I’m into celebrating. And I recently found myself stuck on the word favourite. Like it meant lesser than, greater than. Instead I’ve decided to reclaim the word as a way of celebrating the things/people/experiences that are in the forefront for me.
Here are my March favourites and….oh, what a juicy month it was.
For those of you who follow my journey on instagram, you know I spent a majority of my time in Mexico, navigating my work and life harmony, podcasting, relationships, and my heightened focus on my health.
With a theme of presence, power, and expression, here was a quote that made the corners of my mouth curl.
“If you were in your body you’d be home by now. —Berkeley bumper sticker”
Favourite moment : Lady Alpha Photoshoot with some of my favourite women. We laughed, we struck poses, we hugged, we stood together, supported each other, and continue to. It was one of the best days, my cheeks hurt for days.
Favourite book : The Five Keys to Mindful Communication – I LOVED this book. It presenced me to so much of what communication is about, being, listening, truly hearing people, being in the practice of witnessing life without so much damn judgment and mind chatter. I highly recommend this one. The audible version was narrated perfectly.
Favourite podcast : Tim Ferriss with Gabor Mate : New Paradigms, Ayahuasca, and Redefining Addiction | Aubrey Marcus with Anahata Ananda‘s conversation about the phases of Manifestation | a convo I had on Briana Bowley’s Podcast “The Live Free Experience” about the Cyclical Nature of Women and the Wild Woman Archetype (so good).
Favourite creation : My Spoken Word Piece “Woman, I Want to Apologize.”
Favourite food : Chia Seeds, I recently have re-found my love for these little beauties. MCT Oil, just yes. Lakanto sweetener (this stuff doesn’t affect your blood sugar, is natural AND tastes exactly like sugar) And obviously Cauliflower (whats new?).
Favourite supplement : Bitter Melon : I am presently healing my imbalanced blood sugar (potential insulin resistance) and this has been bomb. It feels more natural than chromium supplements I’ve been using for a while. Inositol has been another supplement in the forefront for me.
Favourite app : Space App. You know Im all about being aware of our habitual ways of being and this app is genius. If you’ve been finding yourself scrolling or consistently on SM, this app gently supports you to interrupt the patterns, tracks your daily use, and provides ways to eliminate the unnecessary social media time.
What’s in my ears : I’ve been pulling back the 90’s favs, here’s a playlist. I’ve also been mildly obsessed with anything Andreya Triana and I’ve had Stand by Me by Ben E. King and Father and the Sun by Empire Cast stuck in my head most of the month. While I work I’ve been enjoying Chopin and No talking ASMR – its a weird fascination I have with “sounds that feel good”.
Favourite people to follow : Krystal Gabriel, she will likely be on my favourites often. The dance between soft and solid, courageous friend, and leading and loving with depth, power and grace. Henare O’Brien, always provokes a pause. Less about learning more stuff and more about leaning into our beautiful humanness. Gabrielle Brick, rebel mama, one of my dearest friends, and she posts raw chocolate almost daily so, thats an automatic follow. I recently came across Laura Hesp, offering up #realtalk on intersectional feminism, mental health, and just all around inclusive love. Her stories are 👌, be ready to have your privilege pointed to.
Favourite product : Straight up, Jojoba oil has been rocking my socks this month. I love slicking it all over my skin after the shower. Scent free, I can add oils as I like and fun fact, its the closest oil to the skins natural sebum! It works beautifully for body massages. I’m also mildly obsessed with this facial roller and facial cupping. Watch for a video on these this month.
Oh, the sweet sound of a new month of favs.
