There's a section about how to blowdry your hair, which is far too basic of a concept. There's also an area on painting your fingernails, as if you didn't already know how to do that. I believe that Ms. Schuman has run out of new and relevant ideas. During the last six months her blog has been painful. Cupcakes and Cashmere, the book, feels the same way.
I don't think that I'd recommend this book to a friend. Sorry.

I must disagree with reviews claiming that there is much repetition between the book and the blog. Of course the subject matter and maybe a few photographs are the same, but for the most part, the book really extends beyond her website and offers a more in-depth look into her topics. The articles are well written and I especially love the Halloween portion and also the wardrobe essentials for each season. The recipes are simple yet tasty, which I find appealing because nothing is worse than overly-fussy cooking.
I love the layout of the book, which is divided into seasons, and the size is perfect! It fits nicely on top of my other coffee table books. I can't wait to buy a few copies for Christmas gifts!
Beautiful job, Emily! I can't wait for the next one!
