Women, Motherhood and Independence: Book Review & Giveaway


Women, Motherhood and Independence.  A Guide to Financial Freedom, Beauty and Confidence After Childbirth written by Penelope Magoulianiti, has the aim of providing it’s reader with a route to achieving their dreams.

Penelope is herself a mother of two and knows all too well how difficult juggling family life and work can be.  Women, Motherhood and Independence draws on her own experiences as a mother and business owner, as well as the knowledge she has gained from her mentors. In combining her extensive knowledge Penelope has been able to give the reader the chance to see and believe that they can achieve great things, alongside being the best mother possible.

I was immediately drawn to this book as it’s no secret to my readers that I find being a SAHM very difficult.  This book offered me the ideal route to reflect on my life.  It helped me to step back to appreciate what’s good about it and what areas could use some work.  The beauty of this book is that it offers guidance on how to change the areas of your life you aren’t happy with, in order to work towards and achieve your ambitions!

At  the beginning of each paragraph Penelope has included an inspirational quote, this was something I looked forward to as I read on.  The use of these quotations fits in perfectly with the theme of the book.

Overall, I would highly recommend reading Women, Motherhood and Independence.  It offers the reader a starting pointing from which they can make the necessary changes in their lives, in order to continue to thrive and achieve!
