 How to be an overnight success - book review
I follow @mrsrodial on social media as I think she is very inspiring business person. And as I love to read both business books (preferably by the founds of businesses) and biographies.

Overall I thought it was a brilliant book, written in a personal way, sharing both insights on the personal journey and handy take-aways in the form of “overnight success secrets”. Hint – it took Rodial 18 years to reach where they are today. This was one of the things I liked the most, because, in many of the books I’ve read, this vital piece of information is missing – that it’s a journey and there is no such thing as an overnight success.
Who is this for:

    Anyone who is interested to read about the starting point and the journey of a brand (it’s not specific for the beauty business but it’s interesting that the book feature a beauty brand)
    Anyone looking for inspiration and motivation on their own journey, either it be starting your own business or working a “ordinary” job. I enjoyed the personal insight into the author’s career and her tenacity and drive, it’s infectious!
    Who wants another perspective and some creative ideas of what to do on a shoe string budget or how you can solve anything with the right attitude, creativity and the right amounts of espresso!


Why you should read this book:

    It’s filled with handy advice and creative ways to solve PR to events, from the “starting out days” to how the business and brand is managed when it’s grown both in size, markets and revenue.
    The book covers topics such as; building a brand, social media, PR, creating buzz for your brand, overcoming daily struggles, how to take care of yourself, making it happen, staying motivated, refining your appearance and how to build a strong personal brand.
    You will get new ideas and inspiration – be sure to have pen and paper at hand!
    You will get motivated for sure!
    Most importantly, it’s written in a personal and entertaining language. It’s an enjoyable read while you learn new skills.

This books is already a favourite. If you read it, let me know what you think about it.

The 10 Must-Haves for Any Successful Event 
    Motivation:

There must be a reason for why you are doing your event, so find the reason and understand what your crowd will be looking for, especially what kind of event you want to deliver and why you are currently developing your event.

    Idea


Now that you know what you are trying to do, you need to shine above the rest. How do you do this? Bouncy castle at a wedding? Upside down cakes hanging? Mermaids?  Maybe a masseur in the middle of your venue, to the sound of a live saxophonist. We’ve done this all (and more!) before, and we’ve got you covered for everything.

    Knowing your Crowd

Understand the kind of people you are trying to attract or that you are trying to impress. What is the age of those attending? What do they like? Right now it’s key that reflect upon these questions so as to know who you are catering for.

    The Venue

This is the first real step in making your event legendary, classic, and original; the event that …
The beauty products you always need to carry in your make up bag!
Long days are a synonym for retouching in makeup terms. Whenever i know I'll be having a long day I prepare my bag with a few things that i know i will need after a couple of hours.
Unfortunately, i can't bring my everything with me, so i need to choose my favorite products.
 Although i wished i could throw every single lipstick i own and a huge palette into my bag i know that its not practical. I compared my necessities to my fellow bloggers' bags and created this small list that doesn't take much space but will help you out for a flawless makeup any time, especially in the wintertime.

 Firstly: The Mattifying Face Powder
Because most of us get oily throughout the day, especially if you're in a rush and what i usually use is the Purobio Cosmetics Compact Powder, which is weightless, organic, vegan and affordable. I really love it because it's totally invisible when you apply it on the skin.
