You’re going to need a mouse pad for that wireless mouse. I know, we’re slowly going down a cute product, rabbit hole. I love this full moon mouse pad to the moon and back!
External Hard Drive
So you got a lot of data? Back that thang up! HAHA in all seriousness, having an external hard drive gives you:
keep space free on your PC or Mac.
backup your computer to protect your data in the event of a hard drive crash.
access data, no internet connection required.
run an external drive as a boot drive to increase speed and performance.

Your vision board should focus on how you want to feel, not just things you want. When it comes to making a vision board, the first rule is that THERE ARE NO RULES! Vision boards help to apply the LAW OF ATTRACTION which simply says that you attract into your life whatever you think about and focus on. A vision board should have images and words that inspire you to take action and you may reflect on your goals when it comes to your:
RELATIONSHIPS / FRIENDSHIPS
FITNESS / HEALTH
LEARNING / GROWING
HOBBIES / PASSIONS
Here’s how my vision board reflects my goals for 2019:
Vision Board Theme: “2019 the year of me: stronger, braver, kinder, and unstoppable“
“Celebrate life” / “Treat yo’ self”
Live life to the fullest and celebrate even the small victories and milestones and don’t deprive yourself of happiness. It’s okay to indulge sometimes without feeling guilty about it.
“Your vibe attracts your tribe”
Surround yourself with people who give you energy and positive vibes only! Be the sort of person that makes people happy and who people want to be around and don’t let toxic people pull you into their dramas or problems.
“Less bitter, more glitter” / “Never let anyone dull your sparkle”
Be unapologetically you. Shine like glitter and be bubbly like champagne if that’s who you are. Never compare yourself or your journey with someone else or take others’ opinions personally and just be your happy, sparkly self.
“Start each day with a grateful heart”
The more you appreciate what you have the more happy you will be! Don’t take anything, anyone, or any day for granted!
“beYOUtiful” / “Wake up and makeup”
Remember you are beautiful in your own skin: makeup or no makeup! This year I’m going to share more unique looks because I am passionate about expressing my creativity with makeup.
“Believe in the power of your dreams” / “Dream without fear and love without limits”
I’m a firm believer that if your dreams don’t scare or intimidate you then you aren’t dreaming big enough!
Being kind is my biggest goal, making a positive difference to people is what drives me to work hard so I can give back more. One of my kindness goals is to hit the maximum number of platelet donations this year, that’s 25!
Kickboxing at least 4 classes a week and counting my calories will get me to my fitness goal of 120lbs by May of this year! I’m tracking my progress via apps, fitness trackers, and journals. My virtual race goal is to complete at least 10 virtual races this year (matching 2018).
I would love to save enough for a tropical getaway so I need to work on a side hustle and to be thrifty so I can lay on a beach with a pineapple/coconut drink in my hand
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”
Take risks because fortune favors the bold! Be brave and just go for it because you never know until you try.
“Your smile is your LOGO your PERSONALITY is your BUSINESS CARD, and how you leave people feeling after an experience with you becomes your TRADEMARK”
I attached my social media business card and am currently working on building my “@HONEYBUNNYTWEE” brand! My numerical goals are 10,000 Instagram followers (currently over 7,000), 1,500 Twitter followers (currently over 1,000), and 700 likes on my Facebook page (currently over 400)! How I’m going to achieve this is by consistently creating my own creative content and by reading and interacting with other bloggers and social media accounts I admire!
So what if you don’t have the materials or time to make a vision board? My suggestion is to create a Pinterest board (like this one) and save pins and ideas for later!
Did you make a vision board or do you plan on making one? If you have one I’d love to see it just use #hbtblog, this year I want to work with and connect with other goal-getters / bloggers / creatives / small businesses / brands! Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org and maybe we can collaborate on a project or on reaching our goals together 🙂 <3
