London Mums’ book of the month is You Are Positively Awesome: Good Vibes and Self-care Prompts for all of life’s ups and downs by Instagram star Stacie Swift, who describes herself an illustrator, writer, coffee drinker and a busy mum of three. Stacie is very good at social media and I personally look at her as a thought leader in that field. She has 286K Instagram followers and she posts every day. She is a real pro at using an Instagram post maker to create her content.
Drawing from the struggles and juggles of everyday life and the ups and downs we all experience with our mental health, she found her voice by sharing her own words of support and positivity; self-care and words of wisdom all wrapped up in an accessible rainbow of colourful drawings and lettering posted daily to Instagram. Focusing on positivity, self-care and mental wellbeing, Stacie’s illustrations aims to bring a bit of brightness to each day by offering support and affirmations in an accessible and relatable format.
In You Are Positively Awesome: Good Vibes and Self-care Prompts for all of life’s ups and downs, Stacie offers everyday bursts of positivity and an extra dose of self-kindness – reminding you that you are positively awesome! We so desperately need to be positive through unprecedented times like in 2020, a year that has tested us all with the pandemic crisis which has put most people under a great deal of pressure. A book like this should always be in prominent position on the shelf to remind us to stay positive, no matter what.
Stacie’s book and illustrations are for everyone – we all need a burst of positivity and some self-care reminders to get us through life’s ups and downs…especially right now as we gradually ease out of pandemic lockdown into a new ‘normal’.
Whether you need an affirmation to make you smile or practical tips on upping your self-care, Stacie brings a rainbow of good vibes filled with self-care prompts and words to live by.
Here are some of my favourite pages from the book.
