Through her struggle and triumph you will be uplifted and encouraged to find hope in your own journey so that you can also stand tall in the face of adversity and find your voice.

Weddings saved my life. Literally.
From the time I was a broke university student, to the time I was diagnosed with the Big C and given months to live, even when my own marriage failed...weddings saved my life. The love that connects us all is what fuels my purpose in this crazy world.
How did weddings save my life? I'm a wedding planner. I happen to be really freakin' good at it. Even when I'm knee-deep in a torrential downpour while setting up an outdoor wedding, elbows-deep in a bride's dress solving a red wine stain debacle, or managing every little detail in some far-flung locale...I've got this handled.
Because that's life, people. And weddings, like life, NEVER go as planned. Shit happens a lot. But, it's all in how you handle it.
With over 15 years in the industry, hundreds of weddings planned all over the world, and more lives than a cat, I'm here to share my story in the hopes that it inspires you in some way to show up in your life, get out of your own way, and love.
Cheers to changing the world, one marriage at a time...
Everything I Couldn’t Tell My Mother is a coming-of-age story for any woman who has ever questioned her sexual maturity and readiness, stayed silent at a time when she should have spoken up or accepted treatment that was less than what she deserved.
Aaliyah Panarese is the teenage daughter of successful, overprotective parents who want the best for her but rarely consider her hopes and dreams. Under the matriarchal rules of her abusive mother, Aaliyah is expected to, without question, follow in her footsteps and attend law school after she graduates from high school.
Frustrated and too cowardly to express her dreams of becoming a writer, she escapes life’s harsh realities by journaling heartfelt letters to her mother inside a diary, hoping that one day they will be the keys to rebuilding trust and strengthening the emotional connection that is lacking between them.
In a desperate attempt to nd her voice, and feel accepted and loved, she befriends Stacy, Tonja and Manny—the most rebellious girls at her school. Aaliyah follows the crowd, breaks her parents’ rules and is quickly thrown into a battleeld marked with peer pressure, self-loathing, sexual discovery and broken friendships. Her journey takes dramatic twists and turns while delivering a cautionary tale that is grounded in the reality of what it is to be a teenager in today’s instant-access generation.

Life is full of messages guiding us in the direction of our purpose, but most of us are waiting to get hit in the face with a blinding signal saying ‘THIS IS A SIGN!’.
I hate to break it to you, but it doesn’t work like that. Hailing from a small town in England, growing up with anxiety, depression, a learning disability and Spirit for friends, Emma Smallbone spent her whole life trying to figure out who she was and why she could see dead people. After meeting her soul mate, building an extremely successful photography business and becoming a mum, Emma started to explore spirituality as a way of living instead of a cool party trick.
By studying her unique gift instead of ignoring it for the first time in her life, Emma opened up a whole new world full of communication with the afterlife, exposing her ability to heal people in need of guidance and closure through communication with loved ones they have lost. In this book Emma tells the story of her evolution as a medium and an empath, finding her true purpose and how you too, can let Spirit in... one step at a time.
"My work is to be a messenger, to connect you with your loved ones, deliver the message you need to hear and strengthen your bond with the spiritual world by proving that love is eternal. There are no boundaries. You just have to pay attention."
Join Emma in The Barefoot Medium as she explores 10 valuable lessons you can apply in your own life to connect with Spirit, create a life you love and CHOOSE happiness.
The truth is it's all YOU- Your fears, your worries your doubts and your beliefs. Your inner bitch, Betty has been busy gathering evidence and building proof around some silly ideas you picked up that have now become the so-called 'truth' for you. One Question... How's that working for you?
It wasn't working for Marnie Kay and after one life-changing event she was forced to question the things she has always simply known and accepted to be true. What if they weren't true? What else is now possible?
Her need to understand how we work and how we can become the creator of our lives instead of the witness has led her on a mission to share one simple truth with the world; Belief is the KILLER and the KEY. The beauty is you get to choose. It all starts with what we think and the stories we tell ourselves.
The good news is you are not a shoe. One of our many fabulous human qualities is the intellectual ability to choose what we think about. So why don't we? Why do we choose the stories that suck?
In Belief Is The New Black, Marnie aims to share with you...
1.WHY YOU ARE YOUR ONLY PROBLEM. EVER.
2. HOW YOUR BELIEFS RULE YOUR WORLD. LITERALLY.
3. WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT. NOW.
Join Marnie on this personal journey of love, strength, heartbreak and humor in understanding our beliefs about ourselves, life, love money (and everything in between) and how to get them working FOR us instead of AGAINST us.
YOU are also your only solution.
Belief is everything, everything is belief.
