Review: I enjoyed reading this as I watch her videos from time to time and it was nice to get to know what goes on behind the camera. I loved the aesthetics of the cover and all the photos that were within. It was nice to accompany certain small paragraphs with photos. Seeing the photos of her London home has given me inspiration for my apartment. The writing wasn’t astounding but I did not go into this expecting it to be a masterpiece. It was meant to be a light read in-between serious/long books and to learn about someone’s life. I found that certain aspects were being repeated over and over again and that got on my nerves a bit. Also, I was expecting more Canada! Overall, easy read, could’ve been more in depth other than general and visually appealing.
