'Echoing the thoughts behind Leonardo Da Vinci's quote that "simplicity is the ultimate sophistication," The Minimalist Babe teaches you how to value the simple things. From learning to declutter and live with less to living life with passion, good health, and great relationships.' As a book juggler, I juggle between many books at a time to make sure I make touch every book that stands in my shelf but, The Minimalist Babe got me hooked to read her in one-sit and I did not regret at all! This book is a guide for anyone irrespective of gender, race, mentality or level of reading ability. Lola's simple diction, catchy phrases and sentences, beautiful metaphors and diversity of literary techniques along with the challenges included, makes this book reliable like a friend in need. I would highly recommend this book for anyone who is expecting progress in life, whoever is ready to take their first step to self-care and self-love. Minimalist Babe is a 'must-have' in all your 'daily reads for motivation' shelves.
‘The Minimalist Babe’ is due for launch in September 2019 and I have had the privilege of seeing an advanced copy. There are some books that just ‘enrich’ your life, this is one of them. Minimalism, as a way of life, is often considered to be a bit, well let’s say ‘dull’. Read this book and you will not only see the incredible practical value of minimalism but how much you can learn about yourself along the way. Lola R Marie writes for both men and women, despite the title and, if you’re anything like me, will find yourself being almost ‘magnetically’ drawn to a simpler, richer, fulfilling lifestyle.
