Jen Lancaster hates to burst your happy little bubble, but life in the big city isn't all it's cracked up to be. Contrary to what you see on TV and in the movies, most urbanites aren't party-hopping in slinky dresses and strappy stilettos. But lucky for us, Lancaster knows how to make the life of the lower crust mercilessly funny and infinitely entertaining.

This book is so true and so genuine and so FUNNY! I was literally laughing out loud and nodding my head while I was reading this. Jen Lancaster can take the ordinary in our lives and make it screamingly funny. Loved every word.

AudiobooksNow review by Stephanie on 2012-11-07 22:38:34

This book was awful and a huge waste of time. The whole time, I couldnt help but think she was trying to emulate Plum Skyes Bergdorf Blondes which she spends practically an entire chapter talking about. This book is not written well, shes surly and quite honestly annoying, and does nothing but complain about her unfortunate position when all she does is bug her husband who is trying to be productive while she feels sorry for herself and whines like a child. Seriously, dont waste your time.
