Happy new year everyone! I’m hoping that you all are safe and pretty much happy (with complete body parts) as we enter this new year. I don’t know about you, but i’m feeling inspired!

There were a lot of things that I was grateful for last year. One of the realizations that I had last year is that there are so many things in life that we have to be thankful for. With our busy lives, we tend to just go on and live each day with out stopping to smell the flowers (Quite like zombies indeed!). So for this month of January, my posts will be the little mundane things that we take for granted, but we need to be thankful for (or at least I have to be thankful for).

The first two things on my list are two items that I discovered while picking up the groceries for the house. We live quite near to the newly built SM Aura, so obviously, that is where I go grocery shopping. I hear a lot of people say that they love the grocery there since there are a lot of items that you can’t find anywhere else.

The two items that I am thankful for that I have discovered are these two:


Chips Ahoy Brownie Filled


Chef Tony's Cheesy Jalapeno

I discovered these two delightful treats just recently. It’s such a pity though that I am already on a ‘sort-of’ strict diet. For those who love sweets, this variant from Chips Ahoy is ahhhmazzzzing! I love that it has brownies inside the cookies. Who would have thought that possible, right? Anyway, it’s not too sweet, that is why I love it.

I’m actually not a sweet tooth so my cravings are actually for salty stuff and having popcorn is one of my addictions. Now that I have discovered the Jalapeno Cheddar of Chef Tony’s, it has been especially hard to overcome my cravings! Damn it!

Anyway, you guys try it and see for yourself! These two top my ‘little-things-that-I-am-grateful-for’ list! These two products are the reasons why I love going to the grocery at SM Aura.
