Book Review #1:Rachel Hollis

Hey hey guys, I am doing something a little bit different these coming months where I am going to introduce you to my world of reading. Now, I will admit, I have not read a book all the way through since 50 Shades of Grey Part 1 came out but I have always wanted to read interesting works by other writers. The book I am going to review this month is a book written by a great women who loves to help other women get out of their way and see what the potential that they already have. Growing from tragedy and being able to be successful in life with some bumps along the way is real-life for her and she wants you to know-ITs Normal! Introducing a lady I highly respect for her courage and empowerment of other: Rachel Hollis

I read this book from cover to cover and was amazed at the similiarities we have. I thought I was the only one thinking and going through it. For those of you who do not know who Rachel Hollis is, she is a Mom of 3 boys and a 1 girl, wife to Dave Hollis and founder of a lifestyle website TheChicSite.com and Ceo of her own Media company. She has alot of followers online via instagram, facebook, youtube etc. She is a woman who likes to tell it like it is, she encourages, enlightens and works to help others acheive the same sense of confidence she exudes throughout everything she does with the help of God.

I am going to review this book in 4 parts:

  • Why did I pick this book to read?
  • What part of the book, really hit home for me: (ex. made me cry or have a aha moment)?
  • What is one thing I took away from the book that I will change in my life?
  • How would I rate this book out of 5 stars?

Rachel Hollis: Girl, Wash Your Face

  • I picked this book because it came highly recommended online. I was curious as to what washing my face meant so I said this might be a great book just by the title, so I bought it. I never realized when I opened it, I would never be able to put it down. It spoke to me so well. Everything, well almost everything, was so similiar to my life I couldn’t believe that this nice young lady had gone through all that and still managed to be a great women waking up everyday helping people with her wisdom and lending a helping hand.
  • A part in the book that really hit home for me was Chapter 15: I Will Never Get Past This- when she talked about her family. Not being as close as she wanted to be after the tragedy just trying to salvage what was left of her relationships and picking up the peices and moving forward in church and counseling, which is always the best medicine. I cried through the whole chapter.
  • One thing she stressed so much in her book about is being happy with who you are. It doesnt matter what you didnt accomplish or who hurt you in your past, you are responsible for your own happiness. Never let others believe you are never good enough to try new things or pick up where you left off with years ago. Always try to be you and be happy for you not anyone else. I realized that in trying to make others happy all at once, I have made myself unhappy. I have decided to run away from toxic or negative things and let others be unhappy by themselves and take care of me first. Be there after I am taken care of then console others.
  • 5- star rating from me for original content, very personable and uplifting!

Looking forward to reading her other book:

A New Look!!

Ok, so, I am a women in my 40s and I am looking for a style and color for my hair. Well, guess what, what better way to say “Look at me” then to go drastic right…lol.

This is what I did…..I went from extensions…

To this…..short bob cut

I even tried to go back to what was easiest which was this….

But I needed more…so I ditched the braids and decided color was the right move….it didnt turn out too well, I lost some hair due to human error of my stylest.

As you can see my hair was red instead of the brown it was supposed to be…so I had to get it redone in the weeks to come. At that point, I believed that what I was looking at in the mirror wasnt going to get any better unless I start to truly appreciate my beauty with hair included so….I did this

I started over from scratch and never felt better. Check out my post in “My Story” titled The Cover Comes Off….No More Filters (tap link above) It explains the decision I made to cut it off.

Being that creative person I am, I came up with ways to make this hairstyle work. So, I grew it out and up and now it is a very popular do amongst African-American women….

Some of my favorite cuts:

Now your probably wondering….what did I do next? Well, me being creative I wanted to try color so I experimented with these products to get a tone close to my skin. These are the products I attempted to use and there was no change….

One was supposed to lighten my hair but all it did was make my grey hair worse and cause me to sweat alot from sitting in the sun. The other didnt change my hair at all and it was gross to put on.

Gave up hope until I saw this lady on You-tube who goes natural like I do and I loved how her hair color was and I was amazed..check her out below and subscribe

So in this video she is using Dark and Lovely golden blonde hair dye. I decided I would give it a try and after washing it with Kinky Curly clean shampoo, which is done 24 hours ahead of time to wash out grime, loosen knots and previous products. I did this to give my hair a fresh start but it is not neccesary to color. I picked a honey blonde….

30 minutes later and 15 minutes of rinsing…tada

So it all worked out and I love my new color. It is so vibrant and makes me feel young๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Tell me what you think and thank you for reading.
