January Finds

How are we already only a few days out from February!? January is always one of those weird months that feels like it comes and goes in the blink of an eye while simultaneously feeling like it has lasted forever. Does New Years Eve feel like an eternity ago or what? Either way, I hope you all had the best January and that this new year is off to a great start!

I decided to start a new series here on Faith & Fancy where at the end of each month I highlight and share all the things I've discovered over the course of that month. I'm always coming across new and interesting reads, recipes, bits of information, and sources of inspiration, and I thought who else would I rather share them with than all of you!

I hope they all bring you insight, joy, inspiration, or at the very least they are just a good read! So to kickoff the first of many monthly finds, here is all of the things that caught my attention this month. Enjoy!


1. 85 Things I Believe (Above All) // Maxie is back with another amazing read (let's be honest when is she not amazing..?) Take the time to read all 85 things - you'll be happy you did, I promise!

2. 2019 Career Horoscopes // Whether you believe in horoscopes or not, you have to admit they are fun to read!

3. 10 TED Talks for the New Year // Looking for a little bit of inspiration? I'm almost certain you'll find it in one of the ten TED talks.  

4. Best Travel Reward Credit Cards of 2019 // Who doesn't want to be rewarded for their spending!? I know I do, and especially when the rewards involve travel! The Points Guy is without a doubt an expert in this area and will not lead you astray. 

5. Best Places to Travel in January // It's currently single digits in New York, below zero in Chicago, and I think it's safe to say it's flat out freezing in many parts of the country right now. Needless to say, who doesn't want to get away asap!?

6. A Guide to the Best New Places in Charleston // Jillian is one of my favorite bloggers and she happens to live in one of my favorite places, so I trust her recommendations a hundred percent. I can't even fathom how Charleston could possibly get any better than it already is, but this guide is making me think that is is possible!

7. 19 Places to Go in 2019 // Sign me up for all 19! I've caught the travel bug hard and am dying to get someone new! 

8. 30 Things I Learned in my 30th Year // One of my favorite reads of this entire list. 30 things I think we can all learn from, no matter what year or stage of life you are in. My favorite however is number 18. ... "True gratitude isn't ignoring the darkness. It's participating with your whole heart in whatever life brings." 

9. A Miami Travel Guide // Another one from Jillian and it couldn't have come at a more perfect time! A girlfriend and I are trying to escape down to Miami for a few days next month, and I know I'll be referencing this guide!

10. What's New in Charleston // Garden & Gun's version of number 6 on this list. As if I needed another reason to want to get back to Charleston! 

11. NYIAD Complete Course in Interior Design // For anyone who may be interested in interior design and entering the field by a more untraditional path, this read is for you!! It's so refreshing to know there are so many ways to achieve your goals and dreams, and you are never stuck doing one thing for the rest of your life.
