Day 4: Your Favorite Book

So the Day 4 topic was my fave book.  Wow.  Honestly.  I haven't read a lot of books lately to even be able to have a fave.  Nonetheless, for this challenge, I'll share a few of the books that I'm loving:

Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual by Bobbi Brown (RM127.81 from Kinokuniya)
I absolutely love this book.  I think if you're starting out with make up and want to learn tips and tricks and improve your make up application skills as well as the types of products to use for your skin (and others), then this is a must have book.  I have a couple other Bobbi Brown books that I've recently purchased but have not had a chance to fully appreciate the contents yet.  I love Bobbi for her simplicity and her philosophy of bringing out the beauty inside a person without having to hide the person under a ton of make up.  Her style is very laid back yet concise.

Generation T by Megan Nicolay ($10.37 from
I'd originally read this book when my mum picked it out for me at the library while we were browsing for books to borrow (actually she was browsing, I was the person who carried the books).  I loved it!  There were just so many ideas to transform a regular T-shirt and I just had to get my own copy.  It totally introduced my to the T-shirt reconstruction community on LiveJournal (I'm not a member, just a viewer) and to an awesome fashion student (then Biology student) called NinjaToshiba (now known as ricesushi02).  There's a sequel to the book with more projects but I think I still like the first one.

The Right Moves by Tina Schwager and Michele Schuerger (RM62.65 from Just 4 You)
This book I've had for 10 years (bought on 6 November 2000).  I was having terrible self-image and body issues when I was in school (and am still struggling with now) and this book is simply amazing.  I totally recommend this to everyone whether you're a teen or a young adult (heck, or a full blown adult).  It's divided into 3 main sections addressing mental preparation/positive mindsets and motivation, food and working out.  It helped me a whole lot during that time and it's a book I need to get back to now to remind me about feeling good about myself.  This is definitely one of the best books I've read so far.
