Review: Tranquilista by Kimberly Wilson

Infuse Your Life with tranquility, Panache, and A Dash of Joie De Vivre
As defined by the author, "a tranquilista is a woman who embraces her many sides: spiritual (she's a tranquility-seeker), creative (loves style), and entrepreneurial (calls her own shots). She hears fashion and philanthropy . . . entertaining and enlightenment . . . . She is full of aspirations and always seeking inspiration. Oh, and she sparkles. Literally."

Presenting a potpourri of real-world tips, inspiration from modern-day muses, and savvy sources for further exploration, Tranquilista offers everything you need to bring balance and bliss into your everyday life. With spirituality as its foundation, the book highlights creative individual expression and offers an entrepreneurial approach to everything from homemaking to brand building. Step-by-step projects and to-dos cover a tranquilista's key pursuits: meditation, setting goals, personal style, living green, and even launching a nonprofit. The aim throughout is to help you realize-and revel in-your unique potential to make a splash and make a difference.

Received from the publicist for review.

This book was just lovely from the moment I first beheld it. The cover was gorgeous and then to open the book and discover it was printed on 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper was just fabulous.

This was wonderfully readable, and had a great friendly feel to it. I loved the Model Muse section at the end of each chapter. The Savvy Source for Further Exploration notes were also fun and informative and I accumulated quite the list of future reads from them.

This one gets five stars. It was full of great tips for all areas of your life, from spirituality, to clothes and food, to travel and home, to work and everything else in between. This slim book really packed a punch! It is a great resource, and would make a wonderful gift. I know my girlfriends will be getting copies from me as part of their birthday gifts! This is definitely highly recommended!

★★★★★ = Loved It
