Working in public relations, I have the luxury of working with celebrities from time to time. Last May, I worked at an event where Maria Menounous, from Access Hollywood, was the spokesperson.

While I just facilitated interviews between Maria and members of the Chicago media, I must say her upbeat personality shined through – and it wasn’t in a fake way! It’s easy to see why she is a likeable television personality.

Maria recently came out with a cute book called “The EveryGirl’s Guide To Life” that is a great idea for a high school or college graduation gift.

Here’s the book description from Harper Collins:

Raised by working-class immigrant parents and later exposed to Hollywood's most elite experts in every field, Access Hollywood's, Today's, and Nightly News's reporter Maria Menounos reveals her EveryGirl secrets on everything: her systems to organize life, manage time, and ascend the ladder of success; her lazy woman's workout; her weight-loss tips (how she lost forty pounds and kept it off); and her guide to styling yourself like the stars—a self-proclaimed EveryGirl, Maria often does her own hair and makeup for celebrity events.

In The EveryGirl's Guide to Life, Maria shares personal experiences and photos from her life and professional journey as well as the various mantras, mottos, and philosophies she's adopted from the world's most impressive women. She gives advice on health, career, relationships, renovations, recreation, and more. From your carpet to the red carpet, Maria teaches the EveryGirl on a budget how to do it all, while living a healthier and happier life.
