Ascending Butterfly Montly Book Club pick:

Our book club returns with a special title, 'Unforgettable You' by Daisy Fuentes! (Especially happy to be featuring Daisy during Hispanic Heritage month!)

Right under the title on the cover it reads:

'Master the Elements of Style, Spirituality, and True Beauty' - 'Become a Classic Girl in a Modern World.'

Not an easy task, but in a read that is part 'sneak peak' into Daisy's Diary, personal scrapbooks and photos, and very in depth questions and queries of herself and other celebrity friends along the way, she manages to offer what I'd call 'Life Sense' advice that tackles the cover challenge in 335 pages!

So how do you become a Classic Girl in a Modern World? What do you think makes a Woman Unforgettable?

She answers all the questions asked herself, and then poses them for you to answer as well. The chapter excercises are actually fun and exceptionally thought provoking. This was truly a fun and very surprising read!

Because this synopsis is absolutely dead on, I wanted to share it:

Revealing tips that she has learned from her life in and out of the spotlight and from other celebrities and experts, Daisy shows you how to perceive yourself honestly and accurately. Only then can you feel and look absolutely irresistible, with a head-turning walk and a million-dollar smile. Unforgettable You helps you to become the very best version of yourself. Daisy breaks her approach down to easy-to-follow areas on which to focus your improvements: inner reflection, etiquette, relationships, sex, spirituality, and beauty.

By the end of this book, you'll know Daisy better, but most importantly, you'll know yourself better and you will be armed with all the tools you need to be unforgettable—from the inside out.

Daisy is not afraid to tell it like it is in this book and one of my favorite quotes is "I believe you can be a "take no shit", strong, powerful, successful, Liberated Woman and still be a Lady". I whole heartedly agree!

The book is also peppered with her favorite quotes and a list of some of her favorite charity choices, and I discovered her #1 choice is one we both share, Saint Jude Children's Hospital! (#2 and #3 are ASPCA and Smile Train, respectively) - Daisy has also been the celebrity chairman for the annual St. Jude Angels & Stars Gala in Miami since it's Miami debut!

These are the things about celebs that interest me, not who they are dating, or where they shop, but the positive ways they wield their celebrity to do good. Not because of the PR it garners, but because the cause actually has a personal meaning to them. Somehow Ascending Butterfly has carved a niche for itself featuring brands and now stars with a conscience. Those that balance the bottom line with giving back in impactful ways, and I couldn't be happier to do so! I have often been asked if I have something against profit, trust me, I don't, I just think it's important to give back whenever we can.

I loved this book! I have already recommended it to quite a few people. I encourage you to 'experience' this book, don't just read it. There is nothing superficial about it. The excercises/challenges are thought provoking, if you are not afraid to challenge yourself, to question yourself, and reveal to yourself WHO you are, then this book is for you. But if you get this book, and don't actually participate in the challenges the only person you are doing a dis-service to is yourself. I learned quite a bit about myself via the excercises in this book. I am sure I will constantly learn more about myself, and journaling is a great way to do that, But the Proust Questionnaire which is included in this book was one of the most interesting self exploration excercises I've experienced since my favorite writing class in College! I missed that kind of challenge, both on a personal level and as a writer! Gracias Daisy!
