I absolutely love Usborne books and they were my favourite as a kid. They were pretty expensive for me so I used to go to the library on the Saturday and borrow them – I used to constantly renew some of them (I must’ve kept them for months and months!) and get annoyed if I had to hand it back because someone had reserved it!
I was browsing Amazon the other day and got nostalgic. I managed to find this book, An Usborne Guide to Fashion & Style which was the EXACT book I used to borrow endlessly!
Usborne used to do this thing where they released a series then put it all together as a compilation.
Fashion & Style combines 4 books – Jewellery, Fashion, Make Up and Hair! Obviously this book is dated and out of print now! Check out the hairstyles!
The make up section was my favourite and to be honest, some of the tips are still quite good!
Check out this 80s look! Did you used to tie a scarf around your head!?
The polka dot look!
The style section is ok, and so is the hair (altho it tells you how to do a home perm!).
Check out this Papier Mache bracelet!!!!! I made this! I mashed up the paper and moulded it although it fell apart! Classy eh?
The haircuts – so 80s!
I love this book, I had a great time reading it again! I spent a lot of time doing crafts when I was growing up it seems!
Do you have any childhood/teenage books you’d love to read again?
