Review by Suze
Louise Pentland is leading a happy life and in her book Life With a Sprinkle of Glitter she gives her readers a lot of useful tips and tricks. It's a book you can read from beginning to end or you can open it at random and read something that interests you at a certain moment. Every page has a different design, so it's also a joy to look at. There's a lot of good advice for young girls, which makes this a perfect reference book with a sprinkle of glitter.
Louise Pentland shows that everyone can achieve a certain level of happiness. It isn't something that just happens, you can make it happen. I'm all for being as happy as possible, so I was curious to see what Louise would recommend her readers. I loved how every chapter of this guidebook has its own theme and styling. I think the book is especially suitable for young girls as there's a lot of great first time advice. For example on how to throw a good party, how to set up a home, how to network, etc. Louise is like a big, caring sister who is always there to give advice. She's honest about herself, she describes her fears and her mistakes as well as her successes.
I like the glitter aspect and being happy is indeed important, so I like the idea to turn it into a book. The advice is brief and not very deep, but that also wouldn't be fitting. I think it's all just right. I can see that Louise has given everything she's written about a lot of thought. I also love the designs and the gorgeous photos. It's like reading a scrapbook or diary instead of a regular book. I think Louise Pentland has written a wonderful and fun first book.
