I bet you just sung the title of this blog post pretending to be in the sound of music because I sure do every time I read it....
The most precious thing for me at the moment is time/space. Time for myself and space for myself.
I am one of those people who is perfectly happy with there own company, I don't personally need loads of friends and to be with them 24/7 to know that they are there for me. I just have a few super close friends that I know with a text or just a little sign they are there for me but we all know loads of people and they're automatically classed as a friend, well according to Facebook any way.
So today I thought I would share with you one of my most used me time favourites, so here are a few of most favourite books. I'm saying a few because you know we don't have all day, even though I wish cause I think finding cute and interesting reads are my favourite thing lately.
Bloom- Navigating life and style
Bloom is my most recent addition to my book shelf. Also a very pretty addition to my book shelf. I've been following Estee lalonde on youtube for a few years now and I am completely in love with her video styles, her way of taking on life and the way she is navigating life. The first chapter of bloom has been a huge eye opener to me as I never realised that Estee suffered from mental health issues and I feel that it is great that she has opened up about it in her book. I feel that this was a book I really need to read right now in this point of time in my life.
I am absolutely adoring this book so far and i'm sure it will continue as I get deeper into it. Estee is such an inspiring women to every women out there and I'm loving reading about her day to day life, the honesty and the struggles she has faced along the way. The style of this book was just like one of her videos and I love itttt.
Basically if you don't have a copy yet you need one!
Another one of my favourites for sure is wildflower by Drew Barrymore. She is not only one of my all time favourite actresses but also one of my fave writers. This book for me was really eye opening as I didn't really know that much about her up bringing and how different her life really was when she was younger.
I loved her style of writing in this book with every chapter being something different and from jumping from one life story to another, I felt like it really kept my attention through the whole book. I guess it is more of a book of a collection of short stories that skipped around Drews life. You can totally see that this book was written by Drew and you can really see her style in the organisation of the book from her free spirit.
Julie and Julia-Julie Powell
So a few months ago my Nan got given a suitcase full of books that she was left after someone she knew had passed away. She kept all the books that she wanted and brought them around for me to have a look and see if there was any that I wanted to read and I choose this book. Oh boy am I glad that I choose this book. It just makes me either want to cook all the recipes in my favourite cook book or write my own cook book. It has also shown me that I need to create goals with a dead line whether it is short term or long term or big or small goals.
My mum also bought the film for me, as a 'valentines day' present and I watched it this morning and Loved it. I definitely recommend this book to you but if you're not really a reader you should definitely watch the film or do both.
How to be Parisian- Wherever you are
If you know me well, you'll know that I have this huge love for France, especially Paris!
One of my best friends bought me this book for my birthday and I Love it! Its a real eye opening book showing the different way Parisians live there lives, Its a fun and spiritual take on what it really means to be a Parisian in the 21st century.
This book is written by four modern day Parisienne's who take you through first dates, parties and much more.
This is a very funny read and I instantly felt chicer and witter. By the end I was laughing out loud.
It- Alexa Chung
I have always been a huge fan of Alexa chung I love her style and chicness (is that even a word).
This is quite a picture filled book which I also love. Picture books are always at the top of my list hehe.
This is a great insight into Alexa's life, she shares her personal inspiration, music and sense of style. It is also quite a short book and you can read it pretty quick,which I feel is great if you're on a train or a short haul flight.
But I generally really enjoyed reading this short little insight into Alexas life!
I would love for you to share with me what your favourite books are at the moment.
let me know in the comments.
Have a great week!
