This is the book that I will be using to get me through the holidays. I will finally be home right before Thanksgiving and to prepare for a few holiday gatherings, I’m relying on Esther Blum’s Eat, Drink, and Be Gorgeous motto. Why? Because she does not berate you for wanting that extra drink, but she encourages you to choose your drinks wisely. Basically is a cosmopolitan better than an extra dirty martini? Not only is the book an adorable read, but the illustrations are perfect for any girl who who wants to get party ready and not give up her entire life. I love food too much to give up everything. Life is too short too eat bad food or drink bad wine. Esther makes wanting to get in top shape fun. Never dull, boring, or repetitive. I didn’t think the book has that "preachy" feeling that most diets book have. I loved knowing that anytime I need to tweak my routine to fit into one of my "way too many" cocktail dresses, I can refer back to EDG and have no problem strutting my stuff and strutting it well.
Eat, Drink and Be Gorgeous is available at bookstores now.
