"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

GiGi Griswald decides that it is her life’s mission to help others improve the way they look. She sets up a fashion consultation firm and though her approach isn’t the norm, she just knows it will bring her success. People need her advice, they just don’t know it yet.
This book is not at all what I thought it would be. When I saw the title fashion didn’t even come to my mind. Obvioiusly I need GiGi’s help, hehe. This was fun and entertaining and a completely new take on the go after what you want philosophy. GiGi did not follow any of the normal ‘rules’ that others in society seem to. She was fun. She knew fashion, if only in her mind. And she genuinely wanted to help people. She may have went about it in a backwards way, but her heart was in a good place.
While GiGi is busy trying to get her business up and running, her friends introduce her to a possible love match. And just like with fashion, she takes love on with her own flare. It is going to take a special type of someone to be able to handle GiGi in their life.
The title suggests that GiGi’s mother has a huge role or influence in her life, but this is not the case. The mother is there in a small almost brushed aside role, not as dominant a part as you would think. This story is more about GiGi finding her way and herself through trial and error.
A wonderful light hearted read with a touch of comedy and romance along the same lines as such great reads like Bridget Jones’s Diary. I recommend this as a weekend escape read. Four stars.
The heroine of this chick-lit is incredible,I envy her strength and her perseverance.
Gigi doesn't let bad news take away her joy for fashion and the pleasure her advices bring to her clients.
The work of a fashion consultant in London is not easy but with a great work ethic and a bunch of good friends (old and new) you can survive every hardships and succeed.
I strongly recommend this story because I've enjoyed it a lot and being a business woman I could relate with our heroine struggles and satisfactions.
P.S. half point added for the american/italian chef whose name was not mangled xD
After working in jobs she hates and building up credit card debts buying mountains of clothes, GiGi realises that there is only one thing she loves enough to do as a career: fashion. When a wealthy family friend enlists her to sort her wardrobe out, GiGi’s reputation as a fashion consultant to rich women quickly rises and boom! Her business is born.
After moving to expensive London, especially with the threat of a huge department store opening across the road, the business is struggling, especially when GiGi loses the help of her best friend Ritchie. And when she meets a handsome, sexy chef, she has to decide which is more important: work or love?
GiGi is really a brilliant and quite unique character. Though she has run up debts in the past, she relys on herself and her talents to pull her out of trouble, which is really quite inspiring, especially in the face of her mother’s disapproval and a whole host of other obstacles. She’s loyal, hard-working but also fun and totally relatable. My one quibble would be that her romances didn’t quite sizzle in the same way that her love of clothes did!
Colette Kebell writes with confidence and a cheeky flair which will keep you smiling from first page to last.
