Where to find the ultimate mom fashion guide

On Amazon, that’s where!  My book, Escape from Ugly Mom Island, is available!  You can either buy it for your kindle for 2.99 or as a paperback for 7.99.  The illustrations on kindle will be in color.  The book’s illustrations are in black and white.  (If I wanted color illustrations, Amazon said I would have to charge 28.00 a book!  That’s like a Taschen book!  A little crazy, in my opinion.) Both the kindle and paperback options look great.  So…

Hippie and Artsy Mom illustrations on pinterest…

Okay, I swear, I’m going to stop posting illustrations very soon.  I’ve got two more up right now — Hippie and Artsy Mom — all really fun.  All worth taking a look-see. My book is coming out next Monday and if I look at it, proof it, or make any more changes on it, I am going to go completely insane.  Do you know that feeling?  You have some work project and you just stare and stare at it and…

Rock illustrations on pinterest!

Rock illustrations on pinterest!

These illustrations are some of my absolute favorites in Escape from Ugly Mom Island.  Every time I look at them I think, I should be dressing more like this.  Forget my carefree bohemian look, I want to be a bad-ass!  But Rock & Roll isn’t really my personality.  I never go to concerts, it only takes one beer to make me drunk and thanks to my children, the songs that run through my head currently aren’t cool, alternative rock songs,…

Mod illustrations on pinterest!

I’ve got my Mod illustrations from my book on pinterest now.  During My Year of Fabulous, my Mod month was definitely one of my hardest.  The whole colorful mini dress thing was like some sort of nightmare for me.  My look is so hippie  — earth-tones, jeans and chunky belts — that putting on Mod clothes felt like I was headed to a costume party.  And in fact, I looked exactly like I was headed to a costume party many…

Euro on pinterest!

Euro on pinterest!

I just put the Euro illustrations on pinterest for my book, Escape from Ugly Mom Island!  (Shameless promotion).  Maybe I’m excited because I love the illustrations and maybe I’m excited because I had enough time to put something on pinterest!  (Probably both). I also had enough time on pinterest to look at gorgeous patios that my children and animals would ruin, beautiful vacations that were in no way kid-friendly and clothes I would love to wear after I go to…

mom sunglasses

If I could make a coffee table book, it wouldn’t be about the natural wonders of the Earth or the city lights of Paris, it would be filled with nothing but pictures of mom sunglasses…  ruined mom sunglasses.  Nothing has seen more damage by having children than my sunglasses (unless you want to count my vagina.) Here’s my most recent pair of sunglasses — I’m not kidding.  They are so dead it’s ridiculous.  They were horribly scratched even before they…

Classic!  On Pinterest…

Classic! On Pinterest…

In anticipation of my book coming out on April 20th (which someone pointed out is Hitler’s birthday), I have decided to put all of the book’s illustrations up on Pinterest. I’ve been on Pinterest since My Year of Fabulous, but I’ve never really been that into Pinterest… You know, there are people that are into Pinterest, really into Pinterest, and then those that aren’t.  I would fall into the second category.  It’s not that I don’t like Pinterest — it’s…

Is it bad to be a label slave?

Is it bad to be a label slave?

I was flipping through racks at a consignment store the other day when I came across a shirt that I thought was either unique and cute or totally ugly — I couldn’t decide.  The body of the shirt was a kind of doctor’s scrubs material and then the sleeves were in a knitted pattern.  It almost looked homemade and that’s what scared me about it. I almost put the shirt back on the rack, but then I looked at the…

My book is available!

My book is available!

… For pre-order, at least.  The official publication date is April 20th (or for all you stoners, April 20th, Dude), but you can actually go to Amazon and pre-order it right now!  Click here if you can’t wait a second longer! The reason why it’s not available for release until then is because I’ve sent it out to be reviewed and that takes about a month or so.  But I have to say, I’m really, really happy with the way it…
