The French Women Don't Get Fat Cookbook by Mireille Guiliano
10 of 10 people found the following review helpful
I have been following Mireille's guidelines from both of the previous books for just over 2 years. I lost 1.5 stone thanks to the first book and have kept it off without any great effort. I loved the recipes in the other books, so when I saw this cookbook, I snapped it up.

The book is full of anecdotes which is very much Mireille's style. I like this but even if you don't, the recipes stand on their own. And very tasty they are too.

They are easy to prepare, offer some new ideas which I hadn't come across elsewhere (especially for sauces for pasta) and don't have a whole list of complicated ingredients which are difficult to obtain. Everything is available from the… Read more
Who What Wear: Celebrity and Runway Style for Real&hellip by Katherine Power
This book gives an excellent breakdown of both how fashion works and how to tweak your outfits to give them a stylish edge. Unlike many fashion guides, it doesn't insist you rush out to buy new things but explains how to take items from your existing wardrobe and add extra touches to make them more stylish.

From its guide to how fashion filters from the catwalk and how to interpret the looks, to explanations of what to wear when, this book is both a great read and a practical source of information.
Braun Satinliner Hair Straighteners by Braun
7 of 7 people found the following review helpful
These straighteners are amazing. They really work on my fine, wavy hair which has a lot of static in it and generally doesn't behave. They heat up fast, don't damage my hair and really straighten it. Does exactly what it says on the tin!

Lots of people recommended GHDs but they make my hair look really limp. These Braun straighteners work really well, the ion setting sorts out the static in my hair and the fact that you can change the temperature is great. I've had loads of comments about how great my hair looks and for once I won't be having it chopped off because I can't control it.

I can't recommend these highly enough. Buy them - you won't regret it.
