Despite the promise of a nice lunch date with her closest ladies, the Honest Company founder still cut a pretty somber looking figure, and didn’t cheer up any when she had to cough up the $1.50 for an hour’s parking.
The sun-kissed actress appears on the cover of the October issue of Self magazine, which features Alba strutting her stuff in the sand in a blush-colored bandeau and matching ruched skirt-the flawless ensemble to hug those killer curves.
“I know, right?” Alba said, laughing. “I felt like an impostor”, she revealed. It’s not until you feel whole in yourself that you fit in anywhere.
Her daughters Honor, seven, and haven, four, were impeccable matched in a pair of adorable summer dresses. But her comments about how she successfully made the transition from screen siren to business mogul are the most intriguing. While Alba assumed an actual emergency was cause for such unwarranted man-handling, she soon found out it came courtesy of Kim Kardashian’s youngest sister, “I thought there was like a fire“. “I was very calculated”. I saved my money, invested wisely and marketed myself. “And it took me becoming a mum to actually feel that way”. “I’ve been building my own personal brand over time”.
A part of that brand is her multi-million dollar corporation The Honest Company, which she launched in 2012. “My most productive thinking often happens during or after a workout”, she said. Although she admits she’s not a fan of going to the gym, like most of us, it does give her the energy to jump-start her day. “You can do a 3- or 5- or 15-minute meditation”, she said, “and just disconnect”.
