This month I can't really think about how to start this post. February has been a funny one, mixed with great experiences, being ill, stressing about work and a couple of breakthroughs so I'm really not sure what to make of it yet, never mind talk about it! A moment that stood out was when Alisa Vitti, author of Womancode tweeted about my post and the visits to Sunshine & Glow went into unprecedented highs. I sat back and soaked it in, because I also knew it was temporary and didn't mean that those people would stick around beyond that one read. Yet, I enjoyed checking my Google Analytics several times a day and seeing that there were people from over 30 countries taking a look. Pretty exciting, huh?

Sometimes bloggers try to find catchy titles for our posts hoping that in the big ocean of the internet they will stand out and will make you stop and take a few minutes to read what we have to say. Sometimes those titles can be a bit over the top, along the lines of "The one app you need in your life", "The 5 things that will bring you happiness", "The holy grail foundation/eye cream/mascara"... You get the gist. The title for this post today was the most honest I could think of, because I truly think that every woman should read the book I am going to talk about today.
But first, let me tell you why, and let me warn you that there might be a bit of over-sharing here, so if hearing about women's health, period pain, PMS and conditions like endometriosis or fibroids makes you uncomfortable, you are more than welcome to close this window, but I would encourage you to grit your teeth and keep reading, because it is your health after all (if you are a woman, that is!). Here it goes.

I don't think I have ever started a year with so many good intentions as 2016, mostly health related, so it is not surprising that this post is going to be mostly about that. I've always though of January as a gloomy month, with Christmas gone, the weather being really cold and days still short and dark. For the past few years I have developed some fondness for it and it is a time to be cosy and a new beginning. So, in no particular order, here are the things I particularly enjoyed.
