Creating Your Shining Year – 2016

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

December is nearly upon us and that means it’s time to get your planner into gear for 2016! If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you will know how much of a fan I am of Leonie Dawson’s Shining Biz & Life Academy (formally known as Goddess Guidebook) and the totally wonderful workbooks she brings out each year. 2016 marks my 4th (or is it 5th) year of using the Life workbook & will be the first year I will be using the Biz workbook. You can read my previous posts by clicking on the Shining Year Workbook tag.

AND this year, apart from the workbooks being totally redesigned (& OMG they are GORGEOUS!!) there is a planner *SQUEE*.

Create Your Shining Year in 2015

Disclaimer – links are affiliate

Can you believe we are nearly at the end of 2014! So much has happened this year, from being in business for 10 years(!) to birthing our second gorgeous daughter in August. 2015 is going to be just as amazing, I can feel it in my bones. Our eldest starts school too! (our little baby is growing up :/)

2015 is going to be my shining year. Especially thanks to the ever amazing Leonie Dawson. This chick rocks my socks. Mum of 2 gorgeous girls (both born within a month of my girls), hippy, amazing tribal leader, wicked business woman and just fanfreakingtastic. In case you can’t guess I’m a bit of a Leonie fan girl LOL
I started following her blog back when it was Goddess Guidebook then when it changed to leoniedawson.com then when it changed to the amazing biz and life academy and I’ll be following it when it undergoes it’s next change too. LOVE it!!

Anywho, each year Leonie creates and releases these amazing workbooks and planners. There are two versions – life and business. I’ve shared my previous years (2014, 2013, 2012) on the blog.

What is the workbook?

The workbook & calendar is an incredibly popular & useful tool to help you plan out & make happen your most incredible year in life or business (or both!). Over the last five years, thousands of women have used this workbook with the most amazing results. It’s the best planning tool available to help you make your year your most exceptional yet!

Used by entrepreneurs, artists, mamas, creatives, coaches, teachers and women of all ages, the Create Your Amazing Year in Life and Biz workbooks are filled with dozens of pages of powerful worksheets & a printable calendar to help you create your amazing new year.

So there you go 🙂 AND this year you can get the workbook in printable format OR as a printed book to create your shining year.

Blessed Winter Solstice

Today marks Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere, the shortest day and longest night. It’s the time to celebrate the return of the Sun’s warmth and light, and the promise once again of a productive Earth. Yule logs are burnt and gifts are given.
I’m celebrating this year with some quiet introspection, enjoying being pregnant and getting ready to bring our little bubba into the world soon. I also thought it would be the perfect time to look back over my 100 things list.
