January is almost done and dusted.
What a month – Mother Nature really has shown us who is in charge, the kids have gone back to school and resolutions have been set.
I think I need a little nap!
First, I will share with you the five things I have loving this month.
Purple Amethyst. I have been so drawn to this crystal this month. “More than any other crystal it will quieten the mind… allowing you to more easily make contact with spirit.” ~Healing Crystals for You.
Coconut Crunch. My dad actually got me onto this product and it’s so delicious! Coconut crunch is the natural air-dried coconut flesh after virgin coconut oil has been removed. It’s really high in fibre and iron. We use it sprinkled on cereal, muesli, chia puddings and in baking. You can get it here, direct from the wonderful people at Banaban, who are my most recent affiliates!
Ester Plus Face Serum. I have always shied away from oils and serums, having had oily and problem skin most of my life, but I am loving the serum from the gorgeous girls at Twenty 8. It is actually made from jojoba oil and a mere three drops massaged into damp skin is all you need. You can also use it as a cleanser. I just love the way it makes my skin so soft, without an oily, greasy feeling. As from everything at Twenty 8, it smells heavenly! Check it out here
Collected and Co. recycled notebook. The lovely people at Micador sent me one of these and it has come just at the right time, as I commit to writing down the things I am grateful for this year. It’s sturdy and beautiful quality and of course, I love it because it has been made from milk cartons. Very cool. You can get them online or in most Big W stores for $10.
Faith in humanity. It brings tears to my eyes to see the overwhelming kindness of people in times of tragedy. In Australia right now, we are struggling with flooding waters – deja vu of two years ago. I am not worrying quite so much about my parents who have been evacuated from their home. They have been touched at the small, but significant gestures from the small community they have been taken to. From baking cakes for them to eat, to providing them with a bed, the local people have come out in force. One elderly gentlemen arrived back at the evacuation centre with a handful of western novels for my Dad, after he noticed him reading one. It’s times like this that one’s faith in humanity is restored.
So, that is what I am loving this month. What is your top 5?
