Happy October! I read somewhere this morning that we’re eight weeks away from Christmas. Excuse me, what!? I’m equal parts shocked and excited – I adore the festive season.
Today’s post is going to be a roundup of things I’ve loved this month. Enjoy friends.
I’m going to be honest, these three oil blends only arrived at my home yesterday, but I’ve already fallen for them. Yogi Elena Brower designed these blends in conjunction with doTERRA, and my gosh they have done a GOOD job. Each combination is unique in its scent and also its purpose. I’ve already diffused the Steadying Blend, Anchor, in class and it’s heavenly. I also used it in my svanasana head massage, and my students loved it. I can’t wait to explore this collection further.
Journalling might not be a ‘thing’ exactly, but I’ve enjoyed getting my thoughts out on paper this month. I’m not the world’s most consistent journaler, so I can promise you it’s not something you have to do every day to get the benefits from. I can feel an almost immediate shift in my energy when I start to journal out my thoughts and feelings – whether they be good or bad.
The Stauffer Life on YouTube
I’ve watched the odd video on this channel for a while, but I’m hanging out for each new video now. This US family of five have recently adopted in China and have just been joined by this adorable little boy. The Stauffers are only a few days in, and I’m addicted. Get ready to feel super emotional when you watch Huxley’s “gotcha day” video.
I feel like Marie Forleo introduced me to EFT and I’ve also tapped in a session with Jessie Reimers. But tapping has reentered my attention thanks to Gala Darling and her Radical Rituals: Abundance course. I’m someone who is happy to give most things on the ‘woo woo’ spectrum a go and I’ve been impressed with the shifts tapping is producing.
Vegan Butter Chicken
Sounds like an oxymoron doesn’t it? But, as with most recipes, butter chicken is rather easily vegan-ised. I use a recipe given to me by a friend and just replace the non-vegan ingredients with vegan ones, the method remains the same. It’s not an everyday food by any means and takes a bit of time to make, but it’s warm, comforting and filling. The last few days have been rainy here so it’s been perfect, served with some homemade vegan naan bread!
Put it in Writing – Digital Course
I’m so excited to launch my new course in a few days! This is a course for anyone who needs to write in their job or personal life. For the people who want to make writing easy! It’s a two-week email course where I will be sharing my favourite tools, activities, exercises and rituals to uplevel your writing game. Enrollment opens Thursday, October 19. I will have an early-bird sale, so make sure you’re on my list (sign up at the bottom of this page) to be the first to know when the shopping cart is open.
I’d love to hear some of your October favourites too! Leave them in the comments below.
