BOOK REVIEW: EveryGirl's Guide to Life by Maria Menounos

One of my "How the Glitz Stole Christmas" swap goodies was the EveryGirl's Guide to Life by Maria Menounos. I’m like obsessed with it!

EveryGirl's Guide to Life Book Cover

Maria gives her readers tips on just about everything under the sun. 

My favorite tip:
Find a celebrity you admire for their look and style. Recreate their look by tweaking a few small things to fit your preferences. Try to find someone who has similar tastes, skin tone, and hair types.

My celebrity inspiration:
Blake Lively. I mean, really… the girl always looks gorgeous. She’s blonde; I’m blonde. She has thick hair; I have thick hair. Our skin tones are similar. Her style is impeccable and her makeup always looks fantastic.
Yep, Blake Lively is my girl. 

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

Maria suggests saving photos of your celebrity of choice whenever you find ones you like. Keep them on hand to recreate the look at a later date. Try to find pictures for different social situations. Then, you can recreate their look for the different events in your own life (ex. NYE Party, an outdoor date, work, or whatever.)

Here's a few that I found of Ms. Lively that I'd like to replicate in the future.

Who would be your celebrity inspiration?


  1. I have quite the girl crush on Ms. Blake Lively so totally diggin this post!

  2. I need this book, apparently! I'm not sure who my style inspiration would be. I really like Rachel Bilson, but she is so petite and that I am not. I'm on the hunt, now, for my style inspiration. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Such cute picture choices, and thanks for sharing the book! This will be added to the list for sure :)

  4. I love Blake besides being gorgeous she has a great body too, I wish my figure looked like hers.
