Good Reads: A Look Inside Sophia Amoruso’s NASTY GALAXY

NASTY GALAXY is Sophia Amoruso’s second book and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.

Anyone who knows me can tell you I’m a big fan of Sophia Amoruso. I love her personality, style and how unique she is. It’s safe to say she is not your conventional business and fashion mogul.

In case you haven’t heard of her (I highly doubt it but just in case), she is the creator of fashion label Nasty Gal and the author of best seller book #GIRLBOSS.

If you love Sophia as much as I do, or you’re after a really cool coffee table book? You came to the right place.

Keep reading to find out what you will find inside of NASTY GALAXY!

NASTY GALAXY As The Perfect Addition To Your Coffee Table

When Nasty Galaxy was given to me for my birthday, the first thing I noticed was its soft pink linen cover.

I had never owned coffee table books before. But after browsing on Pinterest , I realised how they add personality and sophistication to any room in the house.

Now I own two coffee table books and I must say Nasty Galaxy’s soft pink cover gives a beautiful and feminine splash of colour to my room.

I do have to mention that I’m not a big fan of the fabric used on the cover tho. I find it difficult to maintain it free from Teddy’s hair (Teddy is my little cat).

Besides that, I really like Nasty Galaxy.

This book is not only pretty, it’s content is entertaining, visually appealing and filled with wisdom and inspiration.

Nasty Galaxy, An Insight To Sophia’s Mind and Life

The book starts with a beautiful dedication:

In sophia’s words “Nasty Galaxy represents infinite possibility – a place in time and space where anything can happen”.

I loved the part where Sophia explains how challenging the creative process can be and how difficult it was to bring this book to live.

It’s refreshing to have an inside look of successful endeavours to realise our struggle is not uncommon.

In the foreword, Courtney Love gives some solid advice. Who would have thought?

Love talks about Sophia’s professionalism and how as girl bosses, we need to be prudent with our money, adapt and keep our nose clean. Brilliant!

Nasty Galaxy has a collection of powerful quotes and portraits of girl bosses. Each portrait features different creators. They talk about their journey, passion and struggles.

I found each portrait extremely motivating, eye-opening and purely inspiring.

“Keep going. Hone your craft over those ten thousand hours, and once you’re capable as fuck, you’ll know it because the world will respond”

Powerful stuff ladies.

So if you are in the market for a beautiful coffee table book. If you love astrology and want solid kick ass advice that will make you drop your pity party and work really fucken hard, be chic and create your dream business and life. This the book for you!

Besides, who can resist the bad ass and rock-chic vibe the book gives us?

There you have it, I hope you liked today’s post and share it. Thank you for reading!

What’s your favourite coffee table book?
