I have completed my very 1st e-book. Last month, the Problogger forum issued a challenge to create a Top 10 Gift List and the Third Tribe issued another challenge to create an e-book. I combined the two ideas and created an e-book about some of your favorite chick flick characters. The Chick Flick Girl’s Favorite Things contains a few shopping tips if you have to buy a gift for a friend who is a lot like Elle Woods or Bridget Jones.
I chose a few of the great chick flick characters, like Princess Buttercup in The Princess Bride, Julie & Julia, Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada, Summer Finn from (500) Days of Summer and others. You might also think of a few that I missed.
What does Legally Blond’s Elle Woods want? A pink laptop, shoes? ….Or what about Lisbeth Salander, the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo? She loves technology, maybe a MacBook Pro some Doc Martens and anything in black. Joan Hollaway-Harris and the ladies of Mad Men love Aquanet hairspray, Chanel no. 5 and in lieu of a girdle, they can wear Spanx. Sex in The City’s Carrie Bradshaw…well you know what she wants…SHOES!
The Chick Flick Girl’s Favorite Things Gift Guide was inspired by Oprah Winfrey’s fabulous Favorite Things shows. Since Oprah seems to have lost my invitation for the shows (and my trip to Australia to see Hugh Jackman), I decided to go for it and come up with a few ‘favorite things’ for some of our favorite chick flicks. I am still working on the Australia thing. Take look and let me know what you think. I hope you like it.
