The bookworm in me is proud to share some of my current reads which I highly recommend as these can greatly contribute to the different aspects of your life- fashion, finance, family, fun and food.
Clockwise: Parisian Chic by Ines de la Fressange & Sophie Gachet, Healthy Cooking for Happy Kids by Katrina Ripoll and Lara Saunders, Happier At Home by Gretchen Rubin, Bossypants by Tina Fey, and I Wish They Taught Money In High School by Clarissa Seriña-De La Paz and Sharon Que
Happier At Home by Gretchen Rubin, Php 295.
Based from her first book, The Happiness Project, which I blogged about HERE. Gretchen came up with another happiness book that focused on factors that matter at home. After all, every day, a person’s life starts and ends from his/her home. Here, she shares tips on how she strives to make her home a place of greater simplicity, comfort and love. Just like the Happiness Project, she created doable monthly tasks to help her readers achieve a happier home.
I Wish They Taught Money In High School by Clarissa Seriña-De La Paz and Sharon Que, Php 500.
A simple approach on understanding money and finance, both that aren’t really taught in school nor are they open topics usually discussed at home. With this book, you get to learn the ropes when it comes to investing your savings, upgrading your money psyche and even working smart.
Get style tips from French fashion icon Ines de la Fressange herself. You can also learn how to slowly edit your own personal style according to your lifestyle and how you want to present yourself in a chic way of course. These and some Parisian fashion, you can pick up from this style book.
Bossypants by Tina Fey, Php345.
A witty, funny book that is full of life lessons, all of which will depend on how you can relate to Saturday Night live comedian Tina Fey, who amusingly portrayed Sarah Palin. Before becoming a Bossypants, she was an ordinary girl who had a dream of becoming a comedian on TV. Dreams really do come true e? At least for her. It’s worth the read if you wanna know how Tina made it and what she’s been through, as she reveals all. I’m halfway through this book and I have a few insights on how to become somebody, somewhere. As what Tina Fey said, you’re no one until someone calls you bossy.
Mothers Katrina and Lara published this healthy cookbook because they felt the need for Filipino moms to discover easy, affordable and healthy ways to feed their families, and to understand the importance of healthy eating in childhood. Nutrition being one of the most discussed topic for mothers and parents, this book is a great tool to expose our children to the concept and truth that healthy food is yummy food. I have tried some of Katrina & Lara’s recipes and these dishes got thumbs up for my children. They’re easy peasy to do, simple and of course healthy. Most of the recipes are comfort food you can serve even to your adult guests who prefer delicious, home cooked meals.
