All The Beauty + Wellness Books You Should Add To Your Reading List

Have you ever read a book that completely changed the way you thought about a certain topic? I have! The first time I read Eat Pretty, I was obsessed. It was so inspiring and motivational. But most importantly, it was easily digestible and provided realistic action items that you could implement immediately. This list of books on beauty and wellness should be on every nightstand or coffee table of any woman who values a healthy, happy life.

I read this book right before my wedding and even had a private consult with the author. It forever changed the way I looked at food and beauty.
