July Favorites and Brunette Ambition Giveaway

It’s time for some July Favorites! This month I’m talking about unbirthdays, Secret Santa, and my favorite books and beauty.




Brunette Ambition

Lea Michele is one of the hardest working performers in show business. Whether she’s starring as Rachel Berry on Glee, rocking a glamorous look on the red carpet, recording her solo album, or acting as the spokesperson for L’Oreal, Lea is the ultimate multi-tasker. She knows better than anyone that it is difficult to be your best self and keep things in perspective when your to-do list is overflowing and you are faced with challenges, so she’s developed a foolproof system for remaining healthy and centered.

Lea Michele’s Brunette Ambition is a fun, behind the scenes look at what life is like for the TV star. Not only does Lea Michele talk about her early years on Broadway and her breakthrough role on Glee but she, also, discusses how she stays sane while managing her busy schedule.  While she talks about her personal style and favorite red carpet moments, my favorite chapters were the ones about beauty, food, and fitness.  While I haven’t had time to try the recipes yet, I think the Shaved Radicchio, Parmesan, and Truffle Whole Wheat Pizza with a Sunny-Side-Up Egg looks delicious as does the Egg White Frittata. She, also, includes a breakdown of her beauty routine as well as a look at her fitness routine.

Even if you are not a fan of Glee, Brunette Ambition is worth perusing. There is so much information that I’ve filled my copy with sticky notes so I will have an easier time finding things again.


Blogging For Books sent me an extra copy, so I am passing it along to one of you!

  2. I’m a huge Glee fan, or I was until they all moved to NYC. I’ll stick it out for the final season though. My July favorites are flip flops, pedicures, leaving my hair curly, and lots of fresh fruit!
