Hi all, been reading only fluff off late. Somehow am not able to read anything substantial- just not in the mood. These are the books I've read last week
Style & The Successful Girl- Gretta Monahan
I used to enjoy watching Gretta on Tim Gunn's Guide to Style & was thrilled to pick this up. She divides dressing styles into 4 categories- weekend, girly, sophisticated & sexy & we are supposed to pick the one we most feel is "me". As far as such style books go, this is one of the better ones. Good stuff.
Everything Eyes- Bobbie Brown
Lots of eye makeup tips & tricks make up this book. There is nothing new though. Also there is a special section for eyeglasses & the makeup you can do to highlight them more. I think this has only been added to promote Boobie's own new line of eyeglasses. Blatantly self promotional. You can easily pass this book.
Secret Model Beauty- Lindsay Lockwood
Another ho hum book. It offers nothing new & there are so many spelling mistakes (makes me wonder if it was edited at all). Repeated usage of "your" for "you're" & "pours" for "pores" really kills it for me. Stay away. You have been warned.
I'm in a reading rut. Please suggest some great books. Cheers.
