New Looks from Barbara Daly by Barbara Daly
New Looks from Barbara Daly by Barbara Daly
4.0 out of 5 stars She's the master, 8 Jun 2012
This book may be getting on a bit now - like me, but when you look at make up techniques and styles nowadays, it is amazing how similar they are to Barbara's in this book. There are great pictures, and simple to follow techniques for applying make up and creating the looks in the book. As someone who has never felt particularly adept at applying make up, this book was a bit of a revelation and helped change me from an avoider to an artist. Highly recommend.
Shang-a-Lang: Life as an International Pop Idol by Irvine Welsh
5.0 out of 5 stars Roller-lover, 8 Jun 2012
Always wanted to know what went on with the Rollers behind the scenes, and this doesn't disappoint. This book gives a good account of the situation from Les's point of view and for BCR fans, it is information we should all have. Some good pics too, bringing nostalgia for the boys back to the front of my mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly inspirational, 8 Jun 2012
I felt the book was truly written in her own words. And why not, it was her story to tell - and what a story! At times I could feel her tension and fear and elation. A truly inspirational story. Made me feel like I could achieve anything - not that I'd want to do what she did as I'm scared of water. Welcome change from the celebrity bios fluffed out with nothing more than too many adjectives. Highly recommend to others.
