This whole month lasted about as long as a box of doughnuts in a depressed office. There were times I honestly thought it was August. Or times I heard people start talking about Christmas and I was like..."Woah. What now?". But also "Please stop talking" because it's too soon. You may discuss Christmas in my presence beginning the day after Thanksgiving. Right now my life is laser focused on the Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo in Nashville. Be sure to follow along on Instagram and Snapchat (@CarleneRD) to see parts of my speaking session on personal branding and the release of some BIG news. I can't wait to show you!!!

But in the mean time let's talk about this awesome feature from yesterday. Mind Body Green was kind enough to feature me as one of "15 People Who Will Inspire You To Drop Everything and Pursue Your Passion".  Thank you, thank you, thank you! 

For my September Favorites YouTube video I picked 9 things that I am just all about right now. We've got the pre-requisite Netflix suggestion, two YouTube channels you need to subscribe to, a handful of tried and true cosmetic things and some kitchen/food prop gear I bought. 

Watch the video on YouTube or below

  • SITTNING Ikea products : The perfect blend between modern and traditional fall. Still dying to get my hands on the plates. 

  • Black Magic Petunias: My new go-to porch plant. I'm also apparently Morticia Addams. 

  • Vince Camuto Booties: The greatest fall fashion purchase. EVER. These are for you if you hate the hipster booties. Get them here. 

  • Magic Mud Charcoal: Teeth Whitening : Buy it, whiten your teeth and remove the tacky packaging.  buy it here

  • Notes App: HOW DID I NOT KNOW? My must do technology hack. 

  • Loreal True Match Mineral Powder: For those of you who also have under eye circles. This is my go-to right now. 

  • The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: It's a little goofy and one or two episodes are very obviously sub-par but overall, your must-watch on Netflix for a mood boost! 

  • Chef John of Food Wishes: My current favorite food channel. He is the greatest. 

  • BatALash Beauty: Samantha: This girl is a bad ass, straight talker. One of my ultimate favorite beauty channels. 


What are your September favorites? 

Dietitian Nutritionist. My husband Chris and I create food and beverage photos, videos, stopmotions and recipes. And they're really cool.
