Strut for Yourself: Super Giveaway

After seeing my friends walk down the runway at Strut, The Fashionable Mom Show, literally plucked from their lives and plopped on a runway in New York Fashion Week, I am more motivated by their strength and confidence than ever. Doing something that we must be removed from our comfort zone is always a good dose of perspective, and there is something almost always to be gained from it.

In this case, for me, it wasn’t only their vibrant smiles but the way they carried themselves down that slippery runway, strong footsteps and heads held high-in front of hundreds of people and a bevy of flashing lights. I’m not personally eager to do something of similar nature even if I did have the opportunity, but I can appreciate what it took for them to do that-and they absolutely exuded beauty and happiness. I know that, for me, I would have to feel like I looked nice enough to do something like that, whatever large or small task it took to get there.

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer is a very quick and fuss free product that not only makes the skin look radiant, but it feels that way too. And it moisturizes deeply and dries in seconds, so it’s a win-win as far as I’m concerned.

Win it!

I’m thrilled to be giving away one (1) Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer bottle and one (1) $100 gift card to buy new clothes to put it to the test. One of you to be able to put this to the test in your own life by finding a new outfit and trying out the fast-drying moisturizer for yourself!

  • Every day, I make sure that I take a nap when my babies do. When I am more rested, I am a more patient, better mom!

  • Oh naps are so luxurious but I can’t take them every day. I love my mascara so much, I need it every morning.

  • I try to take a run/walk every day if I can. I have more opportunities now that my youngest is in preschool.
    Thanks for the chance!

  • I drink water every day. I always did, of course, but now I drink lots of water, only water – except for some cran-raspberry juice. No more soft drinks. I feel better and I look better.

  • I follow Vaseline on twitter. @tammigirl –

  • I also like Vaseline on facebook.

  • Everyday I take time to use aromatic sugar scrubs while in the shower to make my skin feel good and refreshed. It gives me a few minutes to do something by myself for myself to make me feel relaxed.

  • Daily walks are what I do for myself.

  • As a newly-single-mom, my “treat for myself” is cleaning my face with the S.W. Basics cleanser and Toner.

  • sigh this product is such a great idea! I could so use this moisturizer since I literally neverrr apply lotion post shower because who has the time really?! The one thing I do daily just for me is read blogs, I am so motivated by all the women around me with great ideas who put to paper their thoughts. I used to love reading and writing before becoming a wife/mom when I had the time. Nowadays its hard picking up a book but reading quick blog posts from my favorite moms is inspiring and helps me still feel connected to the world amidst diapers, naps and clean up!

  • Having 6 kids, it’s very difficult to find time for myself, so when I do get a few extra minutes, after bedtime most days, I like to just sit down in my quiet room and watch a movie, or take a nice long bubble bath! Thank you for the opportunity to win a gift card and some awesome moisturizer!!! I don’t spend much money on myself, so this would be great!! Followed on twitter!!!

  • I get myself to the gym.. It’s the best thing I can do for myself and my girls :))

  • I go to the gym – it’s fantastic. 2 hours of paid childcare and I get my sweat on…

  • Daily? I nap and/or go to bed EARLY (like, 30 minutes after my kids sometimes…) – ah, the joys of a teething infant still waking up every 2-3 hours ALL NIGHT LONG. Weekly? Yoga and Zumba, giving me a couple of hours just to and for myself…

  • Everyday, I spend some quiet time in the morning by myself drinking coffee and reading something inspirational, whether it’s a devotional, the Bible, or an encouraging book. It definitely makes me feel good and helps me prepare for the craziness of the day ahead.

  • I take a soothing shower, exfoliate, put on some comfy socks and cuddle to an old friends episode.

  • After everyone is asleep and my evening ‘chores’ are done, I get myself cleaned up, moisturizer and crawl into bed with a glass of wine and a book until I am ready to doze off. Only way I can relax my brain for bed.

  • I take time to exercise!

  • Oh for me…its my nightly walk with my dog! I love going late at night(no cars out)…its so quiet and peaceful out! Time to just relax…and breathe! 🙂 (My favorite time…in the winter…when its snowing out….oh so beautiful…we LOVE it)
