Love Thy Body – Real Life Stories – LAUNCHES MONDAY 16th NOVEMBER 2020!

With Love Thy Body Project co-founders Serena Novelli, Laura Bland and Ana Bonasera.

Serena Novelli, Laura Bland and Ana Bonasera are out to change the world by empowering women to love the skin they are in.

23 real women, one of whom is Chinnor based, Jemma Stevens, share their stories of overcoming life’s challenges in a new collaboration book.

All too often women grow up feeling that they are not enough – not smart enough, not slim enough, not pretty enough, the list goes on. Love Thy Body Project was founded in September 2019 with the focus of helping women across the globe to step into their power and be true to themselves.

Utilising workshops, both online and in person (pre-covid), live trainings via social media, blogs, radio interviews, magazine interviews and more, Serena, Laura and Ana have already been able to reach out and help thousands of women. With a combined social media following of over 22,000 their aim is to continue to grow and make waves in the world of self-love and body confidence.

Life is never simple or straight forward, we all experience ups and downs, we each have different challenges and we each deal with them differently. In the first of what will be a series of books Serena, Laura and Ana help 23 inspirational women to share their stories.

Jemma Stevens

Jemma Stevens comments,

“Having lost 9 stone in weight, which I have maintained for more than 4 years now, I feel more confident in my own skin than ever. So much so that I now run my own health and wellness business Flawsome Jem where I share my love of CBD and Hemp and the many health benefits it has with my clients to help them achieve their own health goals. Being part of this book collaboration has allowed me to share my story, alongside 22 other hugely inspirational women and i’m so honoured to be a part of it. We hope that our stories resonate with our readers and that through reading all of our very different and unique journeys you too can learn to truly gain self-acceptance and love the skin you’re in!”

My book that I’m Co-Authoring with 23 wonderful ladies in Love Thy Body Project. Real Life Stories Volume 1.

The book is unique, Love Thy Body Project is unique, my story is unique, our mission is to support, inspire and bring hope to others which for me this is bringing the sunshine into the room.

This is not your average book and is not a simple case of learning to love and appreciate perceived flaws. Within this book there are 23 unique stories covering mental health issues, domestic abuse, surviving cancer, overcoming the body’s own perceived failings, childhood bullying and so much more.

23 amazing women have bonded, lifted each other up and held space for each other as they shared their writing journey. Most of these ladies have never embarked on a project like this before. They have now bared their soul to empower, inspire, uplift and support other women.

The book is due to be released mid November 2020 in both Kindle and paperback format.

Previously featured in/on: BBC Radio Leicester, BBC Radio Oxford, The Loughborough Echo, The Leicester Mercury, Elastic FM, How To Look Good Naked, Fit and Well Magazine, Fabulous Magazine, Best, BBC Oxford News, Solihull Radio, plus many more.
