I’ve been a fan of the Hot Moms Club for years – their philosophy jives so much with what I strive for here on Mommies with Style. From their About Us page, “A Hot Mom is a woman who is confident and empowered. Being a Hot Mom is an attitude and a lifestyle, it doesn’t matter what age you are, what race, shape or size, EVERY mom can be a Hot Mom.” Love it.
So I was quoted in her last book and now Jessica Denay, the founder of Hot Moms Club, has released another book titled: The Hot Moms to Be Handbook. The book is a re-issue and talks about all sorts of fun topics of interest to pregnant Moms including eating healthy, fun products for a new Mom, products for Dad, baby moons, baby showers and much more. By the way, Mommies with Style is listed as a favorite blog in the book! Yay! Get the Hot Moms to Be Handbook on Amazon for $11.55. It makes a great baby shower gift!
Mommies with Style had a chance to interview Jessica about the book and here’s what she had to say:
Mommies with Style: So tell us about the book. I loved the Hot Moms Handbook. How does the Hot Moms to Be book differ?
Jessica Denay: HarperCollins picked up the series, this is the first title we are re-launching. The Hot Mom to be Handbook focuses on Pregnant woman, it’s silly fun advice like avoiding McSteamy or McDreamy doctors and working the ‘perks’ of pregnancy by playing the “I’ve Gotta Pee” card to get you out of any unwanted conversations, to important information like Cord Blood Registry. A Hot Mom is a prepared mom, so from relationships to money saving tips, this book has it all, I’ve added quotes and stories from top experts, writers and celebrities, mixed in with my own experiences. This book focuses on the fun parts of pregnancy and it’s meant to inspire and excite moms while giving all the best tips on great products, websites, books and anything in the world of maternity.
Mommies with Style: What does it mean to be a Hot Mom, really? Does one have to be a size 2 and where couture clothes, or is there more to it than that?
Jessica Denay: Being a Hot Mom is an attitude, a way of being, its feeling confident. At Hot Moms Club we believe you are not the best mom unless you are the best YOU! Looking good and feeling good are interconnected, when you look put together you feel better about yourself-it’s a fact and when feel good on the inside you want to reflect that in the way you look, walk and talk. Looking your best is just one part of being a Hot Mom.
Mommies with Style: You’re a single Mom, right? How do you balance it all? Parenting and working? Any secret tips?
As a single mom I am very lucky to be co-parenting with someone who is a very involved dad, they love to spend a lot of time together. So I have a lot of support and no drama. I think the secret to juggling work and family is simply to loose the gilt, whether you work because you have to or because you want to-we all have responsibilities, make sure the time you do spend with your kids is quality time. Put your phone down and when you are with your kids really be with them.http://www.momtobesweepstakes.com gives you a chance to win a Bratt Décor nursery, Cord Blood banking, a Micralite stroller, Trumpette socks and goodies and much much more…
