books, Uncategorized

Hello my beautiful readers,

For today I wanted to share with you a video I did were I shared 5 Lessons I Learnt From THE VIRGIN WAY by RICHARD BRANSON.

I really loved reading this book. It was funny, full of great productive advice, simple and to the point. Richard shared so many of his experiences and lessons he’s learnt over the years that have shaped him and the Virgin brand to what it is today.

I hope you enjoy watching this video and learn a few new things. If you haven’t read this book then I highly recommend you do, there is so much more to learn besides the 5 lessons I’m sharing today!

Have a wonderful day 🙂

Journey To A Positive Life One Journal At A Time

books, Uncategorized

Hello my beautiful readers,

In today’s post I wanted to talk to you about positivity and the 5 Minute Journal. I am a big believer that with a positive mindset you can accomplish anything your heart desires. But let’s be real saying we’re going to be positive and actually being positive are two different things. We all know that gratefulness = a positive mindset, but it can be hard sometimes to remember to just sit still and reflect on everything we’re so blessed to have. That’s were the 5 Minute Journal comes into play!

journalcover_grande

I first discovered the 5 Minute Journal after watching a video from Alex Ikonn, who also happens to be the creator of this journal along with his good friend Uj Ramdas. It was around the end of 2014, I think, and I had just discovered Alex and Mimi’s channels and I remember just being instantly drawn to their positivity and attitude towards life. It was so refreshing to see two people who were so full of passion and motivation to change the world through their work. One of the videos I watched of theirs happened to mention the 5 Minute Journal and as you can probably guess I was quick to jump online to see where I could purchase the journal for myself.

I first started using the 5 Minute Journal in January 2015 {it was actually my new years resolution} and I haven’t stopped since. What makes it so special for me is it’s a way I can spend 5 minutes every morning and every night to reflect on all the wonderful people, opportunities, things and memories I’m blessed to have in my life. I think it’s really important for all of us to have a way to show our gratitude because only when we are grateful for what we already have can we be ready for even more amazing things to enter our life.

HOW THE JOURNAL WORKS & HOW TO USE IT

5_minute_journal_description_1024x1024

In the picture above, which I got from the Intelligent Change site, is a diagram of everything that’s featured in the journal.

Every morning you fill out the date, list 3 things your grateful for, 3 things you can do to make that day great and add a daily affirmation.

Then..

Every night you list 3 amazing things that happened that day and write a few ways you think you could have made the day even better.

It’s as simple as that so you can’t make any excuses about how you don’t have enough time or your too busy.

PURCHASING THE JOURNAL

There are a few different ways you can purchase the 5 Minute Journal, these are just a few!

Option one: Is from the Intelligent Change website. It costs $22.95 minus shipping.

Five Minute Journal

Option two: Is from Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/Five-Minute-Journal-Happier-Minutes/dp/0991846206

Option three: Purchasing the 5 Minute Journal app. This is perfect for anyone who prefers having a digital version rather then a physical copy of the journal. Everything on the app is exactly the same as the physical book except for the added feature of being able to add photos to your journal in the app. Which I think is such a cute idea and really adds such a special touch. Plus the app is only $7.99

https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/five-minute-journal/id1062945251?mt=8

Option Four: Create your own 5 Minute Journal. Like Alex mentioned in one of his vlogs it’s important to just start. If that means going to Target or Officeworks, buying a $2 dollar notebook and writing out the journal pages into that then by all means do that. What’s most important is your taking action to change your mindset and your life. I personally did this myself when I first started doing the 5 Minute Journal and I’m so glad I did because if I had waited until I could afford to buy it I never would be were I am today.

That’s it for today’s post. I hope I’ve inspired at least one of you to go and check out the 5 Minute Journal, I can guarantee you won’t regret it! I’ll also link down Mimi & Alex’s YouTube channels, they always post such amazing, valuable content which I think you’ll really love!

Mimi’s Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/MimiIkonn

I hope you all have a magnificent weekend, I’ll talk to you all on Monday!! 🙂 🙂

Books I’m Reading This Month

books, Uncategorized

Hello my beautiful readers,

How are you all doing? For today I wanted to share with you a few of the books I plan on reading this month…and next month as well technically since we are a few days away from getting into July. I still can’t believe how fast June has gone by!

I don’t want to make this post to long to read so I’m gonna get straight into my list of “To Read Books”!

                                               EGO IS THE ENEMY – RYAN HOLIDAY

9781591847816

The first book I am reading, well listening to is Ego Is The Enemy by Ryan Holiday. I would have had no idea about this book if it wasn’t for Alex Ikonn, which if you don’t know who that is definitely check him out I’ll link his social media accounts below. He’s always reading the most interesting books so I always make sure to check out books he mentions or recommends. As I mentioned before I am listening to the audio-book version of Ego is Enemy, I am only 20 minutes in as I write this,  and so far I’m really liking it. I’m still really early into the book, it’s a 7 hour listen, so I haven’t really made up my opinions on it just yet but as soon as I finish the book I’ll definitely put up a book review on here letting you know my thoughts on it.

