IT

Contrary to the traumatizing Stephen King movie, IT by Alexa Chung  is hands-down more appealing than a grotesque clown, but IT  seems to be missing that IT factor. 
Compared to her impeccable style, Alexa's book is nothing out of this world. Rather than calmly reading it through, one easily flicks through its pages. (kinda like endlessly scrolling down your Tumblrdash.) Don't get me wrong, it's entertaining, but I would rather stick to seeing Alexa on TV or seeing what her next perfectly paired ensemble will be, than seeing her as a "writer" or, what seems to be this case, reading her diary. 
All in all, if you want an aesthetically lovely book then go ahead and buy it, but if you wanna see what's inside, simply browse through Alexa's social media sites and you'll get the 411. But since she did IT, I will too. Expect a complete book/diary on: how I managed to ignore my studies in this Thanksgiving break  (that I will not question my college's generosity in giving us the whole week off), and how I doodled my way out of procrastination and anxiety attacks. Just kidding!

 (I'm kidding about the whole book part. Procrastination and anxiety attacks are inevitable.)  

Sincerely, Bianca xx
