"For fans of The Happiness Project and The Year of Living Biblically comes a pointed look at our fascination with celebrities, as one woman strives to remake herself in the image of her favorite stars. What woman hasn't seen pictures of Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, or Beyonce and wished she had their clothes, their abs, their seemingly flawless lives? For Rachel Bertsche, these celebrities are the epitome of perfection--self-assured and effortlessly cool. Yet lately, between juggling her career, her marriage, and her dream of becoming a mother, Bertsche feels anything but put together. In Jennifer, Gwyneth & Me, Bertsche embarks on a quest to emulate her Hollywood role models--while sticking to a budget--to see if they really hold the keys to happiness. While trying to unlock the stars' secrets, from Sarah Jessica Parker's wardrobe to Julia Roberts's sense of calm to--maybe one day--Jessica Alba's chic pregnancy, Bertsche learns valuable lessons. A toned body doesn't come easy or cheap, avoiding social media can do wonders for your peace of mind, and confidence is the key to pulling off any outfit. But can she immerse herself in the A-list lifestyle and still stay true to herself? And will her pursuit of perfection really lead to happiness? Praise for Rachel Bertsche's MWF Seeking BFF "Written with verve, insight, and humor. Bertsche writes cleverly, but not glibly, about the challenges young women face today."--Chicago Tribune "[A] charming, funny chronicle."--People"-- Provided by publisher.

One woman's journey of finding happiness, contentment, better health, and herself by following the lifestyles of 9 different celebrities.  Real, funny, relatable and thought provoking.

Stumbled upon this little read gotta say I even blogged about it it's light fluffy and made me wish I had a husband who would indulge me in such madness (and being that I'm a 55 year old black male that's saying a lot) but if your into celeb culture then you can see the silly and serious sides of it but to me REAL women don't give a fig about these here today gone tomorrow starlets they're much too busy living their own lives and if you're going to take your cue from the female sex try these stories: Dreaming in French,Doll Face,Chanel Bonfire,An Intimate History of the Senses ,The Dragon Lady Madam Nhu or The Rules of Civility all in all though a good read Ms.B. and congrats on the kid.
