When it comes to reading, I am far from a book worm and my idea of reading is blog posts and online articles, but there is something about a good hard back, paper book that really appeals to me, keep reading and discover my 5 current favourites…
This is the perfect time to get stuck into a good book, the weather is getting colder and it’s the season for snuggles on the sofa with book and cup of tea at hand. Recently I have really got my head stuck into a few books. Because I read a huge amount of blogs, which you could say are non-fiction in reality, non-fiction books really appeal to me with lifestyle and day to day themes.
Alexa Chung – It
This book must have appeared on every beauty bloggers Instagram, Blog and Twitter since last year and for good reason. Yeah this is a little bit of a female orientated book but never the less, full of life long inspiration about fashion, relationships, taking the ultimate selfie and all round life advice. With a clever and witty humour in her writing style, Alexa has taken her experience writing for Vouge and pushed all her creativity into this amazing book.
#GirlBoss – Sophia Amoruso
This is a new edition to my book shelf, again, another female orientated (girly) book, but as always it’s the message you take from the book rather than the pink cover and feminine title. I could say don’t judge a book by it’s cover but that would be faaaaaaaaar too cliché. SO……
