I love this book, something to read when my body image is low. ( )

I'm not a diet book kind of person, but the cover on this was so appealing I had to give it a shot. The advice seems pretty realistic and warm, there are no recipes (yay!) but there is also almost no mention of exercise (boo!). The author is far more fashionable than I will ever be, and all her tips'n'tricks about mascara and good haircuts sailed right over my head. But again, it's a warm and sympathetic book that mostly boils down to "be as healthy as you can, and love the skin you're in" which isn't terrible advice by a long shot. ( )

I found this book an interesting, if contradictory, read. Partly it's a self-help, know-thyself, love-thyself kind of read, with practical tips on living a healthier lifestyle. But then there are a load of fashion tips thrown in - what shoes to wear, which handbags are to die for, that sort of thing. This isn't too surprising, given Spencer's job as a fashion editor, but I definitely enjoyed and related to the former bits more than the latter. And on Spencer's recommendation, I am now going to try making homemade yoghurt - so that was a useful consequence of this read. ( )
