I absolutely love this book, it is a must for any fashion lover. The book is a mish mash of written parts and tips, lovely images and so much more. It is not so much a book you'd read cover to cover but something you can pick up, open on any page and read a little bit to lighten your day or learn something new.

It has sections with City Guides (London, Paris, NY) which are great with some lovely little unknown shop/restaurant tips. There is a little cookery chapter with a few recipes (all lovely), some truly fabulous tips on shopping/eating in London. I consider myself to know a lot of great places in London but some of this I hadn't head about and are hard to beat!

I am buying anout 6 copies of this book for my best friends for Christmas, I really can't rate this book enough. It's fantastic!!

The "Goddess Experience" is a follow on from the "Goddess Guide", which I absolutely ADORED, so I was eager to see what the "Goddess Experience" had to offer and it didn't let me down! This book is amazing, it's like a scrapbook full of really handy tips on fashion, travel and beauty. If you're looking for the perfect girlie Christmas gift, look no further, there isn't a girl alive that won't LOVE this book.

I picked up this book because it looked so pretty and I thought it would probably make a good beach read and yes, it was! However it has a deeper side to it asking "Just what makes you happy?" I had been feeling a bit low recently and, after reading this, I made my own list and realised that it really is the everyday things around me that I take for granted that make me happy. The book is beautifully written and presented and a great travel guide for some of the most fascinating cities in the world. The author is warm and witty and the beauty tips are fantastic not to mention the recipe for scones! Fabulous book, I highly recommend! :0)

I can only chime in with the few others who rated this book only poor and I absolutely agree that it is not even coming close to its forerunner. I actually feel a bit sorry for Gisele, cos she now revealed a side of herself that just makes her no longer standing out from the crowd. She's simply listing items on long lists as if she had been paid to do so (hello, Elle, anyone?) and let's not even discuss her "wanna be fun- writer" attempts. She's struggling to put catchy thoughts together and her style of writing reminds me more of "Seventeen" than anything else. Her illustrations are the only bit that come across a tad more authentic and special, the rest is for the round file... though even then I'd give it a proper review girl... those typos are really shocking!

If, like me. you buy this primarily because its pretty; the graphics, typography, illustrations and ideas appeal to you, then you should be happy with your purchase. If you buy it as some sort of serious guide to fashion, life and travel then you may be disappointed. Not because those things aren't included but because this book is all about appearance. Its appearance is great - the gold cover the riot of colourful pages inside, the clash of pictures, photos, words everything. It can make some of the pages difficult to read however. Also if you are concerned with content over style then reading 5 pages about the delights of macaroons may not be your thing.

So in truth if you are interested in art or graphics or anything in between then this may appeal to you. It is a very attractive book and would make a nice gift. As a lifestyle guide its far too disjointed and following its own random path.

The Goddess Experience: Custom-made for You

After reading the Goddess Guide and absolutely loving every page I was counting down the days for the Goddess Experience to hit the shelves. I had high expectations and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Every page is filled with authentic tips, observations (so well and amusingly described) and hidden treasures. It is a gorgeous book that conquers every aspect of every girl's day-to-day life! It's written in a way that I felt like I was going on the journey with the author, Gisele Scanlon. Every page is a treat - it really is the ultimate goddess experience!

I would recommend the Goddess Experience to anyone who wants the perfect chill out book - great for the coffee table (beautifully put together) and on the go (I am going to New York next week and this book will be my travel guide). This book is the perfect gift to treat yourself or your loved ones, anytime.

Another winner from Gisele. Quite simply she is the sister you wished you had. Her second book The Goddess Experience continues on the theme of Happiness... beautifully illustrated with exquisite colours, drawings, images. Packed with information, bits of gossip, ideas, interviews, anecdotes. I love this book, along with her first 'Goddess' book. This again a winner and quite simply for the Goddess in you!

This book is perfect for a small gift, and is a really feel good book.
There are tips on happiness, lifestyle and creativity, however the feel is more memoir than a guide.
The text is rather small and sometimes the graphics get in the way of the text.
Apart from this a really good buy, and I would definitely recommend this.
