GIVEAWAY: Didn't I Feed You Yesterday? A Mother's Guide to Sanity in Stilettos

For my second giveaway in my July of Giveaways is a book I was sent for review. However, I am unable to review this book and I want to give it to a good home with another blogger who will read it and review it.

The book is Didn't I Feed You Yesterday? A Mother's Guide to Sanity in Stilettos by Laura Bennett. You may remember Laura Bennett from Season 3 of Project Runway.


Here is the synopsis of the book from Goodreads:

Laura Bennett is not a soccer mom or a PTA mom or a helicopter mom—and she’s certainly not mother of the year. Another breed of mother entirely, Laura is surely more Auntie Mame than June Cleaver. As a busy mother of six, Laura is on an impossible mission: raising a brood of fast-moving, messy, wild sons in the jungles of Manhattan. So what other choice does she have than to sit back, grab a martini, and let the boys be, er, boys? In Didn’t I Feed You Yesterday?, Laura gives her irreverent take on modern motherhood and proves that a strong sense of humor and an even stronger sense of self are the mother’s milk of sanity. In a series of refreshingly candid and hilarious anecdotes, she unapologetically breaks every rule in the Brady Bunch playbook: She gives her kids junk food, plays favorites, and openly admits to having “a genetic predisposition to laissez-faire parenting.” Children, she observes, don’t need constant supervision from neurotic, perfectionist parents. Allow kids to make mistakes and entertain themselves and they’ll turn out just fine—even if you do sometimes forget to pick them up from school. Beyond the mayhem of a life among males, Laura celebrates the glories of womanhood with a generous helping of wit and style. She gives thanks to the fashion gods for the essentials—red lipstick, Manolo Blahniks, and Lycra shapewear—but reminds us that true style comes from an inner compass that points directly at oneself. In every aspect of life, Laura gives one simple, powerful piece of advice: “Dress like you want it or stay home.” Brutally honest, outrageous, and sure to raise a few eyebrows, Didn’t I Feed You Yesterday? is a riotously funny read—and it’ll go fabulously well with your new handbag.

  1. Sounds funny - but I can't help thinking...Manolo Blahniks? Here is where my bias towards (against?) rich people come in. It's easy to be so relaxed when you're not worried about making rent, working when you feel like you NEED to be with your kids, being available. Some of us had to let the kids work things out on their own, or couldn't pick them up because WE were at WORK...or didn't even have a car!

    Whatever, I'll bet the book is funny, and I'm trying to let my biases be bygones......

  2. This is cool! It's inspiring to know that you read a lot of books and put on review of each book. I used to read 2 books every week but haven't had much time recently because of work. I will do my best to read more books once again because books help me travel in so many places and meet a lot of people.
