Along with springtime, fall is surely one of my favorite seasons – mind, body & soul reinvigorating, stirring up new & exciting ventures & hobbies, I feel completely lit up by this colorful & refreshing time of the year!
Ahhh! So here they are, 10 things that I’ve been lovin’ so far this season… some of these fall findings make for the perfect holiday gift too!
1. My “Lila & Zuri” Mala Beads
Earlier this year, alongside my mother, I’ve launched an intentional jewelry collection mainly consisting of statement gemstone Malas using raw crystals & “high vibe” stones. I LOVE setting my essence desires and intentions with these beautiful pieces. Practicing meditation, mantra reciting and wearing my Mala close to my heart is such a wonderful reminder of what I want to welcome and manifest into my world. Wear your intentions with allure (shop HERE). Want a customized Mala for that special somebody (maybe for you), contact me via “[email protected]” using headline “Custom Mala”!
2. Jo Malone Seasonal Scent
Jo Malone’s (my one and only, absolute favorite fragrance) “Dark Amber & Ginger Lilly” cologne is woody, sensual & spicy – perfect for the cooler days of fall! I love switching up my fragrance seasonally, each scent & season carrying its own essence and sweet memories… I could never get enough of Jo Malone! Browse Jo Malone’s Gift Giving page for ideas…
3. Candles Lit
Fusing aromatic scents with soothing & romantic candles calls for the perfect zen, cozy & sexy living space (solo or with your boo – no excuses to dim the lights & unwind). DIY scented candles is another one of my fall projects – simply because I just cannot keep spending as much money on candles as I do on food… or can I? 🙂
4. New Workout Routine
What better time to rev up your workout regimen than now? Unlike summer, I find it much easier to create a daily routine and stick to it when I’m back on a “regular schedule” – although my life is never quite predictable or planned out to the T, there is far less distraction during this time of the year – which makes it easier to stay focused and organized. In case you haven’t heard, along with my fellow trainer buddies, I am putting together a Free Video Workout Challenge for you guys this month! Can I hear a WOOT WOOT! “Like” my official MFS Facebook Page to stay posted on all the juicy updates of our upcoming #OwnYourBodyMFS Challenge.
5. “Leather” Jackets & Biker Booties
“I love rock & roll, so put another dime in the juz box baby!”
Ok, I’m lying – just a little, I was never a straight up rocker chick (I love many music genres – all depending on my current mood and feel), I did however rediscover grunge & rock in the past few years and I’m being more and more drawn to it! We’ve all got a hidden rockstar that is longing to burst out & shine! The rough & sexy rock look reminds me of the little renegade that I’ve always been and still am to this day <3 Browse through some cool looks via Pinterest HERE to get some rockin’ look ideas (and while you’re at it, make sure you follow me on Pinterest too – I’ve got a tons of inspiring boards that will keep you busy for hours!)
“Hungry man, reach for the book: it is a weapon.” ― Bertolt Brecht
BOOKS! My first love – words, though & contemplation have the power to bring me back home, to my core essence being. I’ve been devouring them like there was no tomorrow, one by one, over & over, each one being mind-blowing & soul enriching all at once! Snug right into your favorite knitted sweater & poor yourself a hot cup of coco while fueling up your mind and spirit with these cathartic finds!
On my bookshelf (and purse) these days are:
- Light Is the New Black: A Guide to Answering Your Souls Callings and Working Your Light – Rebecca Campbell
- Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires – Esther Hicks
- The Desire Map: A Guide to Creating Goals with Soul – Danielle LaPorte
- Creating Money: Attracting Abundance – Sanaya Roman
- Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear – Elizabeth Gilbert
- Yoga for Life: A Journey to Inner Peace and Freedom – Colleen Saidman Yee
Looks like it’s the season of MANIFESTING MY DESIRES alright! I’ll let you know when I become a master of manifestation (psst. will be sharing more on the subject on my new blog coming up SOON – for now, follow me via Instagram via ZURI_ROCKS for soulful love notes, inner guidance & sneak peaks)!
7. New Chill Spots
As a self-proclaimed, “do what lights you up” #girlboss, I love spending my time in some of the most trendy & inspiring cafes – sipping on good coffee, getting down to business and keeping things fresh & new #ImAnEntrepreneurBitch (yes I’ve got a board for that too)! Lately I’ve discovered a new groovy spot in my neighborhood, exactly what I was seeking… cool bunch, beautiful scenery, and the cakes, ohhh the cake!
8. Hikes in Nature
Although I’ve been getting my sweat on in nature all summer long, there is something mystical about strolling into the wild during this time of year… Absorb nature’s high vibes, zone out, tune in & don’t forget to make it playful – every chance you get, make your life playful (not sure where to begin – here are 32 Fun Ideas to Make you Feel more Awesome anytime)!
9. Personalized Photo Album
Call me old-school but the idea of gathering your fondest memories in one pretty & personalized photo album sounds like the perfect crafty present to me! Need some inspiration? Check out these artsy DIY pins to get your creative mojo on…
10. Hot Yoga
I was never an evening workout type of lady, until I started doing hot yoga on those cooler fall night… As we naturally tend to spend less and less time outdoors when it gets chilly, getting out and about for a warm and unwinding #hotyoga session has been the perfect way to end my day feeling peaceful, relaxed and grateful. Getting my #om on more regularly has helped me in different areas of my life, bringing on more focus, clarity and a grounding sensation in everything I do – I feel more aligned and in tune that ever before!
There is a time for everything, each season has its own pace & purpose – for me, the fall is a perfect time to plant new seeds and get in touch with what it is I want to consciously CREATE in my life during the upcoming months. How about you?
