The Seeds of Beauty Book Review

Join Lakeysha-Marie Green, author of the fashion/self-help book, The Seeds of Beauty:Defining Your Beauty From the Inside Out, as she tours the blogosphere June 17 - September 13, 2013 on her first virtual book tour with Pump Up Your Book!


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 groundbreaking 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 View:

It's a really good handbook for someone who really needs this type of book. I know that some of the bits of information actually were kind of awesome, like the things that will make you look better if you choose right accessories. For instance, I found out that a short person like myself is better off getting smaller handbags that either have embellishments or a lot of detail than to get the bigger handbags. According to the book, bigger handbags just make me look smaller where the smaller ones with details will make me look taller.

Same thing with belts, scarves, shoes and lots of other hints that they throw at you to make you look either taller, slimmer or just plain better looking and put together. This would be a great book for someone who works in a corporate office or someone looking for an important job and wants to make the best impression. It's a great tool for a young girl going off to college and ready to start her life on the best footing possible.

Happy Reading!
