Book Review: If You Give a Mom a Martini

You all know of my love for books.

You also know of my recent venture into product reviews.

Now I've found a way to combine the two.


I was lucky enough to snag a copy of Julie Klappas and Lyss Stern's new book If You Give a Mom a Martini.

From their website: the book is a love letter to the uber modern mom, and a reminder that even the most “together” moms need time to reflect, to dream, to relax, to take care of themselves, and to find the good energy required to go back out there and face the music, even if it is Mr. Golden Sun.

And let me say, I love this book! Not only is it snarky and quick-witted, it's got beautiful illustrations by Izak Zenou. With a foreword by Christie Brinkley and tips from well-known celebs like Kelly Ripa it's the perfect indulgence for a over-worked Mama.
One of the best parts of the book, it's short, sweet and to the point. Because we, and our authors know, Moms don't have all the time in the world. It's a guarantee that any Mom can find a helpful tip to find 10 minutes of peace and quiet for herself.
You can pick up this book at your local bookstore or order straight from their website.
