Based on the popular QuickieChick website, lifestyle expert Laurel House's new book QuickieChick's Cheat Sheet to Life, Love, Food, Fitness, Fashion, and Finance on a Less Than Fabulous Budget (St. Martin's Griffin/May 2012) offers quick tips for smart, sassy, independent chicks. This is the essential manual on life's lessons delivered in fun, snappy, and instantly-gratifying bites of information.
