8 Things To Make You Happy This January

23/12/2014 11:49 | Updated 20 May 2015

Post Christmas and New Year's Eve blues usually set in early January (the cruelest month), but before you get really depressed about going back to work, rejoining the gym and having no money - here's eight things to be happy about.

1. This comes out in the cinema on 2 January...

The Theory of Everything starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones is based on the true story of Stephen Hawking's first marriage - it's up for a Golden Globe and is exactly the kind of onscreen romance this month needs.

2. Download this track by Gwen Stefani...

'Baby Don't Lie' is available to buy and download from 11 January - think psychedelic The Wizard of Oz vibe, think Stefani's first new solo track in eight years.

3. Drink this...

Forget coconut water, it's ALL about pure maple water this year. That's right, sap that comes straight from maple trees is the latest wellness drink and it contains 46 naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and prebiotics.

Beauty booster drinks are still a thing, so buy this in bulk for results.

4. Follow this Instagram account...

How To Be Parisian will show you exactly that - and who doesn't want to master the art of looking effortlessly chic a la model and author Caroline de Maigret? Exactement.

5. Visit this fair...

Lady who loves her haberdashery? Check out The London Textile Fair for fashion fabrics and clothing accessories to take your look to a new level of fabulousness.

It's on the 14 and 15 January at The Business Design Centre in Islington from 9am - 6pm.

6. You can book tickets to see...

Love yourself some silky-smooth soul music? Don't miss Jessie Ware's UK tour dates from Saturday 24 30 January 2015 (Leeds, London, Bristol, Manchester).

She's the hottest thing on the scene right now. Starts at 7pm and tickets cost start out around £25 so book asap.

7. Get red carpet ready (from your sofa) for this...

The 2015 Golden Globe Awards! The nominations are all too good and you need to see who takes home the gong for best actress.

While Julianne Moore (in Still Alice) and Felicity Jones (in The Theory of Everything) are in the line up, we've got a feeling it's between these three leading ladies...

8. High rise dining just got better...

The Sky Garden opens on 5 January at 20 Fenchurch Street, London and is the ultimate destination for wining and dining with a city of London view - across three floors.

Basically, it has three food areas including a seafood and grill, an all-day brasserie and a cocktail bar called Sky Pod. Booking lines will open on 1 December at 11am - so get on the case.
