Summer Reads

Everything I'm reading at the moment is, as you would expect, fashion related...

So first of all on my reading list is a novel written by Lauren Conrad, L.A. Candy. I've only read about a quarter so far though I am enjoying it. It's about a couple of girls who move to Los Angeles in the hope of a more interesting life and that's exactly what they get. It's very light-hearted and fun and you'll enjoy it if you're interested in the L.A. lifestyle and reality shows etc. I don't know if you have seen the American sitcom, Don't Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23 (definitely worth watching if you haven't, it's hilarious!), but for some reason, I always picture the two girls in this whilst I am reading it! I will definitely be finishing this book off on holiday on the beach or by the pool.

Next is, of course, my monthly ELLE UK magazine as I have a subscription. The cover girl is Mila Kunis and she looks amazing as usual! You also get a free St. Tropez gradual tan moisturiser with the issue but whilst I haven't tried it out yet, I am rather skeptical as it is medium dark shade and I am pretty pale sooooo. You also get an ELLE the Runway Edit short magazine with the August issue.

I mentioned before that my friends bought me Lauren Conrad's Style book for my birthday but this isn't a book you read just once, it's more like a style bible that you refer back to for tips and ideas. Very inspirational and definitely worth buying! It even tells you how to best pack for your summer holiday!

Finally is a book my Dad bought me called Essential Reporting. Whilst I don't want to be a reporting journalist as such, this is still interesting to flick through as the majority of it is linked to the fashion journalism/editing career I am interested in.

What are you reading this summer?


  1. I love Lauren Conrad's style! I've re-read it soo many times. Is L.A Candy good? I was thinking of buying it for my hols xx

    1. As I say, I've not read much of it yet and not much has happened so far but yes, I am enjoying it! The good thing about it is that the chapters are really short so you can pick it up and put it down as often as you want.
      Yes, I would definitely recommend it as a holiday read :) xx
