Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 6, 2007
Expert Image Consultant and author of newly released book, With Style and Amazing Grace, Aleysha R. Proctor, is boldly shattering long-standing myths and stereotypes, while redefining the way women perceive beauty forever. She is turning on its ear the notion that women are defined by what they look like on the outside, and replacing it with a more balanced approach. Her book and accompanying journal can be found and purchased at http://www.withstyleandamazinggrace.com.
At a time when celebrity worship and unrealistic beauty standards are the order of the day, millions of women throughout the U.S. are left feeling inadequate, insecure, and insignificant. This comes as no surprise. According to the Media Awareness Network, researchers report that women's magazines have ten and one-half times more ads and articles promoting weight loss than men's magazines do, and over three-quarters of the covers of women's magazines include at least one message about how to change a woman's bodily appearance--by diet, exercise or cosmetic surgery.
"Far too many women suffer from low self-esteem," says Proctor. "Unfortunately, they don't see their own worth." This is precisely why she's using With Style and Amazing Grace as a tool to aggressively challenge negatively skewed and unhealthy views of beauty. "I want women to realize that beauty begins on the inside and then manifests on the outside," says Proctor.
Make no mistake. In her attempts to nurture inward beauty, she by no means neglects outward beauty-- Au contraire, Proctor shares her exclusive insider advice on how to make an entire wardrobe from only ten items of clothing. Plus, she reveals to women exactly how to maximize their beauty potential, by understanding the best ways to make the most flattering style choices.
Proctor's message is catching on with an international audience of women. With Style and Amazing Grace will be featured in the brand new August Issue of Empowering Everyday Women Online Magazine, the premier online magazine for African American Christian women. She will be sharing her "Top 10 Best Beauty Tips of the Year," with thousands of EEW Magazine readers. To get her elegant style and beauty advice, log onto http://www.eewmagazine.com beginning August 6, 2007.
"Her warm, fun, reader-friendly style make With Style and Amazing Grace a delight to read," say editorial reviewers at EEW Magazine. The book thoroughly addresses the ins and outs of what it takes for women to achieve optimal levels of beauty, happiness, and fulfillment.
Never one-dimensional in her approach, Proctor also gives sound advice on how to nurture and enhance spiritual beauty, to ensure that the inside matches the outside. Her practical expertise is skillfully interwoven with spiritual wisdom, resulting in a refreshingly balanced and holistic view of beauty.
"Aleysha Proctor shows [you] how to make your inner beauty shine through. With chapters on leadership, excellence and having humanity, this is a book full of the practical wisdom of an author who lives her philosophy," say reviewers at Xlibris Publishing. Its rich contents are sure to have women turning pages and turning heads. "Beauty meets spiritual self-help," is the perfect way to describe With Style and Amazing Grace.
