Welcome to a life of perfect days. Thank you so much for stopping by!

My name is Connie, and I began this blog back in 2009 to share my learning's and my journey of self-transformation. I wrote on this site for 3 years and over this time I grew powerfully in my self and made several profound shifts in my life.

My journey on this blog, lead me to training to becoming a life coach, quitting my day job and launching in to setting up my own business. 

As part of my own evolution, and the growth of my business, in 2013 I launched a new website conniechapman.com

This site is an empowering online space full of resources and wisdom for people wanting to live a happier, more fulfilling and magical life.

As a result, I have ceased posting on a life of perfect days but I have decided to keep the site active for anyone who would like to read through my archive of posts on here. 

If you wish to stay up to date on my latest articles, programs and events, come on over to conniechapman.com and share the journey with me. 

You can also enter your details below to gain instant access to my free ebook, The 12 Step Dream Creator Guide and you will also receive my weekly inspiration note delivered to your inbox.

I look forward to seeing you over at my new site!

I am beyond excited about the return of this beautiful program. This year's 90 Day Transformation Project, is going to knock your socks off and I would love to have you as a part of it.

What I love about this project, is that it simply started with one small, inspired idea that in turn took on a life of it's own and grew in to a thriving, love-filled transformational program.


I came up with the idea for this project, while sitting at the international terminal at LA airport. My boyfriend and I had 4 hours to kill before our flight home, so I decided to pull out my laptop and do some writing. Out of nowhere I became incredibly inspired to create a 90 day project in my life to ensure I could get the most out of the remaining 3 months of the year. As I wrote about my little project, the idea grew and I started thinking about how powerful it would be to share this project with my blog readers. Within a few hours I had mapped out the plan for the entire project and I could not wait to get home to share it.

As I mention in the video above, I hoped to have about 20 people join in with me, but the response I received blew my mind! In 2012, over 400 people from all over the world participated in this 3 month journey of collective transformation.

I am not going to go in to all of the details about the project here, as I have created a big, juicy information page for you, where you can read all about it. (Click here to check that out)

But what I am going to do, is tell you why I would love to have you join me for the 2013 project that commences on April 22nd.


1) The project has the potential to transform your life
Now that is a big, bold statement, and it is not one that I say lightly. When I initially created this project, I totally underestimated the power that this type of work had. But now I can really see how life-changing it is. Not only have I experienced it first hand, but I have read countless stories of transformation from the 2012 participants. You can read some of their stories here.

2) The community alone will blow your mind
I cannot tell you how many times last year I was moved to tears by what I say in The 90 Day Transformation Project Facebook community. The connections that were created, the support that was shared and the powerful words that were exchanged was seriously beautiful.

3) I have completely re-invented the program in 2o13
I have shuffled around the week to week work and it will be completely different to how it was structured in 2012. I have properly planned out each week's work in a way that will lead you deeper and deeper in to your transformation as the week's progress. I am also getting the workbooks professionally designed and I have added in a whole heap of new activities and exercises for you. You are going to love them.

4) I don't know when the program will run again
For those of you thinking 'I'll wait to the next one" I honestly don't know when the next one will be. I may run the program again at the end of 2013 or it may not be available again until 2014. So, if you are interested in participating, do not wait, I suggest you jump on board now.

5) The value of what you receive, totally and utterly exceeds what you pay
I have gone a wee bit OTT in the amount of value I am giving to you in this program. You will receive unlimited support from me every month in the facebook group, weekly workbooks, weekly video's AND weekly live call's. Plus, I have created a whole heap of amazing new bonus resources!


Registration is now open! Click here to secure your spot. 

I want you to know that the transformation journey starts the moment you sign up. It begins the moment you make the decision. Plus, as soon as you sign up you get your pre-program workbook and video and you get to join the beautiful facebook community.


It is my intention to share this project with as many people as I can. I know how valuable this work is, and I want to spread the message far and wide.

If you have a blog and would like to interview me about the project please get in touch! You are welcome to send me some interview questions for a written post or hit me up for a super fun Skype interview.

