Description

Those who enjoy Sali's writing are no doubt of an age where they have learned 99% of what is included in this book already.

Although the concept of the book may seem rigid Hughes dispenses her advice with humour, and switrches between the seemingly inconsequential to the big topics with ease. It would make a great gift to give to someone leaving home for the first time. I did enjoy the personal stories that were shared, such as finding out about her childhood, her father's hoarding and personal life, but these were far and few between.

All of the advice provided was pretty obvious and I'm really not sure who it is meant to help or is targeted at. Please be aware that the delivery time frame may vary according to the area of delivery - the approximate delivery time is usually between 1-2 business days.

I did frequently think what a lovely gift it would make to someone in their late teens or early 20s leaving home for the first time, but then wondered if said someone wouldn't be more likely to get their life advice from Tiktok and Youtube. It also read from a very privileged white standpoint too, which I understand Sali is but when she showed vulnerability or the journey that she had been on to get where she is today, that is where this book actually worked. selectedStore.City }}, {{ selectedStore.State }} {{ selectedStore.Country }} {{ selectedStore.Zip }} Although the concept of the book may seem rigid, Hughes dispenses her advice with humour, and switches between the seemingly inconsequential to the big topics with ease.

Hughes gives advice on where it is good to spend money – bin bags, cheap ones being the ultimate false economy – and where to save money – buy a cheap kitchen but have it fitted properly. She also answers all of those vital questions such as “Are posh candles a waste of money?” and lists the thirty-seven foodstuffs that she considers essential to have in your kitchen cupboard.

Had it leaned more into the personal stories and their relevance to the topics this could have been so much better. The interesting thing is that occasionally we see flashes of vulnerability and signs of personal growth (when Sali talks about revisiting her childhood home, her father's hoarding, and her own parenting). But she (understandably) doesn't seem to want this to be a focus. In a media world where women are encouraged to mine their own trauma., this may be a wise move or possibly a decision to wait until the memoir-propre.
