My very first eBook — the Poor & Pretty Guide to Natural Beauty on a Budget — has been out for just over a week now, so I thought I’d give you a little peek inside. It’s so much more than DIYs! Have a look at the contents:
Though it started as a compilation of natural beauty tutorials, as I was putting it together, I realized that my eBook was lacking a whole lot of foundational knowledge. Sure, you can jump right into trying out DIY masks and shampoos, but how will you be able to “solve” your skincare problems without knowing what type of skin you have? Or what effects different essential oils and ingredients will have on your skin, hair, and body? Even though I knew this would make the writing process take a lot longer, I knew I had to include this information in the book.
Adding in basic body care tips, a compendium of natural ingredients and essential oils (as well as ingredients to avoid) more than doubled the page count, but it turned the book into a real reference guide. Whether you’re just beginning to explore making your own cosmetic creations or you’ve been doing this for a while, you’ll refer back to this guide a lot, I promise!
The best part? Photos! Don’t you hate when you buy a DIY guide or a recipe book without photos? I need a visual cue so I know how it’s supposed to turn out! I made sure to include photos of almost every tutorial in this book. :)
