Hardcover: 304 pages
Publisher: Penguin (29 Jan. 2015)
Hi everyone and welcome to my book! It's really close to my heart because it's inspired by my journey to becoming confident and feeling happy about who I am. I wanted to write the book to share the things I've learnt with you - to reveal my top tips on fashion, beauty, love, friendship and YouTube... and loads more! Plus there is room for you to list your own hopes and dreams alongside mine - so get creative and get involved! I'd love it if this book became a keepsake you can treasure for years to come and learn to love yourself along the way - like I have. I hope you enjoy it!

Thank you as always to the puppeteers at Penguin for sending an early copy of this my way, I’m so glad I can spew my thoughts about Tanya’s new book and encourage you all to buy it. (No, I don’t get paid in any way, shape or form for my cheesy-tactic words) but honestly, this is such a beautiful book.
Let’s take a moment as book reviews and members of the bookish world, to put aside whatever feelings (if you have them) about the trend of youtubers and their rise to fame. I know many book reviewers who don’t feel pleasantly about this step of youtubers into the bookish world, and while I can respect their opinions, my own view matter not in this case as I put all that “stuff” in a box, and review a truly well put together book.
Tanya’s book is full of an array of great content, from glossy and seriously stunning photos and candids, to recipes and tips, personal stories and travels, as well as this really nifty bit after each section for you to jot your notes down.
With a great cover (that weirdly reminds me of the movie Valentines Day, don’t ask), I feel like it really sets the tone for the rest of the book. I know this is a weird thing to like in a book, but I love the use of fonts, typography, and the overall colour scheme. It feels really laid back, fun, pastel-ish, just all around nice.
Tanya’s writing is very straight forward, honest, easy to read, and though not poetic or in line for a literary prize, it’s just something easy to get through - which I believe is the point. She wants to share her story, parts of her life, advice, tips, recipes, and a lot more with people in a different way to videos and she’s done well. With a wonderfully packaged book, I feel like it’s going to make a real dent in the market.
As a thank you to you wonderful people reading these words, here’s some extra content the team at Penguin were kind enough to send my way, to share with you all :)
