It’s the month that everyone spends recovering from the Christmas period. Wow, the warm up of 2017 has been a mad one. We hope your year has begun well, here’s a round up of some of our highs and lows with some recommendations thrown in too!
Beca: City of Stars by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling from La La Land. Gets me every time.
Yana: Woman by Diana Gordon. I’m all about girl power this month!
Podcast or Book?
Yana: Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi is definitely worth the read. It’s about how history shapes us all.
Beca: Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of Eat Pray Love. This is a wonderful book and one that I will keep re-reading.
Something that could have gone better?
Beca: My new years resolution to kick 2017 off to a healthy, fit and chocolate free start hasn’t gone according to plan so far. But February is a new month, and I am not giving up that easily.
Yana: I got ghosted by a guy who appeared be REALLY into me. Timewaster.
Yana: I wrote in ‘I quit the gym’ about how I’ve taken my exercise outdoors!
Beca: Besides hitting the gym. I am keen to start a course of classes; Reformer Pilates at Bootcamp Pilates in Fulham. We went to a taster class at the end of last year which was incredible- Here’s a link to what we got up to.
Beca: I am obsessed with the crime series, Silent Witness on BBC1 staring Emilia Fox and David Caves. Every week there is a 2 part story which keeps you guessing until the end.
Yana: LaLa Land was an absolute masterpiece. When I first heard they were making a musical, I was sceptical but it worked out!
Yana: I need to stop spending money on breakfast, but The Dairy in Clapham common does it well!
Beca: Battersea Yoga, their Meditation Class is awesome. My goal is to make Meditation a daily practice in my life.
Beca: At the end of last year I found myself in a strange place full of panic and worry, with no clear direction in my life. I had abandoned acting and I was working long hours everyday. Eventually, I decided to reduce my hours at both jobs, accepting the pay cut and dedicate more time to acting and for myself. The change has made a huge difference already, that is a blog post in itself, watch this space.
Yana: The Women’s March on London was unbelievably empowering. 100,000 people marching for equality.
The energy was electric and it was amazing to see what we are capable of when we come together.
We would love to hear from you, tell us about your January…
