The Skinny Confidential talks book reviews.Hi!

There’s been a lot of e-mails regarding the book, so I wanted to just share some real deal/organic/authentic TSC book reviews with you guys.

Enjoy!!

So.

The first review was from The Fashion Bite ( << how cute is she in black & white above?? ). Katie’s a close friend and she works for Blog-Doo, so I was thrilled when she positively reviewed the book here.

My girlfriend, Annie Lawless from Suja Juice & the blog, BLAWNDE also showcased the book here & her pic is seriously the cutest thing ever…right?!

Lisa from The Skinny On Health wrote about the book too in a fun, pretty way here. Love her brunette lock— so pretty!

San Briego attended the book launch & rated her party experience here.

The Skinny Confidential talks book reviews.Sara Montazami is like, babetown x 10. I die over her. She’s a blogger from Sweden that was apart of my workout group & has a rocking bod & personality. Her book review can be found here.

My stepmom shared a skinny recipe from the book on her blog, Burlap & Crystal; I literally crave anything and everything she cooks/bakes/makes.

And lastly, Jenni Raincloud talks a lot about the fitness section of the book and Taylor shares a video book review— enjoy!

Basically I wanted to share all the book reviews for anyone who’s asked via e-mail or Twitter/Instagram. I hope this helps! You can find more book reviews here.
