Inspiration: A few of my favourite books

So you could mistake my living room as a library these days, there’s just something enchanting about a good old book. Don’t you just love the idea of stamping all your books so they have a ‘pretend’ library ticket or is that just me.
I seem to have acquired quite a collection of books so I thought I would share some of my all-time favourites.

The English Roses I love this book so much so I am greedy and have it in both sizes. I kind of like the novelty of it being written by Madonna. But also have a massive love for Jeffrey Fulvimari illustrations. Utterly gorgeous from cover to cover.

Influence The Olsen’s are so beautiful and this book makes me love fashion. I love the layout of this book, and I love the size of this book! It’s so chunky and perfect coffee table material.

The Audrey Hepburn Treasures The most appealing book I have ever read. It’s so personal, (it has little pockets with scanned nostalgia in, photographs, programmes, flyers, and scripts) and of course Audrey Hepburn is one of my favourite people♥

Sex and the City Kiss and Tell/The Movie Just so I never forget an outfit, I am always referring back to this. I will never grow old of Carrie Bradshaw & Co. And I secretly find the who did who page quite amusing!

Burlesque and the Art of the Teese This book is amazing. It takes me into a whole different world. Dita Von Teese is such a beautiful and creative inspiration. The photographs in this book are so fascinating.

Tell me if you would like anymore posts like this :)
