Kim Coles host New Year New You Fashion Show at Macy's and introduces her new book, Gratitude Journal. Kim Coles, is perhaps best known for portraying the lovable and naive character of Synclaire James on the Fox network show Living Single. She is also a comedienne, television personality, and an author. Her latest book is titled the Gratitude Journal and it is best described as a workbook for becoming more appreciative of your life. The effortlessly funny lady has joined forces with Macy's to promote the new book. While at Macy's Lenox in the Women's Department I had a moment to dish with Kim about the new book and find out a little more about this star's exciting personal journey.

Star Style- Kim Coles admits that she loves make-up. Which probably explains why her make-up is always flawless. The star's personal style is relaxed and comfortable. You can tell the popular actress is confident and it shows in her polished appearance. For this event Kim sported an abstract print top and black pants from Macy's with silver jewelry accessories.

New Year New You Fashion Show- During a recent event at Macy's Lenox Square Kim Coles served as host for a New Year New You Fashion Show. Since the star is the first to tell you she no longer dons high heels you will not see her walking the runway. However, she is capable of lighting up any stage with her professional comedic timing. While hosting the show Kim offered up bits of sound advice for starting off the new year with a new look. The show was the perfect accompaniment for the Gratitude Journal and ladies received a free autographed copy of the book with a purchase of $75 dollars from Macy's.

Gratitude Journal- This book is actually a part of a G.I.F.T.S. series. The G.I.F.T.S. series focuses on gratitude, intention, forgiveness, triumphs, and self-love. These are all virtually keys to create a better spirit and develop a better understanding of your purpose in life. The first series Gratitude incorporates the model of taking an inner-look at things you are grateful for over a certain time period. It is definitely a great book to keep handy in your purse. You will find meaningful quotes and thought-provoking tactics to develop a deeper understanding of being gracious. Along with talking about the exciting new book Kim revealed a little about her own personal journey.

Natural Hair- The star was refreshingly honest and admitted the book started because she was going through a moment in life when she was depressed. Like most women she was down about typical problems ranging from career woes to hair styles. As a matter of fact when I asked about hair choices Kim replied, " I decided to go natural because I always felt like I was running away from my own hair!"

Gratitude Journal- Well, she took advice from a mentor about creating a gratitude journal and the results were so positive she decided to share some tips inside the book. With such positive energy radiating in the room I had to know what fears if any she had. The down-to-earth star paused for a minute, then replied somberly, "Worry and concern are the fears that keep me going!" She further revealed that when she is concerned is when she pays attention and that's one of the things that keeps her going. Well, with such a welcoming personality I am excited to see the next book in the series and I definitely think this book is a must-have to add to your list of books to read.
