Review of Life with a Sprinkle of Glitter

Title: Life with a Sprinkle of Glitter
Author: Louise Pentland
Imagine you are in one of those glorious vintage shops where every surface is laden with treasure. 

Cut glass, pill boxes, old cameras, pendants, chests of drawers and stacks and stacks of books. This book is like that. Each chapter is one of those gem encrusted tins that you can open, peep inside and enjoy. You can either methodically wander the entire shop, looking at each individual item in order, or, you can dance around with wild abandon, opening and closing whatever you like, whenever you like. 

You can take in tiny bits of it at a time or you can devour it all in one go. I don't mind. I don't mind how you go about it; all that matters to me is that you take something from it. Divided into four sections: Glitz, Create, Need to Knows and All About Love , you'll find all my little tips and tricks, stories and insights and nuggets of advice. 

I want you to walk away from this book feeling uplifted. I want you to feel as though you are equipped to deal with something in your life and deal with it in the best possible, positive way. I want to show you how I find so much joy and enrichment in my life and how you can do it too, with just a Sprinkle of Glitter.

My Review:
When I got this book delivered to my house I was incredibly excited; I am a huge fan of Louise and as soon as I knew she was releasing a book, I had to have it. It's actually smaller than I expected but each page is beautifully crafted and completely different from the last.
There is no pressure to read this book from cover to cover (although I did), you can dip in and out to read the bits the you would like. 
The book is almost like a guide to life - it talks about beauty, confidence, love, DIY and more. It really does cover everything. Although the book has advice and tips, it doesn't feel boring or like instructions. Louise's voice really does come through strongly and throughout the book it is almost as if Louise is talking to you.
Her sense of humour, kindness and love really does come through when reading and it gives a warm, cosy glow inside. The book almost feels like a comfort and I can definitely see myself reading chapter again and again. 

Overall, I really enjoyed this read. It was helpful yet entertaining at the same time. The narration is like Louise is talking to you and each page is absolutely stunning! I would highly recommend.

New Books #1


Apologies for the lack of posts recently, school has been incredibly hectic recently. Today, I thought I would change things up a bit and start a new series where I show you the new books I have recently bought. 

As it is summer, these books are not exactly the most complex/ intricate reads but when it's sunny you want a nice and easy book to flick through. 

From top to bottom I got;
  • My Secret Rockstar Boyfriend - Eleanor Wood
  • Paper Towns - John Green
  • Love at Second Sight - Cathy Hopkins
  • Perfect Timing - Jill Marsell
  • To all the Boys I'ved Loved Before - Jenny Han
  • Life with a Sprinkle of Glitter - Louise Pentland
  • It Started with Paris - Cathy Kelly

Those are the books I have acquired in the last week or so. What books have you been picking up?

You can only eat one cuisine type for the rest of your life. Which would you choose? (E.g. Italian, French, Greek, Mexican, Chinese, Indian etc…) 

This week's question is hard! I do really like pasta, yet I have a soft spot for lemon chicken. Maybe I'll stick to English as it means I get a roast dinner and Yorkshire puddings are my favourite things ever!
