Up Close and Personal with Lakeysha-Marie Green, author of ‘Seeds of Beauty’

theseedsofbeauty-coverABOUT THE SEEDS OF BEAUTY

What’s the real secret to radiant beauty? It may come as no surprise that how we look on the outside is directly connected to the beauty deep inside us. What’s more, when we are burdened with the weight of low self-esteem, it’s all-too-visible in our physical appearance. That’s why a truly successful makeover begins by reconnecting with who we are at our very core—long before the swipe of the credit card or snip of the shears.

Now, fashion stylist Lakeysha-Marie Green has written a groundbreaking new guide to developing show-stopping beauty from the inside out. Inspirational and easy to use, The Seeds of Beauty seamlessly joins the key elements of inner beauty with savvy, expert style advice on making the most of your own physical attributes. Addressing both of these all-important parts of true beauty, this gorgeous resource comes together in one illuminating journey that looks as fabulous as it feels. In Part One, “Beauty Within,” you’ll learn to build a foundation of self-love, exploring subjects such as acknowledging your value, developing resilience and finding the courage to move forward. Part Two, “Beauty Reflected,” offers you practical advice on wardrobe fundamentals to bring out your beauty and create a winning style, such as working with your body type, selecting your best colors, choosing a swimsuit, and even building a shoe wardrobe. Unlike other fashion and beauty makeover books on the market, The Seeds of Beauty challenges you to discover just why you are uniquely beautiful on the inside. Once you have embraced your own brand of beauty, you’ll be truly motivated to master the building blocks to accentuate your appearance—and glow with your own exquisite beauty from the inside out.

The thing about me is that I still like looking for adventures to go on.

When I first get up in the morning, I give thanks for another day and take a few moments to enjoy the quiet.

The most important thing in my life is my family.

I love to travel to Europe! The mixture of cultures…delicious foods…I really enjoy the beauty of it all.

In my spare time, I am trying to learn a foreign language.

One thing I learned about life was to step back and take the time to enjoy it.

The sole mission I am on this earth is to share what I have learned to benefit the life of another.

One little known fact about me that might surprise you is I am a violinist.

My favorite time of day is early morning when everything is still quiet.

I love to write about inspiration, fashion and culture.

The most difficult aspect about writing is getting the ideas to make sense to someone other than myself.

My most favorite aspect about writing is the power that words have to change things for the better.

When I became a published author for the first time, I jumped up and down a few times.

The inspiration behind my book comes from a strong desire to empower others who may struggle with the same issues surrounding self-esteem and personal image as I have.

The most asked question about my book is what inspired me to write it.
