So it's timely that I appear to be reading my first ever self-help book. If You Have to Cry Go Outside is written by Kelly Cutrone, fashion publicist power bitch. Her PR company People's Revolution runs fashion shows, which she oversees in a very-cool-but-with-a-heart power bitch kind of way.
It's actually really refreshing to read a completely kick-arse woman's journey, especially relating to such a fickle field as fashion. I've not finished it yet – she's just given birth as a single mum and appears to be rocking at it, having the cash and wherewithal to hire help instead of worrying about having a man around – but it's seriously brightening up my day. Here she is, on 'urban single power-girl pregnancy.'
'I could not wear maternity clothes. Ugh, yuck, no way, no thanks, never! Pea in the Pod made me want to kill myself. What were these fabrics? Floral prints? I was sure I'd rather clean toilets than be seen in them.'
Right, who else's inspiring story can I read until this dreary month passes?
