Summer in the City: A Lifestyle Editor's Letter

Normally this is the time of the year when I enjoy blue skies and warm sunshine usually by a clear blue sea , perhaps a private beach.  I am writing this however on a Sunday afternoon whilst a few rays of sun filter through my windows; yes the sun is shining and my mind is exploring how to make the best of Summer in the City : things to do, places to go , where to eat ( with outside space), new corners to explore together with some lifestyle, culture, fashion and beauty hacks ( I am not a big beauty buff but I am girl and like my stuff simple and easy ).

I believe in empowering and strengthening entrepreneur, business owners,  career people and especially my fellow women in business through a healthy work and personal life - the power of people, places and things to do. 

A successful person will achieve their goals through a healthy personal life and, throughout the month of August, I'm aiming to take you thorough a journey to inform you and inspire you starting with showcasing every week interviews with women in business, entrepreneur and career women alike , a follow up on my #TheWomanAlchemist monthly feature, this time with 'real, flesh and blood women' ( tune in tomorrow for the first interview);

I cannot not talk about my beloved Islington and everything it has to offer - this month for  #MyBestMealIslington I'm reviewing The Alwyne Castle but also things to do around the capital, and #MyBestMealLondon - Kensington -   Il Portico .

Follow me and my Summer in the City Gude here and on Twitter @PeopleAlchemist  , Instagram @thealchemistabouttown ,I hope you'll like it.

And don't forget: Do Yo & Have Fun!!!

I am so utterly delighted that my book is now out, available to order both on paperback and on Kindle edition just in time for Business Women's Day - YES!!!!!! :-) 

STOP IT! It's all in your head   is my labour of love and my way to encourage, inspire and empower women to achieve what they want professionally and not be confined by societal, religious, family paradigms of what " women should do/are like" and, most importantly, the restrictions in their head.
If that is being CEO of a Global Company or a stay-at-mum or Director of Paperclip ( whatever grabs your fancy) so be it.

Writing this book was also a personal challenge ( the 30 days thingy) which confirmed to me once and for all that you can really do whatever you set your mind to, if you really want to that is.

Couple of tips for writing a book from me:
  • write about what you are passionate about, you know more than you think.
  • free-write about the parts/chapters in the book you like the most and you are most interested in first - that will give you a great boost at the beginning - you can edit and add the boring bits later - by then most of the book will be almost there
  • keep your own voice - write as you speak so to speak ( people do need to understand you though..)
  • keep an open mind, ideas will flow into you mid-way through the project
  • a deadline and going public is good to beat procrastination ( but if that stresses you out too much don't do it) - the deadline certainly helped me.
You can do it too!!!

The time is getting closer and closer to the release of   STOP IT, It's all in your head   my new book ( 22 September for Business Women's Day - US) .

I have now  received the proof copy of the paperback which looks absolutely fabulous: a couple of things to correct but overall I am super happy with the result.
A lot of marketing to do now between Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+ ( which is PS: looking like more work than the actual writing of the book).
