Book Review: Self Confidence

selfconfidenceDisclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Self Confidence: How to Overcome Shyness, Worry and Boost Your Self Esteem is a short book to help you become more confident.  This is something that I definitely need help with so I was very interested in what the author of this book had to say.

Chapter 1 is all about how to overcome shyness by changing your appearance.  I’m really not sure that this is the issue with me.  Not that I am always dressed to impressed, but I really don’t care what others think about my outfit.  I’m not sure that’s the root of my shyness.  But for some, I guess changing your look can help.

Chapter 2 is about how to be confident by using positive affirmations.  This I feel is more of a probably for me and I found this chapter to be helpful.

Chapter 3 is how to overcome insecurity once and for all.  It has a list of things that may cause you to be insecure (Trust issues, Self-guilt, poor feeling of self-acceptance, fear of being overshadowed, poor appearance) and then it goes in to each of these causes and lists ways to try and improve these and overcome each of these.

Chapter 4 is how to stop worrying using the power of positive thinking.  This chapter is also all me.  I worry about EVERYTHING.  Things that I shouldn’t even care about.  Things that happened in the past that I can’t change I still worry about.  This chapter talks about how it is hard to stop worrying in some people and how to stay happy and stop worrying. I will definitely be putting this chapter in to use in my life and hopefully if it doesn’t get rid of all my worrying it will get things down to a manageable amount. (I actually am causing myself health problems due to my worrying stressing me out so I definitely need to work on this!)

Chapter 5 is How to improve low self-esteem and have healthy relationships.  I think this chapter is good for almost anyone – relationships are hard and there are some great tips here on how to help with them and what to do- like taking some time out for yourself!

Book Review: Lost New York


Lost New York is an amazing book with some great photographs and information about beautiful New York buildings that are no longer. It’s kind of a shame because they really are spectacular and I’d love to photograph many of them if they still existed. (2 I had been to before they were demolished – Yankee Stadium and Shea Stadium!) I’ve never been to Coney Island, but it looks like I missed out on a bunch of cool stuff (though most of it was already gone by the time I was born).  And some gorgeous mansions were demolished in the city as well. Wow. Definitely a great book for fans of New York, Architecture, History, Photography… This book covers it all.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.

About the Book

Like a parallel universe, an entire city could be formed with the lost buildings of New York City’s past. Lost New York is a walk through this virtual metropolis. More than an architectural tour, it is a fascinating view of the city’s ever-changing landscape and way of life, from magnificent buildings like Penn Station and the glorious mansions of the Gilded Age to trolleys, diners, racetracks and baseball parks that now exist only in photographs.

Filled with intriguing photographs on every page, the book illustrates both the city’s distant and recent past, from the mid-nineteenth century through the first decade of the twenty-first. It follows a chronology of constant change, charting the years when the major features of the city were destroyed, altered or abandoned. Forests of tall-masted ships, horse-drawn carriages and massive train terminals gave way to cars and trucks. Dazzling amusement parks and luxurious resorts in Coney Island, the great World’s Fair of 1939, rock ’n’ roll palaces, and many romantic features of Central Park are now only memories. Buildings that have become icons of the New York cityscape hide an earlier history, like that of the first Waldorf-Astoria, the world’s largest and most opulent hotel that once stood on the site of the Empire State Building.These lost places are interwoven with engrossing stories of the multi-millionaires, robber barons, artists, engineers and entrepreneurs who shaped New York. They are a record of historic events, of disasters like the sinking of the Normandie at a Manhattan pier, and the world-shaking tragedy of the World Trade Center. The dynamic forces that created New York left a trail of memorable yet neglected history as amazing as the city today. Rediscover it in Lost New York.
