Hello! Maggie the guinea pig here, I’m sorry that you haven’t seen me for a while. A carrot can always tempt me out! Never fear, today I’m back with a review of Lilly Singh’s ‘How to be a Bawse‘.
Lilly is a Canadian Youtuber with 12 million subscribers, and she’s known to her legions of fans as Superwoman. We don’t often get excited about Youtuber books, but my mum knew she’d make an exception for Lilly. Mum is a big fan of Superwoman and this book seemed a little different to the baking, beauty or biographical offerings of other Youtubers. We both had high hopes for it.
Let me begin by saying, this book is beautiful. The photography is amazing and the camera just adores Lilly. But, you may be wondering what a bawse is? Lilly defines it as a “person who exudes confidence, reaches goals, gets hurt efficiently, and smiles genuinely because they’ve fought through it all and made it out the other side”. Hmm, I think I invented that, not Lilly…
Lilly walks us through the process of becoming a bawse, chapter by chapter, and with a few personal anecdotes along the way. It’s really accessible and chapters aren’t that long, so you can pick it up and put it into practice with ease.
If you’re looking to become more confident, this book is your life manual. If you’re at a low ebb and want to get back on your feet, this book is most definitely for you.
Or, you could save yourselves the money and ask me instead, because I could have taught Lilly everything she knows… Right then, I’m off for a nap, being a bawse is a lot of work you know! Are you a fan of Lilly’s?
