Great advice!!

I like that Pretty good advice is so easy to read. Leslie wrote it in such way that you will hear her voice as you read it.    I love how she is funny and most of all how she is so personal, as you read the book you will feel like you really know her.    One of the advices that resonated with me is the one to always pay attention since there may be a miracle hiding in plain sight.    I like how she describes beauty and how she just created a community and was an active part of it.   This book will be helpful to anyone looking to know something new or maybe not so new, and it will help you see how we are all beautiful and lucky and it all depends on how we choose to deal with the opportunities.

Fun, Quick Read

I am a long time user of Bare Minerals makeup, so this book was an interesting look into the life of Leslie Blodgett. I enjoyed all of the little stories; it's like sitting down and having a conversation with a good friend. Even though I didn't always completely agree with the advice, there really was a lot of pretty good advice.
