Product description

"Life's Too F***ing Short" is an indispensable guide for women to surviving in the 21st century, which enables you to have a fulfilling and successful life without spending a fortune or passing a load of exams. It will show you how to combine work, relationships, friends, fashion, health, shopping, cooking etc without using up valuable time you could spend enjoying yourself. Janet's mantra is to tell yourself every day 'I'm bloody brilliant'! She shows how you can do everything from building a successful career and looking good, to meeting and keeping friends without making unnecessary effort or setting yourself unrealistic goals.Once you've read this book, you'll realise there are plenty of things you can kiss goodbye to for ever. Life's too short to: start a complicated diet - talk to a friend who bores the arse off you - take the pips out of grapes and papayas - stay in the same dreary job for years - concoct a face pack - sew curtains - do the ironing - drive miles to buy hand made pasta - believe that Joan Collins just uses great face cream or think that you'll ever look like a picture in a fashion magazine if you buy that GBP500 dress. The list is endless, and this book will just get you started. It's a new philosophy - that to succeed in life and be happy you must put yourself first at all times.
