When I said Fleur de Force's Glam Guide was the only Youtuber book I will buy, I lied, as this one was quietly taking up space in my drawer, ready to be featured. Grace's Guide came out a little while ago now, way before Christmas in fact, and I've been meaning to write about it since
I'm not sure why I picked this up if I'm honest. I don't watch Grace Helbig's videos religiously like I do with other Youtuber vids but when I do watch her videos I really enjoy her humour and sarcasm and I feel it translates really well into this book. It's very tongue in cheek and you probably shouldn't take the advice too literally, but there are bits and pieces that are quite helpful such as the interview techniques, party and travel tips and making friends as an adult. I believe Grace is in her early thirties so this book is great for people of my age (late 20's *cough cough*) to get a bit of help and advice on various topics.
Grace never takes herself too seriously, which is why this book is pretty funny in places. It's just Grace's humour through and through and I like the fact that after each chapter it has a helpful ticklist to help you remember the key points of the chapter. Again, like Fleur's book, this isn't one I've read from front to back but it is one I pick up and flick through every now and then. It's most definitely a coffee table sort of book, but one that you'll get something new and witty from on each read.
Have you read Grace's Guide? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

I had such high blogging hopes today but the day has totally run away from me. I woke up at 8.30am and thought to myself I'd clean the house first and then get taking bloggy photos and writing lots of posts but it's now 3.50pm and this is the first post I've written so far…I ended up cleaning the house but then Vince and I went and did a food shop, went to Pets At Home and then B&Q as well and the day has pretty much disappeared. I have taken some photos to tide me over post-wise for the week but I really need to get back on it when it comes to blogging. I have really slipped this past two weeks or so. I initially wanted to improve my posts and change the way I did them, so instead of review after review I would do more magazine-style posts but I've sort of stopped so I really need to get back into doing it again.
I have a week off coming up from March 16 so guess what I'll be doing…blogging, blogging and more blogging. I really need to sit down and have a big idea session for upcoming posts and just get back to how organised I was at the beginning of the month!
This week seems to have gone pretty quickly! I seem to have been very sleepy in the evenings this week for some reason, falling asleep on the sofa infront of the TV. Not good. I'm trying my hardest right now not to put the laptop down and have a little nap!
I had spin class again this week and managed .5 of a KM more than last week, bringing me to 26.5km and 82 RPM. I didn't give it my all this week, not sure why to be honest, I just felt more tired! I am still enjoying it though and I'm already looking forward to the next class.
This week coming I've got another crochet class. I have been practising like a good student and have now completed two, yes two, granny squares for my blanket. If it takes this long to make just two squares then this blanket isn't going to be finished any time soon.
Yesterday I had a nice lazy morning infront of the TV and laptop and then begrudgingly got dressed and ready to do a few chores such as posting my giveaway prize, picking up my perscription, getting my eyebrows waxed and all that boring stuff! I then went to my mum and dad's for lunch with my sister and the kids and in the afternoon I met up with my sister again for an iced tea in Costa. We're absolutely loving the peach iced teas in there, amazing!
How has your weekend been? Let me know your plans for this week coming…
Before I go, just a quick bit of good news: I'm one of the new bloggers over at Magazine.co.uk.
