This weekend marks the soon end of another month. October left as soon as it arrived, however it has been a beautiful month. I have spent time with beautiful family and friends which never fails to make me smile!
This weekend also marks our 1 year wedding anniversary. This evening we are off to the beautiful hotel that housed our very special day to stay the night and have a yummy dinner. I can not tell you how excited I am to celebrate with The Boy and enjoy his company. Tomorrow morning we will be off to sunny Windsor to walk around and hopefully find some Conkers on The Long Walk.
Anyway…..let’s see what has been going on in my little home:
In The Kitchen:
I really don’t like food waste….nobody does! Over the last few months I have been working on a few recipes to make sure we eat all our leftovers!
One of our favourites is leftover tacos! We bung everything in a pan with some spices (and maple syrup because it is amazing on everything), pop them in a shell and *poof* dinner arrives! This is now our go to Monday dinner….roast leftovers are the best for this!
In The Bathroom:
I feel like every other month I am raving about a new body scrub….but I do love to exfoliate so I am not surprised!
I picked this little guy up on one of my Homesense runs, and it is amazing! The mix of coconut and coffee smells amazing with the added bonus of softening the skin. Small problem though….it makes a mess!! The Boy is not too pleased with the little black dots all over the bath….there is always some that get left behind!
In The Bedroom:
Big Breasted Ladies can relate to this…..boob cramp is HORRIBLE! I get these pains in the breasts when it is cold that hurt so much I feel like I am going to be sick.
Since getting this amazing YuYu hot water bottle I can now get my boobs warm, but not overheat because the hot water bottle is too big.
In The House of Lotz Spa and Retreat (aka The Living Room):
As you found out earlier this month….I love Autumn so so much! It makes me so happy!
To bring the beauty of the season into our living room, I have decorated our fireplace to be an autumn display of pumpkin goodness…..This will now stay up until Christmas, much to The Boys protest!
In The Portable House of Lotz (aka In my handbag):
No matter what time of year, Iced Coffee always has a place in my diet, however I am very conscious of my use of single use plastic and straws.
To avoid the use of straws no matter the occasion I now carry this collapsible straw that can be used in anything I might be sipping on! If you are interested in this, just pop ‘collapsible straw’ into the Amazon search bar and *poof* there it will be!
What have you guys been loving this month? Is there something I need to try and get my little hands on!
Have a wonderful weekend xXx hugs and love xXx
