LIFESTYLE: BEST OF SEPTEMBER

static1.squarespace

SEPTEMBER was such a pivotal month for me! I finally took a vacation after two years of working non-stop, my sister got married, I quit my full-time job of over a year and a half and I made the decision to pursue LIFEBYLEESE, my holistic nutrition, wellness + lifestyle practice full-time.

It's been full of great joys, lots of love + support,  growth, challenges and decision making. Becoming a solo entrepreneur is not easy, at all. You are your work and if you don't work neither does your practice. I still have A LOT to learn, but I'm enjoying every second, even the valleys and growth periods. I'm taking each day as it comes, and become more clear with my vision, and purpose. This definitely isn't the easy route, but I wouldn't change it for the world.

Today I'm looking back at my posts for the month (click below the photo to go to the post!) and 4 of my TOP favorite things of September, 2016. I think it's important to look back, learn from of the mistakes you made, know your truth and worth and simply let go. It was such a glorious month, but I'm ready for the day, weeks, monday ahead!

Sometimes we think we're born with a 'slow metabolism'. While genetic makeup has a small part to play in metabolic health (only 2%-5%!!!!) There are many simple, cost effective and super maintainable ways to give your big M a magical boost.

STRESS! WE all have it, and always will. It's our bodies way of speaking to us. The biggest factor here is how do we navigate our stress, and channel it for good, not evil!

Healthy habits, and establishing a routine does not have to be expensive. In this post I actually demystify ways to establish more sound health practices, all for less than a cost of your morning latte. 

SEPTEMBER FAVORITES :

SEPTEMBER FAVORITES

AVOCADO POPCORN : Guys, I'm obsessed with this popcorn! Only 3 ingredients, organic, the oil of more than 1 and 1/4 of avocados and it actually tastes like Avo's, what more do you want? This is my weekly treat and I love it so.

PHILIP ADAM ACV SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER:  I love, love, love this shampoo and conditioner. Before I left for my holiday in August I bought a travel size of this Local + Canadian run business, and I'm not turning back. Once my samples are done (you don't need a lot!) I will be purchasing the full size as pictured above. I'm sure you've heard the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar for not only your body, but your hair, and ALL I can say it's all true. My hair has never been healthier, shinier and more full of body. They are still owned and operated our of Vancouver, BC which I also love. Local Love.

KARUNA SHEET MASKS: I've been playing around with a few brands these past few months (some natural, some not) and these have to be hands down my favorite! You can find them at sephora for less than $12 and I swear after your face 'marinates' in this mask, your skin will be transformed. I was actually shocked when I took off the mask.  I've tried them all, but my favorites are: Age-Defying, Brightening, and Exfoliating. But truth be told, you cannot go wrong with any of them. I've been doing one a week for the past month and it's definitely made a difference in my skin texture. These will also be my holy grail as we head into the epic dry months of winter.

SUN POTION ASHWAGANDHA: I've written about the magic of SUN POTION herbs and tonics HERE  before, and let me just say I believe these guys are the best out there. Their integrity, quality and sourcing simply can't be beat. They source this particular root from small organic farms in Northern India, offering an organic cold-water extract of the Ashwagandha Root, which is reputed to be the most potent part of the plant and may:

*Tonify the immune system *Inspire Vigor and Strength *Increase the body’s levels of Super Oxide Dismutase *Harmonize Mind, Body, and Spirit *Reduce the effects of mental, emotional, and physical stress

Check, check, check. I believe it does wonders for the body, mind and soul and have noticed a increase in clarity and energy since adding this into my tonics and smoothies.

Have a beautiful day ahead,
