The DivaGirl’s Guide to Style and Self-Respect is a book that is long overdue!
When I look in the dictionary, I know that the meaning of a diva is a lead female singer, so when I think of a diva, I think of great women like Leotyne Price and Marian Anderson. These are great women and strong women that are worthy of their many accolades… They earned it.
Recently, we know divas to be women like Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey because they are known as women that are not only singers but they are very demanding of their needs of comfort before they step on stage. It is said that Jennifer Lopez is known to ask for her own trailer that is completely white and that she must have a new toilet seat in her bathroom!
Further meaning of a Diva is a woman that is filled with confidence and is very demanding and can be very feisty and downright nasty if she doesn’t get what she wants. These are the women that the media loves to hate. Naomi Campbell is the queen of the new “Diva” as she is known to be very hostile and violent with her assistants and those that she believes are standing in her way. Let us not forget the infamous rapper, Foxxy Brown who is known to be the same thing.
The latest definition of a diva comes from none other than Beyonce who says that, “a diva is the female version of a hustler.” And while most may agree with all of the many definitions, after reading The DivaGirl’s Guide to Style and Self-Respect, you will love the newest meaning of the word.
Cheryl Ann Wadlington wants young women to help her in defining the new DivaGirl as a young woman that gets what she wants from her can-do attitude and the hard and good work that she puts into making it happen. She also says that a DivaGirl is someone that values her reputation. It is always important that you keep your reputation pristine because you never know who you are going to meet and what they will learn about you. Cheryl Ann also states that a DivaGirl is admired and admiration comes from what you do that most people can appreciate.
The DivaGirl’s Guide to Style and Self-Respect gives you a brief inside look into the life of the well-known fashion consultant, Cheryl Ann Wadlington and what she learned as a teen. She had many experiences in the fashion world to help shape her into the woman that she is today, but there was no education like the one that she got from her parents and her family. As the youngest child, she was spoiled but she was also disciplined, which led to a divalicious life. And that is what the DivaGirl’s Guide is all about.
The DivaGirl’s Guide to Style and Self-Respect gives great tips for young women to follow throughout life that will help her become the great woman that she is expected to be! Some of the best chapters of the book are:
Rock Ya Body!- This chapter speak about the importance of good health. Every girl, especially a DivaGirl, should be exercising. She explains that when young women exercise and eat healthy, the long term benefits show as we get older. She also talks about why we as young women should not even bother with crash diets that could lead to anorexia and bulimia.
Act Like You Know- In this chapter, Cheryl Ann discusses how young women should conduct themselves. From etiquette to good home-training; from good table manners to how to conduct yourself at an event, this all the information that a young woman needs in order to feel fearless in fabulous when out and about.
Style Star- Now this chapter is a chapter after every stylists heart! It is all about your body type; to know what type of clothing you are wearing; and where certain clothing is appropriate and not so much! She even touched on my favorite topic, THE PROM!!! Yes, the prom is definitely a date in which you want to look your very best and no one knows that better than this fashion consultant! (Oh! And definitely me! www.yhcpromcountdown.onsugar.com)
