January is a complicated month for those of us living in the northern hemisphere.

On the one hand, we want to put on our sweatpants, curl up by the fire, and hibernate under a blanket with a big bowl of mac and cheese. But then there’s those pesky New Years resolutions lingering in the back of your mind, reminding us of our intentions for a healthier year.

Hi, hello, how are you?! Long time no talk. Sorry for going MIA over the past few weeks, but between school, traveling back and forth to NY, and – ya know – life in general, the whole blog thing took a backseat.
