I’m a big believer in inspiration boards – I wrote about them previously here. I really believe that they magically (ok…maybe through some subconscious positive thinking mechanism) allow your wishes to materialize in your life. This is the article that inspired me to create a vision board – I highly recommend you read it!
This was the vision board I created last year…since then, we’ve purchased a house – and I see elements of my vision board in my house (like the colour scheme in the picture under the yellow flower, and the gorgeous window seat near the pink flower). Some of it is my own application of what I want in my house…but some of it is the universe providing me with what my heart was looking for (I know…this is starting to sound New-Agey, right?).
Well, recently I’ve been feeling uninspired clothing and make-up wise….so I decided to create a LookBook/Inspiration board. I wondered it this would be a shallow and teeny-bopper-like thing to do, but the truth is, when I feel good about the way I present myself – I’m a happier person – so that makes it a worthwhile project for me.
Here’s what I came up with (click on pic above for a larger version)…lots of my favourite celebs – Halle Berry, Cameron Diaz, Eva Longoria, Mila Kunis and Rachel Bilson….and lots of my favourite looks – skinny jeans, over-sized scarves and luxe handbags! Hopefully this board will keep me motivated to take care of myself (skincare, healthy eating and exercise) and provide me with inspiration for fall/winter dressing.
I’m very blessed with where I am in life (family, surroundings, friends) but I do also want to focus on finding some new life-goals – so I’m going to be working on a non-appearance related vision board next. If you’re interested in creating a vision board – here are the basic steps (based on the Daily Mail article I linked above).
1) Get some magazines and flip through them – tearing out any images that appeal to you – don’t overthink them – just rip them out!
2) Arrange them on a corkboard
3) Place it somewhere that you will look at everyday
Do you believe in Vision Boards? Have you ever made one?
