I found this book very helpful. Having always been more a tomboy than anything else, having a very girly girl has been very eye opening for me! I have sought ideas from a lot of places, but was very pleased to find a book that gave me a multitude of ideas that I can use with my beautiful girl....and for myself. We all want to be more beautiful, and I was extremely pleased to find a book that was so practical and covered so many areas that I hadn't even considered before! I would give this book a 4/5. It is a great resource.....especially for those of us tomboy mommas who have girly girls!
