I’ve been a big fan of Fleur de Force for a while now and I know that this year has truly been the explosion of YouTuber’s writing books and while this has seriously annoyed some people, I for one am just excited to have gotten more content from some of my favourite YouTubers. This is basically what Fleur’s channel is, in book form. There’s beauty and fashion and fitness and lifestyle and it’s a really nice selection of various topics with something for everyone. This is the kind of book that you can read from cover to cover but you can also easily flick through and just read the sections that grab your interest at the time. Some of the time the writing was a little cringe-worthy but that’s just the style of an easy to read non-fiction like this.
Fleur de Force started making YouTube videos in 2009 out of a passion for everything beauty and fashion related. What began as a fun hobby quickly turned into something much bigger, and she’s spent the past five years seeking out the best products, top tips and easiest ways for us all to look and feel more fabulous. In The Glam Guide she shares all of her secrets and discoveries so whether you’re looking for makeup tips, wardrobe cheats, first-date pointers or healthy lifestyle motivation, this is the book for you.
This book was beautifully set out and I really loved all the visual effects that had gone into making this book. The colours and the photos that were chosen really added something to the book making it interesting to read as well as look at. I’d give this book a 4 out of 5 stars because it was enjoyable and entertaining and offered some genuinely useful information as well as being pretty to look at.
