Review

“One stop shopping! Maria shows us girls how to successfully juggle it all while looking fabulous. I love her lazy woman workout and yummy recipes!” (Kim Kardashian)

“Although she¹s a beautiful woman, Maria is that rare individual who has learned how to retain her childlike enthusiasm for life and it shows in everything she does, especially this book. She is contagious in the most wonderful way. Can you tell I adore her?” (Kathie Lee Gifford)

“Maria always has great advice and solutions! Whether it’s getting ready for the red carpet or organizing your life, Maria always does it better, faster, and cheaper.” (Tori Spelling)

“She is a beautiful, hard working lady who has a will and way to make things work for herself! She has some great tips that are easy to apply and help make your life better” (Heidi Klum)

“Why didn’t someone give me Maria’s book a few years ago??? I have wasted so much of my life looking for my other shoe! Maria is organized, down to earth, and sweet to boot. What a trifecta (and a great read)!” (Hoda Kotb)

From the Back Cover

Raised by working-class immigrant parents and later exposed to Hollywood's most elite experts in every field, Access Hollywood's, Today's, and Nightly News's reporter Maria Menounos reveals her EveryGirl secrets on everything: her systems to organize life, manage time, and ascend the ladder of success; her lazy woman's workout; her weight-loss tips (how she lost forty pounds and kept it off); and her guide to styling yourself like the stars—a self-proclaimed EveryGirl, Maria often does her own hair and makeup for celebrity events.

In The EveryGirl's Guide to Life, Maria shares personal experiences and photos from her life and professional journey as well as the various mantras, mottos, and philosophies she's adopted from the world's most impressive women. She gives advice on health, career, relationships, renovations, recreation, and more. From your carpet to the red carpet, Maria teaches the EveryGirl on a budget how to do it all, while living a healthier and happier life.

Format: Paperback
The EveryGirl's Guide to Life by Maria Menounos is an empowering book for women to read. It has great photographs and a lovely layout as well. Menounos has a nice, conversational voice and the book is a real pleasure to read.

The key to happiness, she learned from her friend, Randal Malone, is being organized. Your stuff, that is. So, she tells us how to organize, declutter and how to create a terrific closet that holds our things. Now, she advises, you can spend upwards to $15,000 on getting a closet designed for you...or you can learn how to do simple carpentry work and do it yourself. This is a perfect example of how Menounos's book is empowering...she encourages the reader to learn how to do home projects and not to rely on other (men, parents, etc). Excellent advice!

She is adamant about organizing...and, as an interior designer, I couldn't agree more. Have clutter, you will be disorganized, have less time, even be possibly depressed. Buy only stuff you need/love--avoid purchasing anything but.

The book discusses weight loss and how she managed to lose--and keep off-40 pounds. She also discusses managing time (easier when organized) and how to be successful in business.There is a section on style...and on emotional health. There are even some good looking recipes!

Because I refer to it often with my clients, I recommend HARMONIOUS ENVIRONMENT: BEAUTIFY, DETOXIFY & ENERGIZE YOUR LIFE, YOUR HOME & YOUR PLANET, as a companion to this book, as it goes into different aspects of organizing and making your home beautiful--which impacts the quality of your life.

Well done and highly recommend!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I first heard that Maria was writing this book, I was very curious. I've seen her for years on various news (and entertainment news) programs and have admired her seemingly strong work ethic and drive. I wanted to see how well she would be able to translate that into a book that everyone would be able to relate to. The end result is remarkable.

Since I'm a guy and can't comment on the nearly 70 pages of makeup and fashion, my review and rating are strictly on the 230 pages of everything else. And I mean EVERYTHING else. Maria tackles such topics as organization, health, exercise, relationships, do-it-yourself home improvement, business, and travel. The book had an immediate effect on me. I started reading it right around the time I was getting ready to put together my tax records for last year. Unfortunately, I couldn't locate all of the records I needed. The first chapter in the book is about organization and I realized that if I had Maria's organization I could have saved myself a lot of unnecessary stress. What she was writing about made sense and will help me as I try to organize my spare room where I currently just "store" (ie haphazardly throw) paperwork, boxes, clothing, etc. My favorite chapter, however, was the one on Friends & Family. As someone who had to cut ties with various "friends" recently and have seen a few others drift in and out of my life, I could really relate to a lot of what she was talking about.

The key to getting the most out of this book is to keep an open mind. You might not agree with everything she writes about but I felt that even when I didn't completely agree it made me examine how I approach something and if there are any ways that I can make it better. That is the end goal, to continually improve yourself and your foundation.

This book isn't just for those in their 20's and 30's. I'm 54 years old and Maria has tips and advice that apply
to everyone of any age. Maria is a smart young woman. Her book is packed with information, everything from finances, health, beauty, success, self-confidence, business, aging, etc...Something for everyone. A great gift for young people but also a great gift for those starting over with their lives or anyone who wants to improve themselves. The best common sense book for 2011 and beyond!

I really love the book. The book is WORTH buying. Beautiful, glossy photos. Details. Lots of great ideas. Any woman who wants to live fabulously, but keep her sanity should have this book.

The problem is that her advice seems to imply you have the money to spend. This is not a book for women who are just starting out. However, it does give you some aspiration and some ideas to "act as if" you are at Maria Menounos's status. An example is how she talks about taking care of different places in your home. Hmm, a girl just starting out probably has just an apartment. She then pushes it further to detail what to do with your GAME ROOM. Yah, definitely don't have one of those.

If you want a SERIOUS book to help you get started in life, this is not the book, but it is a nice buy. If you believe in visualization or looking at things you aspire to have, I recommend this book. The advice in it is still useful, as well if you ignore things that require money in the first place.

Format: Paperback
I was so disappointed in this book. The title "EVERYgirl's..." is deceiving. I totally agree with the reviewer who said it felt like Maria was bragging - the whole book is nothing but self advertisement. The photos are so posed, and every other page is a glossy photo of Maria posing with her make-up, posing with a vacuum - right before speaking at length about her maid and cleaning service; posing going into a CVS - as if to say, 'Hey, I'm just like you!' (Um, not so much, Maria!) Her tone often comes across as condescending if you are in a lower to middle socio-economic status. She focuses intently on "looks" - having the "right" look - insisting that what type of car you drive exemplifies who you are as a person. She makes a point to tell you which brands of things you should have - but if you "can't afford it"...ARGH! Her tone is incredibly flippant when speaking about those that "can't afford it." Is she serious??? In this economy, your EVERYgirl cannot live like this!! If you can't afford pedicures, you're feet are "gross" according to Maria...but you "can totally afford pedicures" if you do your own manis. GAH.

Be prepared to read "I, I, I, I" over and over. The book is basically a step-by-step guide of how to be Maria...and honestly, if she is anything like the tone in the book, NO THANKS. At the opening of each section, she attempts to relate to "us normal folk" only to have her own photos call her out on it. In the category of shoes, Maria says she "is a shoe gal, [but] doesn't wear a lot of heels...cut to the photo on the left of row after row after row of her massive shoe collection that is 99% heels. She certainly likes to name drop - Coach, Chloe, etc. She has Chloe shoes that are from two seasons ago (OMG! TWO seasons!!!) Her attempts to relate to the EVERYgirl are ridiculous!

Maria's book is a self-indulgent, "look at me!" Save your money for a more practical motivational book.
