I would say that beauty products, books and clothes are my favourite things to buy and I can spend hours wondering around Waterstones, Topshop and Space NK alike. So when it comes to books all about beauty and fashion, I just can’t control myself! 

I feel like there are so many beauty, fashion and lifestyle books on the shelves at the moment that I am dying to get my hands on. I love to read about beauty, and although there are some amazing bloggers that I follow online, sometimes it is nice to have a book to flick through on a Sunday afternoon with a hot cup of coffee. I also love to read books on fashion, and I have been loving this current craze all about capsule wardrobes and minimalism I have just finished reading Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying from cover to cover, and I feel so inspired to streamline my wardrobe, beauty stash and life in general. 

I was wondering around my local Waterstones the other day when I had a quick half hour to kill and found some amazing books that I think would be fantastic reads. Keep reading to find out what’s on my beauty and fashion book reading/shopping/wish list…