Email me at connie@conniechapman.com if you would like to help me spread the message of this powerful project.

I cannot wait to share this journey with you! Sign up here!

ps: I will be creating a Frequently Asked Questions page for the project, so if you have any questions or things you are unsure of, please post them below and I will include my answers in there!

(Note: if you are reading this in your email, the above VLOG may not be visible. Click on over to the blog to watch it)

I made a commitment to myself recently, to strengthen my connection with my inner guidance. In the past, I had a tendency to only draw on this precious wisdom when I thought I needed it. Most of the time I felt pretty content living from my head, and it was only when my rational mind would fail me that I would turn inwards for support.

But I decided recently that I didn't want my relationship with my inner guide to just be some random and sporadic event, but rather my predominant way of being and living.

I have been working each day to strengthen this relationship by quietening my mind and tuning in to my heart. I have been spending the early hours of the morning sitting by candlelight, becoming more aware of my inner self

As I mentioned in this post, I have been completing a daily practices from May Cause Miracles by witnessing my fearful thoughts and choosing to reconnect with love. I have been slowing down my mind, dropping in my body and starting to feel more. And I have been letting go of my way of doing things and starting to simply tune in to my inner feelings and allow that to guide my actions and decisions.


I started feeling really drawn to share this with all of you, but then I suddenly had a thought. For some of you, living with your inner guidance may seem like a nice concept, but perhaps it is something you have not had much experience with. And while there is nothing wrong with that (as we are all on our own journey and where are exactly where we need to be), I realised that many of you may not really know how to do it!

So, before  I dive in to this topic have a think about the following questions

What does inner guidance mean to you?
What does the term inner guidance feel like to you?
What experiences have you had with your inner guidance so far?


So, in today's video I decided to share some tips on how you can start to build a relationship with your own inner guidance.

In the video, I share some powerful questions that you can start to explore to build this connection, which include

What do you love to do?
How do you feel when you are doing what you love? (list a few key words)
What do you experience in your body when you feel these feelings?
What do those sensations in your body look like?

I recommend you watch the video to get a better understanding of what I mean with these questions, and then go about answering them.


Once you have become familiar with this feeling, I want you to practice how you can start to bring your inner guidance in to your day to day life by choosing to experience these feelings more regularly.

The examples I gave in the video include;

Sitting in meditation each day with the intention of connecting to that loving energy within you
Noticing how you feel when you make decisions and tuning in to which option connects you most to the feeling of your inner guidance
Simply choosing to tune in to that energy within you moment by moment through your day. Perhaps set an alarm on your phone which will go off every hour to remind you to take a deep breathe, drop your attention in to your body and feel. 

I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic. What does your inner guidance feel like to you? What is your relationship like with your inner guide? Do you find it easy or hard to connect with it and follow it? Leave a comment or thought for me below!

So, you know there are some changes on the way for this site and my business. I am slowly but surely chipping away at the mountain that is my new website, and it will not be too much longer before it is here.

So, for those of you who are keen for a little update on what you can expect to see and when you can expect to see it, here is the lo down


So, if you have scrolled down to check out my ebook cover below, you would have noticed my new website domain name. Yep, it is conniechapman.com. I am branding under my own name.

The decision to brand under my name OR under a business name was one that tortured me for months. I really wanted to brand under my name, but I was filled with self-doubt. I had spent years  'hiding' behind the blog name a life of perfect days and it felt scary as hell to have to make my brand all about me. Something was really calling me to 'own this' and step up to shine my light, but a part of my was also very afraid of what people would think.

As a result, last year I chose a business name and I was convinced that it was what I was using. I had my designer create logo's around this brand and I put all of my efforts in to creating it. My head was telling me this was the right decision, but my heart wasn't. No matter how beautiful the work she created, it just didn't feel right. I ended up canning this business name and putting all of the design work on hold.

I learnt a huge lesson during this time.

When you follow your heart and your inner guidance things work. Effortlessly. When you ignore it nothing flows, you encounter roadblocks and stuff just doesn't work.

So, after taking a month off from brand planning and simply meditating and turning inwards...

