A book review! Treasure Yourself: Power Thoughts for My Generation by Miranda Kerr 

It would be too easy to give this book a bad review for being another book by another supermodel. Yes – the cover is pink and features a pouty Miranda – and the title is a bit naff. But the truth is I like this book. I read TREASURE YOURSELF:  Power Thoughts for My Generation  by Miranda Kerr as a prequel to the more recently published EMPOWER YOURSELF which came out in 2014.
