A Beautiful Mind, A Beautiful Life: The Bubz Guide to Being Unstoppable
From humble beginnings as an outsider, growing up one of the few Chinese students at her primary school in Ireland, to YouTube stardom and her own line of beauty products, Lindy Tsang, aka Bubzbeauty, has earned a unique perspective that she’s shared with her nearly 3 million YouTube subscribers.
Now, for the first time ever, Lindy’s experiences and insights have been put i
Some background: I've been watching Bubzbeauty since I was 11 years old. I am now 20. I don't really watch her beauty videos anymore, but I love her vlogs. Bubz has been an uplifting force in my life for a long time now. So when she announced that she had written a book, I was ecstatic and immediately preordered. I guess my expect ...more
There were some quotes I had seen before on Pinterest, but I loved how Lindy added her unique story to tie in with them. I highly recommend if you’re looking for a quick, inspiring read! 💛
These things are easier said than done. I found the book was a lot of story of "this is how I used to be, now I am more confident/kind/considerate and things are better" which is great but there was little in how to achieve those things. Changing your state of ...more
"What better gift can you give someone than making them feel more beautiful inside?"
I decided to start the year of by trying to get inspired to work on and improve myself. I don't really have any resolutions for the new year, because I know I have trouble sticking to them, but I thought that starting the year with trying to get an even more positive outlook on life couldn't hurt.
Then, last December, Lindy Tsang (Bubzbeauty on YouTube) had her first bo ...more
Willing to try. Willing to learn.
The words I literally live by in every single way, shape, and form (except for maybe food because I'm really picky).
I've been following Bubz since she started YouTube. I remember when she was like the third most-subscribed YouTuber in the beauty guru department. Her beauty tutorials are the only ones I've ever attempted (beachy hair waves, Park Bom make-up tutorial, just to name a the few that I've tried). While my friends who had introduced me to her stopped w ...more
I initially downloaded this book because I grew up with Bubzbeauty’s videos (or rather, Bubbiosity, I enjoyed her sense of humour), and this is more of a walk down memory lane instead of wanting to be given life advice.
The marriage chapter was raw, and extremely sincere. In fact, it was almost the sole r ...more
I have been a fan of Lindy since I was 12 I watched her videos to help me clear my skin and her Vlogs really do give you an escape to a made-up world! I was so excited when I over a year ago she announced she was writing a book, and she made it sound like it would be a memoir. It wasn't. It was a sad excuse for a self-help book for upper- ...more
Lindy invites readers into her unique life and experiences. I've been watching Lindy on YouTube off and on for years and she's always b ...more
I felt that many of the segments and words used in this book that contributed to her book title of being "unstoppable" were such generic advice that I could find anywhere else on the Internet. It a ...more
I loved this little book. I’ve read some reviews stating that they were dissapointed because she didn’t write we didn’t know yet. Well, I see this book as a reminder. Yes, we’ve heard the things she mentioned in her books before, but isn’t it nice ...more
There were many lessons in this book. Many we have heard before, but this time, we are hearing it from a caring friend who's written her advice in a very friendly manner. We are reminded that only we are responsible for our happiness, and that we can achieve inne ...more
"You are the one who is truly responsible for your own happiness."
Even though I've seen similar versions of this quote in many other places, it still felt nice to be reminded by none other than THE Bubzbeauty, whom I've followed since I was 14 years old quote it in her debut Teen & YA Philosophy novel.
"Okay, so now I needed experience to get experience? I was doomed."
Yes girl! This quote really resonated with my job hunting experiences in my Uni years.
Like I said before, I've been a ...more
- Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Mistakes and obstacles are also opportunities to learn and grow.
- Stop comparing yourself with others. Comparison is the thief of joy. Without even trying, you are already one of a kind.
- Learn to see the beauty in others to appreciate the beauty in yourself. Genuinely celebrate both your and others’ achievements.
- You are responsible for your own happiness. You could be disappointed, not by others, but by your own expectations of them. Cr ...more
As a 28-year-old who began watching Lindy's YouTube videos in 2008, I find myself in a place where I still love to watch her vlogs but don't necessarily need to learn and grow through her channels as I did in my teenage years. There was a time when I would go to her channel to learn how to apply eyeliner, get creative with my hair and wardrobe, love myself from within, and just be thankful for the small bless ...more
however, i'll just round it up to 5 ☆ this time.
i will admit this, i am subscribed to bubz (following her for quite a few years now) and when she announced that she was releasing a book- i was very excited and wanted to pick it up as soon as possible.
this book may not be for everyone. however, for me personally, i'm really glad to have picked up this book and read it around this time of year. in this moment in my life, my life isn't great. reading this didn't ...more
Reading, I felt likr talking to a friend, or rather listening and like a sponge absorbing every single word.
I have been a fan od Lindy for, I think, 8 years, and felt super excited when she announced her book. She may be a Youtuber, buy I knew it would not be just another youtuber's book.
She really put her whole raw self into these pages, and genuinly care ...more
I haven't read very many self-help books, so I will admit I don't have much to compare this to, but I genuinely believe that it's a really good, and uplifting read. It's pretty short, so it's easy to get through, and every page just makes you feel all ...more
I can really relate to some of the examples in the book and that connect ...more
This book is beautifully and thoughtfully written and I enjoyed every minute of it. It made me think about myself and how I act in certain situations. I'm always up for self-reflection and this book was really inspiring.
My favourite part however, has to be how open Lindy (and Tim) were about their struggles as fresh parents. It's amazing how us viewers ha ...more
