Hey my dear darling readers,
I am very new to writing book reviews. I have been asked more than a couple of times to review books, which I politely declined. But this is a very special book. I took nearly two weeks to read the book and it has changed the way I think and I felt towards self- grooming.

About the Book
When I got this book neatly wrapped in a brown paper. All I wondered was 'why me?' I am the last person who bothers about the way I look. I don't mind going through the day without even combing my hair. I don't put on make-up and I barely step into a parlour, that too only when my husband throws me out with an ultimatum to not to enter till i start look like a human and not a female gorilla (which eventually leads to getting thrown out of the parlor for crying too much).Frankly I believed in inner beauty and the way I look or carried myself didn't really mean much to me.
As I unwrap the book the first thing I see is a very pretty looking SLIM girl (I thought we were talking about any size...huh?). The assumptuous me slammed the book without even opening it. I thought it was like any other fashion book who talked only about zero sizes not about real curvy women.
I finally opened the book and started to read I realized I was nothing but pompous- ignorant- fool. There were so many things which I never thought about. What kind of a bone structure I have, body structure I have, the kind of face or my skin tone.
The Book deals with all questions that could pop in your head like what kind of clothes should a I wear? What colour would suit me the most? Most importantly, the do's and don't's.
How to instantly correct your figure. That was my favourite part. Delivering a baby has taken a toll not only on my mind but also on my body. This magic thing (will not disclose) really works.
This book deals with everything under the sun. From hair, bags, shoes, hairstyles, make-up, skin care, hair care , accessories etc.
I would like to end by saying that it should be a mini bible for everyone who wishes to look good. It has helped me a lot. It has made me understand that inner beauty is very important but there is no harm in looking BEAUTIFUL :D
Rating I would give the book :
