Jessica Alba Glamour UK: The Honest Life and Company

I've always admired Jessica Alba. She has beauty, brains, a supportive husband, two beautiful daughters and has lent support to a number of charities throughout her career.

Jessica recently authored a book entitled "The Honest Life" and co-founded a new business venture called The Honest Company. Each focuses on safe, non-toxic, and Eco-friendly products for babies & family. The website sells non-toxic bath & body products, cleansers for your home, and baby products. The book offers great tips on everything above, and so much more (check out the video). It's truly refreshing to see a celebrity market something other than perfume, nail polish or another clothing line.

I came across Jessica's photo shoot and interview with  Glamour UK Magazine (May 2013). Click HERE to read it. She talks about her new business venture and encourages other women to do the same! I always love that. She offers a lot of positivity, encouragement and motivation. I'm not surprised, knowing her history. I think we need more of that in today's society. Wouldn't you agree? Check it out! It's a great read! Have an awesome Tuesday!

I have always thought that Jessica Alba seems like such a genuinely lovely person - she comes off as kind, considerate and down to earth. Not to mention beautiful! With that said, I'm always astounded by how limited her acting skills are, and I have to wonder how she's landed any parts at all... but I'm all for granting celebrity status to people who are going to do good rather than just show up on the front page of tabloids, so I say more power to her :)


I love this woman!


Carole Poirot said...

She's probably one of the few celebrities who seem quite genuine to me. There are so many out there with their "businesses" which seem so ego-driven, but somehow she seems to stay away from the big media circus and genuinely do a "real" job with her products. Good for her :-)

Meghan Silva said...

She is really such a phenomenal person I'm a huge fan.

What fabulous photos. For me, like you mentioned, I think it is so refreshing when a celebrity does anything other than a perfume range.

Tina Bradley said...

I am also a fan! She's truly inspiring. T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

flysongbird said...

i love the photos!i feel happy whenever someone in power encourages others to reach out andtry to do something..and what she is doing is much more useful than what gloop paltrow did with her book full of recipes of 75$ worth of breakfasts and whatnot.

MaysaAndSunshine said...

She is one hot mama with an angelic face. She seems so different than most Hollywood moms. I will definitely check out her products. Thanks Kim for sharing. My goodness i felt like i disappeared from Blogsphere too long, totally miss blogging.

LyddieGal said...

I've been a fan of Jessica's for a while (since her Dark Angel days, haha)
And her company sounds amazing - it's refreshing to see celebs using their money and influence to create something more than a line of shoes.

oomph. said...

i'll have to look into her product line. funny, when you become a mom, suddenly the products you've been using all along are no longer good enough for your kids!

Ivana said...

She is one fabulous and inspiring lady! It's exactly as you said: it's so refreshing to see a celebrity work on something of her own, not just endorse another perfume or pseudo create a clothing line. She's definitely one to look up to!

Hope you are well, my dear friend!

Jessica is always a stunner on red carpets Kim. She's not my favorite in movies but she certainly has a great sense of style and is doing something very positive with this eco friendly project. This is a great photoshoot too!

I love how Jessica Alba has made being a mom her priority. I won a copy of her book in Heel In Mint's giveaway recently and am working through it now. It has many great tips on healthy and eco friendly living. I'll have to write a review soon and share some of them.
