ABOUT THE SEEDS OF BEAUTY

What’s the real secret to radiant beauty? It may come as no surprise that how we look on the outside is directly connected to the beauty deep inside us. What’s more, when we are burdened with the weight of low self-esteem, it’s all-too-visible in our physical appearance. That’s why a truly successful makeover begins by reconnecting with who we are at our very core—long before the swipe of the credit card or snip of the shears.

Now, fashion stylist Lakeysha-Marie Green has written a ground breaking new guide to developing show-stopping beauty from the inside out. Inspirational and easy to use, The Seeds of Beauty seamlessly joins the key elements of inner beauty with savvy, expert style advice on making the most of your own physical attributes. Addressing both of these all-important parts of true beauty, this gorgeous resource comes together in one illuminating journey that looks as fabulous as it feels.

 In Part One, “Beauty Within,” you’ll learn to build a foundation of self-love, exploring subjects such as acknowledging your value, developing resilience and finding the courage to move forward. Part Two, “Beauty Reflected,” offers you practical advice on wardrobe fundamentals to bring out your beauty and create a winning style, such as working with your body type, selecting your best colors, choosing a swimsuit, and even building a shoe wardrobe. Unlike other fashion and beauty makeover books on the market, The Seeds of Beauty challenges you to discover just why you are uniquely beautiful on the inside. Once you have embraced your own brand of beauty, you’ll be truly motivated to master the building blocks to accentuate your appearance—and glow with your own exquisite beauty from the inside out.

My Review:
Lakeysha-Marie wrote in the Preface what we all know. What we all fail to remember to do. That is just breathe. That's it. Take a breath. Let it out. Breathe. And, it took a small child taking her by the hand to remind her of that simple fact. Breathe.

The author begins the very first chapter with a simple statement that sums up life - "Change does not always begin with a well-forged plan from point A to point B." I am a planner. I always have a plan, and it generally involves point A and how to get to point B. But, as Lakeysha-Marie points out, life just doesn't work that way. Life is a journey and our change comes in the form of many avenues of inspiration. But, to change, we need a vision. And, that is what this book is all about.

The author gives us the tools we need to find out who we are at our core, to create a vision of who we want to be, and how to achieve that goal.

Each chapter begins with an inspiring quote, and each chapter ends with a set of 'Beauty Brainstorm' questions to help the reader through their step-by-step journey of discovering their inner beauty. They are directly related to the chapter the reader has just completed.  

The book is a guide to your own personal journey and one I think would be greatly beneficial to teenage girls as well as young adults and older women. It is never too late to embrace who you are and what you were meant to bring to the world. This book is a first step.
