TLS #91: August Favorites & Free Intention Setting Training


To kick off September, I’ve got two new things for you!

1. A new Lively Show sharing my favorite things from August.

“Monthly favorites” are popular episodes on many YouTube channels, and they are now my favorite videos to watch.

In today’s mini edition of The Lively Show, I’m experimenting with this type of episode on the podcast! I’m sharing all the things I loved eating, watching, reading, etc. this August.

2. Free Values-based intention setting workshops!


To celebrate the end of The Lively Show Summer Series and the upcoming Life With Intention Online opening, I’m dedicating this September to free live online workshops to help you set Values-Based Intentions for your life.

    Love that you’re in my favorite state! Ann Arbor is so lovely!

    1. Jess Lively

      Agreed! It’s good to be back in the mitten after almost a decade away. It’s wonderful to hear you love Michigan, too. : )

      1. Alyssa Thomas

        I’m a lifelong Kalamazoo resident and highly advocate for living here. It’s wonderful (even though the winters can be a challenge)!

        1. Jess Lively

          Awesome! Kalamazoo is awesome. And I agree, I’m not too thrilled about midwest winters again (I’m planning some trips this winter to help with that. ; )).

    Jess, Vivianna Does Makeup and Mimi Ikonn are my fave YouTubers right now as well. I can’t get enough! Thanks so much for the freebie intention sessions!

    1. Jess Lively

      I hear you! I just watched Mimi’s video on negativity (and rewatched the packing one) so good!! : )

      PS- Anna said she’d come on the show this fall!!!

      1. Kate Smith

        Can’t wait to hear what Anna has to say!

          1. Kate Smith

            Off the top of my head, I am curious about how she balances her personal life with her “public” personal life as a blogger/vlogger. This is a question I have for many of your blogger guests (and you!) but imagine it might be even more challenging when Anna is publishing weekly vlogs. Thanks for asking!

          2. Jess Lively

            Thank you, that’s a great question!!

  3. Brittany

    So fun 🙂 Love this little peek into your favourites!

    If you love Hercule Poirot, I believe there’s a Miss Marple series on Netflix too – so good!

    And ps, just saw the link for your new book in the sidebar – ahh so exciting!! Hope all the work for it is going well 🙂 xo

    1. Jess Lively

      Thanks for the suggestion! I checked out one or two Maple shows a while back but wasn’t terribly impressed by the episodes I caught. I might have to give it another go though, once “Murder, She Wrote” ends. I have to say, “Murder, She Wrote” had some iffy episodes in the beginning too, so Marple likely gets into it’s groove later in the series.

  4. Jess Lively

    No worries, Julie! For those who can’t make the live workshops I have a mini series I’ll share later this month. Stay tuned for details on that in the weeks to come. : )
