Robin Hoods Turbans – Turbans are not only super chic, trendy & adorable – they also have deep meaning in the Kundalini yoga tradition. Turbans are useful for holding energy in, and for creating a meditative focus at the third eye point (brow point). Covering the head stabilizes the cerebral matter and the 26 parts of the brain, which are interlocked with the neurological system and electromagnetic field. Covering the head creates a focus of the functional circuit of the hemispheres of the brain, and tunes the neurological system.

So now you probably want a turban more than ever right? Well now is the time to buy one for you & everyone on your list since Robin Hoods is offering (exclusively to Wellness Wonderland readers) at 20% discount when you use the code SPREADTHELOVE – so cool right?

iloveme JeWELLry line – If The Wellness Wonderland made jewelry, this is what it would be. Arielle of Be Well With Arielle (a past WWRadio guest & mentor of mine) makes the most beautiful hand made jewelry that I love so much! I’m hoping a gold one pops up unter the tree, her designs are beautiful and her packaging and attention to detail and love in every order is spectacular, you will feel her love every time you wear her creations. Even Gabrielle Bernstein is a huge fan!  Arielle is the sweetest so she’s offering us Wellness Wonderland inhabitants a deal: $20 off all orders when you use the discount code ‘ilovewellnesswonderland’ – how nice right? (hurry it expires 1/1/14)

Anthropologie Bowls – I believe that presentation of food is as important as what you’re eating. While not everything I eat is food magazine beautiful, I try to make every eating experience pleasant and since digestion begins with our eyes we might as well enjoy what we’re looking at and that includes what the food is served in. I’m silly & literally eat everything out of a bowl – smoothies, salads, nuts, you name it, I put it in a bowl while my plates collect dust.

Macaroon Box – I found one of these at a little local boutique & I adore it. It’s adorable and ideal for carrying supplements when I’m traveling or just on the go.

Cyber Monday Non-Meanderings | Presenting 2013 WWGift Guides

day0-video

You may recall my 2012 holiday gift guides –well, they’re back by popular demand and better than ever! I truly believe the holiday season can be a more pleasant experience for all when the focus is on “what can I give,” rather than, “What can I get.” However, the fact is that in our culture, gift giving is part of the tradition of the season and it’s a lovely one. But remember to take care of yourself this holiday season because you can’t give what you don’t already have.

Keep your focus on giving not just material presents but your time, love, effort, and support. Make this quote from Erin Stutland your mantra for the season & beyond:

“I focus on giving because what I give is what I get.”

While giving doesn’t mean exclusively presents, they are part of the season. When it comes to gift buying and receiving it is always best when it is something thoughtful that the person has really been wanting or you just know they would adore- something that you look at and immediately think of them and you must buy it for them regardless of the occasion. Those gifts are the best & the most fun to give, but what about those people you’re just stumped about? You don’t have a clue what to buy them, but you want to refrain from just buying them ‘junk,’ and that’s where a magical little card called an Amazon gift card comes in. And while yes, that may not be the most personal gift under the tree, at least it is something you know they will use rather than toss or regift.

So to help you out finding the ideal thoughtful gift for the Wellness Wonderland inhabitant on your list, I reveal to you the 2013 WELLNESS {WINTER} WONDERLAND GIFT GUIDES.

This week expect 5 unique gift guides to target the following people on your list: 

  • Monday: The Movers & Shakers
  • Tuesday: The Pretty Thing Lovers
  • Wednesday: The Meditating Yogi
  • Thursday: The Person Who’s Always Cold
  • Friday: The Bookworm

I can’t wait for you to see all the fun high-vibe presents I’ve chosen! Happy Holidays! Enjoy gift guide week! xxoo
