Teen Mom 2 star and New York Times Bestselling author Kailyn Lowry is at it again with her brand new book ‘Hustle and Heart’ (buy your copy here). Kailyn has let her life unfold in front of the cameras but there is certainly more to her than meets the eye and she is letting it all out in this book.

Hustle and Heart is packed with inspiring motivational messages, personal advice and relatable experiences for those making their way through life’s challenging mix of joy and hardship.”

 I had an amazing chance to dig in a bit more with Kailyn one-on-one and get some more details behind this big release of hers and I’m SO excited to share some of my interview with her to you all here exclusively! 

-How did you come up with the title of ‘Hustle and Heart’?

While I was attending a women’s business event in LA I saw a flyer that said “Hustle and heart will set you apart.” I looked at my friend Christa and said I’m going to write a book called Hustle and Heart talking about my journey through school and into my career and this flyer right here inspired it.

-What are you hoping your readers get out of reading this book?

I hope that people will read Hustle & Heart and understand that things aren’t always as they seem. I’m not as cold hearted and heartless as I have come across through tv. There is a past behind who I am today and I’m working hard to better myself.

-What was one of the most surprising things you learned about yourself while creating this book?

The most surprising thing is that there’s so much knowledge, advice and answers right in front of us…if we would just listen and apply it to ourselves. For Hustle and Heart I would literally carry around a notebook everywhere and write everything I liked, I heard around and applied it somehow to my life. 

Sometimes the best advice comes from someone who has lived it, someone who can truly relate, and I think a lot of people will find this in ‘Hustle and Heart.’ This book has a lot of juicy behind the scenes things too, like the chance that Teen Mom 2 is coming to an end and all the details behind her very public and nasty split with EX Javi Marroquin. She dishes details about his jealousy issues and how they may have led to the filing of their divorce. If you’re a Teen Mom fan and especially a Kailyn Lowry fan then make sure you grab a copy of ‘Hustle and Heart’ now!

I have been so lucky to  join Kail Lowry for this Virtual Book Tour in honor of  ‘Hustle and Heart’ and you can continue the fun by visiting these other awesome posts from this virtual blog tour, listed below!

ALSO, If you’re in the Baltimore area, you can meet Kail in person at her book signing March 25th at noon at John Hopkins University Barnes and Noble! Enjoy!

Here you will find everyday KIDspiration from kids play spaces to room décor, mom life and more. For more about this blog and me hit the “about me section” and keep reading!

    • #morethanmamahood // From as early as I can remember I wanted to be a mom. I had the amount of kids and how old I wanted to be when I was done having them in my head. I put it out into the universe on multiple occasions. The universe more than reciprocated my dreams by giving me the most incredible man to create a life with! But just as much as I wanted to be a mom I also wanted to follow my creative dreams too. It wasn’t until I had my first daughter that I realized I could do both. I was capable of creating exactly what I always dreamed of. This blog is more than just sharing products I love, it’s the creative outlet that I need to feel like me. I enjoy spending way too much time throwing a party that my friends can enjoy, or decorating a space I can share with family. I love helping brands that I adore to showcase their products so that other parents can be made aware of them. To create endless inspiration. This stuff makes me feel like me and nothing more! So I may be a mom but I’m also following my dreams ✨ I’m so thankful for the opportunity to team up with @wearingmomjeans (and some other amazing mamas!) on this ‘More Than Mamahood’ project and you can see the video we participated in on her page now! If nothing else I hope this opens your eyes to the possibility and happiness that you are deserving of, mama 💕 #motherhood #wereinthistogether
    • Take a tour of the playhouse before it gets decorated for our playroom reveal!
    • Giving you a tour of the under the stairs playhouse as it stands now on the blog tonight! The fort inside is just as well made as out the outside and I was happy to test it out for the kids 😜 They still haven’t seen it! It’s going to be good. Head to the link in my bio (I will post in stories too along with a video tour) for more! I’m so excited for the kids to see it! Their reaction will be part of a fun project I’m working on AND part of the big surprise I’m working towards being able to announce SOON ✨ Thank you for all your support, I’m just as eager to get talking 🥰 #underthestairsplayhouse #kidsinteriors
    • I am at a loss of words for the amazing video @isbellfamilyfilms put together for me using all the random videos I had in my phone from our vacation! These videos would have otherwise gotten lost in a sea of other videos but instead they turned them into this priceless family montage that we can enjoy for years to come! If you want to turn your random videos into something this beautiful don’t hesitate! Isbell Family Films works wonders 🎥✨I linked the full YouTube link in my stories as well! #familyvaca #familyvideography
    • Just two little boys looking more and more like big boys 😭💙 Remember when they were just born!? That was yesterday right? Knowing they’re my last two makes this whole growing up part even harder and so bittersweet! I’m so content being done with the baby phase of our life but watching the baby in them slip away is hard too. It’s such a weird place to be in. But we’re done. Totally done 🤣 Did you know when you were done having kids? I’d love to hear below! 👶🏻 🍼
    • Happy first (official) day of summer! We may have been on two summer trips already but we’ll still celebrate the #firstdayofsummer because we just love summer that much ☀️ #beachdays #summervacay
