I always enjoy Ondo Lady's reviews on her blog. From her review, here's a self-help book I'd like to read: Beautiful Within: Finding Happiness and Confidence in Your Own Skin. Ondo Lady indicates that it's more down to earth than other self-help books on the market.
The book is by Mica (pronounced mee-sha) Paris, who is now a presenter on BBC UK's What Not to Wear (the new What Not to Wear sans Trinny and Susannah doesn't seem to be available on BBC America). Unfortunately, this book has not been marketed in the U.S.
Some twenty years ago, Glamour singled out Mica as one to watch as a singer. The video of her song "My One Temptation" received play on VH1, but she never broke out as an artist in the U.S.
Check out Mica channeling Dionne Warwick in the video My One Tempation on YouTube. Enjoy!