Something seriously magical happened.

I had always had my heart set on the domain name conniechapman.com but another business was already using it.

Randomly, on December 29th 2012 I decided to go and check the site. To my suprise, the site was up for sale! I placed a bid on the site and I woke up on January 1st 2013 with an email notifying me that the site was mine. Done and dusted!

If any of you can relate to my struggle above, I really want to encourage you to tune in to your heart and find what feels right, not just what your head is saying.

I also happened to come across this awesome clip by Marie Forleo today (which I WISH had come to me months ago) in which is gives some advice on this exact topic.


I doing my best to be relaxed about exactly when the site will be ready. I want to avoid going in to pushing or focusing mode. Rather I have decided to set a date for it's launch and to keep my mind focused on that, but to also remain relatively unattached to having the site ready by then.

So, the anticipated launch date will be Friday 22nd February. And along with that the launch of the site, will also be the launch of my free ebook (below).

On a final note, when conniechapman.com launches, I will not be closing down a life of perfect days. I will definitely be less active on this site, but I know many of you still enjoy reading the content on this site. I do have plans for what will happen with alopd in the future, but I will share more about that later.


Woo hoo! Here it is.

I thought I would give you a sneaky peak of the ebook by sharing a copy of the cover with you!

It is called the 12 Step Dream Creator Guide and it a 30+ page guidebook jam packed full of wisdom, worksheets, principles and practices to help you transform your delicious dreams in to rock-solid realities. 

This juicy little resources is totally and utterly FREE and will be my gift to you as part of the launch of the new site. You will be able to get your hot little hands as soon as the site is live.


With the launch of my new site, I will also be launching some new coaching packages and new ways of working with me. I want to make sure that these packages are structured to support you as best as possible and are tailored to what you need.

I recently had an idea for a new type of coaching program, and it is a totally new way of structuring how I work with people. My heart is calling me in the direction of doing it, yet my head is questioning whether or not it would be valuable SO I would love some feedback from you as to whether this would be useful to you.

I share more information about the new program in the vlog below. If you have any thoughts, comments or feedback about it, please so shoot me through an email or leave a comment below.

30 January 2013


For those of you who read my blog regularly you would have noticed that for the past few months I have been banging on about the elusive new website, e book and brand that I am apparently launching. Yes, I have been talking about it for a while and I am well aware that you are yet to see much evidence of it. 

But, that is all about to change!

I am excited to share that my new website is currently in the throws of being built. Yipee! And I have spent most of today writing the content for it. Double yipee! 

And not only will you be graced with a sparkling new website, but there is a super delicious and absolutely FREE e book waiting for you too! Woo hoo.

Yes, it is all finally happening and I am beyond thrilled. 

So, in my next post I will be making 2 new announcements!

1) I will be giving you all the details about my free e book and how you can get your hands on it

2) I will be sharing with you the name of my new website and also when you can expect to it see it live

But before that, I thought I would share with you why it has taken so damn long.


Have you ever had an outcome in mind of something you want and you have tried to get it happening, taken every action under the sun and thrown everything you have at it, yet it still does not seem to be progressing?


Have you ever had a delicious creative idea bubble forth in your mind, and so you rush eagerly to your notepad or computer to start creating it, yet no matter how hard you try you cannot seem to get it to look like the image in your mind?


Have you ever experienced road blocks, dead ends, shut downs, doors being slammed in your face, rejections and no matter how hard you try nothing seems to work?

Well, in the process of creating my new website I experienced all of that 
and more!

And it took several Universal hits over the head before I finally got the message. I am a Taurean so I will admit I have a tendency to be strong minded, stubborn and at times a bit inflexible. So, yes in this case it took me a little while to pick up on what the Universe was putting down.

But one day, I had a light-bulb moment.

I realised was trying so hard to make things to 'my way', go according to 'my plan', and look the way 'I wanted' it to, that I completely lost sight of the fact that my inner guidance was calling me in a completely different direction.

And so, late last year I decided enough was enough. I simply decided to stop. 

