Summary

From the best-selling author of Girl Code and Like She Owns the Place! 

As women, we have become professional self-critics. We've become so convinced by society that we need to attain a level of perfection that just isn't real. Whether it's trying to get skinnier, look younger, get that promotion, please our parents, get fuller lips or rid ourselves of cellulite - we're on a never-ending mission to change and it always winds up making us feel like crap. Instead, why not focus on all the fabulous qualities we already possess? There is so much to celebrate when we look at all our accomplishments. 

In this straight-up girlfriend's guide, lifestylist and wellness coach Cara Alwill Leyba encourages women to discover what makes them sparkle so that they can design the lives they desire and deserve. So raise your glass and toast yourself. You're about to start shimmering, shining, and dazzling every day! Because isn't everything better when it sparkles?

Poorly written

It seems like anyone can write a book these days. This stuff is just common sense. So poorly written.

loved the book but it ended really quick

I loved the book, I think her other books are better because they go into more depth. This one felt super short

Brilliant!

Took a while for me to find an up lifting Audiobook that kept my attention. I loved the content and really like that Cara was the narrative on her own audiobook. It was easier to keep interest knowing it was her own voice.

Meh

Could not keep my attention. Found my thoughts drifting off and realized I had no idea what she'd been saying. Would have chosen a different narrator.
