I started reading Girl, Wash your Face this morning and finished it just a few hours later. It has been a really long time since I read an entire book from start to finish in one day…I haven’t done that in years.
Let’s back up a little bit and talk about the tea first. While reading Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis, I drank Mandarin Orange Spice by Celestial Seasonings.
It’s an herbal tea. It reminds me of a tea my Mama used to make me when I was little. (You can find a recipe very to the one she made here.) Full of citrus and cloves.
I found Mandarin Orange Spice from Celestial Seasonings a few years ago on Amazon when I was craving the kind Mama made but, I didn’t know how she made it at the time.
I was really happy when it arrived to find that it was a lot like her recipe; minus the fact that there is actually no tea in it, since it is an herbal tea.
You can find it on Amazon here. They even have it in K-cup form.
Now on to the book.
Girl, Wash Your Face by: Rachel Hollis
I had heard a lot of good things about this book for a long time now, so last month when I ordered a lot of books for Tuesday Starts with Tea I decided to pick this one up too.
There was a reason for all the hype I had heard. Like I said I finished it the same day I started it which probably says something in itself considering how I’ve been taking my time reading lately.
Throughout the whole book Rachel teaches you to stop listening to the negative thoughts we tell ourselves. I feel like there is something everyone can learn from this book, since in each chapter she covers a different lie our mind tells us…
There is a chapter for people who think they are bad moms, there is a chapter for people who struggle with thinking they aren’t the right weight…there is even a chapter for people who think they are bad at sex. I only told you a few of them. There are 20 chapters, which means 20 things that you maybe feeling like you are failing at, but Rachel teaches you that you aren’t actually failing at all, plus at the end of each chapter she tells you what helped her overcome thinking negatively about the topic of whatever chapter you are reading.
Oh, and close to the end of the book she also mentioned how important it is to write your vision. You guys know how much I love that!
While reading this book I laughed, and I cried. There were a lot of things she pointed out that I have struggled with too. I’m going to be honest here, I’m glad to find out that I’m not the only person out there that has worried whether I’m good at sex. I always worried about it because of being in a wheelchair, in the past a few situations came up where I had reason to believe I wasn’t…but at least over the years I’ve learned that is not true.
So…anyway. Great book! I definitely recommend it. You can buy it here.
