Book of the week! “The Honest Life” by Jessica Alba


So every week I will be bringing y’all (FYI I’m from Texas so you will be seeing ‘y’all’ sprinkled throughout my blog) a book of the week . I am an avid obsessive reader; I do have over 250 books in my ipad and I’ve tried to instill the same love of books into my children. My daughter loves to read and she has a good book collection on her iPod my son however…..he’d rather play with his trucks and trains than read.  Anywho….the book of the week I will just randomly choose on all kinds of varying topics and genres. This weeks book is “The Honest Life” by Jessica Alba I know I know a celebrity book!? no not even. This book is in my opinion an exploration as a mother to have a more natural ‘honest’ approach to things such as cooking, cleaning, and taking care of the children. Here’s a description of the book from the website The Honest Company (

As a new mom, Jessica Alba wanted to create the safest, healthiest environment for her family. But she was frustrated by the lack of trustworthy information on how to live healthier and cleaner—delivered in a way that a busy mom could act on without going to extremes. In 2012, with serial entrepreneur Brian Lee, seasoned consumer internet executive Sean Kane, and environmental advocate Christopher Gavigan, she launched The Honest Company, a brand where parents can find reliable information and products that are safe, stylish, and affordable. The Honest Life shares the insights and strategies she gathered along the way.

The Honest Life recounts Alba’s personal journey of discovery and reveals her tips for making healthy living fun, real, and stylish, while offering a candid look inside her home and daily life. She shares strategies for maintaining a clean diet (with favorite family-friendly recipes) and embraces nontoxic choices at home and provides eco-friendly decor tips to fit any budget. Alba also discusses cultivating a daily eco beauty routine, finding one’s personal style without resorting to yoga pants, and engaging in fun, hands-on activities with kids. Her solutions are easy, chic, and down-to-earth: they’re honest. And discovering everyday ways to live naturally and authentically—true to you—could be honestly life-changing.

so once I finish reading this I will be posting my own review of the book and any other book recommendations.

Hope y’all enjoy the book of the week!
