Five Things We Are Loving This Month | January
Rage rooms (or anger rooms as some like to call them) have started to become all the rage in the United States and China.

The Spark of Joy with Marie Kondo
We admit it, we are hooked on Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix. The motivation to spring-clean your wardrobe after watching just one episode is amazing. If you are looking to get rid of some old clothes that live in your wardrobe and haven’t seen the light of day, this series is a must see! There’s something very entertaining in watching other people get rid of stuff in their house.
