Happy 1st February everyone! The longest month in existence is over, and we can finally start 2018 again without Dry January, fad diets and everything else that happens on the 1st of the year.
The problem with January is that it makes February seems even shorter by comparison, and it’ll be spring before you know it – not that I’m complaining, I can’t wait for lighter nights now.
Anyway, here are all the things I’m wishing for this month.
1. Discover Bath
Next weekend, Jordan and I will be heading to Bath for a couple of nights, which has been on our list for a while. Since the start of the year, we haven’t had a full weekend to get away somewhere, so I’m excited for a bit of downtime with my favourite person. If you have any recommendations, please send them my way!
2. Have An Evening A Week To Switch Off
I wasn’t very well towards the end of January, and I think it was body telling me to take it a bit more easier. Now things are starting to pick up again in the blogging world, I’m vowing to have at least one evening off social media per week (maybe more if I feel I need it) to do absolutely nothing.
3. Enjoy Dinner With My Friends
We have our next ‘Alphabet Come Dine With Me’ scheduled in for this weekend, and it will be the first time we’ve all been together since before Christmas. The country is Russia, and it is at my friend’s house in Chester, which I haven’t yet been to – I can’t wait!
4. Restaurant Launch
In a couple of weeks, I will be attending a restaurant launch in my hometown of Altrincham, which is really exciting because the vibe of the place sounds right up my street – pizza and chicken! I can’t wait to see what the place will look like as two of my very close friends have been working on this for months.
5. Wedding Fair
This month I’ve also got a wedding fair to attend at Tatton Park with my married friend and my engaged friend (can you tell everyone else is sick of me by this point!) It’ll be really lovely to spend time with them both, and hopefully pick up some inspiration for the big day!
6. Work Night Out
We have our first work night out of the year tomorrow, and I’m really looking forward to letting my hair down and having a few drinks with everyone. Last time we went out with work people, it got a little bit messy and we ended up in Chinese karaoke until 2am in the morning – not my finest hour.
7. Enjoy Trying A New Restaurant
I’ve been really lucky this month that I’ve been invited to try out a classic restaurant in Manchester towards the end of February, which is a place I’ve always wanted to go to. I won’t say too much about it, but if you’re from the city, I reckon you definitely will have heard of it.
8. Bake Something New
I haven’t baked anything since November, so this month I’m making it my mission to get back in the kitchen and whip up some sweet treats. I’m a novice in the kitchen until it comes to baking, which is something I really enjoy – if you have any recipes, in particular, you’d think I’d like, please let me know in the comments.
9. Try To Save Some Money
Now that I’ve pretty much paid off Christmas, I’m hoping to be able to start saving some money again this month and I’ve got quite a few things this year planned that I’m going to have to pay off soon. We’ve also started saving for the wedding which has made everything seem so much more real (and exciting!)
10. Continue To Search For THE Dress
I’ve been to a couple of wedding shops so far looking for a dress, but I’ve still yet to find the one for me. I have a set style in my head that I’d like, and so far I haven’t seen it anywhere, so here’s hoping this month I do. If there are any boho-style shops out there that you’d think it’s worth me looking into, drop me a message as I’m all for recommendations.
And there you have my wishlist for this month.
What are you hoping for in February?
