The Goddess Guide - Gisele Scanlon

Tuesday, 7 November 2006


If you want to know how to look gorgeous, run a hassle free home, get into the best nightspots and travel to the top locations, we may have all the answers from one single book.

The Goddess Guide is the essential guide for all females who want to know what's hot and what's not with everything from fashion to food, designers to dentistry.

As we are all so busy day to day, this book aims to be a one-stop guide to style, beauty, travel and the best places in some of the hottest cities such as New York, London and Paris.

Gisele Scanlon is a writer and illustrator. Her first foray into journalism was when she blagged an interview with Eddie Izzard who she saw as representing the best cross-dresser she had ever seen.

She once hid in a toilet for 2 hours at London fashion week just so she could sneak out when she heard the music that heralded the start of the Alexander McQueen show.  This was how she got to cover his collection for Irish Tatler. She has also worked with some of the biggest names in the fashion industry such as Phillip Tracey and Laura Mercier.

The Goddess Guide also has info on putting up a tent, taking the best photo, how to safely store food in your fridge and she even suggests having a wallpaper party with your friends - 'tea, cake and wallpapers, what could be more fun'.

Book is available nationwide and is priced at about €20.
