two thousand and fourteen :)

i hope you all had fabulous new year's celebrations - i spent mine at home with my sister jennifer
we ate pizza, drake wine and had a "suits" marathon. 
i had a great time and am now officially hooked on suits - thank you jennifer and netflix.

now, i'm not one for resolutions but i am a strong believer in writing down your goals. 
i read somewhere that those who write down their goals are more likely to achieve them.
i tried out that theory last year and successfully crossed off the vast majority of them off my list. 
so, i'll definitely be doing that again this year. 

last week, i read an article about the importance of writing a personal manifesto.
a manifesto is basically a declaration of ones values, beliefs and intentions. 
typically, you write it out and then post it somewhere where you'll see it often - your bathroom mirror or your phone's background.
however, this article stressed that manifestos are most powerful when presented to someone, as it then becomes a binding agreement between the writer and the universe. 

so, i present to you all my manifesto for 2014:

so, there you have it!
hopefully the universe reads my blog, haha.
but just in case, i printed my manifesto on some colorful cards to post around my house:

have any of you ever written out a personal manifesto?
if yes, i'd love to hear your experiences :)

happy new year, once again - cheers to 2014!



  1. I didn't know Suits was on Netflix. I'll have go check it out.

    Great manifesto! I need to do this!

  2. how adorable! i love that you printed them to be placed around your house. i have a friend who does that every year and then builds on it through scrapbooking.

    happy new year!

  4. Wow, I should try printing my goals out and putting them where I can see them everyday---I think I would definitely fulfill a lot more resolutions and goals if I did that. What a great set of quotes too, and I love how you included some common sense idioms.


  5. That's amazing! Having a hard print copy of your goals makes it a lot more easier to accomplish--it's weird but somehow it works!
    Love how you made it look so aesthetically pretty as well with your cool font choices :)
    Hope you have an amazing 2014 and you get to accomplish each one of your goals!

  6. Great idea! I have not written my manifesto yet, but you inspired me to do it too! :)

  7. This cool! Happy New Year!

  8. I love the manifesto idea. It's like a businesses "mission statement" only personal and for yourself. I may have to look into this. Typically I'm not a big resolution/goal maker, but you're right I'll forget about it, if I don't write it down. I had to catch up on your blog. I am so glad you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year <3

  9. I love your manifest. Looks really nice and it's so truely !

  10. That is a really good manifesto, I like the "stop comparing yourself to others" quote and I'll definitely have to drink more water too.

  11. gorgeous blog :)

  12. thanks for this motivation, have a wonderful year!!


  13. I also need to do mine! I think these kind of things can have such a strong impact on us if we pay attention to them! The idea of actually printing them and let them around the house, is really good! I must do this soon :)

  14. I have been meaning to write down my goals for the longest, and only did it when I started reading this post (thanks for the reminder/ motivation haha).I love how your manifesto is a combination of all the little quotes that speak to you. Best wishes for the upcoming year!
