Correcting Dark Circles #PGMom #BestBeautiful

Age brings on dark circles. At least that’s what many people say! I; for one, have had dark circles as far as I can remember. I’m a night owl and always have been … that may be the culprit; however, it doesn’t end there. In fact, there may be several factors that come into play!

When I was in my 20s I worked several jobs, had late nights studying, and barely got enough sleep. Back then, I began to realize that all the sun exposure during my teenage years were going to catch up with me one day. Shhh don’t tell anyone, back then I used to mix baby oil with paprika, rub it all over me, and ‘sun tan’ with it. I literally baked in the sun! Yes I did get great colour but I’m sure I damaged my skin too. Over the years, my dark brown circles were noticeable no matter what I did.  At whatever age, they were there.

Now, at 46, I notice the darkness under my eyes even more. That brown darkness is a familiar one; partly genetic and partly my fault. Ugh. I have continuously been trying to find the solution, and now have found one.

Luminous Dark Circle Correcting HydraSwirl uses a distinctive dual-swirl formula with a gel to hydrate and a cream to instantly reduce the appearance of dark circles.

Add to your skin care routine to:
• Instantly brighten the eye area by reducing the appearance of dark circles
• Hydrate to nourish under the eye area for a firmer, younger look.

To use: Massage a small amount of eye cream under the eye, on the eyelid, and around crow’s feet until thoroughly absorbed. Use twice daily, morning and evening. As with all skin care products, avoid direct contact with eyes.

Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Rest assured I have seen results since using Dark Circle Correcting formula. The area under my eyes look brighter, lighter, and firmer. The result is simple … I look my best.  My best-beautiful.

Getting Through Final Exams

I’ve survived the first week of exams! Yay! Ooops I mean, my daughter has survived her first week of exams! Semester one is over; which means there’s a couple week interval before second semester begins, and final exams have to be squeezed in. New courses will begin soon enough, but for now all that’s on the brain is “passing finals”.

I remember those days; albeit many years ago, like they were last week. Feeling unsure of oneself was the norm during those five long high school years. At least it felt like five long years! The reality is, five years go by far too quickly. Nowadays, high school is only four years long! Four years go by even more quickly.

At the end of my five years, I really wasn’t all that sure of what I wanted to become. I can only imagine that it’s that much more difficult to figure out what to become in a shorter time. This is exactly why I try to tell my daughter not to fret. High school is merely a stepping stone into adulthood, and anything that is required in life can always be achieved later (if not done in the younger years). What’s important is to enjoy getting through high school; this time will never return.

I don’t mean that one should ignore duty, or responsibility. Au contraire! I tell my daughter to try her best, and if it’s still not enough then she shouldn’t be too worried about it because life is long and will provide her many opportunities in the future. For example, if her grades aren’t good enough to be accepted into University (that’s if this is where she wants to go) then she can always apply as a mature adult. Life holds many options and many opportunities.

@Downy Wants You to #RipYourClothesOn!” – #PGMom LIMITED Giveaway CAN 20/02

I must join the #RipYourClothesOn movement because I simply LOVE the Downy scent!

You should know, this winter, Downy is challenging Canadians to share their favourite fashion looks that make them want to rip their clothes on. How? Sprinkle a little Downy Unstopables into a load of laundry and your clothes will smell so fresh that you’ll just have to cuddle up with your loved ones! Add Downy Infusions fabric softener to leave your clothes feeling extra soft with an added boost of irresistible scent.

Now that the holidays are over, the snow and cold weather that comes with the winter season begins to feel less festive and more bone chilling.  Arguably, the best feeling is being able to come in from the cold and change into the warmest,coziest outfit in the closet.  And wouldn’t it be nice to still feel sexy and inviting in that chosen outfit?

Now, as a PGMom, I get to do the same thing!  I received a $25 Joe Fresh gift card to get an item that would add to my look and; most importantly, allow me to feel super cozy and compfy.

2014-6-7_10-8-59

I have no problem in showing you the item that I selected … a yoga top! Don’t you love my feable attempts at being healthy?  Don’t you worry, I’ll get there!

IMG_0643

I love using  Downy Unstopables & Downy Infusions in my laundry; it makes everything smell fantastic.  The $25 Joe Fresh gift card certainly came in handy!  While I shopped at my local Loblaw store (you can choose to visit participating Real Canadian Superstore and Loblaw banner stores), I picked up several grocery items.  Don’t you love being able to cross off several ‘to do’ items off your list?!  P.S. you can pick up all your favourite Downy products at Real Canadian Superstore and Loblaw banner stores across Canada.

PRIZE:   a lucky winner will receive a bundle valued at $45* with Downy UnstopablesDowny Infusions & a $25 Joe Fresh gift card as well!
