CHANGE YOUR LIFE IN 2019 – MAKE THIS THE YEAR

CHANGE YOUR LIFE IN 2019 – MAKE THIS THE YEAR

Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

As we are all looking for inspiration and light during these dark and gloomy months, we have decided to rehash some all time favourites of which you may or may not be aware.  But classics always stand the test of time and these are no exception.

Whether you are looking to feel more confident, have more income or wanting a complete life makeover, look no further, these books have it all, and are a ‘life’ companion.

These are our all time favourites, and our ‘bible’ to consult if any of us are feeling down.

The Secret by Rhonda Byrne

This is a best selling book based on the law of attraction which claims that thoughts can change a person’s life directly.  It has sold over 30 million copies worldwide and has been translated into 50 languages.

Rhonda provides quotes and examples of people whose lives have been transformed by this ancient but contemporary philosophy and she herself has turned around her own life when going through trauma with the ethos ‘ask and you will receive’ along with ‘gratitude and visualisation’.

You can never read it enough, and whenever you go back you discover something else you have missed or forgotten, to add to your valuable brain bank of life.

Chicken Soup for the Soul by Jack Canfield

This self-help book is 20 years old but can become a bible for people looking for a life or career change.

It is constantly being updated and even has a website www.chickensoupforthesoul.com  relating to the first book which has sold millions of copies worldwide.

Some of the guidance is always a constant, which ranges from utilizing all of the tools in our kitbag however inappropriate they seem at the time, taking action, learning a new skill today, spending less time on the phone or watching mindless television to healthy living but eating ice cream if you want to.

Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker – Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth

If you have a British mindset and have a problem discussing the acquisition of money or getting rich, get over yourself, because we all need it and this charismatic (and you may say crass) speaker and writer has some brilliant advice for the more reticent among us to get off our butts and create some wealth.

As well as pragmatic tips and guidance, based on his own experiences, Mr Eker is surprisingly spiritual and believes in self belief and visualization to change our inner blueprint around money, as well as good old fashioned proactivity.

You can also see him online, and his videos are incredibly inspiring when you need to be reminded of certain business strategies to bring you back to basics and to stay on track.

Birth of a Cult: M.A.C From Wow to Now!

Birth of a Cult: M.A.C From Wow to Now!

Reading Time: 5 minutes

 

All Ages, All Races, All Sexes… A professional makeup brand setting trends backstage at fashion weeks around the world. Today, M·A·C means so many things to its millions of fans in every corner of the planet, but a global beauty phenomenon has to begin somewhere.

Make-Up Art Cosmetics started life in Toronto, Canada. Makeup artist and photographer Frank Toskan and salon owner Frank Angelo became frustrated by the lack of makeup that photographed well, so they decided to create their own. At first, they made the cosmetics in their kitchen and sold them straight from the salon to fellow makeup artists, as well as models and photographers. Soon, stylists and fashion editors got in on the action. As the magazine credits racked up and word-of-mouth popularity grew, the duo launched M·A·C in March 1984 from a counter in a Toronto department store.

Their approach was chic utility, with the makeup coming in black pots rather than compacts. While other major makeup brands at the time were predominantly skincare companies, M·A·C chose instead to establish itself as the ultimate colour authority. Professional makeup artists manned the counter, an industry first. One of the most popular offerings was an intense matte red lipstick, which got a boost with an appearance in a photo-shoot of the fast-rising Madonna.

The company took the industry by storm, offering a wide range of products that blended street savvy with glamorous style and panache. Behind the counter, the M·A·C approach was notably different. Rather than driving sales through traditional promotional techniques, M·A·C relied on the integrity of its carefully formulated product line. Adding to the image was a touch of outrageousness. A company that honours individuality and self-expression above all else, it brought a brilliant sense of drag and theatre into the sleek M·A·C stores and department store counters.

M·A·C is sold today in over 105 countries around the world. It remains committed to developing new categories, products and over 50 collections each year, all of which continue to serve the demand of consumers and professional makeup artists alike.

Collaborations with adored names from popular culture, art and fashion have included such names as Rihanna, Lorde, Proenza Schouler, The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Brooke Shields. These continue to enhance M·A·C’s relevance and reach to existing fans as well as new ones, while our makeup Artists’ rock-steady presence backstage at over 200 fashion week shows around the world, working with names from Prabal Gurung to Vivienne Westwood, secures the envied status of M·A·C as the world’s leading beauty trendsetter.

FESTIVITIES OVERFLOWING WITH JOY AND GENEROSITY

FESTIVITIES OVERFLOWING WITH JOY AND GENEROSITY

Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

As we enjoy copious amounts of food and wine over the festive season, and generally push the boat out and abandon ship where our diets are concerned, let us spare a moment to think about those less fortunate, whose only hope of a Happy Christmas is the generosity of a friend, neighbour or complete stranger.

Friends of mine who are very well off spent half of last Christmas day serving food to the homeless at their local Shelter, and said it was one of the best festive holidays they could remember.  You don’t have to turn up in person to help, just donate what you can to the Charity as the money will go straight to a counsellor or family and could turn around a life in a heartbeat.  If you go onto the Shelter website, there are numerous cases of how lives have been destroyed, often by unseen circumstances, but can be turned around by our own contributions and good will.

I have recently been aware of the food banks in my local supermarkets and am pleasantly surprised at the amount of food and gifts that generous shoppers have donated, but it isn’t enough – we could all be doing more.  Perhaps like me in recent years, you have been so hell bent on a perfect family Christmas, you have forgotten to consider how others are suffering with little or no hope of any sort of celebration at all.  Guilty as charged, but it is not too late to change.

I am not saying we should all take ourselves down to the local food bank, but remember what Meghan Markle used to do in LA with the leftover food from a film shoot – which was quite a pioneering gesture at the time.  She has now extended it to helping to support victims of the Grenfell Tower tragedy by cooking with its charity members in their multi-cultural kitchen.

We all know that Princes William and Harry have carried on Princess Diana, their mother’s legacy, of supporting the homeless, and are regular visitors at Centrepoint in London.

It doesn’t even have to be someone who has lost their home, It could be an elderly neighbour who is too proud to tell you they will be lonely, or someone suffering from depression who could benefit from even a phone call, let us all give one minute of our time. So never mind Brexit or our own economy, the world would be richer and a far better place if we just paused for a moment amidst all the mayhem, and considered how we could help improve someone’s life this festive season and extend it well into 2019.
