A Down-to-earth Manual on Style, Health and God--"Staying Stylish: Cultivating a Confident Look, Style and Attitude" by Candace Cameron Bure Review

I have many good memories of watching "Full House" with my brother growing up.  If you didn't know, the author of this book, Candace Cameron Bure, starred as DJ Tanner in "Full House."  I was even more thrilled to find out Ms. Bure is a Christian and pretty outspoken about her faith.  We need more of that, especially in Hollywood.

"Staying Stylish: Cultivating a Confident Look, Style and Attitude" by Candace Cameron Bure is a non-fiction book written as a type of manual.  The main topics it covers are style/fashion, health and faith.  The book itself is a beautiful hardback book with a ribbon bookmark to mark your place.  I really love all of the pictures to illustrate the different things covered in the book.

Ms. Bure writes in a down-to-earth manner.  Her tips and tricks are very practical and ones a normal person can implement.  I found myself recently consulting the book on the best way to wear a skirt.  What I love most is that Ms. Bure doesn't just talk about beauty and style, but also how important it is to take care of oneself physically, mentally and spiritually.  She talks about prayer, journaling and having a quiet time.  Lastly, she stresses that you should be true to yourself!

Content: This is a clean read.  The only problem I can see one having is that people have different convictions on modesty and some Christians may not be comfortable with some of her outfits. 

Rating: I give this book 5 stars!

Genre: Christian; Non-fiction
