Hey there CHICKS!! Welcome to SELF HELP SUNDAY!!!

How Not To Look Old by Charla Krupp

I can't be the only one out there who needs this advice.

This book is so much a girlfriend you can fit in your tote bag...seriously

This book starts out with a quiz "Are you High, Medium or Low Maintenance?" and then each section addresses you accordingly..LOVE THAT!..I'm low by the way...(but that's not necessarily a good thing)

I love 42.."If it's on your body, and headed south, it needs to make a U-turn"

Every chapter opens with "Nothing makes you look old like...." and proceeds to spout those things we're still doing that we did in our twenties, and why they don't work for us anymore.

This book covers everything from plucking your eyebrows to choosing the right shoes and how to go about it in a very fun and amusing way. I know you chicks are going to love it!!

5 Copies are up for grabs to 5 very lucky chicks!!

I had to laugh at the quote "...headed south, it needs to make a u-turn". So true!

Today is my sister's birthday and SHE could use the help (LOLOLOL).

I'm mean, I know!

Actually, I could use the book, because I'm actually OLDER than she is (by one year) AND...I want people to continue to think I'm the YOUNGER sister. (again, I KNOW - meanie meanie)

I already own a copy, but I absolutely love it! Charla actually started blogging about all of the new tried-and-true Brilliant Buy products in the paperback edition of her book, and it's a fantastic resource with some incredible tips. I check it every day!
