by Jordan Reid
Pub Date 25 Mar 2014
The Daily Beast called Jordan Reid’s blog, Ramshackle Glam, the “survival guide for those who don’t have a clue how to be domestic.” Now Jordan Reid offers something fresh for the new-mommy bookshelf: a how-to guide for the first-time mom trying to navigate her new lifestyle while keeping a dose of glam in their lives.
Part memoir, part-commiseration, part how-to, Ramshackle Glam offers a witty, accessible take on the realities of parenthood and provides concrete advice on how to care for yourself in the post-partum days, weeks, and months. Featuring illustrations throughout, each chapter focuses on a different topic—fashion, beauty, home décor, quick recipes, entertaining, and more. Straightforward, fun, and easy, tips are woven into Jordan’s appealingly (and sometimes achingly) authentic account of what life as a new mother is really like. In Ramshackle Glam readers will find advice on:
–How to dress to celebrate (or downplay) your new shape while breastfeeding
–Tricks for rearranging your living room so it works with an infant as well as your tastes
–Quick tips for doing your makeup in five minutes flat with one hand while keeping that bouncy chair going with the other
–Plus much more!
Ramshackle Glam will help new moms feel a little more like their glam former selves, while still being the best mommy they can be.
