I am a proud, mother of 3 beautiful children under the age of 5. I mention them a lot and show them in my blog quite a bit, and that’s because 1. I’m proud of them and 2. they all like to be in front of the camera;-) And they keep things interesting!
As beautiful and wonderful as my kiddos are, they are exhausting, point blank. I don’t feel bad saying this, because I speak the truth, and I never feel guilty when I am speaking the truth! I am outnumbered everyday because there is 1 of me and 3 of them, simple math. Finding websites that help me get a handle on this mommy thing are a must to keep my sanity and to realize I’m not alone. However, these mommy websites MUST also provide me a bit of beauty (and yes, there is a makeup mention at the end of this blog if you could care less about mommy stuff!!), celeb gossip, and overall fun information to keep my attention- because being a mom doesn’t define me, but it is certainly a part of what makes me who I am today.
So I came across the Modern Mom website and became a fan/follower instantly. Celeb mom Brooke Burke (picture on the right- who looks that good prego??)was honestly a big draw (she’s their spokesperson so to speak) bc I love her on Dancing With The Stars and she has 4 kids- so she’s a valid spokesperson if she’s keeping up with 4 tiny humans, and looking as good as she does!
Right when I signed up to become a Modern Mom, I filled out a survey and one of the questions was to see if I wanted to try out certain products when they came available…for free! Um, yeah, who wouldn’t want to try out stuff for free?? So a couple weeks ago I got notified from Modern Mom, that I was being sent a 300 thread count down Side Sleeper Pillow from SleepBetter.org (how did they know I sleep on my side?? I don’t know, still puzzled by that one). Sleep is one thing that is very precious to me and helps me function and keep up with my wild bunch, so this pillow has been a dream- literally.
Pillows are personal, and everyone has different opinions on what is sleep worthy. I can’t believe I’m getting this excited about a pillow, but it has seriously made me enjoy going to bed more than ever. It’s fat, thick, luxurious, and my head sinks right into it. This is my chance to say thank you so very much to this ModernMom website and I’m a big fan of theirs- I check it out daily.
And now that I sleep like a rock thanks to my new pillow (and my daughter sleeping through the night!), I don’t need as much concealer to look like I’ve had my beauty sleep! However, I’ve also found a new blush by MAC, Fleur Power ($19.50), that instantly gives me radiantly pinky peach cheeks like my sweet baby!
This is the perfect coral/pink shade that is a universally flattering color on most skin tones (except for super dark complexions) and I am loving how alive and healthy it makes me look.
The perfect shade of blush + the perfect pillow = a well rested and refreshed looking JennySue!!
How important is your pillow and your blush- any favorites you can share??
