I've finally put my last nail into the 2015 coffin and really embracing the new look and feel of 2016. It's like driving a new car. It smells good, feels good and everything about it excites me. It's fresh and full of possibility!
If you haven't done so already I highly recommend that you sit down and take some time to create a vision of what you want this year to look like.
A vision is an integral part of every company. It's a means of communicating company values and goals to every staff member so that everybody understands and sees the road ahead of them. Having a vision will give you a clear focus, and can stop you heading in the wrong direction.
Why should companies have all the fun? Setting a vision for yourself is a powerful way to manifest your ideal life. You can't hit a target you can't see right?
Human beings are wired to thrive with clear goals ahead of them. When we see something in front of us that we desire our body releases a little bit of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps control the brain's reward and pleasure centers. The closer you get to that object of your desire, the more dopamine your body releases until you get there. This was created for our own survival so that we would go the distance in the hunt of food.
We can use this wiring to achieve our deepest and wildest desires. This is where a Vision Board can really help and be the vision of an ideal life that you desire.
What is a vision board you say? A vision board is typically a collection of beautiful, feeling evoking images, words, or objects that represent what you want to be and do with your life. It's an ever evolving visual tool that is uniquely you.
Start by writing down what you want this vision board to accomplish. What do you need to remember most in your life? Look at all aspects of your life and where you feel you are mostly lacking and need that gentle nudge to remind you of where you want to be. This could include:

Find great images, keepsakes, and quotes that reflect all of your desires for 2016 and beyond. Dig out some magazines or head to Pinterest or other blogs to start finding visual reminders of the above desires. Surrounding yourself with reminders of what you love in this world will be your sunlight on cloudy days.
Make it beautiful. Make your vision board visually appealing with embellishments such as ribbon, washi tape, and beautiful quotes. When your life to-do list looks beautiful, you'll be more inclined to take care of everything on it.
Make it personal. Your vision board should include what you're naturally drawn to, not what you think you should be drawn. Use colours and images that make you feel great.
Hang it up where you will see it, everyday. The whole purpose of this exercise is to create a vision to strive for so be proud of your creation and put it somewhere where you can see it.
Have fun. Remember this process needs to be fun! Be playful, daring, and connect to you deepest and wildest desires.
If you're completely stuck why not get a little starter kit like the Wellineux Vision Board kit. This little package has inspiring words, notice board pins and pegs to help tie the whole thing together.

There's a little saying I like to go by, if you can't tone it, tan it! I won't lie, I'm quite partial to sporting a year round tan. There is something about having that sun-kissed glow that makes you feel and look a little leaner, and dare I say a tad sexier. The good news is that with all the amazing advancements in natural skin care products, you can get that glow without worrying about nasty toxins, sun damaged skin or looking like an Oompa Loompa. Here is my pick of the best natural tanning essentials to get your through this winter and beyond!