I stopped trying. I stopped forcing. I stopped trying to figure it all out. I stopped pushing. 

I paused the design process. I stopped contacting web designers. I stopped trying to squeeze out creative ideas. And I stopped looking to other websites for inspiration. In fact, I stopped focusing on the development of my website altogether.


So, for most of December I simply let go. I surrendered. 

I realised my way was not working and I became willing to see another way. I decided to turn my attention inwards. To listen. To find my inspiration inside of me. To hear my inner guidance. To tune in to the divine plan.

While nothing dramatic happened initially, the one thing I did notice was that I began to feel better. And one of the key aspects to getting in to flow, is to release whatever is blocking you from feeling good.

And so, that is what I did. I let go and I felt good. And then in the final week of December something magical happened. Everything suddenly began to move again. 

Ideas came together. Inspiration bubbled forth. Clarity rose to the surface. Action's produced brilliant results. Cooperative relationships evolved. Things started flowing. I started making progress. Effortlessly and joyfully. 

And as a result, a deliciously beautiful website, and oh-so-juicy ebook is on it's way to you. And all of it has been created with total and utter flow.


So, if you are experiencing any aspects of what I mentioned above, here is your 5 step prescription for getting back in the flow.

1. Stop doing.

2. Sit down.

3. Be quiet.

4. Let go.

5. Listen.

And that is all.

It really is so simple. And the minute you start doing this, I promise you that everything will begin to flow again. 

Can you relate to my story? If so, I would love for you to leave a comment below

+ Do you sometimes try to force things go your way?
+ And when you do, how do you get yourself back in flow?

I sat down with mine over the Christmas period and mapped out my year. They are so visually beautiful that using them is actually fun! They are full of dozens of pages of powerful worksheets and a printable calendar to help you create an amazing 2013.


I have had the absolute pleasure of getting a little sneaky peak in to this practical and powerful program created by Jia Ni Teo that quite literally has the ability to change your life.

I know that this year many of you are looking to create a blog, launch a business and shine your gorgeous light in to the online world. If you are struggling with where to start, I highly recommend reading this delicious guidebook by Julie Parker from Beautiful You

This guide teaches you how to infuse love and passion in to your business and supports you to build a powerful online presence. Build Your Biz + Blog With Love is not some dry how-to guide rather it is a delicious love infused guidebook that will empower you to take your business to a whole new level in 2013. Personally, this book changed the way I see my biz + brand. Through the process of reading this guide I had numerous light bulb moments, several aha's and learnt a huge wealth of information that I will immediately be applying in 2013.

Oh and if you love what Julie is doing, check out her amazing TEDx talk. Powerful stuff.

When I heard about this amazing program Tara was creating I was over the moon with excitment. The name of the program says it all - The Party Girl's Guide to Peace. Woah, powerful stuff. This really is a much needed message and I am so thrilled Tara is sharing it.  

Launch date for this program is January 18th but in the meantime, grab your free audio of positive affirmations to get you started. Or you can watch a snippets of the amazing interviews that Tara will feature in the program with women such as Hayley Carr and Yvette Luciano.

I met the gorgeous Rachel Gorney (the mastermind behind From My Kitchen) when she hand delivered me my sample pack. Not only is she an absolute delight, but you can tell that she has a deep love and passion for what she does. 

From My Kitchen is a home cooking and catering business that delivers delicious and nutritious weekly snack packs and travel packs to the convenience of your own door. All the ingredients are 100% organic, using only the finest natural products and super foods available. All the recipes are sugar free, gluten free and vegan. They are homemade, guilt free and 100% tasty. 

From my kitchen have just launched an amazing Detox Hamper Pack (featured above) so if you live in Sydney, get in touch with Rachel. Or check out From My Kitchen on facebook.

So while I have recommended an amazing pile of juicy resources for you, I believe you can do all the planning and reading in the world but unless you apply what you know it is worthless.

And that is why I created the Kick-Start 2013 Program. This is a super supportive 3 month coaching program to ensure you are living and breathing what you know, taking powerful actions steps and getting the results your heart longs for.

