Summer Reads for 2010 =)

Reasons why I want to read these books:

  1. About Face by Scott Barnes: I visited Bubblegarm's blog last month and I read her blog about this book. I was amazed on how Scott Barnes book showed different make-up tricks for different ethnic backgrounds. When it came to coverage, he gave advice on what color concealer to use for your skin tone. Since I'm a little dark-skinned ( especially over the summer), I usually have trouble looking for the right concealer or foundation. My lack of knowledge for finding the right undertone for me has always been a disaster...even till now! So I hope to read book and look through the tips he has for women like me =).

  2. Makeup Manual by Bobbi Brown: Yes everyone, another make-up book...however, it's from a different make-up artist this time. For those of you who don't know Bobbi Brown, she's one of the most extraordinary make-up artists in the make-up industry. She has her own make-up line called Bobbi Brown and you can find most of her products in places like Sephora. Since I love Bobbi Brown as a make-up artist I thought it was great that she has a book out to share her skill. The book has step by step diagrams which is great for those of us who are new or scared of trying on make-up.

  3. Naturally Thin by Bethenny Frankel: If you watch Real Housewives of NYC then you know who Bethenny Frankel is!!! She is beautiful, witty, smart, funny, and has a freakin' HOT BODY! I'm just a huge Frankel's not even funny. I dream of having a body just like hers! But anyway, I've heard so many great things about her book and how it has changed people's lives (and waist line). Even though I've never read a dieting book in my LIFE, her theories are mainly common sense and she very straight-forward from what I've seen, read and heard so far. I'm so excited to read and maybe even BUY this book because our health is very important and it's definitely something we should invest on.

  4. The Secret: This is going to seem stupid but I've been wanting to read this book since high school. The only problem is that every time I go to the library to see if it's's never freakin' there! It's making me mad because I don't like to buy books right away unless I'm truly convinced that it's the right book for me! I mean, I've been wanting to read this book since 12th I'm 20! I guess this book is still popular as heck around my neck of the woods. Well, anyway...a reason why I want to read this book is because a friend of mine back in high school said this book is pretty life changing and it gives you advice about being happy. Once I heard that, I wanted to read it right away...and maybe even  punch the next person who was going to put their hands on it. Cause I'll be honest, I'm ALL about happiness...and who isn't? I feel like each and every single one of us is always looking for something that can truly make us happy or even give us a little guidance in the right direction. I mean, I'm not saying this book will make you happier than ever but I think it could inspire you =) and inspiration is something I'm always looking for =D.
