Living Beauty Bobbi Brown





I did not expect to like this book, but I LOVE IT! Here's the thing...I don't put a lot of thought on a daily basis into how I look, oh the condition of my skin, or whether or not I have the right haircut for my face....who has the time??

As I was reading through this book however, I had a lot of "a-ha" moments where I really thought, ok maybe it's time to start taking better care of myself.

um...DUH!..Amy...I'll be 35 on Friday...oh Gosh..yes I just admitted that....All through this book are these interviews with famous women who, at least I think of, as REAL women...about their thoughts on beauty...like Rita Wilson, Lorraine Bracco, and Anne Curry who had a quote I just have to share because I love it!

"..Above everything else, the thing that helps me make the most of my looks is my daily effort to be a good person..." -Anne Curry

The book covers everything from nutrition to exercise, The "make-up" face lift, head to toe makeovers, I especially appreciated the very detailed instruction in here on how to hide basically every flaw with carefully applied makeup...


SO WHO WANTS A COPY!!

I've got 5 to give away!!

I'm making it easy today....

Just leave me a comment here by Sunday April 19th!!
us and Canada only please no PO Boxes
Thanks to Anna at Hatchette for these books!




ENJOY THE REST OF YOUR DAY AND


READ ON CHICKS!!!

Wow - Amy! Looks like you are off to a roaring good start! If you need anything special, you know you can count on me. I'm not going to compete for free books (I read a lot and always have a stack), but if you ever need me to read for you in a pinch, I will. Way to go!

Can you picture spending just one day with Bobbi? What a treat that would be, so I'm sure this book is a treasure to have.

I am liking Agnes & the hitman - too funny. I'm over halfway through it.

I'm so happy I won. I sent you my mailing address.

Rosemary said...

Great blog and who wouldn't want a little beauty advice? I like Bobbi Brown, she seems real and no-nonsense.

BTW, 35 is NOT old. There is a cure for feeling bad about it, it's called turning 40. (And even that isn't bad, honest)

Jana said...

I am loving your Chic Book Chicks blog. I need a couple of hours, uninterrupted, to really sink my teeth into this site. Maybe I'll take the time this afternoon, and blow off work. Sounds good to me. Anyway, count me in on the drawing. Sounds like a book I NEED.

JenMc said...

I need to spend more time catching up on your blog!

Count me in on the drawing. I totally need to read this!
