10 things to do in january

Posted January 13, 2015 by tambarr1 in family and home / 0 Comments

I have been a faithful reader of Cosmopolitan Magazine for 15 years. I read Cosmo to find out the latest and greatest about any and everything.  I love the articles, the advice, and the graphic art (if you know what I mean). What can I say, I’m a visual learner. I especially love the January issue for its oh so predictive Bedside Astrologer, which reports that the Pisces women have a great year in store!

So to honor Cosmos 50th Birthday, I plan to participate in they have  created a game plan of 50 things to do this month.  I decided to do 10 of the 50 suggested items for 3 reasons: 1.committing to all 50 is a little too much for me right now, 2. I chose 10 things that will feed my soul this month, 3. The list includes some items that I already had on my own agenda to do.  See, I am relevant.

(adapted from Cosmo’s 50 THINGS TO DO THIS MONTH)

1. “Eat the Pie”.  Jan. 23rd is National Pie Day, and since Jan. 2nd, I have been participating in the 21 Day No Junk Food Challenge.  And if my count is correct, I plan to celebrate my steadfastness with a most slice of America’s favorite: Apple Pie  a la Mode.  

2. See Selma (done).  And all I can say is wow!  Selma is as excellent as it is disturbing.  All I can say is thank you Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for having a plan and the courage of heart to stay the course. “Negotiate, demonstrate, resist.”

3. See The Wedding Ringer.  I can’t wait to laugh at Kevin Hart.  He is hilarious.  Need I say more?

4. Add Meghan Trainor’s songs to my iTunes playlist.  I love to dance, and Meghan Trainor’s catchy songs have been on repeat in my mind.  Don’t tell me you disagree, “I know you lie cause your lips are moving…”

5. See what all the hoopla is about Birchbox.  I am such a sucker for stuff in a box, especially a box that claims it’s going to give me a Fresh Start.

6. Find the perfect shade of red lipstick to see if it’s really as seductive as it’s rumored to be.

7. Purchase a pair of functional “Touch-Screen-friendly” gloves  to use my device(s) in zero below temps (done).

8. Read 1 book I wouldn’t choose on my own: A Small Indiscretion and The Girl on the Train.  Having a hard deciding which one to read, and time is running out. Which do you think I should read?

9. Organize my handbag, and finally be able to find my keys or switch out purses in a jiffy.

10.  Work on finding my balance in January that will help me maintain a zen-filled spirit throughout the year with Mia Togo’s Daily Yoga.

What are your plans for January?
