How to; create your dream vision board

It's time to get real. & I mean real. Dream life creation, business dreaming, life designing kinda real. I'm talkin' about ...

Vision Boards. Amazing, soulfully creative, goal leaping Vision board. Your hearts desires laid out in pretty pictures and beautiful affirmations. 

Have you ever looked at the successful people in life and tried to work out how they are where they are so you can do the same? I do. Frequently. I read books, I work on myself and I try to find the common threads  so I can emmulate that in my own life. Over the years however I feel I have found a few things that I truly believe I can credit people's success to. Their motivation, their drive, the way that things just happen for them ... and you want to know one of their secrets?? They all have a vision. A big, bright, happenin', rad vision. 

I set out, many years ago to put my dreams down in big bold pictures, colours and words and no matter what I went through, it was there. Reminding me, gently pushing at my subscionous to think positively, travel, surround myself with beautiful memories and people. 

Since then, my vision boards have grown. I set out yearly to do a new one but this year it's come off the vision board and up my wall. To me, having a phsyical 'thing' staring back at you every day is the very essence of dream creation and the most amazing and creative way to remind the universe - and yourself of course - every single day, of your WHY.

I want you to dream. To be inspired. To create your dream day, your dream life, to have a space you can be in that motivates  you to be the best YOU. 

You are going to create yourself the best vision board you could have dreamed possible. 

So let's get to it shall we gorgeous. 


+ A board (or a wall - whatever works for you) 
+ As many magazines as you can get your hands on (8+ is good, but just work with whatever you've got)
+ Scissors
+ Pins (or blue tack if it's a wall)
+ Pens, textas, paper 
+ Quote cards (if you've got them, I had some ah-ma-zing Inspiration cards from KikiK that I used) 
+ Photos that you love from previous travel / your partner / you resonate with.


Step One: 
Before you even begin you need to connect with your inner you. We are about to do some serious magic creation in the law of attraction. Your vision board is there to attract in to your life whatever your heart desires so you need to think about what it is exactly it is you want. Think about words that you connect with, that resonate with you. Dig deep, let go, and get real. We want to go to your source. You need to be in the most ideal creative mood to start so you open the flood gates of abundance and attraction. Think about how you'd feel with all of what you desire in your life. Success, love, happiness, health...

Step Two:
It's time to work out what you want on your board. It is your board and your board alone so it can be as messy or organised, full or empty as you like it. It is good however to have a defined goal in mind. Write on a piece of paper what will be going on your board. Things like what you want in your life when it comes to;  Travel, Career, Finance, Wellness, Love, Business, Spirituality, Family & Happiness. 

Step Three: 
Creating time! Now comes the fun part beautiful. It's time to go through magazines and rip out any words, pictures, sayings that connect with what you want. Words like "A life well lived", "Super Woman". Pictures of your dream house, bedroom, study, car ... whatever it is you're looking for. Use other sites like Pinterest, Tumblr, Google Images and any other site you love that dishes up words or pictures that align with your dream life. Use whatever sites or magazines or photos you have that you cherish (i.e a postcard or picture of your dream destination) until you have whatever it is you desire cut out and organised. Then put it all together!! Organise it on the table or floor before you start pinning or sticking it to the board or wall. Then once you love how it looks, assemble it as a final product. 

Step Four:
Display it where you are going to see it everyday at least a few times a day. I have put mine in my lady cave as I spend my mornings before work in there then my time after work in there but if you don't have a study area you spend a lot of time in, put it in your bathroom or kitchen or whereverrrr it is that you are going to see it most times of the day. You are about to start the powerful, extraordinary journey of law of attraction so you want to manifest the life you have just created on the board every day you awaken. 

Extra tips whilst you're creating

+ Let go of self doubt and don't hold back. Do not for a second in your creation stage let negative self talk
or doubt creep in. This is YOUR life, your DREAM LIFE and nothing can stop you from getting it. Dream BIG..if you're dreams don't scare you they're not big enough. You want that expensive car and beautiful house? Slap it on there hunny. You want to travel the world but have no savings? You'll get there with enough determination and planning trust me. Don't hold back when you're dreaming and scheming' - put everything your heart desires on there. 

Now go gorgeous .. DREAM BIG & INSPIRE YOURSELF. If you do create your own vision board I'd LOVE to see it (& you should share it as your declaration to the universe + start the law of attraction) ... take a pic of it and upload it to your Instagram and tag me at @lifesshinyprettythings 

Can't wait to see all of your dream lives in big, bright bold ways.



  1. I sooooo needed to read this today. I just bought a cork board recently and I have been wanting to do a vision board but I am a bit too embarrassed about some of the things I want because I think they are too out there....or day I say, dumb? Can I email you in regards to this?

    I need to not think about it and just go ahead. I have a stack of magazines that I saved up with folded pages to do this

    1. Steph!!! You should never ever be embarrassed by the things you want in life. Hun if you KNEW what was in my book of goals (its pages and pages long) .. No dream is dumb, they're sacred desires of your essence. You are more than welcome to email me hun.

      I feel like you need to hear this before you embark on your board...KNOW YOUR POWER lovely...I think your fear is not that your dreams are dumb, but that they'll give you the life of your dreams and I totally get why that is scary xx

      “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” - Marianne Williamson

  2. okay, I really loved this idea/DIY - great inspiration - love love love!
