Miranda's first book Treasure Yourself was the first self-growth book I ever read. It was about six years ago, and my best friend lent it to me after telling me how special it was. Now Tay, (who has been my bestie since pre-school times) has a Mum who was always very into Universal powers. As a result Tay was unusually optimistic and upbeat. She knew about the power of words and how believing something made it true. Back then, I did not, and I thought she was a little crazy (she is, and me too). Anyway, I read it and absolutely fell in love. I had to have a copy straight away so I could read it over and over. It was the first true wake up call to how life is a choice. And so I began choosing. It's been a long journey to where I am now, but I still hold such a huge amount of love for Miranda and her book. Hence, why I was so excited to get her latest book, Empower Yourself. This book is quite different though, and is predominantly just affirmations and tips for living a life of love, joy and harmony. I find what works best for me is to pick a random page and let its contents speak to me, which they do, regularly. There are gorgeous bird illustrations throughout and a sense of calm and sweetness within the pages of this lovely little purple book. Definitely a book to have sitting on your bedside counter! :) xo

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are entirely my own*
This was either the third or fourth time I've read this book. I first discovered this beauty when my best friend lent it to me about five years ago. It is a short and simple book where Kerr shares the journey of her life, and the foundations she has built it on. These centre around positive thinking and the ultimate choice we have to have make each and every day; to be happy. The second half of the book consists of a large number of positive affirmations, surrounding happiness, health, career, relationships and other areas in aid of self love. I remember juts how deep an impact Treasure Yourself had on me when I was fifteen, and in the process of finding myself as a woman and trying to figure out just where I fitted in the world. It is perfectly suited in my opinion for young women, and helps them to see the enormous light and love that they have, and are able to share with the world.
It is another book to be kept on ones bedside table, to flick through at leisure and draw on in moments of the need.
