Lifestyle Book Haul

As you may have seen in one of posts recently - lifestyle books are something I am starting to invest in alot more. 
From health and fitness to positive thoughts, mindfulness and goal setting - there really is a book out there to help you with anything. 
I find it so motivating and helpful to have something on my bedside table to dip in and out of and I think it's not going to be long until I need to buy another bookcase for my home!


When I wrote my recent post (here) I asked if anyone had any book recommendations. Of course you awesome lovelies sent me some fab suggestions which sounded right up my street so ...... I went ahead and ordered some!

First of all was a suggestion from the lovely Emma (Owls and Stags) - with Reasons To Stay Alive by Matt Haig.
 She told me it was amazing for anxiety and staying calm, which I struggle with alot and with it being less than £4 on Amazon I couldn't NOT try it out.

On first looks I was a little scared, it all seemed very much orientated about depression which is a deep, deep subject - but the reviews and comments I keep seeing everywhere seem to portray that this is an incredible book for anyone to read for a positive outlook on life.
I'm really looking forward to getting stuck in. 

Next was a book that I cannot believe I hadn't heard of before, it sounds like it was made for me! I am a super messy person. I cannot help it, I always have been .... but hopefully won't always be.
I know how much better I feel in myself when everything in my life is tidy - from home to work to even my handbag, it's so much calming when everything is in order and neat. (I'm just a bit pants at it sometimes.)
This book was recommend by Steph (Nourish Me Clean) and as soon as I heard the title - The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying - I knew I had to try it out.
I'm actually SO excited to read this.... I need all the tips I can get! I feel like I need to de-clutter my home from top to bottom and start again with everything in tip-top-tidy condition! Have any of you read this?
The third book I bought recently was one that had been in my saved items/wishlist on Amazon for months. Kate Hudson's - Pretty Happy.
'Healthy Ways To Love Your Body' is the tagline and something which I need to hear. I'm always in a constant battle with how I feel about myself and this book is said to be a fantastic guide to confidence and everyday all round happiness with yourself.

I've had a good flick through of this and it all looks amazing - so many different sections and amazing focus on the 4 main pillars to focus on to achieve a balanced, healthy life. There's also great places to fill out your own thoughts and personal details - an amazing book for travelling with.


Anymore books recommendations? Keep them coming! I'm sure over time I'll review these books in full - is there are any you would really love me to talk about then just let me know :)

  3. I had The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up and found it super useful! My house is SO much less cluttered now, and I say that as a self confessed mess-oholic

  5. First of all, just stumbled upon your blog and it's amazing, can't wait to read more!
    I read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up a year ago and it was an amazing read. I had already decided to declutter before I read the book and it gave me so many good tips and most of all motivation to get rid of all my useless stuff. Decluttering has made the biggest difference in my life, I'm so much happier now with less stuff :) xx

  7. I never have physical books on hand. I actually feel a bit sad about it from looking at your photos since they look lovely. I might have to download them!

  8. I've got and read most of the magic of tidying book, although it was that long ago i've forgotten what it said! I'm trying to have a sort through at the moment though so i'll have to skim back through it. At the time of reading it though it did seem helpful and made sense, although some concepts were a little too out there for my tastes! x
