ON THE SHELF: The Essentials of Fabulous

Being fabulous ain't an easy job.
Even the word 'fabulous' can be a little daunting at times, sounding like something unattainable or reserved for the rich and famous. That is where Ellen Lubin-Sherman comes in with her book, 'The Essentials of Fabulous', a modern blueprint to attaining a life well lived.
(Readers of Lily Lemontree should be very familiar with Ellen's name. We have been beyond lucky to have Ellen as a regular contributor here, schooling us on the social graces and their necessary place in our professional and social lives.)
In her book, which is full of the humorous wit Ellen is known for, (I kid you not, I've read it cover to cover 3 times and continue to return, highlighter in hand, on a regular basis for insight and entertainment, this little lovely had me hooked from the very first page) she sets out the essential tools for us "to transform yourself into one of those amazing creatures that infiltrate our lives and ignite our dreams with their swagger, energy, pizzazz, and soigné charm"providing simple strategies to be the very best 'you', every single day of your life.
It takes a little charm, a little flair, a little authenticity and of course a little bit of effort all of which Ellen, a successful public speaker and life coach, outlines in eleven entertaining steps. This progressive manifesto is a definite must-read for anyone wanting to put their very best foot forward, from the college graduate navigating a new life chapter to the middle-agers and beyond who are 'finding' their place once again.
Pick up your copy of 'The Essentials of Fabulous' and get inspired to live the life of a charming, genuine, competent individual-in other words, a fabulous you!
