Dear Me, Here's to YOU!
Reviewed in the United States on September 14, 2012
This book is a down to earth hilarious account of learning how to dust yourself off, shine yourself up and really learn what makes you sparkle. Cara Alwill Leyba is your average woman, and she provides real average woman advice. I'd LOVE to eat, pray and love my way to self discovery, but unfortunately that's not in my budget this year. "Sparkle" provides a realistic approach to finding your inner shine by asking you to take a few minutes somewhere in the throws of real (sometimes chaotic, stressful, demanding, teeth gritting) life. Grab a cocktail (yay) and dig down deep. Cara and I have polar opposite everyday lives, but at the core most women want to feel the same things-to feel the life in living and the love in loving. Reading Cara's journey to find her sparkle felt much like the conversation during a wine filled dinner with your best girlfriends. She dishes on the highs, the lows, the really lows and will make you laugh the whole way through. It's about a real woman who discovered what it was that would really make her happiest; and went out into the world and got it. Sparkle is a fun read and perfect for anyone in need of a little inspiration. In this case it was me. I forgot I was a person other than "Mommy." This book really put a smile on my cheerios and chocolate milk splattered face.
