Votre Vu and MAC Giveaway!!! *CLOSED*

 So I think you are all such great followers. Do you know that? I love hearing your emails and comments. Some have moved me to tears with how you had "given up" and not felt like you had the time to put any effort into "you". Trust me when I say that I have been in your shoes. I have woken up with two little boys, not had time to do ANYthing to or for myself and had no car to get around (we still only have one) so I figured, why get ready? What a WASTE of product when no one will see me. I barely even saw my husband during the years of working and going to school full time. I would be in bed most nights before he got home. I remember back to a time where I was counseled to look my best to feel my best. It didn't mean being overly shallow and obsessing about what I looked like on the outside. It means getting out of bed, knowing that you are important to not only your family but to someone who has a perfect love and wants to see you happy. For me that is my Heavenly Father and my Savior Jesus Christ. I am sorry if this offends anyone who isn't spiritual but it is who I am and I love what my faith offers me =). I know that I am important and it makes a difference when thinking about my inner and outer appearance. It's not rocket science to know that if you get out at least 3 times a week to exercise, even if it's not that strenuous, your body will thank you! Endorphins will be released leaving you happy and healthy. Washing your face every night will make you feel clean and will keep your face clear. Eating healthily will keep you energized and will help with clear skin. For those of you that are moms, set aside time for yourself to do a five minute "face" so that you feel ready to face the day. It could be the five minutes before your hubby gets home but make the time to feel pretty. I've been trying something new that I want to share. First off, I miss going to work (somewhat LOL) because I got dressed up, put makeup on and I felt a part of something...a team! What I have been doing is saying to myself Monday Wednesday and Friday are my "work days". I get up a bit earlier, put on my makeup and a nice casual outfit. Being a mom is my "job" so I plan activities, projects and meetings with my "team" (even if the attention span isn't the same LOL). My days off are for SURE earned and I wear sweats and no makeup if I feel like it =). I want you to know that each and every one of you is worth MILLIONS!!!!! Take the time to pat yourself on the back for the good that you do, the projects you either finish or even attempt to finish. Strive to be the type of person that everyone loves being around and you will be beautiful inside and out.

Having already written a novel it's time to give back to you to show my thanks. I am so excited to partner up with Marti to offer you a great beauty giveaway! You will be able to try out the amazing french skin care goodies that have been gracing several magazine covers and articles, a SIGMA trial sized brush, PLUS a 6 color MAC palette!!! It doesn't stop there, we are going to have two winners this time =). Our first prize winner will receive the Votre Vu Skin Care, the MAC shadow palette and the brush. Our runner up will also receive Votre Vu goodies in addition to my FAV lashes, the Demi Whispies in black and a Maxine's Mop brush!!! How do I enter? Well, I am so glad you asked ; ). It's really quite simple. You must:

- be a follower (that's a given right?) =) this is open world wide p.s.!!!
- be 18 years old or have parent's permission to give out address to receive prize
- refer as many people as you can to do the same
- leave a comment saying that you follow and anything else you want =D
- have your "referrals" do the same and list YOU as their referrer (is that a word?)

Our first prize will go to the person that refers the most people and our runner up will be chosen by random.org. Our contest starts today 4/10/2011 and end one week from today 4/17/2011 at midnight MST.  Good luck!!!

I love the tips I get here. I fall into the mom at home, barely seeing my hubby, 3 kids, and running on little time for myself. I have to agree though, sometimes it does a world of good to my soul to get dressed and do my makeup and hair. (even if it is only once a year..just kidding). I hope I win!

Love, love, LOVE your blog!!! I have an unhealthy obsession with my make up (my collection is quite large) and I just love watching the vids with your techniques! Whenever I'm watching one of your tutorials my hubby asks, "Are you watching that make-up girl again?" Haha! Love it! Thanks for having a giveaway! I would love to win, although the hubs doesn't think I need to add anymore shadow to the hundreds of colors I have... Whatever. :)
Have a lovely day!
