Kim Barnouin has already told her fans how to "stop eating crap and start looking fabulous." But there's more to being a Skinny Bitch than eating well. Turns out, there's crap everywhere--not just in food, but in cosmetics, clothing, and home furnishings. Kim blows the lid on all of the nasties in our everyday stuff (everything from lipstick to sofa upholstery), and shows how we can make both small and big changes in our home, wardrobe, and beauty regimen--for living the Ultimate Skinny Bitch lifestyle!

Reviews

Library Journal, Meagan Storey, Virginia Beach, Sep 15, 2011 Since 2005, Barnouin has spread the "Skinny Bitch" series message with coauthor Rory Freedman. In Barnouin's second solo book, after Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook, she expands the discussion of cruelty-free, environmentally friendly living beyond the kitchen. She explains how toxins from household items such as paint and upholstery affect our bodies and the environment. Clothing and personal beauty items are similarly scrutinized with the sass and attitude (e.g., the subsection "Toxins in Our Hoo-Has") found in Barnouin's previous books. In sections like "The Shit List: The Worst Ingredients in Your Medicine Cabinet," her casual approach and clear language help consumers decipher labels full of chemical compounds. She also advocates sustainable-living practices as ways to avoid unhealthy products and overconsumption in general. Ample endnotes (primarily citing websites) allow readers to find more information, and the author provides specific product recommendations. VERDICT By now the target demographic knows what to expect from a "Skinny Bitch" title, and they will not be disappointed by Barnouin's latest book." Ethical holiday gift guide at Pomp & Circumstance " ... a kick-ass rundown of everything from cleaning products to furniture, cosmetics to accessories and well beyond. An encyclopedia of sorts, it proved for me a real page-turner. I was blown away by some of the realities she laid out."
