January Favorites!

January has been a great month! I wanted to share with you a few things that made January wonderful. Today, I’m sharing with you a few of my faves!

  • Favorite Song: Gonna Love Me- Teyana Taylor

I stumbled upon this song through Pandora. I’ve never really listened to a lot of her work, but I absolutely love this song and listen to it almost every day.

  • Favorite Bible Plan: Awakening: 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting (Written by Stovall Weems)

My church participated in a 21 Day fast and my Pastor asked all members to read this plan corporately during the duration of it. The plan was amazing and helped me to see God, prayer, and fasting in a totally new light! You can find the plan on the Youversion Bible App.

  • Favorite Bath & Body Product: Good Soap

I came across this product a few months ago. It is amazing! The soap is 100% natural and only uses 100% fair trade ingredients. All of the proceeds help families and communities all over the world. This month I bought Lavender, Almond Milk, and Peppermint. You can find these scents and more at Whole Foods!

  • Favorite Recipe: Veggie Tacos

During our fast, we weren’t able to eat meat, sweets, and a few other things. Not being able to eat a few everyday staples forces creativity. My best friend and I had to think outside of the box and kept each other accountable by trying fun and different recipes. One of my favorites was veggie tacos. It was quick and absolutely delicious! It consisted of green, red, and yellow bell peppers, onions, and one pack of taco seasoning. After sauteing the vegetables and mixing with the seasoning, we placed it in warm corn tortillas and topped with cheese, sour cream, and taco sauce. If you’re looking for a easy lunch or dinner, you have to try it out!

  • Favorite Moment: Baby Announcements!

December and January have been filled with baby announcements! Three people who are close to me have announced their pregnancies and all are due this summer! There’s a baby coming in June, July, AND August. I am ecstatic, as this is each person’s first child. I can’t wait to be officially be “Aunty Tia”!

  • Favorite Movie: Crazy Rich Asians

If I’m honest, the title of this movie didn’t intrigue me, but my best friend insisted that we watch this movie. I am so glad that I listened to her. This movie was amazing and highlighted another culture in a positive light! It had a great story line and was filled with so many awe factors, glam, and fabulousness. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

  • Favorite Book: Believe Bigger- Marshawn Evans Daniels

I started this book in October and didn’t get around to finishing it until this month (better late than never right?). It is geared towards to Christian women and empower readers to go for their purpose boldly and unashamed. It taught me some things about myself and helped me solidify my place in the Kingdom. I will definitely recommend if you’re wanting to take your faith and belief to the next level!

Those are just a few of my January highlights! What was one of your favorite things in the month of January? Let me know!
