Description

From the chic front cover (sunny yellow, with contrasting blue lettering) to the flippant title it feels as though we’re firmly in beach book territory. She is sure to mention that she not only had excellent familial support through the whole process, but also the addition of a nanny and au pair, which is of course out of reach to your typical start-up businessperson!

This is one of those books that you can revisit anytime and read any page and it would still be interesting and insightful. It helps to come back to a good book after a long day, which looks and feels like a warm sunshine company and you don’t mind spending some alone time with it. As an aside - somehow I got halfway through the book thinking the author was another accessory designer altogether (Lulu Guinness!There is little psychological underpinning for the tips in this book, and aside from a bit of NLP, she doesn’t align her advice to any particular theory. To celebrate the launch of her new book, Anya did it in true Anya style with a fun memorable pop up.

And it’s with this honest and open approach that she goes on to detail her battles with anxiety and her life spent building a business. A few years ago just after I’d started my design agency Tickety Boo Creative I got to meet Anya at one of her famous pop ups for the launch of her Labelled range. I love that she doesn’t speak so highly of herself, she’s so humble (I really want to meet her in real life!She has honorary doctorates from UEA and the University of Essex but lives in London, where her proudest achievement was hosting a sleepover in the bed department of Peter Jones. A friend gifted me this book and I loved it so much that I bought 7 copies for my other girlfriends. The down to earth insights make one realise that one doesn't always need MBAs or other deep initial experience to get something off the ground and flying if you have grit, creativity, determination, team spirit and the right attitude.

You can define your brand all you like, but it actually means nothing if it is at odds with your behaviour - with all what is said and done and how it is done, repeatedly day after day. Then suddenly the book seemed to swerve - from general observations and thinking, into a business book, which I wasn't expecting. I love how open and honest she is about her experiences and Mum guilt (I’m sure all Mums have this at some point, I know I have).From practical tips and quick fixes to profound observations about confidence and creativity, this inspiring handbook will show you how to live a little better - and why sometimes, the answer can be as simple as washing your hair.
