Life Styling by Mikhila McDaid. Is this the must have guide or is it just another YouTuber book? Can a book really help you to find your style as well as your confidence? Just continue reading to find out.
Having followed Mikhila’s Youtube channels Miss Budget Beauty and Diary Of A Spendaholic for several years I’ve watched both herself and her channels grow. When the book announcement arrived, I ordered it straight away.
First impressions of the cover is how aesthetically pleasing it is. However, the tagline made me wonder if it was something that I would enjoy reading. Nonetheless, I was determined to give it a try.
Simple steps for mums to find style and confidence– Mikhila McDaid
This book was one of those that you just can’t put down. Right from the start, there were relatable topics such as the “shopping smarter” chapter, which talks about how to save money whilst still buying the things you love. For years, people have always stated that you should dress for your shape and whilst in the past I’ve done this, my body has changed so it was great to read the “dressing for your shape” chapter, to update the styles that might suit me.
There were some chapters that didn’t fit in with my current life such as the “marriage and divorce” chapter, but I still found it interesting to read. Mikhila also wrote a lovely letter to her daughter, which was so beautifully written and coming straight from her heart, it had me in tears.
Throughout the book, Mikhila refers to her contributors, which are a group of YouTubers, bloggers and other people, which Mikhila had introduced at the beginning. At different topics throughout the book, she asked these contributors for their opinions, if they have done something similar and how they handled it, which I think is a nice touch and something I haven’t seen before.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. The tagline on the cover was definitely deceiving because this book is suitable for adults of any age. I’d definitely recommend this book if you are looking for a light-hearted self help guide.
