The Essentials of Fabulous

The Essentials of Fabulous

I just returned from a ‘fabulous’ six days in New York. It really is a special time at Christmas with all the lights and excitement…..more of my adventures in a later post. I just wanted to share with you a must-get book for Christmas gift giving. I have just placed an order for a dozen to have on hand for last minute gifts for all the fabulous girlfriends, guyfriends, relatives, and for all the fabulous people you haven’t met yet.

“No one is born fabulous,” author Ellen Lubin-Sherman writes. “You have to decide to do it—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.” The Essentials of Fabulous guides you to set yourself apart in this “whatever” world by paying scrupulous attention to detail. It shows you how passion, enthusiasm, attitude, superior manners, and a terrific personal style will catapult you right into the fabulous pantheon.

So I recommend that you definitely get a copy for yourself and while you are at it get as many as you can for all the fabulous people in you life.

Happy Fabulous to all of you!!

  22. New York is thee place. However, Bangkok Thailand is great as well. I grew up in New York but open our Interior Design firm in Bangkok 12 years ago. Great place. It has some of those cool overtones that NY has. It's not New York....But cool none the less.

  23. This is indeed a fabulous post :p

    Great job blogging and I hope you'll continue!

    Hi Patricia, I wanted to tell you that after reading your post in December of the must read book The Essentials of Fabulous I have been very inspired. I read it and then gave it to my family and friends. It is one of those life changing books. Thank you so much for recommending it. It will be a book that I will keep close by.

  25. Surely you need to give this to those people who are NOT fabulous yet ;) Sounds like a great and very unique book though, I'm intrigued!
