Balancing in Heels: My Journey to Health, Happiness, and Making it all Work Reviews

  • Meghan

    I was really surprised how well written this book was, I have read many "celebrity" lifestyle books, and this was one of the best. It is well organized and concise. I was impressed with the balance of topics and tips included. Visually appeals, cute, quick read.

  • Francielly

    It was a quick read, I liked it. Cute little stories, advice and some recipes.

  • Gina *loves sunshine*

    *Cooking and healthy eating (lots of good recipes)

    *her family (the break up, her wedding, births, day to day home life)

    *exercise (lots of good photos and recommended exercises)

    *fashion (tons of outfit recs, why she wears what and what she packs, her shoe line and jewelry line and how she puts herself together - makeup, outfits, etc)

    Happens to be we are passionate about a lot of the same things, well except 1. I have never been a fan of Jay Cutler - sorry Kristin - but I am glad she loves him so much!

    I am not sure what audience to recommend this to? It's not at all dishy and she barely touches on her time at Laguna beach and the Hills - just briefly describing how they manipulated relationships and faked/dubbed/edited their lives. This really is a story about a girl who loved herself, but didn't know herself. Her story of finding who she was - and on that path found out her happiest self is the one that is fueled by her husband, her children and her healthiest body and what she puts in it. You will get a lot of the same info you get in health books today - read ingredients, don't eat fake food and chemicals, eat real food, yes this takes a lot of prep time, yes this is your best path to a healthy body. All stuff I agree with and know already - glad to see 1 more happy family around the dinner table! I agree Kristin - the dinner table is where family life happens :)

    Great book. I’ve read it twice, but I also love Kristin Cavallari.

  • Elise Reding

    I love Kristin's style and ambition to be the best mom for her family but other than the recipes I didn't find anything else in the book to be that helpful...her advice seems to be pretty much common sense to me.

  • Sydney Somers

    Totally disappointed in this book. I've been a fan of Cavallari's for years and thought this would be a funny and honest bio/advice for working moms. It was more like a 350 page manifesto preaching totally organic eating. Pages and pages of her raving about how easy it is to cook 3 totally organic meals per day from scratch for her family of 5, while still having time to travel and make homemade hair and skin masks for herself so she glows. Gag. Normal human beings don't have this kind of time o

    I never watched the reality TV show Kristin Cavallari was on but she is occasionally mentioned in news stories where I live due to her marriage to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. Kristin appears to be loved or hated the same way her husband is. Chicago is a no-bullshit town. Regardless, I didn't know what to expect when I picked up her book. There's no denying if you are interested in the celebrity lifestyle-professional athlete-wife life, she's your girl. Beautifully staged photos of her

    I never watched the reality TV show Kristin Cavallari was on but she is occasionally mentioned in news stories where I live due to her marriage to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.

There's no denying if you are interested in the celebrity lifestyle-professional athlete-wife life, she's your girl. Beautifully staged photos of her at home with her husband and kids and "tips" on fashion, fitness and health. She is full on the healthy, organic food train and her recipes were the best part of the book. She's still in her 20's so the chapters on getting out of LA and changing her life by falling in love, having kids and moving to the suburbs were tedious and self absorbed. This is a me-me-me book, so there ya have it. Love it or hate it.

  • Dre McDermott

    Written at a grade school level, extremely self promoting & egotistic. The plus is if you are actually a mom balancing it all, you will find much of her advice comical. Perhaps this is a satire.... extra star for pretty pictures and recipes.

  • Katie Minion

    I didn't particularly want to read this book, but a friend lent it to me thinking I'd like it. This book was well organized and met every expectation that I had. The recipes in it seem decent, and the photos are beautiful. The problem? The content. Kristin Cavallari shows just how removed she is from the average person when she discusses the issues that only people of her social class can have: her body issues with "the tip of her nose" being too long; when she says she toiled at her shoe busine

    I didn't particularly want to read this book, but a friend lent it to me thinking I'd like it. This book was well organized and met every expectation that I had. The recipes in it seem decent, and the photos are beautiful. The problem? The content. Kristin Cavallari shows just how removed she is from the average person when she discusses the issues that only people of her social class can have: her body issues with "the tip of her nose" being too long; when she says she toiled at her shoe business even though her agent helped with the most difficult part of starting a business by making business introductions for her; and when she said she has made the choice to put her family before work and only works when she absolutely loves a project, as if being picky with jobs is a luxury everybody has. These comments show how she doesn't understand how 90% of Americans live. It's saddening to me that these are the types of books that middle-class Americans are buying and want to read, and that we look up to her for guidance on how to live our lives.

    If you're looking for plenty of good Laguna Beach and Hills dirt... this isn't your book.

    If you're looking for a vapid, simplistic book on diet, exercise, and how to dress yourself- bingo!!

    Cavallari's "recipe" for baby formula just about mAde my head explode. Don't bother with this one- it's pretty stupid.
