You might know about me that I really really don't like the cold. I think I could totally live in a warm tropical climate 365 days a year, it's where my soul lights up! I currently live in the gorgeous but constantly weather shifting climate of Colorado though - and what it's made me realize over the few years is that my self care habits MUST adjust when it is chilly out, if I want to show up in the same way I do when I feel great in warm weather.
I put together a list of Self Care For A Chilly Morning - 11 Ways That I Stay Warm + Cozy it's cold outside! Check it out below, I hope that it helps YOU to warm up if you're a warm weather lover like me!

CRYSTAL OF THE WEEK | MOONRISE CRYSTAL BOUTIQUE
SMOKEY QUARTZ | manifestation + grounding
I just added a few rare and completely gorgeous smokey quartz wands to the MoonRise Boutique. Some of them are phantoms, some semi-raw and some matte in texture. They are all unique and I just love them.
So I thought it was fitting to feature Smokey Quartz, one of my favorite crystals to use for gounding this week!
I love to use in my intention practices for :
calming anxiety clarity + presence banishing negative energy absorbing bad vibrations rational thoughts increasing attention grounding + stabilizing
Smokey Quartz benefits the Root Chakra.
You can use this super grounding stone in your meditation practice, to encourage positive communication in group situations, or around your home to spark organization.
From the earth, to you : my smokey quartz collection is mined in Brazil
use these journal prompts this week if they inspire you
What does comfort mean to me? Does it vary throughout different times of the year, month or day?
How does my mood change when I'm comfortable?
What self care methods can I put into place to help me remain comfortable during this season?
How does my own comfort trigger the thought of others who might not be comfortable or have the same advantages as I do? How can I help others to be comfortable?
I'm so excited to let you know that I recently partnered with Savvi. Savvi is a life style fitness brand that has spoken to me both in their ethics + philosophy and their incredible line of active wear (literally my favorite!) for quite some time now. They represent building your life by design.

The new moon represents deep feminine wisdom. Engaging regularly with the moon cycles is a powerful way to become intimately connected with the phases of birth, death and rebirth.
In our lives, we too are constantly moving through these cycles, seasons and changes. Connecting to and working with the moon as she cycles, creates a life of deeper meaning and more authentic connection as we are able to live a life with more awareness and intention.
Join Lisa Reeder (Wild Souls Yoga) & Jenny White (MoonRise Self Care) in a women's circle as we practice grounding techniques, breath work and development of our intuition. We will share space with each other to receive, connect and create.
ps - I'm teaching yin directly after our New Moon Circle - it's the most incredible combo, please join for both!