Here’s a fun interview Gerard Adams did with Ryan Holiday talking about his book Ego Is The Enemy…

                               IMPROVISATION FOR THE THEATER – VIOLA SPOLIN

274628

Acting has always been something I have been really passionate about and I really wanted to learn more about it. After searching online and going through hundreds of acting books, I was really spoiled for choice, I ended up choosing Improvisation For The Theater by Viola Spolin. I’ve heard really great things about this book plus it’s been featured on a lot of “Books every actor/actress should read” lists. So I thought why not give it a whirl also improvisation has always been something that has really fascinated me a lot.

Here’s a clip taken from the documentary Improv Legends which explores the work of Viola Spolin…

THE FILMMAKER’S HANDBOOK -STEVEN ASCHER              AND EDWARD PINCUS

51iy7buc3sl

I have been interested in film making for as long as I can remember. I’ve been studying it for a while now and I really wanted to find a great book that can give me more insight into film making. This one came highly recommended by so many people and has been refereed to by many as the filmmaker’s bible. I’m really looking forward to reading this book, I have a feeling I’m gonna love it!

Those are all the books I plan on reading these next few weeks. I hope I’ve encouraged at least one of you to give these books a try. If these books aren’t really your taste then feel free to let me know in the comments what books you plan on or are currently reading, I’d love to hear from you.  🙂

I’ll talk to you all in my next post!

In Celebration Of The Gilmore Girls Revival!

books, Uncategorized

Rory Gilmore

Hello my beautiful readers,

So how many of you guys were as excited as me to hear about the Gilmore Girls Revival! When I first heard my face was like this for 2 hours straight….

excited selfie stupid mr bean rowan atkinson

I have wanted a Gilmore Girls movie/season for so long and now that it’s finally happening I couldn’t be more excited!

So in celebration of the Gilmore Girls coming back I thought I would try to do the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge again. I have tried doing this challenge many times and I think I got as far as reading 17 of the 369 books. As you an see I still have a long way to go before I finish this challenge but hey what better time to start. My mini goal for this challenge is to read 60 books from the list before the the Gilmore Girls: Seasons airs. Now while I’m not 100% certain to when it will air I have heard people say they think it might air later this year so that gives me a good few months to read 60 books.

Now one big problem I faced the last few times I tried this challenge was how on earth am I gonna buy that many books to read. I know some people would recommend borrowing some of the books from a library and that is a really smart idea but if you don’t have a good library near you then this option becomes pretty useless. After searching through dozens of “free book” sites I finally stumbled onto one I liked.

Project Gutenberg or Gutenberg.org is what the site is called. You go on it and there you will find what seems like every book ever written. Okay maybe not all but a good 90%. You can read all the classics plus books written in Japanese, Ancient Greek, Irish, Yiddish and so many more languages. How cool is that! And the best part is you can read all these books for free. There are no fees or book costs you have to pay.

However if you do find the site useful a nice thing to do is donate a little money to the site so they can buy and digitize more books. It doesn’t have to be a lot even $5 or $10 dollars would be enough just to say thank you for all the free books they offer everyone.

My Books Of The Week

books, Uncategorized

Hello my beautiful readers,

How are you all doing? I have really missed writing these blog post for you guys. As some of you may have seen I have been taking a small break from blogging and that is because I have been working on a few different projects; a little hint one of them may involve me making Youtube videos.

Whilst I’m working on those projects I won’t be able to upload two blog posts a week like usual but what I will do, and have done this week, is upload one blog post and re-blog one of my favorite blog posts that week. I really like this way of doing it since you’ll still be getting two posts a week just one of them won’t be by me but by another amazing blogger from here!

Now let’s get into this blog post before I get completely of topic and start rambling about the pancakes I ate two days ago…

So for today’s post I wanted to share with you some of the books I’ve been reading {and listening} to over this past week. I did think about leaving them until the end of the month then featuring them in a Books Of The Month post but I just couldn’t wait so your getting a early glimpse of that post!

Mastery_CoverThe first book I’ve been reading is Mastery by Robert Greene. Now with this book I am listening to the audio book of it so I am only around 57 minutes in, which if you know how long the audio book is then you’d know I still have a long lonnnng long way to go. {For those of you that don’t know it’s a 11 hour 57 min book}. From what I have listened I am really enjoying this book. First it’s written so well, the readers voice isn’t boring and monotone, which is a huge plus and I’m really loving the concepts from the book. This is one book I would recommended to any one who wants improve and master their craft! A real top notch book!

This next one become one of my instant favorites. I fell in love with the movie Under The Tuscan Sun months ago and when I found out that the movie was based one a book I couldn’t hold in my excitement I wanted to read it so badly. After searching for it for a few months I finally it and I haven’t been able to put it down since. Whenever I read it I get the sense that I’m right there in Cortona walking the streets passing piazza after piazza.

The last book of the bunch is Linchpin by Seth Godin. Now with this book I don’t want to get too in depth about it since I will be doing a separate post about it. I can say that this book is truly life changing and really gets you thinking on how you want to live your life. I especially love this quote from the book.

“The combination of passion and art is what makes someone a linchpin”

Those are all the books I’ve been loving this past week, make sure to check them out! You’ll absolutely love them they are all such great reads! Let me know in the comments what you’ve been reading this week!

As always it’s been lovely writing to you all, I’ll talk to you all in my next post!
