Letter from the Editor-in-Chief: Hello October

***Rachel Khoo would like to thank all the inspiring people who helped make the Khoollect studio a hive of creativity. Although the Khoollect studio’s doors have now closed, you can keep up with Rachel’s newest adventures on RachelKhoo.com and on Rachel’s Instagram and Facebook pages – and, continue to enjoy the Khoollect website’s stories and recipes, which will remain available.***


Ahhhh October a month where I pull out all my wooly tights from the back of the wardrobe. They will then cloak my legs in constant darkness for the next six months or more. ‘Tis the season for kicking leaves in the park, wrapping up in a few layers and embracing the on-coming cold and dark months (I know one person who is thoroughly looking forward to this).

If the idea of completely hibernating has you heading straight in the opposite direction, namely outdoors, then we’ve got a few ideas of what you could get up to.

Otherwise it’s the indoor pursuits that enlighten the mind on Khoollect’s agenda this month. Nothing too heavy, mind you. We’re never ones to take ourselves too seriously at Khoollect HQ. (Here’s a prime example from me – the team thoroughly enjoyed putting toilet paper in my hair).

From starting your own book club (a cultural cover-up for an excuse to have a glass of wine and catch up with friends ;-)), to finding inspiration on Instagram, to listening to the radio in your comfiest chair, there’s plenty to enjoy indoors.

If you enjoyed last month’s playlist (merci bucket to everyone in the forum who suggested some dance-busting tunes), then don’t forget to check out this month’s Deezer giveaway. Tell us your favourite cult-movie soundtrack classics for your chance to win, and we’ll put the top tracks on our movie playlist too. We’ll be sharing the playlist with you at the end of the month.

Curling up on the sofa to plough through a bunch of classic movies or a good book requires the perfect edible accompaniment. I don’t think anything could be more fitting than a bowl of  creamy rice pudding. Do you?

Until next time, we always love hearing from you: whether it’s through our social media channels, forum, on the website or via some old-skool snail mail. So get in touch!
