5 Reasons Why…We’ve Loved January

Nobody likes January, right? Wrong. Here at The Hut, we’ve definitely not been feeling the January blues this year; instead, it’s been a month of positives, and we’re sad to see it go!

From fitness to fashion, discover why we’ve been loving January 2016…

We Love: January Fashion

January Fashion

The New Year has seen some beautiful pieces land on The Hut, and we’re too excited to build up our 2016 wardrobes. With covetable coats, delectable dresses and sought-after shoes, we’re a little bit in love with the new season collections from  HUGO, Gestuz, Boss Orange and Finders Keepers, to name but a few. Don’t forget accessories, either: have you lusted after the new designer handbags from The Cambridge Satchel Company, Aspinal of London and BeckSöndergaard yet?

We Love: January Fitness

January Fitness

The indulgence of Christmas can make anyone feel sluggish, and January marks the perfect opportunity to hit the gym and improve our fitness. We’ve been doing so in style, thanks to our new luxury sportswear from Adidas, Adidas Stella Sport and Asics – we’re definitely turning the treadmill into our runway!

We Love: January Beauty

After the chaos of Christmas and New Year, our skin is feeling a little lack-lustre and unloved. Luckily, January beauty trends forgo the heavy makeup and focus on a more natural, barely-there look, which gives our skin some time to breathe. By deep cleansing (did someone say Magnitone?!), treating ourselves with some luxury skincare, and beautiful natural beauty products, we’ve achieved a gorgeous January glow!

We Love: January Weather

It’s cold, raining and blowing a gale – and the perfect excuse to stay cosy in bed all January long. We love any excuse to stock up on blankets, pillows and snuggly homewares, and January marks the perfect time to treat ourselves to new luxury bedding and furnishings.

We Love: January Detox


Whilst ditching the turkey and trimmings can be difficult, there’s something extremely satisfying about healthy eating and detoxing. We’ve loved trying different juicing recipes this January, using our Sage by Heston Blumenthal Nutri Juicer Plus to create delicious and nutritious drinks. For our evening meals, we’re using the Oxo Good Grips Hand Held Spiralizer to turn carb-loaded dishes like pasta and noodles into fresh, veggie alternatives – bliss!
