"Every time a Nice Girl shows me a Facebook photo of the woman
who got the guy, the new job or the promotion, it is invariably of
a Naughty Girl who looks sexy and pulled together. The Naughty Girl
has the know-how and self-confidence to turn heads and use her
appeal to captivate and capture what and whom she wants.
I have always loved Nice Girls. I was tired of seeing them
overlooked again and again both in the workplace and by men in
social situations because they lack the instincts of their Naughty
Girl sisters. And since I have devoted my career to showing women
of every age and shape how to repackage themselves, I decided to do
something about it!
NAUGHTY MAKEOVERS FOR NICE GIRLS is loaded with makeup and fashion
advice to empower a Nice Girl to transform herself into a spicy but
classy woman in every situation. So, go ahead and channel your
inner naughty. Instead of fading into the background, become a star
in your own life."
