I have read many books and there is no one that has described our every day health and skin issues in 'plain english' like Libby does. I rate this book 5/5 and I think it should be a staple in every house hold.
If you are a woman that wants more - no - NEEDS more in her life. You want to achieve something, do better, be better. Hell you may want to start up your own bussines, loose weight or write a book. BUT... you cant make that first step. Then babe this book is you for you.
Thank you, Hayley, for the opportunity to share a bit of a story with this awesome community.
Thirty years ago, I was with a group of colleagues who had decided to swim across a reservoir. Roughly half way across, I took a dive, and got entangled in the plant life on the bottom.
The more I struggled, the more stuck I was. Could see no escape. I was terrified and alone.
Here’s the thing; one of the guys on the boat happened to be looking in the right direction at the right time; spotted me go down, spotted I wasn’t coming up again.
So I heard afterwards
- without hesitation, he leaped in, swam to where I was trapped, and the next moment, a strong arm was around me, dragging me to the surface, pulling me to the safety of that boat.
Not for him, I wouldn’t be here today, and nor would my children... Which I always find quite an uncanny thought. Over the years since that happened, probably not a week has gone by that I don’t think of him, and that, when I was stuck in the depths, someone spotted me, and pulled me out.
That’s a big part of why I do what I do. And that’s why we’ve all got to keep doing what we’re doing; scanning the surface, noticing, and not hesitating.
I hear a lot of “If you’re struggling, reach out.” We all need to hear and know that.
But it’s not the only answer.
Sometimes it’s not that easy. Putting down the device, making time to visit a friend, colleague or relative you’ve perhaps not seen for a while, or who you’ve noticed might be slipping under the surface – that’s the magic.

I was recently at my friend Michelle Yandles Well Fed event held here in Taranaki (you must all go see it come 2020) - and one of the guest speakers was Lara Briden. I personally got diagnosed with PCOS at the age of 18 and have learned a lot since about my body.But listening to Lara speak BLEW MY MIND - and really got me excited to get her book.
A smart lady - lots of experience in clinic / but most of all she just makes sense! If are a girl - teenager - woman...this book really is a must. I cant wait for you all to read it and change your life.
