Book Haul | November 2016


As much as I love getting sucked into a great novel, I've always loved Fashion books. I find them so inspiring and creative and they just make me want to get up and really do something amazing with my life. Fashion is a big part of my life and Fashion Business is something that really I would really love to study in the future. I've had my on these books for a while now so as soon as pay day came I went for a trip to Waterstones to pick them up. Niomi's book "Eat Smart" is also a book I've been lusting over for a while now as I really want to include some vegan meals into my diet so I'm super happy about this purchase! I've only just got these books I'm just going to talk a little bit about them and then do a full review and opinions post later on.


How To Be Parisian: These modern Parisiennes say what you don't expect to hear, just the way you want to hear it. They are not against smoking in bed, and all for art, politics and culture, making everything look easy, and going against the grain. They will take you on a first date, to a party and through a hangover. They will tell you how to be mysterious and sensual, make your boyfriend jealous, the right way to approach weddings and the gym, and they will share their address book in Paris for where to go at the end of the night, for a birthday, for a smart date, for vintage finds and much more.

Alexa Chung - IT: This is a one-off collection of Alexa Chung's writing, doodles and photographs combines stories of early inspirations such as her grandpa and the Spice Girls with discussion of figures of obsession like Jane Birkin and Annie Hall, reflecting on heartbreak, how to get dressed in the morning, the challenges of taking a good selfie, and more. Interspersed with pages from Alexa's notebooks and many a photo of a good night out, It is now perfectly sized for any bag - handbag or otherwise. Witty, charming and with a refreshingly down-to-earth attitude, It is a must-have for anyone who loves fashion, worries about growing up, or loves just about everything Alexa Chung.

Eat Smart: Already an online phenomenon, Niomi creates recipes for anyone who wants to feel amazing from the inside out, covering: breakfasts, lunches, dinners, desserts, snacks, baked treats and drinks, she offers a really easy way to eat delicious, healthy food at every mealtime. Wake up to a Tropical Smoothie Bowl, for example, whip up a Roasted Fennel, Lentil and Fig Salad for lunch, and finish off the day with a Mauritian Curry with Coconut and Coriander Rice, inspired by her travels. And with plenty of snacks and desserts to feast on too – try Niomi’s Beetroot Cake with Chocolate Ganache or a Salted Caramel Ice Cream – you’ll be surprised just how delicious eating smart can be.
