Fleur De Force's Glam Guide ♥♥♥ Book Review




I've had this book for a few months now, and had been reading it in bite-sized pieces.  Last night I decided to take some time for myself, and finish the last half.  I enjoyed this book, and gave it a 4 stars on Goodreads.

I absolutely love Fleur, and over the years she has become one of my favourite youtubers.  She seems incredibly down to earth, and has a wonderful mix of maturity, and whimsy.  The quality of her videos is spectacular, and it really seems like she is being genuine, and honest.  Her vlogs are some of my favourite, because she shows us a glimpse into her life as a wife, puppy momma, and tea-lover!

Highlights of the Guide

Beauty

My favourite part from the chapter on Beauty was the discussion of the colour wheel.  I have hazel eyes that have some brown, and some green, so this chapter gave me some great ideas for what shades would be the most flattering.

Health and Fitness

I pretty much loved this section in its entirety.  Reading about which foods are best for my skin was enlightening, but also positively reinforcing because I am already including a lot of those foods in my diet.  Especially avocados, because, YUM!  There are also recipes in this section, and I want to try the baked egg inside of an avocado.

Life, Love, Dreams, and Everything in Between

Fleur's writings on positive thinking were very practical, and uplifting.  This is a great example of how relatable she is, because I am sure every person on the planet could benefits from these tips, and have experienced the same concerns with negative thinking.

The Art

The real hero of this book is the art.  Many of the pages have beautiful sketches which are a combination of black, and white tones, and a pop of colour.  The colours chosen for this book are stunning, with a lot of soft, water colours.



I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a light, enjoyable read.  I learned some interesting things from this book, but more importantly, it was an opportunity for me to just sit down, and indulgently reflect on all things beauty, and lifestyle.  You can hear Fleur's voice come through clearly throughout, as she wrote this book herself.  This would make an awesome coffee table book, because each section is quick, and accessible.  The book itself looks gorgeous from the outside, so having it out for people to look at would be fun.

I am just starting Love, Tanya, by Tanya Burr, and I will let you guys know what I think of that as well!
