I love my books. I will read practically anything you put in front of me. Combine reading and beauty together as far as I am concerned it's going to be a recipe for success... Or is it?

I am a little addicted to Amazon. There is something new posted through my door almost every week (or there was until I started the 100 Day Challenge). I've received books I have had a hard time putting down and I've received books where I really shouldn't have wasted my precious pennies.

Here, just for you, I have rounded up a small selection of the books that I have in my 'beauty' selection and am going to give them all a mini-review so that you know not to make the same mistakes that I did!

When it comes to anything that sparkles, glistens and glints I am a magpie. I especially love jewelry. There isn't a lot that sends me loopier and I am forever picking up new 'bits and bobs' even though I've had an incident before where I have doubled up on a necklace because I had forgotten that I already owned it.

I have so much jewelry that I am constantly running out of storage solutions for them so I end up with earrings, bracelets, bangles, rings and necklaces draped over pretty much any inanimate object in my home whilst Dave fears to tread bare-footed as he's been spiked by a rogue stud rolling around the floor or carpet on more than one occasion.

So, now the majority of my silver and gold and plated metal has been resigned to my bedroom (for the time being) after I cleaned and tidied the house the other day, here are the ways in which I store my jewellery.
