"The crisp season has set in, sweaters are being brought out, lights up, and leaves are falling all around us, swirling the scent of pumpkin spice & rain in every direction we step. Tree's are painting ever lasting cozy images in our heads, mellow music is filling the cafe's, and warm beverages our mugs. " ~NaomiEdgell

October ๐”พ๐•๐•Š๐•‹ (promised) how to:

First, get out all of your GYST Supplies.

Mine:

~ Calendars
~ Markers
~ Pens
~ Dry Erase Board/ Calendar
~ Bullet Journal
~ Drawing paper
~ Phone

I start with

โ„‚๐•™๐• ๐•ฃ๐•–๐•ค.

For this GYST the chores I really needed to get done are those neglected from busy weeks with no GYST and time away from home: laundry, dusting, vacuum & sweep, dishes, all cabinet clean out!, down and dirty bathroom and bedroom deep clean (it's getting flue season & I hate being sick!), closet clean out & donate, clean earrings & brushes, tidy up.

This is where all of those utensils come handy!
FIRST UP is my Dry Erase calendar so I can have a pretty good over view. This is where I write down my planned out blogs, holidays, birthdays, workouts, trips, etc.
I use 6 basic colors for this:
Green= financial things
Blue= workouts
Pink= goal on days
Burgundy= Holidays, important days & blogs
Black= birthdays/ anniversaries
Orange= October month color, day color, trips

SECOND

Bullet Journal, how I do so..
Since it's October I make a new place for this month & fill it with my bucket list, to buy list, birthday present list, goals, diy list, & to reads. This part is pretty simple and less complicated than planning out days etc.

THIRD

Drawing paper?
In my Vision/ dream board I have a month countdown in the middle, so during this time I switch 9 (Sep.) to 10 (for Oct.)! Way more easy.

FOURTH

Phone! Ahh, I use this to set alarms.
My Alarm List & motivating titles :
6:00 a.m. - Coffee's on it's way!
7:00 a.m. - Wake up with a dream or go back to bed!
8:00 a.m. - Rise & Conquer
11:00 a.m. - PS: WATER
2:00 p.m. - Work on goals <3
5:00 p.m.- He's on his way (this is when my bf is on his way home to me <3 this is alarm stays set Mon. - Fri. then changed to 12 for Sat.)
9:00 p.m. - Jump on CLOUD 9

On the weekend alarms include: Sat. as mentioned above, a 4:00 p.m.Take me to church alarm & a 8:00 a.m. Sunday "You are fearfully and wonderfully made " church alarm <3)
SO MANY! I might need to cut that down lmao

I also use my phone to add reminders, grocery list, & set week workouts.

๐”น๐”ผ๐”ธ๐•Œ๐•‹๐• & ๐”น๐•†๐•†๐•‹๐•

For this part of the GYST I workout hard! So I know I really focused on it (that's the booty part) and then (for the beauty) I throw on a mask, hair mask, shave, lotion, self tanner, lip scrub, & teeth whitener.

Face Mask: "POWERFUL: Peel - off black mask" 30 min or until dry
then when it is off tone with mineral water then use Mary Kay moisturizer or coconut oil.
Hair Mask: Coconut oil, Mineral water, Olive oil, tea tree oil, cinnamon, hair lightener, biotin 30 min.
Self Tanner: Coffee soak/ spray or tea spray diy tanner (it works decent). 30 min. or until dry then do a second coat.
Lip Scrub: Coffee, & coconut oil , rinse after full scrub
Teeth Whitener: Hydrogen Peroxide, baking soda, & 3D whitener tooth past (I use the same for whitening my nails too.)

๐”พ๐”ผ๐•‹'๐”ผโ„ ๐”ป๐•†โ„•๐”ผ:

This is where I usually work on things for work, paper work, budgets, blogs (like now), work on bucket list or goals, studying , and sometimes even fun things like reading, writing in my journal, drawing, or working on my flexibility! You can also make this time you research things you want to learn, sign up for classes, pay bills, etc.

That was all for today! I hope you all enjoyed it and are having fun marking things off of those Fall Bucketlist! As always, I love you all from cover to back! See you on the next leaf of October Blogtober!
