Secrets of the Southern Belle

How to Be Nice, Work Hard, Look Pretty, Have Fun, and Never Have an Off Moment

Who is always perfectly put together and never at a loss for words? Who is profes­sional, courteous, and harder working than any­one else? Whose Christmas cards arrive the day after Thanksgiving, year after year? Y’all know she’s got to be a Southern Belle.

A Southern Belle takes care of herself and makes sure people treat her right. She always gets her way, even if her man thinks it was his idea. (That’s a win for you both.) But, darling, you don’t have to be raised in the South to be the same fun-loving package of looks, charm, and determination that makes a Belle a Belle. That’s what this delightful little book is for!

Ladies, take it from Phaedra Parks, the smart, confident, and always poised star of The Real House­wives of Atlanta. Life as a Belle is simply better—for you and for the people around you. So let’s imag­ine you’re rocking on the front porch, with a tall glass of sweet tea and a plate of ladyfingers, because Phaedra’s got a thing or two to tell you!
