5 Good Things From Last Month

Good Things

After a never-ending January, February seems to have just sped past. When I look back upon the month, I really cannot fathom where all that time went. And it’s not even like it was a super busy month or some such thing.

I wanted to take a quick minute to round up a few good things that I tried and discovered last month. I’m going to try and make this a monthly feature but we’ll see how that goes. :)

What are some of the things that you’ve been loving lately? Tell me in the comments below – I’d love to know!


EAT: SPICED CHICKPEA STEW WITH COCONUT AND TURMERIC

I haven’t tried out new recipes in quite a while but I saw a lot of people going gaga over this one and decided to give it a shot. It turned out awesome for a first attempt and I think this is going to be one of those special recipes in my cooking arsenal.

This NYT/Alison Roman recipe is a really simple one and so flavorsome. Given all the comments about the amount of coconut milk, I started with half the suggested quantity, but worked my way up till I liked the taste. Finally, by the end of it, I ended up with a 1:1 ratio for chickpea to coconut milk!

This one is certainly a keeper.


GREAT HAIR PRODUCT: THE GOOD STUFF LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER

I’d picked up this leave-in conditioner from my much-looked-forward to Target run when I was in Boulder last August for my brother’s wedding. However, I only got around to using it last month… and boy, do I wish I’d discovered it sooner.

I’d been struggling with my hair for the last couple of months, so this really seems like a god-send. It leaves my hair super soft and manageable and I’ve noticed that it smooths out the tangles as well rather significantly. It really does take good care of my hair, especially the dry end bits.


WATCH: JOJO RABBIT

This was one of the best movies I’ve seen in recent times, not the least because of the special friendship between Jojo and Yorki. The movie is about Jojo, an enthusiastic young boy in Hitler’s youth army, who discovers that his mother has been housing a Jewish girl in their house. Torn between his loyalty to Hitler’s ideology and his love for his mother, the movie follows Jojo’s journey as he figures out what to do.

I loved almost everything about the movie, especially Yorki. I really do wish there were more scenes with Yorki. Archie Yates is a show stealer, and I absolutely cannot wait to see him in the reboot of Home Alone.


DECLUTTER: PROJECT LIFE SUPPLIES

To be honest, this one made me a little sad. Project Life was a big part of my life for almost 4 years till about 2016, but truth be told, I haven’t done anything about it (or memory keeping in general) since then!

After hanging on to the many Project Life supplies I’d accumulated over time, I finally decided to let it all go. Okay, okay, most of it. I am still holding on to just a shoe box size worth of supplies but it’s not so much for Project Life as a few other creative projects I have in mind.

The de-clutter felt really, really good though. There is something to be said for clearing up space in our homes and hearts… it just feels really freeing.


COSMIC GUIDANCE: LOOK UP THE STARS WEEKLY FORECAST

I’ll talk about my renewed love for astrology in a separate post but for today, I wanted to make a special mention to Julia’s weekly forecasts. It’s a paid subscription and it’s a little uncanny how accurate I’ve found it to be.

The Weekly Forecast is not really specific to your natal chart, or even your sun/rising sign. It’s a forecast for the collective, and covers all the key planetary movements, full moon/new moon highlights, and also a tarot guidance.

Typically, I read it with full attention on Monday morning, and then take quick glances through the week, mostly for some cosmic guidance (something I can definitely do more with! :)).

Sometimes when I remember, I try to look back on the past week’s reading on Sunday night, and it’s never failed to amaze me how on point the weekly forecasts are.

  1. Ha I was just looking for a recipe to use some chickpeas – wonderful.
    Also I understand the decluttering thing but I am always so hesitant to clean out art supplies. I am so sure I need it right when its out he door. But I do have too much.
