So as a lot of you may already know if you follow me on my Instagram or watch my videos that I recently picked up this beauty from Whsmiths. I’m sure the majority of you know who this lovely lady is if not I shall briefly introduce you to her. Louise or Sprinkle Of Glitter which most people know her by is a blogger and a YouTuber. She first started off writing a written blog which you can take a look at here and then went on to starting a channel which can be viewed here.
I don’t quite know where to start so I’ll start with this first of all the images I have chosen I mostly picked at random. This is because if you already own the book then you will know that each page is like a different piece of artwork. If you don’t own the book yet then I will tell you why each page or every few pages has a set theme or topic. The design of the pages therefore matches the theme or topic for example the page about “Uploading content” is based upon an image of a computer screen.
I am in love with the design of the book as I think it really makes the book fun to read. Nowadays many people don’t really read books and I think it helps ten times more if the book is appealing itself which this one is. The front of the book has different textures on it which is a really nice touch. The book itself is quite small and what I’d call perfect handbag size. I shall definitely be reading this on the way to work or when I’m travelling. I also really like the additional bookmark string thing that’s included because I usually fold the corners of my book over. I won’t be doing that to this book so don’t worry it’s too lovely to ruin!!
I like the fact that each page isn’t full of text because that can sometimes become overwhelming. The amount of text is just right and the balance between text and images is perfect. It makes it easy to read all in one go or a little bit at a time. There are six main categories which are all split up into smaller categories. These categories are Inside, Glitz, Create, Need To Knows, All About Love & Ending. Therefore this book is great for almost anyone as there is something for everyone. I myself will be reading the Glitz, Need To Knows and All About Love mostly whilst skimming the others as these categories most appeal to me.
The age range for this book would probably be 10 years above in my opinion I say above because even my mum enjoyed flicking through it and she’s almost 60!! It’s definitely a great gift for someone if you know they love Louise and doesn’t already own it. I have only skimmed it really so I can’t wait to sit down and read a few bits with a cup of tea.
I’m the type of person who could read a story book over a period of a few days but I have to read these types of books from time to time. For example I was able to read Zoe’s Girl Online book in just a few days. Whereas this book and Fleur’s The Glam Guide I’d probably read throughout my life coming back to re-read the useful tips for that period of my life.
Overall I am very pleased with this book as it’s injected that litte bit more glitter into my life. I can’t wait to fully read it and use the tips, tricks and advice given in the book to improve my own life. I know I will use this book to death whether it’s by using the DIY’s inside it to improve my room or try some of the anti-baking recipes. I’m especially looking forward to reading the travelling section as you all know how much I love to travel although I don’t do it as much as I would like to!!
Do you own the book? What do you think if you do?
