This book belongs to Simone. But one day, when Rena and I were eating in her room (it's a long long story involving Golden Week), my eyes happened to fall upon this book. It just so happens that I had lent her my "Friends" book (same series) so the books looked like a set when my eyes fell upon them. So before I begin, I should start with my friend's comment "The friends book seems to be written for older people and the glamour book for kids."

And you know what? Her comment sums up the two books

I knew the second I got a chance to read "The Girls' Book Of Glamour: A Guide To Being A Goddess" by Sallie Jeffrie I was in for a treat. Part "etiquette guide for girls" and part "life skills tips" it's a comprehensive how-to manual geared for the Young Adult market in a time of conflicting media and societal messages, that're making a lot of women feel insecure about themselves. This book does just the opposite, it strives to make the reader feel good about themselves, instead.

I absolutely loved this book! I love all the books from this series. I bought my mother the "For the Grandmother Who's Best at Everything" book and read the whole thing within an hour. These books have that vintage wisdom to them, where they give you helpful tips on how to act like a young lady, how to apply makeup, fashion tips, and ways to take care of your hair. I'm 26 and received this book for Christmas, just because I love etiquette type of books that give you pointers on how a lady should ...more

Note: This review DOES contain spoilers of the events in the book, so if you have not read it before and wish to discover the secrets of the book for yourself, it is not suggested that you read this. --A.M.G.

Don't understand why, but this book really calms me down when I read it. Treating every girl as if she is a goddess with beauty accepted in every which-way, I encourage girls of all ages to read this and try some things out. Visually appealing as well, just the drawings are enough to make me

The make your own lip gloss turned out awfully it was basically grease!
The bubble bath was awesome I have made it many many times!
The perfume gets old and is a really long process.
I have good things to say and bad things to say about these "treatments"
Also one last thing I saw another's review about this book and she was saying that it was based of of only American-European girls
that is absolutely true and that's terrible!

THE GIRLS' BOOK OF GLAMOUR by Sally Jeffrie is a short, cute read all about how to be the best, prettiest, most confident girl you can be.

The book is written in sections, with titles such as How to Customize Your School Uniform, How to Make Your Own Lip Gloss, and even How to Soothe Tired Feet.

The book is great for giving good ideas on how to clean your makeup brushes, exit a limo properly, and make tie-dyed shirts in a fun manner. All of these thi

It may look kind of juvenile but it's another quick go to guide for certain things like beauty routines I forget. For instance it gives a pretty solid step by step to wash your hair, how to pose in front of a camera, how to apply conditioner, how to act confident when your not. Stuff like that.

This book did not meet me expectations at any rate. Some topics were so hopeful and I can't wait to do them, like the topic, How to make your own lip gloss, or the topic, How to jazz up a boring ponytail. Yet others seemed completely pointless and stupid such as, How to order food in a restaurant or How to be a hand model. Why would I want to be a hand model? I only gave this book a 2 and not a 1 because there were a couple I was very surprised to know, but on the other hand I really don't care ...more

Want tips of how to pamper yourself, relax, or just plain out have a little girly fun? This is your book! It tells you helpful things that really make you feel good, like how to treat yourself to the perfect bath, or how to braid flowers into your hair! I've gotten some good times out of this book, so I hope all my fellow hard working girls out there who just need a break enjoy this book as much as I have!

I like this book because of the things it teaches you. It teaches you how to be sophisticated, but not to be a snot. It shows you can be beautiful by being kind and being yourself. It's just an uplifting book, great for girls who want to be their self, great for for all girls. It shows you don't have to wear expensive clothes, or look like the popular girls in school to be beautiful.

Gives beauty tips. This book was a little better than the first one but it's still nothing special.

I bought this book at Meijer’s hoping that it would be a good book. It was good I guess but I wouldn't have paid the 9 dollars that I did for it. It was worth one read but after that not really.

i found some the information giving in this book to be false, such as the proper temperature to wash your hair. Some of the tips also don't work for certain girls like myself because this book is based off a typical European-American in my opinion and what seems to be in all of the pictures.

I really like this book. It has tons of tips for fashion,makeup,fun and games.The only reason I don't give it a 5 star rating is because some if the tips are pointless, I mean COME ON!! who would need to know "how to make people believe you are a hand model???!!!" Overall,great book
Karen
Obviously it wasn't the best book for its plot line. I received this book when I was younger, of course, but it is a good how-to book that any girl could find some use of. Filled with many tips on how to look and act your best, The Girls' Book of Glamour is a great gift for young girls.

This book is so much fun! My little sister and I tried out most of the things. The ones we tried worked, and by the time we were done we were laughing so hard we couldn't get up. It was fun to pamper ourselves at home and find out cool new random hacks.

Based on the fact that the advice regarding make up is to get your parent's permission and save your pocket money, I may not be the ideal target audience based on the fact that I'm 41 1/2. Though it was an amusing way to spend a Sunday afternoon .

As it say on the back cover:"After all, every girl deserves a life of glamour!" This book can make you become a godesse, well maybe i'm exagerating some things are a bit silly but it's always fun to have non realistic books isn't it?

I got this book when I was in high school. Almost 6 years ago and I only got to read it again today. It's a cute book teaching on how to improve and love yourself more. I also love how it has doodles on it that makes it fun.

This is a fun book for girls at a slightly more mature age to read for fun! It is a great book to bed read in order to enhance girl's knowledge of what to be on the lookout for but also fun for parents to be aware of!
