HGTV Host, Author Joan Steffend Tells You How To 'Sparkle'

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — As a TV host, Joan Steffend is known for "Decorating Cents," making things pretty on the cheap.

In her  book, "...and she sparkled," Steffend has learned about finding the beauty from within. She tells the timeless story of self-discovery and acceptance and getting to the place where you understand you didn't need any spit or polish -- that you were already magnificent.

Steffend shared some of her wisdom as an in-studio guest on the KCAL 9 News at 2 p.m. Thursday.

Steffend's book tells you to stay true to yourself and follow your dreams and passions. She also says the book is good for men or women and some people she has met have told her they've bought multiple copies as help spread her message.

Simply put, Steffend says to find the child within and "dance...whatever our age."

You can find the book on, or

She will also have a book signing later today in Costa Mesa at Fleur de Lys. (5-8p.m.)
