I have to admit, I love reading. It's sort of a ritual for me to disconnect from the digital world I live during my working hours. Unfortunatelly I am not one of those readers who are able to finish a book in three days, since I hardly find time to read and I am not able to continuously read for more than one hour. What is my favorite genre? Honestly, books written by people that inspire me - non fiction / biography / motivation. My favorite writers are Chelsea Handler and Ellen DeGeneres. I can recoomend both as theyr books are true relaxation and fun.
Lately I have been interested in the topic of fashion industry or books written by women that can give me some wisdom value. You all might know the bestseller from Sofia Amoruso - Girlboss, right? She showed that if you believe in yourself and you're not affraid, you can work yourself up. And while the topic of business is quite interesting, I started to read more about fashion and lifestyle. And these are my tips:
How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are
It's a great funny book that gives you overview of your troubles with man and will show you how to be above things. I cannot summarize it differently. Parisians don't overanalyze themselves, at least not in public and when they are at home they do. Well, this book gave me some humorous tips.
Love × Style × Life
Very well written book from my favorite "blogger" Garance Doré. I put the word blogger in quotes because she is more of a persona then blogger. She creates great content with her team - from articles at Atelier Doré to her podcast. She is very talented photographer and illustrator that entered fashion world. I admire her connection to reality, her style that isn't ruled by trends. She shows that world of fashion can be great but style is more about your approach to dressing. up. If you find your style, you'll always look great. She gives advice on how to find your own style, and shop more consciously. I am currently reading the book but even after the first half, I can recommend it.
Are you also such a fans of Chrissy Teigen as I am? She is a great mom, loving wife and very modern girl with great sense of humor.
And world wonder - this gorgeous model knows how to cook in the most amazing way! I was expecting her cookbook to be parade of superfoods and salads, but boy I was wrong! Her cookbook is full of great recipes that are ususally fusion between Thai cuisine her mom cooked and American from dad's side. It's all tasty and picant.
There are some thai classics, salads, burgers, steaks, baked veggie and pasta. Plus some funny stories.
Dress [With] Sense
This is currently my bible of sustainable fashion. There is plenty of info thank which you'll realize how easy changing approach to style is. There are some great interviews with people from the industry that started to pay attention to responsible clothing.
Do you have any tips for great book? Let me know down in the comments.
