I won a copy of this book through the Goodreads First Reads giveaway program in the hopes that I would leave an honest review.

You may have figured out by now that I am not a make-up person (I never have it on in any of the pictures I post with my reviews) and Dulce Candy Ruiz is very much a make-up person, so we're almost polar opposites. This fact had me a little worried going into this book, but I shouldn't have been. Mostly, this book isn't about make-up, at least not directly.

For me this book read a lot like a more mature version of Miley Cyrus's Miles To Go, especially the beginning where Dulce Candy talks about her childhood. Although the two childhoods were vastly different, the tone of voice while discussing them was similar. It was very conversational and I was very intrigued.

When the book moved on to the business aspect of Dulce Candy's life, I started to lose interest. It was still the same conversational tone, but it wasn't as engaging for me. In spite of that, I felt like the author made some very great points about life in general; a person doesn't have to dream of YouTube stardom to benefit from them.

I would recommend this book most to teenage girls; girls who can still benefit from the lessons of Dulce Candy's life before the make some of the same mistakes she did growing up. Girls that have likely been following her, or Jenna Marbles, or some other fashion and beauty vlogger. Not only would they relate better than I did, but they have more to learn too.

In general, I'm not a huge fan of reading, but I absolutely enjoyed reading this book. I have always loved watching YouTube videos. I watch countless YouTube gurus/vloggers. Although I am not currently subscribed to Dulce on YouTube, I wanted to read her book. I found it an extremely easy read. I loved how each chapter is broken down into small sections. It made me fly through the book in only a few days! I'd definitely recommend this book. I loved it. I loved the tips she shared and the insight into her life that she gave us.

Love Dulce! This book was an easy read and she kept readers engaged. I love that she was more personal in the book. I have been a long time fan of her since the beginning and it was refreshing to see a more personal and in-depth side of her that we may not always get to see in the YouTube videos. This book reflects how she has grown as a person and a successful entrepreneur. She included some information and a few tips on blogging etc., but I did however wish that she went into greater details (for my own reasons because I am pursuing the same career), but at the same time, the book was pretty balanced and I presume that will be a second book....maybe? If so can't wait!

I have watched Dulce for years on Youtube so when I saw that her book was available, I just had to get it. This book is great if you need some positive in your life and some great motivation with whatever goals you are trying to achieve. Her experiences she writes about help inspire and empower you to conquer any obstacles or help you find the person you want to be. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to anyone looking for some motivation and a way to self-reflect.

Dulce candy is a very inspirational beauty guru who I look up to in many ways. I love the way she thinks and is. She is a beatific person inside and out. This books tells you exactly how she is and it gets you inspired to try new activities that you have been wanting to try for a while now. I'm glad she released this book because it helped me get to know her a little better. I recommend this to every girl out there who loves Dulce!

I was able to connect to Dulce on so many levels (especially her personal weaknesses in her youth). She is incredibly inspiring and motivates me to continue building myself esteem, my brand, and my personal happiness. Today's failures and negativity does not determine my tomorrow. Thank you Dulce for sharing! Love love love!!!!

I love Dulce and her book, I've followed her since she began filming youtube videos, she is an inspiration and someone I aspire to be. Her journey is amazing and shows you can be anybody you put your mind to. I'm not much of a reader, but I loved reading the sweet life. Perfect read before bedtime, I always wake up with a healthy mindset to start my day.
