#8- Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2011- The Hot Mom’s Handbook Review & Giveaway CLOSED

“The Hot Moms Club is doing for moms what Sex and the City did for single women…empowering them.”
—Natasha Henstridge

Jessica Denay, author of The Hot Mom to Be Handbook and founder of The Hot Moms Club, now brings us The Hot Mom’s Handbook—the ultimate resource for moms who refuse to set aside their sense of style and self from bump to baby and beyond! This book is an absolute must for fans of The Modern Girl’s Guide to Motherhood and The Girlfriend’s Guide to Surviving the First Year—with indispensible advice that hot moms like Courtney Cox, Jennifer Garner, Trista Sutter, Kristi Yamaguchi, and Brooke Burns have already taken to heart!

Book Description

You’ve made it through nine months of baby bump, but now baby has arrived and it’s a whole new set of rules. Not sure how to navigate this brave new world and new you?

From Jessica Denay, founder of the Hot Moms Club, comes the ultimate resource for moms of all ages trying to balance everything from playdate to date night, nightlife to nightlight. In this laugh-out-loud yet practical guide, Jessica shares how to break loose that inner Hot Mom and tackles everything from avoiding MILPs (Moms I’d Like to Punch) to Making Your Minivan Rock. Along with advice from celebrity moms, experts, and friends, the book has insights from Jessica’s personal journey, as well as cheeky anecdotes you won’t find in traditional parenting books.

Plus, don’t miss her useful Baby on a Budget tips: Did you know that baby wipes double as makeup remover and how a little baby powder gives greasy hair a fresh start? Also, as a top celebrity party planner, Jessica shares her creative birthday and holiday ideas that will make your bashes stand out!

I was skeptical before I opened The Hot Mom’s Handbook.  Sure everyone wants to be hot, but isn’t it presumptuous to assume that you are indeed,  hot?  Well, I need not have been so worried, because the title isn’t quite what I thought.  Rather than being “hot” in a  purely physical sense, a Hot Mom is more than that.  Here is a description  of what a Hot Mom is by the author.

“What exactly is a Hot Mom?  A Hot Mom is confident and empowered.  It doesn’t matter what age you are, what shape or size, EVERY mom can be a Hot Mom!  It’s a choice.  It’s an attitude and a way of being.  It’s knowing that you are not the best mom unless you are the best YOU.”

With that definition of a Hot Mom who doesn’t want to be one?  The Hot Mom Handbook is an amazing resource for…..EVERYTHING.   I was really blown away by the wide variety of topics that are discussed.  It is like absolutely everything relating to being a mom and woman is included in the book.  Make up, clothes, cleaning, diet, exercise, romance, sex, baby products….the list goes on and on.  This book is a MUST have for any new or expecting mother.   Attending a baby shower anytime soon?  This would make a great gift.   You flatter the mom by calling her a Hot Mom, but when she actually reads it she has an awesome reference at her fingertips.  The book is written (purposely) in small sections which are easy to read in many sittings.  Jessica understands that a mom just isn’t going to have the time to read long passages and small detailed parts make for the most effective grasp of the information.   Here is a sample of some of the sections included in the book.

Baby on a Budget– which provides cheaper alternatives

Stuff to Drool Over– obviously, this provides those crazy expensive items that celebrities and millionaires can purchase and the average mom does indeed drool over

Eco-Minded Mama– this section provides energy efficient or environmentally friendly alternatives

Overall I found The Hot Mom’s Handbook to be a positive helpful guide to being a mom.  It is so easy to lose yourself in motherhood, but this book helps a woman claim a sense of herself.

Need to purchase  a gift for a new mom or mom-to-be for Mother’s Day?  Consider The Hot Mom’s Handbook it is available from Amazon for $11.55
