Valentine’s Ready

Motherhood continually proves that the little things bring joy.  Fleeting moments of in-my-face wake-up smiles and handmade “Valetimes” tucked under pillows will perpetually make my heart melt.  As will those stolen moments of time to reconnect with my husband.  Even if our special date night doesn’t coincide with the standard love day.

I’m a big believer in doing little things to make myself feel good.  Presenting my best self on the outside can help transform my attitude when inward stressors are present.  I’ll never believe that a woman’s self worth can be found in a make-up isle, but I will continue to covet my magic wands of mascara and the pop of color (and spirit lifting!) that the perfect lippy can bring.

I recently tested out NEUTROGENA’s® MoistureSmooth Color Stick and Healthy Volume® Mascara, and they’ve helped me achieve that put-together glam feeling, for a quick run to school pick-up or a special date sans kiddos.

The HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® program is offering great printable coupons (including $1 off any NEUTROGENA® Cosmetics product), tips, tools and much more.  Significant savings can be found on the HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® website this month and by signing up for extra-sweet HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® coupons and offers.

Happy Love Day everyone!

This post is part of the HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® 2014 program by Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. and The Motherhood, who sent me a box of products and compensated me for my time. As always, opinions are all my own.
