Overall, January has been a pretty good month for me. I mean, the last couple of days have been stressful (house problems!) but up until then it was great.

My word for this year is “happiness” and I can honestly say with confidence that I have felt the happiest I have felt in a very long time.

I’ve spent a lot of time looking after myself and focusing on how I can incorporate more positivity into my life. I’ve been working on projects that make me excited and that genuinely inspire me, and I’ve been bringing ideas to life that have been floating around in my head for years.

I told you I wouldn’t make you wait too long for the next post in this series!

Here is day 5. The Subway, Brooklyn Bridge, Grimaldi’s Pizza and not one but two ferries!

On the Friday, we decided to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to find Grimaldi’s Pizza. But first, we had to get to the Brooklyn Bridge as we were staying at the other end of Manhattan. The Subway seemed like the best/cheapest option.

Now, I’ve got a pretty good sense of direction, and I tend to pick up transport networks quite quickly. But the New York subway? Ha. It’s got to be the most complicated system in the world.

I love clearing out my wardrobe. In fact, I love it a bit too much. I’ll quite happily get rid of half of my clothes in one swoop and then leave myself with nothing to wear!

I start by taking everything out of my wardrobe, and then slowly work through my pile of clothes figuring out what I want to keep. I have to admit, I do use Marie Kondo’s method of taking each item and asking if it sparks joy, which actually works a treat. I also try everything on because there’s no point in holding on to clothes that no longer fit.

Then once I’ve touched and tried on every item of clothing, I’m using left with a huge pile of unwanted clothes.
