The Curly Girl manifesto is back, now completely revised, updated, and expanded by more than a third with all-new material. Created by curly hair evangelist Lorraine Massey—the go-to curl expert featured in <i>Allure</i>, <i>InStyle</i>, <i>Lucky</i>, <i>Seventeen</i>, and <i>The New York Times</i>; and founder of several curly salons and curly products in New York City—<i>Curly Girl</i> is the surprising bible for the 65 percent of women with naturally curly or wavy hair and a desire to celebrate it.<br /><br /><i>Curly Girl</i> is packed with unique and fail-proof hair-care methods, inspiration, and an empowering pro-curl attitude. It’s all here: daily routines for Botticelli, fractal, and wavy curls; Lorraine’s no-more-shampoo epiphany—<i>handle your hair as gently as you do your best cashmere sweater</i>; homemade lotions and potions. New to this edition: an illustrated, step-by-step guide to trimming your own hair (remember: it’s not what you take off; it’s what you leave on); a section on the <i>particular</i> needs of wavy hair; Lorraine’s Down-and-Dirty Curly Boy Routine; more fabulous ’dos for weddings and other special occasions; a chapter on multi<i>curl</i>tural hair written by an African American specialist. Plus, updated information on green and chemical-free products. From now on, there’s no such thing as a bad hair day.

<p><strong>THE OFFICIAL BOOK, FULLY ENDORSED BY QUEEN ELIZABETH II</strong></p><p><strong>From Her Majesty’s trusted confidant and Dresser Angela Kelly LVO comes a lavishly designed book of never-before-seen photos of The Queen, Her wardrobe and Her jewels and features intimate anecdotes from Angela’s 25-year career working closely with Her Majesty. A truly unique keepsake and collectors’ item to be treasured.  </strong></p><p>‘For the nearly seven decades of her reign, Her Majesty The Queen has used clothing to create a powerful visual identity that transcends fashion and has made her perhaps the most readily identifiable person on the planet. Angela Kelly, building on the work of the great designers and milliners who have worked with Her Majesty through the years – including couturiers Sir Norman Hartnell, Sir Hardy Amies, and Ian Thomas, and milliners such as Simone Mirman and Freddy Fox – brings her own imagination to bear on an iconic ‘uniform’ that suggests continuity and tradition, and ensures that the wearer is always the most visible person in a room or a crowd.’<strong>–Anna Wintour, Vogue</strong></p><p>When Angela Kelly and The Queen are together, laughter echoes through the corridors of Buckingham Palace. Angela has worked with The Queen and walked the corridors of the Royal Household for twenty-five years, initially as Her Majesty’s Senior Dresser and then latterly as Her Majesty’s Personal Advisor, Curator, Wardrobe and In-house Designer. As the first person in history to hold this title, she shares a uniquely close working relationship with The Queen.<br /></p><p>In <em>The Other Side of the Coin</em>, The Queen has personally given Angela her blessing to share their extraordinary bond with the world. Whether it’s preparing for a formal occasion or brightening Her Majesty’s day with a playful joke, Angela’s priority is to serve and support. Sharing never-before-seen photographs – many from Angela’s own private collection – and charming anecdotes of their time spent together, this revealing book provides memorable insights into what it’s like to work closely with The Queen, to curate her wardrobe and to discover a true and lasting connection along the way. </p><p>‘The book documents the unique working relationship between Her Majesty The Queen and the woman who has been her Personal Assistant and Senior Dresser for more than two decades: Angela Kelly. It gives a rare insight into the demands of the job of supporting the Monarch, and we gain privileged insight into a successful working relationship, characterized by humor, creativity, hard work, and a mutual commitment to service and duty. Angela is a talented and inspiring woman, who has captured the highlights of her long career with The Queen for us all to share.’ –<strong>Samantha</strong> <strong>Cohen, Assistant Private Secretary to The Queen (2011–2018)</strong></p><br />

