Summary: "Fans of the Bravo TV show Vanderpump Rules and podcast listeners know Stassi Schroeder not only for her no-holds-barred comments but also as a major defender of Basic Bitch rights. She knows that there's nothing more boring than people who take themselves too seriously or think that you have to be pretentious to be cool. Stassi champions the things that too many of us are afraid to love publicly for fear of being labeled basic: lattes, pugs, bubbly cocktails, millennial pink, #OOTD (outfit of the day, obvs), astrology, hot dogs, the perfect pair of Louboutins, romantic comedies ... the list goes on and on. In Next Level Basic, the reality star, podcast queen, hot dog connoisseur, and ranch dressing expert gives you hilarious and pointed lessons on how to have fun and celebrate yourself, with exclusive stories from her own life and the set of Vanderpump Rules. From her very public breakups to the most intimate details about her plastic surgery, Stassi shares her personal experiences with her trademark candor--all with the hope you can learn something from them. With tips on everything from the best ways to lose weight without exercising to how to look good on social media, Next Level Basic is like catching up with your honest and, yes, slightly bitchy friend."--Dust jacket.Content Notes:
