Nikki Oden, a mother of two under two, was perplexed by the mothers who appeared to have ample time to exercise, prepare home-cooked meals, volunteer, work, and straighten their hair. Oden normalizes the face-plants of motherhood and imparts realistic life lessons gleaned from her own “trial and improvement” (note that she does not say “error”) experiences. Her book is brimming with honest truth bombs and sincere encouragement.

“I had no idea what I was doing, and most days, didn’t brush my teeth,” remebered Nikki Oden. “I completely lost myself in being ‘Mommy’ and ‘Wife. Moms can be incredibly mean to themselves. Speak to yourself the way you would speak to someone you love.”

Because no mother has the time to read a long book, But Definitely Wear Mascara has short chapters on specific topics like Make Yourself a To-Do List, The Power of a Morning Routine, Getting Stuff Done When Your Kids Are Home, and Perfect, Schmerfect. Oden writes in a lighthearted, conversational style, which readers can enjoy from beginning to end.

But Definitely Wear Mascara is a book written by a working mom who knows what she’s talking about and is full of practical and honest advice told through funny stories. Readers will be entertained, inspired, and given the tools they need to create the life, love, and motherhood of their dreams.

Oden left a lucrative legal career to be a stay-at-home mom before eventually returning to the profession part-time to find the right balance.

“Being a mom is hard,” said Nikki Oden. “And being a mom with goals and dreams is even harder. All moms struggle with harmonizing what they have to do with what they want to do, and it’s OK to fall down along the way. How often do you say to yourself, I love my mom life? A lot, hopefully! If, on the other hand, you sometimes feel like motherhood is one long ride on the Hot Mess Express, you’re not alone.”

Nikki Oden is a happy wife, mother of two, lawyer, and mom coach who teaches working mothers how to conquer their goals and own their days without feeling guilty about being a mom. She is the author of But Definitely Wear Mascara:, the host of the Love Your Mom Life podcast, and the founder of Your Ideal Mom Life. Tips for Increasing Your Self-Love in Your Motherhood The Boston Globe, TODAY Parents, CafeMom, KidSpot, Clean Plates, and Authority Magazine have all featured her work.
