Beyond the exquisite images the book contains, Style Statement has helped me rediscover me. As a business owner and mother, I've found it extremely helpful in all areas of my life. I've found my focus which is reason to celebrate.
From picking out new dishes easily and effortlessly to creating a new hairstyle to helping me partition aspects of running my business, my style statement (cultured designing) has played a role. It's a map, it's a guide, it's magical - it's a path back to you, no matter how buried the real you has become.
My only question is - so when is the next book out Carrie & Danielle?
This book will guide you to find the ability to be authentic in all parts of your life - at home, in your relationships and at work.
I've found that using my style statement, (with the accompanying exercises), as my own personal mission statement, has helped me clarify my goals, vision and direction of my life!
I highly recommend this, not only as a good read - but as a map and guide.
