  1. Sounds like a lovely month! So depressing that Sherlock only existed in January and now we have to wait another eon for the next series. I'd love to know how you get on with Lolita Bee, it's one of those books I really want to read but just never seem to get round to.

  2. So glad you included the parkour clip from The Office hahaha. PARKOUR! x

  3. Hah, wow, Luke's got a fair few books going on at once! I'm still trying to get through the GoT series...

  4. You guys seem to have had a fantastic month! I loved reading your film review post, helped me get-together a list of ones I want to see :)

    This month has mainly been about working on keeping the blog updated regularly, getting back into my final term of uni & thinking about my future.

    February for me is all about getting ahead with my Dissertation, planning my summer holiday & *fingers crossed* getting somewhere with the job hunt!

  5. I love this little post, but yeah.. I love this whole blog! This month I did a lot actually. I went to Utrecht (In The Netherlands) did nice things with friends and read a lot of books and watched a lot of movies. I baked a few cakes too. I love baking! In february I just want to continue this. Just doing all the things I love.

    And thankyou for your lovely comment on my blog! It was so sweet :)

  6. I love Catfish, Nev and Max are far too cute <3 <3 Good choices all round (especially anything Game of Thrones) ! :) Hope you get the sleeping sorted soon x

  7. Man, your January has been way more interesting than me- Eat. Cycle. Work. Repeat. I did manage some serious clicks on my bike, Feb plans are even more and to work LESS- I do not get paid enough for more months than Jan!
