In this space of Anti-Procrastination Updates, I will periodically share with you all the things–things that are important to me, things I want to get to, and things that help make life purposeful and meaningful.

I will share items I love that I would share in a conversation with my sisters or a close friend, and give a brief update on life and speak whatever is on my heart and in my head at the moment.

 

THIS ONE LIFE I GET TO LIVE

It is getting close to fall season and I am giddy about it! I’ve been delighting in looking up during my daily walks as yellow, orange and red leaves fall from the sky like floating confetti.

I look down as I walk and watch my feet crunch leaves that fell the day before. This crunching with every step can be heard all the way to California through the Voxer app I talk into while I walk and chat with my Cali friend, Karen (from Full of Hope Yoga.) 

Did you know she got in touch with me through this blog as a fellow cancer survivor? She then came flew in to meet me, and now rarely a day goes by where we don’t talk.

To think that if not for cancer, I would not have the gift of her in my life! I love telling that story.

{my Cali Karen Yogi friend–love her!}

Goodness, you know what else I love? Season change! Thank goodness I live in the Midwest.

I not only love the sights and sounds of the fall season,  but I’ve also been giddy about new fall scents.

My latest scent crush is the new Eggnog Latte Blend from Rocky Mountain Oils. It has all my favorites in one amazing scent…. Cinnamon Bark, Nutmeg, Clove Bud, Balsam of Peru, and Coffee together. Yes…COFFEE.

This cozy scent will take me from fall into winter.

If a feeling had a scent, it would smell how I feel when I’m under a cream-colored fuzzy blanket with my hands wrapped around a warm mug, legs curled up and tucked under in flannel PJ pants and my favorite read close by.

Yep, this is exactly the feeling I get with this scent!

Needless to say, I save it for the evening, after dishes are done and I’m ready to chill!

Eggnog Latte is a new release for fall. Two more of my fav fall scents are Peppermint Mocha and Pumpkin Spice Latte.

They are all 3 so festive, and if you want to try them or any other Rocky Mountain Oil, use any of the oil links in this post to help support New Nostalgia!

ONE BOOK I AM READING

High-Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard

This book is really helping me solidify healthy habits! I am only 3 chapters in and it is already changing how I think and do things!

 

ONE THING I AM LISTENING TO

The Brendon Burchard Podcast

I’ve been into learning more about productivity, and this podcast has the audio version of the book I mentioned above for free! I have been listening, then reading the book with highlighter in hand. It helps the information stick in my brain!

 

ONE SONG I AM LOVING

Braver Still by JJ Heller

“Now I can hear You breathe
You’re singing over me
You’re making me believe
In something better”

 

ONE PURCHASE I MADE

Turmeric Supreme by Gaia Herbs

I’ve been taking this supplement daily for the last 7 years and would not do without it. Turmeric has been touted to be cancer protective, and it is a natural anti-inflammatory.

The cancer prevention medications I have taken did a number on my joints, but I live pain-free thanks to my Turmeric Supreme!

I can’t tell you how much this product has helped me live my very best life! I could write an entire blog post about it!

 

ONE ITEM I WANT

Stainless Steel Facial Ice Roller

I’ve been seeing beauty bloggers rave about this item. It is supposed to be great for early morning eye puffiness and stimulate blood circulation.

I think it would be so cooling after showering before putting on makeup (especially for anyone dealing with hot flashes!) or for soothing a sunburn. It even says great for migraines. I’m intrigued.

 

 

ONE RECIPE TO TRY

Cauliflower Parmesan Crisps from Will Cook For Smiles

We have been making my Make Once Eat All Week Chopped Detox Salad recipe every week, and always have 2/3 of a head of cauliflower left over.

I’ve been looking for a yummy recipe to use that up and these cauliflower parmesan crisps look like just the right recipe. I bet they would be great with a bowl of lentil soup or alongside my mason jar salads.

ONE ESSENTIAL OIL I’M CRUSHING ON

As I said above, I’m crushing big-time on the new seasonal scent of Eggnog Latte. It is so comforting, especially when I diffuse it in the evening.

But…I’m still loving the scent of the Rocky Mountain Oil called Immune Strength oil in my all-purpose cleaner, especially because we have been having some cool, rainy, fall-like weather!

Think citrus and cinnamon together…yum. Bonus: it is a calming fragrance. Therapeutic cleaning..I’ll take some of that!

All-Purpose Cleaner

This is a breeze to mix up and works so well. Add essential oils for scent and their cleaning properties. A great surface cleaner that you will use and love everyday!
