Happy Last few days of October everyone!
October has to be one of my favourite months in the calendar. The leaves are changing, it’s getting colder and Center Parcs is usually around the corner for us….but not this year…….
This month has been mental with wedding/honeymoon stuff…..and stress in general…so…..what has kept me sane this month:
In the Kitchen:
Or should I say from the kitchen this month??
I’m about to sound like one of “those people”….but….your gut health is soooooo important!!! After spending a while not eating in the best way that serves my body, my poor little gut bacteria have not been happy campers. It’s really shown in the way my stomach has been feeling. To be truthful it has been affecting the way I feel all over……I’ve been sluggish, moody, bloated…….it has not been pretty!!
After much research I have found this little bottle of goodness has been doing wonders for my health! Kombucha may sound like the oddest thing to drink on a nearly daily basis, but combining this with a healthier eating plan I have been feeling a million times better!!
In the Bathroom:
Charcoal……another hipster thing that I have found the benefits of, but this is something I can get behind! My Dad has been taking it for years to help with digestion. He usually chews it and he noticed a massive difference in the whiteness of his teeth!
As I take a bunch of supplements, it was not something I could add into my routine. Charcoal absorbs anything that you have in your stomach, so if you take something else at the same time, you are not going to get any of its goodness. In a bid to get it into my diet, and whiten my teeth for the wedding, I picked up for charcoal toothpaste!
It’s amazing! I have seen such a difference…….only problem is it makes a massive mess in the sink!!!
In the Bedroom:
I have a lovely new addition to our bedroom, a Himalayan Salt Lamp. I know, I know……you might as well call me a hipster or basic…..whichever is best for you!
Salt lamps have so many benefits, which have proven very helpful in the last month! They reduce stress levels, balance out the effects of the constant use of electronic devices, purifies air and can speed up the healing process. This last one is a big one for me at the moment as I have a new piercing (post will be coming about that soon), so the faster it heals the better.
In the Livingroom (aka The House of Lotz Spa and Retreat)
My Maids of Honour are amazing!! They know me so well!!
At my Hen Weekend, these beautiful ladies brought me this amazing candle!! This is lovingly known as the “Sexy Man Candle”….so if you are near a Yankee shop/concession please go and take a sniff!!
Thank you lovely ladies! It has been making our home smell amazing!!!!
In the Portable House of Lotz (aka in my handbag):
Doing last minute wedding prep has resulted in me needing all sorts of difference pens and stationary bits and bobs.
This simple case from Muji has been super helpful in keeping everything I need together…..and I can keep paperclips without them walking off!!
Have a great weekend lovelies!! Curl up in your favourite chair with a yummy treat and enjoy the Autumn foliage!
