It’s officially October and with it comes my October Spooks! While none of these bloggers are particularly spooky, I couldn’t help but refer to them as my little ghosties for the month. And yes, for the first time ever we have not five, not six but seven writers for you to behold. I’m also not opposed to continuing this trend for the rest of the year while I trial some upcoming advertising ideas for 2022.
On that note, can you believe we’re nearly onto a new year? Already? Where does the time go!?
was a big month for me. Not only was it my twenty-ninth birthday, but my husband also began working alongside me in the local convenience store. After leaving his gruelling job in the city, he’s taken up painting and I can’t wait to share them with you in a blog post and over on my Instagram. How was your September? Did anything fascinating happen or has it just been the same month, the same routine?
Meet my October Spooks!

The Grumpy Olive is a wonderful blog discussing all things from lifestyle to vacations to the latest book reviews. It was started by Simona, and she was later joined by her sisters, Fred and Christina. It’s not often you come across a blog held together by three dedicated siblings. It’s been so enjoyable reading their content over the years and I can’t express how much I love to see three family members working together so closely.
The team over at The Grumpy Olive are dedicated to bringing us wonderful content, some of which are linked below.
Andrea Hunt has been a vital part of my husband’s ongoing recovery from burnout. When I first met Andrea, he was going through the motions of a tiring, time-consuming and mentally draining workplace. I was feeling the impacts at home and often feared him coming home because it pained me to see him like that. Andrea not only offered a listening ear but took me through EFT and the benefits that come with it. EFT became a frequent in our lives and Andrea’s advice continues to be of benefit to us.
If you’re interested in EFT or life coaching services in the comfort of your own home, look no further than Andrea! She’s a certified transformational life coach and a member of the International Coaching Federation. Andrea is also qualified in Level 2 EFT Tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique) and a member of AEFTP (Association of Emotional Freedom Technique Professionals). She’s currently working towards her EFT Masters Level 3 Certification.
Here are a few of Andrea’s top picks from her blog.
- 9 Ways to identify & tackle your fears.
- 3 Ways to find and carry out your purpose.
- What is EFT tapping?
** It’s important to note that Andrea does not treat trauma and serious psychological issues. Her focus is on helping people manage their stress and anxiety, limiting beliefs, and re-framing and clearing negative emotions on specific information. Please be mindful of this when going into your session.
My fourth October Spook is The UK Beauty Room, the creation of Olivia. This easily navigated and well-documented site contains all you need to know about looking after your skin and hair. We all go the extra mile to keep our bodies feeling healthy and happy. So why not apply that to your skin and hair too? Olivia is a big believer in Indian and Ayurvedic practices in regards to skin and hair care. That means she avoids the use of dangerous and hard waring chemicals. Instead, she suggests natural ingredients and herbs!
“I’ve created an entire hair care routine using this formula and it’s completely transformed the health of my hair.”
If you’re interested in learning more (I know I am), then be sure to check out UK Beauty Room. You can even download her eBook all about Ayurvedic hair care which will not only help you but transform your hair health.

The Plain Simple Life is a blog created and run by Vourneen. She’s a self-confessed minimalist, professional declutterer and organiser. What’s that all mean you ask? Well, Vourneen helps her readers to regain control over their own homes and, ultimately, their lives. She helps switch your mindset into a more positive one, allowing you to make room for decluttering and living a more simple, organised life. Personally speaking, Vaurneen’s blogs have helped me to let go of some of the clutter within my own home, and have even spurred me to make use of old, disused materials found around my house.
