Style and parenting blogger Jordan Reid, who lives in New York's Hudson Valley with her husband, two-year-old son and two dogs (and another baby on the way!), has been called "a star of the post-expertise how-to landscape" by the New York Observer, and her website, Ramshackle Glam, has been deemed a "survival guide for those who don't have a clue how to be domestic" by the Daily Beast.
Now Reid has released her debut book, Ramshackle Glam: The New Mom's Haphazard Guide To (Almost) Having It All. A memoir in the guise of a lifestyle guide (with tips on fashion, beauty, home decor and cooking for new mothers), the book is a deeply personal exploration of the realities of modern-day parenthood, covering topics ranging from post-partum depression and marital struggles to pets who immediately transform from your beloved best friends into Those Things That Wake Up Your Child. Reid’s spot-on advice combined with her trademark intimacy, wit, and (often aching) honesty make Ramshackle Glam a must-read for any woman in search of a candid account of how to handle enormous life changes with humor, grace . . . and a little bit of glam.
