Be a Flamingo
By Sarah Ford
Flamingo is that one friend who always brightens a room as soon as he walks in. He is always the first on the dancefloor and the very last to stop boogying. He has never tried to dress like a Parisian, never followed advice on what not to wear, and certainly has never tried to tone down his natural pinkness; he knows he is perfect just the way he is. And even when life throws Flamingo a curveball, he is always ready to embrace the unknown and jump straight in.A gorgeous little gift book of motivational sayings and hilarious axioms, Be a Flamingo is a perfect pink pick-me-up gift for a friend who needs a confidence boost, or great as an impulse self-purchase when you feel you need to start tooting your own horn a little louder. Because we could all do worse than taking a leaf out of Flamingo's book.
