Life Lessons from the future Queen Esther


ESTHER HEADING

The Book of Esther is an exciting account which gives us insight into God’s remarkable  and purposeful plan for our lives. The story gives us some powerful lessons about courage, divine timing and God’s love. As The Old Testament reveals, Esther is a Jewish woman living in Persia and brought up by her cousin, Mordecai. She was taken to the King of the Persian Empire to be his concubine—but because he believed there was unique about Esther, he made her queen. However, Mordecai didn’t tell the king about a primary concern —Esther was of Jewish heritage.

4 Brilliant British Books to buy


The following books that I recommend won’t be an entire book review, but merely just enough information for you to peruse, to see if you would like it, or if you want to read it. I have read the books thoroughly, and have decided to write down bits and pieces that I like, and what you might find interesting, or have just written enough information for you to decide whether you would like to buy it or not!

Here are four brilliant british books to buy:

1. Our Queen by Robert Hardman

In Britain, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is not just the longest reigning monarch in history, but is a red-double decker bus with two legs, and Prince William says ‘she’s incredible’. She works hard professionally and this book is an in-depth study and portrait of our Queen today.

“It is a study of a thoroughly modern monarch.” – (Introduction, page 3)

Chapter 1 talks about her achievements  – It opens up with this statement – “She’s really determined to finish everything she started”. I honestly thought that is an excellent statement to describe the working life of a monarch.

She is the most popular figure in British public life and is emblematic about the ‘Old Britain’ and the New Britain, and being devoted to the Church of England, and the Commonwealth, historians see it as one of her greatest achievements.

I particularly liked how it said about her taking her ‘nation’ role very seriously, just as her coronation vow to preserve the settlement of the church of England. Consider this statement:

“The Sovereign acts as a focus for national identity, unity and pride; gives a sense of stability and continuity; officially recognises success and excellence, and supports the ideal of voluntary service.”

William Shawcross of the Evening Standard says about the book “Hardler is the best chronicler of the monarchy writing in the British press today, superbly well-informed, witty and wise.”

One thing I didn’t know was that when she visited the British Office of Google in 2008, her private secretary came up with an idea of using her head on their website. So, for one day only, the second G on google’s website was replaced with the Sovereign’s head. How cool is that? I wish I had’ve seen that back then!

 


With some Queen Victoria green tea, which I am trying to drink more of instead of Lipton tea, which is apparently not as good for you than chamomile or any other herbal tea, it is completely invigorating for the senses. ☕️ but I have become obsessed with PG Tips, especially after knowing it is Julie Andrews favourite tea. I bought it to try it out, and I can see why she loves it!

90 Years of Style


   

 

To celebrate 90 years of Queen Elizabeth the Second’s life, I have collated pictures of her style and fashion throughout her reign.

  

She was known as one of the worlds most glamorous women in 2007 by British Vogue.

In this pretty pink number, the Queen stepped out in Bombay during the Royal Tour of India, January 1961.

  

Over the years, the Queen has become famous for wearing bright, block colours, pearl necklaces, pristine white gloves, headscarves and plaid skirts.

 Now her style is absolutely iconic, with her Launer handbags instantly recognisable and synonymous with her and Dolce & Gabbana basing an entire collection around her signature looks.

  

Queen Elizabeth II at the christening of Prince George, October 2013.

 Queen Elizabeth attends the ceremonial funeral service of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher at St Paul’s Cathedral. Black is always CLASSIC! So, even if it wasn’t for a funeral, I think this look would look great to any occasion. 

  

This is probably a favourite as I LOVE the colour purple!!!! Here, Queen Elizabeth II visits the National centre for Bowel Cancer research, and surgical Innovation, after opening the new Royal London Hospital building.

 

And here she is with her sister…..

I’ve added a few more favourite photos, just for fun!!!! 

   

   
  

  
  

  
  

I especially love this outfit, the colour and the pearls give a soft touch and I always am the type to wear pearls to every event I go to! Yep! I’m a pearl kind of girl!!!! Just something about it is so classy! 

The Queen knows how to dress consistently, and has excellent taste in all things fashion! She picks the right colours at the right time and she always looks so immaculate wherever she goes! And I love that about her!!!! 

   
 

I hope you have enjoyed the photos. I wanted you to mainly enjoy the photos, as there’s no particular order. I don’t have the fashion in year order or alphabetical order, but it is to just mainly ENJOY the photos!!!! 

AND the FASHION!!!!!
