Ok so I'm not exactly ahead of the times in reviewing Lorna Janes first book (she's just released her third), but a good book is timeless right?
Following the lead of the company mantra, MOVE, NOURISH, BELIEVE is an asthecially appealing book. Written by Lorna herself, it's divided into the three sections of the title. It's full of inspiring pictures, quotes and real life stories to get you motivated, plus seasonal recipes from Lorna's kitchen.
IN THIS WORLD THERE IS NO FORCE EQUAL TO THAT OF A DETERMINED WOMAN - LORNA JANE CLARKSON
I really enjoyed reading this book, and the story of how the brand begun. Would you believe Lorna used to cut and sew leotards in the back of a gym in the 90's? She offers a light hearted peak inside the brand, and the involvement she still has in each and every design. It's heart warming to know that despite the brands success, Lorna still remains involved in so many ways.
Not only do you get a look into how Lorna stays fit, but there are also a bunch of inspiring story's from LJ customers who have gone on to achieve great things after finding inspiration in the brand, a few of which are now employees.
I love hearing stories about successful women in business, and this one doesn't disappoint. I believe there should be more support and encouragement for women who are brave enough to step out and give their 'crazy, exciting, game changing' idea a shot!
MOVE, NOURISH, BELIEVE, offers inspiration on so many levels and was a great light hearted read. I think it would make a great gift for a girlfriend in need of some inspiration!
