Personal Development Books To Read

I did TERRIBLE with my reading goals last year. I don't think I read even5 books last year - oooh the shame of it all!

I really think by me not blogging and having someone (you) to hold me accountable for my reading goals - things really fell by the wayside.

This year I'm going to make up for it!
I have pre-planned to read AT LEAST 6 of these 8 PD books (on top of all the chicklit I want to read)

All of which I have picked for myself and ones that I have been wanting to read (all of last year).


I'm starting with The Four Agreements. I'm about 70% in to it now. It just makes SO much sense.
I'll do a blog post on it later so keep an eye out for that!

Also on my list:
- The Miracle Morning
-Daring Greatly
-The Happiness Project
-Get Over Your Damn Self
-Rising Strong
-You Are a Badass
-The Power of Now 

I hope to end 2017 a more developed person than I have started it to be!

Vision Board 2017 - SUCCESS!!!

Remember I told you I was going to go to a Vision Board Party in this Post?

Well I went and it was FANTASTIC!

here's my board so far:


I put everything with Push Pins instead of gluing things down so I can change or board at any time. 


It was a great together with these fantastic ladies.
Thanks to Maria for hosting!

Caron Cake Tunisian Crochet Blanket

Caron Cakes were all the rage a few months ago -- are they still a popular thing?

I picked up about 5 skeins of the Faerie Cake and have been slowly adding rows to this beauty:


My original idea was to do a Trip Around The World Blanket but as I got a few rounds into I decided -- It was UGLY! 

Look see for yourself:


Not cute right?

So I unraveled and started again:

And every time I get a spare moment I do a few loops whenever I can.


It is a really enjoyable blanket to make. I know I'll be sad whenever this project comes to an end.

Hanging Herb Garden

Another bright idea brought to you by: Pinterest 😼

I have been dying over this pin for ages so I finally made it to Ikea to make my own Hanging Herb Garden:


Great for a small spaces and now I have access to fresh herbs every day! 

Here's what you need to make your own:

Fintorp Rail from Ikea
Fintorp Hooks ... also from Ikea
Fintorp Utensil Holder...from ... you guessed it - Ikea! 

I bought the herbs from the grocery store - your store probably has them to you just have to keep an eye out for them. Usually in the fresh food area with the veggies.  I picked: mint, thyme, rosemary, basil, parsley and going to add cilantro soon.

Pick a sunny area (close to the window) get your leveler out (or eyeball it like I did), screwdriver/drill and boom - in less than 10 minutes you have a quick and cute wall garden!

Granny Scrapghan: Tah-Dah!!


Love the idea of scrapghans!

Good way to use up your stash (or if you are me SOME of your stash) and have a beautiful blanket without spending any additional $$$.







and who doesn't love a good granny?

Vision Board Party!

Hello!

I've been invited to a vision board party on Friday.

I'm super excited! I've never put one together for myself but I've heard it's a great way to manifest what you want from the universe. 

So far I've picked out the board itself (a cute cork board with frame):
Purchased at Michael's with coupon of course! 
But now I need to start gathering ideas as to what I need to put on my board...aka what do I want to manifest in 2017?!?! 

Some of my ideas so far:





Have you made a vision board before?
Any suggestions/ideas/comments?

Never Miss a Monday!

One of my new mottos for working out: Never Miss a Monday!


Starting the week off a hot sweaty mess - who doesn't want that?! 

my serious face after finishing Plyo Fix Extreme. 

Before my workout had to start with this bad news:
No more Energize. Very Very sad story.

there is a good chance I'll lick this container clean tomorrow AM for the last little bits.
Considering 21 Day Fix Extreme? Let me know! We can be accountability partners :)
Challenge Pack available here (awesome deal)



Do you have a workout motto?
Share with me!
