I hope you've all had a great month! For me, September was the start of cool, Fall weather, the start of school, and the start of another season of working to simplify.
I've got just three favourites to share with you.
Skin Cleanse // Adina Grigore
This book was featured in my Green Beauty Books Post, a round up of green beauty books. I tried to keep that review short and sweet, and let the books speak for themselves.
But today I want to mention this book again. It has given me so much to think about. In the next few weeks, I'll be publishing my personal food and product journals, where I list what I eat and what I put on my body. I'm sure it'll be mind opening. I'll also be going on a two week long skin cleanse, where I don't put anything on my face. I'm sure that'll be life changing.
But most importantly this book has reminded me that while I'm using natural products, if i'm using over 100 ingredients every day, my skin will get over whelmed. If I'm eating ten apples a day, my body will get overwhelmed.
It's reminded me to take a step back and to evaluate what I'm including in my life, from my diet to my skincare routine, and ask if it's really necessary; if it's really assisting me, or if it's draining me.
If you haven't read this book yet, I really encourage you to do so.
The Girl in the Spider's Web // David Lagercrantz
I read these books as a teenager and adored them. I love the writing style and that there's always a lot going on within the character's lives.
This book was a continuation of the series, and although written by a different author, I still thoroughly enjoyed it. The writing style was a little different but not too much, and I felt the book was a really well done extension of the series.
Trail Mix //
After doing a short, three day food journal I realized I was barely eating any fats. It shocked me, because I'm always encouraging people to eat more healthy fats since they're so good for you.
I've since started adding lots of almond butter, full fat coconut milk, and trail mix into my diet, and I suddenly find trail mix to be absolutely delicious. I love tropical blends the most, with dried coconut and mango. What's your favourite high fat snack?
What were your September favourites?
Until next time,
