This was me at the beginning of the year.. In a tiny coffee shop creating my first ever vision board. I was the only person at that cafe, one of my favorites in the Philippines because it was a few minutes from home and it’s rustic!

It’s surreal to think that it has only been 11 months.. That girl in that little coffee shop, working on her vision board, creating her dream life, alone.. she had no idea what was in store for her. 2018 has been a year of dreams come true and questions answered! I get chills every time I look at the vision board I created because GIRL theyre coming to life!!

That girl, with her tripod set up in a corner like the cafe was hers.. Little did she know that 11 months (not even a year!!) later.. she would be in another coffee shop.. In a complete different country, frick, continent, creating another vision board but this time, she’ll be doing it WITH OTHER PEOPLE!!! 😭

I and my friends over @yegbossbabes are throwing a Vision Board Party for our Edmonton babes and besties. I get to have a vision board party with besties on January 6th 2019 at the PRETTY Art of Cake!

And it was SOLD OUT within 24 hours of launching on Instagram!! We had 18 tickets sold before then from the newsletter and our friends. Im super grateful!! And happy. I loved how my friends sent me screenshots of their tickets and have just been the most supportive!! When I first had the idea for this vision board workshop, it wasnt even a workshop. I envisioned it to be a hang out session with friends. I literally listed 10 people that I want to create with, and you bet I was ready to DM people to ask if they wanted to create a vision board with me.. Nothing official. Nothing fancy. But God always gives us BEYOND our wildest imaginations 😭

October 17, 2018

I’m someone who would literally write down every single idea I have because I forget it easily! I got an idea to throw a Vision Board with friends because I wanted to create my dreams with others!

I totally made a google doc (see screenshot on the right haha) and pinterest board when I got the idea and worked on an event plan like my life depended on it that day. I wrote down the date I wanted it to be, materials we’ll need, the venue I want, the people I wanted to invite, the day’s agenda and decor ideas.

And yup, I first named it “Cookies and Dream” haha! I thought I was the wittiest person when I came up with that.


And here’s where it gets interesting..

I got an email about an opportunity to host an event. 5 days!!! It was 5 days after I set out the intention that God gave me an opportunity! In my head, before looking back to write this email, I thought it was about a week or 10 days, but having learnt it had only been 5 days is giving me chills!


I swear you guys need to be writing down your goals!!

Whether that’s in paper or digitally. It’s just magic. And thinking about how God came through, ahhhh IM JUST FOREVER GRATEFUL.

Every year, we make new year’s resolutions. But this year is going to be different. Because more than resolutions, we will have VISION. A vision of how we want 2019 to look like, a vision of how we want to FEEL like, a vision the things we want to be, do and have in the coming new year!

It’s going to be a space where everyone is encouraged and we are each other’s cheerleaders! Where we put fuel on other people’s sparks and light each other up. A space where we make the grandest most ambitious dreams feel NORMAL AND ATTAINABLE AND POSSIBLE. It’s going to be a space where dreams are so big it makes you second guess whether youre playing small with yours.

A space filled with best friends and soulmates found in people you just met.

Every year, we make new year’s resolutions. But this year is going to be different. Because more than resolutions, we will have VISION. A vision of how we want 2019 to look like, a vision of how we want to FEEL like, a vision the things we want to be, do and have in the coming new year!

If the answer is always yes, what are you gonna ask for?

As always,
