Manifesting/Vision Boarding 2019

Moving back to Vermont last year was a pivotal moment in my life. One day in October of 2017 I was in my apartment in North Carolina and I was at my breaking point. I knew I had two roads to pick from: stay and continue on with my path or move back to Vermont. Staying was the easy choice and far less complicated but would leave me feeling unfulfilled and miserable, while leaving was the hard choice, the choice that came with having to move my entire life 784 miles East and to a lot of unknowns. It was a cross roads you could say, truly a moment that decided my future and thankfully a year later I am living life with no regrets and I am beyond pleased with the here and now.

With this all being said the last year really put in to perspective what I want to get out of life and the things that made me happy, sad, overwhelmed, overjoyed and so on. I haven’t often prioritized what it is that I truly want and what makes me feel alive so this year I decided I would do just that. A friend of mine introduced me to a course about Manifesting my 2019 as well as making a vision board to use as a reminder of what you want your upcoming year to look like. Completing the course as well as my vision board has helped me to reflect on myself and has set me up to make sure I am living life and not letting it pass me by. Below I have detailed out the steps I took to make sure my 2019 is my best year yet and that I am truly living for myself!

#essiebuff DIY – A Blue & White Christmas

For years I have wanted to go with a blue and white theme when decorating for the holidays and this year was finally the year that I took the plunge and went with it! After we chopped down our tree and got it home and set up I just couldn’t wait to finally put up the decorations. For the past few months I have been accumulating blue, white, and silver items wherever I went knowing that I was sticking with this theme and going full throttle ahead with no stopping. Take a peek below to see how my tree looks all decorated and for a DIY on the wreath that I made to match!

Books books & more books

As most of you who follow my blog know my true love is nail polish, however another one of my loves and something else that you can find me doing in my spare time (when I’m not deciding my next polish color) is reading. Reading has been something that I have loved to do since a young age and as I’ve gotten older the love has only grown stronger. Below are some of the books I have read over the past few months whether they be picks from my work Book Club or books that I have read on my own! I hope that you enjoy this post just as much as I enjoyed writing it!

O Christmas Tree

Growing up in Vermont means that chopping down your own tree down for Christmas just becomes second nature. This year we went to Whites Tree Farm up in Jericho to chop down the most beautiful tree that I have ever seen! Whites is the cutest little tree farm and I just love going there because not only do they have some of the best trees around but they also have wreaths, bows, maple treats, locally made ornaments, and of course hot chocolate! Below are some photos of my tree excursion this year and of the buffalo plaid nails that I wore while we chopped down our tree!
