"How to Look Hot in a Minivan" - Book Giveaway (US) - ends 1/26

The Wendy Williams Show sent me a copy of "How to Look Hot in a Minivan" by Janice Min and I absolutely loved it.  I loved it so much I want to offer a copy to one of YOU!!  So, behold, the first* of what will be many giveaways! (*so bear with me while I figure it all out!)

Have you ever seen a photo of a celebrity mere weeks after having a a baby and they’re flaunting a bikini bod or rocking their size 0 jeans and you just sit there wondering  if there a weird cloning thing going on in Hollywood where some celeb-bot is out for the public to see while the ‘real’ celebrity is at home, unshowered,  with 50 pounds to lose and wearing thrown up on sweat pants like every other new Mom?
In reality, 'normal' women don't have a full staff of trainers, assistants, nannies, mannies, drivers, spray tanners, pool boys, housekeepers, dietitians, personal chefs, and millions of dollars at their disposal, so we'll give celebrities the edge on springing back quicker than most!











Even though my "Minivan" days are far behind me, this book offered so much practical advice - from fashion to working out to hair & beauty to diet tips - it's not just for Moms, although I think it would make a great gift for a new Mom














The author, who was editor in chief at US Weekly, really gives us an inside track on celebs. Inside this hardback book, you'll find 226 pages full of great advice in such chapters as "Hair that looks like you care"  - tricks to make you always 'paparazzi ready' and "Put down that chicken nugget" - which let's you know just how those little nibbles throughout the day can really add up.

Then there's "Chic and cool for the carpool" that touches on some great style & fashion tips and "Do your boobs hang low" that talks about plastic surgery. "It's never too late to shed the baby weight" has wonderful pointers on diet and exercise.




This book was just wonderful - covering topics that every woman experiences, in a humorous and practical fashion.  I have read this book a couple of times now and still go through it for tips and pointers.






I'd love to give one of you a copy as well. All you have to do is fill out the Rafflecopter form below and make sure you come back to fill out your daily options for even more chances to win! (please make sure to give form a couple of seconds to load/pop up)

  1. I always wear mascara when leaving the house. I have blond eyelashes that you can't even see without mascara.

  8. I must take along a foundation/powder comb compact and gloss . I'd say I must use mascara but I always put it on before I go anywhere and it seldom does anything but stay put.....

    1. I never got the hang of putting on more than one shade of eye shadow - I always feel like I look like someone punched me in the eye, but I love seeing a great eye all done up!
