This book provoked a lot of reflection in me, not least because I was reading it whilst also on my own soulful adventure. It covers Liz Gilbert's journey to heal her emotional pain and depression, discovering new and wonderful things about herself, finding friendships and love in the process, as she spends a year living and travelling around … Continue reading Book Review: Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
What can I say about this book other than it is AH-MAZING. Few voices have resonated with me so well as Lucy Sheridan and Jo Westwood's. Perhaps it is because they are young British women who thoroughly understand our generation's needs, but I really felt like they were speaking to me. In this fast-paced modern … Continue reading Book Review: #HigherSelfie by Lucy Sheridan & Jo Westwood
I felt very drawn to reading this book and intuitively knew that it could be a massive help on my journey inwards. But, curiously, I experienced some strong internal resistance at certain points whilst I was reading it. I realised after a while that it was the fearful side of me that was trying to put up … Continue reading Book Review: Spirit Junkie by Gabrielle Bernstein
I loved this book, plain and simple. I have been reading a lot of self-love and empowerment books lately and they have all been so fantastic, but what I really loved about The Goddess Revolution is Mel Wells' warmth. At times, reading this felt like being enveloped in a big hug. Her wisdom, earned from … Continue reading Book Review: The Goddess Revolution by Mel Wells
I was already intrigued about reading Cheryl Strayed's memoir of walking the Pacific Crest Trail as a solo female hiker when I saw that Lit Without Limits, a non-profit organisation supporting the empowerment of girls through literature, had chosen it as their July read. As a woman who loves hiking, strong women and literature, I thought … Continue reading Book Review: ‘Wild’ by Cheryl Strayed
I have read (and still am reading) lots of inspirational and self-love books, but so far Mastering Your Mean Girl has been the cherry on the icing. Melissa Ambrosini's book is, as she fully intended, bursting with love and wisdom. Her motivating force is love and that really came through on single every page, in turn firing up … Continue reading Book Review: ‘Mastering Your Mean Girl’ by Melissa Ambrosini
I have been incorporating more and more aspects of simple living and the zero waste lifestyle into my own of late, so when I came across Stuffocation: Living More With Less I was intrigued. With the exception of books and crystals, which I seem to be gathering to myself with the gravitational force of the … Continue reading Book Review: Stuffocation by James Wallman
I loved this book so much that I devoured it in two days. It really did exactly what it promises: it made me realise just how much I need to celebrate myself, and how I deserve it. We all need to show ourselves not just a little love, but A LOT of love! Part memoir, … Continue reading Book Review: Radical Self-Love by Gala Darling
It might sound melodramatic but it would be the truth to say that this book changed my life. Any fan of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings knows how profound and incredible those stories are, but I never realised just how much wisdom lay in those books and how much of it I could incorporate into my own life.
What I garnered from A Woman's Worth is a new realisation that there really is as much strength in our delicate, gentle aspects as there is in our feisty and tempestuous aspects. And that, when all those parts are united, we are a force to be reckoned with! We need to believe in ourselves again, and in what we can achieve.
