"This is the smartest, funniest, most patient friend you can get in book form without that book actually being haunted." - Kristin Chirico, senior editor, BuzzFeed
Womanskills is packed with helpful techniques and tips for cooking, money matters, style, relationships, home improvement, and more. It can help you with advice for how to end a toxic friendship and finding a bra that actually fits. You can turn to it when you get the itch to DIY a new wine rack or chalkboard wall. Or you can flip through to answer those nagging questions like, you know, "why do my houseplants keep dying?"
While you'll find plenty of woman-to-woman information (fighting off cramps, cleaning your makeup brushes, and learning to say "no" to name a few), you'll also find skills to make you more of a badass, like learning how to grill a perfect steak, figuring out how to find a stud in the wall, understanding the stock market, and knowing how to snake a drain. Whether you're headed to a birthday party and need to wrap that odd-shaped present in a hurry or you need a download on whiskey before book club, Womanskills has you covered.
