I’ve been a fan of Vicky Pattison for a number of years, I loved her in ‘Geordie Shore’ and ‘Ex On The Beach’ with her wit and sharp tongue, she makes for entertaining television so when I heard about her lifestyle book’, The Real Me’, I was curious about to see how her personality would translate to page.
The book is spilt up into twelve chapters and each chapter provides advice, tips and Vicky’s own experiences ranging from love, heartbreak, health, fitness as well as tips on landing your dream jobs as well as achieving your goals. A lot of the content is common sense, but there are so many wonderful nuggets of knowledge that the book does make for aspirational and motivation reading that I really did enjoy.
I was fortunate to get a quick interview with Vicky when she was doing the book tour for ‘The Real Me’ and when I asked her to sum up the book in three words, her reply was that “the real me”. Which is so very true. the book reads how Vicky talks and behaves and is funny and clever in its delivery.
I loved the honesty and frankness in this book, how Vicky tells of her perseverance with achieving her goals, her low points and her plans for the future. She offers direct advice on all aspects of life and proves with a lot of hard work, anything is possible.
Beautifully laid out in a minimal style, this book is filled with recipes, lifestyle tips and a playlist for a girls night out, ‘The Real Me’ is a bubbly and inspirational guide that truly is Vicky Pattison wrapped up in a book!
