Just in time for beach reading this summer: Lyss Stern returns with a second book!

Motherhood Is a B#tch!: 10 Steps to Regaining Your Sanity, Sexiness, and Inner Diva, by Lyss Stern, founder of Divalysscious Moms, is a new book for all moms – ranging from the stressed-out working mom to the harried stay-at-home mom – who have sacrificed their lives, careers, bodies and sanities to become mothers. 
Lyss shares that it’s totally possible for a woman to maintain style, confidence and “divalyssciousness” while caring for a baby and beyond! The book is the modern day Eat, Pray, Love for Mommywood... How Lyss got her Groove back!

Bravo’s Jill Kargman said, "Her hilarious writing will make you laugh out loud, but, more importantly, it will make you feel understood. Don't listen to the mommy noise. Follow your gut, do the best you can, and ‘lyssen’ to Lyss!"
With smart food tips and recipes from celebrity nutritionist’s Kerri Glassman and Tayna Zuckerbrot, no excuse exercises that you can do anywhere from the founders ofExhale Studio and Beauty tips from renowned artist Laura Geller to make you feel like you did before baby but in a flash!

Fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff said, “finally, a book that doesn’t sugarcoat the idea of what it is to be a mother. Basically, we are f#cking warriors.”

The book provides helpful hints and tips to prioritize, organize and delegate, including:

  • 5 B#tchy Mantras to Recite Every Day
  • The B#tch Recipe Box – including the B#tchtini cocktail!
  • The B#tch Music Playlist

Actress Kelly Rutherford said, "Lyss tells it like it is while making us laugh at all the craziness and chaos that is motherhood. Her message is empowering—go forth and be fierce! Her book is an eye-opener that every modern mom needs to read!"

The book, which is a follow up to her 2009 best-seller, If You Give a Mom a Martini… 100 Ways to Find 10 Blissful Minutes for Yourself, is the modern mom’s guide for dealing with the day-to-day chaos of child rearing with style, savvy and grace. The book provides an easy, light-hearted program to empower frazzled moms to channel their inner b#tch and seize control of their lives. Lyss tells it like it is, explaining how women can lose their sense of self once they have children and why it’s important to reclaim it! It’s a lighthearted, fun and easy read with an important message.

Meet Lyss at Babypalooza on July 12 and tell her how you find your inner diva at @Diva_Moms.
