How to Walk in High Heels GIVEAWAY

The Girl's Guide to Everything, hmmm quite a big claim, but for a 480 page book I am pretty impressed and cannot think of anything else I need a guide to.  This is a practical guide to being fabulous in all aspects of our life, where nothing is off limits, no challenge ignored, no stone unturned, well you get the picture.  Of course there is a thorough guide to walking in high heels, in ALL scenarios; airport, carpet, car, rug,  escalator, fire escape, to name but a few.
This reference book for stylish women is focussed on useful tips which we can dip in and out of, it's not a patronising 'How to be a Good Wife 1950's - tie a ribbon in your hair and have dinner on the table for your husband' kind of way.  More a glide through life looking your best.  It is written with humour and knowledge.
This bestselling book, is set out in chapters with titles such as 'Being Socially Adept' and 'Joining the Jet set', it is clear in its writing. So straight forward in fact that it almost gave me the confidence to believe I too could actually invest and dabble in the city, place a bet and buy a home.
Camilla Morton is a fashionista, who is lucky enough to be able to call the likes of Manolo Blahnik and John Galliano friends.  Her insights into, how to survive New Year's eve and how to shop for Christmas, will be most helpful in the next few weeks.
The only negative I can think of is that the title and book cover may suggest frivolity, which for me is fine, no I would go further as to say appealling.  However I hope this does not put off other women, because this truly is a must have for us all.
This is a unique book, my own copy has pages turned over and is well used.  Camilla has generously donated a signed copy as a GIVEAWAY.

    My question is how do you minimise and prevent stretch marks? Have a pregnant daughter who is prone to them!

  12. Hi Muskrat, welcome, I hope you enjoy my posts. Take a look at my current post 'Vitamin E' this really helps in preventing stretch marks, your daughter can also use liquid vitamin E on any stretch marks which have appeared in order to minimise them. Join the GIVEAWAY for a chance to win her some. x
