How to Embrace a Minimalist Wardrobe – Making the Most Out of Your Closet!

Kristen D. Smith

Price: FREE

This book was very helpful. I don’t have a ton of clothes but I do want to minimize because I know I don’t wear most of them, but needed help about how to begin because it is a little overwhelming just to look at your closet and jump right in when you’re not sure where. I thought the information she presented was well laid out. She gave practical step by step advice that was clear, concise, and well thought out. It wasn’t too long, which was great because when you want to get something like this accomplished you don’t want to spend a lot of time reading about how to do it. I liked the links she had in the book (ex. finding what clothes work best with your body shape, etc.) I also appreciated the lists of what a casual minimalist wardrobe might look like. She also had a section devoted to a man’s wardrobe, which I wasn’t expecting, but it was nice. I think my husband would appreciate it as he has trouble getting rid of clothes as well!


Did you know that most people only wear 20% of the clothes they own? Sure, it’s true that some clothes are for special occasions, but when you think about the other 80% of clothes that take up space and money that you could spend on more enjoyable things, it’s a wonder why we continue to create so much baggage for ourselves.

This is a book about minimalism, but it’s not about living out of a suitcase or only keeping one change of clothing. This is the book you want to read if you’re tired of looking at an overstuffed closet wondering what in the world will I put on, because you “have nothing to wear”. This is the book you want to read if you want getting dressed to be a peaceful experience, and this is the book you want to read if you want to feel fabulous in the clothes you own and confident in the furniture you store them in.

With practical applications, wardrobe and shopping tips, and sample wardrobes, this is a must read if you want to simplify and organize your way to tranquility in your closet.

Joey Cardillo

Price: FREE

Like many people, I’ve heard of the Paleo diet, along with dozens of other diets, but I really didn’t know much about it. I found this book to lay a good ground work (with some great hyperlinks) without getting too tied up in metabolisms, chemical reactions and such. I’m still not sure I’ve bought into the diet, but like they said at the end, try it for 30 days. So that sounds like a plan!

J. Foley

What is the Paleo Diet? Is the Paleo Diet healthy? And does it actually work?

Well, let us just say that if you’re interested in going the “Paleo route,” you came to the right place!

This book will completely change the way you look at your diet, and will also bring to light some great Paleo Diet facts and concepts. It also has a two-week Paleo Diet meal plan that can help kick start your journey to better health.

100 Natural Beauty Tips That Will Make You Beautiful Forever

Bella Sparelli

Price: 99 cents

I found the book very helpful in a number of way. First, in face mapping and eyebrow shaping it hightlighted some things I was doing wrong and gave some good advice I hadn’t thought of. I also found the information on Rosacea and aging which applied to me.
The book definitely has a lot more detail than Kindle books, more than a mile wide and an inch deep. There are lots of checklists, and a lot of it is stuff I already do, but I think every woman will find something in here that they can add to their own lists.
This is a very thorough book on skin care and make up that is perfect for the Kindle so you can keep it in front of you in the morning when you’re traveling.

Crochet Spa Gifts

Vicki Becker

Price: $2.99

This book is really clear in explaining how to do practical puffs and facecloths that are so useful at the spa but also at home. Just in time to make a few for the visit of the extended family and friends during the holidays. I particularly liked the tips she gave right off the first page on the different hook sizes that are not that obvious. The the video link at the end to further explain a specific stitch is also clear and complete as the explanations in this book. A little book that is both nice and useful, well illustrated and clearly explained. Off I go to get some bamboo thread and a G hook.

Suzanne Aubertin

You can create your own crocheted spa gift sets for Christmas gifts, birthdays, or any special occasion!

Gauge is not particularly important in this pattern so you are not limited to just using the yarns I used in making the examples.
You can use acrylic or cotton worsted weight yarn for the large puff and the smaller bath puff uses any size 3 thread.
The bamboo threads and yarns are very nice but there are lots of great yarns available.
So don’t limit yourself have fun using interesting yarns for this project.

Instructions are for a small and large bath puff made from Caron’s Spa yarn.
Spa yarns are 75% acrylic and 25% Bamboo. The yarn is a very soft and silky blend that works very well for making bath puffs.

A petite popcorn face cloth pattern is also included in this set.
The face cloth has a nice nubby texture for gentle exfoliation. I also designed a gift set that uses Aunt Lydia’s size three, 100% Bamboo crochet thread. Instructions are for a small bath puff and face cloth.