I initially closed off registration for this program at the end of December 2012, but I have decided to re-open spaces for 3 more amazing people who are ready to create change

I really believe in the power of this program, and I want to still make it available even though 2013 has already begun.

Here are what some kick-starters have said so far...

"Already after one session I feel and look different (feel like the woman staring back at me in the mirror has clearer and more sparkly eyes)! A subtle shift was that I have slept longer and more soundly.  Your guidance and listening was truly a blessing and I am very grateful"

"It was so great to speak to you! I'm so looking forward to our next session and exploring things more, and therefore taking things to a completely new level in 2013. I am so very excited to be working with you"

"Thank you so much for a fabulous session this morning. I really appreciate the opportunity you've given me through our coaching.  Thank you for sharing your talents and being that shining example of how liberating it is to follow your dream and express yourself! Looking forward to our next session!"

10 January 2013


To ensure I absolutely squeeze the very best out of 2013, I have been working to create and implement some beautiful new practices to support me this year.

It is so important to have strong foundations to build big dreams on, and this is all about setting yourself up for success. There have been times in my life where I have felt this energetic rush at the start of a new year and have felt uber motivated and unwaveringly committed to my intentions. Then, as the year goes on I find myself slipping. Life gets in the way. I get carried away in the current of to do list's and obligations and my beautiful, shiny new vision goes out the window.

So, this year I am starting it off right. Here is a little sneak peak in to what I have been doing over the past few weeks to get myself ready for a deliciously juicy 2013.


Back in 2012, I shared in this post about the work I was doing dreaming + scheming for 2013. And it has been such a glorious process. I have been journalling, visualising, planning and fantasising. One of my favourite parts has been creating my vision board.

While I had plenty of lists about what I want to achieve in 2013, I wanted my vision board to be all about feeling. I wanted it to almost radiate a certain energy and to cause my whole body to vibrate with happiness when I looked at it. And I can tell you now, I have acheived just that. Everytime I look at it, it brings a big fat beaming smile to my face. Yay!


My ability to get the most out of my day and be my very best self can be really affected by how I feel physically which is why I place such an emphasis on clean, healthy eating. This year it is going to be incredibly important for me to eat in a way that keeps me nourished, balanced, energised and grounded. 

I mentioned in this video that it was my intention to get myself un-hooked from caffeine and sugar. Rather than trying to go cold turkey (as this doesn't really work for me and consequently leaves me feeling like a total failure) I decided to just gradually ween myself off it through December. 

Over the past month, I have successfully got myself off coffee, eliminated my soy chai addiction and have now replaced all of the above with delicious raw chocolate smoothies! Since doing this I have discovered that I am even really sensitive to the low levels of caffeine in raw cacao powder so I am limiting my chocolate smoothies to once a day and only in the mornings. 

I have also kicked sugar to the curb, totally amped up my intake of green smoothies and have added in a wider variety of fresh leafy greens and other veggies. 

As a result I feel more clear headed, calmer, more balanced and more naturally energised. It is awesome.

above: my raw cacao smoothie

above: my greens + beet juice


It is impossible to build love-filled dreams on fear-driven thoughts. I have been making a strong commitment to myself this year to clear out any lingering bits of negative, fearful and disempowering thinking.

I have been surrounding myself with positivity. I have affirmations stuck to my computer monitor, post it notes on my glass shower screen and Shakti Gawain's meditations on my ipod. I have been taking time each day to connect. To turn inwards and listen to the voice of love. 

I have been applying what Gabrielle Berstein calls the miracle mindset, where a miracle is defined as quite literally a shift in perception. Wherever I encounter fear, I have been working to cleanse it by asking "how can I shift my perspective around this?" and "how can I see this situation with love?"

And, I have been applying this teaching below. 2013 is not so much about changing the world around me, but more so about changing the way I see it, and the way I see myself. And when you do this, the whole world around you will naturally shift as a result.

So gorgeous people, they are 3 super powerful ways I am amping up my positive vibes for 2013.

What have you been doing in the first week of the year to ensure you are setting yourself up for a magical + positive 2013?
