Princess Charm School by Ruth HombergIts exactly what you would expect from the title and cover (in this case judge a book by the cover). Popular pretty girls (drawn dangerously thin and all the same shape) go to charm school where the pink and extremely short uniform flares our perfectly and has variations such as the strapless pink dancing uniform (is this making fun of little girls by any chance?).
There is a mean girl and her even meaner mother. There is a prince who though peripheral notices the protagonist (who is beautiful and good and popular but in no way exceptional). In a consumerist twist the popular girls use their mobile phones to help them break out when they are wrongfully detained (and singlign with their beautiful voices because this is about hyperfemininity).
There are pink sprites whose main function seems to be looking cute, but who do paint the nails of all the pampered charm school (ffs) beauties. I mean even I could make my nail polish look good if a magical sprite painted it for me!!
The main thrust of the story is to identify who is the real princess which is entirely predictable and vomitous. This seems to be adapted from a vapid movie that no sensible parent would let their daughter near. Seems there are lots of different book adaptations of this empty nonsense.
Not recommended, especially for impressionable children.
Do women like men in uniform???
Why Do Women Like Men In Uniform?
A woman with a thing for men in uniform asks the experts to weigh in on her obsession. It's the sight of a police officer with a glistening badge on his chest and handcuffs dangling from his hip. Firemen wearing heavy black bunker gear in big red trucks—even recent footage of Navy Seal Team 6 propelling from helicopters in Pakistan has an effect. When asked why these men are enticing, some quip it's the clothes who wouldn't want a modern-day Superman? Ever since my late teens, when infidelity led to the demise of my parents' marriage, I began gravitating toward these uniformed men, dating firemen, police officers, a Marine and a war veteran along the way before eventually marrying a now-retired serviceman. My addiction to this breed, I concluded, was because valor and respect were both visible the uniform and invisible their yearning to achieve excellence through commitment. According to Psychologist and Relationship Expert, Dr.
By Hannah Betts. All the nice girls love a sailor, as the old ditty taught us. And for sailor, also read soldier and airman — or frankly any chap in a uniform exhibiting a spot of derring-do. For a study by the University of Southampton, published in the journal Evolution and Human Behaviour , has found that women are more likely to find war veterans attractive when presented with hypothetical male profiles representing heroism across different scenarios. Those who boasted humanitarian endeavours were not rated as highly, nor mere jocks.
According to a new study by the University of Southampton, there's a scientific reason why women are attracted to men in uniform!.

2. Be flexible.
My friend and I are always bonding over our love for guys in plaid shirts. Maybe it alludes to a down-to-earth persona, or an overall feeling of coziness? I casually asked my friend for her opinions, and she said that women probably look for a hardworking and brave man. In the case of those who fight wars, they often have to dress in camouflage. When women think of servicemen they think that their character is heroic and strong. An article in The Times of India suggests that uniforms relay a sense of comfort and security, along with the notion that men dressed in this attire exhibit chivalry. Men in service all have reasons to be coveted.
You know how men in uniform are more attractive than men who aren't in uniform? Well, I don't know the exact science behind it, but I'm pretty sure it's a fact. Until today, I'd never thought about it too much. I'd just accepted that it was universally known fact that women are attracted to men in uniform. Maybe I should blame my attraction to uniforms on the fact that my older brother went to Naval Academy and somehow became best friends with five of the hottest men on planet Earth. Or maybe it's because the uniform levels the playing field between the men who understand fashion and the men who don't.
According to a new study by the University of Southampton , women being attracted to men in uniform has evolutionary origins. They studied a sample of World War Two veterans and found that heroes of the conflict produced more offspring than regular veterans, suggesting a link between heroism and mating success. In another part of the study, women were presented with hypothetical profiles of the opposite sex, representing varying levels of heroism in different contexts: warfare, sport and business. They were then asked questions to determine how attracted they were to the different profiles. Women were more likely to find a soldier attractive, and were more inclined to date him, if he had been awarded a medal for bravery in combat. Displays of heroism in fields such as sport or business had no effect on how likely women were to find those men attractive.
