Part diary, part beauty manual, Love, Tanya is brimming with ideas and advice about life, love, fashion and friendship.
The author of Love, Tanya is the talented Tanya Burr, who is just one of a few 'beauty' Youtube stars to recently write a book. Tanya is very popular in the Youtube community, with over 2 million subscribers and 130 million views. She also owns her own successful cosmetics range and has a significant social media presence. In her autobiography not only does Tanya depict her life and passions, but she also portrays her bubbly and sweet personality throughout. I think that both her excellent writing and infectious personality are what really make this book unique.
The book is divided up into several chapters, including 'Growing Up', 'Making Up', 'Fashion', 'Baking' and 'Confidence & Happiness'. She somehow manages to capture all the things she is passionate about into this one book. She starts by explaining her childhood and how she got to be where she is now. This chapter is very entertaining and humorous- especialy when she discusses her awkward teenage years. The remainder of the book discusses all the things she is passionate about and she shares a lot of information in regards to beauty and fashion. Tanya lists a lot of her favourite beauty items (usually seen on her Youtube channel), she also explains how to dress for your body type and she shares heaps of great tips on hair and skin care!
Tanya also shares a love for baking and she includes a chocolate chip cookie recipe that is incredibly delicious (tried and tested by me!). There are loads more recipes in the 'Baking' chapter which I can guarantee will start so many readers baking. There is a significant emphasis on the 'Happiness and Confidence' chapter. As Tanya is such a huge influence to many younger girls, she really tries to set a good example for a healthy body image and tell girls to love themselves for who they really are.
To add a cute and special personal touch, almost every chapter includes lined pages that you are able to fill out. For example, there's a space for you to fill out your funniest or most embarrassing moments and also list your top fashion inspirations. Another great aspect of this book is the amazing pictures, which are sprawled on nearly every page and add something a bit extra. All in all this book is such an easy and light-hearted read that will not only give you beauty tips and hints, but inspire you to achieve your goals and be confident in who you are. I recommend this book to all females (young and old) and would also suggest binge-watching all of her Youtube videos.
