What do you get when you combine hilarious, intelligent women and their unabashed penchant for honesty? The answer: You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth and Other Things You’ll Only Hear From Your Friends In The Powder Room. This book is the culmination of centuries of feminine observations and experiences, finally shared without fear of society “putting a woman in her place” or of us feeling pressure to apologize for being real.
Lopsided boobs? Aren’t they all after a while?!
Women masturbate. And our grandmothers are no different.
Anyone else obsessed with online shopping? *Raises hand*
Think a first date ending with your gentleman caller taking IT out and placing IT on his leg only happens to Elaine on Seinfeld? Think again and BUY THIS BOOK!
You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth is fun humor, but it’s also empowerment. It’s truth and it’s solidarity. And I think that’s why I love it so much. I’m sick of hearing about Man Caves and The Old Boys’ Club and golf. I want more ladies In the Powder Room dishing about the realness of life. And I want every woman everywhere to celebrate it ALL! That’s exactly what Leslie Marinelli has given us with this book: a celebration of women being women. Sure some of the stuff isn’t exactly balloons and confetti-appropriate, but it’s life. A life that my grandmother’s generation wasn’t fortunate enough to discuss with their gal pals over coffee and the kind of laughter that made their sides ache. So kudos to Leslie for throwing a bunch of talented ladies together for the sake of sharing what used to be off-limits. It all just makes my heart so happy.
I want to make your heart happy, too, so I’m giving away a copy of the book signed by FOUR of the authors: Meredith of Mom of the Year, Stephanie of Binkies and Briefcases, and Ellen and Erin of Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms.

I know your life will be full of butterflies and rainbows (and, spoiler alert: a few tears; Bethany Thies and Liz Dawes saw to that), but here is what a few of the co-authors have to say about why you need You Have Lipstick On Your Teeth:
This book was like coming home. Coming home and finding all of my most hilarious friends drinking my booze, trying on my clothes (ahem, Meredith!) and talking about their gimpy boobs! Even though I finished the book months ago, it is still on my nightstand…it’s my whoopy blanket! –Kerry, HouseTalkN
Two reasons: I am now using all the books I bought for the signing as endtable, and would like to upgrade to something classier like a plastic crate. Please buy them so I can clear out and make the space. Also, the dress-buying problem may be semi-real and I need the cash to pay back Target. –Meredith, Mom of the Year
People should buy this book because sometimes, you just *need* to know that this kind of stuff is happening to other people out there, not just you. And believe me, when it’s happening to other people, it’s a lot funnier. –Robyn, Hollow Tree Ventures
This book is special because it celebrates the commonality of our spirit, and the beauty of everyday life. You will love this collection of stories, unless of course you don’t like to laugh and you don’t like to read. WARNING: There will be tears, both from your eye sockets and maybe your downstairs if your pelvic floor is weak like mine. –Amy, Funny is Family
You need this book in your life because it is the ultimate Girls Night Out conversation in literary form. Topics range from “My Vagina Is Like a Flower–a Cauliflower” to “The Last Nice Jewish Boy in Boston” to “Confessions of a Craft Hater.” If your GNO conversations aren’t like this, you need new friends. You can’t buy new friends, but you can buy this book to tide you over until you get some. –Ellen, Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms
Be sure to enter the giveaway before October 1st, which is when the winner will be chosen!