<b>Dr. Josh Axe, bestselling author of <i>Keto Diet</i> and <i>Eat Dirt</i>, explains how to lose weight, prevent disease, improve your digestion, and renew your youth by taking advantage of dietary collagen.</b><br /><br />Today, interest in dietary collagen is growing at an astounding rate, and with good reason. The benefits of a collagen-rich diet are remarkable, ranging from better weight control to enhanced digestion, clearer skin, reduced inflammation, and improved immune function. <br /><br />Dietary collagen provides a unique blend of amino acids and other compounds, making it critical for everyone, including infants, young children, the elderly, athletes, pregnant women, new mothers, and adult men and women. Simply put: When we don't get enough of the beneficial compounds found in collagen-rich foods, we experience more injuries, chronic aches and pain, digestive issues, and other symptoms associated with aging. And most people don't get enough. Collagen is the missing ingredient that can help all of us live longer, healthier, more vital lives.<br /><br />In <i>The Collagen Diet</i>, Dr. Axe describes how collagen helps maintain the structure and integrity of almost every part of the body. You'll learn how your skin, hair, nails, bones, disks, joints, ligaments, tendons, arterial walls, and gastrointestinal tract all depend on the consumption of collagen-rich foods. <br /><br />Featuring a twenty-eight-day meal plan, seventy mouthwatering recipes, and specific advice for supporting your body's collagen production with exercise and lifestyle interventions, <i>The Collagen Diet</i> provides everything you need to take advantage of this overlooked cornerstone of modern health.

Ask a woman about her hair, and she just might tell you the story of her life. Ask a whole bunch of women about their hair, and you could get a history of the world. Surprising, insightful, frequently funny, and always forthright, the essays in <i>Me, My Hair, and I </i>are reflections and revelations about every aspect of women’s lives from family, race, religion, and motherhood to culture, health, politics, and sexuality.<br /><br /> They take place in African American kitchens, at Hindu Bengali weddings, and inside Hasidic Jewish homes. The conversation is intimate and global at once. Layered into these reminiscences are tributes to influences throughout history: Jackie Kennedy, Lena Horne, Farrah Fawcett, the Grateful Dead, and Botticelli’s Venus.<br /><br /> The long and the short of it is that our hair is our glory—<i>and</i> our nemesis, our history, our self-esteem, our joy, our mortality. Every woman knows that many things in life matter more than hair, but few bring as much pleasure as a really great hairdo.<br /><br /><b>"A terrific read for those of us who obsess about our hair. Or those who live with those of us who do. A collection that’s, I dare say, a cut above the rest.” —Mary Morris, author of <i>The Jazz Palace</i></b><br />

Inspired by Paris, this lighthearted and deceptively wise contemporary memoir serves as a guidebook for women on the path to adulthood, sophistication, and style. Jennifer Scott’s self-published success is now a beautifully packaged and fully illustrated gift book, perfect for any woman looking to lead a more fulfilling, passionate, and artful life.<br /><br />Paris may be the City of Light, but for many it is also the City of Transformation. When Jennifer Scott arrived in Paris as an exchange student from California, she had little idea she would become an avid fan of French fashion, lifestyle, and sophistication. Used to a casual life back home, in Paris she was hosted by a woman she calls “Madame Chic,” mistress of a grand apartment in the Sixteenth Arrondissement.<br /> <br />Madame Chic mentors Jennifer in the art of living, with elegance and an impeccably French less-is-more philosophy. Three-course meals prepared by the well-dressed Madame Chic (her neat clothes covered by an apron, of course) lure Jennifer from her usual habit of frequent snacks, junk food, sweatpants, and TV.<br /> <br />Additional time spent with “Madame Bohemienne,” a charming single mother who passionately embraces Parisian<i> joie de vivre</i>, introduces readers to another facet of behind-closed-doors Parisian life.<br /> <br />While Francophiles will appreciate this memoir of a young woman’s adventure abroad, others who may not know much about France will thrill to the surprisingly do-able (yet chic!) hair and makeup lessons, plus tips on how to create a capsule wardrobe with just ten useful core pieces.<br /> <br />Each chapter of <i>Lessons from Madame Chic </i>reveals the valuable secrets Jennifer learned while under Madame Chic’s tutelage—tips you can master no matter where you live or the size of your budget.<br /> <br />Embracing the classically French aesthetic of quality over quantity, aspiring <i>Parisiennes </i>will learn the art of eating (deprive yourself not; snacking is not chic), fashion (buy the best you can afford), grooming (<i>le no-makeup look</i>), among other tips.<br /> <br />From entertaining to decor, you will gain insights on how to cultivate old-fashioned sophistication while living an active, modern life. <i>Lessons from Madame Chic </i>is the essential handbook for a woman that wants to look good, live well, and enjoy that Parisian <i>je ne sais quoi</i> in her own <i>arrondissement.</i>
