Live Dream Sparkle is moving..

were moving

Hello my lovely readers,

I just wanted to let you know that I am currently in the process of moving this blog from its current home at to a self hosted site so that in the future I can offer you all sorts of better content and new bits and bobs to inspire you.

I am attempting to migrate all current followers over to the new site, but if for some reason this doesn’t work or you are not currently a follower but want to be, then head on over to

Thanks lovelies, hope you are having a wonderful day whatever you are doing.

Love and sparkles

6 Tips to have an Auspicious August

auspicious august

Welcome to August lovely readers, I hope that you are enjoying a positive start to the month.  After a challenging first half of the year I am looking forward to making the most of a fresh new month.  So I have some strategies that I am going to employ to make this August Auspicious, and I would like to share them with you so that you can either try them yourself and/or come up with some strategies to help your August be Auspicious. So lets go:

  • I will avoid negativity as much as possible – for me this means not watching or reading the news. hiding some pages/profiles on social media and being aware of the energy of those around me, so not participating in gossiping etc.
  • I will encourage positivity in my life. I will try to use positive language more frequently, I will be sure to write each day/night in my gratitude diary, I will regularly update my unforgettable moments book and basically do everything in my power to see the good in every day.
  • I will seek to be inspired wherever possible, e.g. nature (a beautiful sunset), blog posts, pinterest, magazines etc
  • I will create some fresh dream boards.
  • I will sprinkle more fun and and things that make me smile into my life. Working full time and investing in this blog (plus all that I have planned for the future) is stretching me pretty thin at the moment so I will schedule in some fun.
  • I will enjoy celebrating my birthday at the end of the month.
  • Take time to just breathe.

Make time to do whatever it is that

This is just a quick round up of some of the main things that I plan on implementing this August, I will also seek to continue my creative work with this blog and the background work that I have going on.

So do you have any suggestions on how I could make my month even better or how you plan to make August the best month of the year so far.
