Isn't this gray winter Saturday just perfect to talk about my little recent favourites?! I believe it is and as I'm such a big book nerd and reading lover, I came up with an idea to let you all know which books are my faves at the moment.
I love bookstores and I could probably spend there hours, so I guess it's no big news that I came back from UK with four books richer. It's always difficult to choose which book comes home with you, but as they say, three's the charm. The fourth book was an unexpected present from friend and I am actually still very overwhelmed to get to read that!
So, let's start from the bottom:
1. ''The flavour thesaurus'' by Niki Segnit is the book that I'd even call a bible of every creative cook. It teaches and inspires how to mix flavours and play with them creatively. As I consider myself as a little foodie, I can't wait to try all this interesting and fun combinations out already!
2. ''How to be Parisian wherever you are'' by four amazing Parisiennes - Sophie Mas, Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret and Anne Berest. Ladies, be ready to laugh as you tap into your inner cool. These modern Parisiennes will take you on a first date, to a party and through a hangover, they'll tell you how to be mysterious and sensual. Brilliant book - chic and desirable.
3. ''French women don't get facelifts'' by the author of the international bestseller ''French women don't get fat'' - Mireille Guiliano. It's a funny, must read book! With her signature blend of wit, no-nonsense advice and storytelling flair Mireille addresses everything from lotions and potions to diet, style, friendship and romance.
4. ''Fashion'' by Andrew Tucker & Tamsin Kingswell - what pushed me buy this book was the simplicity how these two authors have written down every important thing about my favourite F word. It totally is a very interesting reading as it discusses all major developments in fashion history, it features on key styles and outstanding innovators. The book will make you a style guru, not a fashion victim.
I'd be glad to get to know your recent favourite books as well! I love reading, but it's not always that easy to find an enticing book, so bring it on, sweethearts!
