With a New Year starting, it’s inevitable to remember all the things we wanted to but didn’t get around to achieving in the previous year.  Remember when you planned to eat healthier and do more exercise? Or learn French? We all know that resolutions are tough to stick to, that’s why we made a selection of our most loved books to inspire you in 2019! From motivational books with goal setting advice to how to change your life habits for the better, we have rounded up 3 must-reads to stimulate you this year.


Wear no Evil – Greta Eagan

cover

Why not start the New Year with a more sustainable approach? Sustainable fashion has grown fast in the last few years and as a brand we deeply support this practice. This new book, titled, “Wear no Evil” is written by Greta Eagan, a New York based eco-stylist, who has provided us with a useful guide to navigate this important area of the fashion industry. As well as being an educational read, the book is a guideline for all fashion lovers who want to dress ethically and still look glamorous. We loved this book, as it offers valuable insights into alternative and more eco-friendly materials, consumer empowerment and ideas on how to be more commercially transparent. It also signposts a number of sustainable brands who are acting as role models and examples of how we can shape the future of eco-fashion in a millennials market.

“Greta Eagan has ignited the beginning of a movement towards more conscious and honest fashion where what you wear surpasses aesthetic, and is elevated to an action that enforces good commercial practices and ethics.” – Savant Magazine

 

Becoming – Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama Holds  First Book Signing In Her Hometown Of Chicago

Is January synonymous with new challenges, new jobs or a new life stage for you? If the answer is yes, then you will want to read “Becoming.” The debut novel of Michelle Obama, speaks eloquently and passionately about strength and change, giving readers an insight into the ex First Lady’s life- from a childhood growing up in a one bedroom flat in the South Side of Chicago, to her arrival at the White House and the political tensions felt during those years. This book is a revelation we didn’t know we needed, not because of any obscure stories we may have always wondered about, but because her honesty in speaking about her career, and the hopes and dreams she was carrying for herself and her country, are ones we can all identify with and draw encouragement from.

 

Who says you can’t? You do. – Daniel Chidiac

The start of a New Year should be a time for self-care and a focus on wellbeing. This book is an excellent self-help book that will give readers a platform to take a deeper look into their life. How many of us often live a moment or an entire phase of our life where we don’t feel any kind of enjoyment or fulfilment? Daniel Chidiac’s book supports you to begin the journey to the life you deserve and reflect on how to re-direct your energy in a positive way.

“We can have all the knowledge in the world, have ten university degrees, travelled the globe, or know how to speak five different languages, but if we don’t have true knowledge of ourselves, we will never create the life we want.” – Daniel Chidiac

 

We hope these books will help you grab 2019 with all the energy and spirit in you! Go for it!
