My lust for expansion and art and energy that rushes through us like electricity (the best!) has me constantly on the lookout for new ways to tap into life, new trends and products and even new foodie breakthroughs.
Today, let’s get the excited & inspired energy flowing and flowing!!!
Smoothie Bowls. The one above stright from SmoothieBowls on Instagram.
Could a day start better than a with bowl of raw, gorgeous and delicious textures and layers of organic fruit and super foods?
I’m so deeply moved by images of these bowls that I started fashioning my own. It reminds me of the college days of constructing the most perfect salad in the salad bar, though now we have many more options like edible flowers and bee pollen and raw chocolate and rare tropical berries and greens to add to the mix.
To make your own basic smoothie bowl: blend your typical smoothie with 1/3 less liquid/water(roughly, think pudding texture!), and slowly pour into a bowl. Now, add the super-goodies! My favorite toppings are: nuts, homemade granola (A+++), toasted coconut, super-fresh fruit, coconut whipped cream and LOVE. You gotta add love or it just won’t taste the same.
Many many Fall & Winter smoothie bowls coming to the blog soon, but this will get you started!
USB Aromatherapy. Serene House has hit next-level for me with this USB-powered aromatherapy diffuser! The wild convenience of being able to bring aromatherapy with me to the local coffee shop is outstanding. While I thought the scent would be everywhere, the radius is quite small and will just hit you with the dose you need, sparing anyone across the room who isn’t up for extra-energizing. The best fring benefit of this diffuser is that it converts into a car diffuser- plugging stright into a cigarette lighter- for an essential-oil filled car that keeps you calm and alert.
HERE’s the latest science on coffee. Personally, I can’t drink it, but the benefits of smelling it alone – from waking you up to brightening the day- are plenty for me!
Just a few drops of high-vibration Coffee Bean Essential Oil (my favorite: Living Librations) make into a body oil mixed wih some coconut oil can boost any mood, raise your energy from the outside-in, stimulate a glow of circulation and is also an amazing antioxidant.
No Coffee Bean Essential Oil for you? Empty your French Press coffee grounds into a bowl once your morining coffee is done, and mix about equal parts coffee grounds and coconut oil (hint: it will melt easily if the coffee grounds are warm) along with about half as much sugar into a body scrub that is delicious! Massage it into your skin with abandon and your whole bathroom will smell like Heaven – or, at least, a heaven made of sweet coconut coffee! (hint: make sure your shower drain has a filter on it so the grains don’t clog your drain!)

Hang Out With Aura Quartz:
These are my favorite decorating goodies hands-down. I also love wearing them. And, despite the fact that I used to think these were “fake” crystals …they may be even cooler than “real” crystals that are plucked straight from the Earth.
Aura stones are not borne directly from the earth… but they are made to be super-charged in the proces of binding metals to their surface. As it turns out, these blindingly bright aura stones are deeply charged with meaning, too! HERE’s where you can find out more about all kinds of aura crystals and their stories.
Forest Awesomeness: If you can’t find any of the above goodies to try right now, there’s a simple scientifically proven wonder to make your life more grounded and powerfully plugged in: HUG A TREE! Even an afternoon in a big forest with lots of trees to hug can revolutionize your mood and vitality in profoundly awesome ways…!
