shit loads of photos and finalising everything for a couple of our new launches at Sisters & Brushes.
  2. ...keep reading and only then you will know
All my weekdays and weekends have been occupied by these that I found completely no time for the blog even a me-time. But I honestly am grateful that people are pretty into these launches (hint hint: clay pins and clay rings) and some of them are even booked before they are released to the public. Mind = blown! 

Follow us on Instagram if you haven't already and not miss any new launches by turning the notifications on. I hang out a lot on there for obvious reasons, so see you there!

What would my Five Things posts be without my after-the-pen bullet journal flip throughs? I have to have a dedicated section for my bullet journal because it keeps me sane 24/7 and I like to look at my beautiful bullet journal spreads. What's wrong with that?

Tealive mangold milkshake with jelly & sago
I think I have never shared this with anyone but I am a huge mango lover. So when Tealive introduced this menu, I was thrilled! I went and ordered in a heartbeat. I believe they came out with a few other beverages as well that incorporated mango in them but this one, in particular, spoke to me.

It's so rich and packed with toppings like jelly and sago. If I were to get it again, perhaps I would ask them to take the toppings down a notch. It's loaded in there. Anyway, I hope this menu will stay for a while because it's so refreshing and yummy and just the way I like it. Are you a fan of mangoes? Have you tried this new menu?

...I got a job.
In the past couple of days, life just got busier. 

A huge chunk of my time has been dedicated to a new challenge at a new job. It's so strange having a job after a solid year just running my small business at the comfort of my own home as well as being a freelancer

I am so thankful for this opportunity but it happened in a blink of an eye and I am still not sure if this is where I should be. Am I ready to have another career? Am I going to be okay? Am I able to make new friends? I am not going to dump this blog, that's for sure. But please send in your thoughts and prayers for your homegirl because thanks a lot COVID for this unasked social anxiety. 
What a rollercoaster month. Anyway, how's your January?

  5. Coincidentally, I also like mangoes, mangoes are my favorite fruit, the only one! Whenever I'm tired, a mango can rejuvenate me! just like bob wig with bangs
