Life With A Sprinkle Of Glitter

A couple of months ago I was lucky enough to go to the book signing of one of my favourite YouTubers, Louise Pentland, aka Sprinkle of Glitter. She is an extremely successful blogger, as well as a YouTuber with well over 2 million subscribers!

You just gotta love the front and back covers!

And as if she wasn't already successful enough, she only went and wrote a book called "Life With A Sprinkle Of Glitter", a title which I think is perfect. This book is simply filled with Louise's personality, from the aesthetic of it, to the content inside. I feel like I'm literally reading an extended version of her blog, and you lot know how much I love reading blog posts.

I still feel so blessed to have a signed copy

This book is divided into four sections which are as follows: 


This section is about the rather glamorous side to Louise. When I saw Louise in person at her book signing I must say that I was truly blown away by her beauty and glamour. Therefore, I'm so very grateful of her sharing her secrets in this section. I particularly like the fact that she talked about being able to pamper yourself  at home, knowing that it would be unrealistic to suggest to all her viewers to book a spa day to relax. This section includes:
  • Beauty and Pampering
  • Partying
  • Meeting Celebrities
  • The Art Of Shopping
  • Travelling in Style

This really allows the reader to get in touch with their inner creativity. It's really filled with cute little inspiration of ways to sparkle up your every day life with a bit of crafts. And I must say the "anti baking" chapter is the one for me in this book. This section includes:
  • Setting Up Home
  • Prettifying Your Room
  • Crafts
  • Anti-Baking
Need to knows:

It's so nice to read a sort of "survival guide" from someone you really admire who's been there and done that. I really appreciate that she wrote a chapter on bullying too, because she has such a large audience to who her book appeals to and it's important that they realise that bullying isn't tolerated in this society and that they're not going through it alone. I also think its fantastic that this section will help build up young girl's confidence. It's so important for girls to have a strong confident woman role model, and this is definitely Louise. She's able to give tips and advice to literally thousands of girls around the world on the following topics:
  • Surviving Education
  • Bullying
  • Online Safety
  • Body Confidence
  • Comfort Zones
All about love:

I really admire Louise for sharing personal stories about the likes of dating and her love life. I feel like I really learned more about her and also, I had a good ol' giggle at some of the stories! Also, the chapters about Darcy and spreading kindness melted my heart and left me in a really good mood. This section includes:
  • Boys and Lurve
  • Dating
  • Bonding With Baby
  • Being Kind
And finally, I have to say that I adore the whole look of the book. I hadn't seen it before I went to her signing and the moment it was handed out to me I kinda froze because I was able to hold something so adorable. The book's theme is pastel colours, which some of you may know are my favourite colours, and there is even a little touchy-feely pot of glitter on the front. It's such a great little touch to the cover (if you'll pardon the pun).

I can't even deal with the cuteness of the page designs 

I truly had a wonderful read out of this book and I constantly find myself going back to it. Whether it's to learn something new or as a little pick-me-up, I know that this book will have just what I'm looking for. I don't often give 10/10 on a review, but I honestly can't think what could be added to this book to make it better. Although I do feel like this book is aimed at the female population, I believe that this book would have something for everyone. If you haven't already got your hands on "Life With A Sprinkle Of Glitter" please get yourself a copy. Have any of you read this book, and if so what did you think of it?
