While Beanland and Terry do care about having a nice home, throwing fantastic parties and whipping up fabulous dinners, they have better things to do than polish the silver. The coauthors of Its a Chick Thing: Celebrating the Wild Side of Womens Friendships throw Martha Stewart-esque caution to the wind in this lifestyle guide with attitude, irreverently addressing the "four pillars of nesting": decorating, entertaining, cooking and gardening. In each section, they give a basic overview of how to approach the task at hand, and then delve into the nitty-gritty, with sidebars, lists, pull-out quotes from celebrities and quirky clip art, all with a can-do, girl power mind-set, evident in the inclusion of such lines as "I am a marvelous housekeeper. Every time I leave a man, I keep his house" (from Zsa Zsa Gabor). Among other tidbits, readers will find cocktail recipes, flea market shopping tips, party invitation ideas, suggestions for creating a garden that suits their personality and reasons to give Martha some credit ("the chick can carve a pumpkin 200 ways and make 65 recipes from the seeds alone!").
