As you may have heard, in 2012, Jessica Alba launched The Honest Company. A company dedicated to bringing family products that are safe, Eco-friendly, stylish, convenient, and affordable. They launched with a collection of completely toxic-free cleaning products as well as baby diapers and wipes.
This past week, she launched a further extension of this passion for healthy family living with a book, “The Honest Life”.
The event was great! We spent the afternoon at the swanky Mondrian Hotel LA we were each able to sit down with Jessica to talk about the book. She is not only beautiful actress, but more importantly a down to earth Mom who really is out for the best interest of her family!
She provided tips on how create a healthy environment in your home including: Taking your shoes off at the door so that you do not track in the chemicals from the world, open the window to let the fresh air in, and to read labels so that you know what you are bringing in your home.
When I asked her as one working mother to another what she does to prioritize and what she feels she has to let go to the waste side. Her very genuine answer was that her kids happiness was her number one priority and that everything else falls a very low second. She mentioned that by juggling so many things she has learned to give up perfection and to cut herself some slack. Both very important lessons that we think all Mom’s need to remind themselves!
In her book she not only reveals tips healthy living but how to make it fun, real and stylish. She also shares strategies for maintaining a clean diet (with recipes), tips on beauty, fashion, and DIY kids activities. Basics for living everyday naturally and authentically!
Was a great day to celebrate Jessica and her book!
