Radical Self Love by Gala Darling


Book synopsis(via Goodreads):

Have you ever dreamed of a life full of laughter, love and sequins... But felt totally clueless about how to make it happen? You're not alone. I spent years in soul-sucking jobs, battling depression, an eating disorder, and a preference for chaos and disaster, simply because I didn't know how to create the life I dreamed about.
In RADICAL SELF LOVE, you'll begin to discover exactly what makes you so magnificent, and you'll uncover a litany of tools and techniques to help you manifest a life that bursts with magic, bliss and adventure.

When you love yourself, life is limitless. You can do anything you want. It's time to throw off the shackles of expectation, and start living from your heart. It's time to astound yourself with how beautiful your life can be. It's time to treat every single day like a celebration... Cake, candles and confetti very much included!

***Many thanks to Net Galley and Hay House Publishing for the advanced reader's copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ***

This insomniac's opinion:

I've not been a big non-fiction reader in my life but recently have started a non-fiction book club and have been reading a rash of books to weed through and find ones that I want to share(do you have one that you love? If so, please comment with the name below!). 

I've followed Gala Darling's blog for quite some time and am enamored with her beautiful site that is image heavy and lovely. I was thrilled to get this book to review. Unfortunately, it wasn't for me. I felt that it was a book that was far more about living a life just like her and less about finding your own path. Pieces of it, like sections on fashion, felt stilted and judgmental. 

I think this book has an audience, but I, apparently, am not it. 

Worth staying up all night to read?

Not for me. I still love her blog, though. 

Rating: 

3 stars. Totally neutral. Not for me but others may like it.
