A nice hot bubble bath / Review of Love Tanya by Tanya Burr

After work on Tuesday I had to nip to the supermarket to pick up a few essentials. As usual the call of the book aisle was too strong and I found myself face to face with not one, but three blogger’s books all in a row:

The Glam Guide by Fleur De Force fleurdeforce.co.uk
Deliciously Ella by Ella Woodward deliciouslyella.com

I absolutely love to see these girls being so successful and felt a pang of pride as a fellow blogger. They have all have stayed true to their roots and each promise the sort of content that made me fall in love with their blogs to begin with.

After much deliberation I picked Tanya’s book and headed back home, where I found that N was running a bath for me! He explained that he thought it was about time I had a relaxing evening and maybe even an early night.

My husband everyone: the mindreader!

Recently I’ve been so busy that I’ve felt like I’m spinning around in a little tornado. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve announced that I’m going to have an early night but just need to do ‘one more thing’, then two hours later finally fall into bed with my heart racing, ears ringing and a million thoughts whirring in my head still.

So with hubby’s gentle push in the right direction I headed upstairs, book in hand.
When we bought our house one of the selling points for me was the lovely corner bath. I thought I’d live in there! However since we moved in 7 years ago, I think it’s averaged about one use a year. I always end up having a shower just because it’s so much quicker. (Seriously – it takes SO long to fill up a corner bath!).

It’s always such a wonderful feeling to sink into a hot bubble bath though. In an instant you are worlds away from the manic over stimulation of everyday life and transported into the calm oasis, with quiet all around, only broken by the gentle fizzing of bubbles and slosh of water.

Even though it’s actually quite awkward in practise, I do like to read a book in the bath since I can give it my absolute and undivided attention without fear of distraction. This one was a bit heavy though so it did almost go for a swim at one point when I got too engrossed and forgot to hold it up – oops!

Tanya’s book is the sort that you can dip in and out of, or just as easily read cover to cover in one sitting. From the ‘Growing Up’ chapters I discovered that Tanya is originally from Norwich, not London as I’d previously assumed. I’m from Cambridgeshire so reading about places close by to me being talked of so fondly was a nice surprise.

Tanya covers her early upbringing, how she first discovered makeup artistry and the origins of her Youtube channel so you get a really good insight into her world and how friends and family helped to shape her path.
There are a wide range of topics to keep you interested too. One chapter shares her recipes for homely favourites such as lemon drizzle cake and cupcakes, whilst another tackles the subject of happiness and her personal account of dealing with stress and anxiety. Then there’s a whole chapter devoted to makeup and another to fashion, each with how to guides, hints and tips.

It doesn’t hurt that it’s also filled with beautiful coffee table style pictures; I do love beautiful photography.

After my bathtime read, I slathered myself in copious amounts of my favourite body lotion from Molton Brown (which smells heavenly!) and curled up in bed. I attempted to listen to a bit of my latest audiobook Eat Pray Love, but soon drifted off into a deep sleep. I should DEFINITELY do this whole relaxation thing more often!
