I mean, I never really had any real time on my hands. Yeah, Miss Missy is one of those "perfect" kids that takes care of herself and pretty much let her TV and her doll house keep her occupied, but there's nothing like being totally alone during the day.
So, now after goodness knows how many years of only knowing how to cater to my kids, I'm home alone.
If you know me, then you know that I spend A LOT of time at my kids' school. I mean, a whole lot! You'd think I was getting a paycheck!
But that's what I love, so that's what I do with my time.
Well this week, I got a lot of advice on what I SHOULD be doing with my new found freedom, none of which included volunteering at the school, mind you.
All were EXCELLENT ADVICE!!
My best friend has called me every day this week and asked if I'd done anything for myself (and to tell me to keep myself out of that school!)
If no one else, she knows that I rarely take time to take care of myself, to nurture myself, to pamper myself. I opt not to get my hair and nails done, as there are more important things to take care of with that cash... football registrations, birthday parties, school clothes. You know, those pesky little everyday life expenses.
Well, I DID take a little time and have a little ME time. Something that is a luxury to me is a bath. I get a good shower in everyday, but to sit in the tub with bubbles, music, a book and maybe a candle lit, is a luxury that this mom only sees every blue moon.
But when Amy at MomSelect offered me a little box of goodies from Suave, the first think I thought about was trying it out in a bath!
Here's what was in my wonderful little box:
· NEW Suave® Naturals Wild Cherry Blossom Indulgent Body Wash
· Suave® Naturals Body Washes for luxurious lather and perfect nose bliss: Apricot Exfoliating and Ocean Breeze
· Suave® Body Lotions for clinically-proven moisturization: Advanced Therapy and Cocoa Butter with Shea
Suave is striving to create relationships with the African American mom community, though their products are obviously suitable for use by anyone.
Now, I'm one of those folks that doesn't really buy the cheaper body products because in my experience, the scents dont last as long, the lotions don't get rid of the ash, or they give me hives! (that's a whole nother story!)
Well I decided to give these a try, to see if, as the commercials claim, Suave really could stand up to the other more expensive products I like to use.
So into the tub I went, the first chance I got. It was not only nice to be able to take a bath without kids knocking on the door to tell me that there were no more paper plates, or that one of the others wouldn't stop passing gas, but the scent of the Apricot Exfoliating Body Wash was AMAZING! My favorite out of the 2 lotions was the Cocoa Butter with Shea. As you can tell, I'm all about good smells! LOL! The Advance Therapy did surprise me, as I expected to feel dry by the middle of the day, but found it to work as well as my current lotion. GOLD STAR!
Holly Robinson Pete, actress and celebrity Mom, has also offered her personal tops for feeling beautiful every day.
So, if you're like me and never take that time to pamper yourself, try some of Suave's products and “Showering Themselves Beautiful” this summer.
