We are bombarded in the media with images of beautiful women with flawless complexions, perfect bodies and impeccable grooming. But how are the rest of us - those who are less physically advantaged, cash-strapped, and juggling the demands of work and family life - supposed to compete? Well, on our own terms and by making the most of our natural assets - including the curves - and adapting our routines to fit our purse and our lifestyle. Here GMTV star Lorraine Kelly shows in her trademark down-to-earth manner that you don't have to be a supermodel to look gorgeous, though you may well have to make some changes; it's all about attitude, eating healthily, doing enough exercise and enhancing your body shape by toning and slimming down (or even putting on a few pounds) if necessary. In this book Lorraine shares her own health, hair and beauty secrets and provides an effective plan for getting into shape and defying age.
