On our weekend date,
Mark and I went to a favorite bookstore
where we love to gather a few books
and meet in the cafe
to share a cinnamon scone
conversations about the books
that have captured our attention!
I picked up the wonderful new arrival ~
How To Be A Hepburn
in a Hilton World
The Art of Living with Style, Class, and Grace.
By Jordan Christy
Inside I discovered how Jordan gave a voice
to some of the issues
I have been thinking about
Mainly... Where are all the
ladies in our current day culture
hiding out these days?
it was a short, easy to enjoy book,
I ended up reading the book
right there on the spot!
here are some of the things
this book had to say ~
Today's women need to take back
our dignity by being real women
brains, beauty, and self respect.
(As opposed to the women the media
gives all the attention to ~ so aptly put...
with the antics of some women the tabloids
have no need to print stories about
two headed alien babies.)
Some of the advice and tips were...
(what I like to refer to my classroom talk as
Get rid of the short short skirts
and sheer cleavage showing tops.
Ditch getting drunk
and using colorful language.
Why settle for K-Fed type guys just
because you are lonely and desparate.
Stand up taller - improve your posture.
Get rid of reality shows
and become a woman of interest ~
take a pilates or yoga class instead.
Build up your mind,
make eye contact,
Do nice things for other people.
Less is more in the make up department.
Choose your friends wisely.
This is a book I would love for all my nieces
and young friends to read.
It is a good quick read for all women.
With lots of references to Audrey Hepburn
and Jane Austin ~ with a lot of suggestions
on developing your own style
I loved it and think
most women would too
as it confirms what a lot of us are already
