Editorial Reviews

New York Daily News
What makes this book different from the best-selling “Rules” is that it’s written in a more uplifting, less sanctimonious tone, and offers a money-back guarantee if you don’t marry the man of your choosing in three years…--Alev Aktar, New York Daily News, Jan. 17, 2002

Read an Excerpt

Excerpt from Chapter 2

 

You'll never meet Prince Charming (or Prince William) unless you're ready to go to the ball.

 

"...Make sure your clothes are flattering.  Don’t get caught up in trends unless they look utterly fabulous on you.  Don’t worry, if the hot trend isn’t right for you, there will be another one coming along any minute.  (Hey, kind of like men.)

Always dress as though you might meet “the guy” no matter where you’re going.  No, I’m not saying you should be sleeping, eating and pumping gas in a miniskirt and strappy sandals.  Just be sure that no matter where you go, or what you’re doing, you always look your best.  Figure out the most flattering colors and styles for your coloring and body type, and wear them every day.  If you’re not sure, ask a couple of close girlfriends to be brutal with your duds, and pick their three favorite and most-hated of your outfits.  If you keep hearing the same thing over and over (Sure those pants are nice, if you’re going for a truck-stop mechanic look…) you can assume it’s probably true.  Look for patterns in their likes and dislikes.  Does everybody love you in green?  Wear more green!  Keep hearing gray makes your complexion look like canned meat?  Cut it out of your wardrobe, or at least don’t wear it close to your face.  Pay attention to what you’re wearing on the days you receive the most compliments.  Figure out what’s causing the big stir, and whatever it is, color or style or both, wear more of it. 

Refresh your lipstick throughout the day.  Run a brush through your hair before you hit the street.  Check your shoes for toilet paper before you leave a public restroom.  (This is good advice for life, not just when you’re looking to meet the man of your dreams.) Be prepared.  That way, if you do end up meeting Mr. Right while you’re out walking the dog, you won’t have to strategically veil your face with your hand because you’ve got that little fu-man-chu thing growing on your chin.

Here’s where it gets really good.  The dream girls know it is terribly important to indulge in some little treat for yourself at least once a week.  Get a body scrub, or a massage.  Have your nails done or get the muck steamed out of your pores.  Try the entire menu of girlie delights until you find what makes you feel the most beautiful and relaxed, and then do it over and over again like some kind of supermodel opiate.  Aside from making your outside more beautiful, your soul will reap the benefits as well.  There is nothing more important and soothing than caring for yourself as a standard of your life.

Now, I’m sure you’re thinking- who does this book person think I am?  Ivana Trump? I don’t have the money to blow $85 on a facial every week!

I promise, I’m not insane.  Not many of us have the money to do that.  The fact is, you can indulge yourself with a myriad of girlie-girl treats for nothing more than hamburger money.  Hey, I wouldn’t insist you needed a facial every week without telling you how to get it, would I?  Of course not!
