Who else wants a Vision Board?

Hey Guys,

I am so happy to share with you, my first vision board of 2017.

I put off doing my first vision board because I knew that we were going to dedicating a few hours of work time to make one late in January, so why not wait and do it on company time LOL! We had a “vision board party”, my entire team and I came together and had an amazing time designing our vision boards based on goals that we set for ourselves for the New Year. We had such a great time chatting and helping each other go through all of the magazines, the room was full of laughter, crafting, and candy all of my favorite things.

I am a HUGE advocate for vision boards, I have created at least one a year for the last 10 or so years and every year at least one of my goals manifests in my life and it is the most amazing feeling.
I strongly recommend doing your own vision board and place it somewhere that you will see it every single day.

Let me share with you why having a vision board is so important to me, a vision board is an amazing tool that you can use to help you visualize your dreams and goals. Because visualization is one of the most powerful exercises that you can do for your mind, having a vision board helps you to concentrate your thoughts on the goals that you have set for yourself with intent and images you are able to see and visualize your life and goals clearly.

Your mind is so amazing, if you concentrate on what you want in life you will get it. So if you focus on positive things you will attract positivity in your life. But if you focus on negative things you will get more negativity in your life. So focusing your mind on your goals should have a positive feeling behind them and seeing them in front of you every day will associate positivity and allow for them to start manifesting in your life.

“WHAT WE THINK, WE BECOME.” – Buddha

But don’t just think these things will poof and manifest out of thin air, there are some actions that you will need to take. Trust me I wish my vision board could magically bring me all of the amazing things but that is not how it works. You will need to take small steps to help you reach your goals. If you want me to go into more detail on how this works, please leave me a comment below.

Hopefully, me sharing my vision board with you will inspire you to create your own. If you want a step by step guide on how to create your own vision board, please make sure you are receiving my newsletters.

I hope your year is off to a great start, I know mine is.

I know you are going to love these chocolate goodies. This is the perfect recipe if you want to “fake it, til you make it”, and  your friends and family will be blown away. But little do they know these little balls of deliciousness are semi-homemade.

Here is my recipe for easy brownie truffles!

brownie-truffle-supplies

Here is what you will need to make these amazing truffles.

 

1 Box of brownie mix of your choice

1 Bag of chocolate melts

Directions:

  1. Follow the instructions on the back of the brownie mix
    • Note: use milk in place of water and add a splash of Vanilla extract
  2. Let the brownies cool completely
  3. Once cooled cut the edges of the brownies off (feel free to eat and enjoy)
  4. Use your hands or a fork to crumble the large square of brownie
  5. Take about half a handful or a tablespoon of the brownie crumble into the palm of your hand and roll it into a ball, and then place it on a piece of parchment paper.
  6. Once you have all of the balls rolled out place them in the freezer to chill for about 30 minutes.
  7. Once chilled remove from freezer
  8. Melt your chocolate melts based on the instructions of the package
  9. Dip the balls into the chocolate until evenly coated all around
  10. Place on parchment paper or a cooling rack for the chocolate to dry.
  11. Chill in your refrigerator for about an hour and enjoy!

If you would like to decorate them, you can choose any toppings of your choice. But make sure to add your toppings will the chocolate is still melted and not hard. Some of my favorite toppings to use are finely chopped walnuts, sprinkles, white chocolate drizzled on top, or caramel drizzled on top.

If you make these brownie truffles, be sure to post a photo on your social media and tag me in your post.

Enjoy!

Quick and Easy Recipes for November: Chocolate Croissants

If you haven’t already checked out last week’s recipe for Quick and Easy Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes, then you don’t know what you’re missing.

For this week I am going to share with you one of the easiest and most versatile recipes ever. This is the perfect recipe if you are in a pinch and short on time. Not to mention they taste great! This recipe only consists of 2 ingredients and maybe 5 minutes to prep and 12 minutes to bake.

New recipes every Thursday in November!

Here is my recipe for quick and easy chocolate croissants!

20161109_170152_picmonkeyed

Here is what you will need for these delicious Chocolate Croissants:

1-2 Cans of Pillsbury Crescents

1 Bag of Chocolate Chips of your choice (I prefer the Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips)

20161109_165716-2

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Unroll the dough and separate each triangle
  3. Add a teaspoon or more of Chocolate Chips to the larger end of the triangle
  4. Roll the dough gently
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown
  6. Let them cool completely and sprinkle with powdered sugar for that extra homemade touch

If you are feeling a little more adventurous try using apple pie filling instead of chocolate chips with a little dash of caramel syrup to make Caramel Apple Pie Croissants. Then top with a little powder sugar and drizzle with caramel. These are so delicious.

If you make these chocolate croissants, be sure to post a photo on your social media and tag me in it.

Enjoy!
