Spoiler alert! If you are on my Christmas list and under say 25, you are getting this book, so stop reading!
Robyn Moreno has created a manual for life. Practically Posh isn’t just about being practical, it is a how to book on just about everything in life. The chapters cover all of the bases from how to decorate, to how to ask for a raise and there is even a chapter on volunteering and going green.
The information is presented in a comfortable and visually pleasing style. You feel as if you are chatting with a girlfriend, not getting sage advice from a soccer mom. (no offense intended here) The thing is, it is sage advice. There are tips on what goods and services to splurge on and what to save money on, (ie. Buy the better foundation, but save on mascara) how to be a better boss, how to shop vintage and thrift stores, what to bring on trips, how to buy wine, when to buy organic and when to pass. The list goes on and on!
It is amazing how much Moreno was able to cover in the glossy, photo filled 242 pages. When I say that it covers everything, I am not kidding. Just look at these chapter titles;
In the Kitchen
Poised & Cultured
Practically Posh was a fun and I am not ashamed to say that I learned a lot. Still, I think I will stand by my disclaimer above. This is geared toward the girls that are just starting out in the world. I have already purchased extra copies to give as gifts and I know that they will be just perfect!
