    1. 2.0 stars? I think that's good enough.I read this book in a breeze. 20 minutes tops. Not because I loved it or anything, but because it is short. Very short. Not complaining there though.I'm not one for reading memoirs but yeah, this book was handed to me and I have nothing else to read.Let's start off with the cover. Hells yeahs, it's very cute. I mean it's in pink! Who doesn't find a book wrapped in pink cute? It's also beautiful naked. Like yep, I did the whole book shimmy thing with this one [...]

    2. This is a great "wake-up call" for anyone obsessed with vanity, fashion, celebrities, and beauty. Written and illustrated by a fashion/beauty junkie who has lived through many decades of changing fashions--this book offers humorous words of wisdom regarding beauty, self image, and the more important things in life. You know how in childrens books where there are lots of pictures with paragraphs here and there? This is pretty much the same format except it's for adult women. This book, I think, w [...]

    3. This was short and cute with a simple lesson: love yourself the way you are. Beckerman spends half the book writing about her obsession with her looks and the other half with letters (that she never sends) to her granddaughter and celebrities. Funny and amusing. And a very quick read.

    4. Two words: Not impressed.I felt this book was indulgent on the author's part. It felt like she was just writing a long letter or journal to her granddaughters.Pretty much what you get out of this is: be who are you are, and be proud of it.

    5. Very critical book- supposed to be funny and tongue-in-cheek but just made me feel bad until the very last page.

    6. I bought this off and don't remember it, so that tells you how good it was (or wasn't). I don't think I finished it.
