Buff Brides: The Complete Guide to Getting in Shape and Looking Great for Your Wedding Day
Sarah Kelly (Foreword), Sue Fleming

Review: It works and it's fun. I bought this book on a friend's recommendation. I was sceptical about keeping motivate following guidelines from a book, but it's been great so far. My fiance has joined me in the routine, so he's going to be a buff groom. The way the weekly routines are mixed keeps it from getting monotonous. We have noticed a dramatic change in the shape of our bodies and we are only a couple of months into the routine.

The 21st Century Beauty Bible
Sarah Stacey, Josephine Fairley

Review: This is a fantastic book. Don't think if you bought the last one you will be duplicating your purchase. This is all-new and even better. The authors debate honestly the high-tec versus natural approach and admit to compromising when performance is lacking - make-up for example. There is a comprehensive stockist guide - you don't have to live in London to benefit - and the book itself is beautiful. The website is also very good. I can't praise this book highly

Beauty Scoop: The Indispensable Guide to the Best Beauty Products on the Market
Julia Carling, Kate Shapland

Review: There is so much information contained in such a small book, when first reading it, it is hard to believe there is so much included about all different aspects of beauty to include face care, body care and make up to mention just a few. Each section is dedicated to a certain aspect of beauty and you are able to read about application techniques, do's and don't's, as well as the best products which are not necessarily the most expensive on the market which is good, also they are tested by the public which makes the reviews more believeable. I have read the book several times and each time I learn something new about beauty.
