Great Spring Reads!

Hello cookies! With wedding season here, I have been away for longer than I would like, but it's great to be back! (smile)

As promised, I have several books that I would like to recommend to add to your personal library. You will love these books, I guarantee it! I always love hearing your own personal reviews of the books, so please feel free to contact me.

First, I bring you a great fiction read by Dean R. Koontz:

This book is absolutely touching, and amazing. It is a story that follows the journey of two brothers, (one autistic, but brilliant), and their will to stick together despite the loss of their mother. I don't want to give too much away, but trust me on this---this book is a must read!
I had the pleasure of meeting celebrity make-up artist, and Tyra Banks bff, Sam Fine years ago. He not only inspired me to model professionally, but also to freelance as a make-up artist. In his book, 'Fine Beauty' he shares many tricks of the trade through an array of amazing pictorials. Love it!
The late Kevin Aucoin was an amazing celebrity make-up artist that passed away from a brain tumor. The legacy he left behind, was powerful. Not only his own cosmetic line, but this is one of his first books. Again, fabulous pictorials, testimonials, and celebrity make-overs.
Part of my job is too understand all women, and their beauty related needs/concerns. I purchased, 'How Not To Look Old', to gain more of an understanding, and sensitivity for my "graceful" clientele. Charla Krupp breaks down everything from clothing to eye-wear, hair color, make-up, and more. This is a must have read for everyone thirty five years of age, and above! Heck, I even learned a thing or too :)
Okay, I am not a finatic, but this book changed my life. I am now a proud Vegetarian, aka Veggie Gal. I never thought that I would make, "the switch", but after reading such a straight forward fact based book on the meat industry in our country, I knew this change was right for my life. Who knew of all the "icky stuff" the government allows in our food? I am proud to say, since I made the switch, I have lost twenty one pounds, gained more energy, and I feel better about my decision from an environmental/animal rights stand point. If your not interested in changing to the "Veg" lifestyle, still read this book, and learn of ways you can, at minimum, become healthier.
The last book I bring you 'Toxic Overload', breaks down everything from harmful chemicals in everyday household cleaners, to chemical in cosmetics, etc. Did you know that many people are ill simply due to a "toxic overload?".. This is a must read if you wish to be healthier...

Stay tuned! On my next posting, I will bring you my first, "Gorgeous Guy" alert!
