““Fun”, “Fabulous”, “Fantastic”. These words kept popping up in my mind as I read Kayla’s DIY Kitchen Chemistry. She writes in such a way that I literally felt like I was walking beside her at every step. I could see myself bending over the drums with her while she was pregnant, laughing at her children’s antics and hugging her through tough times. Kayla’s writing is so personal, that she will instantly become a friend, even if you’ve never met her. The way Kayla introduces her book in Chapter One had my cheeks hurting from smiling while reading. I love the “rest of the story…” sections and have come to love Kayla even more just from reading this Chapter.
I have owned many DIY cosmetics books and I can honestly say this is the first one where there is no room for question. Kayla answers everything before you can even think to ask, and puts it in an easy to use format. Kayla, thanks also for reminding us that failures are just big learning tools. Bravo to your third published book. Fantastic!” ~Laura Badcock, Essential Wholesale VP and Licensed Esthetician
