Another month has come and gone and it’s time to talk about the things I loved in January!
I’ve mostly been listening to the playlists for TLM. The are TLM Novel Playlist, TLM – Becky Playlist, TLM – Elizabeth Playlist, and TLM – Nicholas Playlist.
I also finally started listening to the Hamilton soundtrack and I completely understand the buzz around it now. I’m obsessed and crossing my fingers that eventually it makes its way to Boston.
Audible – I’ll talk more about the books I’ve been reading or listening to in a minute, but I listen to at least 1 book a month. Try an Audible Free Trial!

We moved right around Christmas, and the new house has forced hot air heating. That combined with it being January in New England meant that I had to change my foundation routine from the Rimmel Stay Matte foundation to using their primer with Revlon foundation so that my face isn’t oily but isn’t drying and breaking into eczema. Also, fun fact, the foundation shades I use (depending on my anemia levels and the brand) are light ivory, true ivory, ivory, and buff. In case anyone wondered if I was pale or not.
Supernatural – I decided to rewatch it and it was an excellent decision. And my love for it was reinforced and now I have a lot of feelings.
Inside the American Mob – A really interesting documentary series for anyone interested in the history of the mob.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer – Once I finished Supernatural, I still wanted a more Supernatural-esque kind of show, so I decided to rewatch Buffy, too. I only watched the first 3 seasons the first time around, so we’ll see if I stop there again or keep watching.
The Loft – I liked this a lot more than I expected to! I completely didn’t expect the ending and am rather impressed by it.
