Jessica Alba Writing Healthy Living Guide and Cookbook

Good ol' Gwynie isn't the only actress who can make the modern woman feel like a flaming pile of doo doo. Jessica Alba is getting into the game too. The gorgeous starlet who once graced the cover of Playboy is taking on whole living in her new book The Honest Life: Living Naturally and True to You.

Last year Alba teamed up with serial entrepreneur Brian Lee and environmental advocate Christopher Gavigan to launch The Honest Company, which is basically a mommy blog for those obsessed with organic living. All of the recon for the site -- from strategies to maintaining a clean diet to her favorite family-friendly recipes -- will be shared in the book.

Of course, no modern day book launch could be complete without a video teaser. Between Alba talking about crafting with her oldest daughter named Honor (oh dear) and giving DIY tips to redoing your house from top to bottom, it's almost too much.

If you want to see Alba in the flesh, she'll be signing copies over at Vroman's on Saturday, March 16 at noon. Til then, here's the video.
