Fleur de Force - The Glam Guide

Fleur De Force The Glam Guide
In recent months there has been somewhat of a flurry of book launches from a number of bloggers and YouTubers of which whilst I'd be lying if I had said I wasn't interested there was ever only going to be one which I'd pick up. I've been a huge fan of Fleur from Fleur de Force for a rather long time now therefore it seemed only natural for me to want to be able to support her in my own little way by picking up her book, that being The Glam Guide.

From the water colour designs and illustrations to the well thought out chapters and tutorials; it's clear to all those that pick The Glam Guide up that a lot of time and effort has gone into it. I wasn't too sure what to expect when I first heard about it however I was super excited to see it in my local book store having watched Fleur update those who watch her channel about its progress over the months in which it was being written. I can't quite imagine how it must have felt for her to hold her very own copy after all of that time. 
Fleur De Force The Glam Guide

With an array of chapters covering beauty and fashion to more personal topics such as health, fitness and love I think it's a great book that so many people can relate to and indeed learn from. Whilst I think some of the beauty content is relatively simple I know that I personally can still learn from it; take for instance eye liner. You would think that at the age of 25 having being wearing eye liner since my emo days (those were the day's guys) that I would have cracked it by now yet alas to this it still manages to me leave me in a bit of a bother in the morning , therefore I'm more than happy to read new advice where that is concerned.

I guess for myself personally I didn't buy this to use as a beauty guide, I picked it up because quite simply blogging and the world of YouTube is something that I absolutely adore. Whilst A Little Boat Sailing will never be in that league I find it so incredibly amazing that through hard work and dedication that people are able to produce things like this because in my opinion a book of your very own is pretty darn awesome!

  2. Haha I feel the same way about eyeliner. I've been practising it for 6 years now, why aren't I any good at it?! I haven't bought Fleur's book but I did buy Tanya Burr's - not because I wanted any beauty tips but because I've been following her for years and I think it's so cool that she has a book!

  9. This looks like such a beautifully presented book! I really like Fleur too :)
    I am also a massive fail at eyeliner, it was so badly applied back in my emo days that I don't think that really counts as experience though haha
