My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella


Published: 13th July 2017
Publisher: Transworld
Pages: 431


Katie Brenner has the perfect life: a flat in London, a glamorous job, and a super-cool Instagram feed. OK, so the truth is that she rents a tiny room with no space for a wardrobe, has a hideous commute to a lowly admin job, and the life she shares on Instagram isn’t really hers. But one day her dreams are bound to come true, aren’t they?

Until her not-so-perfect life comes crashing down when her mega-successful boss Demeter gives her the sack. All Katie’s hopes are shattered. She has to move home to Somerset, where she helps her dad with his new glamping business. Then Demeter and her family book in for a holiday, and Katie sees her chance. But should she get revenge on the woman who ruined her dreams – or try to get her job back? Does Demeter – the woman who has everything – actually have such an idyllic life herself? Maybe they have more in common than it seems.

Makeup bags are an item which I rarely purchase.

My current one is from Harrods which I’ve been using since 2013 and it’s still going strong, so I’ve never found a reason to replace it.

You know there will be tears.

Too Faced // Better Than Sex Mascara

Sephora is one of those shops that you just have to go in whenever you see it and I was lucky enough to spot it while I was walking through Corfu Old Town.

I’ve never been in Sephora before; I wasn’t really into makeup when I visited New York back in 2013 and I’ve never truly known what to purchase from there.

So naturally, I went in and bought a product you can buy from Debenhams.