I hope you enjoy making Crochet Spa Gifts!

A Mom After God’s Own Heart

Elizabeth George

Price: $1.99

As with all of Elizabeth George’s books, A Mom After God’s Own Heart is a solid, practical, and very BIBLICAL look at what it means to be a woman who seeks the Lord. This book is filled with excellent application for a mother’s day to day life, yet succeeds in dealing with “heart issues” rather than just being a “to-do list.” I was encouraged and inspired by this read.

Mariel Hemingway’s Healthy Living from the Inside Out

Mariel Hemingway

Price: $2.99

The book is truly a “lifestyle” book and not merely a diet and fitness regime. She divides the book into 4 categories – Food, Exercise, Silence and Home – and then details her prescription for healthy living in each of these categories based on her personal experience.
The book is based on the solid foundation of incorporating healthy routines in all aspects of your life, and promotes many of the same practices that so many other books out today promote, e.g., reducing sugar intake, walking, taking up yoga, etc. But Ms. Hemingway presents it in a truly unique way by integrating her own story with gorgeous photos, many self-examining questions, and brief “healthy living” summaries in each chapter. I found her chapters on the Home particularly interesting, as they incorporate the idea that your surroundings “profoundly influence your internal safe,” and focus on cleaning out the clutter in your home and not just in your diet. The same can be said about the section on Silence, which goes in depth into the importance of reducing stress and finding balance in your life (and includes many suggestions for how to do so).
The book ends with a 30-day quickstart program including all 4 categories of “healthy living,” which suggest such simple things as trying a new lunch or dinner recipe on a particular day (she includes recipes in the book, although I wish there were more and hope she eventually comes out with a cookbook) or walking and practicing yoga each twice per week.
Overall, this would be a lovely addition to anyone’s library and provides a truly moderate and balanced perspective on what it means to live a happy and healthy life and how to go about doing so. Five stars.

K. Walters

No more bossy diets or impossible exercise routines. Instead, actress Mariel Hemingway divides healthy living into four foundational areas and reveals that looking and feeling great are just a few simple choices away. Examining our attitudes toward food, exercise, home, and silence, this easy-to-use guide teaches you to break old patterns, listen to your body, and make the best decisions for your life.

Walking the Bible

Bruce Feiler

Price: $1.99

A rare book changes the way you live and experience the world. Walking the Bible does just that and more. It is gracefully written, hugely entertaining, and enormously thoughtful. It is filled with great thrills … riding camels up Mount Sinai, standing on the very spot where Moses received the Commandments, tasting the salt pillars at Sodom and Gomorrah, crossing the Red Sea in a row boat, beholding the burning bush. Above all, it is a profound, deeply intelligent exploration of the Bible as a vibrant force in our lives and the world. Take the journey — feel the desert wind, smell the Bedouin feasts, climb inside the great pyramids — and soon, like the author himself, you will be transformed by the experience, even touched by the Holy Land and God.

Ben Sherwood

“The process of gathering these images reminded me of the Bible’s effortless ability to reinvent itself for each generation and each new way of searching.”
—Bruce Feiler

Its stories may be the best known in the world, but its locations have long been a mystery. Where did Noah’s ark land? Where did Moses receive the Ten Commandments? Where are the lost cities of Sodom and Gomorrah? Now, in Walking the Bible: A Photographic Journey, New York Times bestselling author Bruce Feiler offers an unprecedented heart-stirring adventure through the landscape of some of history’s most storied events.

Featuring Bruce Feiler’s own photography as well as his selections from professional collections, Walking the Bible: A Photographic Journey brings together breathtaking vistas, intimate portraits, and fascinating panoramas, providing firsthand access to the inscrutable land where three of the world’s great religions were born—and finally puts a face on the stories that have long inspired the human spirit.

Over several years, Feiler traveled nearly ten thousand miles through the deserts of the Middle East, which led first to his runaway national bestseller Walking the Bible. This new illustrated book follows his route, offering a thrilling photographic voyage through the actual places of some of the Bible’s most memorable events—from the heights of Mount Ararat, where Noah’s ark landed, to the desert outpost in Turkey, where Abraham first heard the words of God, to the summit where Moses overlooked the Promised Land.

Walking the Bible: A Photographic Journey chronicles a landscape that nurtured the relationship between humans and the divine, breathing new meaning into stories that have been a timeless source of inspiration.
