Picked up this book on a random recommendation from someone who knew that I like self help books. I have to say that this is not the normal self help, in fact it is packed with practical tips that I have used and that have changed my life. Although I had never heard of Maria Menounos prior to reading this book I am impressed by her tips and suggestions and I would recommend this to any young woman, particularly someone starting out in life.

This book really is brilliant. I've bought several books that are similar to this and this one is by far, the best. Maria is so down to earth & her tips & tricks are fabulous. She really seems to know what she is talking about and if she hasn't come up with the idea herself, she doesn't take the credit... she tells us her source.
I'd recommend this to any woman really of any age.
She shows you tip about make-up, exercise etc. Even the 'lazy girls exercise' that you can do while lying on your bed!
The quality of the book is brilliant. The paper quality, the photos taken, all of it is fab.
It's addictive, informative & just plain brilliant.
She is constantly giving you ideas of how to save money and she doesn't use the 'expensive' things herself, despite the money she must have. Yes she's got an amazing house that will have cost a fortune... but she also has her parents living with her, the face wash she uses is Dermalogica & the mascara she uses is plain old L'oreal. I admire this girl and although I have now finished reading the book all the way through, I will keep it out on my table so I can go to it whenever I want to have another quick look.
I do think this book will be read many times over.
Thank you Maria. Please do another one soon.

Maria is such an inspiration for her humility, diligence, and perseverance. I didn't think I was going to learn much, but I like her personality, hence, purchased this book. I was, however, pleasantly surprise by the quality and honesty of its content (not very impressed by references to KK, though... Maria you have a lot more class and depth than having Kim Kardashian as a friend). I also loved the photos, which are a great portrayal of Maria's life and her love for her family and fur babies.

Love it! It geaves handy advice for every aspect a woman needs- from nails and make up to cleaning and decorating. If you want to organize your life, if you want new ideas this is the right book. I have read it twice and was very useful. I have learned that it took Maria 2 years to write it! Also, you get along with the enthusiasm and the spirit the she has, it is transformed into the sentences she use. Definately reccomend it! Also very good for a present, for every age.

Very cheap considering how much information the book contains, which ranges from How to do make up and hair to travelling lightly and keeping your everyday life stress free. I think it contains a lot of good advice that you can factor into your everyday life and it's a good coffee table book to flick through whenever you need some inspiration :) -The book was stated as a 'used - Good' for its condition, but the copy i recieved looked practically new. It also came well within the estimated delivery time date, so it was a quick delivery :)

This book is fantastic.
Maria is an inspiration, she explains how she became so successful, how she has sustained great relationships, a great home and a great figure. My favourite chapter was the one about organisation, she gives some really great tips.
I bought it on Kindle but have now ordered the paperback version as well so that I can have it as a reference book.
If you're thinking about buying this, do it! You will not be disappointed.
