    I really did enjoy the insight, recipes, and tips shared throughout this book about exercise, beauty, fashion and health. However, this book was overly simplistic and I was missing vulnerability, honesty, and any deep insights. Kristin described what it takes to "Make it all Work" as...

    I never watched the reality TV show Kristin Cavallari was on but she is occasionally mentioned in news stories where I live due to her marriage to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. Kristin appears to be loved or hated the same way her husband is. Chicago is a no-bullshit town. Rega...

    If you're looking for plenty of good Laguna Beach and Hills dirt... this isn't your book. If you're looking for a vapid, simplistic book on diet, exercise, and how to dress yourself- bingo!! Cavallari's "recipe" for baby formula just about mAde my head explode. Don't bother with th...

    I have some odd obsession with reading "celebrity" books, especially if they're self-help books. Don't judge me. This was pretty much exactly what I expected. It was entertaining enough, but you definitely won't find any tips or advice in here that you don't already know. Still, it...

    A solid 2.5 stars and I'm rounding up! I did get a recipe I'd like to try, so that helped. I felt too old reading it. ...

    I have always liked Kristin Cavallari's style and this books hits a lot of topics that she loves *Cooking and healthy eating (lots of good recipes) *her family (the break up, her wedding, births, day to day home life) *exercise (lots of good photos and recommended exercises) *fashi...

    I have been a Kristin Cavallari fan since Laguna Beach aired and finally got to read her book, Balancing in Heels! She shared so many insights into her day to day life as a mother, wife and business woman. She is very honest about parts of her life that most celebrities hide. I also ...

    I enjoyed this memoir/lifestyle book more than most. I didn?t pay much attention to Kristin until recently, when her current family life and career caught my attention. She lives a healthy, balanced lifestyle with style and class that I admire and strive for. I felt like I got a pers...

    This book is half a memoir, half a compendium of tips on healthy eating, working out, fashionable dressing, beauty routines and makeup. It was an enjoyable light read, with a bunch of recipes that comply with healthy eating. same as beauty care recipes for face masks and other stuff. ...

    I am huge fan of Kristin, and wanted to give this a try. I was expecting more around her life (you do get some), but do not expect to go into this learning a lot about her time on Laguna Beach or the Hills. This covers some of that, but also covers her children (pregnancy), marriages, ...

    A good book about health, lifestyle, fitness & fashion. Only a 3 star rating because I didn't necessarily want to know this much about EVERYTHING in her life, but I did get the book to read about her health & wellness section as well as check out the recipes. I first checked th...

    I like Cavallari, she's witty and smart but her writing was dull. This book came across as a "to-do"list rather then a non-fiction book, and while I appreciated the tips and her personality that peeked through... it was not what I expected. Save your reading time for another book, or p...

    I was really surprised how well written this book was, I have read many "celebrity" lifestyle books, and this was one of the best. It is well organized and concise. I was impressed with the balance of topics and tips included. Visually appeals, cute, quick read. ...

    Great book that I will use as a reference for tips and recipes! I've always been a fan and agree with most of her dietary philosophy. Only part that annoyed me slightly was the work-out section, but even that was helpful. ...

    I really enjoyed this. Seeing how Kristin Cavallari looks at things and how she goes about certain things have opened my eyes and made me realise she actually has a point. I'm glad I read this book, there some really useful tips and make you second guess how you do things and ha...

    Totally disappointed in this book. I've been a fan of Cavallari's for years and thought this would be a funny and honest bio/advice for working moms. It was more like a 350 page manifesto preaching totally organic eating. Pages and pages of her raving about how easy it is to cook 3 tot...

    Written at a grade school level, extremely self promoting & egotistic. The plus is if you are actually a mom balancing it all, you will find much of her advice comical. Perhaps this is a satire.... extra star for pretty pictures and recipes. ...

    I didn't particularly want to read this book, but a friend lent it to me thinking I'd like it. This book was well organized and met every expectation that I had. The recipes in it seem decent, and the photos are beautiful. The problem? The content. Kristin Cavallari shows just how remo...

    I thought this book was amazing. I love Kristen so I knew I was going to like this book. I cant wait to try some of her recipes in her second book. ...

    I love Kristin's style and ambition to be the best mom for her family but other than the recipes I didn't find anything else in the book to be that helpful...her advice seems to be pretty much common sense to me. ...

    Cute, easy, lighthearted and refreshing read with some good tips and surprise recipes I?ll be trying! It?s almost like it?s a look book. Kristin is one of the few relatable and down-to-earth celebrities. It?s apparent family and health comes first for her. ...

    I'm not much for lifestyle books, but I couldn't resist when I saw Kristin wrote a book. I kind of feel like we grew up together since I watched her on Laguna Beach and she's only a year younger than me(SAME BIRTHDAY, TOO!) This was actually a really nice read seeing how she transforme...

    This was a quick read for me which means it's an even quicker read for everyone else since I'm such a slow reader. This book was all about Kristin Cavallari, I was not expecting a pulitzer prize winning book so my expectations were not high. I wanted to read it because I started watchi...

    I love memoirs and autobiographies, but this one is pretty worthless. It?s well-organized and full of gorgeous pictures, but the text is repetitive and she writes in circles. It?s pretentious and self-absorbed, and I often found myself literally rolling my eyes at her ?struggles,...

    I wanted to read this book after I started watching Kristin?s new show on E! Very Cavallari. It was everything I expected it to be! She discusses throughout her book relationships from dating Stephen from Laguna Beach as a teenager to marrying her husband Jay, what it took for her to...

    A very cute book written for any woman trying to balance and thrive in all aspects of their life. I enjoyed the beautiful pictures in this book and appreciated Cavallari's personal stories about her life and the advice that she gives her readers. She provides a holistic breakdown of al...

    Great great work from Kristin Cavallari. I loved the food, work out, fashion and beauty advices! Although, she lives in a "dreamworld" for "common" people, she manages to seem (and live) as a non celebrity person. I really enjoyed it, and I will often come back to look for her recipes ...
