Recently I was given the opportunity to review a book by Ceril Campbell called Discover the New You and I really enjoyed reading it. It's a book written by a stylist and in this book she aims to help readers transform their lives and personal style. Ms. Campbell has worked with many celebrities who have come to her for style advice and in her book she shares some of that same advice with the rest of us. She shows you how you can feel special and look your best. Discover the New You is an excellent and effective source of advice on style and self-confidence.
The book is divided up into three sections. They are: "The Inner You", "The Outer You", and "Being Your Best You". I love that it's broken down into sections because it gives you time to contemplate each part of 'YOU'. I think it's great that the book starts out with the inner self, because I believe that that is where the true beauty resides. This book points out that there is space for inner beauty and outer beauty to coexist. So I really love that this book takes us on a personal journey that starts inside.
In "Part One - The Inner You", it asks the reader to examine how they feel about themselves. This section offers the chance to do some self-assessment and to examine your life. This part of the book touches upon various subjects such as relationship to food and self-esteem. The book is peppered with quotes throughout which add texture to the flow of the text.
In "Part Two - The Outer You", the book veers over into talk about the physical attributes, such as face shape, skin care, hair care, exercise, and fashion tips. Great advice is given on how to dress for your body type. I found this section very informative and full of practical advice. And it was a fun section!
In "Part Three - Being Your Best You", all of the tips throughout the book are brought together in a nice way. It's sort of like you've been on a journey with your fairy godmother and now she is sending you on to the rest of the journey with some parting gifts of advice!I have a favorite quote from the book that appears on page 222. It says:
'You've soul searched in Part One of your journey, and learnt tricks to improve the physical you in Part Two. Part Three is all about putting yourself out there in your 'new you' mind and body and see who appears' - from Discover the New YouThe book was a fun read and is written in an easy conversational style. There is so much information in between the covers and not enough room here to highlight it all. I hope you'll check it out for yourself!
