Mindfulness - a practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world
I often have trouble with anxiety and worry about the smallest things, some of which really are little! I have been recommended this book which also comes with a free CD. I also caught my friend reading it when I recently visited her! I have yet to finish it, but find the meditations really useful.
Building a business from the kitchen table
Really inspiring read from the founders of www.notonthehighstreet.com about how they created a now very successful business. I have had a few ideas of my own and wanted to read their advice and review their processes. I have always been a fan of their website. It really is definitely a case of finding a gap in the market and carrying out research to see if there is a demand for your business idea. I can think of numerous other businesses that started as ideas such as the Trunki and Tangle Teezer brush.
Reading Wish List:
Vintage craft projects, the Queen of Style. I have already read her biography "All That Glitters"
Kat Von D - Go Big or Go Home
The talented tattoo artist releases her third book.
I love the book and TV series equally. Can't wait for the next instalment, it's one of those rare books I can't put down!
Cabbages & Roses
Just bought a lovely dress from Uniqlo who have collaborated with Cabbages & Roses for a really cheap price and it has a nice, summery print. Seeing this has made me interested in the shabby chic style this brand has to offer and tempted by their range of books on interiors and crafts.
