Simple Ways to Add Style to Your Life
Paperback      ISBN: 1451623801
The low-stress, high-fun way to entertain, shop, decorate and indulge your way to domestic nirvana.

What is domestic bliss? It's bringing the office party home just because you have fresh mint and a secret mojito recipe. It's making your houseguest feel like he's at the Ritz even when he's crashing on your sofa. It's retreating home after a harried day and taking solace in a perfectly placed flea market find.

Home is the new hot spot and in Domestic Bliss, London's favorite young style expert makes all your nesting fantasies come true. This blueprint for domestic bliss will work whether your posse is coming to your castle or you're planning an evening for one. With wit and savoir faire, Konig shows how to:

  • Mix family hand-me-downs and new treasures
  • Tackle clutter with simple solutions
  • Turn your world around even when you feel fat, lonely and hate all your clothes and furniture.

Domestic Bliss is about creating moments of perfection in an otherwise chaotic world.

Eat Better, Live Cleaner, Be Happier--All Without Driving Your Family Crazy!
Hardcover      ISBN: 1623367603
A real, no-holds-barred take on making smart, healthy choices for you and your family.

In Green Enough, Mamavation blogger Leah Segedie uncovers the truth behind the food and household products that are misleadingly labeled "all-natural" and healthy but are actually filled with chemicals and toxins. From furniture to packaged food, Leah guides you through detoxifying your home, diet, and lifestyle, showing you how to make the best choices possible.

She exposes the brands and products that contain toxic and hormone-disrupting ingredients and gives guidelines on choosing safer products and organic produce that are free from toxic and persistent pesticides. She instructs you on making the move to meat, dairy, and eggs that are free of antibiotics, GMOs, growth hormones, and dangerous pathogens. She explains at what phases of childhood children are the most vulnerable and need more protection. And she includes delicious and kid-approved recipes to help you detoxify your cooking routine. It's not about being perfect or 100% clean--none of us are--it's about being green enough.
