Bonding Over Beauty ---loved this book!

I have been reading this book for the last two weeks and I must say I have read such great ideas to implement with me and my girls!  This book is by Erika Katz, a former model and actress, and she has used what she has learned over time to help with her own daughter and her growing up into a young lady.  She presents all of this material is such a way that we, moms, can teach our daughters in a "bonding" and fun way.

Ever since my Katie has approached age 11, I've been gathering info on things like hygiene, inside and outside beautification,  puberty and beyond years, and so much more!  This book has been such a fun and practical way of learning(for myself and for teaching my girls!).  It has really helped with the "why" of the things us women do.  I don't know if you are anything like me, but once I know the "why," things just stick with me more!  Or at least I start to do them more!  I will definitely keep this book as my reference---I have so many pages dog-eared!

This book has given me some great ideas for facial scrubs, ways to prevent the need for botox --haha!!!--most moms would love to pass this one on and to apply it too, the "perfect" ponytail, great recommendations for certain affordable brands for make-up, removal, and more!   It even teaches about nutrition--one of my favorite topics!  I'd have to say the one word that wraps this book up is practical!   I did receive this book for free by the Greenleaf Book Group Press to review.  I had no idea what a great asset this would be to my "library."  Thanks Greenleaf and Ms. Katz!
Their website is a great resource too!!

The publishing company is sending me an extra copy to give away--be on the look out next week for a great giveaway!!!

Wow! That sounds like a great book! I'll have to make note of that for my daughter.
