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.

    "Inspirational!"

    very relatable book from Dulce. I've grown so much more respect for her after this book. I've watched her on youtube since the beginning and follow her blog and social media. A humble role model and relatable.... big plus to her for being successful and proud LATINA

    "Awesome and Inspiring"

    Loved listening to this book while driving. Inspired me to not give up on what I want to do in life on the job or family wise.

    "Not a fan of this narrator...."

    I liked the story but wish Dulce would have narrated it herself. The narrator was drab.

    "inspiring"

    as a long time viewer of Dulce, i am extremely proud of her. I can genuinely say i have grown up with this woman, but her book is wildly inspiring from begining to end. Her tips on life from relationships to a short insert about money management spoke volumes to me personally. this is a great listen/read for anyone trudging through life and needs encouragement. she kept it real in this!
