Firstly - draw out the compound you're starting with and work out what needs to be changed in order to get to the desired product.
Then think about how you would go about doing it

I'd use superglue to attach the phenyl group.

Specifically an acid catalysed aldol condensation. Then something like sodium borohydride to reduce the aldehyde.
