April 2018 Bullet Journal Set Up

Hi Friends, I wanted to share with you my newest obsession: bullet journaling.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about then you're in for a treat, and if you do know, then you're going to enjoy this week's video. Bullet journaling is a unique way of journaling and planning your day--and goals, in a user-friendly manner. Meaning, each person designs their planner according to their specific needs.

I personally love it for that very reason. For years I tried using traditional planners and they simply didn't work for me. When I discovered this method in October, I was more than intrigued, however, I kept testing it out with my old journal and didn't jump into buying yet another journal until I was absolutely sure that I was going to put this one to use. 

The following video is the result of me, finally jumping in and buying my first bullet journal and setting it up for April 2018. Enjoy!

But before you go, I want to remind you that my non-fiction book #Believe Dammit: 10 Principles for Attracting and Creating the Life you Crave is the perfect place to start if you want to create a life you love. If you're just starting out with the law of attraction, then this book is for you. I break down the foundations needed to create long-lasting change, which includes visualizing, eliminating negativity, powerful manifesting techniques and much more. If you're tired of wanting but never getting, then don't wait another minute, get your copy today and start living the life you came to live.

Until Next Time!

Hi everyone, in today's video I share the way I create my monthly vision book.

Now, I'm able to carry my vision book with me and look at it as often as I want, which helps me manifest my goals quicker because they're always at the forefront of my mind.

Check out how it turned out.

Juicing for Writers

Have you ever needed to finish a project ASAP? A project that you're very passionate about but somehow you don't have the clarity nor the energy needed to complete it? If you're with me, then I've got an easy fix for you. 

Said project, for me, was finishing my novel so that I could get it in the hands of my Beta Readers. With the urgency to complete my novel this year, I decided to do a little research on how to organically get some energy. What I found was green juicing. These past two weeks I replaced my breakfast with a green juice and as result, I had increased energy which helped me complete the editing of my 2nd draft. 

I wanted to share this information with my readers in case you're in need of a little boost. The reason green juicing works for increasing energy is because of chlorophyll, which is the green pigment in the plants; which helps to bring oxygen to the blood creating an increase in brain function. 

If you're more visual you can check out the video here, but then come on back for the recipes. 

Like I said in the video, this first recipe is not my own and found it on the net, however, this same recipe was found over and over again throughout many different articles regarding the benefits of juicing, and so I thought this one must really work,

Article from Shape.com

Ingredients:
1 large cucumber
8 stalks celery
1 handful kale
1 handful spinach
1 handful parsley
1/4 lemon (with rind if organic)
1-inch piece ginger

Plus, I added about a cup of water.

The 2nd recipe is the one I used to help me to finish my novel. It's our own recipe and it is DELICIOUS!

1 one ripe banana

5 chunks of frozen pineapple

5 chunks of frozen mango

1 handful of spinach

8 oz of apple juice (make sure your apple juice only has "apples" as the ingredient, you don't want to add unnecessary ingredients, like added sugars) 

There you have it. If you try these recipes and they help you get your project completed, or in any other way, leave me a comment below. If you have other recipes you want to share I would love to hear from you.

Until Next Time! 

 

 

Unique Wooden Watches for Her

I spent most of the weekend writing and editing my new novel. I've got a lot of work ahead of me if I want to get through the beta reader and professional editing phase in the first part of the year. 

Anyhoo, as many of you know, writing is not the only item on my daily to-do-list, my list usually also consists of creating content for YouTube, creating e-courses, and product development for my entrepreneurial endeavors. To this list, I've added partnering up with brands I believe in and love. So, when I was approached by JORD to be part of a campaign for their collection, I immediately jumped into action and researched their brand to see if it was something I wanted to be part of. I'm happy to say the answer was YES.

This past weekend I received this unique wooden watch and it hasn't left my hand.

Folks, this is no ordinary watch, which is the reason I fell in love with it.  This is the lightest and most comfortable watch I've ever worn--and wait for it--the band is made out of wood. The watch I'm wearing in the picture is the Hyde Series and is my favorite from the collection for its unique color (ebony & iron) size and the elegant wristband.  I've never worn a watch with a large face before and I was happy to see that it didn't seem too large on my small wrist. 

If you're like me and you've got to get your hands on a watch like this, then I've got a treat for you.  JORD has been kind enough to provide my readers with a special offer. One lucky winner will win a $100 gift code to use on the JORD site. But if you don't win, don't worry, everyone who enters will receive a 10% discount code to redeem once the contest is over. Contest dates are 2/27/2018 to 4/1/2018.

What I Regret About My Debut Novel (Collab with Mandi Lynn)

As a new author, one makes many mistakes; and though I'm pretty comfortable with the idea that nothing is perfect, I'm not blind to improvements that could be made to better a piece of work. This is how I feel about my debut novel, More Than Words Can Say. I love the story, but this book was written nearly 10 years ago, at a time when I knew very little about writing. Since then, I've gone to college, received my degree in English--with a specialty in creative writing and I've learned a lot. That's not to say that I don't recognize the good, in the bad. 

In today's video, I take you down memory lane and share with you how my debut novel was inspired by events from my own life. 

Now, 10-years later, I'm not only celebrating that book, but also my first nonfiction book which I released in 2017. if you want to start aligning with your own purpose, I would love for you to check out my book #Believe Dammit: 10 Principles for Attracting and Creating the Life You Crave. It's a perfect place to start considering your thoughts and the way you live your life.

If you haven’t done so already, I would love for you to follow me on Twitter and Instagram and to like my Facebook page. Through my social sites, I share daily inspiration and motivation on writing and wellbeing.

My Morning Routine for Creating Habits | 2018

I believe one of the best ways to change one's life, is through habit. Oftentimes, we think of "habits" in a negative way. However, good habits can be life-changing. Good habits can be the only thing you need to drastically transform your life. But healthy habits, the ones that you can use for good, don't just happen, you have to create them.

One useful tool I use to create habits is routines. Creating a routine that I can commit to each day, with the end goal clearly defined, is how I create healthy habits. For example, it was important for me to meditate, to exercise, to visualize and to show gratitude for all that I have. Though I wanted to do these things, I found it hard to come around to actually doing them. Well, I decided to create a routine for these things, and I would commit to the routine until they became a habit, enter morning routine. 

In today's video, I share with you my morning routine which I've been doing since the start of the new year. 

I use the power of accountability as motivation, and by this, I mean that since January 1st, 2018 I've been sharing my journey on my Instagram stories. This helps keep me on track and it's another routine I committed to.

Click below to see how I'm not only designing how my days start, but I'm also designing my life via visualization and daily planning. 

If you want to start aligning with your own purpose, I would love for you to check out my book #Believe Dammit: 10 Principles for Attracting and Creating the Life You Crave. It's a perfect place to start considering your thoughts and the way you live your life.
