introducing my debut book – evergreen

27th July 2023
The wait is finally over...

After spending numerous evenings and flights glued to my laptop and tiptoeing around my “secret project” for what has felt like months now, I am so excited to finally share that I HAVE WRITTEN A BOOK and it’s being published here in the UK on October 12th!!

Pre-Order my debut book Evergreen here

If you’ve followed my journey for a while now, you’ll know that I’ve spent the past few years transforming my lifestyle and mindset after coming to the realisation that I’d spent my entire life up until that point, misunderstanding success and overlooking the natural beauty infront of me. Though that journey has led me to a destination that now provides me with an abundance of daily contentment and courage, that feels easy to access these days (if I look for it) the journey itself was anything but effortless…

Which is why I’ve felt drawn to sharing these thoughts now. 

After three years of sitting with and observing them in my head; interrogating them with those that I trust (and seeking a few expert opinions along the way); processing the lessons, putting them into practice and witnessing the progress first-hand, I’m so much stronger today than I was this time three years ago…

So felt like if ever there was a time to write a book, it’s now.

With that in mind…

“Inspired by the wisdom of the natural world, Evergreen is the essential guide for anyone who is looking to unearth their inner strength and bring more joy and contentment into their everyday.

Drawing on the journey that I’ve been on over the past three years, season by season, Evergreen offers practical advice and ideas that will inspire you to reconnect with nature, follow what you truly desire deep down and channel your inner strength throughout life’s inevitable ebbs and flows. From learning to fall in love with nature to embracing the power of amateur status, rethinking your relationship with comparison to embracing solitude when you need it, Evergreen will take you by the hand and empower you with the tools to pursue your own version of an evergreen life in the days and months ahead.

Whether Evergreen finds you at a time of peace and fulfilment or a time of challenge and uncertainty, this is a book that will uplift you with a fresh perspective and be a comfort you can return to at every age and stage of your journey to come.”

 

It speaks the words that I wish my teenage self, my twenties self, and early thirties Lydia could have heard.

It provides the hug that I wish those versions of me could have felt.

And despite having done a few things throughout my career that I’m truly proud of, it is without a shadow of doubt my proudest accomplishment to date.

I can not wait to share it with you in October – Let the countdown commence!

    Dear Lydia,

    As I live in Germany, I would love to get a signed book copy. Unfortunately I can’t add that information on the bookstore side. Could you please help me out how to get a signed copy as I would like to get it for myself as a belated birthday gift.
    Thank you very much in advance for your help and the extra mile with my request! Warmest regards, Verica

    Hi form the States! I’m watching the video where you find out your book is going to be in Harrods. I tried to order one of the signed copies from Jaffe and Neal but was unsuccessful. When checking Amazon it’s stated pre-order is available for March of 2024. Any suggestions on how to order the book sooner than then? Have a a but of travel planned and would love to have Evergreen with me.

    Hi Lydia,
    It’s my partner Louise’s birthday on the 2nd October and she’s a massive fan of your YouTube channel. I was hoping to buy her a signed copy of your new book but I see the offer for signed editions on Jaffé & Neale has now closed.
    Are you able to sign and dedicate a copy to Louise and I pay you direct, or is there any other way?
    Many thanks
    Mark

Hello April, the most exciting month of them all!
Ad Embarking on a journey of timeless treasures, my passion for antiquing began in the warmth of late summer 2019. When I discovered my father’s old boarding school tuck trunk nestled in the attic of their home. Since then, my weekends have unfolded like chapters in a novel, meandering through antiques emporiums and brocantes across the country.

Each trip unveils a tapestry of tales from bygone eras - from weathered pickling jars and vases to opulent French chandeliers and steamer trunks, and with each trip, I was captivated by the hidden secrets and untold histories woven into each artefact.

Immerse yourself in the zesty allure of Emerald Thyme, or indulge in the spicy nostalgia of Ginger Beer, where notes of ginger, roasted oak, and cinnamon intertwine to evoke memories of British antiques markets.
