Sharing my January 2020 recap – including several new purchases, movies to watch (and skip), and my favorite restaurant in Charlotte!
WHAT I BOUGHT
spa headbands – love using them when washing my face or doing a face mask
neutral notebook planner
weekly desktop planner
badrot maxi tulle dress – returned, loved the off the shoulder style but not the largest fan of the skirt
maxi dress with sequin and floral beading – a little too low-cut for me but oh my goodness soo gorgeous
FOR THE HOME
WHERE I WENT
HOME – we stayed home again all month and I have to say I loved it! Especially knowing the travel that’s about to occur February-July. Get ready y’all we are going places!
We actually didn’t watch any movies this month. We stayed busy and also watched our shows – see below.
WHERE WE ATE
Belmont Cocktail Club – Joshua and I went here on a whim one night to celebrate something exciting! We did discover it is in fact a great place to grab a cocktail (hence the name) but not necessarily the best spot for grabbing a meal. We kicked things off with the baked pimento cheese which was incredible! For our meal, we opted for the grilled fig panini, pork belly confit, and the Italian panini. All pretty good, just not overwhelmingly great or filling.
Nellie’s Southern Kitchen – yet again! We absolutely love this place.
Lincoln Street Kitchen & Cocktails – Joshua and I had the opportunity to try out Lincoln Street’s brunch menu the last weekend in January. Six courses of deliciousness! We both left very full, very satisfied. This spot has turned into one of my favorites since having the opportunity to try their dinner menu prior to their October 2019 opening. I would highly recommend this spot for date night or brunch with the friends.

WHAT I WATCHED
We finished all three seasons of The Marvelous Mrs. Mazel – we both were completely hooked and could not get enough of it. We are definitely hoping season four comes out sooner rather than later. Also, dove back into This Is Us, Riverdale, and Dynasty. This Is Us has been soooo intense and it has me captivated for sure. Dynasty is better than ever and I live for ever episode. Riverdale is just okay and I’m honestly contemplating dropping it. Eeek!
Still all about FWTFL and have been able to get back to all of the workouts! Which has been absolutely wonderful and definitely helping me get back into the shape I was in before my knee injury last year. I’ve also started yoga and ohhh is my body, mind, and spirit happy. I’ve had it before and I’ll say it again again again, yoga is good for the soul! So happy to be doing it regularly again.
