"Unforgettable You" by Diasy Fuentes Book Review and Giveaway.--CLOSED



UNFORGETTABLE YOU by Daisy Fuentes

"Master the Elements of Style, Spirituality and True Beauty"
"Become a Classic Girl in a Modern World"



Unforgettable You: Master the Elements of Style, Spirituality, and True Beauty


I must admit that when I was first asked to read and review this book I wasn't sure how much I'd like it.   I was never really part of the MTV generation and not all that familiar with Daisy Fuentes.  Plus I'm not much into "self help" type books.   So I admit that I was surprised to find out how much I enjoyed reading it.  

The book is primarily a guide to things that Daisy Fuentes has learned over the years that she hopes can help other.   She started out in the modeling world, then progressed to TV weather girl, MTV host, and recently successful businesswoman.    Along the way she's learned many things about how to navigate and be viewed positively in many environments.   I was expecting mostly items about fashion and beauty and some about relationships, and that was all there.  There were also quotes and helpful hints from people in Daisy's life or people she's met along her journey.

But just as much if not more of the book was about how to act like a lady and be seen as respectful in a world that today seems to be fascinated with girls with no underwear and who can accumulate the longest list of drunken hook ups or a plethora of sexual conquests.   She talks about how to value yourself and behave and look in a manner that will cause others to respect you and treat you well in return.  

The chapters titles:

WHO ARE YOU?  BABY, WHO ARE YOU?
Knowing Who you Are

JUST LIKE A WOMAN
Grace. Elegance, and Etiquette

I'LL BE THERE FOR YOU
Navigating Relationships with Men, Family, and Friends

LET'S TALK ABOUT SEX, BABY
Sex Etiquette 101

SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN
Spirituality and Giving

PRETTY WOMAN
Notes on Beauty

MY BACK PAGES
Letters and Questionnaires

The book is a fairly easy one to read.   But you can take quite a bit of time utilizing the tools or quizzes she includes in the book to explore your own values and likes.   The book contains many quizzes that you can fill out as you go along, or you can go back later and complete them after finishing the book.  

I think the book could also be useful for parents of girls who want their daughters to grow up behaving in a fashion that attracts people to them for all the right reasons instead of the wrong reasons.  There are a few fairly explicit terms or phrases in the book, but nothing too offensive for older teen girls.
