How did it get to be October already?
I hope it’s warming up where you are and you are getting ready for summer and the festive season!
Here are some of my favourite things this month, plus some amazing deals for you and some ideas for Christmas!

There are some cute little gift packs over there too that would make perfect Christmas gifts.

♥ Halloween Popcorn. There is so much controversy about Halloween – you either love it or you hate it! Personally, I don’t mind kids having a bit of fun, but I don’t like the obscene amount of fake food that normally is associated with it. Here is a great idea to make for Halloween without all the nasties. It’s my Salted Caramel Popcorn. My friend Rachel pops it into individual cupcake papers to hand out to the kids. I think it’s a great idea!
♥ Wormly Organics – new kids on the block. Ricky and his team at Wormly Organics started their new family owned online health food store late last year after seeing a growing need for quality health products that were hard to source.
Their goal is to be a household name in Australia for the 1# online health food store – ‘we are the new kids on the block and we plan to be different’! As well as stocking a large variety of organic, gluten free and health food products, you will also find some interesting information on their website about health & wellness, industry news, recipes and featured guest bloggers.
Ricky is kindly offering all of you a 10% discount and a sample of Banjo the Carob Chocolate Bear with every order from now until the end of November. Just enter the code: newagemum at the checkout!! You can also keep in touch with Wormly Organics and what they are up to at their Facebook page.
♥ The Nourished Psychologist. I am such a huge fan of Monique Phipps! She is clinical psychologist, specializing in nutrition. The missing link! Her blog post about gluten and mental health is a must read. We have been getting some really good holistic advice from Monique and it’s really helping. You can get a consult with Monique via Skype, read her blog posts and keep in the loop with her on Facebook. I highly recommend this lovely lady – she has a big heart and her holistic approach to mental health is truly wonderful and effective.
♥ Milk and Masuki. Laura at fabulous online eco store, Sustainababy has a new range of gorgeous kid’s clothes – Milk and Masuki. This range is an Australian design label specialising in stylish eco-friendly baby and kids clothing. Their trademark geometric designs are modern and clean (and a lot funky) and made from organic cotton. For the first time, their spring/summer collection features an Aussie possum. There are a few cute items on sale too, so check them out over at the website.
Laura is kindly offering FREE SHIPPING for you guys! Woohoo! Just use the code: secretshipper at the checkout. But hurry, it’s only until the 14th of November.

♥ Easy Homemade Gluten Free Pasta. The always amazing and innovative Tania Hubbard from Grain Free Gluten Free Co has come up with this three ingredient recipe to make your own own pasta! She truly is Australia’s gluten free goddess!!! I am in awe at her quick and easy recipes. It makes eating real, whole foods that are also gluten and grain free, really achievable.

♥ Everyman Jack. Yeah, I know the blokes get a bit neglected here at NNAM, so this one is for them. I am absolutely loving this range of men’s natural body products from Simone at Nourishing Hub. There is deodorant, face wash, moisturizer with an spf, shaving cream and hair products. The prices are very reasonable as well, so I am thinking a little hamper for my teenage boy is the way to go for Christmas!
Check out the range online at Nourishing Hub.
♥ This quote. I saw this quote on Facebook and I keep coming back to it as it’s resonating with me so strongly at the moment. Do you like it?
