Brunette Ambition - Book Review & Giveaway


Disclaimer: Although I received this book free of charge from Blogging for Books, I was not obligated to write a positive review. All options expressed are my own.



Early last week, Blogging for Books sent me Lea Michele's new book Brunette Ambition to do a review! I have been looking forward to reading this book, since I'm a big fan of Lea! I was so excited to dive right into it! 



If you don't already know, Lea Michele is currently the star of the hit show Glee and also just released Louder, her debut solo album. In addition, she wrote a lifestyle book called Brunette Ambition which was released in May of 2014.

In short, this is a book dedicated to showing off Lea's beauty, diet, fitness and lifestyle tips & tricks. She begins with sharing a bit of her childhood and how she got into the business that she is in. She highlights each major role that she has had along the way and shares many personal photos for everyone to enjoy. She makes it very clear that she has worked extremely hard to get to where she is today.

In later chapters, she shares some of her beauty tips, including recipes for natural face masks and hair treatments, which she uses herself. One thing that I loved about the book and what Lea shared was that she really emphasized on taking some time to yourself whenever possible whether it be taking a relaxing bubble bath and binge watching crappy TV, just to take some time for you.

Lea makes it very clear that she knows that she is privileged to live the life that she does as far as having personal trainers and a traveling hair and makeup team at her beck and call, however she also makes everything so relatable with her suggestions and tips.

This girl also has QUITE the sense of humor! She talks about some of her favorite moments she's had and tells her audience that when she was given the opportunity to perform at the White House, she used the restroom and stole White House toilet paper!

This book is an easy read (it only took me 2 hours!) and if you like any sort of 'girly self-help' books, you will LOVE this one! And if you are anything like me, you will read the whole book and then re-read it again to take notes on all of your favorite tips and tricks! ;)



Blogging for Books was nice enough to send me an extra copy of Brunette Ambition to give away to one of you!
