New York: Sales of Pippa Middleton's book 'Celebrate' have been flat, following a barrage of scathing reviews and the creation of @pippatips, a popular Twitter account that highlights the so-called "basic" advice she gives in the party-planning book.
Naturally, the Duchess of Cambridge's sister decided that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
She has written a diary for The Spectator, a weekly British magazine, to address her critics head on, the Huffington Post reported.
It was only a month ago that Pippa penned an essay for The Telegraph, assuring the world that she's a "real foodie" and that the book's contents were intentionally simplistic and "not too fussy."
Now, after Celebrate has prematurely hit the bargain bins, the 29-year-old tries a more cheeky attempt to get the public on board with her book, offering up her own @pippatips for office Christmas parties.
Her suggestions include choosing, if you can, a Christmas-themed menu. A turkey, for example, can be perfect for large gatherings, not inviting any members of staff, as this can cause offence, and keeping speeches brief and cheerful as Christmas is not a time to talk about redundancies.
In the diary, she even references her arguably most popular asset: her bum.
"Maybe I should write a sequel and call it Bottoms Up," she writes. "Now that could be a bestseller."
