My 5 Fall Favorites

on November 13, 2017 by Jami Balmet 3 comments

I started a monthly favorites feature on my YouTube channel this Summer. And let’s just say, I got behind πŸ˜‰ So instead of a monthly favorites for November, I’m gonna do my favorites for Fall!

You can watch the full video here, and then make sure to come over and subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss any new videos!

These are my five Fall favorites but I can’t wait to share them with you. 

The Lifegiving Table by Sally Clarkson

This is Sally’s latest book and I really loved it. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I really loved the ideas for table fellowship, hospitality, and ministering to your own family.  

I got the chance a few weeks ago to chat with Sally on my podcast all about this concept. You can listen in here: Hf #98: Cultivating a Lifegiving Family with Sally Clarkson

Roxanna’s Candles – Fall Scents

I have long been on the search for natural candles. My husband LOVES candles and likes them burning every single day. So a few years ago I began the search for a natural alternative. I tried several kinds that honestly just didn’t smell that good or didn’t last very long. 

Then a friend recommended Roxanna’s Candles…and I’ve been hooked ever since! Our FAVORITE fall scents are: Cinnamon Stick and Pumpkin Pie. For Christmas, we adore the Blue Spruce scent! 

Trim Healthy Table Cookbook

I’ve been a long time fan of Trim Healthy Mama and they just recently came out with their new cookbook, Trim Healthy Table. And it’s by far my favorite THM cookbook! There is a picture of almost every single recipe and we’ve made over a dozen recipes from it so far and have LOVED every single one.

If you are looking for a THM cookbook, THIS is the one I recommend! 

Fall Essential Oils from Plant Therapy

This was an investment I made last year and I am so glad I did because I’m still using them this year! After many years of research and using the two BIG oil companies out there, I finally switched to Plant Therapy and haven’t looked back. Time and again I have been impressed with these oils and how well they work. And NO, I don’t work with them in any capacity other than being a happy customer πŸ˜‰ 

Please note: It looks like they are now sold out of their Fall blends BUT their Christmas scents just hit the store. We have these as well and LOVE them!!! 

Project Life

My word for 2017 is CREATE My word for 2017 is CREATE. And a big part of that for me this year has been working on my kids baby albums starting with Magnolia who is 9 months old. It’s been SO fun! I finally decided to take the plunge and do Project Life albums for my kids and I’ve been so so happy with them. 

You can find discounts on places like Blitsy, Scrapbook.com, and any of your local craft stores. (hint hint: Use your 40-50% off coupons on it!) But funny enough, I found my starter kits on clearance for an amazing price on the Home Shopping Network (so keep your eyes out for good deals)!

  1. Love these videos!! My fall favorites are my creamy pumpkin pie tea, ginger tea and apple pie tea from Bulk Herb Store, and my essential oils that I diffuse as well! I add almond milk and a little raw honey to the pumpkin pie tea, and it seriously tastes like a piece of pumpkin pie without the guilt!

    Sounds a little strange, but I’m on the hunt for a good, natural laundry detergent, so I’d love to know what you use. Also, with the cold weather upon us, maybe you could show a favorite throw blanket, or even a favorite sweater/scarf/slippers you like?

    Thanks! πŸ™‚

    • Oh, forgot one! lol. I love Hilltop Designs natural soaps and body products. They are a Christian company based out of Michigan. Their products are handmade, handwrapped and absolutely wonderful. They recently had a pumpkin spice latte homemade goats milk soap that was amazing!!! And it’s so pretty!! All natural ingredients too. This month they have a cranberry orange soap, a holiday soap and a minty milk soap. They smell great and don’t dry out your skin. Their bath bombs, body butters and natural deodarant are some of the best I’ve used, and I love that they are nontoxic.

      AND they have awesome natural candles too!! Their fall one smells like an apple pie and the winter one smells like a Christmas tree in fresh snow. I love Roxanna’s candles too, but I have to say the Hilltop ones seem to burn cleaner, burn for just as long and they put out a lot of fragrance too! πŸ™‚ And they’re a bit cheaper. But yes, I will always love Roxanna’s candles too!
