Publisher's Summary

Since posting her first makeup tutorial in 2008, Dulce Candy has become one of the top beauty stars on YouTube - boasting more than two million subscribers and garnering hundreds of millions of views for her bright and energetic how-to videos.
But before she became a style icon and a role model to millions of young women, Dulce struggled to make her way in the world. Having emigrated from Mexico to the United States when she was six years old, Dulce battled depression and low self-esteem as a teenager and eventually enlisted in the army in an attempt to turn her life around. It was here, on the battlefields of Iraq, that she finally uncovered and embraced her true passion - fashion and beauty - and gained the confidence to move on from her past, follow her dream, and launch what would become her wildly successful brand.
Part memoir, part manifesto, The Sweet Life is a fun, inspirational guide for any woman who wants to find success without compromising who she is.

I loved this book and feel inspired to go back to school and focus on my fitness. Thank you so much Dulce Candy. After losing my dad 4 months ago I have been very sad and cried many tears but this book gives me a different outlook in life.
