The January hotlist

What’s happening guys?! Happy New Year to you all. I’m fresh off the back of a rather chilled Christmas break... and running through everything that’s hot this January. So let’s great straight into it.

What to read

It’s January and we’re all thinking about eating a little bit healthier. Rather than going down the traditional diet cookbook route, I thought I’d show you guys Jamie Oliver’s most recent book simply titled: 5 Ingredients.

The book isn’t brand new so some of you may already own it. But, if you don’t, it definitely helps get your mind into making simple and tasty meals. The bonus is they're only made with a handful of ingredients full of nutrients and flavour. Perfect for getting you up and running with your healthy eating goals this Jan.

What to wear

This month I’m all about the cosy vibes. We’ve just come off the back of Storm Eleanor and according to the weather, we’re about to experience the worst freeze for a decade. So I’ll mostly be living in PJs. Following the release of The Last Jedi in December, I’m still totally in the Star Wars mindset. This pyjama set from New Look on ASOS is bringing both of my favourite things together perfectly.

What to watch

Charlie Brooker returns with his 4th series of the seriously dark and twisted, Black Mirror. Season 4 has 6 new episodes, which work as standalone pieces... but with a few nods here and there to each other throughout, for fans to pick up on. If you’re a fan of the thought-provoking, wtf inducing show then get this on Netflix pronto.

What to stream

Being at the start of a new year means we get to look back at all of the best stuff from the previous 12 months. Luckily for us, Spotify do all the hard work for us and have put together this epic Best of Rocked 2017 playlist. If you’re a fan of Frank Carter, PVRIS, Neck Deep and Royal Blood then this bad boy has got you covered.

What to eat

I’m getting in early on the Japanese Dudefood which is set to be a big foody trend this year. Think Asian inspired foods that go perfectly with beer, we’re talking fried chicken and tofu, skewered meats and boa buns.

There we have it guys, 5 pretty epic things for you to give a go this January so grab your grub, stick on those pyjamas and get streaming!
