Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A really classy, beautifully produced and most attractive little book on fashion, beauty, travel, food, homemaking and fun; getting the most out of life, high class. Itâs got the lot from how to look after cashmere to clubbing etiquette, through cooking breakfast, on-line shopping and gardening hints but all done with great style, little effort and lots of fun. An enormous amount of topics are covered, enough to keep you fascinated and informed for half a year!

The Goddess Guide by Gisele Scanlon

Written for time-strapped women wanting quality, authentic experiences, The Goddess Guide uncovers the secrets of living an unforgettable and desirable life. All things divine in urban hangouts and rural retreats are revealed, as lifestyle trends are demystified for women left bewildered by the departure of Sex and the City. Gisèle has tried and tested everything for you and has picked up advice from a throng of fashion houses and celebrities along the way – from Dolce & Gabbana to Miss Piggy; Narcisco Rodriguez to Laura Mercier; from Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis to award winning Chef Heston Blumenthal. And now Gisèle has picked out the best bits from her personal diary and address book to reveal insider information, glamour secrets and a multitude of heavenly recommendations, certain to transform lives from the mundane to the magical.

The life-enhancing content includes: what you should have in your make-up bag to tackle every problem; how to sell your clothes on eBay; the dos and don'ts of shoes according to Christian Louboutin; the best way to get value out of that little black dress; plucking the neatest eyebrows; getting extra legroom when booking a flight; planning a divine date; booking a hotel with the comfiest bed; entertaining with champagne; looking after cashmere; de-cluttering your home; buying jeans to lengthen your legs; finding gifts for the trickiest people and instructions from Linda Evangelista's trainer on honing a small behind.

As sumptuous and approachable as a glossy magazine, this gorgeous style-bible is both fixer and facilitator – destined to be your new best friend, personal, trend-setting concierge and ultimate Goddess Guide.
