A Book Report: Jessica Alba's The Honest Life

I am in an affiliate program with the Honest Company. I purchased this book myself. My opinion is completely honest no matter how I receive any items mentioned on this blog. 

When I knew that Jessica Alba was coming out with a book about her lifestyle, I was a bit hesitant.  Some celebs write books about their lifestyles and I find them to be a bit far fetched for the rest of us.  I decided to give the book a chance and looked it over in Barnes & Noble.  I read the story of why she opted to go for a more natural sustainable lifestyle while sitting in the cafe and felt I could totally relate.  Jessica Alba is like me...aside from the kids, how hot and famous she is and the red carpet stuff anyway LOL I ordered my own copy.

I carried the book around with me for a while, reading sections when I had time.  This book is great. The way it is broken down is wonderful.  You can read the whole thing, read just a section for what you want to know about &/or use it as a reference about certain things and go back to it.  For me, the food section was most informative.  She explains things well and in terms you understand.  I am a picky eater trying to learn about new foods, what they are like and how to cook them and she describes this all really well which works for me.  Picky eaters need info about what to expect.

The book is beautiful, which always sells me.  I love the pictures and design.  I love the layout.  I am an artist and librarian, I just can't help myself.  Then the content is great.  It is broken down into sections.  You get a section on honest food, honest cleaning, honest beauty, honest style, honest home, honest baby and honest inspiration.  She writes in a relatable way, gives good accurate info and she DOES NOT guilt trip you into her lifestyle.  I get very turned off by books by people who act like it is their way or the highway with an all or nothing attitutde. This is NOT a book like that.  This book makes me ask, why am I not friends with Jessica Alba?  She is very down to earth from the sounds of things.  She loves family and friends, she loves to cook and decorate, she just seems so real and I love that.

You can find the book at her company's website (listed under Bath & Body) or at another retailer.  If you use the link here, they will know I sent you there.  If you want more info, check out the video below. is your trusted source for non-toxic, high-performing, eco-friendly, and stylish products for your family.

  1. This book is definitely on my reading list now, right after I finally get ahold of No More Dirty Looks.


I look forward to reading your comment! Sorry I had to set up moderation because I was getting a lot of spam.
